Video Transcript for Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Installation

Today, on this enclosed trailer, we're going to install Part Number 23-105. This is a 12 inch, electric brake assembly for the left hand side of the trailer rated at 6,000 pounds from Dexter. Everything shown in this video will also apply to Part Number 23-106. This is the same type of brake assembly but for the right hand side. Now this is traditional brake assembly that you're probably used to seeing. It has a small, oval magnet on the bottom.

Our new one looks a little bit different but it bolts on the same and wires at the same, just as the original. You see the label for left hand side. You can see the 5 nuts on the preexisting studs on the axle, with the same dimension and number here. Let's go down to our next axle where we have our brake assembly already removed and you can see where everything is gone, we go ahead and take our new part and slide into place. When you install it, you want to always make sure that your magnet is always facing toward the ground. After you take off the nuts for the original brake assembly, it's a good idea to go ahead and just cut your wires. Basically, what you want to do is just cut them but still leave a little lead left over so you have a fresh to work with.

Let's go ahead and put our new brake assembly in place. We can go ahead and reinstall the original nuts and lock washers. Oaky, inaudible 00:01:30 We'll go ahead and run them down and then hand tighten them. In just a matter of a few moments, we've got a whole new brake assembly installed, new magnets, and new pads and springs. It's a lot quicker this way than buying pieces individually and putting them on your old back inaudible 00:01:56 plate. There are a variety of ways of making a wire connections but in this case, we'll be using Part Number DW05744-10.

This is the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector for 16 and 14 gauge wires. Just like any other butt connector, we'll go ahead and strip the wires back. Twist our wires and add our butt connectors. Now to connect the wires, we don't have to worry about polarity because magnets don't have a polarity. You just want to make sure that one of these wires eventually goes to ground and the other wire eventually goes to your hot lead and your output from your brake controller. All right, we've got our connections made, we'll go ahead and use the heat gun to seal them up.

Now instead of a heat gun, you can get by with a lighter. Once we allow them to cool, you can go ahead and tape them up or secure them anyway that you'd like. Now, we've got our wheel and our hub already installed, all we're going to do is adjust the brakes. Using the brake tool, and we'll just go ahead and tighten up the adjusters until you really can't spin the wheel. Then a tip clue, you want to back it off one click at a time about 10 clicks. Then give it a spin and you should have a very light drag. If you don't, like in this case here, you probably want to tighten it up just a little bit more but that gets you pretty close. There it is right there. There you have it for Part Number 23-105. .

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 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. 367139

I had ordered some parts online to rebuild the suspension on one of our trailers. Customer service called me a short time later to inform me that they were out of stock on some items, they asked if it was possible to substitute some items. She was able to find the exact parts I needed in a different kit. The parts came within 3 days, very well packed, and they fit perfectly! This is the 3rd time I've ordered from etrailer and they have exceeded my expectations every time. EXCELLENT customer service and quality parts. 347619

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. 265910

  • How to Order Dexter 6k Axle with Brakes 7461121 with Self Adjusting Brakes
  • The brakes that come with the Dexter Axle part # 7461121-EB are manual adjust brakes part numbers # 23-106 and # 23-105. To order a similar setup with self-adjusting brakes is possible but you will need to piece the kit together as we don't have it all as one part number.

  • Troubleshooting Locked Brakes on 2013 Forest River Salem Travel Trailer
  • If the electric drum brakes on your Forest River Salem travel trailer are locked up then the first thing you can check is the breakaway switch and battery which provide emergency braking in the event of a vehicle/trailer disconnect. it is possible that your breakaway switch has been tripped/damaged or that there is a wiring issue in that system that is sending power to the brakes. First, disconnect the trailer plug from the tow vehicle socket to prevent any chance of your vehicle's brake...

  • Replacement Hubs and Brakes Needed with Inner Bearing # 22580 and Outer Bearing # LM67048
  • Based on the bearing numbers you provided, the Dexter Hub and Drum Assembly, # 8-201-5UC3, is most likely the correct hub for your spindles. This hub comes with inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # LM67048. It was designed for 5,200 lb axles and has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. To be absolutely certain that this hub will work for you, I recommend checking the grease seals on your hubs as well. This hub comes with a # 10-1 grease seal. If possible, check your old grease seals...

