Video Transcript for HydraStar Hydraulic Brake Line Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at HydraStar's Hydraulic Brake Line Kit for Tandem Axles. You can get these with a 30 foot long main line with part number HS496-252, or a 15 foot long main line with part number HS496-152.The brake line kit is gonna include one long line, a six foot long to go from one side of the axle to the opposite side, and two four and a quarter foot long brake lines to go from your front axle to your back axle. This is also gonna come with four 3/16" flex lines to connect to your brake calipers. And you're gonna get all the union and hardwares you need to connect it.The brake lines are make of a durable, corrosion resistant copper nickel alloy. The flexible liens have a kink-proof design, and they're great for foldaway trailer tongues.Now on our 5th wheel here, we've mounted our brake actuator here inside our front compartment. Our brake line attaches to the back side.

I went ahead and drilled a hole in the bottom of the compartment and ran the brake line down through the hole.To ensure that we bend our brake lines properly without causing any kinks in the line, we're using a special tool for bending those brake lines. You can pick up these tools at your local automotive store.And then we began routing it back towards our axles. Our longest line finished its point here at our axle on our passenger side. We used the four-way union to connect one brake hose to the wheel right here. We used the medium sized line to run across our axle.

And we used one of the two short lines to go from this axle to the axle right behind it.The line that routed across to our driver side we connected here to the three-way union. One brake hose connects to that, and the other end of the three-way will go back towards the axle and the rear using that short line, again we have two of these short lines. The other end of our short lines will go to a straight union that'll connect the line to the brake hose.And now I wanna tighten them down using a 3/8" line wrench, which is available here at etrailer.com, and a half inch wrench just to hold your union fitting in place while you're tightening it down. Our brake hose hooks up on the backside here. Now, you can bleed the breaks and you're all set.And that completes our look at HydraStar's Hydraulic Brake Line Kit for Tandem Axles..

Great kit. All the parts fit with a little overlap for some tighter fittings. No spills, no drips, no mess after running the boat and trailer over 1000 miles, braking hard when necessary, if some careless motorist tries to cut in before a tight turn or exit. Did not have to add any extra brake fluid, once it was installed and purged. 372984

Ask the Experts about this Hydrastar Accessories and Parts


  • Can Actuator, Harness and Brake Lines be Purchased as a Kit?
  • The HydraStar Vented Marine Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator # HS381-8065 is available in a kit. The HydraStar Marine Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator with Breakaway and 7-Way RV Harness # HS381-9065 features the actuator, breakaway system and 7-way connector. The only other piece you'd need is the brake lines; for a single axle you would want the HydraStar Hydraulic Brake Line Kit # HS496-151 and for a double axle you would want # HS496-152. I've added links to video reviews of these...

  • Advantage of Converting to Electric-Over-Hydraulic Disc Brakes from Electric Brakes
  • Disc brakes have better stopping power than electric brakes. They're also lower maintenance because they have fewer moving parts. You'll also gain power going to electric over hydraulic because you have the advantage of the stopping power of hydraulic brakes combined with the reaction time of electric brakes. I've linked an article that explains the parts needed to convert to disc brakes. You'll already have some of them like the brake controller and breakaway kit. But electric brakes...

  • Parts Needed For Converting 5th Wheel Trailer With Tandem Axles To Disc Brakes
  • We have just what you need to convert to disc brakes on your fifth wheel trailer. First, I recommend the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, part # K2HR526D. This is for one axle so for a tandem trailer you will need to order 2 kits. This kit has a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. The inner bearing has a 1.750 inner diameter and the outer bearing has an inner diameter of 1.250 inches. For a brake line kit I recommend part # HS496-152 for a 15-ft kit, and part # HS496-252 for a 25-ft kit. These are designed...

  • Disc Brake Kit with 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern for 7,000 Pound Axle
  • Since you have 6 lugs it's very possible you have 6,000 pound axles. But either way you can upgrade to an 8 lug for 7,000 pound axles. You'll need to replace the bearings, races, and seals to match the new sized hubs. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR712E with Bearing Kit # BK3-200 will work great on your trailer. These have an e-coat finish to help prevent corrosion from the elements. If you don't already have disc brakes you're also going to need an electric over hydraulic actuator...

  • Troubleshooting HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Drum Brakes
  • I was unable to find an order number for you so I don't know the exact set up you used to install the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Drum Brakes - 1,000 psi # HBA-10, but the issue doesn't seem to be the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller # 90885. The issue is almost certainly the wiring or brake lines you are using, and it is strongly recommend you use 10 gauge wire # 10-1-1 for the power lead of the actuator. Additionally, your brake links may be too small...

  • Converting to Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brakes From Electric Brakes on Trailer With 7K Axles
  • There are a number of parts you will need to replace the electric drum brakes on your trailer, and though there is not an all-in-one kit I can let you know the parts you need, starting with a disc brake assembly to replace your current hub and drum. I contacted Lippert with the serial number from you axle and based off what they told me the the correct brake kit is the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR712D which is for 7,000 lb axles and has an 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern for your wheels. These...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brakes to Trailer
  • A great disc brake kit for your trailer is the Kodiak # K2HR526D. This includes two brake assemblies with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. They include the mounting bolts as welll. Since your trailer has hub and drum assemblies now you need to replace them with rotors. If your trailer is a tandem axle the brake line kit I suggest is the HydraStar # HS496-152. If it isn't a tandem axle or you need a different length I've linked our selection of other HydraStar kits. For an actuator the...
