Video Transcript for Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the 10 inch Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes. They're available for the driver's side and the passenger side, or as a kit with both. They come in weight ratings of 3,000 pounds, 3,500 pounds, or 4,400 pounds. That's going to depend on which axle you have on your trailer.One of our customers, Paul, wrote in, "What is the difference between the 3,500 and 4,400 assembly and how do I know which axle I have on my trailer" Well that's easy, Paul. There should be a tag or information stamped into the axle. You just want to see what you have there, and refer to our site to get the appropriate one.

The 3,500 and the 4,400 are the weight ratings.This electric brake assembly is going to be a direct replacement for ones that may be existing on your trailer, or you can upgrade your trailer to add these. The manual inaudible 00:00:47 at the bottom will get a signal from the brake controller on your vehicle. Depending on the sensitivity of the brake controller, that will vary the magnitude of the magnetism on the magnet. The magnet will grab your drum brake, forcing the pads outward, causing the brakes to apply.The brake pads on our assembly are going to be bonded pads. What's nice about this versus riveted pads, is that as your brake pads wear, no rivets can poke through causing any damage to your drum assembly.

There is a left and right brake assembly. There's a sticker located on here that will tell you whether it's a left or right hand side. Another way you can help identify if you have the appropriate side is that this is a leading trailing pad set up, so the smaller pad is your leading pad, which goes towards the front, and the trailing is the larger pad, which is located towards the rear.It comes ready to wire, so you just need to hook it up to your old assembly's wiring if you've replaced it. Or if you're running new ones, you'll need to make sure you have one connection to ground and the other one connected to your brake controller signal. It doesn't matter which one's connected to which, either one will work.It'll connect to your axle with a four bolt pattern.

The hardware you'll need to connect it to your axles comes included with our assembly. When your tire's on, and the system's fully assembled, you can adjust it through the open slot, here at the back. The kit includes a small cover that can be placed over this, to seal up your assembly, once you're done adjusting.We're going to start with our wheel off. Since we're upgrading, by adding brakes to our system instead of just replacing an old assembly, we'll need to replace this hub with our new drum brake hub. You'll need to take the cap off here, at the end.

