Will Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator # K71-651 work W Ram Integrated Brake Controller

Question:

Could you please tell me if the Dexstar 1600 psi actuator is compatible with a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 factory controller and if not is there one that is ? Thanks

We have found that the Dexter electric over hydraulic actuators like the # K71-651 that you referenced just don't work well with the factory integrated brake controllers like what you have in your 2013 Ram 1500. Sometimes they'll work decently, but for the most part it's pretty inconsistent so we don't recommend this actuator unless the vehicle has a brake controller specifically designed to work with EOH actuators like the P2 part # 90885.

Instead of all of that I would recommend you use the Cargo Towing Actuator part # HBA16. This actuator has proven to be a very reliable and will work with your integrated controller.
