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.


Electric Reverse Lockout

The electric reverse lockout on this trailer brake actuator is automatically activated when you shift your tow vehicle into reverse. The solenoid wires into your trailer connector - which connects to your tow vehicle - so that it can detect when you are in reverse. When your vehicle is in reverse, the solenoid ensures that the hydraulic actuator does not activate your trailer's brakes, thus allowing you to back up your rig. To use the lockout feature, you must have a 5-pole flat, 6-way round, or 7-pole trailer connector.

Great product, fast shipping. E trailer has everything you need. Thanks

Works great- no issues

Finished drum to disc brake conversion on my 1993 year model Bass Cat trailer. Installation went smoothly and the UFP-A60 Actuator replaced the obsolete Atwood Actuator. Shortened the outer member a bit and added a 1" flat bar to the bottom for welding of 4" channel trailer frame.



by:

Updating my old surge brake coupler, I really like this Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K fits 3”x4”trailer tongue, it was easy to install, I did have to drill new holes, I just wish the manufacturer would have included the bolts and the information on how much to torque the bolts to, it’s about “2 drop from my old coupler. etrailer was super fast with shipping !



by:

Exactly what I needed. Didn't require the outer housing, the insider mechanism slid in nicely as a replacement on my trailer. The etrailer videos for installation and bleeding were very helpful.



by:

Fit was seemless to replace an old actuator with the impossible do get landed hitch latch. Changed brakes from drum to disk, and all new lines. What a difference in smoothness (and effectiveness) while braking. Electric lockout in reverse is also a nice feature. Just plusses all around. If you are replacing the same components be very patient with the bleeding process...it will take some time and a lot of pumping.



by:

Just what I wanted. I am building a custom trailer for my vintage boat. I have used these actuators in past projects. etrailer has great pricing and fast delivery every time.



by:

Delivery was very fast. Quality seems very good. Installation was super easy since my Shorelander swing tongue trailer has this standard hole pattern. I love how it looks and the extra foot of distance I get between the boat and my tow vehicle (so less chance of needing to get my feet wet or crawl through the SUV).



by:

Have not use the Actuator yet. However it came in a oversize box. No packing material to protect it. It was damaged when I opened the box. Scratches and damage cable



by:

Product arrived quickly (as always, thanks etrailer!) bolted direct to my shorelandr trailer without issue. it did not come with the reservoir cover or the manual lockout which was expected given it was a full tongue assembly. Also did not come with the manual (and specifically the spare breakaway clips in case the emergency cord is pulled). Save old lockout and reservoir cap if replacing a busted tongue!



by:

I have not got it on the trailer yet can't wait to use it it looks awesome hope it works as good as it looks



by:

I’m very satisfied. I always check out etrailer for all my trailer needs and this time was no different. In under 2 hours by myself I changed out the old with the new ( pictures) and ready to bleed the brakes. I always let people know to contact etrailer with there needs. Thanks



by:

Ordered brake actuator from Etrailer after several attempts from EZTrailee with no response. Wished I had checked out Etrailer sooner. Received notification at each billing, shipping.
It was easy to find the parts got fast shipping with working brakes now, can enjoy the boat again. This is the third trailer you helped me repair with correct parts, fast shipping
Many thanks guys



by:

The product is as expected and an exact replacement for my trailer. The exceptional part of the transaction was the speed my order was filled and shipped.



by:

Amazing price for my favorite hitch, tongue actuator system made. I own 6 trailers and have had another dozen in the past. There is no better looking or functioning system .



by:

Fantastic product selection excellent customer service



by:

Perfect fit. I had to notch one corner where my wiring came out of the box tubing. Really nice compared to the original that was on there



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.



by:

Great replacement for a damaged actuator. A plan came together and it don't get much better.



by:

Very sturdy material and well made. Works as designed and the electrical lock out for disc brakes is very useful.

Manual lock out lever key could be magnetized to avoid falling off.



by:

This was an easy replacement and has worked very well



by:

It is a very quality product and exactly what I needed to repair the brakes on my Shorelander trailer. Easy to install and functions great.



by:

I thought the product was good quality would have been nice if it came with some instructions.

  • Will the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Weld On Fit a 3" x 4" Trailer Tongue
    The customer review you are referencing is for a similar DX7.5L actuator. We put those reviews there when there is not enough reviews for the particular item to give you a good understanding of the reception. That being said, I called Dexter to confirm that this particular actuator, part # DX63FR, will fit your 3" x 4" tongue, and they assured me that it will. This is the actuator that you need. I've linked to a video review of this actuator for you to look at.