You'll just hammer this off. Below here, you're going to have your nut. To remove the nut, you're going to need to take the cotter pin, it's found beneath. We're going to have to straighten it back out, so we'll just grab it here, with our needle-nosed pliers. If you are planning on re-using that cap we knocked off, I do recommend using a rubber mallet for that, so you don't damage it. Once you've got the cotter pin straight, you can just pull the cotter pin out. We're going to set it aside. We've got a napkin laid down for everything, so that way, we don't make a mess.Now, we'll remove the nut, located here in the center, using a pair of channel locks. I'm just going to unthread that, all the way. And we're going to set it aside.Our whole hub assembly can now be pulled off. You want to note, though, that there's going to be a washer and a bearing that's just going to fall out, so we're going to use our needle-nose pliers to catch those. We'll set those aside, and now we can set our hub aside. Now, since we're adding drum brakes, we won't be re-installing that hub, nor any of the components except for the nut and the cotter pin and the washer. We won't be re-using the bearings.Now you're going to want to remove all that grease that's on there. And we can now install our drum brake assembly. You want to make sure you've got the wires and anything else out of the way, here on the back. Now, if you had an old assembly on yours, now's the time to remove it from your hub. There'll be four nuts on the back you'll need to remove, and you'll need to cut the two electrical wire that go to your old hub. Now, we can slide on our new hub. If you're just upgrading your brakes, there won't be one to remove, you'll just be sliding this on.Now we'll go around back and install our hardware. On the back side, your studs are going to poke through the hub flange. We're going to install a nut onto each stud. We'll now tighten down all our hardware, using an 11/16ths socket. You may need a wrench for some of these ones here. If you can't get to it with a socket, you may need to use a wrench.Now, if you're replacing your old brake assembly, you'll just want to re-install your hub in reverse order that you removed it. If you're upgrading your system, by adding these brake components, you'll need to purchase a new drum, with bearings and seal, which all is available here at etrailer.com. The new assembly will just slide on, if you are replacing it. On the other side, we'll install our bearing, followed by the washer that we removed. You want to make sure you get that pushed in there, so we can install our nut, which is the next component.The only thing I want to mention, as we're doing this process, you want to make sure to use plenty of grease. You'll see here, at the end of our axle, we do have a grease circ. We did repack all of our bearings, but we're going to make sure to use that grease circ, at the end, to finish filling it with grease. If you don't have that grease circ, you may want to pack additional grease inside your assembly. After you've got your bearings adjusted, you'll install your cotter pin, followed by your cap.We've gone ahead and put our tire back on, now. I find it easier to adjust the brakes, because you've got a little more leverage, and you can feel what it's going to feel like, when it's fully assembled. You're looking for a slight amount of drag. We've got just a little bit too much drag on this wheel, so we're going to adjust it, here at the back.You'll have access to your adjuster through the openings here, at the back. You can use a flat plated screwdriver, or they do have special drum brake adjustment tools, and you just want to turn this star wheel. Turning this wheel will adjust the tension of your brake pads, against the drum. One way to do this is tighten it down all the way, until your wheel stops moving, and then back it off. This ensures that you made good contact, and you've got the right amount of drag.And there we go, we've got just a little bit of drag, you can see the wheel still spins freely, but will, eventually, come to a stop, because of that slight amount of drag. Once you're finished adjusting, we can insert the plastic caps on the back of our backing plate. Now we're ready to connect our wiring.I'm now going to use some heat shrink yellow butt connectors, to make our connection for our wiring, here. Our blue wire is our brake signal wire, and our white wire is ground. If these are already run on your vehicle, because you're just replacing it, you'll just make a connection. Either color can go to either wire. If you're adding this to your system, you're going to need to run your own brake signal wire from your seven pole connector back, and also a ground wire. These colors may be different on your trailer.We'll then use a heat gun to shrink down our heat shrink butt connectors. On the back of your backing plate, you'll find a small, plastic clip. You can take your wiring and just snap it onto that. You do want to make sure that you leave yourself some slack, though, because your suspension is going to be moving up and down, and you don't want to yank out the wires. We are going to actually to it like this, so we have some slack. We'll now repeat this same process on the other side.And that completes our look at the ten inch Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes.

Added brakes to my 6X10 Wells Cargo enclosed trailer. They are working great. Easy install. As always, new trailer brakes take some time to wear in before you get full "lock - up" level braking. I'd buy these again. As always, great order and order fulfillment experience with etrailer. 696553

I'm in the middle right now because 2 of the shoes had a fair size piece of the braking pad portion break away from the rest. They were very fast to send replacements so I have nothing but praise for that. I have done business with these people before and have had very fine experiences. I suspect this was just a fluke thing. I will order from here in the future. 295490

  • Testing Trailer Brake Magnets with a Multimeter
    You may have a problem with the brake magnet. First, since you have had the brakes apart, if you happened to notice any of the windings coming though on the magnets, that would indicate that they need to be replaced. Beyond that, in order to test the brake magnets, you will need to use a multimeter, like # BTMT15. We have an FAQ article on how to test the magnets and what to look for as far as resistance, amp draw, and testing for shorts. I have included a link to it for you to view.

  • Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Lippert 3,500 lb Trailer Axle
    The 10" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-27 that you referenced should work well on your Lippert 3,500 lb trailer axles. Your Lippert axles should use a 4 bolt mounting flange and have hub/drums that are 10 by 2-1/4 inches like what this assembly is designed to fit. For the matching left hand side assembly you would want the # 23-26.

