I ordered these brakes on Tuesday they arrived at my house (in southeast Texas) on Friday (free shipping). These brakes heavy duty and a breeze to install. I paid twice as much for brakes I had bought before, locally. Good job ETrailer!!!!

I bought 2 sets of 12x2 electric brake assembly for my car hauler. 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).
I have been back to etrailer several time for other items such as hitch shank, wheel center caps even grease caps. Great place to shop.

Just to say the products are great well made

EXCELLENT...... START TO FINISH. Fantastic service, great prices, quality products. Here's a before and after picture. It only took 30 minutes and basic tools to make the replacement. So much better than trying to clean up the old rusty one. Thanks again, Bill Borland in Michigan




by:

Brakes were a perfect match for my camper and a simple bolt up. Thank you Anthony W. For making sure I got the right parts




by:

This product was good




by:

The new brakes work well on my trailer. However, when I replace them next time I will spend the extra $$ to get the self adjusting version.




by:

Jim, it was a pleasure to talk. You went over and above to look at what was needed to fill my needs. Delivery was great as always. Look forward to future orders




by:

Everything went well with the installation. Working with etrailer made things happen. Thanks etrailer.




by:

Brakes arrived very quickly and looked very good. One spring and adjustment rod came off during shipping, but the pieces were there and easily installed. I haven't installed them yet, but am very happy with product at this point.


Comments
am still very pleased with these brakes. They have performed great with no problems to date.

I am writing this very favorable review of my online shopping experience with etrailer. Recently I had to replace the brakes, hubs, wheels and tires on my travel trailer. Please keep in mind that I am a 65 year old man without a lot of experience with online shopping. Never-the-less, I decided to give it a try in hopes of saving some money. To my surprise, etrailer made the experience very easy and painless. Before I placed my order on line, I had a question about one of the items on my shopping list, so I placed a call to them. I spoke with a very lovely and patient Customer Service Representative by the name of Michelle S. She was very helpful in answering my questions and encouraged me to call her back directly when I was ready to place my order; and so I did. During the shipping process, she kept me informed through emails the status of my order and everything arrived on time and in great shape. I truly appreciate the personalized services I received doing business with etrailer. They truly removed all of the uncertainty and nervousness of shopping online.




by:

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.




by:

The right and left hand brake were very easy to install and came with everything needed. The only problem after install, is that the left hand break gave off a buzzing sound while brakes were not engaged...adjusting the arm as suggested by your technicians to the electric magnet did not help...there was little engagement from magnet to drum while brake were not engaged, that i decided to go the 8k miles anyway, checking every night stop...it still has the buzzing sound and I will need to replace.

I had bought a used Hallmark 24' cargo trailer. Got around to repacking the bearings and one brake assembly had just come apart. Electric brakes and one lead was gone so I order this item. Arrived in a timely manner. Installed backing plate/brakes and hub in about 15 minutes. Attached electric brake leads and everything looks great. I have not figured out how to test the electric brakes.

  • Which Brake Drum is Used with Dexter # 23-105 and # 23-106 Brake Assemblies
    There are hubs/drums available for the # 23-105 and # 23-106 brake assemblies. You'll want to go with a 12 x 2 drum, and you'll want to choose one that has bearing compatible with your existing spindle and a lug and bolt circle pattern that's compatible with your existing wheels. If you'd care to reply with your inner and outer bearing reference numbers and the number of lugs and the bolt circle of your wheels, I'd be happy to make specific recommendations.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Connected to Trailer
    Sounds like you have a short between the 12 volt accessory circuit of the trailer wiring and the brake output circuit that developed over time. Typically to fix this you need to trace the wiring of the trailer from the connector back to the trailer brake assemblies and fix any exposed wire. It can also be caused by corrosion in the 7-way connector as well so you might check for that and fix as needed too. I attached a help article on troubleshooting brake controller installs for you to...

  • Which Trailer Brake Magnet Connects Where
    As long as one wire of the # 23-106 brake assembly is connected to the brake circuit and the other is securely grounded to the trailer frame, you're good. It doesn't matter which of the two wires is connected where as they're not polarity-sensitive. I've linked to a video showing a typical brake assembly installation.

