Expert Answers about Titan

  • How to Bleed Hydraulic Surge Trailer Brakes
  • There are a couple of ways you can bleed a trailer brake system. Titan offers the following instructions, which I have also linked for you, on bleeding the brakes: Remove the master cylinder cap and fill the reservoir to three quarters full with DOT-3 brake fluid. DO NOT allow brake fluid to contact painted surfaces since it will damage the finish. Wipe up any spills immediately and wash the area with water. If you choose to manually bleed the system, an assistant makes the job easier....

  • Trailer Coupler is Stuck on Hitch Ball and Will Not Release
  • First, release the mechanism that holds the coupler onto the ball. It may be a lever or a knob that has to be turned. Some require a dual action move where you would push back or forward on the lever while lifting up on it. If you have done this and it seems to be stuck then it is most likely a binding issue. You can try moving the tow vehicle and trailer forward or backward to release the tension between the ball and coupler. Binding can occur if the trailer and tow vehicle are not...

  • Replacement Surge Brake Actuator for Discontinued 6,000 lb Atwood Coupler
  • The number 61101 isn't actually the part number, but I believe you are looking at the Atwood 84132. If this coupler is not opening enough to engage the ball, the first thing to check is the trigger lock. If it is not disengaged, the ball will not fit. If it is seized up, you will want to use some lubricant spray to try to see if you can get the mechanism to function. Unfortunately we don't have the replacement parts for that linkage as Atwood has discontinued them. If you need to...

  • Brake Kit Options for a Tow Master 80 HD Tow Dolly Without Brakes
  • The most common type of brakes found on tow dollys are electric drum brakes. This is because electric brakes are typically the more cost effective option over hydraulic brakes and electric brake systems typically require less maintenance than hydraulic braking systems. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Electric brakes are usually cheaper to install than hydraulic brakes, but you must have an electronic brake controller, like the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885, installed...

  • Converting Hydraulic Drum Trailer Brakes to Disc Brakes on a Boat Trailer
  • You could put disc brakes on just the one axle, but I recommend going ahead and installing them on both since the trailer is set up for it already. This will reduce wear and tear on both the trailer and the vehicle and a little extra expense now will end up saving you money down the road. We do have a 2 axle kit, # T4843200, that is just a little more cost than the T4843300 kit you have referenced. The main difference between these two kits is that the 2 axle kit I recommended does not...

  • Recommended Kit for Converting EZ Loader Boat Trailer Drum Brakes to Titan Disc Brakes
  • The item you selected, Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator w/ Electric Lockout, part # T4843200, is zinc coated to prevent corrosion. To prevent warping, I would recommend allowing the brakes to cool after driving a long distance before backing your boat into the water. I would recommend The Titan Disc Brake Kit, part # T4843200, for a boat trailer rather than the Galphorite Coated Assemblies. With any brake assembly, heat can remain around the bearings and can be sucked in...

  • Parts Needed To Convert Electric Drum Brakes To Hydraulic Disc Brakes On 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We do have a hydraulic disc brake kit that will fit 8 bolt hub, 8 on 6-1/2 Inch bolt pattern, 1/2 inch bolts. In addition to a hydraulic disk brake kit, you will also need a brake line kit, and a electric over hydraulic actuator, and a brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes. For a disc brake kit to replace your drum brake assembly, you will need the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, part # K2HR712, which is designed for 7,000 lb axles, 16 Inch or larger wheels....

  • Trailer Coupler Gets Stuck on the Trailer Hitch Ball
  • When a coupler gets stuck on the ball it can be because of several factors. First, if there is tension between the truck and trailer then it can cause the coupler to bind and get stuck on the ball. You can try moving slightly forward or backward to relieve the tension. If that does not release the tension enough you can also use the trailer jack to lift both the truck and trailer a little to relieve the tension which will make it easier to unlatch from around the ball. You may also...

  • Troubleshooting Ford Factory Trailer Brake Controller that Fails to Operate EOH Trailer Brakes
  • The factory integrated brake controller in your 2013 Ford F-150 does have a second operation setting for EOH trailer brakes, unlike the 2012 and earlier model year controllers. So, it SHOULD work with your Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator # T4813100 WITHOUT the adapter # T4846000. If you have access to a trailer with electric brakes you can test the controller (using its electric trailer brake setting, of course) to see if it functions correctly in that mode. If not it...

