We have a pace journey single axle trailer with no brakes. My question is can we add these brakes contoller product and be ready to go with out having to buy new axles?
asked by: Tony M
The first thing you will need to check is whether or not your axle has a brake mounting flange welded to the axle. I have included a video below. At the 1 minute and 5 second mark, there is a good shot of what the brake mounting flange will most likely look like if the trailer has one. It will have 4 bolt holes spaced 2-7/8 inches apart on center.
If your trailer does not have a brake mounting flange, you will have to have one welded on by a qualified welder at a shop that does work on trailers.
Next you will need to measure your spindle to determine what kit will fit on it. Take a look at spindle # R20484, just as an example. Below the picture, you will see some measurements of the spindle. I will need to know the B, C, and D measurement of your spindle. Using dial calipers will be the most accurate tool for measuring. With this information, I will be able to find a brake kit for your trailer.
