Video Transcript for Dexter 12" Left Hand Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes Installation

Today we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Dexter Axle 12-inch Never Adjust Electric Brake Assembly. For the right side it's part number is 23-465. For the left hand side, it's part number 23-464. Now these are designed to work with axles with up to a 7,000 pound rating. Here's a good look at the brake assembly once we've got it installed on the vehicle. As you can see, we've got one, two, three, four and just behind the spindle is the fifth bolt that's going to hold it on.

That's really all there is to getting this on and off after you've got your hub removed. We'll go over that in just a minute. It's going to give you a 12-inch by 2-inch wide shoe. These are going to expand and they come out to make contact with your drum to give you your braking force. The big thing about these from Dexter is the never adjust system. It's the cable that's going to connect in here, comes over right to an adjuster, so that when you're backing up your trailer, your hub will be rotating rearward.

When this engages through electrical current, this is a magnet that engages on the hub and that's going to operate our brake shoes for us. As it does that, it also pulls our cable here, allowing our adjuster to click up to that next notch. What this does is reduces or virtually eliminates the need to ever have your brake shoes adjusted periodically, so that's going to save you some time and money. Also this is going to optimize your pad life, because they're not overadjusted where they're rubbing too hard, or they're not in so close that they're not making any contact, so it's going to provide us with additional safety and also some cost effectiveness so we won't be replacing the shoes quite so often. When the brakes are applied in the vehicle or manually through your brake controller, you send power to the rear. It charges the magnet here.

It's spring-loaded, so it's always going to make good contact with the drum itself. That engages with the magnetic current, which will then pull or push it, just depending on whether we're going forward or backward. That's going to expand our assembly, giving us the braking power that we want. Now these are connected with 2 wires. We'll have our ground wire and a power wire.

