Video Transcript for Titan Brake Actuator T1242600 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Titan replacement shock for the Titan model 6 and model 10 brake actuators. This part will allow you to replace a worn out or damaged sock on the Titan model 6 or model 10 brake actuators. The collapsed length, this is in the collapsed position, which is measured center to center, on this shock is going to be right at 6 inches. When you pull this out all the way, the extended length would measure 8 1/16. Now the inner diameter of the rings right here on the smaller one is 0.63 inches, from the larger one is 0.9 inches. The diameter of the outer body is 1.63 inches.

That should do it for the review on the Titan replacement shock for the Titan model 6 and model 10 brake actuators.

Just replaced this on a Titan SurgeOMatic 6 hydraulic actuator on a 1997 EZLoader trailer rated at 7000 lbs 24-25 foot boat. The shock has same dimensions buts looks to be generic import. Orginal shock was a Gabriel. Cannot comment on the quality until I use it a while.




by:

Helped with smooth out the hard starts and stops with the boat trailer.

We needed to replace the shocks to make our trailer breaks work. We went on line and found Etrailer.com. What a find. First - Carla is a great asset to the company. She knows her stuff and made it a pleasure to work with her. With Carla's help we found the parts we needed, ordered them and on schedule they arrived. The trailer is up and running again. Fyi - Yes we did some price checking and found the parts locally but the price was almost 3Xs as much. Etrailer.com is at the top of my list for any future parts I might need for my company. Thank You Etrailer.com

Fit right into place. Buy an adapter for it to get from the 1/4" pipe thread at the rear of the master cylinder to the flare fitting of your brake line! Mine is 3/16 flare . The adapter from the old master c was different. Used a crescent wrench on the breakaway lever to bleed.




by:

Easy to install on my factory trailer for my 2004 Four Winns Horizon 230. Greatly reduced the "pull-away thump".

Note: a short length of 3/4" copper water pipe was really helpful for holding the shock and the two "rollers" in alignment while positioning the shock and installing the pin that holds the big end to the trailer.




by:

Exact replacement parts for trailer with hydraulic brakes.
I have been rebuilding the complete brake system and springs on a 31ft long dual axle boat trailer. I have made multiple orders with etrailer and all of the parts have been exact fit. This has been the easiest rebuild I have ever done.




by:

everything was as I expected,




by:

Was redoing brake system on trailer. Ordered this replacement shock. Came in timely manner-- perfect fit. So far 1 year later still working great.




by:

Had been having difficult time finding the drum brake shock until I found your site. Not sure they are new or not or have been sitting on shelf a long time because of appearance. Perhaps drum brakes are now a dying breed. But the shocks are what I need to get back on the road.




by:

better than original, thanks for speedy service
I am rebuilding a special built trailer made in 1973 for a Sea Camper Boat Will try to send picture of boat and trailer when restoration is complete. Just received tandem brake line kit




by:

Part was lost in mail box and they sent new part asap. Excellent customer service.




by:

This shock was for m1102 military trailer and I thought it would be next to impossible to find but e trailer had in in stock and delivered in a few days.




by:

etrailer.com had the hard to find part that I was looking for in stock.




by:

Titan 10 hitch actuator, perfect! Came a day earlier than scheduled, installed without a hitch! No pun intended!! Great product, fit perfectly. Will do business agin and agin and again....




by:

Direct replacement for my model 6 surge activator. Part was easily installed and was a perfect fit.




by:

The shock fit properly and performs part of the braking function as specified.




by:

The product pictured matched my old unit exactly. Received item in a reasonable time. Was able to install the new unit with no problems. I need to complete reworking the rest of the brake system before I can test but so far everything looks great.




by:

Thanks George your service was very good , I got the right part and prompt delivery, I'll call you first next time I need parts for my trailer
Once again Thank You for the excellent service.




by:

Exact replacement for my 1970's U-haul surge brake system on my trailer.




by:

nice to be able to completely rebuild my brake system part is very well made and fit like they should would use again




by:

Good all the way around. Good communication, good tracking information, delivered on time. Product was as ordered.




by:

This is a good company. I have already installed the shocks and they fit perfectly. I have dealt with you before and will do so again. Keep up the good work. Thanks again for shipping promptly.

