I suggest you get parts from the same manufacturer that was originally on your trailer to make sure they fit. At least the actuators can vary significantly in this respect. Since you have a 94 trailer I assume your brakes were by UFP. You should be able to tell by the actuator. My 93 Prostar trailer had UFP drum brakes and I upgraded to disc and replaced the actuator and lines. I got my parts from Dorsey Trailers in Oklahoma cheaper than I could get them from the UFP distributor in Tenessee and I am in Maryland. Go figure! It is not that hard of a job. One trick is the lines and either getting the right size and/or cutting them. The new brake line material I got did not cut and flare well at all. The steel cracked in the process. Plus you may need to make a coil in the line to use up extra line. I wrapped mine around a can of the desired diameter. Good luck.
