Flexible Rubber Brake Hoses

Kodiak brake hoses are made of rubber, making them a practical choice for a variety of applications. Because you can easily bend them, rubber hoses are simpler to work with than rigid stainless steel brake lines. This flexibility makes rubber hoses great for use with foldaway trailer tongues because they are less likely to kink or break when bent. In addition, rubber hoses allow for a wide range of motion so articulating parts can effectively function. These qualities make rubber hoses better suited than steel lines for trailers with torsion axle suspension systems and trailers that have disc brakes.


Stainless steel brake lines have braided exteriors, which can not only wear against exterior surfaces, but also against the interior lining of the hose if dirt gets underneath the steel braid. And if the braid on a stainless steel line tears, it can cut into the hose lining. The exterior surface of these hoses is solid rubber, so there are no crevices for debris to enter.


Durable Fittings with Deep Threads

Kodiak Hose Flare

Kodiak brake hoses have corrosion-resistant brass fittings with stainless steel flares. These fittings have a gap built into them that allows room for a line wrench - also called a flare nut wrench - to slide over the line and down to the nut. This type of wrench grips the nut better than a standard open-ended wrench so there is less chance of stripping the threads as you tighten down the nut.


The stainless steel that is used to create the flares on these hoses is stronger than brass. As a result, these fittings are more durable than ones made entirely of brass. The stainless flares are primarily designed to keep the fittings from splitting when you tighten them down, but they offer absolute rust protection as well.


Kodiak's fittings have deeper threads than many other fittings on the market to provide a higher thread engagement. Deeper threads offer an advantage when used with fittings that have the same thread depth. These Kodiak fittings will work with most fittings on the market, but when they're used with other Kodiak fittings, the result is a stronger connection with fewer leaks.

Video Transcript for Kodiak Trailer Brakes 18TA-BLKIT Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Kodiak 18 Foot Tandem Axle Hydraulic Brake Line Kit. Now, these brake hoses and fittings will let you run brake fluid from your surge brake actuator to your trailer brakes. This kit here is designed for use on tandem axle trailers with drum or disc breaks. The flexible design on these hoses makes them perfect for use with fold-away trailer tongues, disc brakes, and torsion axles. The rubber hoses do meet the DOT, Department of Transportation, and SAE standards, and they're easier to install than the rigid steel lines. If you notice on the ends of these hoses they have the brass male swivel flare nut fittings on each end of the hose. They have nice deep threads on them.

What's nice is those deep threads will improve your connection to help prevent any leaks, and because they swivel, you can see they allow the flare fittings to turn without the hose twisting. Also you'll notice when you go they slide up against the flare when you install them, you have this open area right here on the fittings. This will let you use a brake line wrench for better grip, helps minimize the risk of stripping the threads. If you notice also the fittings on the ends, they are double crimped onto the rubber hoses. Now these fittings right here, they are corrosion resistant brass fittings. They connect your hydraulic lines, they do use female inverted flares at each port.

The looms right here, they're heavy duty loom clamps that'll secure the hoses to your trailer's frame. Now this kit here will include everything laid out on the table. We'll go through them. Here's the . It includes one 18 foot long flexible brake line. Two 7 foot long flexible brake lines.

One 3-1/2 foot long flexible brake line, and two 1-1/2 foot long flexible brake lines. One cross fitting. One T-fitting, and then 20 of the 1/2 inch heavy duty loom clamps. A few specs on these, the hoses, the inner diameter is 1/8 of an inch. The fitting size on each end is 3/16 of an inch, and the thread side is 3/8 of an inch by 24. That should do it for the review on the Kodiak 18 Foot Tandem Axle Hydraulic Brake Line Kit..

  • Parts Needed for Hydraulic Disc Brakes on 7,000 lbs Dexter Axle
  • For your dual axle trailer that has a Dexter axle with a weight capacity of 7,000 lbs and 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern, you have everything that you need correctly listed.

  • Recommended Parts For Adding Disc Brakes To Tandem Trailer With 6,000-lb Axles
  • We have all the parts you need but they do not alll come in one kit. I will make some recommendations that will work for your 6,000-lb axles. First, you can use the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, part # K2HR526D. This includes the hub and rotors for one axle. You will also need a bearing kit, part # BK3-100 for each wheel. Since the lug nuts, part # CE11051 are not included, you can purchase them separately. For a grease cap you can use part # F001520. For a 24-ft long brake line kit...

  • Recommended Tandem Axle Brake Line Kit For Trailer With 16 Foot Run to First Axle And 8 Foot Width
  • We do have a brake line kit that will meet your needs for a 16 foot run and 8 foot width runs. I recommend the Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Line Kit - Tandem Axle - 18', # 18TA-BLKIT. This is a flexible brake line kit, so the excess line can have slack or be coiled depending on your specific trailer needs. When you click on the link for this part, scoll down and you will see the diagram of how this kit is run with the fittings and lengths of line.

