Dimensions between mounting holes

When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while the tow vehicle slows. The actuator telescopes, applying force to its master cylinder, which in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage the trailer's brakes.

My package arrived a day early.
Installed
new actuator on my boat trailer in about 5 minutes bleed the system and brakes and it works like a charm.




by:

I slipped this into my boat mate trailer for 2001 moomba. Took about an hour to hook up and bleed the system with a buddy. Works great! If you can use simple tools and are mechanically savvy this is a no brainer.

The product worked well and etrailer had excellent customer service

I was really in need of this for my boat that I'm towing to Florida for the winner and it was delivered in two days, thank you very much!




by:

Great product. Easy installation and exact fit. Product description on the website made it easy to find the correct replacement for the old part.




by:

I received my order two days ago, Quick shipping but it was the wrong part. I called and spoke with Noah who sent me an email asking me to take a picture of the part and add my phone number. I did right a way and still have not heard back. I emailed Noah today asking about the status no reply, now Im on a 9min hold to try and talk with someone about my replacement past. The wrong part looks like a good part if it fit my trailer.


Comments
Mark, Im sorry Noah didnt reply to you in a timely manner. We will get this taken care of and send out the correct part.

Ordered on Wednesday and had it on Friday! The price was the lowest anywhere and free shipping this fast, how can you beat that?

There were a lot of different options to choose from and they were extremely helpful in helping me order the right part.




by:

Everything went well during installation. Product was of good quantity.




by:

This was the exact match from for my 2008 tandem axel boat trailer. Excellent product description and information on etrailer web page.




by:

The product you sent me had the correct internal parts that I needed although the mount was not correct I used my mount that came with the trailer.




by:

Shipped on time and arrived on time, which is great in todays world. Everything looks to be correct. I have not had a chance to install yet, so I will have to update after installation.




by:

everything perfect.




by:

Worked great




by:

The product is exactly what I ordered and it was shipped quickly. Only problem is it is missing the upper cap to cover the brake fluid reservoir. I did call Customer Service and they said they would send one ASAP. The photo online shows it is included with the product. I’m waiting on receiving it.

  • Best Replacement for Titan Aero 7500 Brake Actuator for Disc Brakes
    The best replacement option we have for a Titan Aero 7500 Brake Actuator is the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator part # DX29FR. The frame size, hitch ball size, and weight capacity will all be the same. The only difference will be switching from a manual to electric lockout and the mounting pattern will be different so you will have to drill new holes but that's it. I don't have any good replacement options that will use the existing holes on the tongue unfortunately because this is an...

  • Where Do Wires For Reverse Lockout Solenoid On Dexter DX7.5L DX29FR Get Connected?
    The two wires on the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K # DX29FR you purchased are for the reverse lockout solenoid. It does not matter which wire gets connected to what, but one wire will get grounded to the frame and the other wire gets connected to the trailer connector. I included a video of the # DX29FR for you to take a look at.

  • Troubleshooting Reverse Lockout Solenoid Not Working on Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator
    There are only 3 real possibilities for your lockout failing to work properly on the # DX29FR. The first would be the power. Since it sounds like you are getting 12V power to the solenoid it doesn't sound like this is the issue. The second would be the ground. Make sure your ground connection is secure on a clean, bare-metal surface. Also, the wires are interchangeable so it doesn't matter which is the power and which is the ground. If these both check out it is likely a bad solenoid valve....

  • Replacement Disc Brake Actuator For 2" Ball & 3" x 4" Tongue
    Appreciate that info, and there is an option for a disc brake actuator that will work for your 3" x 4" tongue and connects to a 2" hitch ball: - Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w/ Electric Lockout # DX29FR The # DX29FR is designed to bolt onto a 3" x 4" trailer tongue, has a 7,500 lb capacity, and has a zinc finish for corrosion resistance so it's perfect for a boat trailer.

  • What Size and Grade Mounting Hardware for the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout part # DX29FR for disc brakes and part # DX27FR for drum brakes use 1/2" diameter mounting hardware. We have used both grade 5 and grade 8 bolts when doing installations of them but the grade 5 are sufficient. There is very little force actually applied to the bolts other than side pull.

  • Replacement Disc Brake Actuator for A60 with Electric Lockout
    We do have replacement hydraulic actuators for your UFP A60 boat trailer actuator: If the actuator mounts on top of the trailer frame use part # DX89FR, but if it mounts inside of the trailer frame use part # DX29FR instead. These disc brake actuators are bolt-on installations that are compatible with a 2" hitch ball and the electric lockout feature.

