  • 7500 lbs GTW
  • Bolt-On
  • Electric Lockout
  • Straight Tongue Coupler
  • Dexter

Use this corrosion-resistant actuator to synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow-vehicle brakes. Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on 2" hitch ball. Designed for hydraulic disc brake applications.


Features:

  • Hydraulic actuator activates trailer's brakes when tow vehicle slows or stops
  • Electric reverse lockout lets you back up without actuating trailer brakes
    • Solenoid activates automatically when you shift into reverse
  • Low-profile coupler latch ensures easy, secure connection
    • Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on hitch ball
  • Aluminum master cylinder is better at reducing corrosion than cast steel master cylinders
  • Zinc plating offers excellent corrosion resistance
  • Bolt-on installation
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: hydraulic disc brakes
  • Ball size: 2"
  • Mounting holes positioned 3/4" down
  • Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • 2-Year limited warranty


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.

The product came unboxed, missing instructions and no spare break away clips. I purchased a new actuator and got one that was laying around.




by:

The manual lockout device, supplied with the actuator, requires a second person to hold it in place when backing. It will not stay in place on its own.




by:

good customer service, thank you




by:

Customer service was very helpful. Speedy shipping.

This product doesn’t fit over 3” tongue. Its the exact same size as a 3” tongue.Unusable. Had to remove the internal portion and modify my trailer tongue to fit. Arrived as the worst packaged item I’ve ever received. It was barely still in the box. Whom ever packaged this didn’t have a clue what they were doing.

Arrived early and fit great on my trail er.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


This is a very well made Brake Actuator, with high quality and heavy duty materials. Flat top design suits my requirements of opening the tail gate without worrying about damaging the tailgate and for fixing the sticker for Ford Pro-Trailer Back up Assist. Overall, I am pretty happy with the product, pricing and prompt shipping.

However, I have two observations to make:
1. Manual lockout plate could have been tethered to receiver. Even better, fitted with a magnet so that plate does not fall off, when you are moving the trailer back and forth. There are after market products available with magnet. I improvised on my own with a piece of strong magnet from old hard drive.
2. I bought Dexter A-60 bolt-on top mount for two different trailers. I observed that in both cases, the mounting holes in the receiver does not exactly line up with holes in trailer tongue- off by about 1/16th of an inch. Looks like the inner unit welding to outer case could be the cause.

So I would rate the product as 4.5/5.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


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.

Worked great, replaced an old Atwood, welded in where the old one was cut out. Minor modification to the brake line, easy to bleed master cylinder and then bleed brake system. Coupler is extremely easy to use.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Paul is awesome!!
I was very pleased
with the way he handled the order. I was going to order it online but he suggested that he could possibly have it delivered in 3-4 days. Actually it was delivered in 24 hours.
I thought [other retailers] were quick about deliveries till I ordered from etrailer.
The coupler and the brake actuator fit perfectly and definitely was a great replacement from the Atwood coupler.
Thanks. Paul.

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

Received the brake actuator very fast, and it appears to be very well made. I have not as yet had time to weld it to the swing-away connection, but I don't think it will be a problem.

Product was exactly as advertised and the perfect replacement for my damaged one. Quick and accurate shipping had me back out fishing by the weekend. Very impressed with etrailer service levels.

  • What Type of Brake Fluid to Use in Dexter Surge Actuator # DX89FR
    DOT5 brake fluid is what you'd want to use in the Dexter surge actuator part # DX89FR. If the breakaway pin was pulled it would be replaceable. The breakaway cable is replaceable.

  • 2015 Ranger Boats z520c Replacement Coupler/Actuator
    I don't know what the exact replacement you'd need for your Ranger trailer is but the Dexter DX7.7L part # DX89FR would work great for you either way so it would be the solution I would recommend. It has plenty of capacity, is a more reliable design than some options, is disc brake compatible and would install easy.

  • Replacement Actuator for Tie Down LP7000 Surge Disc
    I looked up your Tie Down LP7000 actuator and it's basically a 7,500 lb capacity surge brake actuator for disc brakes with a low profile like the part # DX89FR which would be a really great option.

