Recommended Parts To Add Hydraulic Trailer Brakes To 2014 Shorelander Trailer For 20 Pontoon

Question:

I have a 2014 Shorelander trailer for my 20 pontoon. It does not have brakes. The trailer has 10 wheels. Does eTrailer offer a brake backplate assemble for a trailer with 10 wheels? Thank you. Sure wish I could attach a picture.

Thank you for the pictures!

We do offer a trailer brake option that will work with the 10" wheels on your 2014 Shorelander Trailer.

Since the trailer will be in water you will want to use the Dexter Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit # 23-398-399 which includes both left and right assemblies and is for hydraulic brakes and will bolt the 4 bolt brake flange found on your axles that I was able to see in your picture.

Since you have 5 lug wheels you will likely need Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-2-2K which is a 5 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern and uses inner bearing # L44649 and outer bearing # L44649.

To confirm that this is the correct hub for your trailer you will need to use the included article to measure your wheel's bolt pattern, and remove one hub to read the part numbers on the inner and outer bearings of your idler hub. If you bearings are worn and unreadable use the attached diagram to measure the bearing surfaces with Digital Calipers # PTW80157. If your measurements are not 1.063" or the bearings are not marked L44649 please let me know and I can recommend the correct hub.

You will also need a few more items, hydraulic brake lines and a hydraulic brake actuator.

I recommend the Titan Brake Actuator with Manual Lockout - Bolt On - Drum # T63FR which is designed for drum brakes and uses a 2" ball. The manual lock out will allow you to back up your trailer with no electrical connections and is required since there is not a free-backing brake systems in the brake size you need.

For brake lines I recommend the HydraStar Hydraulic Brake Line Kit - Single Axle # HS496-251.

I included videos for all of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

Question:

My outer bearing is indeed L44649 but my inner bearing is larger and stamped I believe L68149. Attachment. What do you recommend? Thanks much.

Thanks for following up with your bearing information!

Since your spindles use # L44649 and # L68149 you will need the Titan 5 on 4-1/2 Complete Hub-and-Drum Assembly - Hydraulic Brakes - 8-1/2" # T1544500042 instead which includes the required bearings, races, grease seals, grease cap, and lug nuts. This hub and drum will still work with your 10" wheels.

For the brake assemblies I recommend the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit - Free Backing - 8-1/2" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,000 lbs # T4442100-000 and mounting hardware # BRKH10A.

You will still need the Brake line kit # HS496-251 previously mentioned, but since this hub allows you to use free backing brakes I recommend the Dexter DX7.5 Drop-N-Go Brake Actuator - Drum Brakes - 2" Ball - Zinc Plated - 7,500 lbs # 099-175-00 instead.

I included videos to the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
