Disc Brake Upgrade

I have been looking around at doing a disc brake upgrade to our TT. Seems the Titan kits appear to be the best. Anyone done their own on this. Any guidance will be appreciated.

We had this installed earlier this year. What an improvement and a great company to deal with.

I installed a Titan EHB pump and Kodiak disc brakes to my 2012 Dutchman Komfort. I designed my own hydraulic line runs and had to make some double flares and custom bends. I did this in July, so it took a while because of heat (Gulf Coast of AL). A week and a half. But well worth the money and effort. We took and 8500 mile trip soon after install and the disc brake system prevented two accidents that the old brakes could not have avoided. If you are a DIY guy you should have no trouble. The reason I customized the lines was the that the routing of the instructions tie up the middle of the trailer under belly. Access meant undoing the hydraulic lines to get to the underside of the unit. So I redesigned the lines to run down each side of the trailer and crossed over to meet where the pump was. Sorry to be so wordy, but the system worked great and you need to consider other alternatives to the standard instructions to meet your situation.
