Video Transcript for Review of Demco Brake Actuator - Replacement Master Cylinder - DM5918

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at the replacement disc brake master cylinder with the bypass electric lockout for Demco actuators. Now this replacement master cylinder is designed for use with the Demco trailer brake actuators that have the electric reverse lockout. It is designed to work with the Demco brake actuator model DA66D, DA86, the DA91, the DA10, the DA16, and the DA20 models. This is an electric reverse lockout, it'll let you back up without activating your trailer brakes.The solenoid right here will activate automatically when you shift into reverse. You can see the two wires, there's two black wires here, one will connect to a good clean ground, the other connects to the reverse light circuit and the wires are both black wires so either wire will connect to either function.

This does have the bypass configuration. Now the measurement up at the top, the bolt holes here, they measure center to center, three inches by two inches, and the overall dimensions at the top, it's going to be right at four and a half inches by three and a quarter inches.But that should do it for the review on this replacement disc brake master cylinder with the bypass electric lockout for Demco actuators.

The initial product had a problem with the solenoid after about 6 months after installation. The solenoid did not respond to the 12V reverse signal. Although customer service could not replace the total unit, they were able to have the vendor send a replacement solenoid at their expense. The solenoid showed up later than promised, however, it did respond to the 12V signal. The unit now works. I now see that the solenoid can now be purchased individually. Thanks for the opportunity to share this review and I appreciate customer service helping to resolve this issue.

Your company did what it said it would, in a very timely time..The lights were as I needed, would buy from you again.. The brake cylinder also fits my trailer and the price was right.

the solenoid failed I need to replace a gain.


Comments
I spoke with my contact in the Tech Support department at Demco, who tells me its pretty rare for those solenoids to fail after only one year. What is much more likely is that the solenoid is not getting sufficient power, or the ground connection isnt secure enough. Instead of grounding the solenoid to the trailer frame, tie it into the ground for the trailer connector which will ensure a good ground connection. Youll also want to check the solenoid power feed and make sure youre getting a full 12-volts. If its not a wiring issue and the solenoid needs replacing, we carry a replacement as part # DM5404

In less than one year the reverse solenoid went out. I saw in another review this same issue happened. My solenoid was wired directly to the vehicle ground supply and is getting 14.3 volts.