That's going to send the current into the magnet that we need. If you've already got electric brakes on your trailer, the wire should be ran so it's not going to be anything new that you're going to have to add. These will be labeled right hand or left hand assembly. The right hand goes on the passenger side, left hand is going to go over on the driver's side. Then we'll have all your spring hardware, all your shoes and the self-adjuster. It's also already going to be pre-wired, so basically after removing those 5 bolts, we'll pull that off, put our new one on and we'll be ready to start tightening them down as we got out. Now on the rear axle we've left everything just as the trailer rolled in so now we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. First things first, we're going to remove the knock-off cap that goes on the end. This is essentially a grease cap. There's a rubber cap here that allows us to get into our grease inaudible 00:02:40. We just want to get this out of the way using a rubber mallet. We're not going to be reusing it, so if we dent it or ding it up a little bit, it's not really a problem. The new hub that we're going to be putting on comes with a new cap. Now we can take some shop towels and start wiping out some of the grease that's inside of there. Believe it or not, behind all that gunk, there's going to be a cotter pin and a nut that we're going to remove. We'll just get enough out of there so we can just kind of see what's going on. Here you'll see our cotter pin. It's hiding in there. Here's the bottom of it, here's the top. Usually a pair of needle-nose will do a good job of getting this straightened out. You'll want to line those up and then we'll pull down here in the bottom, try to get it to come through. Here you can see the cotter pin that we removed. Most of the time you're going to bend them, twist them, or damage them. We could pop that back out, just kind of tap it with a hammer or flatten it back out. This would be about on the marginal side of salvageable, but you can certainly order a couple here at etrailer. That way if it does happen, you'll have them there and be able to take care of it. Now, here we have the larger hub nut and what we want to do is loosen that up. Once we have that off, we'll hold onto it, because we will be reusing it, as well as the washer that sits right in behind there. Now with those removed, right behind that washer's going to be our outside bearing. We're just going to kind of work this bearing out. Now, we are replacing the hub, so this bearing we're not going to be saving. If you're not replacing the hub, then you're going to want to save your bearings and you can just repack it with grease unless it's got some kind of damage or something to it. This one doesn't want to come out the easy way, so we're just going to kind of start wiggling our drum forward and it's going to try to fall out on the leg there. Now we'll take a second to just kind of clean this up. Here on the bearing, you can see we don't have any pitting in any of the rollers or anything like that. There's no signs of excessive wear like you'll see marring or you might see where metal has been in there. Also you want to look at your grease. Make sure your grease doesn't have any little pieces of metal in it because if it does, it's likely that your bearing at some point is coming out. Those will be a couple of easy ways to kind of look at your bearing and tell if it's got excessive wear, if it should be changed or not. If you do see wear on the bearing itself, the next thing you want to do is look at the race. The race is going to be just inside here. It's a slightly beveled area that runs all the way around our spindle. We'll also look at that surface. If it has any pits, any damage, or any kind of marring or anything like that, then the hub would also be something that you want to replace. Let me go ahead and take this the rest of the way off and let's look at the inside here. Now you can see where we have some grease and some grime that's made it to the inside of our hub. Now, for a standard electric brake replacement, you certainly wouldn't want to put this hub back on. You can see it's got a lot of grease and a lot of grime built up where our magnet's going to stick onto it there, so it's just not going to give us the braking power. We'll have this large seal right here. This would be the seal that you would want to replace. Certainly don't want any grease in our braking system. The hub we're using today is part number 8-201-9UC3-EZ. Now to determine if this is the right hub to use or if we need the one that has the slightly larger seal, we're going to measure right here on the spindle. See our spindle comes back, first bearing, second bearing and then that grease seal goes right around there. Now we're going to use kind of a dial caliper here, bring this in. You can see there that once I get this squared up, it sits right there at 2.1242.125. That means it's 2 1/8 inch. If it we're the 2 1/4 inch, it'd be an eighth inch bigger, and this measurement would be 2.25. It'd be right there, so very minimal difference. It's important to use a caliper if you have one available so we can get it exactly right for you and send out the right seal so it's going to work on your trailer. Now right up here on the back side of the brake assembly itself, we've got 2 wires that run out. Those are the wires that activate our magnet. We're going to go ahead and trim those, just let our excess hang down here until we need it. Now we'll remove the 5 bolts holding that on. Now most situations you're going to have a nut and then a lock nut behind that, I'm sorry, a lock washer behind that. The brake assemblies aren't going to come with new hardware, so you want to hang onto that, both the nut and the lock washer off of each stud. Let me just set those aside for reuse later. Now it's time to just give this a little wiggle and it'll come right off there for us. Now that we've got that out of the way, we can take this opportunity to really clean up the spindle, get all the grease and anything that was on there off. Once we get all that grease off, just inspect your spindle. Cool thing about the assembly is you're only going to be able to put it on there the right way. You see it says right hand. Your 2 lower bolt holes are spaced out enough to where they won't go on in the wrong position, so you just want to get those lined up. Then with those lined up, you'll see the 5 studs come right through that break for us. Then we can take each of our lock washers and slide those back on and we can start putting the nuts on. Then we'll tighten then down. Kind of like a tire, I like to do it in a star pattern. Now, before we slide our drum and our assembly on there, what we're going to do is just pull out on the little silver adjuster here on the rear. Then rotate this clockwise. That's our adjuster. What this is going to do is allow our brake shoes to kind of come in for now. Once we get everything on there, we'll make our initial adjustment, and then we'll never have to worry about that again. You can see our 2 wires that we've got that we're originally on our trailer. We need to get just a little more room with those to work. Just pull that back, trim that off. Then we can strip the ends. Spin the end on each one of those, slide on our butt connectors. Now, these are heat shrink butt connectors, a really good idea if you're doing any wiring outside of the trailer to use heat shrink and then also wrap them up with a little electrical tape when you're done. We do carry these heat shrink butt connectors on our website. You can find details on them there. After we get our connection made there, always push and pull on it and make sure you've got a good bite. The last thing you want's those to come undone while you're heading down the road. All right, looking good there. Now, you can use a heat gun, you can use a little mini torch, or what we've got here is just a regular old lighter. We'll just heat those up and get them to shrink down. Now, if you're going to use a lighter, use the blue part of the flame if you can. It won't put any of that black carbon kind of build-up stuff on there. Now as far as the wiring goes, it doesn't matter too much whether you put the white one on the left side, white one on the right side. We're just looking to pass current through that magnet so it operates. We just want it going in one and coming out the other. It