2005 Tandem Trailer--Brakes on One Axle

Bought my 05 X45 last year. Noticed brakes on only one axle of trailer. Needing to replace brake pads now before season gets started and figured I need to add brakes to the other axle. Not sure why there are only brakes on one axle, my other Mastercrafts had brakes on both axles with smaller boats. Maybe previous owner had issues and just removed everything rather than fixing and replacing? Anyway...

Is this the kit I need? Looks like only thing I'm missing is brake line. Axle already has the flange to bolt the caliper to. Any tips on the process?


Thanks

If you want to match your calipers I believe in 05 Reliable was using Kodiak. At least that's what they shipped me when they replaced my frozen caliper for my 03 X2 and I believe that was in 08.

I've had very good luck with the UFP products so I personally would have no issue using them but I personally would want to try to match the existing calipers if possible to reduce the number of unique parts in the brake system as a whole.

To be certain you're getting the right part I'd see if I couldn't get the axle rating and part number off the trailer or axle then call either Kodiak or UFP to make sure you get it right the first time.

http://www.waymires.com/ - This is who I've used in the past for UFP parts. A call to Pacific Trailer may work out just as well as I've heard only good things about them also.

Thanks for the help. Po must have updated the system because UFP calipers are on there now. I agree though, I will be sure to match new parts to existing.

Looks great! Where did you get those wheels, from thatsmrmastercraft?
I'm thinking about the same ones for my X-star.

Correct. Got them from Peter. Can't beat the service or price. Really like how they turned out.
