Expert Answers about Kodiak

  • 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...

  • Switching from Electric Drum Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes on Trailer w/7K Lippert Axles
  • I did some checking and your 7K Lippert axles use inner bearing 25580 and outer bearing 14125. We have 7K brake kit options that use these same bearings and have the same 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern as your existing hubs. The most basic kit is # K2HR712. The parts have a raw finish which means no corrosion resistance. The next step up from there is # K2HR712E which has an e-coat finish which is like a powder coat and offers minimal corrosion resistance. What I recommend is the next step...

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation to fit 7,000 lb Dexter Axles
  • For your Dexter 7k axles the Kodiak Kit part # K2HR712D would fit and work well. Your EZ lube grease caps from your current hubs will fit the hub/rotors and for bearings you would need # 25580 and # 14125A and then for the seal you would want the part # RG06-070.

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade From 7K to 8K Axle and Convert to Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • In order to change from an 7,000 pound axle to an 8,000 pound axle you will need to replace the entire axle with an 8K model. You will not be able to add any parts to your current axle to upgrade it to an 8,000 pound capacity. We do not currently have any 8,000 pound axles available but you will want to find one that features the same hub face and spring center length to what you currently have. Then in order to convert from electric drum brakes to electric over hydraulic disc brakes...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Hub and Rotor Assembly with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern for 3,500 Pound Trailer Axle
  • From my research the hub and rotor assembly you're looking for is for a 3,500 pound axle with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. It uses bearings # L68149 and # L44649 and has a Dacromet finish for marine use. If the bearing numbers match you can use # KHR10D for a replacement hub and rotor. The bearing kit that goes with it is # BK2-100

  • How to Determine the Correct Oil Bath Cap
  • To figure out the correct oil bath cap, you will need to know your axle's capacity or size of your hub bore. For a 3,500 lb hub or 1.98" hub bore you would use Kodiak XL ProLube Oil Bath Hub Body and Cap # XLPROLUBE1980, or for the kit you would use # XLPROLUBE1980KIT. If your axle had a capacity of 5,200 lbs or 6,000 lbs, or 2.44" hub bore you would want Kodiak XL ProLube Oil Bath Hub Body and Cap # XLPROLUBE2440 or if you wanted the kit you would use # XLPROLUBE2440KIT. I've added...

  • 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....

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for Boat Trailer with 6k Axles
  • Based on what you listed as having on your trailer axle the Kodiak Disc brake kit part # K2HR526D that you listed would be the correct kit. Since you said saltwater you might be more interested in the kit that has stainless steel rotors, calipers, and mounting brackets # K2HR526DS. You'll need to swap to a disc braker compatible surge brake actuator as well though since they require higher psi ratings than drum. For that the surge brake actuator part # T4750720 would work great as 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...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Trailer with 7,000 Pound Axles from Drum Brakes to Hydraulic Disc Brakes
  • An excellent brake kit for your 7,000 pound axles is the Kodiak # K2HR712. You'll need inner bearing # 25580 and outer # 14125A. Also seal # RG06-070. These disc brakes have a raw finish and an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. Since you have a tandem axle trailer, # T4830000 will be the brake line kit for you. If you're going to install electric over hydraulic brakes, the HydraStar # HBA16 is a what we recommend for an actuator. If your brakes will be just hydraulic disc brakes, then use...

  • Parts Needed to Convert 2008 Inferno Toyhauler to Disc Brakes
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E fits your Lippert 6k axles and has the 8 lug bolt pattern like you need so it would be exactly what you'd want. You'd need a set for each axle. For bearings you'll need part # 25580 and # 02475 for each assembly plus the seal # RG06-070 for each assembly. For a triple-axle disc brake trailer you will want a 1600-psi electric-over-hydraulic actuator to ensure sufficient operating pressure. We offer a nice kit from CTS, the HydraStar Marine Electric...

The rebuild kit will require you have a 5/16" Allen wrench or 1/2" hex tool and comes with the following parts, which are numbered on the diagram so you can see exactly where they go on the caliper. - Replacement Stainless Steel Piston # K225PS...

  • Replacement Dexter Brake Line 18018-SF Options
  • If you wanted an exact replacement for the hose you have we do have the part # 18018-SF available that would work well for you. That being said the part # BH-3MFS90FF-1-5 you referenced has the same fitting size on both ends of 3/8-24 so it would also work for you. It's also the same 18 inches in length.

