Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic
Drum Brake Actuator
We dont just Sell Trailer parts like these, we install them Every Day! You have questions- ask us! You have problems with installation, you can call us for help!
This a GENUINE DEXTER brand Hydraulic pump to activate Drum type brakes (we have the DISC brake model too, just ask!). It works with your existing Electronic brake controller (most of them anyway) taking that electric signal and converting it to hydraulic brake pressure. Braking power is MUCH greater than electric or Surge Hydraulic. You can actually stop, unlike electric brakes on bigger trailers, you will be amazed at the difference, the greater feeling of security you get while towing!
Use this pump to Convert your old Surge Brakes, or the old Vacuum over hydraulic system to this new reliable brake actuator. Your drum brakes will work with the new pump, so you don't have to change anything on the axles!
If you have electric brakes, and are disappointed in the stopping power they
have (or lack of!) then you should be able to simply swap in new brake backing plates, your old drums and bearings should work.

DEXTER Electro/Hydraulic Drum brake actuator is compatible with all vehicle electric connectors and works with most in-cab controllers. Electro/Hydraulic brake actuator provides 1000 psi of pressure for 1-3 axles equipped with drum brakes. Brake fluid pressure is proportional to the electronic brake controller signal. Sealed, anodized aluminum housing provides a weather tight seal.
***The unit turns off at night. in order to re-awaken the unit in the morning, the customer must apply the trailer brakes using the brake controller in the truck, perhaps twice (once should work, but twice for sure)
Disconnect power from the unit, and reconnect to power.
