Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator Recommendation Grand Design 369 RL Fifth Wheel


I am looking into replacing my Electric Brakes on my RV to Elect/Hyd brakes. The RV is a Grand Design 369 RL and I believe the axles are 7000#. The Tow Vehicle is 2016 Ford with an Elect/Hyd setting so It should be compatible. What all products and part numbers are recommended?

The best electric over hydraulic actuator we carry is the HydraStar part # HBA16. We have found that it is the most reliable and has the quickest braking action. Aside from that check out the help article I attached that details the entire process of adding EOH brakes to a trailer.

You are going to need to replace the hubs to hub/rotors. For 7k disc kit the part # K2HR712E would fit your axles. These have the standard 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern that 7k axles typically have.

Or for a Dacromet coated version you would want the part # K2HR712D. This will resist corrosion better than the E-coated # K2HR712E.
