  • Troubleshooting a Faulty Brake Actuator Coupler That Will Not Reattach to Hitch Ball
    When you say the tongue will not fall down, it sounds like the shock in the actuator may need to be replaced. There may be a few other parts that could be rusted, bent or broken. Replacing parts in the brake actuator coupler is not an easy task and usually requires a mechanically inclined person. Another factor to consider is that by the time you purchase all of the replacement parts you are better off replacing the entire coupler and having all new parts. I would not recommend replacing...

  • Titan BrakeRite 1 Plug and Play part # T4813102 Pressure Rating
    The psi rating for the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit # T4813102 that you referenced is 1,600 psi as that's the correct rating for disc brake applications. To use this with lower PSI drum brake applications you'd need the part # T4844100 which is a pressure reducer.

  • Adding a Brake Controller For Trailer with Surge Coupler
    It sounds like you're wanting to use an electric over hydraulic braking system, which is kind of a hybrid between the surge brake system and an electric braking system. You'd retain the hydraulic brakes on your trailer, but you'd either replace the existing coupler with a standard one, or place a bolt side to side through the coupler so it can't slide any more. You'd then add an electric over hydraulic actuator to the trailer, like part # T4813102. If you have drum brakes, you would add...

  • Will Titan BrakeRite Electric/Hydraulic Actuator w/Adapter Fit 2008 Ford F-250 w/Factory Controller
    The Titan adapter # T4845900 will work with the factory integrated brake controller in your 2008 Ford F-250 as long as you are using the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit, # T4813102 with disc brakes or for drum brakes, you use the same actuator # T4813102 with a reducer # T4844100. I have included links to a couple of helpful articles on the parts needed to add electric over hydraulic disc or drum brakes to a trailer.

  • Do I Need An Adapter for the Titan BrakeRite II w/ 2013 Ford F-150 and Factory Integrated Controller
    One of the most important considerations here is what type of brakes your trailer currently has, since disc brakes and drum brakes require different pressures to activate. The good news is that your 2013 Ford F-150 can use the Titan BrakeRite SD Adapter # T4845900 with the Titan BrakeRite II # T4835700 and make it compatible with the factory brake controller. If you have disc brakes, the BrakeRite II will work perfectly since it supplies 1600psi of pressure. If you've got drum brakes on...

  • Adapter For A 2011 Chevrolet 3500 Factory Brake Controller With Dexter Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
    Unfortunately we are not aware of an adapter for Dexter hydraulic brakes with a factory brake controller in a 2011 Chevrolet 3500. The Adapters for the Titan Brakerite are specifically for their Brakerite actuator and are not compatible with other actuators. Similarly, Hydrostar makes an adapter for their actuators, but Dexter does not yet. The best recommendation I can give you is an aftermarket brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles...

  • Will HydraStar Brake Actuator Serial Number 702240 Fit Both 2012 Dodge Ram and 2005 Ford F-250
    My technical contact at Cargo Towing Solutions, manufacturer of HydraStar actuators, confirmed that your Carlisle brake actuator (thank you for including your photo) with serial number 702240 is a generation 5 and should work on both your 2012 Dodge 2500 and your 2005 Ford F-250. We have found that the compatibility with Dodge OEM brake controllers has been hit and miss with the HydraStar actuators, so if you do have problems between the actuator and your Ram, the best solution is to install...

  • Titan Replacement Brake Actuator
    To replace your current Titan actuator you are going to need to purchase the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit item # T4813102. The replacement actuator is out of stock and the only way to get a replacement is to buy the entire kit. Yours was probably cut and wired which is why it is not a plug and play. To use this actuator with drum brakes you are supposed to use the Drum Brake Reducer for Titan BrakeRite Systems item # T4844100.

  • Adapter to Convert BrakeRite to Drum Brakes and Connect to Integrated Brake Controller
    To convert a Titan BrakeRite from a disc brake application to a drum you would need the adapter you mentioned part # T4844100 and then to use with integrated brake controllers you would also need the # T4845900. These both plug inline like you mentioned. Then for a breakaway kit you'd want the part # T4822100. You would not need an SD controller. If needed your trailer would have already have that.