  • Tips for Bleeding Newly Installed Disc Trailer Brakes
  • I have actually linked a video that will help you with the process of bleeding disc trailer brakes. Go to about the 9:40 mark of the video. It is basically the same as bleeding drum brakes: make sure the actuator is full of fluid, move the actuator in and out to push fluid and any air back to the calipers, loosen the top-most bleeder screw until fluid comes out. Tighten the bleeder screw and go on to the next brake assembly. Another option is to get a clear jar and some hose to run...

  • Brake Line Kit Compatible With Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator And Disc Brakes
  • The HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes - 1,600 psi, # HBA16 is compatible with the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 13" Hub/Rotor - 8 on 6-1/2 - E-Coat - 7,000 lbs # K2HR79E. The Kodiak Hydraulic brake line kit for tandem axle you asked about # 18TA-BLKIT will absolutely work with these two components, but you may want a longer kit for your application. These kits will also work: HydraStar Hydraulic Brake Line Kit - Tandem Axle - 30' Long, 1/4" Main Line # HS496-252 Demco...

  • Parts Needed to Add Disc Brakes to Lippert 6k Axles
  • Since we know you have 6k Lippert axles I will be able to help you pick out exactly the disc brake kits that will fit. The Kodiak kit part # K2HR526D will fit your trailer axles and will work well. This is a Dacromet coated kit that will do a great job resisting rust. If your trailer has hydraulic drum brakes currently the brake lines you currently have will fit and work well with either kit. If not for a brake kit that is 18 feet in length we have the part # 18TA-BLKIT. I attached...

  • How Do Tandem Axle Hydraulic Brake Lines Typically Attach to Trailer Axles
  • I believe what you mentioned is a standard way of running trailer brake lines on a tandem trailer. I attached a diagram for the brake line kit part # 18TA-BLKIT and how it normally connects to a trailer. The main feed line runs to the first axle where a Tee splits it off to run to either assembly on the axle. These lines attach directly to the axle.

  • Recommended Hydraulic Brake Assemblies, Actuator, And Brake Lines For Dual Axle RV
  • For your conversion to hydraulic brakes on your 7,000 lb dual axle RV, I recommend the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Free Backing - 12" - Left/Right Hand Assemblies - 5.5K to 7K # AKFBBRK-7. These assemblies are side specific and are labeled for you. These will work with your current hub and drum assemblies. For installation and adjustment, you will want the Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630. If you need the mounting bolts for these assemblies, I recommend # BRKH12. If...

  • Brake Lines Compatible with Majic Tilt Trailer 22 Feet Long with Tandem Axle and Disc Brakes
  • The Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Hose - 3/16" Male Fittings w/ Stainless Flares # BH-3MFS-7 will fit on your trailer if the 7 foot length is what you need. You most likely will need the Kodiak Union Fitting # BH-C-3FIF for that application. If you are looking to change all your brake lines on your 22 foot tandem axle trailer with disc brakes, I recommend the Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Line Kit # 18TA-BLKIT. This will give you everything you need (lines, fittings, clamps, etc) to replace your...

  • If Trailer Has Breakaway Battery Installed Will it Work with Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Actuator
  • If your trailer already has a breakaway battery designed for electric brakes already you would not need to purchase an additional setup. You would need the disk brake kit like the part # K2HRCM1337-9DAC that you referenced, an actuator like our favorite Hydra Star # HBA16, and a brake line kit like # 18TA-BLKIT and you would be on your way. I attached a help article that covers adding EOH brakes to a trailer for you to check out as well.

  • Could Trailer Tandem Brake Line Kit be Used on Truck
  • Normally trailer brake lines are only used on trailers. However, if your vehicle has brake line fittings that match what the part # 18TA-BLKIT has and the psi of the system does not exceed 1,600 psi this line could work for you as these are SAE approved. The line has an inner diameter of 1/8 inch, the fitting size is 3/16 and the thread size is 3/8-24.

  • Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brake Actuator for Camping Trailer and Chevy Factory Brake Controller
  • The Tuson ActuLink Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes - 1,600 psi # 335ACT-1600 is not compatible with the Factory GM brake controller in your 2014 Chevy Silverado. My recommendation for you is to instead use an aftermarket brake controller like the Curt Echo # C51180 which will take priority over your factory controller and will work well. Another option is to use the HydraStar Vented Marine Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes - 1,600 psi # HS381-8067 which...

  • Will Kodiak Brake Line Kit part # 18TA-BLKIT Work with Hydrastar Actuator HBA-16
  • Yes, the brake line kit part # 18TA-BLKIT that you referenced would work great with the Hydrastar # HBA16 and Kodiak disc brake kit part # K2HR712E.

  • What Size Fittings Does Kodiak 225 Caliper Take
  • Sounds like you are trying to install the wrong brake line to the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225S that you mentioned. The fitting size needs to be 3/16 inch like what comes with the # 18TA-BLKIT. Since I don't know what brake lines you have now it's hard for me to verify that you have the right thing.
