I received these today, just three days after ordering. That is great service! These Dexter brake assemblies are Made in the USA and it shows. Good finish on all the components and all the necessary hardware is there. They fit perfect and adjusted up just as they should. You can't go wrong with these. 589170

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

I originally ordered this 10" brake assembly by mistake. I emailed my mistake and within hours had a return label sent to place back on the box for return and credit. Re-ordered the correct unit and had it within 2 working days. I also have found watching some of their instructional videos helpful. Will definitely use them again in the future for trailer needs. 856602

I am refurbishing a vintage trailer and the previous owner had disconnected the brakes, not sure why. To be safe I decided to go brand new. These brake assemblies arrived in the factory package in good condition. They were easy to install and are working fine. As always the folks at etrailer.com are great to work with and always check up to insure that all is well and address any concerns. Thanks 806738

About a year ago I replaced all my existing breaks on my camper with these. Swapping them out was painless (first time doing so.) After getting the adjustment correct on the brakes and the brake controller they’ve worked great! We have a lot of hills where we live and camp almost every weekend May-October and have had no issues. I will double check in the spring but as of when we parked for the winter there was no need for adjustment yet, plenty of pad left for another season or two! 770406

  • Replacement 7 inch Brake Assembly for Fiat Elnagh 320 Motorhome
    Buongiorno! We do carry Replacement Magnet Kit for 7" Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies - 2,000 lbs Item # AKBRKR-M7. However, it looks like the center mounting hole on yours is round, whereas ours uses a square/rectangular hole. It doesn't appear that the hole on the # AKBRKR-M7 is large enough to allow the arm (on the brake assembly) to fit through. If you scroll to about the 5:40 min mark on the Redline Replacement Magnet Kit video Iinked below, you'll see the arm I'm referring...

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Backing Plate for Alko Axle on 2013 Coachman Clipper Camper
    For your 2013 Coachman Clipper I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3.5K # 23-468-469. 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. Individually this is # 23-27 and # 23-26 as for some reason their pricing...

  • Selecting Trailer Wheels, Tires and Brakes for Off-Road Teardrop Trailer
    Vehicle wheels can have different offset than trailer wheels. Offset is any difference between a wheel's center line and the mounting surface. Positive offset moves the tire closer to the trailer frame and negative offset moves it away. This is why only special trailer wheels are recommended for use on a trailer. Similarly, only special trailer (ST) tires are recommended for use on trailers; passenger vehicle tires should not be used on a trailer, or vice versa. I linked for you our...

  • 3,500 lb Trailer Axle Brake Assembly Recommendation
    For 3,500 lb axles you most likely have 10 inch brake assemblies. For replacements you would want the part # 23-27 for the right hand side and part # 23-26 for the left hand side. You can measure your current ones to verify this. If they are 10 inches in diameter and 2-1/4 inches wide these are a fit. These are self adjusting assemblies that made by Dexter and would work great. I attached a review video for more info as well.

    The correct Dexter brake assembly for you is the part # 23-27. This is a 3,500 lb Dexter assembly that measures 10 x 2-1/4 inches.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Identify Older Hayes Brake Magnet
    It looks like a Hayes Brake magnet part number 73400. We do not carry this part but I did a quick internet search and was able to find a couple places that sell them. From the research I did it looks like this is an older style of brake magnet used in the 1980's.

  • How to Choose Replacement Drums and Brakes for a 1966 M416 Military Trailer
    Due to the age of the trailer, we will want a little more information to make sure we get you the correct hub and drum assembly and brake assemblies. The best way to choose a replacement hub is by using the bearing and grease seal part numbers that are stamped into the metal cage of the bearing and the rubber of the seal. With these part numbers, I can cross reference the correct hub. If you cannot determine the part numbers of the bearings or seals, then the next best option is to...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • How do You Determine If a Trailer Brake Magnet is Worn Out
    If the brake magnet is worn to the point that the windings are visible then you know it's time to replace the magnet. However, magnets can also fail without the visible signs of wear. Check out the FAQ article I attached on testing brake magnets to see how to test your magnets to be sure they are functioning properly. I checked all of the replacement magnets we carry and none of them look like the magnet you submitted a picture of. If you determine you need to replace the magnets you...

  • Troubleshooting a Dragging Electric Brake on a Trailer
    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. Since you have swapped the brake assembly out and still had the problem you know the problem is not in the assembly but somewhere else on the trailer wiring. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Brake Controller Showing Not Connected When Trailer Is Connected
    Since you did not say what the age of the brake controller is the first thing I recommend is to connect the trailer. Go to the rear of the vehicle and make sure the vehicle side connector is receiving 12 volts. If it is not then sever the blue wire at the back of the controller about 4 to 5 inches from the controller. Use a voltmeter and test the blue wire coming from the back of the brake controller. Slide the manual gain all the way. It should read about 12 volts. If it does not there...

  • Proper Adjustment of 10 Inch Electric Brakes On Trailer
    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...

  • Clip that Holds Trailer Brake Magnet to Assembly

  • 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...
