Expert Answers about Kodiak

  • How to Remove Rusted Lug Nuts on Calkins Boat Trailer Hubs in Order to Replace Tires
  • I can suggest two methods for helping to loosen the rusted-on lug nuts on your Calkins boat trailer. The first method, which takes longer, is to apply and re-apply (as many times as necessary) a penetrating oil and allow it time to work through the rust on the threads. Depending on how severe the rust damage is this may take anywhere from hours to days. Such products are offered under a number of different brand names. They work slowly but also have less chance of causing damage. The...

  • Converting from Electric Drum Trailer Brakes to Kodiak Hydraulic Disc Trailer Brakes
  • To upgrade your car hauler to Disc Brakes will require several items. Since you are already setup with a brake controller for controlling electric brakes, the easiest way to upgrade would be to add an electric over hydraulic brake actuator to the trailer, like the Titan BrakeRite, # T4813100, for disc brakes. The pump in this actuator will be activated by the brake output circuit coming from your brake controller. If your brake controller is proportional, you will need to make sure it...

  • 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...

  • Can Regular Grease Trailer Hubs be Converted to Oil Bath Hubs
  • The choice of oil bath or regular hubs is up to the manufacturer. They are usually found on higher capacity axles, though as you know there are some on lower capacity axles. You can convert some hubs from grease to oil bath using a kit such as # XLPROLUBE1980KIT but for others it would not be possible without changing the hubs. This is because oil bath hubs use an oil cap that threads onto the end of the hub. Most regular hubs are not threaded so you would not be able to screw on an...

  • Replacement Disc Brakes for a Venture Boat Trailer for Salt Water
  • You have some common bearings there. For a combination stainless steel and dacromet which is going to offer the most corrosion resistance you can use # K2HR35DS which has the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, 1/2 inch studs, and fits 13 inch and larger wheels. For a kit that is all the same except that it is all dacromet use # K2HR35D. For E-Coat, which is basically black powder coated parts, use # K2HR35E. And for a raw finish use # K2HR35. This means no coating or paint at all and I would...

  • Disc Brake Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer That Uses 8-Lug Wheels on 6000-lb Dexter Axles
  • The key to selecting disk brakes for your 5th wheel is to match up the bolt pattern (in your case 8-on-6-1/2) as well as the brake flange mounting hole pattern, bearing set and axle weight capacity. It is fine to use a brake kit rated higher than your axle capacity, but never one rated lower. You need to match your hub's bearings to the new kit to ensure that the hub/rotor assemblies will fit your spindles. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR712 that you referenced has the bolt pattern...

  • Recommended Parts To Convert Electric Drum Brakes To Electric-Over-Hydraulic Disc Brakes
  • To convert your electric drum brakes to electric over hydraulic disc brakes, you will need disc brake assemblies, a brake line kit and an electric over hydraulic actuator. The disc brake kit I recommend with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and fit on your 7,000-lb axles I recommend part # K2HR712E. This kit has an e-coat finish to help prevent corrosion. This kit comes with 2 hub/rotor assemblies, to convert 1 trailer axle. If you are using brakes on both axles you will need 2 kits....

  • Best Disc Trailer Brake Kit for Salt Water Use on 3500 Pound Axle
  • The Kodiak disc brake kit # K2R35DS is made up of Dacromet and stainless steel components. Dacromet has a 400 to 600 hour salt spray rating while stainless steel is about as corrosion resistant as you can get. Still when using these items in a salt water environment be sure to hose them off after use with fresh water. For the absolute best in corrosion resistance go with an all stainless kit like # K2R35S. I have linked installation details for you. I have also included a link to our...

  • How to Convert Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes on a 2005 Boat Trailer
  • The Kodiak Dacromet Disc Brake Conversion Kit, item # K2HR35D, would be a good choice for conversion to disc brakes on your boat trailer. We have not had the opportunity to do a video installation for the disc brake conversion yet, but I will go through the installation with you. Before starting you will need to make some determinations to be sure you get the correct conversion kit and that you have the correct components on your trailer to work with the kit. You will need to be sure...

