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.

The reverse lockout can be engaged with a simple lever on the coupler. Once the lockout has been activated, you can back up your trailer without triggering the trailer brakes. Always remember to disengage the lockout mechanism when preparing to move forward.

  • Troubleshooting Disc Brakes with Aero-6000 on Four Winns Boat Trailer Dragging/Overheating
    The #17 nut that you are referring to for your Aero-6000 actuator (similar to part # T63FR) looks like it simply helps to keep the latch in place. If you are having problems with your brakes dragging and overheating then either your disc brakes/caliper need to be cleaned, your breakaway cable has been activated, or the internal components of your actuator are needing replacement. If you check your brakes/calipers and breakaway cable isn't activated then the only internal components...

  • Troubleshooting Dico Aero 6000 Surge Brake Actuator that Clunks and Brakes Get Hot
    Most likely it's just the shock since you described clunking and the brakes not fully releasing as that's a textbook symptom of a bad surge brake shock. Since you have a Dico Aero 6000 actuator the correct replacement shock would then be the part # T4502000. If you do determine it's the master cylinder or you just want to replace it now while you have it apart you'd want the part # T4395100 for if you have drum brakes or part # T4714200042 for if you have disc.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Hydraulic Brake Actuator for Older Boat Trailer
    Thanks so much for the info as well as the photo, but I took a look and there are no replacement parts for the master cylinder and shock you mentioned, which means the best option is going to be a brand new hydraulic brake actuator. To get the correct actuator you simply need to know if you have hydraulic drum brakes or disc brakes, the GVWR of your trailer, what size hitch ball the coupler needs to accept, and how it needs to mount. For example, if you had hydraulic drum brakes...

  • Recommended Replacement Actuator for Reliable ACT 7.5k
    We don't have any replacement parts available to fix your Reliable ACT 7.5k actuator but if you've got drum brakes you can use the Titan Brake Actuator with Manual Lockout - Bolt On - Drum - 2" Ball - 7,500 lbs Item # T63FR which comes with a manual lockout. If you've got disc brakes you can use the Dexter # DX89FR. These would be the two best options available for you to replace your old actuator. I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at, as well.

  • Recommended Replacement Surge Coupler for ATWOOD 82541 and Brake Assemblies
    The Atwood 82541 you referenced was discontinued a while back. The replacement I recommend is the Brake Actuator with Manual Lockout - Bolt On - Drum - 2" Ball - 7,500 lbs # T63FR. Then for your EZLoader drum brakes I recommend the Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Dacromet # AKUBRK-35-D if you have 10 inch drums or the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Free Backing # AKFBBRK-7 for 12 inch drums.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Titan Aero 7500 Brake Actuator With Manual Lockout # T63FR
    In the picture I have attached you will see the dimensions of the Titan Aero 7500 Brake Actuator # T63FR noted has an overall length of 20 inches. You mentioned that your trailer tongue is 3-1/4 inches wide - the standard width of a trailer tongue is 3 inches, so this (and industry standard) actuators have an inside width dimension of 3-1/8 inches to fit on the tongue. The outside dimension of the actuator is 3-1/2 inches. You may want to verify the width of your trailer - if it really...

    The Titan Brake Actuator # T63FR doesn't have a specific manual. There are just parts of a catalog that refer to it. I've attached those photos to assist. This product is the drum brake actuator for the Aero 7500 and has a manual lockout for backing up without activating the brakes.

  • Instructions for Welding Brake Actuator to Trailer Frame and Bleeding Brakes
    We happen to have a video on the proper procedure for bleeding trailer brakes and I have attached it for. As for the Titan Brake Actuator, part # T63FR, this was designed for bolt-on installation. In the event that you would ever have to access the innards, a bolt-on application makes this much easier. If you should still choose to weld the actuator to the trailer tongue, I recommend welding along the entire length of the actuator where it touches the trailer frame. I have included...

  • Does Demco Hydraulic Drum Brake Actuator 8605001 Have a Reverse Lockout Feature
    Titan brake actuator # T63FR does have a manual reverse lockout feature to let you back up the trailer without the brakes engaging. The lockout device can be seen in the linked review video at the 40-second mark. The other actuator coupler you mentioned, Demco coupler # 8605001 does NOT have any type of reverse lockout feature, neither a manual one like the Titan nor an electric type. Backing up a trailer that has a hydraulic surge coupler with no lockout will require free-backing brakes...