  • What is Difference Between Dexter Couplers # DX29FR and # DX56FR
    The difference is the trailer tongue size the coupler was designed to fit. The part # DX29FR is designed to fit a 3 inch by 4 inch straight tongue whereas the part # DX56FR is designed to fit a 3 inch by 5 inch straight tongue. Aside from that they are both 7,500 lb trailer coupler actuators with a 7,500 lb capacity designed for 2 inch hitch balls.

  • Replacement Surge Actuator for Reliable ACT 7.5K Actuator
    Best solution we have would be the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc # DX29FR which will fit over the 3 inch by 5 inch frame channel you have. This is a very similar design to what you have now and has the same weight capacity so it would work well. This is the disc brake version so if you have drum brakes instead you'd want the part # DX27FR.

  • Replacement For TDE LP75 Disc Brake Actuator
    We can get you a replacement for your TDE LP75 disc brake actuator; that's a 7,500 lb actuator that accepts a 2" hitch ball, and the correct option will depend on if your trailer tongue is 3" wide x 4" tall or 3" wide x 5" tall: - 3" x 4": Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX29FR - 3" x 5": Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX56FR As for your second question, both do have the electric lockout, as there isn't an option for the old school type you were referencing.

  • Difference Between Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuators For Disc Brakes
    That's a really good question, and there is a difference between the 7,500 lb Dexter DX7.5L A-60 actuators for disc brakes; the differences are both in what they fit, as well as their length. - 14" Long & Top-Mounted For 3" Wide Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX89FR - 19" Long & Bolts To 3" x 4" Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX29FR - 19" Long & Bolts To 3" x 5" Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX56FR Apart from that, these...

  • Surge Brake Actuator For Disc Brakes With a 2" Ball Coupler And Manual Lockout
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX56FR has a 2" ball coupler and is compatible with disc trailer brakes. While this actuator does come with an electric lockout that ties to the reverse light circuit to prevent pressure from getting to the brake calipers, you can also use it manually. The Lockout Key # DX94FR can be placed in the actuator groove to prevent it from being able to cycle when you need to lockout the actuator. This particular actuator is designed to bolt to a 3"x5" trailer...

  • Replacement Surge Brake Actuator For Trailer W/ Older Swing Away Actuator For Disc Brakes
    Thank you for the pictures! For a replacement option I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K # DX29FR to replace your current actuator. The # DX29FR has a 7500lb trailer weight rating, is designed for trailers with disc brakes, and is a bolt on replacement. You will likely also need a replacement swing away tongue adapter like the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit for 3" x 4" Tongue # FHDPB340301 which fits 3" x 4"...

    For a replacement option I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K # DX29FR. The swing-away actuator you are referencing was discontinued and there is no direct replacement. The # DX29FR has a 7,500 lb trailer capacity, is designed for trailers with disc brakes, and is a bolt on replacement.

  • Disc Brake Actuator Recommendation to Replace Atwood Drum Actuator
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX29FR is a bolt on disc brake actuator designed to fit 3 inch wide frame channel like what your trailer has. It would be a really great option that would last longer and perform better than your Atwood.

  • Replacement Actuator for Atwood Surge Brake Actuator that Needs to be Rebuilt
    Atwood got out of the actuator business a few years ago and all of their replacement parts are no longer made so it would be time for a new actuator like the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DEX94FR which is for drum brakes or part # DX29FR for disc.

  • Replacement Solution for UFP A-60 Breakaway Key and Cable
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator part # DX89FR for disc or part # DX33FR for drum will work to replace both a UFP A-60 or A-75 Brake Actuator since we don't carry the UFP replacement breakaway setup. The A-60 is rated for 6K and the A-75 is rated for 7.5K. The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator is rated for 7.5K. Now if you needed just the key we can help with that with part # DX94FR and then for just a cable part # FA80-01-2160.

  • Replacement Fold Away Surge Brake Coupler for Disc Brake Trailer
    I do have a recommendation as Titan no longer makes their brake actuator with the fold away tongue hinge you are looking for. You will be able to use either a 3"x4" Hinge # FHDPB340301 with the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX29FR. Or we have the 3"x5" Hinge # FHDPB350101 with the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX56FR. You will need to acquire a short leg of either the 3"x4" or 3"x5" tubing for connecting the hinge kit to the actuator.
