Master cylinder for 2003 trailer

I have decided to go ahead and get a new master cylinder for my trailer. Do I have to go through a dealer to get the replacement? 2003 tandem axle trailer

No. They are readily available and is an easy DIY project.

You don't have to go to the dealer.

Do you have the reliable actuator and brakes? I've been thinking about replacing my master cylinder as well as my brakes. Let me know how it goes. I probably won't do anything until january or february.

I just did mine. It was very easy. Some tips/tricks..
Pull the entire assembly out first. The current entire assembly will tell you what it is exactly. Mine said to "replace with 34039 only" which was the part number for an A-60 with drum brakes. Yours will probably be different.
I ordered the part from http://www.pacifictrailers.com/ for only $161 shipped.
While I was waiting for the part to come, I drained the entire systems brake fluid. Be careful not to get the brake fluid on anything with paint as it may remove it.

I replaced the actuator on my former trailer (the X5) this past summer. As above, I ordered from Pacific Trailers. Undoing and attaching the flexible hose at the back of the reverse solenoid can be a pain. I pulled the swivel bolt on the swing-away tongue and rotated the whole unit as I first loosened and then tightened the hose at the fitting. Also, use a couple of 1/2" wooden dowels cut to fit to hold the rollers and mechanism in place as you slide the actuator into the tonque. Then, once the actuator is in place, just push them out as you replace them with the metal pins and attach the circlips.
