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.

Product works but when I back up. The actuator moves back and the brakes go on! Don’t know how to fix this. Now I put a c clamp on it to stop it from going in. 672812


Comments
Thanks for your review of your Titan actuator coupler T4747200, while the C-clamp works, there is a safer way to deactivate the surge brakes on your coupler. You can use an item called a reverse lock out. This will get signal from your tow vehicle when it is in reverse and will NOT apply the brakes on the trailer allowing you to back up. For your Model 6 actuator you can use the T4748800 lock out solenoid, and you may want a cover like T4836800183 as a solenoid shield that will help protect the reverse lock out solenoid. You will need to make sure that the solenoid is connected to the tow vehicle reverse light circuit, so if you have a 7-way on the trailervehicle then you would need to splice in and connect to the correct line. I have included a link to one of our help articles that shows the various locations of the reverse line depending on how the trailer is wired. If you have a 4-way flat, you can convert it to a 5-way taht will splice into the vehicle side reverse wiring, and the kit HM47890 includes both the trailer and vehicle side wiring harness. Another option for wiring the vehicle is to use a 5-Way adapter like part 47515 which will allow you to leave the 4-Way wiring connector on your vehicle and add the reverse light circuit to the adapter when towing this trailer.

Ask the Experts about this Titan Brake Actuator

  • Replacement for Titan Model 6 Trailer Brake Actuator
    That is a great photo, thank you; and while there are certain repair parts available for a Titan Model 6, I recommend replacing it altogether. The reason for this is the corrosion looks to have taken its toll on the actuator, and is at the point where a replacement makes the most sense in terms of safety and value. The Titan Model 60 is still a good option, and the right one will depend on if you have disc or drum brakes: - Disc Brakes: Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator - Disc - 2-5/16"...

  • Replacement Brake Actuator for Global Direct GDC-80 Brake Actuator
    We have the perfect replacement for your Global Direct GDC-80 brake actuator. Since you mentioned "down tongue" I believe you were referring to having an actuator with drop. If you have disc brakes, the best option is the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w/ Drop - Disc # DM8758811 and if you have drum brakes the best option is the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w/ Drop - Drum # DM8759411. Both of these actuators have a 4" drop, are compatible with a 2-5/16" hitch ball, have an 8,000 lb...

  • Are There Instructions To Replace the Breakaway Lever On a Titan Model 6 Actuator
    The correct replacement breakaway lever for your Titan Model 6 Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator part # T4747200 is the Replacement Breakaway Lever with Pin for Titan Model 6 Actuators part # T4594100. In regards to installation, this will be up to you as Titan does not provide any sort of write-up for this, mostly because the people who make this repair are trained technicians. That said, I have attached a parts breakdown of a Titan Model 6 Actuator for you and this should then give you a better...

  • Replacement Titan Hydraulic Surge Coupler With 2-5/16 Hitch Ball
    While there isn't a 6,000 lb model coupler available, there is a replacement from Titan that has an 8,000 lb capacity and will work with your 2-5/16" hitch ball, it just depends on the brakes you have (drum brakes or disc brakes): - Disc Brakes: Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator - Disc - 2-5/16" Ball - Bolt On - 8,000 lbs # T4747200 - Drum Brakes: Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator - Drum - 2-5/16" Ball - Bolt On - 8,000 lbs # T4079200 If you want to switch to a 2" ball you can do...

  • Difficulty Bleeding Trailer Brakes with Titan Model 6 Actuator
    It does take quite a bit of force to manually push in an actuator with or without the cap on. But the cap should be off when you bleed the brakes. Also, the longer the board the more leverage you can put on the coupler and the easier it will be to move it. I recommend using a vacuum pump brake bleeder # PTW87030 which makes things a lot easier. Also it is worth mentioning that if the fluid has no where to go then the actuator will only push in so far. So if you haven't opened a bleeder...

  • Replacement for Global Direct GDC80 Brake Actuator
    We do have actuators that will work with a trailer that has disc brakes and an 8,000 lb GTW. The Titan # T4747200 may be a great option depending on the hitch ball size you need. It works with a 2-5/16" hitch ball, bolts onto 3" wide channel tongues and has an 8,000 lb capacity and 800 lb tongue weight capacity. I have added a link to our page with each of our 8,000 lb capacity actuators that work with disc brakes for you to take a look at.

