Flexible Rubber Brake Hose

This Kodiak brake hose is made of rubber, making it a practical choice for a variety of applications. Because you can easily bend it, a rubber hose is simpler to work with than a rigid stainless steel brake line. This flexibility makes a rubber hose great for use with foldaway trailer tongues because it is 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 this hose 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 this hose 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 Hydraulic Brake Hose Review

Hi there, trailer owners. Today we're going to be taking a look at Kodiak's Flexible Hydraulic Brake Hoses with 3/16 Brake Line Fittings. These are available in either 1' up to 24' in varying sizes.These flexible brake hoses are going to be a great replacement or upgrade for your trailer's existing brake lines or brake hoses. I personally find that installing flexible lines is quite a bit easier than bending and molding new brake lines. So if you have the option to do this, you will appreciate how much easier it is, and I like that they're great for either drum brakes or disc brake systems. We're currently using ours with a brake actuator that has a maximum pressure of 1600 psi and these lines can handle that with no problem.

We're able to handle the extremely high pressures due to our rubberized hoses that meet both DOT and SAE standards and the brass fittings that have double ferrule crimp on the ends. This will ensure a more durable, stronger connection with two points of contact to also ensure that there's no seepage or leakage.I like that they added a small piece of brake line coming out of here. This gap here makes it easy to get your line wrench on there. It fits right over the small line to get onto your nut so you can make sure you get those tightened down properly. You always want to use line wrenches when working with brake hoses or brake lines because the fittings on the end here are made of brass, which is a softer metal than your typical bolts are that you're used to working with.

If you need to set a line wrenches, you can grab a set here at etrailer.com as well. Now that we've covered some of the features, let's go over the installation together so you can get these installed on your trailer.Well, here you can see our predicament. As we we're trying to bleed the brakes, but we noticed we had a brake leak, and our leak was coming from the flex hose that we had that came from our T fitting here to our front axle on our trailer. So I went ahead to go replace the line, and of course the T fitting here broke off inside the line. So we're going to attempt to remove these lines, but based on how this worked out, I'm pretty sure we're going to have to replace all of these lines.

We'll also need to replace our T fitting. Since we're upgrading to flexible lines, we're going to be using a T fitting that has all female ends on it. This is pretty much just going to go right here, but this line and this line are now going to be flexible.It's pretty straight forward on how it would work. You simply unscrew this line and then thread in your new line. But when you get in a situation like this where they're all rusted up, you are likely going to break a line.

You can soak it in some penetrating oil and then slowly try it over time. Sometimes you can get it free without busting it loose, and other times you just have to replace it. We're kind of at the point where we need to replace ours due to corrosion. So this line is essentially going to go here. Our lines are going to thread into our T, and they are just going to route where our old lines used to be. I'm going to go ahead and bust these lines off here now, and then we'll show you what it looks like when we've got the new ones on.This is what our replacement is going to look like. We've replaced the T-fitting here and we've hooked our flexible lines into it. We're using various length flexible lines to achieve this. We have our 7' coming out the side of the T here, going back to our rear axle. We've used a 1-1/2' to go to the brake hose for our front axle here and then a 15' flexible that goes all the way out to the brake actuator at the front of the trailer. They attach using the brass nuts at the end. The ends of our flexible brake hoses are already pre-flared for you. So you simply thread it into your T fitting, your brake caliper, your brake actuator, wherever you need to thread it into as long as it accepts fittings for a 3/16 brake line.Once you've completed replacing your lines, all that's left now is to bleed the brakes. Top up your brake fluid, you'll pressurize it, and then an assistant can open the bleeder valve at the caliper to let the fluid out and get all the air out of the system. You just simply rinse and repeat at each brake caliper, starting from the furthest one away, and then going to the closest towards your master cylinder. That completes our look at Kodiak's Flexible Hydraulic Brake Hoses.

