So I got the new caliper fittings in the mail yesterday and replaced the old ones. Sure enough, everything now works! My daughter and I went for a test drive going about 40 MPH on a downhill arterial and jammed on the brakes. It felt very solid and at the end of the stop, the rear trailer wheels locked up and we saw some sweet smoke! Definitely better and general driving is great now.

I just finished up cleaning everything up on the routing and securing. I drilled out the rivets and then tapped them to 1/2" and then secured with new SS screws.

Overall Success!

So, my conclusion/lesson learned from all this......just stick with normal, auto parts store lines and use the fittings from the brake rotor/caliper supplier. I also recommend the poly line as the main run from actuator to the first tee of the system by the axles.

Completed work.....

Yea, condition. My single had all new brakes, wheels, tires and the frame powdercoated. I had also rewired everything with new led lights. Oh, and they were going to sell anyways...... Just got lucky!

Just got back from our Idaho trip.....2400 miles and it ran perfect!

After a little back and forth with eTrailer, I finally got my Fulton F2 Single wheel Jack. I will say, that the wheel was a little bigger than I thought, but once it's on, I'm sure it will be just fine.

Just got the trailer back with the plate now welded. Because the "weld on" plate was cast, the guy pre-heated the plate before welding to the frame. He also staggered it just a bit so he would be welding on top of an old weld. Looks pretty good!