  • What is Correct Gauge of Wire for Wiring Trailer Brakes
    Yes the issue is related to the wire gauge you have. You need to go with 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 (sold by foot) to deliver the amperage and voltage needed for your brakes to activate. 14 or 16 gauge wire is no where near heavy enough for this task.

  • What Do Old Warner Trailer Brake Assemblies Look Like
    Those are Warner trailer brakes. This style is not made anymore and replacement parts are hard to find. We have some parts for the larger Warner assemblies but NOT the 12 x 2 inch ones. Most people end up replacing them. You will have to have standard brake mounting flanges welded to the axle, see link, if it doesn't have them already. You will also need to replace the hub and drum assemblies. For that I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of...

    Electric proportional brake controllers are required to be manually leveled by hand according to the parameters outlined in the installation instructions. Not all brake controllers have the same mounting range so you need to make sure you follow the instructions. One thing proportional brake controllers have in common is that in addition to the specific mounting range, they also cannot be tilted left or right or lean to one side or the other. They need to be mounted in the direction...

  • Should a Trailer Brake Magnet Make Contact with a Drum Even With No Brakes Applied
    The magnet should only make contact with the inside of the brake drum when power is applied to the magnet. If it is making contact with the drum all the time, you may have residual power running on the brake wire that is just enough to cause the magnet to grab the drum. You will need to check the magnet power wire with a circuit tester, # 40376, to see if there is any power when the brakes are not applied. If there is, there is a short circuit somewhere and you will need to track it...

  • Low Voltage to Trailer Brakes After Installing New Brake Assemblies
    Its not uncommon for there to be slight voltage drop off over a certain distance but with the brake controller set to the maximum you should still be getting 12 volts at the brake magnets. We need to determine if the low voltage is coming from the controller or somewhere down stream. What you will do is sever the brake controller blue wire several inched back from the controller. Then use your meter to test for voltage on the end of the blue wire coming from the controller while applying...

  • Troubleshooting New Trailer Brakes Where One Side of Trailer Brakes Harder than the Other
    If the adjustment of both brake assemblies are good and you can notice that the one side of the brakes are pulling harder than the other that would lead me to believe that the problem is the grounds of the brake assemblies on the right side of the trailer. A lot of times trailer brakes ground to the frame. I would just run all of the grounds back to the main ground harness of the trailer to see if that fixes the problem. The other problem is that it could be that your brake magnets are...

  • Troubleshooting 8 Volts at Electric Trailer Brakes
    Since you are getting 12 volts at the trailer connector and at each magnet individually it sounds like there is possibly a short between some of the brake magnets or, since you have 6 brake assemblies, maybe you are not using a wire that is thick enough. For a triple axle trailer, you should be using 10 gauge wire. I recommend replacing the wiring with # 10-2-1 and rewire the brakes. Often times, axle manufacturers will only use 12 and sometimes 14 gauge wire on their axles.

  • How Do You Know When Trailer Brake Pads/Drums Need to Be Replaced
    You would know to replace brake shoes the same way you would know with a vehicle. If performance is suffering and adjusting the brakes does not help and there are no other issues causing the poor performance it is probably time to change the brake shoes. Some shoes that have pads that are riveted on should be replaced once the pad wears down to that rivet. When you have the hub off the axle inspect the inside of it. Does it look torn up where the magnet rides or where the brake pads...

  • What is Needed To Install Electric Brakes On A Master Tow Dolly That Doesnt Have Brakes
    Before installing brakes on your trailer, you will need to know some basic information about your existing trailer. The first thing you will need to find out is if your tow dolly has a brake mounting flange mounted on your existing axle. The brake mounting flange provides a secure attachment point for a brake assembly. If you have a mounting flange, send me a picture or dimensions. See diagram to the right. This will help determine your existing brake mounting flange pattern. If you...

