Absolutely. I changed out the surge to Elec/Hyd on mine. Boat is roughly 9500 lbs. Huge improvement. Puts 1600psi of line pressure to the brakes.

Wouldn't tow a boat that size without electric over hydraulic brakes. So much better than surge.

It's awesome
needs a seperate battery for the emergency disconnect brakes
Dont criss cross the wires when reinstalling battery in the spring, it will fry the electronics..🙄
