Parts were perfect, still using them regularly. I need an axle but only see spindles online. Do you carry complete axles?

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. 446769

  • 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.

  • 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 Hub/Drum and Brake Assembly for Trailer Axle with Assembly Part 23-106
    Based on the picture you sent in the brake assembly replacement you are looking for is the part # 23-106 which is for 6,000 lb axles. The matching left hand side is part # 23-105. Then the correct hub/drum you need is the part # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which has the matching bolt pattern you need of 6 on 5-1/2 inch and also has the 25580 bearing you have as well.

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brake Assembly to Replace Dexter 023-327-00
    Selecting a replacement electric drum brake assembly requires you to match a few characteristics of your existing assembly. The Dexter brake you referenced, part # 23-106, is a 12 x 2-inch right-hand (passenger side) electric brake with a 5-bolt mounting flange and an axle weight rating of up to 6000-lbs. Since your drums are 12 x 2-inch size these should fit fine. The link provided at right will take you to our main page for electric brakes and you can use the filters in the left...

  • 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. I am also wondering if while testing the brakes if they also adjusted them...

  • 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. For a cost-effective pair of self-adjusting drum brakes...

  • Replacement Grease Seals for Part # 22333TC and Brakes for a 2002 Airstream Safari Trailer
    The correct replacement grease seals for your # 22333TC seals is part # RG06-070. This includes two double lip seals and they have the same inner diameter, outer diameter and thickness as your current seals. To replace your brake assemblies on your 2002 Airstream trailer you can use the Dexter Electric Brake Assemblies, # 23-105 for left hand and # 23-106 for right hand.

  • Troubleshooting Older Valley Journey # 52650 Brake Controller
    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. If this red wire is tapped into the wrong circuit of the switch, the turn signals can operate the brake controller. Use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test the wires exiting the brake stoplight switch located at the top the brake pedal. You want to use the wire that ONLY...

  • Are All 5-Bolt Brake Mounting Flanges the Same
    Most 5-bolt brakes use flange # 4-44-1. That's not to say that there aren't some oddball or older styles that might have had a different 5-bolt pattern but the vast majority are going to use what could be considered as the standard. I included a picture showing the spacing between the bolts on the 5-bolt flange.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Hubs for Yacht Club Trailer WC112
    I wish we had a way to look up your trailer info and figure out what hub it would take but that's not something we can do. In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. The first thing you will need to know is the bolt pattern of your hubs. This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out. Next thing you will need to know...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brakes Not Registering With the Brake Controller
    I can help you troubleshoot your brake controller error. Sounds like a grounding issue to the brake magnet ground. 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...

  • Trailer Brakes were Working Then Brake Controller Light Turned Red and Says Manual Stuck Failure
    It sounds like there could be a short somewhere that is drawing constant power and causing the error. The first place I would check is the trailer connector on the tow vehicle then on the trailer. Make sure both are clean and free of corrosion inside, where the wires attach, and outside on the pins. Also inspect the wiring leading to the brake magnets and repair any pinched or damaged wires. You can also test the brake controller and the brake magnets. In the truck cab you will need...

  • Troubleshooting Locked Up Brakes
    First, I would check your 2016 Keystone Fuzion to see if the break away pin on the trailer, like # 2005-P is in place. Make sure that the connection is complete. If the connection has been pulled and not reconnected properly, the trailer brakes would be locked up as that is what it is designed to do. If that isn't your issue, I would adjust the brakes manually. This will require getting on the ground and on each side of the axle with a flat screwdriver, move the adjuster on the back...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Brakes Lock Up With No Power to Trailer
    If there's no power being delivered to the trailer's brakes, with the trailer unplugged from the tow vehicle and the breakaway system battery removed, you're looking at a mechanical problem, not an electrical problem. Give the brake assemblies on the right side a visual inspection, look for debris, corrosion and broken springs, anything that would cause the brake pads to expand and contact the inside of the brake drums. If everything appears correct and undamaged, make sure the brake...

  • 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. Click the picture to the right to see a picture that displays how tandem axle trailers typically distribute their cargo weight on their two axles. If you have a trailer that...

  • 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...

    Part # 23-106 is a 12 inch manual adjusting brake that fits your drums. Even though it's listed for 6,000 pound axles it's still what you need on your 5,200 pound axles. It's the right hand side, like you mentioned and part # 23-105 is the left, or you can get the kit of them together with part # 23-105-106. Since you need three (whch I admit is a little strange since you should replae them in pairs) you could get the kit for tow of them and then an extra left hand assembly. Everything...

    If the trailer has electric over hydraulic brakes, then the factory integrated brake controller in your 2011 Dodge Ram is not compatible. We have an FAQ article on the issue which I have linked for you. If the trailer just has electric brakes, try adjusting the factory brake controller, it may be set too aggressively for the trailer brakes. You will also want to check the trailer connectors on the truck and trailer to make sure there is no dirt or corrosion build up in or behind the...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Factory Brake Controller be Used w/Electric Over Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
    It sounds like the factory controller and the brake actuator you have are not compatible. The factory controller in a 2010 and up Ram is not for use with electric over hydraulic systems. In order to get the brakes working, you will need to install an aftermarket trailer brake controller like the P2, # 90885. In order to use an aftermarket controller you will need to disconnect the ITBM (factory controller) which will cause a warning light on the dash. To disconnect the ITBM, you will...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up Even with No Power Getting to Them
    Your trailer might be possessed! If the trailer has a battery on it with a breakaway system then that is likely where the power was coming from. Even if there wasn't a breakaway system, if there is a battery on the trailer then it is possible that corrosion on or in the trailer connector could be causing a short from the 12 volt circuit to the brake circuit. Cutting the power to the magnets should cause the brakes to release. But in this case that didn't work. Since you mentioned that...

  • One Side Of Electric Trailer Brakes Are Locking Up When Braking
    There are a few things you can check to make sure the brakes are adjusted correctly, but it sounds like there may be a short in the system. I would start by checking the trailer wiring connector on the truck and trailer for corrosion. If there is corrosion in either connector, it will need to be replaced. Next, I would inspect the wiring on the trailer, for any cut or frayed wires. It is possible that maybe only one brake assembly is getting power. You will also want to check the ground...

  • 12 Volt Pin Not Working on 2001 Chevy Silverado 7-Way Trailer Connector

I have included a couple of pictures that show the backs of vehicle and trailer side 7-Ways and the functions for each of the locations (ignore the wire colors and just focus on the functions).

  • Testing a Vehicle Side 7-Way Trailer Connector for Proper Function
    To check the pins on the vehicle side 7-Way, you can use a circuit tester or the volt meter. The circuit tester will show you if a signal is coming through on the pin you are testing while the volt meter will tell you that and how much voltage is being sent. When you test the brake circuit pin on the 7-Way, it may be more beneficial to see how much voltage it is sending through. If you are facing the 7-Way, using either tester, you will test for the proper signal as follows: 1 oclock...
