So I've decided to upgrade the trailer brakes for my 22c and convert to disks.

I ordered Kodiak 10" SS kits plus a new actuator for disk brakes.

My question is; how long is the brake line from the trailer to the caliper?

I'd like to order new ones and the boat is not here to measure.

Thanks,
Taz

Wes, if you're gonna do it, put brakes on all 4 wheels! Here's how they're laid out:

But, to answer your question, every trailer is different! You're gonna have to measure it.

In fact, go here. You might find some useful info.
Consider new LED lights. They've never been cheaper.
And they're reallly bright.

Hey George, I tell you what, I will put disks on all four if you put tires on all four. Deal? LOL From looking at your pictures with only 2 tires on.

Lights huh? I'll check it out. I need some projects to keep me busy.

Wes, I thought it had a cool look w/2 axles, long fenders and only 2 wheels!

They sure a lot easier to maneuver when ya lose one set of wheels!

Very true! I remember my first time getting the 22 in a 3 car garage. I think I staggered the wheels to get it to turn more and it just squeaked in at an angle.

Sorry we didn't get a chance to get together when you were here. Surgeries got in the way.

And my trailer is a 2010 Integrity and has LED lights.

Cheers,

Just get raw lines and flair them yourself. Its easy and you don't have to worry about length. Plus it will be a lot nicer job.

Good idea Scott.

I need the ones that are flexible and press fit and goes between the caliper and the frame.

Wes, look at my picture again and see the two calipers are tied together using 2 flex lines
of different lengths and zip tied to the axle.
Notice there's a "TEE" in that line that is connected to the line running down the frame.