  • Bleeding Trailer Brakes After Installing Kodiak 225 Disc Brake Calipers
  • When you bleed the brakes on your trailer after installing the Kodiak Calipers # KDBC225E, you will want to start with the brake that is furthest away from the actuator. Of the two bleeder valves, you will want to use the bleeder valve that is on the top. If you are manually bleeding the brakes, it is easiest to use a clear jar to collect the brake fluid in so it is easier to see when there are no more bubbles in the fluid. Be sure to open the top bleeder valve when you are bleeding...

  • Parts Needed to Add Disc Brakes to Trailer with Dexter 12K Axles w/ Electric Drum Brakes
  • The Kodiak # K2R1258L12 Disc Brake Kit is compatible with a 12K Dexter axle with a 7-bolt brake mounting flange. Your current wheels/hubs should have an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. You'll also need an electric over hydraulic brake actuator, a brake line kit, a break away system and a brake controller that's compatible with electric over hydraulic brake systems. For the electric over hydraulic actuator, I'd recommend going with the Hydrastar # HBA16. Our install techs have found...

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for Lippert 7k Axles
  • The disc brake kit # K2HR712SCS that you referenced should work well for you. You would need a quantity of 2 of these for each of your axles. These have the same bolt pattern as your current setup and are rated a 7k. You can verify that these will fit your spindle by removing a current hub and checking the numbers on the bearings. If they are 25580 for the inner and 14125A for the outer this kit would fit the spindle and work well. This kit will fit a spindle that has a diameter of...

  • Recommended Parts Needed To Rebuild Tri-Axle Trailer With EOH Brakes
  • We have many of the components that will work for you but we do not carry axles that would be big enough to handle the heavy load you said your boat and trailer weigh. I recommend finding a dealer locally to get the right axle for your trailer and boat. When they build the axles for you they should also install brake mounting flanges and spindles to match the other items recommended below. Since you mentioned 8,000 lb axles, I will use that figure for my recommendations for the other...

  • How to Determine if Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2R35DKG Will Fit a Trailer
  • As long as your axle has 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern idler hubs plus a brake mounting flange the Kodiak Disc Brake kit part # K2R35DKG will fit it. Look for a plate behind the spindle with 4 bolt holes in it for the flange. As long as the hubs of your trailer take L44649/L68149 bearings the bearing kit part # BK2-100 will fit them. As long as the trailer has a 3 inch wide frame channel the Demco part # 8608611 will fit. The tandem brake line kit part # 24TA-BLKIT will work with the...

  • Do Bearings, Races, and Seals on an EZ Lube Spindle Have to be Changed and Repacked
  • It is still a good idea to periodically change out the bearings and seals in a hub even if you have an EZ Lube axle. Races can be tricky to remove as well but if other parts are worn it would be a good idea to replace them if you are replacing everything else. You will not necessarily have to repack the ones in there if they were packed properly the first time. But when you do change bearings at some point, it is a good idea to package them first, even though you will be pumping in grease...

  • Recommended Disc Brake Kit for a 2004 EZ-Loader with Tandem Dexter Axles
  • Adding a disc brake system will be a great addition to your 2004 EZ-Loader boat trailer with tandem axles. The parts you will need for this are a disc brake kit and a hydraulic disc brake actuator. I recommend the Kodiak disc brake kit # K2HR35DS because it will have stainless steel calipers and 2 corrosion resistant dacromet plated hub and rotor assemblies. Another option for you to look at is the Kodiak disc brake assembly # K1HR35S as it includes a single stainless steel rotor, stainless...

  • Disc Brakes Recommendation For 3500 Lb Boat Trailer
  • The Kodiak disc brake kit you asked about, part # K2R35DS, will fit 3500 pound axles with wheel sizes 14 inches or larger. The 10 inch rotors have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The additional 1/2 inch would mean the wheels would indeed be mounted approximately 1/4 inch further out on each axle. The existing hubs along with the bearings and races would have to be removed. You mentioned that the axle has a 4 bolt flange already welded to it. I have attached a photo of how the brake mounting...

