Default Kit to change drums to disks??

Is there such a animal? Who carries it? Have 28' Eagle tired of working on brakes every year.

You can get them at Boat US. They go on easy and work well. The kit costs about 140 bucks per axle side. There are of course other places to get them. They are alluminum calipers and stainless discs.

Check Northerntools.com they have a kit that I installed this year and loved it. Very easy to do. You will have to punch a hole in the actuator piston at the tongue and then install an electric lockout solenoid to be able to back up. Each wheel runs about 115 and the solenoide is around 45. Any questions about installing just e-mail me and I will try to help. Great addition as I was sick of drum brakes too!!!

Thanks, new weekend plan. olemiss I see you are going on the Tennessee trip. I am trying to pry myself away from work to go myself, If I can talk co rider to go. Doing the same trip first weekend in November w/Macon club. They run from Hales bar to Gunnersville Ala. though. like the idea of staying in Chattanooga each night.

jrocket, I wish I was going. Sold my boat and am now shopping for my next one. Unless something drastic happens will not have one by the TN river trip. You should come on the runs with APBc, great bunch of family oriented boat enthusiasts. If you go, talk to Chris Beck(blue concord LS-7) as after I did my trailer he put the kit on his and you could see it on his trailer.
