Titan Brake Actuator - T4835700

The same quick-response braking that you get with the original BrakeRite actuator is now faster and easier to install. System combines the consistency of electric brake controllers with the power and effectiveness of hydraulic disc brakes.


  • Electric-over-hydraulic brake actuator mounts on trailer and plugs into the 7-way trailer connector
    • Electric current runs to control module when tow-vehicle brakes are applied
    • Signal triggers pump and motor on actuator, activating trailer brakes
  • Control module is compatible with most in-cab brake controllers
    • Brake controller (sold separately) is required to send signal from tow vehicle to trailer when brakes are applied
  • Pump-and-motor-based system increases response time compared with traditional hydraulic actuators
    • Trailer brakes are triggered when you apply brakes in tow vehicle, as opposed to when trailer pushes against hitch ball
  • Electronic, proportional pressure valve ensures that braking is smooth and effective
    • Controls braking pressure during long-term braking
  • Fluid reservoir is isolated and has diaphragm-type filler cap to prevent spills and leakage
  • Control board is fully enclosed in trailer-mounted module
  • Integrated, weather-sealed connectors make installation a snap
  • Quick, easy connecting every time with plug-in harness
  • Potted hybrid circuitry provides dependable service even under adverse conditions
  • BrakeRite II, control module, wiring harness, breakaway switch and breakaway battery harness included (battery sold separately)


  • Application: disc brakes
    • Compatible with drum brakes when used with optional reducer (T4844100)
  • Vehicle requires an in-cab electric brake controller and 7-way (blade style) trailer connector mounted near bumper (sold separately)
  • Ford and GM trucks with factory brake controller require adapter (T4845900)
  • 1-Year warranty

With a faster response time and more proportional braking than traditional, surge-type actuators, the BrakeRite is perfect for nearly any towing application from light to heavy duty. The system works with most in-cab brake controllers to sense when and how you apply the brakes in the tow vehicle. An electrical signal is then sent to the control module to trigger the actuator's pump and motor. Brake fluid is released and sent to the trailer brakes to activate them. The result is real-time braking that, thanks to the electronic proportional valve system, is also smooth and controlled.

BrakeRite SD Control Module

The Severe-Duty (SD) kit has nearly everything you need, from the BrakeRite II actuator itself to a self-contained, remote-mounted control module. Even an electronic breakaway switch, complete with battery harness, is included. And the user-friendly design simplifies installation even further by including wiring harnesses and weather-sealed connectors for simple plug-and-play setup.

Installation instructions are weak. Evidently I am going to have to have a mounting plate manufactured to mount the unit. I can not mount the unit till I get the weight distribution hitch so that I can be sure that one doesn't interfere with the other. There is little to no information on the internet to help with the installation. No visible information on the manufacturer's web site. 139379


My experiences are similar. Beautiful wiring connections but very difficult to installI advise against this kit for following reasons:1. The kit includes a several foot long pigtail to install between truck 7 prong connector and pigtail connected on RV. A very short three wire connector comes off of the pigtail. It is too short to connect to the controller so I will cut it off Nd splice it into longer wires. Will discard the new pigtail which would just get in the way.2. In spite of being called severe duty I was shocked to see that the controller box is not sealed against the weather. I will seal it before installing.3. Of necessity, the entire installation will be several feet from the kingpin and underneath the RV. This will require the splice I mentioned before and direct connection to wires from the RV pigtail. I cant imagine how the Titan folks thought this could be installed on an RV with kingpin with the wiring they provide.4. The breakaway switch wiring will also have to be extended.The plug and play design does not deliver on its promise. I recommend you save yourself some money and buy the Brakerite EHB that has just five wires coming out of it to manage.

Thanks for your feedback, but this system is traditionally used on traditional hitch/bumper pull style of electric over hydraulic trailers. This is why the wiring lengths are not ideal for your application.

works as designed the plug had to be devided as not adaptable for fifth wheel woud recomend other unit which has every thing build inside as to only have to run 4 wires 334461


I had to upgrade my fifth wheel to a motorhome do to my wifes disability how ever every thing worked out just fine fo the short time I used it.

This is so easy to install you can not mess it up even if you tried. The plugs will only plug into the plug it goes to. The only issue I had was the manual I got said that the batteries that you order for the breakaway switch should ground to the trailer. I contacted Titan and they said that I got a old manual and they no longer recommend trailer grounding and emailed me a current manual. I think for the price they should send out updated manuals. The hardest part of the install is routing the wires to make it look like a clean install because it is so much wiring. It stops my 5,000lb boat like it is nothing. 170267


I would like to add a update about this system. My boat trailer wound up submerged in 6 feet of saltwater for 3 hours and I just knew it was toast. I got the the trailer home and washed it down with fresh water and the only thing I have had to replaced is the connector the comes from the batteries to the control unit. I have put 700 miles on the trailer without issue. The brake fluid had no saltwater in it and stayed sealed. This is one TOUGH unit

  • Wiring Adapters for Using GMC Integrated Brake Controller with Titan EOH Actuator
  • For your GMC Sierra 3500 with the factory-integrated trailer brake controller you will want the BrakeRite EHB Adapter # T4846000 if your boat trailer has the EOH actuator model # T4834100. If instead you have the BrakeRite II Severe Duty actuator # T4835700 then you will want to use part # T4845900.

  • Comparison of Titan EOH Brake Actuators Parts # T4813100 and # T4834100
  • When you look at the product descriptions and the pictures they look basically identical. However, the Replacement Actuator, part # T4834100, is specifically designed to work with the BrakeRite II Severe Duty, part # T4835700, and that's all it works with. If you have this and need a new actuator then part # T4834100 is what you need. The Titan BrakeRite EHB, part # T4813100, is what you need if you're trying to add electric over hydraulic brakes to your trailer. I've attached some...