  • Recommendation for Rebuilding a Trailer Braking System on a Boat Trailer
  • First, lets start with master cylinder replacement. The recommendation you got for replacing the complete actuator, is most likely a good idea because there is a reason for the crud and such that you are finding in the master cylinder and replacing the master cylinder itself is a pretty involved undertaking. We have a video showing a master cylinder replacement that should be helpful, if you decide to go this route. Other reasons for replacing the whole actuator would be that you will have...

  • What is the Difference Between a Manual Lockout and No Lockout Brake Actuator
  • A brake actuator with a manual lockout, like part # T4500600, will have a lockout lever on the actuator that prevents the internal spring and shock from engaging the master cylinder when backing up (see photo). A no lockout brake actuator, like part # 8605001, does not have this feature, so the trailer would either need free-backing brakes or an electric lockout solenoid like part # DM11993 to keep the brakes from locking up while in reverse. Backing up a trailer with hydraulic surge...

  • Trailer Hub/Drum to Replace Damaged UFP HD-1377-10
  • We have had a customer with your same UFP hub HD-1377 successfully use as a replacement the hub/drum # AKHD-545-35-K which works on 3500-lb axles. This hub uses inner bearing # L68149 (1.378" inner diameter) and outer bearing # L44649 (1.063" inner diameter). If your original hub bearing numbers or inner diameters match this will work fine.

  • Troubleshooting Titan BrakeRite II System Pump Running but Trailer Brakes not Working
  • The issue that you are seeing may indeed be an electrical issue. I recommend checking all the connections and wiring and make sure that there are not any loose connections, or signs of damage to any of the wiring. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the Titan BrakeRite II # T4834100, and as noted in the troubleshooting section, most problems that are experienced are related to wiring issues. There are several helpful diagrams at the end of the installation instructions...

  • How Does a Reverse Lockout for Surge Brakes Wire to a Trailer
  • The wiring of the Replacement Solenoid Valve # T4748800 is ran to the reverse light circuit of the trailer's wiring connector. Basically one wire will get run to the reverse light circuit and the other wire will get grounded on the trailer frame. Doesn't matter which wire. If your trailer only has a 4-way you will need a # 20036 to convert it to a 5-way so that you can tap into your vehicle's reverse light circuit. Check out the video I attached to the right for more info.

  • Backing Up Trailer When Using Titan Model 60 Hydraulic Surge Disc Brake Actuator # T4819900
  • The Titan Model 60 Hydraulic Surge Disc Brake Actuator, part # T4819900, does not include a lockout function for backing up the trailer. Couplers are available with either electric or manual lockout, or no lockout. This particular Titan coupler does not offer this function. If you wish you can install additional components to provide this function in your coupler. You will need Titan Solenoid Valve, part # T4748800, and Titan Solenoid Shield, part # T4835800183.

  • Installing a Surge Brake Actuator on a Truck Bed Trailer Axle with Factory Drum Brakes
  • Yes, you can use a hydraulic surge brake actuator on a 3/4 ton pickup bed with factory hydraulic drum brakes. I produced a short video showing the actuator I recommend and explaining the application. You would want to use a drum brake actuator for OEM drum brakes. You will also need an electric lockout solenoid to lockout the brakes when backing because automotive brakes will apply in reverse. I recommend the Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator, # T4339720, for drum brakes which includes...

  • How to Reset the Breakaway Lever on a Titan Model 6 Trailer Brake Actuator
  • I will be happy to explain resetting the breakaway lever on the Titan Model 6 actuator, # T4747200. The manual states: Resetting the Break-away Lever: (Refer to the parts diagram in the instructions linked to the right). When the break-away lever (item 7) is engaged, it is in the vertical position. It must be reset before the trailer is moved. First, carefully loosen the pressure line fitting to the master cylinder to relieve hydraulic pressure (Figure 3). Then remove the four bolts...

  • Can a Fold-Away Trailer Tongue Hinge Kit Work with Hydraulic Surge Brakes
  • You can use a fold-away hinge kit with a surge coupler but you will need to replace the hard brake line with a flexible hose like # T0777300 that you have referenced. For fold-away drum brake applications use # T4839000. For a 3 x 4 inch tongue use 2 adapters # T4842100. For disc brakes use # T4839100 and 1 of the adapters. You would still need flexible brake line with either of these couplers.