  • How to Determine if Trailer 7-Way is Upside Down for Determining Pin Out
    I attached a picture of a 7-way wiring diagram for you to check out to help show you where all of the pins of the connector are. If your 7-way is upside then yes the diagram would need to rotate 180 degrees. You can use the notch of the 7-way to determine if this the case. The square notch is normally on top of the connector so if yours is on the bottom then it is inverted.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locked When Connected to Truck
    There is an issue with the 7-way that is causing the brakes to stay on all the time and it sounds like the trailer brakes are wired to the 12 volt pin. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see how your trailer's 7-way should be pinned. If yours is different and from your description it sounds like that is the case, you will need to re-wire your connector so it is compatible with your tow vehicle's pins.

  • Troubleshooting SC Error Code on Integrated Brake Controller of 2011 Dodge Ram 3500
    The SC code displayed on an integrated brake controller of a 2011 Ram 3500 indicates that you have a shorted output circuit on the brake controller wiring. If the code shows all the time then the issue is on the truck side of the wiring. If it's only when a trailer is connected the short is on the trailer wiring. Either way you'll need to trace the output circuit for the trailer brakes to find any cut or exposed wire and fix as needed to get rid of the short. I attached a help article...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Assemblies Not Holding Voltage from Brake Controller
    Most likely the voltage drop you are experiencing is being caused by something inside the trailer brake assemblies themselves. Since full voltage is making its way back to the assemblies (just not staying there) we can probably rule out the actual wiring on the trailer between the assemblies and the 7-Way connector. I recommend pulling your hubs and checking the brake magnets for wear. If you can visually see the copper windings beginning to show through the friction surface then they...

  • Warning Signs for Trailer Brakes Starting to Fail
    If the braking power starts to fade or get weaker that would be the best indicator that the brakes are on their way out. Typically as long as the brakes are seemingly working fine you are good. You can periodically check the pad thickness of the shoes to see if they are wearing out if you want to be super cautious but in most cases its a "if it ain't broke don't fix it", type situation. If you feel the hub getting really hot at any point thats an indicator that the hub bearings are failed...

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up
    Trailer brakes that lock up can be related to several problems. If they lock up when the trailer connected is connected that would indicate that the 12 volt accessory circuit is shorting out to the brake output circuit on the trailer which is causing the brakes to lock up. You would want to check the wiring and trailer connectors of both the vehicle and trailer looking for any obvious signs of shorts such as cut or exposed wire, or corrosion and fix as necessary. Or if you have a 6-way...

  • Why Would One New Brake Assembly Get Hotter than The Others
    How much hotter is the one assembly getting than the others? If you jack the trailer up in the air and turn all of the wheels by hand is there roughly the same amount of drag on all of them? If the hotter wheel has more drag than the other the issue is that it's adjusted too tightly. I have included a link to a video and at about the 4:39 mark our installed begins adjusting the brakes.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locking When Brake Pedal is Applied
    It sounds like your brake controller either needs adjusting the gain for your brake pedal or there is an internal issue with your brake controller and it needs replaced. If it were a wiring issue then the manual brake override would not work the way you are describing. I've attached an article to help with testing your brake controller, but it sounds like if basic gain control isn't the issue then replacement is the next step. I've linked the page to all your options for your 2007...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes Lock Up On One Side
    If just one of your electric brakes is locking up, and it isn't a short, the issue is likely with the suspension of your trailer. There could be an issue with the hubs or spindle being damaged so you will want to remove your hub and check it for damage, then check the bearings and spindle to make sure there are no issues in that regard. It is likely this is the problem so you will need to replace the hub. You can do this by taking a look at the bearing numbers on the actual bearings and...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Trailer Wiring is Connected
    There must be a short on your trailer's wire between the 12 volt accessory circuit you mentioned testing and the brake output circuit. Start at the back of the trailer connector and work your way back to the brake assemblies looking for any obvious shorts like exposed or cut wire and fix as needed. I attached a help article on trailer wiring troubleshooting for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Check Brake Wiring Error Code on Brake Controller Still After Replacing Wiring
    What type of brakes does this trailer have? If drum did you happen to check the brake magnets in the hubs? It's very possible you have a bad magnet with exposed windings giving your brake controller circuit a short. I attached a help article on how to troubleshoot this but it's probably best to pull the hubs off and inspect.

