I talked to Waymires last week and they said they expected them around May 1st.

I was hoping to have mine on by now as the weather is getting nice out.

Just received today...looks good...

Accurate dimensions...much beefier looking even though the Reliable construction was ok...about 3 inches longer

Next step painting!!

Does anyone know what kind of tool to use to purge the old fluid out of the lines when you are putting one of these new actuators on, Is there some type of pump to screw on the line that disconnects from the actuator to put pressure on the line . mine had the rusty fluid/water in the resevoir so hopefully the wheel cylinders are not froze up

Motive Products makes a pressurized unit to do the UFP brakes.

Model 0130 or 0135 I believe...

www.motiveproducts.com

I will hopefully get it bolted up tomorrow. I can see that I may have to change the flexible brake line as the UFP actuator is farther forward in the head.

The flex brake line on mine was long enough to reach the reverse solenoid in the new actuator, even with the extra length.

I just got sticker shocked on the cost of paint compared to 20 years ago.

I'm doing it myself so no labor involved.

Red has always been expensive but jeez.

DuPont Imron is what the trailer came with and the cost for a quart is 274 dollars plus 140 dollars for the activator.

Even the cheaper versions are 190 dollars a quart.

I'm sure Mastercraft mixes their own and in large quantities but for a small repaint its expensive!!

I got about the same price from a body shop.

So I was thinking about going straight black or chroming it to match the stainless steel fenders.

Opinions????

I got the black DuPont MasterCraft color for mine at NCS (National Coatings and Supplies). $20 to have it mixed and put in a spray can. It took two cans to get a nice coat. So $40 plus another $15 for a can of primer. Turned out great and the color is an exact match.

We do have an NCS here in town....

I assume your trailer is black??

Chrome is out of the question as we have no place within 120 miles of here...

Went to the Sherwin-Williams place that most of the body shops go to and they have a medium quality paint that will set me back about 140 dollars (red paint, reducer, and hardener)...

30 years ago there was only one quality...high...nowadays you can get cheap to ultra-expensive

All I know is between the cost of the outer unit, plus the inner member for dual discs plus painting is getting annoying to say the least. A three year old trailer shouldn't end up like this...

The only positive out of this is I will have a brake system that will work and the chances are pretty good I will be able to get replacement parts when needed for many years to come

Yes, mine is black. E-mailed MasterCraft and got the DuPont paint code directly from them.
My last MasterCraft, '92 ProStar, had a UFP and twenty years later I was still able to get parts. Happy to be rid of the Reliable.