  • What Position Should the Brake Calipers be Mounted when Installing Disc Brakes on a Boat Trailer
  • When installing the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, you will want to install the caliper mounting brackets so that the brake calipers will be on the trailing side of the axle. I posted a photo showing the proper orientation of the calipers for you. We also have a disc brake installation video that you may find very helpful when installing this kit on your trailer, see link. The parts used in the video are different, but the installation procedure will be very much the same.

  • Atwood 85778 Coupler Replacement Recommendation for Broke Latch
  • Sounds like the latch system has seen better days. We don't have a repair kit for your coupler but we can help you pick out a replacement surge coupler. With your part number we have seen customers of ours successfully go to the Titan part # T43397007K. This would be one option that would work well and has a simpler latch system that wouldn't give you the problems you have.

  • Replacement Parts for EZ Loader Trailer with DICO Model 10 Actuator & Reliable Sure Lube Hubs
  • For your EZ Loader Trailer with DICO model 10 actuator and Reliable Sure Lube Hubs, I absolutely have recommendations for you. The Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator # T2477600 is the Titan model 10 actuator that is nearly identical to the DICO model 10 you are replacing. If you want the electric lockout, you can use # T4748800 and Shield # T4836100183. For your brake assemblies, I recommend the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit - Free Backing - Galphorite # T4423500-400 and mounting bolts...

  • Comparing Uni-Servo and Free Backing Hydraulic Drum Trailer Brakes
  • If you replace the current brakes on your trailer with the same uni-servo drum brakes and no lockout actuator (like # T2351000), the brakes will deliver 20 percent braking when traveling in reverse. However, the more pressure you apply going backwards against the coupler, the more the brakes will engage so backing up the driveway will prove difficult. The Titan Free-Backing Hydraulic Trailer Brake Assembly, # T4489600, will allow you to brake in reverse using a coupler with no lockout...

  • Selecting a Disc Brake Conversion Kit for Tandem Axle Boat Trailer for Use in Salt Water

  • How to Wire an Electric Reverse Lockout on a Trailer to Work with a Vehicle that has a 4-Way Flat
  • Since you have a 4-Way flat trailer connector, you will need to add a 5-Way flat adapter, # 20036, to the vehicle and a 5-Way flat, # HM47910, on the trailer if you want the electric reverse lockout to work. On the vehicle side, the extra wire will connect to a reverse light wire. On the trailer side, the extra wire will attach to one of the wires on the solenoid. The other solenoid wire will need to be grounded to the trailer frame. I have included a link to a video showing a typical...

  • Normally Open Reverse Lockout Solenoid for Disc Trailer Brakes
  • The normally open style like # T4748800, will only prevent fluid from going back to trailer brakes when you put the vehicle in reverse. Once the vehicle is in reverse, the normally open solenoid will close and allow you to back up without the brakes engaging. On a normally open system, you will need to be careful when backing up because if you hit a curb or another object it could add even more pressure to the master cylinder and could possibly damage it. A normally closed system...

  • Parts Needed to Backup Without Putting on the Surge Brakes When Parking or Launching a Boat Trailer
  • Yes, there is a way to back up your boat trailer and keep the surge brake actuator, # T43329007K, from applying pressure to the trailer brakes. You will need an electric lockout solenoid, # T4748800, which will close when you shift the vehicle into reverse, allowing the trailer to be backed. Along with the solenoid, you will need a solenoid cover, # T4835800183, if your actuator is the model 60 actuator that you referenced. The cover will keep the solenoid from getting stepped on and...

  • Hydraulic Trailer Coupler is Locking Trailer Brakes When Trailer is in Reverse
  • Without any background information, it will be hard to say what you have going on. Have you recently replaced the coupler or master cylinder? Did the brakes previously function correctly, but are recently locking up when the vehicle is placed in reverse? Given the information available, my best guess is that either your reverse lock-out solenoid is faulty, one of its wires has become disconnected, or the signal from the reverse light circuit on the vehicle is not reaching the solenoid...

  • Adding Electric Brakes to 1999 Jayco Eagle 10-UD Pop-Up Camper Trailer
  • Jayco offered the 1999 Eagle 10-UD Pop-Up camper trailer with and without brakes, so I presume you have the version without any brakes. Typically pop-up campers are equipped with electric drum brakes, rather than hydraulic disc brakes such as the Titan kit you reviewed, part # T4843100. A first step is to review the attached article concerning adding electric drum brakes to a trailer. This covers all of the basics and required components. It is necessary that your trailer axle has...
