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.

Because this model does not include a reverse lockout, it is recommended that you equip your trailer with free-backing brakes so that you can drive in reverse without triggering your trailer's brakes.

  • What Is Needed To Upgrade Brakes On Trailer With Tandem 7000 Lb Axles And Brakes On One Axle
    Disc brakes stop harder than drum brakes and require less maintenance. You will need to make sure the brakes all match if you are adding to the second axle. Also you will need to make sure you have the correct actuator. If you have drum brakes on your trailer, you will need to replace the brakes and actuator to those designed for disc brakes. I have attached a link to our product page for brakes that can be used for 7,000 lb axles. They are all 12 inch x 2 inch brakes. You can use the...

  • Does Titan Model 10 Actuator Replace Dico Model 10
    The DICO Model 10 that you have is essentially the exact same thing as the Titan Brake Actuator # T1607500 that you referenced. This would be an exact replacement.

  • Can Master Cylinder be Accessed From Front Of Titan/Dexter Model 10 Disc Brake Actuator
    No, you'll need to access the master cylinder from the rear of your Titan (now Dexter) Model 10 disc brake actuator. To replace it use the Replacement Master Cylinder Assembly # T4749501042, and I have linked a video below which shows how to do so, and accessing/installing it from the rear of the actuator.

  • Inner Slide Assembly Recommendation for a Titan Model 10 Actuator

  • What Is Top Width Of The Titan Brake Actuator T4749600?
    The top width of the Titan Brake Actuator - Painted - Disc - 2-5/16" Ball - Weld On - 12,500 lbs # T4749600 you were looking at measures right at 4" as shown in the included diagram. This will be the exact same dimension as the # T1607500, but you will need the # T4749600 for disc brakes as it has higher pressure which is required for disc brakes. The # T4749600 will be an exact replacement for the # T1607500 if that is what you have on your trailer, and is designed to fit 3" wide tongues...

    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.

  • Surge Drum Brake Actuator Solution for Older Trailer that has 4 inch Wide Frame
    I googled the grease seal number you mentioned and I did find some options online but when I looked up the size it wasn't one that we carry a suitable replacement for. For a coupler solution though you could use the Dexter part # T1607500 which you'd want to weld to the top of your trailer frame. It was not designed to fit over a frame channel so your width being wider than usual wouldn't be a factor.

  • Replacement Surge Coupler for my 7,500 lb. Boat Trailer
    We have what you need. The Dico 17550 refers to a 2-5/16" ball replacement not the actual actuator. For the actuator and coupler use the Titan Brake Actuator part # T1607500 will get you back up and running. This is for drum brakes and offers a 12,500 lb. capacity. Check out the linked video to see it and a more detailed description.. The HydraStar Hydraulic Brake Line Kit part # HS496-252 is the longest tandem kit I have. It includes all the mounting hardware and tee connectors but you...

  • Brake Solenoid for 85738 Atwood Surge Trailer Brake - Replace With

  • Replacement Coupler For Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes Weld On and Bolt On Option
    For a weld on option, Titan Weld on Brake Actuator part # T1607500 is a good option. The Titan Brake Actuator welds onto a 3" wide trailer tongue and takes a 2-5/16" ball. This actuator does not have a reverse lock out option. WIthout a reverse lockout you may not be able to backup the trailer without the brakes activating. If you have free backing brakes, you do not have to worry about that. We do not carry a standard ball coupler with electric lockout that is a weldon option. I recommend...

  • Actuator Solution that Can Fit 4 inch Wide Tongue
    You could weld an actuator like the Dexter Drum Brake Actuator part # T1607500 to the top of your trailer tongue but there isn't one that fits around a 4 inch wide tongue. If your brakes are disc instead you'd want the part # T4749600.

  • Replacement Master Cylinder for Titan Model 10 Actuator on 1999 Prestige Trailer
    Thanks for the photos of your trailer's actuator! They were very helpful in answering your questions. Based on the photos, it appears that you have a Titan Model 10 Actuator # T1607500. For a Model 10 actuator, the # DX66FR that you referenced is the correct replacement master cylinder.

  • Trailer Surge Brake Actuator Option For 3-1/2 Inch Wide Trailer Frame
    Almost all trailer brake actuators are designed for 3 inch wide trailer frames, the only option would be to weld a coupler on top of your 3-1/2 inch frame. The issue with this for you is that the options for those only accept a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, so if it all possible you would need to switch to that, with either the 1 inch diameter shank 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40005 or 1-1/4 inch diameter shank 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40030. If you can go to the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, then you can...
