In short, when your vehicle brakes are applied, the Surge Actuator compresses because of the forward "surge" created, which applies pressure to the hydraulic fluid, forcing it through the brake lines to the calipers, which compress on the brake rotors, and slow down your trailer. This process is extremely effective, and the most efficient way to have brakes on your boat trailer. This system will outfit Leaf Spring Axles and Torsion Axles.
What makes this kit we have put together so unique, are the components included. We have included a Surge Actuator, Stainless Steel Mounting Bolts, Kodiak DOT Rated Flexible Brake Hoses, and Kodiak Brand Disc Brakes.
