Recommended Replacement Coupler for Atwood 83000 Surge Brake Actuator Coupler

Question:

Have an Atwood 83000. I’m not sure if that’s the right number, also has 83005, and 83010 on it. Looking for a bolt on replacement. I saw where you told some one else the Titan T43397007K would replace it. But looking for the same weights 8000lb and 1000 tongue. Also have drum brakes.

The Atwood 83000 was a 8,000 lb drum brake actuator for a 2 inch hitch ball that has been discontinued. For a replacement I recommend the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w/ Drop - Drum - Zinc - 2" Ball - 8,000 lbs # DM8669112. The only other option for that 8,000 lb capacity is a channel mount like the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator - Drum - Zinc - 8" Adjustable Channel Down - 8,000 lbs # DM8759131 which will allow you to use a coupler like the Demco Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount - eZ-Latch - Zinc - 2" Ball - 10,000 lbs # DM12688-95.

If you go to a higher capacity you can get a more similar look. I recommend using the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator - Drum - Zinc - 2" Ball - 8,600 lbs # DM8608601. This will be a higher capacity which isn't an issue and will more closely replace your Atwood coupler.
