I must tell you, my fellow etrailer shoppers and handi-man repair individuals that approx. 1 yr. ago I purchased 4- Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake replacement assembies for my Big Horn 36ft. 5th wheel from etrailer and had the pleasure to be connected to customer service Rep. Phyllis L.. Phyllis went out of her way to make sure that I would receive the correct parts needed to get me on my way to our snowbird location 2200 miles away from home! The Dexter trailer brake assemblies were very easy to install and the initial adjustment was simple. 5000 miles later they are working very well. Thanks etrailer , Phyllis L. 900070

I bought replacements for all four wheels, even though only one of the originals was broken. I have only replaced the one that was broken, holding the others in reserve. That said, I am very happy with the one I installed. As with any items I have purchased from etrailer.com, I am happy with the quality of the products, the speed with which those products arrive, the cost of the products, and the convenience of purchasing from them. I will continue to purchase from this company and tell my friends of their products. Thank you. Bob 694734

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for Trailer with 023-106-00 Sticker
    The part number on your brake assembly matches our part # 23-106 which is a 12 inch brake assembly for 6,000 lb axles that secures to axles with a 5 bolt mounting flange. We can ship to Canada as well.

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Dexter 23-467
    We don't carry the exact same assembly as what you have but we have one that will work. The part # AKEBRK-7R-SA is a 5,200 lb self-adjusting brake assembly that will match right up and work well for you. For the matching other side you would want the part # AKEBRK-7L-SA.

  • Can Electric Trailer Brakes for 7,000 Pound Axles be Used on a 4,500 Pound Trailer
    You might be able to use 7K brakes on your trailer provided that the drums used are large enough and that the mounting pattern for the brake assemblies matches the pattern on the brake mounting flanges on the axles. Brakes for 7K axles are going to be 12x2 inches and have a 5-bolt mounting pattern. You will likely find though that the brakes will be overly aggressive on lighter trailers. It is recommended to use brakes that are of the appropriate capacity for your trailer's gross...

  • How to Convert 7k Surge Brake Axles to Electric Brakes
    You can pretty easily convert a trailer from surge brakes to electric brakes. It basically will require you to remove all of the hydraulic lines, lock out the actuator (or replace it), remove the hubs to replace the assemblies with electric units, and then wire up the assemblies. I attached a help article that will walk you through this entire process. For 7k rated Dexter brake assemblies you would want the part # 23-465 for the right hand side and part # 23-464 for the left hand side. For...

  • Installation of Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies and Importance of Orientation
    The braking will not work as well because the primary brake shoe will not be in the correct location and you may also experience premature brake shoe wear because gravity will pull on the magnet lever slightly activating the brakes while driving. The assemblies are labeled for the correct side to avoid that issue. For instance the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 12" - Left Hand - 7,000 lbs # 23-464 should be installed on the driver's side. I've attached a video...

  • Are Replacement Shoes/Linings and Magents Available for Dexter 12x2 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brakes
    Yes, the brake shoes and magnets are available as replacement parts for 12 inch Nev-R-Adjust brake assembly # 23-464. Some brake assemblies have expensive replacement parts and on those it makes more sense to replace the whole assembly. For replacement shoes, left hand side use # K71-675 and for the right use # K71-676. The magnet is # BP01-225. The cost of a magnet and shoe/lining for one brake assembly costs more than the whole assembly. Going to disc brakes is a great idea. Not only...

  • Troubleshooting Self-Adjusting Brakes Locking Up
    I can help you try and figure out why your Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly like parts # 23-465 and # 23-464 are locking up and there are a multitude of reasons. When this happens it is often an electrical issue or the brake magnets so check out your 7-way to ensure there is no corrosion which will be white or green which may be hampering the functionality of your brakes; if so, clean as necessary and that may resolve the issue. Next, you need to use Digital Multimeter...

  • How Do Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Drum Trailer Brake Assemblies Work
    Besides the initial adjustment, which is not required but still recommended, you will not need to adjust the Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, # 23-464, unless you wanted to. According to Dexter, during travel, the brakes will automatically rotate an adjuster assembly to close the gap caused by lining wear. The brakes will remain in the optimum braking adjustment for safer braking. The Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for the right hand side is # 23-465.

  • Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation for 6K or 7K Axles with 8 Lug Bolt Pattern
    The Dexter 6K and 7K axles are very similar to each other, so it can be difficult to determine their capacity just by looks. Dexter axles typically have a specs plate near the center of the axle, but there is a chance that it could have come off. The next place I would look for an indication of the axle capacity is the identification plate on the tongue of the trailer. There should be a plate that lists the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). That should...

  • Is it Okay to Use Nev-R-Adjust Brakes with Nev-R-Lube Hubs
    As long as the brake assemblies you are replacing are 12x2, you can certainly use the Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies. The brake assembly and the bearing system you are using would be unrelated, so there is no reason why you could not use the Nev-R-Adjust assembly. There is also no reason why you could not upgrade to the 7000 lb capacity assembly like the # 23-464 and # 23-465. The brake shoes will be better and the magnet will be a bit stronger.

  • Will the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assembly # 23-464 Fit on a 2007 Newmar Cypress 5th Wheel
    I spoke with the parts department at Newmar and he told me they only use Dexter brake assemblies on their trailers, so the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, # 23-464 (left) and # 23-465 (right), should work with your 7,000 lbs axles on your 2007 Newmar Cypress 35KSRL fifth wheel trailer. To confirm that they will work, you can compare the mounting bolt pattern of these brakes to the bolt pattern of your brake mounting flange or to your current brake assemblies.