  • Replacement Actuator for a Model ACT-7.5K
    While we do not carry replacement parts for the Model ACT-7.5K actuator, I can recommend a replacement actuator. It's the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout, part # DX89FR. It has a 2" ball coupler and designed for hydraulic disc brakes. The electric reverse lockout lets you back up without actuating the trailer brakes. It's low-profile and corrosion-resistant. I've linked to a video review of this actuator for you to look at.

  • Could Dexter Surge Actuator # DX89FR Replace Tie Down LP 7000
    The Dexter DX 7.5 actuator part # DX89FR that you referenced is a very similar design to the Tie Down LP 7000 that you referenced. This would be a great replacement solution that may not bolt up exactly the same but would still work great.

  • Replacement Surge Brake Actuator for Reliable ACT-7.5K Brake Actuator
    I have a replacement for you but we do not carry the Reliable ACT-7.5K Brake Actuator. We have the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX89FR that will replace your surge brake actuator on your trailer. The specs match but the bolt holes may not line up so you likely will need to drill new holes.

    At this time we do not carry a compatible inner member for your Reliable ACT 7.5 KS actuator so I recommend replacing it with the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX89FR. This hydraulic actuator activates trailer's brakes when tow vehicle slows or stops and electric reverse lockout lets you back up without actuating trailer brakes.

  • Tie Down LP7000 Brake Actuator Replacement
    I do have an option for you but we don't offer any direct bolt-on swap options for the Tie Down Engineering LP7000 Actuator due to the age. That said, we do have plenty of great replacement options like the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator part # DX89FR but you'd have to drill a few new holes in the trailer. This actuator has a low profile design, is compatible with a 2" hitch ball, and is designed for disc brakes.

  • Replacement Brake Actuator for Tie Down Engineering LP7000
    In terms of capability the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K # DX89FR is a good replacement option. The problem is the design of your old TDE LP7000 which was installed inside the tongue of the trailer. The # DX89FR and others like it fit standard 3" wide trailer tongues. The actual inside dimension will be 3-1/8" to be able to go over the 3" tongue. With that 3-3/8" measurement you will not be able to fit a replacement actuator...

  • How to Replace Tie Down Engineering LP7000 Actuator
    I'm guessing it is approximately 3-3/8" across if you measured it. Unfortunately there are no options that will slide in because it won't line up correctly, and everything is designed to fit a 3" tongue so it is too wide to mount an actuator on top. Although it is not ideal, the only solution is to cut that off and replace the tongue with a standard 3" trailer tongue. Once you have a 3" wide trailer tongue you will be able to install an actuator like the # DX89FR you were looking at.

  • Replacement Actuator for a TDE Model LP7000
    To replace your TDE Model LP7000 actuator, I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout item # DX89FR. This coupler is designed to mount on top of a standard 3" wide trailer tongue. It measures right at 3-3/8" wide so this will fit into your 3-1/2" tongue. I recommend using some washers to make up the slight gap you are going to have on either side. This actuator is designed for disc brakes, it has a 7,500 lbs capacity, and fits a 2" ball.

  • Can Inner Slide Member be Replaced on UFP A-60 Actuator to Upgrade from Drum to Disc Brakes
    I do have an option for you but we wouldn't be able to provide a new inner slide member for the UFP A-60 Brake Actuator to convert this from drum to disc, it would need to be replaced in its entirely as it's simply too old. I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator part # DX89FR which will be a great fairly bolt-on swap for your existing actuator and it's rated for disc brakes so it allows you to upgrade for better stopping power.

    I have a solution for you that will work as a replacement. Unfortunately, we do not carry the correct replacement shock T4502000 for your Dico Aero 6000 actuator because it has been discontinued from production. I went ahead and reached out to Dexter axle (the makers of the Dico Aero 6000), and they said that, sadly, the only thing to do would be to replace the actuator itself.
