Review of Dexter Brake Actuator - Adjustable Channel 2-5/16 Inch Coupler - T1889800

Hi everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com. Let's take a look at this Dexter adjustable channel drum brake actuator. This adjustable channel surge type actuator is going to activate your trailer's drum brakes when your tow vehicle slows or stops. When you apply your brakes in your tow vehicle, as you know, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer towards the rear of your vehicle. So, with surge brake systems, the actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while your tow vehicle slows down. This actuator telescopes applying the force to the master cylinder, which in turn is going to supply the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage your trailer brakes. more