  • What Parts Needed When Replacing Disc Brake Rotors # KHR12D on Boat Trailer
  • When replacing the disk brake rotors on your trailer it is recommended that you also replace your bearings, races and seals at the same time. This will ensure that all components are new and in good order and will prevent the need to dismantle your trailer again to replace an older part that may wear out before others. The bearing kit for this rotor is part # BK3-100. I have included an article that covers the process of replacing bearings, races and seals on a trailer hub. The Kodiak...

  • Recommended Replacement Hub Assembly For Utility Trailer
  • With the part numbers you provided for your bearings I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, part # 42655UC1. This idler hub has a 6 on 5-1/2 wheel bolt pattern and is designed for 6,000-lb trailer axles. This hub assembly comes with bearings, races, seal, grease cap, wheel bolts and lug nuts. Since you said you want to change the hub to a non-brake assembly, you will need to either replace the surge coupler or lock it out so it cannot move in or out. Since you are going...

  • Disc Brake Kit and Actuator Recommendation for a Shorelander Boat Trailer
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35D that you referenced is a great disc brake kit to use on your Shorelander boat trailer. This kit and the Titan kits are both great and you wouldn't go wrong with either, I would consider both brands to be about equal. But you will first want to verify that this kit will fit the spindles of your trailer. You will need to pull the hubs and get the bearing numbers to do this. The inner bearing will need to be L68149 and the outer will need to be L44649....

  • Can Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R35D Replace Idler Hubs on Demco Tow Dolly
  • Thank you for including a photo of your idler hubs. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit you referenced, part # K2R35D, requires a standard 4-bolt brake mounting flange in order to mount. The standard 4-bolt square mounting flange that this kit will fit, part # 4-35, is shown in the linked photo which includes measurements of the hole spacing. We do not recommend drilling your existing flanges; it is better to have a qualified welder replace them with the correct ones. Your existing hub appears to...

  • Kodiak 225 Caliper Brake Pad Recommendation
  • If your Kodiak calipers have 225 stamped on the outside between the two bleeder valves then the correct brake pads are the part # K225CP that you referenced. If you need pads with stainless steel backing plates (if your trailer gets launched in salt water you will want these) you would want part # K225CPSS.

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R1258L12 Fit 12 Dexter Axle
  • As long as your Dexter 12k axles have idler hubs installed on them Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R1258L12 is a confirmed fit that would work well. An idler hub is a hub that does not have a brake drum or rotor built into it.

Basically, all you will need to supply is the bolts that the bracket to the axle. Other than that everything else should be included.

  • What Kodiak Brake Hardware is Compatible with Tie-Down Brakes on a Load Rite Trailer
  • I have contacted the two manufacturers but I have been unable to confirm the compatibility of the rotors from one company with the calipers from the other. Depending on how tightly and for how long the original calipers have been frozen in their current position, it may be that your rotors have been damaged by scoring or corrosion. We always recommend that all braking system parts be replaced at the same time using rotors and calipers from the same manufacturer, which ensures both compatibility...

  • Dacromet Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Recommendation to Replace UFP DB35 Kit On Trailer

  • Replacement Rotors and Calipers Needed for a 2003 Mastercraft Single Axle Boat Trailer
  • To determine the correct Hub and Rotor for your 2003 Mastercraft single axle boat trailer you will need to determine what the inner and outer bearing part numbers are inside the hub, the brake mounting flange bolt pattern and the correct bolt pattern for your wheels. In my experience the Mastercraft boat trailers have an integrated hub and rotor that utilizes oil bath seals and caps. The integrated hub and rotor would need to be removed and a new hub and rotor would be needed to replace...

  • Will Kodiak Boat Buddy for Drive-On Boat Trailers - 1/2
  • The Kodiak Boat Buddy for Drive-On Boat Trailers, part # KBB2, is intended for boats of 21 feet or longer that have a 1/2-inch bow eye bolt diameter. My research shows your 2011 Lund 1875 Impact has a length of 18 feet 9 inches, which is below the recommended minimum boat length. A better fit for your boat is the original Boat Buddy, part # KBB1. This is similar but is intended for crafts up to 21 feet in length with a 3/8-inch bow eye bolt diameter, and a weight up to 3000 lbs....