  • Determining the Right Brake Assembly and Hub Drum H and H Cargo Trailer
    To get the correct brake assembly, you need to know the axle weight capacity, the backing plate bolt pattern, and the dimension of the drum. A 7000 lb axle would typically use a 12 x 2 assembly with a 5 bolt backing plate. Parts # 23-464 and # 23-465 are a good example. For replacement drums, we would need to know the wheel bolt pattern (which is typically 8 on 6-1/2) and the reference numbers off of the existing wheel bearings. Part # 8-219-4UC3 would be a typical hub and drum for a...

  • Torque Specification When Installing Dexter 23-464 12 Inch Electric Brake Assembly
    When istalling the Dexter 12 inch brake assembly like # 23-464, the 3/8-24 mounting bolts like what's included with our # BRKH12 mounting kit should be torqued to 30-50 ft-lbs.

  • Recommendation for Replacing Electric Brakes on a 7k Dexter Axle with Brakes Mounted Upside Down
    The brake assemblies like the 12 inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, item # 23-464 and # 23-465, that you ordered, are designed to be installed with the brake magnet below the axle, not above. We cannot recommend installing the Nev-R-Adjust assemblies upside down. I would check the axle. If it is a straight axle with no arch in it, then the axle has been installed upside down. If it is an arched axle with the bend oriented upwards, then the mounting flange has been welded on...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Brakes for a 2005 Keystone Challenger 5th Wheel Trailer
    Dexter Nev-R-Adjust electric brake assembly # 23-464 for the left side and # 23-465 for the right side are designed for 7,000 pound trailer axles. These are 12 x 2 inch brakes. If you have 7,000 pound axles then you can measure the inside of the brake drum. If the inside diameter is 12 inches and the inside width is 2 inches then they will fit.

  • Info Needed to Find Self Adjusting Trailer Brakes
    The Dexter Nev-r-Adjust assembly part # 23-464 is a self-adjusting 12 inch by 2 inch assembly for a 7,000 lb axle that has a matching right side of # 23-465. If your trailer has a different size/capacity need let me know what that info is and I will set you up with the parts you are in need of. I attached an install video for the assemblies mentioned as well.

  • How Are Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes Activated
    Yes, you do need a trailer brake controller in your tow vehicle to power electric trailer brakes like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Assembly # 23-464 that you referenced. This is what will connect to the brake circuit on the vehicle so that power is sent back to the trailer brakes in correspondence with the brake pedal. You will also need a 7-Way connector on the vehicle that hooks up to the trailer. If you can tell me what vehicle you have along with what it's already equipped with in terms...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Grease Seal for a Trailer
    The seal needed is going to depend on the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. Or if you know the part number of the hub I could look it up to determine the correct seal. The grease seal though is meant to hold the grease in the hub and not let it leak out the back of the hub. If the drum is filling with grease then it is leaking out somewhere else. You will need to make sure that the correct bearings and races are being used. There are some measurements...

  • Difference Between the Two Types of 12x2 7000 lb. Brake Assemblies
    The difference between the two brake assemblies comes down to one being self adjusting and one that is manually adjusted. I recommend the self adjusting because you will never have to crawl under the trailer to adjust the brakes. This can be a headache and we tend to not do it as often as we should which leads to poor performing brakes. With the self adjusting it automatically tightens as the shoes wear down keeping your trailer's braking performance optimized and working as safely as...

    The difference between Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Right Hand # 23-465 with Left Hand # 23-464 and the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # 23-180-181 is that the former is self-adjusting while the latter is manually adjusting and will require Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630.

  • Replacement 12x2 inch Brake Assembly Recommendation
    There isn't a standard pin length for 12x2 brake assemblies. If you are looking for replacement parts for your current brake assemblies your best option would be to first determine what assembly you have as a lot of the parts are brand specific. Most axles do have the mounting flange for the brake assemblies welded to the axle. Most likely the easiest option you would have would be to replace your 12x2 inch brake assemblies as typically this is the cheaper route. For a left hand 12x2...

    The Dexter part number 023-357-00 is a 12x2 electric brake assembly. The correct RH assembly to use to replace what you have would be the part # 23-459 and for the LH assembly you would want the part # 23-458 if you have 6K axles. If you have 7k axles you would want part # 23-464 for the LH side and part # 23-465 for the RH side.

That means the current part numbers you would want are # 23-464 for the left hand side and part # 23-465 for the right hand side. The part # 23-464-465 that you referenced actually is both of these assemblies kitted together.

  • Comparing The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA To 7K Dexter Brake Assemblies # 23-465/23-464
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA are the equivalent of the Dexter 7K assemblies # 23-465 and # 23-464. They are actually a little nicer than the Dexter assemblies in my opinion because the brake shoe material is cut instead of scored and broken off so there is a cleaner line for less wear and tear at the edge of the material. They are absolutely compatible with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly - 7,000...

They have the best reputation because they are designed well and use high quality components. You really can't beat Dexter's axle components.

If you would like to upgrade to the Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies then you would need part # 23-464 for the left hand and part # 23-465 for the right hand.

    Actually for a 6k rated Dexter 12x2 brake assembly you would want the part # 23-459 for the right hand side and part # 23-458 for the left hand side. Then for a 7k rated assembly you would want part # 23-465 for the right hand side and part # 23-464 for the left hand side. The magnets are rated differently. That is the biggest difference.

    If the brakes you have are the Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, like part # 23-458, part # 23-459, # 23-464, or # 23-465, adjusting these brakes is different than traditional brakes on a vehicle like you described. I have attached a link to a video that explains how the brakes are adjusted. To adjust these brakes you turn your wheel and tire around until you get a slight drag. They are then adjusted. You do not want to turn the wheel until it is locked up. If that should happen...