  • Can I Weld on a Bolt on Brake Actuator?
    Yes, you can weld on the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K item # DX56FR you referenced. You will want to make sure you remove the zinc coating and get down to the bare metal. I have attached a couple of diagrams I made with the dimensions on both actuators.

  • Difference Between Dexter DX7.5L A-60 & A-60XL Disc Brake Actuator
    Good question, and there is just one difference between the Dexter disc brake actuators you asked about, which is the overall length: - 17-1/2" Overall length: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX63FR - 19" Overall length: Dexter DX7.5L A-60XL Brake Actuator # DX43FR Apart from that, these are the exact same disc brake actuator, with both having an electric lockout, coupling to a 2" hitch ball, and 7,500 lb weight capacity.

  • Inner Member Replacement for Dexter UFP A-60 Brake Actuator
    If you already have the housing welded on, you do not need the # DX63FR Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout. What you are looking for is the inner member. The # DX39FR Replacement Inner Member for Dexter DX7.5L Actuator - Single Axle w/ Disc - 2" Ball is what you need. This is the replacement inner member for Dexter DX7.5L and Legacy UFP Brake Actuators like your UFP A-60. I have attached a review video for your reference.

  • How Are The Pins Removed On The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX63FR For Replacing Parts?
    The pins on the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX63FR are removed by releasing the snap rings and washers from one side of the actuator. You will then be able to press out the pins. Do note depending on the age of your actuator and the amount of corrosion you may need some penetrating oil to help break the pins free from the sleeves inside the actuator. If the pin will still not release you can lightly tap on the end of the pin but be sure to be careful to not damage the retaining...

  • Replacement Surge Brake Actuator To Replace TDE LP7000 On a 2007 Four Winns Boat Trailer
    Your TDE model LP7000 surge brake actuator will need to be entirely replaced as the master cylinder is no longer available for it. With this unique style coupler you will need either a Disc # DX63FR or Drum # DX53FR brake actuator which will need to be welded on. This will replace your entire actuator assembly and a portion of your trailers tongue.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator To Replace Old Atwood Surge Brake Actuator For Drum Brakes
    To replace your old Atwood surge brake actuator I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator - Weld On - Drum - 2" Ball - Primed - 7,500 lbs # DEX94FR which will still work with your 2" hitch ball and drum brakes. You will have no problem removing your current actuator and welding the # DEX94FR in its place. The # DEX94FR does have a manual reverse lockout but you will need to purchase the lockout key # DX94FR. I included a video of the # DEX94FR for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator For Discontinued Atwood 85739
    You are correct that the Atwood 85739 has been discontinued along with all of the replacement parts for it. I recommend replacing it with the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Weld On - Disc - 2" Ball - Primed - 7.5K # DX63FR if you have disc brakes or # DX53FR if you have drum brakes. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator For Tandem Axle Boat Trailer With Disc Brakes
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 # DX63FR is would work perfectly for your boat trailer with tandem axles and disc brakes as long as your trailer frame is 3" x 3" or 3" x 4" and you are ok with welding it on. This actuator has a 7500lb weight capacity, so make sure your boat and trailer do not exceed that. Another option is the Dexter DX7.5 Drop-N-Go # 099-175-20 which has the same 7500lb weight capacity and is designed for hydraulic disc brakes, but has a zinc finish for superior corrosion resistance...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Trailer to Surge Disc with Welded on Atwood Actuator and 3,500 lb Axles
    Since your current Atwood surge drum actuator is welded to your trailer frame what you'll need to do is take the trailer to a welder who can cut the welds and remove what you have now and in place install a weld on coupler designed for disc brakes like the part # DX63FR. Since the diameter of your brake drum is 10 inch that means you have a 3,500 lb trailer axle so for a disc brake kit to replace that you'd just need the # K2R35DKG.

  • Stainless Steel Disc Brake Kit Solution for 3,500 lb Axle of Single Axle Boat Trailer
    For a surge coupler replacement that would work well on your Rocket 1835 trailer the Dexter part # DX63FR would be a really great option. Then for a stainless slip-on disc brake kit the part # K2R35S would be a great option as well. The only thing else you'd need is a disc brake kit like the part # 18SI-BLKIT which is a flexible hose line kit so it's easier to install.