  • What is the Retracted and Extended Length on Replacement Trailer Actuator Shock # T1242600
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled replacement shock # T1242600 to confirm the measurements and where they are taken. The measurements are from eye center to eye center. So when compressed you will have a center to center length of 6 inches and when extended it is 8-1/16 inches. I have included a picture showing the measurements for you.

  • Should Shock Absorber # T1242600 in Titan Actuator Retract
    The shock in a surge coupler actuator like a Titan Model 6 should be extended (to its longest state) when it is at rest (when not under braking load). The shock will be compressed when you apply the brakes by the momentum of the trailer pushing forward on the coupler. The spring action of the shock is intended to return the coupler to its uncompressed state (extended to maximum length). The part you referenced, # T1242600, has just over 2-inches of travel between its compressed (retracted)...

  • Diagram for Replacing Titan Model 10 Actuator Shocks
    To replace the shock in your Titan model 10 actuator you are going to basically need to disassemble the actuator so that you have access to the shocks. Instead of describing to you how it comes apart I thought it would be more helpful if you had an exploded diagram of a model 10 actuator so that you can see how the # T124600 would install.

  • How to Determine if the Titan Replacement Shock would fit Surge Brake Actuator
    The shock part # T1242600 could potentially work for you if the mounting ring dimensions match up to what you have. This shock has 0.63 and 0.90 inch diameter mounting rings.

  • Titan 10 Actuator Replacement Shock Procedure
    I attached the exploded parts diagram for the Titan Model 10 actuators. To access the shock you will need to remove the brake master cylinder so that you can access everything from the rear of the actuator. You will basically just need to access everything from the rear of the actuator and remove things from the rear of the actuator so that you can access things up front and then repeat the process as you move forward.

  • How Are Roller Bearing Installed When Replacing Shock For Titan 6 Or 10 Brake Actuators
    On the Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators, part # T1242600, the roller bearings are installed on each side of the shock eyelet or end. I have attached the parts list and a diagram with a red arrow that shows how the bearings are installed. As you can see in the diagram, they are placed on each side of the shock eyelet.

  • Replacement Shock for Surge Coupler on Zieman Boat Trailer
    If your trailer surge coupler uses a lockout key to allow reversing then it is operating normally. Some Titan brand couplers use this type of key-operated manual lockout. Inserting the key is required for these couplers even on level ground. If not, then it is possible that the shock inside your surge actuator may be malfunctioning. The shock serves to return the surge coupler to its extended "brakes off" position unless there is plenty of force on it from your reversing the tow vehicle....

  • How the Shock Absorber Works on a Surge Brake Actuator
    The Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators part # T1242600 only works one way. When the brakes are applied it eases the movement of the trailer forward onto the brake actuator. There is no return spring, the tow vehicle would then pull the actuator to reload the shock. For example, if the trailer was unhooked from the tow vehicle and you were able to depress the actuator, it would not extend back until manually pulled back out.

  • How to Replace the Shock on a Titan Model 10 Surge Brake Actuator
    We have not yet replaced the Shock part # T1242600 on a Titan Model 10 Surge Brake Actuator so I do not have any specifics for you but I have attached a parts diagram which shows you how the unit is broken down. You can then use this to get a better idea of what all is needed to replace the shock. I spoke to the manufacturer and they do not have any sort of write-up for this process either so it appears that the only option would be to just begin disassembly and see what parts need to be...

  • 1993 Trail-Rite Trailer Actuating Coupler Replacement Shock Absorber Needed
    For your 1993 Trail-Rite trailer, I'm not quite sure what you mean for shock absorber in the tongue. I'm making and assumption that you have a brake actuating coupler and need a replacement shock for it like # T1242600. Because I don't know what coupler you have, I am linking the page to all of your options. You may need to take some measurements or even contact the manufacturer to get the information needed if the name brand and model is not on the coupler itself.

  • Testing Shock On Titan Model 10 Actuator To Determine If Replacement Is Needed
    To test your shock, you can extend and retract it manually but it will take some force as there should be resistance. It should measure 6 inches from center to center when retracted and 8-1/16 inches when extended. If it is not working properly either because there isn't resistance or it is seized up, then I recommend replacing it with the Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators # T1242600.

