Perfect for Boat Trailers

Kodiak disc brakes installed on a trailer

If you tow a boat trailer, live in a coastal area, or experience a lot of snow, slush, and salt on the roads, you know how corrosive salt and water can be. Because disc brakes last longer than drum brakes, you should consider how things like rust might impact your trailer over time.


The Dacromet coating on these brakes offers great corrosion protection, even with frequent use in freshwater and saltwater. It can withstand 300 to 400 hours of continual exposure to salt spray before corrosion begins, which is comparable to galvanized steel. So - unless you're driving your trailer through water for 2 weeks straight with no chance for the brakes to dry - it'll be a while before any rust starts to form.


Get a Safer, More Comfortable Ride

Say goodbye to the days of your truck being pushed and pulled by your trailer. Disc brakes provide a safer, more comfortable ride than drum brakes. They offer shorter stopping distances and deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds. So, you won't have to worry about things crashing around in your trailer or camper next time you reach unexpected traffic on the highway or debate if you can actually stop before that yellow light turns red.


Save Time and Money

More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes. Not only do disc brakes provide more controlled braking than drum brakes, but they also save you money by having fewer parts to maintain.


diagram comparing the number of parts in drum brakes and disc brakes

Unlike drum brakes, which have springs, magnets, and shoes that may need to be continually adjusted or replaced, disc brakes are virtually maintenance-free. There are no springs, cables, or other little components that you'll need to worry about failing.


disc brake caliper and brake pad

The brake pads will naturally wear down, so eventually you'll have to replace them. But these pads are also way easier to replace than drum brake shoes. The caliper - where the pads are housed - is located on the outside of the brake assembly. This means you just have to remove that one part to replace the brake pads rather than having to remove the entire assembly like you would with drum brakes.


close up view of vented rotor

This particular kit can save you time and money over other disc brakes on the market as well. A slip-on rotor may be easier to install initially, but water can find its way between the rotor and your existing hub, causing uneven rotor wear or runout. With a 1-piece hub-and-rotor assembly, water and debris can't get in to cause any corrosion or contamination.


In addition, vented rotors, like these, disperse heat faster than non-vented rotors. When brakes retain heat, they are more likely to experience brake fade, or loss of braking power. So even if you take your boat or camper out every weekend, these trailer brakes will continue to offer excellent performance throughout their long life.


mounting bracket supporting disc brake

Kodiak disc brakes have a unique caliper mounting bracket as well. The side-support design puts all of the weight on the mounting bracket instead of on the bolts. This reduces premature wear and extends the life of the bolts, further ensuring optimal performance.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

If you want to remount your existing wheels after installing these brakes, you'll need a kit that offers the same bolt pattern. To determine the bolt pattern, count the number of bolt holes (or lug nuts) on your trailer's wheel. This will give you the first number in the pattern. To find the second number, just measure the distance between a bolt hole and the bolt hole across from it.


diagram showing how to measure even bolt pattern

For example on wheels with an even number of bolt holes: 6 on 5-1/2" means 6 bolt holes with 5-1/2" from the center of 1 hole to the center of the hole across from it.


diagram showing how to measure odd bolt pattern

And with an odd number of bolt holes: 5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" from the center of 1 hole to the farthest edge of one of the 2 farthest bolt holes.

Video Transcript for Review of Kodiak Trailer Brakes - Dacromet 8" Hub/Rotor Disc Brakes - KOD27FR

Hi, there I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Kodiak 8-inch Hub and Rotor Disc Brake Assembly Set. This is going to allow you to upgrade your trailer from drum brakes to disc brakes so that you can take advantage of the superior performance that comes with having disc brakes on your trailer. Or if you already have disc brakes and you're wanting to upgrade to a higher quality finish, the dacromet finish on this is going to be a great upgrade for you as well. So having the two brake assemblies here is going to allow you to upgrade a single 2000-pound capacity axle. Our rotors are eight inches in diameter, and as you can see, we've got the 5 and 4.5-inch bolt pattern with these half-inch diameter wheel bolts.

So these are gonna work for your wheels that are 10 to 13 inches. The dacromet finish that I mentioned a moment ago is going to provide excellent rust and corrosion resistance. It's got a 300 to 400 hour Salt Spray rating, so it is gonna be great for your personal watercraft trailers or snowmobile trailers and if you're gonna be on those heavily treated roads, or on coastal areas where you're gonna have a lot of contact with salt and that sort of thing, this is gonna hold up really well for you. If you're looking at good, better, best, the only better option I know of is a stainless steel construction. And this is definitely gonna be better than your e-coat, or especially over your unfinished raw materials, this is gonna hold up really well for you and give you a nice long life with this system.

