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.

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.

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

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 have not figured out how to test the electric brakes.

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.

The product is just what I ordered, and I am glad that it is made in the USA!!! It is easier and just as cost effective to replace the assembly. Thank you ETRAILER.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for 2001 Airstream 25 Foot Safari With Dexter Brakes
    Thanks for the picture and info on your current brake assemblies, from that we know that the Dexter brake assembly part # 23-106 that you referenced is the correct fit. For the left hand side you'd then want the part # 23-105.

    I may have some information that will help, however I did some research on the Ausco electric-over-hydraulic actuators and found that these actuators were discontinued in 2002, so there is no technical information or manuals available for them. I even spoke with Ausco and they could not provide any assistance either. I can tell you that there are some integrated brake controllers that are not compatible with the electric-over-hydraulic brake systems that we carry, unfortunately the IBC...

  • What Causes Trailer Tire Failure
    Typically trailer tires fail for the following 3 reasons. 1) Keep your tires fully inflated to the maximum pressure listed on the tire sidewall. Unlike a passenger car tire, trailer tires feature a stronger sidewall designed to provide greater stability when under load. Failure to fully inflate the tires can cause heat build-up, leading to premature tire failure. Also, a tire only will only realize its specified load rating when inflated to its maximum psi shown on the tire. 2) Do...

  • Which Brake Assemblies fit a 5-Bolt Brake Assembly Backing Plate on a 6K Axle
    I called my contact at Dexter and spoke with him at length about this. Mobile home axles are traditionally weld-on brake assembles that cannot be replaced. If they are actually bolt-on both the 6K and 7K weight capacities will work. Part # 23-105 and part # 23-106 are left and right side 6K capacity brake assemblies. Part # 23-180 and part # 23-181 are left and right side 7K capacity brake assemblies. They have the same mounting pattern and size. The 5-bolt brake assembly pattern is...

  • Replacement 12 x 2 Electric Drum Brakes for Keystone Montana 5th Wheel
    We usually recommend replacing an entire trailer drum brake assembly, rather than individual parts like brake shoes, since the cost is not much more. This gives you a brand new complete brake and avoids the potential for having to tear them down again in the near future to replace another part. 5th wheel trailer axles rated for 7K do use the 12 x 2-inch size of electric drum brake and all such kits are shown on the linked page.

    If your 2007 Airstream trailer currently has 12x2 inch brake assemblies a 5 bolt mounting flange, yes the part # 23-106 and # 23-105 would be the correct replacement assemblies to use. If you are unsure of the brake assembly size that you need check out the picture I attached that shows where you would need to measure on your hub/drums. When you pull off the hub you should be able to count 5 bolts that attach the assembly to the mounting flange as well.

  • What is the Difference In Electric Trailer Brakes for 5,200, 6,000, and 7,000 Pound Trailer Axles
    First, a 5,200 pound axle is a de-rated 6,000 pound axle so they take many of the same parts. Some 7,000 pound axles also take the same size parts. The difference is the size or ability of the magnets. Sometimes you will see the same type of magnet for 5,200 or 6,000 pound axle brakes. Some 7K axle brakes will also fit. A brake for a 5,200 or 6,000 pound axle should not be used on a 7K axle (unless it also fits 7K axles of course) because the magnet is not strong enough to provide the proper...

  • Should a Tandem Axle Trailer with One Surge Brake Axle have Electric Brakes Added to Other Axle
    I wouldn't recommend running a different style of trailer brakes on the second axle of your trailer. It would be very difficult to get the braking action of both axles to sync up and work well together since they will be on totally different systems. You would want to either add hydraulic assemblies to the second axle or electric to both axles. I attached a couple help articles that would walk you through the install of either setup.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes for a Floe Snowmobile Trailer with 2,200 Pound Axles
    The axle you have that can take brakes probably has a 4-bolt mounting pattern for the brakes. You could use Dexter brakes # 23-48 for the right and # 23-47 for the left. If the mounting flange doesn't take a 4-bolt assembly let me know. In addition to the brakes themselves you will also need wiring, maybe a different trailer connector depending on what the trailer has now (if the trailer has a 7-Way then you would not need to change connectors), and the vehicle will need to have a brake...

  • Why Would Brand New Trailer Brakes Feel Weak
    Most brakes also require a (break-in) period. Dexter says to get up to about 20-30 mph and use the manual override several times. They may also feel weak breaking because it is recommended to let the brakes (seat) into the hub for the first 200 miles and then readjust the brakes. It is likely you need to do both of these even if they properly adjusted the brakes. Nearly every time we hear about someone with new brakes that are weak the issue is that they just aren't adjusted properly. Check...

  • Trailer Brakes are Weak on a New Camper Trailer
    The 14 gauge wire is too small. As an electrician you are aware that small gauge wire can choke out the amperage needed to run some electrical devices. Trailer brake magnets wiring should be using 10 gauge wire. We sell 10 gauge wire by the foot, # 10-1-1. If all the wiring is intact with no pinched or frayed wires then make sure the magnet grounds are attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces.

  • Can Brakes Be Added To Mobile Home Axle Used On Utility Trailer
    You can get a new brake mounting flange for your axle. The old flange will need to be cut off. The part is # 4-44-1. This is designed to fit a 3 inch trailer axle and should be welded in place by a professional. Since you would also have to get the old brakes cut off as well the best recommendation I can offer is to replace the entire axle. Mobile home axles and components are designed for one-time use and nearly impossible to find replacement components that work. Most utility...

    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.

We have an FAQ article on the issue which I have linked for you.

If the brake controller is sending back the full power (turn up the gain as far as it will go) but only minimal voltage is getting to the magnets, the brakes are not going to work properly.

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.

    Other than a power and ground connection, the only connection the brake controller has to the vehicle is through its connection to the brake stoplight switch using the red wire exiting the rear of the controller.

I would make sure that the ground wire is secured tightly to a clean surface on the frame. If the wire is attached to the body or a surface with an undercoating or rust it can cause a ground problem. I recommend cleaning the area or finding a better grounding spot for the wire. Another option would be to run all the grounds to the front of the trailer where the main ground...

  • Should I Put Brakes on the Front or Back Axle of my Tandem Axle Trailer
    Typically trailers will carry more of their weight on the front of the trailer, so you would want to put the brakes on the front axle as it will most likely carry more weight while braking. Also, when braking, weight will shift forward from the inertia of the stop, so that would put more weight on the front axle.
