Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 12" - Left Hand - 7,000 lbs - 23-180

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (83 Customer Reviews)

12" x 2" Driver's-side electric trailer brake assembly fits 7,000-lb axles. Mounting flange has a 5-bolt pattern. Fits 14-1/2", 15", 16", and 16-1/2" wheels.


These things are major time-savers! Bolt the whole assembly on, wire it up, and go! Can't beat the price either - would cost quite a bit more buying the parts individually. Made a huge difference in stopping power on my 18' Dively car hauler, 9990 GVWR. The brakes were 6 years old at the time, and had tens of thousands of miles on them - abusive miles too, with shoes seizing and dragging, electrical failures causing some to work 3x as hard as others, stop and go MA traffic, etc.

While I was at it, I also grabbed 30' of Deka jacketed 2-wire 10 gauge brake wiring, and redid the whole system from the plug back. I also removed the drums, had them turned at a local garage, and installed brand new bearings, races, & seals. The improvement in stopping power was nothing short of amazing.

I went from having my Tekonsha P3 on boost level 3 at 11 volts +, trailer UNLOADED, to running boost level 1 at 6 volts with 4,000 lbs. on the 2k lb. trailer! BIG difference in stopping power!

So far so good! No problems with hanging brakes from being parked a majority of the time, on dirt, through wet and humid to freezing cold Massachusetts weather. Theyve also run through hundreds of miles of corrosive road salt. Had to make a few adjustments right out of the gate and am probably due for another after 2k or so miles, but thats normal break-in procedure. Well worth the price!


This part fit my Rockwood 5th wheel and arrived in good condition. I would give this 5 stars, but it arrived 2 days late. This was probably a UPS issue, but this is the second time an etrailer delivery was late. If time is critical, be wary of the estimated delivery date



I wanted to say "thank you"

Marti help identify the exact products I was looking for! Marti was also very personable and did an excellent job in getting my shipment through the process flawlessly!

Thanks again for your great customer service!


It was just what we were looking for


Perfect replacement. Easy install. Etrailer will continue to have my business.


Super support and service. Instant ship ping!


Amazing service ! Fast delivery. I will definitely use etrailer again


The parts I ordered were back ordered, although I was in no hurry for them. They communicated with me about alternative parts, and kept me informed about when the parts would be available. I did receive them when promised. I highly recommend etrailer.


the order was great. I just wish I would have received an expected delivery date. Product was exactly what we needed.


Both brake assemblies were good and both installed without issues.


Exactly as described and of high US made quality. Buy USA made only.

No issues at all. Would purchase again only if American made.


The Brakes were the correct ones and fit perfectly on the axles. Was a ten min replacement per axle. I only had a small decal to identify the original backing plate and the sales person was able to cross reference the number to drive at this set of brakes. Was very painless. Thanks Mike

Quality parts, quick service. We are working on a Landoll trailer, that isn't in production anymore. I spent a day on the Internet looking for parts. Your site was the only one that had what we needed. I'm glad I found you!


Ordered the parts by phone. Melissa was highly knowledgeable and extremely professional. Would recommend eTrailer to anyone that needs trailer parts or trailer hitches.


I have received and installed four of these products on my trailer. Two lefts and two rights. I've been very pleased with the service and responses from on their products. I would recommend this this company in the future. Thank you very much.


Parts were as described and fitment was perfect. The guys and gals at etrailer have what you need and know there parts!


Bought brake replacement kit for 20 ft gooseneck trailer, exact fit


I couldn't have been more excited about the service I received, after going to my local parts store I was able to service both axles with express shipping included for the price of 1 unit here. Mahalo Monroe for your excellent service.


High quality Dexter parts at great prices. Along with fast shipping, what's not to like about buying from etrailer!


The customer service is top notch! Helped me with multiple questions and updated me with E.T.A. and tracking # I will Definitely will buy from them again!!!


I purchased theDexter 23-180 and 23-181 brake assemblies. such a easy task of installing. Quality is awsome.And you can not wire these wrong, and very fast delivery. Looking foward to continued buisness with etrailer. Thanks Paul


Parts were as described, and worked well for my application. AMAZED by the customer service at etrailer! Nicole T was very informative and my ordered was shipped out guys have won my business for sure!


My No Adjust 12" brakes were completely shot after 3000 miles so I wanted to try the manual adjust. So far great. The fit well and were very easy to install.


The brakes have been on the horse trailer for a year now. They work great.
