Well I'm sure the OP knows for sure.

2009/2010? was when I was considering the up-grade for our Classic. Called AS and was told the disc's were no longer being used... changed my mind.

No, my trailer has electric drum brakes.

And by the way, I've not seen hide nor hair of the Chrysler Service people who were supposed to call and come over this week. We're going to a rally leaving tomorrow, but you can bet I'll be back on the phone Monday morning.

I was at the Airstream Service Center last year and they were offering a dis brake upgrade, with a display in the lobby. I have no idea what the brand was.

Questions. Does anybody have this upgrade? Does it have the usual hydraulic trailer disc delay? Would we lose the Never Lube bearings?

I have a ProPride hitch and 2012 Ram 1500 factory brake controller with a setting for elect and elect/hydraulic. Works good with the electric brakes; I wonder how it would work with the hydraulic disc system?

Isn't the upgrade axles and all? In which case, an upgrade can include Nev-r-lube. I believe the delay is a function of the actuator. How the different brands compare....I don't know. They really all need an accumulator like old auto hydraboost systems. Then there would be no delay while the pump spools up and builds pressure.

I thought Ram was fine....until this thread?????????

Rich, Ram is fine for some of us. It's the op reporting the problem.

Drums or disc? GMs don't work with E/H until the 2014, 1500 new truck. HDs will get the ITBC/Electric/Hydraulic upgrade when the all new 2015s come out.

I have disc brakes on my 2005 and a 2013 Silverado 2500HD. I simply bolted two brake magnets to the metal box aft of the propane bottles and spliced them into the brake circuit. My 2013 2500HD thinks it is seeing an electric brake trailer and works perfectly. Much smoother braking than my former Prodigy.

Sometime first quarter 2014. Best guess at this time.