This has been a great product. I used it on a boat trailer after installing a swing tongue, it was easy to install and has worked well. Product is very durable and has stood up well after one year of use. In fact it still looks like new. i am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this product. 718254

My drum brakes locked up on me because it is a boat trailer and gets submerged in water. I hate drum brakes, due how many part are inside and can rust up. I am the 3rd owner of my 1998 boat trailer and it was hard to figure out what I needed to fix it. I contacted etrailer and they were super helpful, super informative and super easy to work with. I told them what I had, and what I wanted to do., and they put a package together for me and that was them. Everything was super east to install because it is all bolt on. I did have to do some cutting and grinding on my old tongue because the master was welded on. That was the only difficult part. My new setup is amazing and the disk brakes and new master make it feel like my boat is not even there. All in all, I am 110% satisfied and will definitely be a returning customer for any trailer needs. Thank you etrailer for making everything super easy. 635086

Ask the Experts about this Kodiak Accessories and Parts

  • Trouble Preventing Brass Brake Line Fittings From Leaking On a Trailer
    The majority of our brake line fittings are made from brass which are a bit different than the steel brake line fittings you might be familiar with on a passenger vehicle. Generally speaking, the cause of these brass brake line fittings leaking is usually related to over-tightening as they are just not designed to be torqued to the same specification as the steel brake line fittings. I recommend you start by tightening the fittings by hand tight, then around 2-3 full rotations with a wrench....

  • 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...

  • Could Kodiak Disc Brake Line Kit # BH-3MFS-7 Work in Automobile Application
    If you can verify that the psi rating of your brake system is less than 1,600 psi (it should be) then the trailer brake line kit part # BH-3MFS-7 would work fine. Fitting size: 3/16" Thread size: 3/8"-24

  • Brake Lines for a 1999 Baybreeze/Seabreeze RV
    We do have brake lines you can use with your RV. Brake lines are not vehicle specific though so you can use any lines provided they are long enough and have the proper fittings on them. I have included a link to our selection of brake lines. If you can tell me how long your RV is I can make a more specific recommendation. If your RV has drum brakes then you can use all metal lines. If it has disc brakes you will want a combination of metal lines (from the master cylinder back to the...

  • Replacement Brake Line/Hose for Dexter 8K Disc Brake Axle
    There are several brake lines in varying lengths and sizes between your disc brake assembly and the surge brake coupler on your trailer. I am not sure which one you are looking for but if you can pinpoint this for me I may have some better advice for you. In the meantime, I have attached for you a photo that shows what brake lines go to and from a disc brake assembly and surge brake coupler on a tandem axle trailer.

  • Shorter Brake Line Recommendation than Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Hose BH-3MFS-20
    We have the 7 foot section part # BH-3MFS-7 which is the shorter version of the # BH-3MFS-20 that you referenced. Or for just slightly shorter we have the 18 foot long section part # BH-3MFS-18.

  • Replacement Brake Lines for 2016 Tracker Boat Trailer
    We carry brake lines in various sizes and materials that you can see on the page I linked for you. These include both steel lines and flexible lines and both complete brake line kits like # DM5429 as well as individual lines. For a 7-foot flexible line with 3/16-inch male fittings you can use Kodiak # BH-3MFS-7 or for a shorter 4-1/2-footer part # BH-3MFS-4-5. For a 10-foot steel line you can use # T1074500. It is perfectly okay to replace a steel line with a flexible line. All...

    We do have replacement Kodiak Disc Brake Calipers for the 12" Rotors rated for 5,200-lb - 6,000-lb axles from Kodiak available for you. Part # KDBC225DAC has a Dacromet finish and part # KDBC225S has a Stainless Steel finish - you will simply need to choose the one that corresponds to what you already have on your trailer. For a replacement 7' Hose you can use part # BH-3MFS-7 from Kodiak which has the 3/16" Male Fittings w/ Stainless Flares already installed for you.

  • Solution for Needing 87 inches of Trailer Brake Line
    The best option would be our 10 foot long section part # T1074500 most likely. It's a steel cable so you would need to coil the excess. Of if you can get away with 84 inches we have the part # bh-3mfs-7. We don't have exactly 87 inches.
