Video Transcript for Dexter 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" Left Hand Electric Trailer Brakes Review

Today, we're going to show you Dexter Self-Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly for Left-Hand Side, part number 23-434. This is a 12-1/4" by 3-3/8" brake assembly. We'll measure the diameter across the shoes and there is 12-1/4". And we'll measure the width of the shoes and there is 3-3/8". When paired up with the right-hand side brake assembly, these brakes are good for use on trailer axles rated at 8,000 or 9,000 pounds. It uses a 4 bolt mounting pattern.

So you want to check your axle to make sure these will fit. There is a pair of wire leads that you use for your electrical connections. It doesn't matter which one you use for ground and which one you use for your power feed just as long as you have a good electrical connection. This is a self-adjusting system, meaning that when you first install the brakes, you will need to manually adjust them and set the proper tension. You'll adjust enough when there is an even amount of light drag all the way around the hub.

Once you have set up the first time, every time you back up the trailer with the brakes applied, this cable will be pulled and if some slightness is to be taken out, the star wheel will automatically be advanced. This is an electric brake assembly. So you want to make sure not to use it on boat or marine trailer applications. The way the assembly works, as the wheel and hub is spinning around and you apply brakes inside the vehicle, this magnet will be activated that will attach to the hub drum inside. As the hub drum drags on the magnet, you'll pull this arm, which in turn opens up the brake shoes and applies pressure.

We know that this is for left-hand side. We have the short shoe that needs to face the further trailer and the long shoe that will need to face towards the back. And that does it for the Dexter Self-Adjusting Electric Brake Assembly for Left-Hand Side, part number 23-434.

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


First off, Etrailer is awesome. I ordered two pairs of loaded plates and hubs on Sunday night and they were on my door step by Wednesday!.. Three issues with the plates. 1. On one plate, the two wires from the magnet were about cut in two on the back side of the plate right as they come out of the plastic retainer. Must be getting pinched somehow in shipping. 2. Both left plates had lubriplate grease where the brake pads rub the backing plate and at all pivot points. Neither of the right side ones did, requiring disassembly of the new plates to grease the spots that should have been. (Somebody had a bad day on the assembly line!). 3. Product information led me to believe that new backing plate nuts would be included. They were not, but new lug nuts were included with the wheel bearing kits. Only thing that I would suggest to Etrailer would be to carry replacement lock tabs for the bearings. Other than that, a couple of hours and brand new brakes & hubs all around. They are working great! Thanks Etrailer for the great products, prices & shipping! Steve 21416

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


Used these electric brake assemblies to replace the hydraulic units which became useless due to the master cylinder in the coupler becoming rusted and frozen up. Everything about the units was top notch and they bolted directly in place of the hydraulic backing plates. Shipping was fast with detailed follow up provided by Etrailer (probably the best of any internet company I've dealt with.) Packaging was more than enough with more packing material and staples than was really required. ( 15 staples in the box ends alone where 5 would have been more than enough) Unfortunately, the assemblies were "nested" back to front into one another which caused the brake shoe of one unit to cut off the wire leads of the other. "Back to back" or "front to front" would have solved this issue which has happened to other customers. Additionally, the one plate had dust plugs for the brake adjuster provided while the other one had none. Both of these problems were minor but kept the experience from being totally outstanding. 82912

E-trailer is a great company to deal with. The electric brake assemblies were exactly the same are the original which insured installation was smooth and easy. Support after the sale is unsurpassed. They follow-up after the sale with instructional video clips to insure there are no "hiccups". After installation of the new brakes, I road tested and calibrated the controller (a device that I previously purchased from E-trailer). E-trailer was referred to me by a friend. I will definitely use them again and will not hesitate to refer them to others. Lastly the assemblies are American made and the shipping was free, could not improve on service, product or value. Thanks 29269

