Default trailer surge brakes

I have surge brakes on my trailer for my 2400 scr I think 7000gvw and here in canada 6200 is max gvw for surge so electric over hydraulic is the best answer.So I have bought a carlisle unit to convert the surge head I think the cost to change should be around 700 .I will post photos(in the new year) when done if anyone would like see .This will be a bolt on conversion so I can change back to surge if I sell the trailer

Yeah, I'm definitely interested how the swap goes. I too have a 2400 and wouldn't mind making the upgrade, especially an easy bolt on. Pics of your process would be much appreciated.

Thanks! :hello:

Default brakes

I have some pic but don't know how to up load email me if you want them mark9@shaw.ca I also added 10 inches to the length of the reach I did weld the side plates on but you could bolt them on grade 8 bolts.the cover is just to protect from damage and I can stand on it if I need to .the tube is 3x5x.188 wall side plates are 1/4 inch welded with 7018 electrode .It should work like a dream.the last pic is first