  • Using Surge Brake Actuator on Trailer with Fold-Away Coupler Hinge
  • If your trailer is equipped with a fold-away coupler hinge like # FHDPB330301 then you can still use a surge brake actuator like the excellent Titan Zinc-Plated # T47154107K. The only thing you will want to add is a flexible brake line across the hinge like the Titan # T0776500 to accommodate this function. Please note that the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35D referenced in your question includes rotor-and-hub assemblies, calipers, mounting brackets, and mounting bolts but it does not...

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2R1258L12 Fit a 12K Rockwell Axle on PJ Trailer
  • I am assuming that one of the axles has brakes and the other does not. If that is the case and the axle that does not have brakes has idler hubs then you can use Kodiak kit # K2R1258L12 provided that the hub has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and brake mounting flanges on the axle. You will also need some addition brake line and related parts such as what is included in kit # 15SI-BLKIT. Or it may be more beneficial to go ahead and replace all the lines with a tandem axle kit # 24TA-BLKIT.

  • Can Dot 5 Brake Fluid Be Used with Rebuilt Kodiak 225 Brake Calipers?
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # KDBC225S and similar finishes will require the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Rebuild Kit for 3,500 lb to 6,000 lb Trailer Brakes # KDBC225KIT which will give you all the seals, bolts, bushings, and piston needed. Once rebuilt the system can use Dot 5 brake fluid but only after removing all previous fluid and flushing the system. Dot 5 is not compatible with Dot 3 or 4 so a complete flush or new parts are required. I also recommend...

  • Changing Brakes from Hydraulic to Electric over Hydraulic on a Boat Trailer
  • There are 2 ways to actuate hydraulic brakes; by either using a surge brake actuator coupler or an electric over hydraulic actuator. A surge brake actuator coupler actuates the brakes by mechanically compressing the master cylinder inside the actuator and applying pressure to the brakes. An electric over hydraulic actuator does the same thing, except it uses the electrical pulse from a brake controller to tell the electric over hydraulic actuator pump when to apply the pressure. If you...

  • Will Dexter 5.2K Idler Hub Fit with Kodiak 12" Disc Brake Kit
  • Yes, the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 8-213-5UC1-EZ is compatible with the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R526D. I actually don't think that the placement of your wheel/tire will be that much different than when you are using hub and drum assemblies. I went out to the warehouse and found that the idler hub measures 2.095" from the back of the hub to where the rotor will sit and the rotor is 0.3065" thick meaning that your wheel will mount about 2.4015" from where the back of the hub (or...

  • Disc Brake Kit with 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern for 7,000 Pound Axle
  • Since you have 6 lugs it's very possible you have 6,000 pound axles. But either way you can upgrade to an 8 lug for 7,000 pound axles. You'll need to replace the bearings, races, and seals to match the new sized hubs. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR712E with Bearing Kit # BK3-200 will work great on your trailer. These have an e-coat finish to help prevent corrosion from the elements. If you don't already have disc brakes you're also going to need an electric over hydraulic actuator...

  • Custom Gooseneck on Aluminum Flatbed and Adding Anti-lock Disc Brakes to 40 Foot Triple Axle Trailer
  • When customizing the brackets needed for the # BWGNRC800 to install to your 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 HD Flat Bed Crew Cab with dually chassis truck frame, you ideally want to be just slightly in front of your rear axle. Anywhere from 1 to 3 inches in front is best and what is done for the custom bracket kits where available. The system will ideally be flush with the top of the frame so the gooseneck ring holding the ball will actually sit just slightly above the rails (to protrude above...

  • 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...

  • How To Manage Excess Hydraulic Brake Hose Length on Boat Trailer
  • Thanks for the photos of your trailer! To manage the excess length of the Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Hose # bh-3mgs-18 you can certainly coil up the excess and secure it with a zip tie. Another option is to route the hose along the trailer so that the excess line is used. However you choose to secure the excess hose, keep in mind that you will want to ensure that the hose does not hang down below the trailer's frame. If you find that a shorter amount of hose can be used, Kodiak also offers...

  • Needing Replacement Disc Brake Pads of 7,000 Lbs Axles
  • The Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads, # K250CP or # K250CP-SS, that you referenced can both be used to replace your current brake pads on your trailer's axles. The difference between the two is the # K250CP-SS disc brake pads have stainless steel backs. The stainless steel backs will provide resistance to corrosion and rust, especially in marine applications. The pads on both sets are made of a ceramic material the is designed to last longer than your traditional organic pads and the semi-metallic...

  • Replacement 250-031468 Seals Needed for Reliable Oil Bath

This seal has a 1.72" inner diameter and a 2.56" outside diameter. You can use these specs to ensure that it fits your application. I am unsure about the screw you mentioned because none of our kits have that screw, they just use rubber plugs similar to what you would see on an EZ Lube grease cap. If you are needing to...
