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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, # K2HR712 Fit a 7,000 Pound Dexter Trailer Axle
  • Yes, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, # K2HR712, will fit 7,000 pound Dexter trailer axles. It is also designed to fit 16 inch and larger wheels with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. You can check your existing bearing numbers to determine if this kit or another will fit your axle. If you have # 25580 inner bearings and # 14125A inner bearings, 16 inch or larger wheels with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern, this kit will work. The bearings and seals for this kit are sold separately, but the races...

  • Axle and Hub Recommendation for Off Road Camper Trailer
  • When it comes to building an off road camper trailer, the best configuration that I can come up with is using the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension, # ASR35HDS02, with the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, # K2HR526DKG. The heavy-duty steel construction and black powder coat finish of the axle-less system resists wear and corrosion and the rust-resistant, marine-grade, disc brake kit would be perfect for your set-up since you mention the fact of them going under water/mud on a regular basis.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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 Recommend Fifth Wheel Trailer w Outer Bearing LM67048 6 on 5-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern
  • The rotors of the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR526E that you referenced are 12 inches in diameter. Based on what you listed this kit should fit your spindles just fine. The LM67048 is the bearing you have as an outer bearing which has the same inner diameter (1.250) of the bearing that comes with this kit, 15123. This kit's bolt pattern is 6 on 5-1/2 inches like what you need and can fit with 16 inch trailer wheels. I attached a help article on adding electric over hydraulic brakes...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Complete Disc Brake Conversion System For 10,000 lb Dexter Axles
  • To replace your leaking seals, you will want the Unitized Oil Seal # 10-51. This is a confirmed fit for your hubs. I've attached a video of an oil seal installation on a similar hub to help. For your disc brake conversion, you will need to use the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly - 9,000-10,000-lb Axles - 8 on 6-1/2 - Oil Bath # 8-288-3UC1 and then the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 11" Rotor - 8 on 6-1/2 - Raw Finish - Leaf Spring - 10,000-lb Dexter # K2R1058D11E compatible with these hub assemblies...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • For your Dexter 10k torsion axles we have the Kodiak disc brake kit part # K2R1058D13. This is specifically designed to fit Dexter 10k torsion axles like what you have so it would be the exact part number you need. This will attach to the hubs you have now once you remove the drum from them. For an actuator kit that includes lines and a breakaway setup we have the part # CAR-HBA16-2 which would work well.

  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2R1058D11 Dexter 10 rated axles. They will need to be 8-288, 2 piece hub built from Feb. 1990 to Aug. 2009. Yours fits the age range so theres a strong chance this is the right kit.

  • Can Kodiak 10K Disc Brake Kit # K2R1058D11 Be Used as Replacement Disc Brake Assembly
  • The Kodiak 10K Disc Brake Kit # K2R1058D11 is intended to allow conversion of a Dexter 8-288 idler hub for use with disc brakes. It is compatible ONLY with one specific hub, the Dexter hub 8-288 built between February 1990 and August 2009. If your trailer already has disk brakes then you will be better served by installing appropriate replacement parts for your set up. If you want to let me know the bearing set used in your hubs I can help you locate suitable components.

  • 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...

It uses less electrical wires on the trailer which is great since it will come in contact will water fairly frequently. The parts that you will need are: Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - # K2HR35D Bearing Kit - # BK2-100 Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Line Kit - # 18SI-BLKIT HydraStar Marine EoH Actuator with Breakaway and 7-Way Harness - # HS381-9067 This is everything that you will need on your...

  • Recommended Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for 3500 Lbs. Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35DS is for one axle. So you would need to purchase two of them for your trailer. Kodiak does not offer a tandem axle DAC/SS kit at this time. If you need an actuator as well, you can use the HydraStar Marine Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator # HS381-9065 if you have electric over hydraulic brakes. If you have surge brakes you can use # T47154007K. These will work with Kodiak brakes and keep you from having to piece everything together. For a Kodiak...