  • Replacement Electric Brake Assemblies for Dual Axle Trailer with Different Capacity Brakes Installed
  • I really am not sure why different rated brake assemblies would have been installed on your dual axle trailer, as this is definitely not recommended. The 023-105-00 part number you found for the left side assemblies refers to the Dexter 6,000 Pound # 23-105, while the 023-181-00 part number refers to the 7,000 pound # 23-181. When replacing the brakes, I do recommend replacing them with assemblies of matching capacity. I recommend verifying the axle capacity on your trailer so you...

  • Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation for Dexter Assemblies Marked 023-106 for Both Sides of Axle
  • Sounds like you need the brake assemblies part # 23-105 and # 23-106 to provide you with brake assemblies for both sides of your trailer. These are 6k Dexter brake assemblies that are 12 inches in diameter. For a replacement nut the part # 38N typically is what is used. For a lock washer part # 38LW.

  • 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.

  • How to Tell if a Trailer Has Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies

  • 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.

  • 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...

This assembly is designed for 5,200 pound axles and features a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I have attached an article on how to measure your bolt pattern so you can ensure this will be the correct fit. The hub uses # 25580 inner bearing and # LM67048. I also recommend verifying the bearings on your existing hubs so you can be sure this is a perfect match....

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies For Gooseneck Trailer With Dual 7K Axles
  • With 7K axles on your trailer I recommend using brakes that are designed for your rig. Using 6K brakes on the trailer may not be sufficient. There are two differences between the 6k and the 7k brakes. The brake magnet regardless of the size magnet has more windings on the 7k which makes the magnet stronger. Also, the linings are constructed of different material between the 6k and 7k. The 7k material is more aggressive. Since price is a factor for you I recommend going with less-expensive...

This includes two double lip seals and they have the same inner diameter, outer diameter and thickness as your current seals.

He stated that the serial number you found is a pretty old number and unfortunately they don't have much information on this particular axle. He was not able to confirm its rating or length. If you are looking to replace the axle, we do not have any torsion axles available but I do have a great option. I recommend taking a look at an Axle-Less System like the Timbren # TASR7KS01.

  • Front Axle Trailer Brakes Lock Up with Brake Controller Set to Minimum Power Output
  • There could be a short in the wiring to the front axle brakes. Inspect the wiring and look for any pinched, frayed, or otherwise damaged wires and repair as needed. Also make sure that the ground wires are attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. Make sure the brakes are wired up like the diagram I have included. There could also be a problem with the brake magnets themselves. I have included a link that explains how to test brake magnets for you.

  • Can Different Brand Electric Trailer Brakes be Used on a Dexter Axle
  • No, you don't have to use Dexter brakes with your Dexter axles. There are some brake assemblies that are unique though that fit other axles so you would still need to look closely at the descriptions to determine if a given brake assembly has a special application or not. For example a 7K etrailer assembly # AKEBRK-6L would fit in place of a 6K Dexter assembly # 23-106. If it were me I would go with the etrailer brakes because they are a fantastic value.

  • 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...

  • Will 5 Hole Brake Backing Plate fit Mobile Home Axle
  • Our 5 bolt mounting flange, # 4-44-1, will fit 3" round axles and fits with 12" brake assemblies like # 23-105 for the left side and # 23-106 for the right side. We recommend having brake mounting flanges installed by trailer building professionals, that have a jig to hold the brake mounting flange square and concentric to the spindle, for proper braking performance.

  • Brake Assembly Recommendation for Trailer with Dexter 5,200 lb Trailer Axle
  • We definitely have Dexter brake assemblies to fit a Dexter 5,200 lb axle like you have. The part # AKEBRK-7-SA is a kit that includes a left and right hand assembly for a 5,200 lb axle like what you have. These are self-adjusting too which means that you'll never have to manually adjust them either.

  • 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...

  • Converting Trailer from Surge Brakes to Electric Brakes
