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

A year ago I ordered 4 trailer brake assembly sets, brake drums and bearings. They arrived quickly and in good condition. Everything fit well and I had no problems when I towed my trailer across the country. I would definitely buy from Etrailer again. 343049

I bought a new car trailer with brakes on only 1 axle. etrailer had the exact same brakes for me to put on the second axle. These drum brakes were really easy to install, wire and adjust / re-adjust. I'd really recommend brakes on both axles if like me you're towing close to 7000lb. I've made a couple emergency stops around town, and didn't have the feeling i was being pushed by the trailer at all. I'd also really recommend getting a high tech brake controller if you're buying one. I had a cheap one that really sucked, i had to constantly readjust brake power every time my speed varied (to stop being pushed by the trailer at speed or jerking to a stop at low speed). Annoying and dangerous IMO. 337010

  • Thank you for that info and we have everything you need. An 8-247 hub and drum, which is the same as Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3 uses Inner Bearing # L68149, Outer Bearing # L44649, Inner Race # L68111, Outer Race # L44610 and Grease Seal # 58846. These parts are all available in Bearing Kit # BK2-100.

  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange # ASR2000S02 does have the ability to incorporate a hub that has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. If you would like just the hub it is part # AKIHUB-550-35-K and if you would like to have brakes you will need the Hub and Drum # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K, Right Hand (passenger's side) Brake Assembly # 23-48, and Left Hand (driver's side) Brake Assembly # 23-47. With that being said, we highly recommend using trailer tires on a trailer...

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
  • It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle. It is also not advised to use self-adjusting braking assemblies on one axle and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the other. The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns. If you have a 3,500 lb axle or multiple 3,500 lb axles on your trailer then you will need to use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake...

These self-adjusting assemblies require no maintenance adjustment like your factory brake assemblies did. If you prefer the original style, then you will use the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # 23-26-27.

If they use inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649 then you can use Dexter hub/drum # 84546UC3. If you have other bearings you can use the linked page to select your axle rating, bolt pattern, bearings to find a matching hub. For brakes...

  • Info Needed to Pick Out Replacement Brake Assemblies for Dexter Trailer Axle
  • Picking out brake assemblies for Dexter axles is actually pretty easy but I am not able to determine the info I need from your axle tag. To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # 23-27 is a 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch thick brake assembly. You also want to determine what the...

  • I'm sorry to hear about your recent mishap! I'm not sure which of the two axles and hubs on your trailer are in need of replacement but we have exactly what you need for either! To start, for the axle itself the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 7359765 will work perfectly. This axle features a 95" hub face length and a 80" spring center length, matching the existing axles on your trailer really well. The extra inch on the hub length won't cause any issues.

For the matching left hand side assembly you would want the # 23-26.

  • How Do I Determine Which Electric Brakes will Fit my 3500 Pound Axle
  • If you do not have drums already but have standard idler hubs, we would first need to select a drum, then make sure the brake assembly will fit inside that drum. As you guessed, the way to do that is pull apart the hub and bearing numbers. For example, we can say you pull the hub apart and find you have the L68149 inner and L44649 outer bearing configuration, and your wheels are 5 on 4-1/2 lug pattern. With that information we know that you need the Dexter drum assembly, part # 84546UC3....

  • Trailer brakes can be either self-adjusting like the Dexter # 23-468 or may require periodic manual adjustments like # 23-27, depending on the particular model assemblies you have installed on the trailer. An easy way to tell if you have self-adjusting units is to pull the hub/drum off the trailer spindle and check for an adjustable cable that would extend across the brake assembly (see attached picture). If this is present, then you have self-adjusting brake assemblies that will adjust...

  • Replacement Brake Shoes for 10 x 1-3/4-inch Brakes on 22-Foot Travel Trailer with 3500-lb Axles
  • We offer replacement brake shoes for 10 x 1-1/2- and 10 x 2-1/4-inch electric drum brakes but no longer for the 1-3/4-inch width you reference. Dexter part # bp04-065 you referenced is a set of replacement brake shoes for electric trailer brakes normally seen on Dexter 2.8K axles. I was not able to find any brake part with the reference number 1530114. It does sound like an update is in order. If you want to replace your brake assemblies and hubs/drum assemblies you will need to match...

  • 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...

  • Replacement 10 Inch 5-on-5 Bolt Pattern Brake Drums for Old Car Trailer
  • I did a Google search on the information you found on your brake drums and wasn't able to find anything conclusive regarding a replacement. We offer one 10 x 2-1/4 inch brake drum with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, part # 84556UC3 for a standard or # 84556UC3-EZ for an EZ-Lube spindle. If your existing hub uses an #L68149 inner and an # L44649 outer wheel bearing, either of these hubs would be compatible. The hubs include the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, wheel bolts and lug nuts. If...

  • Tips to Keep a Proportional Brake Controller Level When Installing
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Converting 3500 lb Axle from Idler Hubs to Electric Brakes
  • The brake mounting flanges, whether they be 4 or 5 bolt, have a standard hole spacing to fit their appropriate brake assembly. No worries about the brake assembly matching with the existing one on your axle. A 3500 lb axle like what you have will use a 4 bolt flange. You will need to get the numbers that are stamped on your existing bearings, in order to confirm the fit of the # 84557UC3. Your current bearings will need to match the bearings of the replacement hub. The # 84557UC3 uses...

  • Replacement Hub/ Drums, Brake Assemblies and Tires for 2003 Trail-Lite Travel Trailer
  • The Hub and Drum assembly you referenced, part # 84546UC3 has the same casting number on it, so it is most likely the correct replacement for you. I would recommend looking at your existing bearings to confirm a match. If the existing bearings you have are # L68149 inner and # L44649 outer, these are the correct replacements. For electric brake assemblies, use # 23-26 for the left side, and # 23-27 for the right. The mounting nuts, # 6-17 and lock washers, # 5-8 are not included....

  • How to Measure to Select the Correct Brake Shoes for a 6,000 lb Dexter Trailer Axle
  • You will need to measure to select the correct brake assemblies for your axles. You need to know that the brake assembly is compatible with the brake mounting flange and with the drum's diameter and depth. I added a photo showing how to measure a hub/drum for you, Typically 6,000 lb Dexter axles have a 5 bolt brake flange, like part # 4-44-1, and utilize 12 x 2 inch brake assemblies, like part # 23-106. The correct brake shoes for these assemblies are part # AKBRKR-S-12. If you...