  • How Much Pressure Does an Electric Over Hydraulic Trailer Brake Actuator Put Out
    The maximum for disc brakes and the Carlisle actuator # HBA16 is 1600 psi. If you are looking for a drum brake actuator then use # T4813102 and add the reducer # T4844100. Drum brakes require less pressure, 1000 psi maximum. The Titan actuator reaches full psi pressure in 1.3 seconds. It ramps it up from the minimum amount of pressure that brakes require up to that maximum. The pressure in the lines is going to be different and it depends on several factors like the brake line size and...

  • How Does a Trailer Brake Controller Sense when a Trailer is Connected on a 2011 Chevy Silverado
    Aftermarket brake controllers send a small amount of voltage along the brake output wire, if a trailer is connected, the magnets in the brake assemblies will create a power draw. This power draw tells the controller that a trailer is connected. The integrated brake controller in your 2011 Chevy Silverado could possibly work in the same manner. I do not have much experience with them to say for sure. What I do know is that integrated brakes controllers often have trouble with electric...

  • Is Electric-Over-Hydraulic Actuator # T4813102 Needed to Install Electric Trailer Brakes
    An electric-over-hydraulic actuator such as the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit # T4813102 with the reducer # T4844100 is needed only if your trailer uses hydraulic, rather than electric, drum-type brakes. The brake assembly you referenced, # 23-459 and its left-hand mate # 23-458, are electric trailer brakes that will operate without the actuator since they are activated by an electric trailer brake controller such as the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. I...

  • Is the 2005 Ford F-350 Factory Brake Controller Compatible with Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
    The factory integrated brake controller in your 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty will most likely not work with an electric over hydraulic system. But there is a solution. You can use the Roadmaster Brake Rite EHB system, # T4813100 for disc brake application or # T4822500 for drum brake applications. With these systems, you can use the Titan BrakeRite EHB Adapter, # T4846000. With this set up, the factory brake controller will communicate correctly with an electric over hydraulic braking system. Another...

  • Recommended Electric-Over-Hydraulic Brake Actuator
    You should select a brake actuator that is designed specifically for the type brakes you have on your trailer. Hydraulic disc brakes operate at a higher pressure (1,500 psi) than drum brakes (1,000 psi), so you have to make sure that the actuator you want to use is compatible. You will also need a brake controller like the P3, part # 90195, in the towing vehicle. For an electric over hydraulic system for disc brakes I recommend part # HBA16. This actuator has a maximum output pressure...

  • Switching Over a Triple Axle Gooseneck Trailer from Electric to Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
    Yes, you should be able to switch your triple axle gooseneck trailer over to hydraulic drum brakes from the existing electric brakes. You would need to select the proper hydraulic brake assemblies by axle capacity and brake mounting flange pattern, then add brake lines to the trailer and install an electric over hydraulic actuator on the trailer. You will also need an electric brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic units. Your existing brake hubs should work with...

  • Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator and Breakaway Kit for a 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    The Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit, # T4813102, that you have referenced would be my first choice. The compatible breakaway system is the Gel Cell Breakaway Kit, # T4822100. It includes two 5-amp hour batteries connected in parallel that provides the 15 minutes of breakaway required by the Department of Transportation. You will also need a brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes. If you have a brake controller already and...

  • Converting Military Trailer Air Over Hydraulic Drum Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic
    You are correct, there are 4 electric over hydraulic braking systems, from 3 manufacturers, that can be used to eliminate the air over hydraulic actuator on your M200A1 trailer. These systems all require a breakaway system to meet DOT safety standards. I will detail each system for you so you can select the one that will work best for your truck and trailer setup. First, the Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, # K71-650, would be a good choice because it will work with the OEM...

  • Comparing the HydraStar Hydraulic Actuator and the Titan BrakeRite Hydraulic Actuator
    It looks like you have certainly done your research in regards to the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator and the Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator. In regards to repose time, this goes to the Titan BrakeRite EHB with a response time of .3 seconds whereas the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator has a response time of .8 seconds. This is due to the five vs three piston pumps that each respective units use. In regards to the Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic...