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


I received my product in very timely manner but it was damaged and not usualbe due to the wires being crushed and bare wires exposed plus some of the brake componets had dislodged in shippment. etrailer was very quick to remedy the problem by sending another shippment the next day and it arrived in mostly good condition due to some more componets being dislodged again in shipping but I was able to put them back in place and the brake assembly is now in great condition. I also ordered a set of bearing and seals for my application and they arrived in very good condition and now I am ready to reassemble my Travel Trailer and hit the road again. These heavy items (the brake assemblies) do need more vigirous shipping measures to prevent the problems I had with my order. I will gladly use etrailer again and will recomend them to my friends. 46084

This was not the first time I have purchased from "etrailer.com". The first time being several years ago. I purchase may products on line and honestly this company/source for the products they offer and the prices, processing, shipping and support they provide is very honestly as good as I have ever encountered. Their staff are completely helpful and "KNOW" the products they sell. I have my own RV and have hauled/delivered RV's Commercally for years, through out the lower 48, Canada and Alaska. No, I don't write reviews very often and only after I have honest experiences with the sources that enable me to evaluate them, good or bad. 31057

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


Great deal! Only cost a few dollars more to replace the backing plate and components than to purchase new shoes. If you're debating whether to replace just the shoes, or the whole backing plate I'd recommend you replace the whole backing plate. It's far easier (4 nuts vs 3 springs and more), and ensures that everything is in good working order. One caveaut, however: it's not easy to replace backing plates when the nuts are severely rusted (in my case, it took cutting most of them off). FYI, I'm using these with drums marked "8-249-07" NOTE: You'll need (4) 7/16-20 nuts if you're not planning on using the originals. Bolts are included. 30304

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


Ordered my parts on Tuesday... showed up on Thursday! Awesome delivery time. Read the reviews for the 7" brakes I needed to replace on my popup camper, and several folks said to make sure to order the bolts, nuts and washers - since the etrailer replacements didn't come with them. The 7" brakes DO infact come with the pressed-in bolt studs already in place, the only thing extra you'll need to get would be the nuts and lock washers if you don't already have them. Installation is as simple as bolting them on and crimp connecting two wires. I'll make final adjustments to the brake controller once everything is back in place. 55385

I have a dual axle race car trailer which had only single axle brakes. I ordered the left and right 10" brake assemblies and matching hub and drum assemblies. I also needed a magnet for the existing brakes. The box arrived a little worse for wear, no fault of etrailer, but all the pieces I had ordered were there and in fine shape. The order arrived sooner than I had expected and the follow-up by etrailer, checking to make I was satisfied and to provide helpful links to related information, was truly appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend and expect to buy from etrailer again. 35396

Unfortunately, one of the 4 brakes came with the spring and adjuster shaft on the bottom of the box. I put them back on without too much trouble but etrailer should review the product packaging in order to protect the brakes from damage. The install needs shrink tubing style crimp connectors. Mine required sizes for 16 to 18 gage and one size up for joining 3 wires where one wire crosses over thru the axel from the left to the right side. Also there are two adjuster plugs per brake so a total of 8 plugs are required for 4 brakes. Once installed they worked great. 151310

I was very pleased with the service I recieved and proptness of the delivery of my parts. Amanda was great at getting the 4 brake assemblys out to me so that I had enough time to get them replaced before our big trip. Your web site on trouble shooting helped out on trouble shooting that it was in the brake magnets. I had one magnet that had the brakes hanging do to high ohms reading. being able to buy the whole assemblys from E-trailer made it very easy to do the change and saved a great amount of time for me.

Product was as advertised. Form, fit and function were excellant. Assembly was a breeze, especially with the non-polarity of the wires. Just bolt them on, plug them in, adjust them, and go. Recommend buyers also purchase the 4 nuts that hold each backing plate onto the trailer's mounting flange. They do not come with the assemblies, and 7/16 x 20 (fine thread) nuts are getting difficult to come by. I went to my local Lowes to purchase 16 nuts and lock washers for the 4 assemblies I purchased.. They only had 17 nuts in the entire store. 42572

I was just going to replace the shoes but after remembering the difficaulty in doing drum brakes in the early days, I found it easier and less time consuming by just remove 5 bolts and connect two wires. This product came to my door with in only 3 days. Great looking product (no picture because i"m writing this after the install).