  • 8k Disc Brake Surge Actuator Recommendation
    It sounds like you have a # T4079200 and are looking to convert it so that it will be compatible with disc brakes. If you were using a single axle trailer you could simply ram a screw driver through the back of the check valve in the master cylinder so that the actuator would have higher pressure like what disc brakes require, but since you have a tandem axle trailer this setup would not give you enough fluid displacement to activate your brake assemblies. You will have to upgrade to...

  • Surge Brake Coupler Recommendation for 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Balls
    If you are looking for just a surge coupler that is designed to work on 2-5/16 inch balls you could use a Titan Zinc-Plated, Adjustable-Channel Brake Actuator # T4747200. This will work with disk brakes, has a capacity of 14,000 lbs and will work on 2-5/16 inch balls. However, we do not have a disk brake kit with a surge coupler kit that is designed for 2-5/16 inch balls. If you need hydraulic lines you would want a Deluxe Hydraulic Line Kit # 9579-2. If you also need hubs/rotors I would...

  • Can the Check Valve on a Titan Drum Brake Actuator be Removed for Use with Disc Brakes
    Technically, the check valve on the drum actuator, # T4079200, can be removed. However, it is not recommended to do so because you could end up damaging the master cylinder. It would be best to go with the appropriate actuator, # T4747200. You could also replace the master cylinder in the drum brake actuator using the disc brake master cylinder # T1777405.

  • Recommended Kit for Converting EZ Loader Boat Trailer Drum Brakes to Titan Disc Brakes
    The item you selected, Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator w/ Electric Lockout, part # T4747200, is zinc coated to prevent corrosion. To prevent warping, I would recommend allowing the brakes to cool after driving a long distance before backing your boat into the water. I would recommend The Titan Disc Brake Kit, part # T4747200, for a boat trailer rather than the Galphorite Coated Assemblies. With any brake assembly, heat can remain around the bearings and can be sucked in...

  • Troubleshooting a Dico Surge Brake Coupler on Boat Trailer with Disc Brakes
    From the information you have given, I believe that you have a Dico Model 10 actuator. We offer Master Cylinder, # T4747100, that can be used as a replacement if you choose to go this route. If the ridiculous noise still exists, I recommend that you replace your current brake actuator with one that has a weight capacity closer to the weight of your Trail Rite boat trailer. The Titan Disc Brake Actuator, # T4747200, has a weight capacity of 8,000 pounds.

  • Hydraulic Trailer Brakes Lock Up Moving Forward Using Titan Brake Actuator
    Disc brake actuators like # T4747200 do not have a check valve in them or a device to keep pressure in the system like drum brake actuators do. On a drum brake actuator there is a check valve inside the master cylinder that regulates the amount of pressure that goes back to the brakes. The wheel cylinders on hydraulic drum brakes will hold pressure as well. If the master cylinder and wheel cylinders (if the trailer has drum brakes) are fine then you could have some air in the system...

DO NOT allow brake fluid to contact painted surfaces since it will damage the finish. Wipe up any spills immediately and wash the area with water.

    If all the bearing numbers match then you could use this Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator, part # T4747200, on your trailer that has currently has oil bath hubs. You will want to take extra care to clean off all of the oil from the spindles before you install the new bearings from the # T4747200.

  • Which Titan Zinc Plated Surge Brake Actuator will Work with Drum Brakes
    The Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator - Drum - 2-5/16 inch Ball - Bolt On - 8,000 lbs, is the coupler you would need to order for use with drum brakes. The difference between the drum and disc actuator couplers is that the drum brakes have a check valve that holds a small amount of brake line pressure on the system, so that when the brakes are applied they will immediately apply the brakes, with no time lag for building initial pressure. Disc brake systems do not require this check valve...

  • Can 13 inch Trailer Wheels be Used with the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4747200
    The Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4747200 that you referenced has been confirmed to work on 13 inch trailer wheels like the part # AM20234 that you referenced so it would work well for you. I wasn't able to find any information on the TS3571EZ axle you have by Dexter, but I will say this will fit a Dexter 3,500 lb axle that has hubs on it currently that are inner bearing number of L68149 and outer bearing number of L44649. Pull your current hubs to check the bearings to be sure.
