Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Installation - 2020 Jayco Seismic 5W Toy Hauler

Shane: Hey everyone, Shane here with eTrailer.com. Today I have a 2020 Jayco Seismic Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler and I'm going to walk with you how to install Kodiak's Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brake Set.This kit is going to come designed to complete one axle. It's going to come with your rotor, it's going to come with your caliper, break pads, and your cap for your oil. Keep in mind this is an oil bath bearing setup, which is what I would prefer. They're a lot easier to maintain over the actual greasing of them because with the grease ones you have to pull the bearings out, if the bearings are damaged at all you've got to replace them, but you've got to pull that old grease out and re-grease them. With these, once that oil starts to get a little bit low or wore out all you've got to do is add more oil. more

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at these Kodiak E-coated Disc Brake Kit with the 13 inch diameter rotors, the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern for 8,000 pound Dexter axles. Now these brake assemblies will make it easy to change from an idler axle to a disc brake axle. The disc brakes will deliver better performance than drum brakes, gives you more consistent stopping even at highway speeds and dramatically shorter stopping distances. Also the maintenance costs are lower than for drum brakes, because you have fewer moving parts to maintain repair or replace.Now, this kit will include everything I got laid out here on the table. It's two full brake assemblies, so they get the two E-coated cast iron slip on rotors, the two E-coated cast iron calipers, the two E-coated ductile iron caliper mounting brackets, and then the four stainless steel caliper mounting bolts.If you notice all these parts have an E-coat finish on them, the calipers, the brackets provides a nice corrosion resistance for freshwater and limited saltwater use. more

Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. And today we're going to be taking a look at the Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit. This is going to be for the right-hand side, or your passenger side, on your trailer. The reason why you'd want to replace the whole drum brake on your assembly is to make sure that everything's going to be wearing the same. That way you don't have to worry about your brake shoes failing before any of your other components in your kit, you don't have to get in there and do maintenance six months down the road. It's all going to be fresh, and new, and ready to go. more

Titan Disc Brake Assembly Installation

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Titan disc brake assembly with a 13 inch hub and rotor assembly, eight on six and a half bolt pattern, with a dacromet finish, rated for 7000 pounds. This is part number THRCM13378DACEK. Here's what our brakes look like installed. Now this kit is a great option for you, because it has everything that you need in order to place one side of your axle brakes. You'll have a brand new rotor and hub assembly, a brand new loaded caliper, with your brake pads, and one thing that sets this apart from others is that this kit does come with new bearings and a seal, but it also comes with this bearing buddy here. Just take this cap off, and then this bearing buddy will force grease into your bearings so they're continuously greased as you're driving down the road, and that'll help reduce friction and heat and extend the service life between having to grease bearings.Now these brakes have a 7000 pound capacity, and they'll work with 7000 pound axles that have a five bolt mounting flange on them. more

Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Review- Video

Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Kodiak line of Disc Brake Kits. Now, these kits are available in multiple configurations to fit multiple size axles. They're also available in several different finishes.A disc brake kit like this one from Kodiak is an excellent solution to give us good braking force. Typically, for this kit anyway, you're looking at like a 3500-pound axle. A lot of boat applications, you're hauling a boat sometimes miles and miles and miles, and without brakes on your trailer, you put a lot of unnecessary stress and strain on your truck. A braking kit like this allows us to take the stress, the strain off the braking system on our truck but also gives us a safer ride.In this application we've got a surge coupler at the front of the trailer, so as the truck slows it applies the hydraulic fluid pressure, squeezing our caliper together giving us excellent stopping abilities. more

Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the 10 inch Dexter Never Adjust electric trailer brake kit, for 3,500 pound axle, for the left and right hand side. It's going to be part number 23-468-469. It's also available individually for the left hand side using part number 23-468, and the right hand side, using part number 23-469. So here's what our brakes are going to look like once we have them installed. Now these are going to be a 10 inch diameter brake and be about 2-1/4 inches deep.Now one of the nicest things about these brakes is the fact that we're not going to have to adjust them, maybe the initial adjustment up front, but after that, they're going to be self adjusting. So wherever the brakes start wearing down, they're going to automatically adjust out, so they're at the right pressure. more

etrailer Uni-Servo Free Backing Hydraulic Brake Kit Installation- Video

etrailer Uni-Servo Free Backing Hydraulic Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the hydraulic brake kit U-Servo 00:00:02 free backing 12 inch left and right hand brake assemblies for five and a half thousand to seven thousand pounds. That's gonna be part number AKFBBRK-7.So here's what our brake assembly's gonna look like. The biggest benefit to our brake assembly here is that it is an entire assembly. We're not gonna have to worry about getting the hardware kit, a wheel cylinder, or anything else. As well as putting on the pads, they are hydraulic brake assemblies, which means they're gonna work with surge-type brake actuators.What's nice about these assemblies is that they have a free backing design. And what that means is, it's gonna let you back up without engaging the brakes, even if the actuator is activated.The fall-away brake shoe is only gonna anchor on the drum when the brakes are engaged, as the trailer is moving forward.The pads are gonna be fully bonded into the shoes and not riveted, which means that they're gonna give it a longer life and more of a bite on those brakes.The tapered edge at the bottom of our pad is gonna help prevent any kind of cracking and crumbling that can lead to a mechanical lock-up.Our brake assemblies are gonna have a fine tooth adjustment gear, and that's gonna allow us to fine tune our brakes, but it is a manual adjustment, so we are gonna have to check our brakes and adjust them periodically.There is gonna be a plug on the back that's gonna help keep out all the dirt and debris from getting inside, and this is right where we're gonna make our adjustments at.Now, the mounting flange bolt pattern is gonna be a five bolt, and it's gonna fit wheels 14 1/2, 15, 16, and 16 1/2 inch.Our brake assembly is gonna work with axles that are rated at 5,200, 6,000, and 7,000 pounds.Now, this is gonna include the left and right hand assemblies, so to start out, we're gonna go ahead and remove our drums so we can pull off this cap. more
