Disc Brakes
 
Well today I had Ron AKA Titan Guy install a new set of Titan Hydraulic Disk Brakes on my trailer. I have changed a lot of brakes , drum and disc over the years and from what I see Titan has a very quality product they are selling. Their hydraulic system puts out more pressure than all the rest on the market. Which relates to shorter stopping distance. Their pricing is as good or better than all the competitors I checked out. The service I received by Ron was fantastic. He went out of his way to have a RV Tech come out and do the exchange at the Park where my Trailer is. They were very professional and went above and beyond the job they had at hand. Very proffesional and on time.If anyone is looking to upgrade to a disc brake system get a hold of Ron at Titan. You won't be sorry.
Thanks again Ron for the outstanding service and install

Thanks for the comment Shane! I'm looking at doing the conversion, I have met Ron and will have him arrange for the conversion when we are in the south again.

if you haven't inspected your brakes (especially drum brakes) you need to do so as they are apparently still using the same cheap seals since day one despite all of us that they reimbursed/paid to have replaced.

The May issue of Trailer Life has an excellent article on the Titan Disk brake systems. It even takes you through a step by step installation process.:)

Rick, you must have print copy. It is not showing up on the online version.
Interesting, I didn't even know they were evaluating our system.

Ron, just received it in the mail yesterday. You probably need to get ready for increased sales since the word is out. I'm still debating if I can do it myself. The article was excellent except it didn't detail the wiring hookup to the battery and the emergency brake switch. It even has great pictures.:)

The only question is, are you physically capable. A 7k Integrated Hub/Rotor weighs 37 lbs. That is the heaviest part. The more difficult part is laying on your back running brake line. This part really needs to be done on a hard surface so you can use a creeper. Installation is a 8-10 hr job. So at $100 hr for a shop to install, there are a lot of us who can do the work and save the $1000. I have put together a COMPLETE installation kit that includes all wire, connectors, looms, clamps, bolts and self tappers to complete an install.
The last kit took the customer abt 12 hours over 3 days. Day 1 he mounted, wired and tested the actuator in 3 hrs. Day 2 he removed old brakes and installed new disc brakes in 4 hrs. Day 3 he installed & bled the brake lines. Tested the system unhooked and hooked to TV in 5 hrs.

I can handle the physical part of it and the Redwood is kept in storage on concrete. My issue so far is the wiring of the actuator. Time is not an issue. I spent about 5 days installing my own air bags and then took it to the shop that had installed them on my prior truck and they offered me a job. Of course I was laying flat on my back on concrete without lifting the truck so I would only work a couple of hours a day. Does the kit include necessary bearings and seals?:)
