Adding Electric Lockout and 5-Way to Trailer with Titan Model 60 Actuator


I recently bought this brake actuator without the electric lockout. Well, long story short, I locked up my trailer brakes this weekend and Im wanting to know if the electric lockout kit could be purchased for this model separate? Also, I have a 4 way flat on my current trailer. I believe I either have a 6 or 7 round plug on my 2018 F150. My question is: I have a detachable tongue on my trailer and along with that another male and female 4 way flat connector so the whole tongue can be removed. Can I only change the 4 way flat that attaches to my truck and leave the other two, or would I have to change the complete wiring system on the trailer to make this conversion?

To add an electric lockout to your Titan Model 60 actuator only requires the part # T4748800 and then if you wanted to add a shroud to protect the lock out you'd also need the part # T4835800183.

To activate the electric lock out you need a reverse light circuit carried to it. Typically a 5-way is needed for this to carry the extra circuit. For a 5-way you'd then want the part # W002290 which you can replace your 4-way with. For a 7-way to a 5-way adapter then you'd want the part # A75TB which will plug into the 7-way on your truck and give you a 5-way.

I am looking at a trailer with Titan 60 disk brake actuator and no electric lockout. Current owner uses wedge to lock out brakes when backing. My 2003 Tundra has only 4-pin trailer connection. I assume that's adequate and I don't need to add 7-pin connection to truck until I decide to add the electric lock-out solenoid. 76992

Correct. The 4-Way on your truck will hook up to the (I assume) 5-Way connector on the trailer - you just won't have that reverse lockout function. If you want to add it then you can just use an adapter like the Tow Ready # 20036 on the truck side. The additional blue wire would get spliced into the reverse circuit wire behind the tail lights of your Tundra. 62740