  • Replacement Surge Hydraulic Brake Actuator Recommendation To Replace Atwood 82541

  • How Does Titan Model 60 Actuator Manually Lock Out
    Locking out a Titan Model 60 actuator like the part # T63FR that you referenced requires inserting the lock out tool into the into the slot right behind the portion of the coupler that inserts into the outer casing. I pointed out where in the attached picture. The second picture shows the tool.

  • Replacement Actuator Recommendation for Atwood 85837 Master Cylinder
    We no longer carry the Atwood master cylinder you are looking for so your best option would be to replace the coupler.

It has a higher capacity at 7,500 pounds and still fits a 2 inch hitch ball. It's also a bolt on and includes a manaul lockout.

  • Replacement for Atwood Surge Brake Actuator
    The Atwood MPD 85778 is not actually a model number for their actuator, it is a literature number - basically a manual number so I wouldn't be able to tell you what a direct replacement would be. You will need to match your actuator to either drum or disc brakes, the weight capacity, coupler size and what size tongue it bolts onto. For example, if you had disc brakes, a 3" wide channel tongue, needed a 7,000 lb capacity and had either a 1-7/8", 2" or 50-mm hitch ball a great option...

  • Can Titan 7,500 lb Surge Actuator Replace Aero 6000 Kit on Trailer
    The Titan actuator part # T63FR that you referenced would work well as a direct replacement for your Aero 6000 surge actuator. Since you have replaced the assemblies already you wouldn't need to replace anything else when installing this actuator since the lines themselves are fine. Most likely your current actuator has a bad master cylinder and shock so replacing the whole thing is a great way to make sure the problem is taken care of.

  • What is the Difference Between a Manual Lockout and No Lockout Brake Actuator
    A brake actuator with a manual lockout, like part # T63FR, will have a lockout lever on the actuator that prevents the internal spring and shock from engaging the master cylinder when backing up (see photo). A no lockout brake actuator, like part # 8605001, does not have this feature, so the trailer would either need free-backing brakes or an electric lockout solenoid like part # DM11993 to keep the brakes from locking up while in reverse. Backing up a trailer with hydraulic surge...

  • Titan Surge Brake Actuator T63FR With Manual Reverse Lockout Operation
    The Brake Actuator with Manual Lockout - Bolt On - Drum - 2" Ball - 7,500 lbs # T63FR you referenced does have the lever for manual lockout. This lever keeps the hitch ball from putting pressure on the master cylinder plunger when installed. If it seems to do nothing uninstalled, that is because it doesn't have the force of the hitch ball pushing back into it or the hydraulic pressure on the other end to displace. The manual lockout should not be difficult to engage and should only be...

  • How to Tell if a Titan Model 60 Actuator has a Reverse Lockout
    Unless you know the exact part number of your Titan Model 60 Actuator that I can reference the best way for you to know if you have a lockout functions is for you to physically inspect the actuator. There are 2 different types of lockouts; manual and electric. A manual lockout is what part # T63FR has and you can see how it is operated in the attached review video. An actuator that has an electric lockout will have a solenoid # T4748800 install on the rearmost (trailer side) of the...

  • Will a Titan Aero 7500 Coupler Replace an Aero 6500
    According to my research, the Titan Aero 7500 and the 6000 Brake Actuating Couplers both use the same bolt pattern. To confirm this, you can compare the dimensions of the diagram I produced for you with the bolt holes on your trailer tongue. Increasing the capacity of your actuating coupler will not necessarily increase the capacity of your trailer. You will still be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated trailer component.

  • How to Release Atwood Surge Coupler Breakaway Lever
    If you have a partial application or full application of the breakaway cable, you will need to fully release the cable. I spoke with my contact at Atwood and he stated that you will need to seat the cable back into the actuator by feeding it through where it exits the coupler. The cable is attached to the push rod assembly and the cable has to be fed back through so the push rod can be properly released into the master cylinder. The cable actually attaches inside the brake fluid reservoir...
