Note: Do not power wash the HydraStar actuator or take it through a commercial car wash. High-pressure water may damage the seals on the actuator.


The HydraStar electric-over-hydraulic trailer brake actuator applies pressure to your trailer's hydraulic brake system in response to the electrical signals sent from your factory brake controller. As a result, your trailer's hydraulic brakes will be activated every time you apply the brakes in your vehicle or press the manual override on your controller.


Pair the HydraStar electric-over-hydraulic actuator with your trailer's disc brakes to get the best possible braking setup. With disc brakes, you already have more consistent braking at higher speeds and a shorter stopping distance than you'd get with drum brakes. In addition to more reliable braking, you also have less cost to maintain the brakes as there are fewer moving parts. Combine these benefits with an electric brake controller and you'll get greater control over your already superior brakes, providing you with the best braking performance.


HydraStar Electric-Over-Hydraulic Actuator vs. Standard Surge Brake Actuators

With the HydraStar electric-over-hydraulic actuator, you can get all the benefits of towing with an electric brake controller while using hydraulic brakes. Because this actuator will activate according to the settings you have chosen for your factory brake controller, you will have more control over when and how your trailer brakes engage. Depending on the features of your brake controller, you may be able to control both the rate and intensity with which your trailer's brakes activate. You can also use the manual override on your brake controller, which allows you to engage the trailer brakes without having to apply the brakes in your vehicle. And perhaps most impressive, if you have a proportional brake controller, your brakes will be activated with an intensity that matches the braking speed and power of your rig.


This pump-and-motor-based system increases response time compared with traditional actuators because the trailer brakes are triggered when you apply the brakes in the tow vehicle, as opposed to when the trailer pushes against the hitch ball. This not only gives you faster, more efficient braking, but it also eliminates the pushing sensation that occurs in setups that use standard surge brake actuators.


HydraStar actuators are also beneficial because, unlike standard surge couplers, they allow you to activate your brakes when reversing down an incline, such as a boat ramp. Having the ability to brake in reverse gives you more control and prevents wear on your tow vehicle.


Durable, Marine-Grade Construction

The HydraStar Marine actuator is ideal for use on boat trailers. Just like other HydraStar electric-over-hydraulic actuator models, this system is built of extruded anodized aluminum for superior corrosion resistance. The weathertight seals protect internal components from the elements. The HydraStar Marine actuator also features marine-grade gaskets and stainless steel hardware that won't rust. These extra features make it perfect for marine applications.


This actuator also has a vented end plate that releases pressure, moisture, and heat to help prevent any internal damage. Unlike models that are unable to release heat and pressure, this vented actuator can be safely mounted inside of a compartment on your trailer. As a result, this actuator is great for gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers where finding space on the tongue can be nearly impossible.

Video Transcript for Review of Hydrastar Brake Actuator - Electric-Hydraulic Brake Actuator - HS481-8067

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff @etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Hydrastar Plug and Play Disc Brake electric over hydraulic actuator system for factory brake controllers. Now, this Hydrastar Plug 'N' Play System makes installing your hydraulic brake system a snap. The plug and play is designed for simple, easy installation with no hard wiring that's required. And the system is designed to work with your factory brake controller.

The system will include everything laid out here on the table. It includes this Hydrastar actuator. Again, plug and play. The breakaway battery kit and the breakaway cable, which are all plug and play also. The plug and play seven-way harness and the control adaptor module here, which is also plug and play.

Does come with a nice instruction manual to describe how everything hooks up and how it operates.Now, this electric over hydraulic brake actuator is designed to activate your trailer's hydraulic brakes. When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the factory brake controller will send a signal from the tow vehicle to this actuator. When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, this offers improved functionality, when compared with surge brake couplers gives you a faster response time. In other words, your trailer brakes are triggered when you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, as opposed to when the trailer pushes against the hitch ball. There's no need to manually lock out your brakes when you back up.

The trailer brakes can be intentionally activated when you reverse as a manual override or the manual override that's on your brake controller can be activated so that you can engage the trailer brakes without having to apply your vehicle brakes. Now on this actuator, a missing has a vent right here.This vented end plate will release pressure, moisture, and heat in order to protect the internal components of the actuator. This allows the x-ray to be mounted in a place where most actuators would overheat. So as a result, this actuator's great for gooseneck fifth wheel trailers for finding space on your tongue can be nearly impossible as does using electronic proportional pressure valve ensures that the braking is smooth and effective, right at the top here has this built-in bleeder screw, which will let you easily flush air out of your brake lines and right down here at the bottoms where your brake line will attach. This is a hydraulic brake line port three 16 size.

it says made of a durable extruded aluminum provide superior corrosion resistance. Does use Marine grade gaskets and stainless steel hardware makes it ideal for Marine use.Now over here is the control adapter module. This is included to give you a compatibility with your four Dodger GM factory brake controller, this module, while they actuator to work with your factory brake controller and the same way, it's an easy plug and play installation. No hard wiring is required. This whole system is DLT, Department of Transportation compliant. This unit will install on your trailer frame, connects to your trailer's wiring. And the hydraulic brake lines. Again, this is designed for single tandem or triple axle trailers, just disk brakes, maximum output pressure on this actuator is 1600 PSI that's for it's designed for disk brakes.Power is 12 volts DC. The last thing we to do is just give you some dimensions on the actuator. Let you know how big it is, but if we measured the length of it. So, we're going to measure including these mounting tabs right here on the bottom. So if we go from one end all the way to the other end, you can see it's going to be right at eleven and three-quarter inches long. The height bottom to the very top where the cap is, the tallest point is seven and three eights inches tall, and the width, the widest point is going to be right at three inches. That should do it for the review on this Hydrastar Plug and Play Disc Brake electric over hydraulic actuator system for the factory brake controllers..