An unbeatable value over buying any single or multiple parts of the brake system for trailers. Everything being assembled and properly lubed by the factory makes this a no-brainer for doing any brake maintenance. Without knowing any of the prior history of the new-to-me trailer, I have more confidence now knowing that I have good brakes backing me up. I would highly recommend this assembly over just getting individual parts. I was also happy to see the "Made in the USA" sticker inside each brake assembly! 41254

The product was as advertised or better and shipping was great. They showed up sooner then I expected and just ahead of a nasty storm with heavy snow and high winds which I was afraid was going to delay the shipment until the following week- Kudos to UPS! Was able to track them all the way. Didnt get any pictures but they were an easy bolt on- much better than replacing the brake shoes and magnet separately.

Easy installation. Except for the way you run the wires through the backing plate. One wire was cut in half and the other one was bare wire. Also one of the adjusters fell out during shipping. It took a little extra time to repair the wire since there is not much room. A little aggravating but not insurmountable. Possibly during shipping the wires get squeezed pretty hard at the backing plate. You might want to address this problem.. 16712

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


The 23-47 brakes are an excellent replacement on my 1997 Coleman Fleetwood Bayports popup camper that I am close to finishing a restoration process on. They fit perfectly! Very happy to purchase an excellent product from the fastest shipper I have ever come across. I am blown away by the professionalism with this company! Thanks 142957

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


great product......speedy delivery....and best of all stamped "Made in USA "(a rare commodity these days)....A strong reason influencing my purchase. Only wish I could have said the same for the replacement bearings and races I also purchased from your company. (Keep America working-buy USA) Excellent customer service! 25853

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


I was replacing the brakes on a 72 Airstream Argosy and needed a magnet but found out I could get whole new assemblies for $2.00 more! That's a deal! Just make sure if your backing plates have attached studs that you pick up the necessary grade 5 or 8 bolts, nuts and lock washers too. 56529

Review from a similar Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly


I purchached these brakes to convert from hydraulic surge brakes on my 1973 pop-up camper. It was a simple, bolt on conversion that took only a few hours to complete; including wiring. One week later, they performed flawlessly on the 400 mile trip to hunting camp. Thanks e-trailer for a great product and service. 59443

  • Need Brake Assembly For Dexter Trailer Hub And Drum - 8,000 lbs Axles - 8 on 6-1/2, # 8-218-9,
  • You mentioned a 12-1/2 inch drum, but Dexter only list a 12-1/4 inch X 3-3/8 inch drum. The parts that I am recommending are for the Dexter Hub and Drum, # 8-218-9, which is the 12-1/4 inch X 3-3/8 inch drum. I have the complete brake assemblies for the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum - 8,000 lbs Axles - 8 on 6-1/2, # 8-218-9. The complete assemblies would contain the magnets, actuating arms, brake shoes and springs and cast backing plate. If you have the 4 bolt flange the brake assemblies...

  • Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 1983 Hayes Axle with a 9,000 lb Capacity
  • The Hayes/AL-KO 12 inch Electric Brake Assembly # 185100 that you referenced is designed to fit on the standard 4 bolt pattern for brake assemblies and should bolt right up to your 1983 Hayes axle as long as it also is the standard 4 bolt pattern. Magnets do come in various sizes and varying strengths. It is recommended that you replace brake assemblies in pairs so that you have even braking on both sides. Since you have 9,000 lb axles you may be interested in purchasing brake assemblies...

  • Trailer Brake Assemblies for 12 X 3-3/8 inch Brakes with 4 Mounting Holes on a 1991 Kountry Aire
  • I checked with my contact at our supplier and found that the axles on your trailer are one of two brands. With the 4 bolt pattern they are either Hayes/AL-KO, 8,000 lb. axles with 12 by 3-3/8 inch brake assemblies or they are Dexter 10,000 lb. axles with 12-1/4 by 3-3/8 inch brake assemblies. If your brake assemblies are the 12-1/4 by 3-3/8 inch assemblies and you have the Dexter 10,000 lb. axles then you can use the # 23-434 and # 23-435 assemblies to replace your trailer brake assemblies....
