Disc Brakes

More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter stopping distance than drum brakes.

Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts to have to repair or replace, thus reducing maintenance costs.


Integral Hub-and-Rotor Assemblies

The integral hub-and-rotor is made from cast iron, matching SAE specifications. Cast iron is ideal for high-temperature operations and offers a favorable friction coefficient to ensure adequate stopping power. Kodiak's rotors are vented to effectively dissipate heat, dramatically reducing the incidence of heat-related damage. Furthermore, machined disc brakes minimize the chance of contamination between the hub and rotor, resulting in excellent performance and long life.


Calipers

Kodiak calipers are constructed of cast iron to prevent flexing. Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake.


Mounting Brackets

Designed for axles with 5-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty ductile iron that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the bolts.

I have a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel, towing a 2017 Pinnacle 36FBTS 5th. wheel. The Pinnacle has a standard drum braking system. On a long trip this year I cracked both rotors on my truck from over heating related to the Pinnacle's drum brakes failing to fully provide proper stopping.
I decided no more, and after much review I replaced the factory drum brakes with the Kodiak Discbrake system. (my first time ever doing something like this) In addition, one of the key items for me was a way not to replace my on-board factory trailer brake controller, (did not want to use an aftermarket product, that would diminish the interior look ) thus I also added the control Adapter Module that enabled me to use the factory installed brake controller. With all this change I decided to also go ahead and add a separate brake away battery. Everything I just described are shown in the attached photos.

I found eTrailer extremely helpful in answering questions, although I did not have a lot of questions since their online videos proved most helpful.

All parts of the Kodiak system worked fantastic following a 2500 mile trip. The improved braking is superior, and I did not need to replace my on board controller, but continued to use it by installing the control adapter. The disc brake picture is one of the disc brakes that I examined following our trip...all in perfect shape with everything working great for the entire trip.

Still just as good as ever absolutely no problems.

One year ago I decided to switch to Kodiac Disc Brakes. It was a great decision. I installed them on my 16 k Escalade fifthwheel. I installed all new wheel bearings and oil bath hubs. Although The oil caps leaked slightly and Kodiac sent new ones I still had the issue. I resolved it by using the Dexter oil caps. I believe the o rings were the issue. I have been a customer of Etrailer for about seven years and they have always been very helpful and provided five star service.
My fifthwheel stops a lot quicker than the brake shoes did. If you are thinking about it don't wait any longer order yours now and you will not be disappointed. Good job everyone at Etrailer.




by:

It all went together as expected and seems to be fine. One of the fittings for the brake line was a bit mucked up, but I think we'll be able to use it (thus a 4 not 5). They arrived as expected and worked fine.




by:

This braking system is the best now you can drive with confidence knowing that when you apply your brakes your going to stop there should be some more stars they only have 5 am adding 5 more

The staff at e trailer is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to do business with.
Thank you Ashley for your help

I have had these brakes on my trailer for the past year. They stop 100% better than the old drum brakes. Worth pointing out that I had purchased axles and Kodiak disc brakes from another vendor originally. I ended up having to return them due to manufacturing defects and shipping other incorrect parts. I purchased the remaining parts here from etrailer for slightly more than originally paid at the other vendor. These rotors are noticeably heavier duty, the flanges are slightly thicker and these came with the 9/16” hardware. I could have saved a ton of time just coming straight to etrailer.




by:

The brake system has certainly exceeded expectations and is clearly one of the best RV upgrades I've made. Stopping distance is greatly improved. Installation is a breeze for even semi-mechanically inclined. The only small bit of an issue was one of the four caliper brackets I received was different than the others, but as it turned out either of the styles worked. I'd definitely add the wet hub option which adds bearings and a different inboard grease seal to the shopping list. It's worth the extra few dollars.




by:

Kodiak brakes are very well made and the fit is perfect. Etrailer is so easy to work with. I ordered the wrong brake the first time, but Cathy H. arranged the return and got the right part on the way. I wish every business provided such a pleasant experience.

  • Converting Electric Brakes To Disc Brakes On Trailer
    Installing disc brakes on your trailer will not cause a problem with clearance. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, part # K2HR79E has a 13-inch rotor and an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. This kit is designed for a 5-bolt brake flange. There are other items you will need to convert your electric brakes to either electric over hydraulic disc or hydraulic disc brakes. I have attached links to a couple helpful articles that explain what is needed to do the conversion. If you have any questions about...

  • Do Caliper Pins Need to be Lubricated When Installing Disc Brakes on a Trailer
    The caliper pins do not need lubrication on a trailer. I've attached a video and an article on installing disc brakes for you to take a look at. Although it wouldn't hurt anything if they are lubricated either.

  • Will Kodiak Brake Kit K2HR79E Fit a 2013 Heartland Sundance with 7k Lippert Axles
    The hub you have has the same bearings that a 7k axle will have. That means that the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E will fit it even though the bearing numbers are slightly different. The inner diameters of the bearings are the same though so that's what really matters when fitting it to a spindle. Your EZ lube spindles can also be easily converted to oil bath. The zerk fitting would be behind the screw on grease cap so it's not like it would leak oil.