  • 2010 Reliable Trailer Shock Damper Replacement
    One of our replacement shocks might work for your Reliable actuator but we do not carry that particular brand so you would have to go by the measurements. Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators # T1242600 measures 6 inches retracted and 8-1/16 inches extended. I believe this would be your best option.

  • Replacement for Gabriel Shock Model 610712
    To determine if the Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators, part # T1242600 will work to replace your Gabriel number 610712 (T2032) shock, you will need to verify a few quick measurements. Part # T1242600 will work as a replacement for a shock with the following dimensions: Extended length: 8-1/16" Collapsed length: 6" Inner diameter of mounting rings: 0.63" and 0.90" Outer diameter of body: 1.63" I've a dimensional diagram to illustrate.

  • Solution to Allow Titan Surge Brake Actuator to Back Up without Locking Up Brakes
    Surge brakes will lock up when in reverse if the trailer does not have a reverse lock out or free-backing assemblies installed. To fix that you would want the reverse lock out solenoid part # T4748800. This blocks the actuator from building hydraulic pressure when in reverse so that you can back up. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out as well. The one assembly being hot could be a matter of that assembly just being out of adjustment. Use the star wheel on...

  • Does Titan Replacement Shock for Model 60 Actuator Come with New Roller Bearings
    The roller bearings part # T0829100 do not come with the replacement shock part # T1242600 for your Model 60 Titan actuator. If yours are still good I wouldn't replace them, but for the price it's hard to pass up.

  • Solution for Titan Model 6 Trailer Surge Actuator that Sticks
    The springs shouldn't need any adjustment and they should feel pretty tight by hand. Did you replace the shock? That's typically what causes the brakes to stick like you mentioned. For a replacement shock for the Model 6 like what the master cylinder you referenced fits you'd want the part # T1242600.

  • How To Replace Shocks In Titan Model 10
    I believe that you have a Titan Model 10 actuator based off of the diagram that you are referring to which I have attached below. I contacted Dexter (they now own the Titan products) and the replacement shock part # T1242600 is not attached to the master cylinder part # T2374600 of the model 10 at all. They are attached to the side of the front sliding mechanism with bolts pictured in the diagram as number 31. The shocks (number 29) bolt to the ovals in the side of the sliding mechanism.

  • Solution for Banging During Starts and Stops with Titan Model 6 Actuator on Trailer
    It's a bit hard to tell based on the picture but it does look like you might have an older Titan Model 6 Brake Actuator like our 8K # T4079200. If this is the case then you can use the Replacement Shock # T1242600 to resolve the issues you're having. The banging that you described is absolutely a common symptom of a bad shock component, so this should be all that you need. I have attached a short video review below that you can check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer wish Surge Brakes that Slams When Stopping and Starting
    Sounds like you have a bad shock in the surge actuator of your trailer based on what you described. The actuator part # T1607500 is a Model 10 and if this is what you have then the correct shock replacement is the # T1242600.

  • Solution for Rough Activating Model 10 Surge Brake Actuator
    I wish there was a way to adjust the braking application of a surge brake actuator but that's not possible. Is it possible yours has a bad shock? How old is it? A lot of times a bad shock is the real reason a surge brake setup activates roughly. If you had a Model 10 actuator like the one you referenced the correct shock would be part # T1242600.

  • Solution for Jerking Brake Application of Titan Model 6 Actuator
    What you described sounds like a bad shock in the Titan model 6 actuator you have. For a replacement you would want the part # T1242600 which is a confirmed fit. Actuators shocks are designed to slow the movement of the actuator so that you don't experience the jerking that you described. When they go back they allow the actuator to move too quickly which causes what you described.

  • Replacement Shock for Titan Model 10 Actuator to Fix Banging When Starting and Stopping
    If you are getting consistent banging when you are starting and stopping, it sounds like what you need is a new shock for your actuator. If you have the Model 10 Titan Brake Actuator # T4749600 you referenced, the replacement shock you need is the Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators # T1242600. I've added a link to a video review for you to check out as well.