  • I spoke with my contact at Titan who said that they have been experiencing some issues with the OEM brake controllers in the 2018 Ram 3500 pickups like what you have. He did say that it is hit and miss at this point so your controller may or may not work directly with the BrakeRite system but we do have a solution for you if it doesn't work properly. If you experience disconnect while using the system you can just us the Titan BrakeRite SD Adapter # T4845900 if you are having the Titan...

  • Troubleshooting BrakeRite Not Working with 2018 Chevy Silverado with OEM Brake Controller
  • It sounds like you are trying to use the factory brake controller in your 2018 Chevy Silverado with the BrakeRite electric-over-hydraulic actuator. If this is the case then what you need is an adapter that allows your OEM controller to communicate properly with the actuator. If you have the BrakeRite EHB # T4822500 for drum brakes or # T4813100 for disc brakes then you need the adapter # T4846000. If you have the BrakeRite II Severe-Duty # T4835700 then you would need the adapter #...

  • Does Wiring Need to be Added to Install Titan Brakerite II SD on Trailer
  • The Titan BrakeRite II Severe-Duty Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit # T4835700 that you referenced does have some features to it that help make it install easier, but in reality when you are adding EOH brakes to a trailer there is quite a bit of involvement to install everything that's unavoidable. It's not unusual to have to add length to the wiring like in our install video that I attached to this page as well. I also attached a wiring diagram for the kit for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Weak Brakes with Ford Factory Brake Controller and Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • The issue you are describing may be related to the factory brake controller in your 2012 Ford F-350 and its compatibility with the electric over hydraulic actuator you have on the trailer. For example, the Titan BrakeRite II Severe-Duty Actuator # T4835700 will require a separate adapter # T4845900 for it to work well with 2006.5-2012 Ford trucks. The adapter will allow for proper communication with the factory brake controller and regulate the amperate to an appropriate level. If you...

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation with Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for 4,400 lb Axle
  • We can piece you together a kit similar to the part # T4843700 for a 4,400 lb axle but we don't have a complete kit. You'd need the disc brake kit part # K2HR526D and then you'd need the Titan BrakeRite II Severe-Duty Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit # T4835700. Finally you'd need a brake line kit like # 20TA-BLKIT and you'd be set. Prices are available at product links.

  • Troubleshooting Titan BrakeRite SD Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Kit
  • Good news, I can help you troubleshoot your Titan BrakeRite SD # T4835700 on your trailer. First thing to know is that a braking system is necessary when pulling a trailer equipped with brakes. The BrakeRite SD system is a good system for Electric over Hydraulic (EOH) brakes which it sounds like your trailer has. Since you have an EOH system on your trailer you will need to have a compatible brake controller on your 2015 GMC. If your GMC has a factory integrated brake controller...

  • Can Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator Be Fully Submerged
  • I spoke with my contact at Titan about the BrakeRite II # T4835700. He confirmed that they do not recommend completely submerging the BrakeRite. I also spoke with Dexter Axle to see if their Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuators, # K71-651, can be submerged. They confirmed that their actuators are not designed to be fully submerged. Though also not recommended to be submerged, the most likely contender to hold up to being fully submerged is the Hydrastar Marine Grade Electric...

  • Titan BrakeRite EOH Actuator Will Not Lock Up Disc Brakes on 9,000 Pound Trailer
  • Does the trailer have 1 axle or 2? And if 2 do both of the axles have brakes? If not that could be the problem if the brakes are not rated high enough for the weight of the trailer. I assume you have tried bleeding the brakes but if not try bleeding the brakes to see if maybe there is air in the lines. You can also check to make sure the brake pads are actually moving in and out by removing a wheel and having someone apply the brakes in the truck by using the manual override on the brake...

  • Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brake Setup Recommendation for a Tandem Axle Trailer
  • If you do have 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern wheels you would want to start with two sets of the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R526D. These will work on your 5 bolt mounting flange, have enough capacity as they are for 5,200 and 6,000 lb axles. I would strongly recommend you determine your bolt pattern before you buy anything though. Check out the FAQ article I attached on determining bolt patterns.

  • We are often asked about how to bypass the factory-installed integrated trailer brake controller (ITBC) in the GMC Sierra and other vehicles. The ease of use and reliability offered by the Tekonsha P3 # 90195 make this a popular option to bypass a factory-installed brake controller. Based on customers experiences I suggest you go for the P3. I have linked an article that covers the process for installing an aftermarket controller in your vehicle.

  • Differences Between Kodiak and Titan Disc Brake Kits
  • Both of these manufacturers make excellent products and both products have received excellent customer reviews.

The Kodiak kit # K2HR35D does not have a brake kit with actuator available.

  • Are Electric Over Hydraulic Trailer Brake Actuators Compatible with Factory Brake Controllers
  • It all depends on which electric over hydraulic actuator you are using. If your truck has an integrated brake controller it might be compatible. But you mentioned having a 2009 2500HD but I do not know if it is a Silverado, Sierra, or Ram. If we are talking factory integrated controllers then GM trucks are not compatible with the HydraStar # HBA16, # HBA-12, or # HBA-10 unless you use adapter # HBA-CAM (which only works with the model HydraStars indicated on its product page).

This particular adapter is for the SD version of the BrakeRite system, # T4835700. The plugs are color coded on the adapter and SD wiring so you know where to plug it in. For the BrakeRite EHB system you would use adapter # T4846000. The BrakeRite EHB Adapter is wired by splicing the blue wire into the electric brake feed circuit going into the BrakeRite...