  • How to Determine if the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E Would fit an RV Trailer
    There is a strong chance the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E that you referenced would fit your 7k ALKO axles but you will need to verify this by getting the numbers off the bearings you currently have in your hubs. If they are 25580 inner and 02475 outer this kit would work well for you.

  • Will 7k Kodiak Disc Brake Kit with 9/16 inch Studs Fit Same Spindle as Kit with 1/2 inch Studs
    As far as your spindle is concerned all that matters is that the inner diameter of the bearing is the same, which it is between the bearing numbers # 14125A and # 02475 so the 9/16 inch stud kits you mentioned for the Lippert 7k axles would work well. The Kodiak kit part # K2HR79E would fit your spindle and work well. It has the stud size you want also. I also attached a link to a page that has a guide for converting trailer brakes from drum to disc for you to check out as well.

  • Can Grease Be Used in an Oil-Bath Style Hub
    There's no reason grease couldn't be used in an oil-bath hub. Oil requires a tighter seal than the grease does so the grease will work fine in an oil bath hub. If you were interested in using the part # K2HR79E you could use it with grease.

  • What Size Bolts Are Needed To Install Caliper Mount Bracket For Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2HR79E?

I also had them measure the center hole of the bracket and it measures 3.244" as you can see in the included diagram. I included a video of the # K2HR79E for you to take a look at.

  • Can Trailer With 7k Axles Run Different Size Rotors on Front and Rear Axle
    You need to run the exact same size brakes on both axles of your trailer. Otherwise one axle's brakes will grab harder than the other one's and you'd not be able to maximize your braking power. Since you have 7k axles I'd recommend running both axles with 13 inch rotors like the part # K2HR79E that you referenced.

  • What Synthetic Oil Should I Use for Oil Bath Hubs?
    When it comes to keeping your Kodiak Disc Brakes # K2HR79E lubricated you'll want to use the Kodiak Synthetic Bearing Oil for Oil Bath Hubs # XLPROLUBE. This is a synthetic oil specifically designed for oil bath bearings and will work very well on your new oil bath setup.

  • Difference Between Oil Bath Hub and Grease Hubs
    Yes, oil hubs and grease hubs use the same cavity to oil and grease, through the center cap. The main difference is a standard grease hub for an EZ lube spindle is grease is pressed into place and maintained through the center cap and an oil bath hub cap, has a rubber seal, holds oil and screws into the hub. The Kodiak Disc Brake kit part # K2HR79E is an oil bath hub so the center cap of the hub fills with oil. The oil in the center cap oils the spindle while you going down the road....

  • Recommended Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for Dexter Trailer Axle # 8327830
    Yes, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E referenced in your question will fit and work on the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 8327830 that you're needing for your trailer. The spindles on this axle are compatible with the bearings and seal that are used with the Kodiak hubs. As you also mentioned, these 13 inch rotors feature a 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. They will work with 16 inch or larger wheels. I have attached an installation video for this kit that you can take a look at as well.

  • Will Disc Trailer Brakes that Mount to a 4-Bolt Flange with a 5-Bolt Mounting Flange
    The brake assembly in the picture you submitted has a 5-bolt pattern. The mounting brackets included with Kodiak disc brake kit # K2HR858DE mount on a 4-bolt pattern so this particular kit would not work for your trailer. All of the disc brake sets for 8k axles with the 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern mount on a 4 bolt pattern. If you happen to have 7K axles with an 8 on 6-1/2 wheel bolt pattern then you could use kit # K2HR79E which does have the 5-bolt mounting pattern for the brakes. If you...

  • Picking Out Trailer Hub/Rotors for Dexter 7,000 lb Axle
    I really wish I had a way to look that up but since either hub would fit the same spindle that info isn't available for me to look up. You'll have to measure the stud diameters and go with the part # K2HR79E if they are 9/16 inch or part # K2HR712D if they are 1/2 inch.

  • Which Kodiak Brake Kit Fits 8,000 lb Dexter Axle
    For your Dexter 7,000 lb torsion axle the disc brake kit you'd want is the Kodiak part # K2HR712D which is the right capacity, fits your spindle, and is Dacromet coated which means it will do a great job fighting corrosion. I would recommend going with a higher capacity than needed as it may not fit and it will be hard to get the correct braking strength.

  • Oil Bath Seals for Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for 7K Axles and 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Yes, using oil bath hub seals # 10-63 will work with the Kodiak disc brake kit you ordered, # K2HR79E. The kit already has the oil caps so you wouldn't need those. The brake kit does not include the bearings. You would need 2 of # 25580 and 2 of # 02475.

  • Correct Kodiak Disc Brake Hub/Rotor with E-Coat for Dexter 8-133/133-8 with 9/16" Studs
    Yes, the Kodiak 13" Hub and Rotor part # KHR1389E will work in place of a Dexter 8-133/1333-8 Hub. We also offer the kit as well, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2HR79E.

  • Does the Mounting Flange of the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2HR79E Fit 5 Bold Mounting Flange
    The Kodiak disc brake kit part # K2HR79E that you referenced is actually designed to fit brake mounting flanges on axles that have the 5 bolt mounting pattern. There are several holes in the bracket that you can see in the product pictures but that is to allow the bracket to be installed in several different orientations on the trailer. This comes with 9/16 inch wheel studs that will work well with your current rims but you will need new lug nuts. For that you would need part # 6-53.