  • Trailer Brakes are Very Weak Even After Adjusting Them
    Since the trailer was off of the ground it would not take much voltage to stop the wheels from spinning so they may be getting power but they may not be getting enough power due to a short or wiring issue. But 9 times out of 10 weak trailer brakes indicate that the brakes need to be adjusted. Since you adjusted the brakes and that did not help it could be time to replace the shoes. If enough of the pads has worn away they will not be able to adjust out far enough to make good contact...

  • Why are Electric Brakes Getting Hot on 98 Coleman Camper After Installation of New Brake Assemblies
    It sounds to me as if there is one of three problems going on. The most likely problem is that the brake assembly on the right side is not properly adjusted. There is an access hole in the backing plate to insert a brake adjusting tool through and turn the adjuster in or out to properly adjust the trailer brakes. We have a video on trailer brake installation and at 4 minutes 40 seconds trailer brake adjustment is shown. Tighten up the brakes inside the drum until it stops turning. Then...

    To adjust your brakes, you will want use a brake adjustment tool and turn the adjustment gear which is accessible through the back of the brake assembly. You will want to tighten the gear so that you cannot turn the wheel, then you will want to back the gear off 10 clicks. This will be the proper adjustment for the brakes and will need to be repeated on each brake assembly of the trailer (see video link). Another adjustment you will want to make is with your brake controller. If your...

  • How Tight Should the Nuts be When Attaching a Trailer Brake Assembly to a Trailer
    When installing brake assemblies like the Electric Brake Assembly, # 23-27, that you have referenced, there is no specific torque rating when tightening the nuts on the backing plate. Basically you will want them to be as tight as you can get them using the appropriate wrench. You will not need to use a breaker bar for extra torque when tightening the nuts. Take a look at the two videos linked below. Our installer does not mention a specific torque rating, but uses a wrench and tightens...

  • Troubleshooting Low Voltage Output from Brake Controller
    Something is obviously causing a voltage drop between the brake controller and the trailer connector. The usual culprit in this type of situation is a break in the wire or a corroded wire. Check the wiring under the truck. You should be able to trace the trailer connector wires from the back of the trailer connector up toward the front of the truck. Look for any sections that look like they may have been pinched, frayed or even eaten through. If there are any wires spliced in or quick splices,...

  • Can 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Electric Trailer Brakes be Used in Place of 10 x 1-1/2 Inch Brakes
    You will need to measure the width of the inside of the drum where the pad makes contact with the drum to determine if you can go to the wider 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies. If you cannot then you would also need to change out the hub and drum. To do that I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. If the hub is wide enough then you can use the 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies # 23-27 for the right side and # 23-26 for the left. It is also...

Try maxing out all of the adjustment setting to see if that changes anything. What brake controller do you have? What vehicle is it? You have done most of the troubleshooting steps that are recommended so this is a tough one. Hopefully it's as simple as just adjusting the brake controller to a more aggressive setting.

    It sounds like there is an electrical short on your trailer wiring that is activating your left rear brake assembly and that is why the brake continues to drag and get hot.

I would start at the wiring near the brake assembly and check for corrosion and loose or exposed wires and fix as necessary. You will want to trace this back...

  • Will Dexter Electric Brake Assemblies fit Axis Hub and Drums

  • Do Electric Trailer Brakes Work in Reverse
    When the brake magnet is pushed in either direction on the brake assembly (forward or backward), the brake shoes are forced apart which activates the trailer brakes. When pushed backwards the brakes won't apply quite as hard as when going forward, but they still do work. I have had brake assemblies at my desk and wondered the same thing so I pushed the actuating arm forward and backwards and found that either direction causes the shoes to push out.

  • Troubleshooting New Trailer Brake Magnets that are Weak
    It sounds like you either have bad grounds for the brake assemblies or you are using too small of gauge for the brake assemblies themselves. The brake output circuit should be 10 gauge wire like the part # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot. Make sure the ground wires of the assemblies are attached to a clean metal surface on the trailer's frame. You can try adding jumper wires from the trailer frame to the main ground of the trailer's wiring to see if that might help as well.