  • Troubleshooting Intermittent Electric Brake Connection
    It sounds like there is a loose connection somewhere since the issue only happens when you accelerate. The first step I would take would be to inspect the grounds on the trailer. Check the ground for the trailer connector and the grounds for the brake magnets. Make sure they are free of corrosion and secured to a clean bare surface on the trailer frame. If the trailer has a poor ground connection, then it may try to ground through the trailer ball, which could explain why the connection...

  • Trailer Brakes Actuate Immediately When Trailer is Plugged in to Vehicle
    I have a suspicion about what might be causing the problem you mention. Do your trucks have 6-way trailer connectors? Or, do the trucks have 7-way connectors, but you are using a 6-way to 7-way adapters because the trailers use 6-way connectors? There are two accepted ways of wiring a 6-way trailer connector. One uses the center pin as the brake voltage output circuit, the other uses the center pin as the 12-volt accessory circuit. If the truck is wired one way, and the trailer or the...

  • Brake Controller Install on 2007 Sierra Causing Mirror Display and Interior Lights to Malfunction
    My best guess is that during the installation, something under the dash was inadvertently dislodged. The tow package wiring and the interior lamp and power mirror temperature display circuits are not related in any way, so either something was accidentally unplugged or the malfunctions you mentioned are merely coincidental. Just to make absolutely sure I hadn't missed anything, I checked with my contact at Tekonsha. He could think of no possible way a brake controller installation could...

  • One Wheel On Trailer Locks Up After Installing New Electric Brakes
    You would not want the brakes to lock up the wheels on your trailer. In addition to adjusting the brakes as shown in the video, you will also need to adjust your brake controller. Also, when adjusting and setting the brakes, you will want to do so on pavement, not on dirt. To adjust your brake controller, first unplug it for a few minutes for it to reset. Then, you will want to warm up the trailer brakes using the manual slide lever on your brake controller a few times. Using the manual...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up when Day Time Running Lights are On for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If you are using a brake controller then the likely cause is that the brake controller red wire is not in the right place in the harness used to plug into the truck. I have included a picture that shows where all the wires needed to be for you. If you do not have a brake controller then the likely issue is a short of some kind in the trailer connector either on the truck or the trailer. You will need to make sure that both are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. You will also want...

  • Left-Side Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Slowing Down Using New Electric Brake Controller
    Since the right side trailer brakes on your new HandH trailer seem to be working correctly the issue is likely to be simply a matter of adjustment to the drivers-side brake assemblies. Electric brakes like the units you referenced # 23-106 have a star-shaped adjustment wheel under the magnet. This can be used to set the braking pressure. The linked video shows at the 4:26 mark how to do this.

  • How to Determine if A Trailer Hub/Drum or Spindle is Damaged Beyond Repair
    For the drum what you are going to want to look at is discoloration where the pads make contact with the drum and the armature surface which is where the magnet makes contact with the inside of the drum. Discoloration means that the metal is damaged and the hub and drum assembly would need to be replaced. In some cases some brake brake shops can turn a drum but it seems that less and less places are doing that. Both pictures came through. The brakes look like they may have taken some...

  • Inspecting and Testing Trailer Brake Magnet and Wiring
    The magnet looks to be fine, a little dirty perhaps, but it doesn't look like the copper windings are coming through. The melted wire though indicates that there was likely a short that caused the wire to melt. A short could have been at the magnet or the wiring to the magnet. Pinched wires or frayed copper strands touching bare metal could be the cause. I have included a link to a help article that explains how to test the magnets.

  • Can Electric Drum Brakes be Used on a Boat Trailer
    Actually, i would not recommend an electric brake assembly for a boat trailer because the finish on them is not the best for marine applications and you could run into short problems if the wiring is not sealed out from the water. It is done sometimes it just not recommended and I would use hydraulic disc brakes. I would need to know the wheel size you have, the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings,and the axle capacity. If the trailer is set up for...

  • One Brake Sometimes Locks Up on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    Often times when one brake locks up and the others do not it is an electrical issue that can stem from several sources. First you will want to visually inspect the magnets to see if the windings are coming through. If they are then the magnets will need to be replaced. They could be shorting out and drawing too much power causing it to lock up. Another issue could be the wiring to the magnets. Make sure the grounds are attached to a nearby corrosion free bare metal surface. Inspect the...