And if you're using your drum breaks and you're wanting to upgrade the disc brakes, these are gonna be a great option. It's going to give you superior performance, definitely going to dramatically shorten your stopping distance. We've got the ceramic brake pads here that are going to increase your stopping power. There's also a large 2.25 inch diameter stainless steel piston that provides fast, responsive braking for you. So it is gonna be a much smoother, more controlled braking experience than you're used to with your drum brakes.

So you're not gonna have that pushing and pulling like you're used to. And in addition to better performance, these are also going to require less maintenance than your drum break. So it is gonna help save you time and money. Having the one-piece hub and rotor assembly is gonna reduce the chance of water getting in there, causing uneven rotor wear. We also have the vented design here on the side that's gonna help dissipate heat faster to prevent premature brake pad wear.

And the brake pads themselves are gonna need to be replaced eventually, they'll wear down over time, but that's a pretty straightforward process and you're not gonna have the springs and all the other small components that you're used to with your drum brakes. So much fewer components to have to replace. So it is gonna help save you time and money over the long run. Now, one caveat with disc brakes is that they do require a higher line pressure than your drum brakes. So you're gonna need to make sure you have a hydraulic brake actuator and brake lines that are rated for 1500 Psi, or higher in order to activate these disc brakes. And that's gonna be pretty rare for your trailers that are currently set up for drum brakes. So it might take a little bit of doing to get everything switched over so that you have a system that's compatible with this. We do sell hydraulic brake actuators and brake lines here at etrailer.com. So if you don't already have them, you can pick them up here. Obviously, they're not included in this kit, so this isn't gonna give you everything that you need, but it is going to give you the two dacromet-plated cast iron hub and rotor assemblies with the five, half-inch, pre-installed wheel bolts on each one. We're also going to get 10 of these half-inch, zinc-plated steel lug nuts to hold your wheel in place. You'll have the two dacromet-plated cast iron calipers as well as the two dacromet-plated, ductile iron caliper mounting brackets. And these do have the four-bolt brake flange configuration. So it is gonna be very easy to get these installed on your axles with those four bolts. I do wanna point out that I've got these displayed on top just for balance sake, but when you actually go to install them, they're gonna be mounted on the side. That side support design puts all the weight on your mounting bracket instead of on the bolts. So it is going to help those bolts last longer for you. You're gonna get four of these stainless steel caliper mounting bolts to make sure that everything is held together properly. We've got our inner and outer races already installed. We're gonna get our inner and outer bearings that will fit in there, and make sure everything's rotating smoothly. This system is lubricated with grease, so you are going to get your two grease seals for the inside. And then your two easy lube grease caps for the outside. These do have the rubber plug that pops out, so you have easy access to your easy lube spindles, and you can pump grease in there in between your normal maintenance. So like I said, for those of you who are wanting to upgrade from drum breaks to disc brakes, this is gonna provide an excellent upgrade and performance. And for those of you who already have disc brakes you're looking for a higher quality finish, then this dacromet finish is gonna do a really good job for you as well. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

  • How to Determine Correct Disc Brake Hub & Rotor Kit For Boat Trailer
    There is a lot of information you'll need to know in order to get hubs, rotors, and caliper disc brake kits for your boat trailer, as we don't have a list of fits for any model year Ranger boat trailers. So you need to know your axle capacity as well as the bearing numbers. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them,...

  • Which Surge Brake Actuator Works w/ 2,000 lbs Disc Brakes?
    For a set of 2,000 lbs disc brakes, you will want to use the Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator w/ Electric Lockout item # T4745720. This is our lowest capacity disc brake actuator and even though it is rated for a 6,000 lbs trailer it will work perfectly with a lower weight.

  • Can a Surge Brake Actuator Be Used When Adding Brakes To a Small Boat Trailer?
    You simply need to ensure you use a surge brake assembly which is designed for lighter trailers. The Demco # DM62VR is rated for trailer up to 7,00lbs and Disc Brakes # KOD27FR. You will also likely need a 4-way to 5-way Adapter # C57187 for your Subaru Outback as this actuator has an electric lockout so the brakes will not activate when you back up. The Disc Brakes # KOD27FR above was designed to be used on a spindle using Bearings # L44649. If your trailer uses different size bearings...
