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.

Video Transcript for Titan Brake Actuator - Surge Brake Actuator - T4747200 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Titan Zinc-Plated Bolt-On Disc Brake Actuator, designed to fit a 2-5/16 diameter hitch ball, has an 8,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this hydraulic actuator will synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow vehicle brakes. Uses a unique roller design, which will reduce resistance during the telescoping of the actuator, to help create a nice straight line movement. It is a sturdy, durable steel construction, helps resist bending in any jackknife situations. The coupler right up front here is a standard heavy-duty coupler, designed to fit a 2-5/16 hitch ball. Basically, if you just pull open just like that, that'll drop onto the hitch ball.

Once it's on there, just rotate that back down, and you can see that that will lock it into place. It does come with this breakaway kit. Let me just unhook it here so I can show you. The breakaway kit would come with this cable attached to the lever, and has a carabiner hook on this end, that you just push open, hook it to your tow vehicle, and what'll happen is if your trailer ever runs into a detached situation, where it'll become detached from the tow vehicle, it'll pull on this cable, which will activate the lever. That'll activate the brakes on the trailer, to keep it from a runaway situation. Now, this actuator has a zinc plating. It helps provide corrosion resistance.

It is a bolt-on installation. If you look on the bottom of the holes right here, this will bolt onto your trailer tongue. The application for this actuator is on a disc brakes on the trailer. The ball size, again, it's a 2-5/16 diameter. The mounting on this, it'll fit a 3" wide channel tongue.

The weight capacity is 8,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight is 800 pounds. On the rear here, the master cylinder is right underneath here. You can see it has the cap that you can unscrew to put brake fluid in the cylinder. The other thing I want to mention, on the very back here, here's your connection for your hydraulic brake lines. Now, this model actually does not include reverse lockout, so we do recommend that you equip your trailer with free backing brakes, so you can drive in reverse without triggering your trailer's brakes.

That should do it for the review on the Titan Zinc-Plated Bolt-On Disc Brake Actuator, designed for a 2-5/16 ball, and a 8,000 pound weight capacity.

Ask the Experts about this Titan Brake Actuator
Do you have a question about this Brake Actuator?


  • 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...

  • Recommended Disc Brake Conversion For Tandem Axle Boat Trailer With 13 Inch Wheels
  • We don't have a kit for 13 inch wheels, but I can give you all the components you need. For your rotor/hubs, you will need 2 of the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 8" Rotor/Hub - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs # K2HR35D-8. This will require 4 of the # L68149 bearings, 4 of the # L44649 bearings and 2 of the Grease Seal - Double Lip - ID 1.719" / OD 2.565" - for 3,500-lb Axles - Qty 2 # RG06-050. Then you will need the tandem brake lines, and I recommend the Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Line...

  • Replacement Actuator Recommendation for Atwood 82541
  • The Atwood actuator you mentioned is no longer available but we can help replace it. To replace it I recommend the Titan, part # T4747200. It has a higher capacity at 8,00 pounds and still fits a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. It's also a bolt on and includes a manaul lockout. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out.

  • Actuator Recommendation for a Triple Axle Trailer Going from Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes
  • Some drum brake actuators can have the check valve removed or punctured to allow it to function disc brake setups, but this won't work for a triple axle brake setup because drum brake actuators just don't have the volume to activate the disc brakes. Basically you are going to need to replace your actuator since the one you currently have won't be able to activate your new brakes. There is an off-chance that you could replace the master cylinder of the actuator and be able to convert...

  • Will the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843200 Work on a Trailer With Dual Axles at 3700 lbs Each
  • The Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator, # T4843200, can be used on a trailer with dual axles rated at 3,700 lbs each, however, if the trailer is loaded beyond the capacity of the brakes, then they will not be as effective as they would be within capacity. Keep in mind that this kit is designed for 14 or 15 inch wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I would also recommend checking your wheel bearing and seal part numbers and make sure they match the bearings and seals...

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Convert Triple Axle Trailer from Electric Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes
  • We can help you with the planned conversion of your triple axle trailer from electric drum brakes to disc brake operation. A great place to start are the articles I linked for you, which cover all of the considerations and components needed to make the switch to either hydraulic disc brakes or electric-over-hydraulic disc brakes. In the EOH set-up you will still need a trailer brake controller like the P3 # 90195 to activate the EOH actuator. For a purely hydraulic set-up you will need...

  • Which Reverse Lockout to Use with a Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator T4747200
  • The correct solenoid to use with the Titan actuator part # T4747200 that you referenced is the part # T4748800. It sounds like your current solenoid is either broken or possibly has a bad ground and just isn't functioning properly.

  • 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.

  • How to Know What Weight Rating is Needed When Converting from Drum to Disc Brakes
  • Good questions and there is a lot here so let's start with the simplest thing, the weight rating. Trailer brakes are rated based on their axle; for example, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35D-8 is designed for a 3,500 lb axle and a tandem axle trailer with a pair of 3,500 lb axles would need two of these, so the first thing to know is the weight rating of your axles. Then to get the correct fit, since you are replacing a hub and drum, you are going to need a disc brake kit with a hub...

  • 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.

  • How to Bleed Trailer Surge Brakes
  • There are a couple of ways you can bleed a trailer brake system. Titan offers the following instructions, which I have also linked for you, on bleeding the brakes: Remove the master cylinder cap and fill the reservoir to three quarters full with DOT-3 brake fluid. 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 you choose to manually bleed the system, an assistant makes the job easier....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