doesn't matter which one. Now we'll take our electrical tape and I'm going to go around that as well, just to kind of give us a little extra vapor barrier here. We don't want any moisture getting in there if we can help it. Now, also with the hub assembly, you're going to have your seals, your bearings, your lug nuts, new dust cap for the end. It's in two separate bags. What I like to do is take this bag and just lay it down on the ground. Then we'll take this bag, just kind of unload it onto that bag. See your dust cap, dust cover and then the lug nuts. I'm going to put those all together. Then here you'll see our 2 bearings. See our smaller one for the outside, our larger one for the inside. It's going to have that center section that stays put while this allows our tire to freely spin. This gives you an idea of what a brand new bearing looks like, what the rollers look like on it, so if you're not doing a hub replacement, you want it to look pretty much like this except it'll have some grease in it. You're going to grab a wad of grease, put it in the palm of our hand, then we're going to pack our bearing. Now, you can use a bearing packer. Sometimes they work great, sometimes they don't. What we're going to do is take the end that has the larger gap in it. It's usually the larger side of the bearing. We'll stick it around our index finger and we're just going to start working grease into that slot and pushing it up through the rollers. Then when properly greased in that area, you see that 1, 2, and 3, those little shoots of grease that have kind of come up through. That's going to let you know that you've got it past all the way through. All right. Now, once we've got that fully packed up, we'll just clean up the excess and that outside bag that we we're setting stuff on, makes a great spot for that to rest. Got the smaller one done, we'll do the bigger one. The bigger one of course is going to hold a little bit more grease than the smaller one did. All right. Now we've got our new hub assembly. We're going to take a handful of our grease here. This is going to go down inside. There's going to be a little gap kind of all the way around the outside. We just want to fill that up, and then any grease that we might have got outside of that hole, let's clean that off. Now if you happen to drop a big wad of grease down in there or something, not a big deal. A little bit of Brakleen can get that off. You don't want to use carbon choke cleaner. That's got a lubricant in it, so keep that in mind. Now our larger bearing is going to sit right down inside, just like that. Then this is the seal. Now, this is the one that's the 2 1/8 inch. Some of these do require 2 1/4. That's where you have to measure. Now if didn't want to wait, if you didn't want to pull one off, measure and wait for your parts to come, you can order the kit, which will have the 2 1/8 inch seal kit in it and then also order a 2 1/4 inch set of seals so you've got your bases covered. Now we're going to set that down with the plastic lip to be facing us. Then we'll just lightly tap all the way around the outside and you'll hear it. It'll kind of change tones right when it starts. Once we hear that change a little bit, that's when we get our block of wood. We go all the way around, just like that, so it's seated firmly and then one more time, go around it to clean it up just like that. Now this is ready to go up onto our brake assembly. We'll just bring that up. You can kind of just bring the spindle right through the center there. It'll go back on. As you can see it's nice and loose. That's why we loosened up that brake kit a little bit. That way this is going to go on there without big issues. Then later we can readjust that out when we get our initial settings done. We've got our smaller bearing we're going to place in there. This is going to be just the reverse of when we took it off, just using the new parts. Then we'll get our washer put back into place and also thread on that nut that we removed. Now we'll tighten that nut down until it stops. We'll hear we've got good contact, it doesn't roll too much, and then we'll line up our cotter pin hole. To do that we're going to back off the nut until it lines up with our hole location. We'll place our cotter pin in and sometimes they'll go in real easily. This one's kind of a curve setup, so this one's going to want to kind of spread out on us some. We'll take our cotter pin, place it in and just kind of tap it into place with the easy lube style that we're using here. It kind of goes in and it turns and it comes down so sometimes it can be kind of a bear to get in there. We'll just kind of take it easy with it. You'll see we'll get it inside the outer rim there and you'll see here at the bottom the 2 legs of that that have come out. Now we'll just take our needle-nose and bend those opposite directions of each other, just like that. Now let's put our dust cap on. It's like we took it off, a little rubber mallet is probably the best thing for the job. Just kind of tap it around the outside and try to get it to go on in there. You kind of hear it there. It's going to change pitch once we've got it all the way and seated in against it. Now we'll take our grease gun, put it right on the grease zerk that goes on the end and start adding some. Now with the easy lube hubs here, we want to add it nice and slow, spin it and try to help it go all the way around. Now you can see here, all the way around the outside, that ring of grease that we've now got there. That wasn't there before, so as we add grease in, it's going to fill up, fill up and fill up. Once it's visible all the way around there, we'll know we've got plenty in there. Now we've got our dust cover that's going to fit in the end of that cap or maybe that dust cap that's going to fit in the end of the dust cover, whichever way you want to say it. We'll just press that in, let it slide in that groove, and now we can put the tire back on. Now if you've got a new hub, like we've done today, you're going to have new lug nuts that'll come with it. If you're just doing the brake replacement, then you won't have the new lug nuts. You'll have to reuse your old ones. All right, now that we've got that on, we can check it out. We're going to hear our brakes. As you can see, it's spinning a little too freely, so we need to make that initial adjustment we talked about and tighten that up some. Now here on the back side, you'll see that we've got 2 oblong holes. We're going to be focusing on the one closest to the rear here, but inside you'll see that yellow spring, and also that silver lever that was on that adjuster. Remember when we had the hub off, we showed that to you. Now what we're going to do is reach in there and we're going to push that wheel away from us so it'll go counter-clockwise and it's going to expand those pads out or those shoes out. We'll adjust it a few times, check our tire. If it still spins too freely, we'll adjust it a little bit more. Yeah, see how that still allows us to spin nice and free, but it's going to stop the tire pretty quickly before it would make a full rotation all the way around. Then you always want to remember when you're done to torque your wheels down to whatever specification the manufacturer of your hub's deemed for you. All right, now with that torqued down, now all you have to do is repeat that same process on the other 3 remaining tires, and everything will be back better than it was when it was new. Now with everything put back together and our wheels back on, that's going to complete today's installation of the Never Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for the left and right hand side. Part number for the left is 23-464, for right, part number is 23-465 on our car-hauling trailer. .

Product was an exact fit. Much easier than fighting springs and hold downs even with the right tools. It took about 45 min. per wheel start to finish. Etrailer was very helpful when ordering parts. 559806

Easy installation, 5 nuts & 2 wires. NO more messing with brake adjustments. Changing just shoes is a lot of work, if you need shoes you probably need magnets/actuators too so for just a few $$ more you can get the entire assembly and save a ton of work! 351370

I had the brake lining shatter off of one of the shoes. This happened within the first 100 miles after putting the new brakes on. Tore the drum up beyond repair. Working on getting the brakes replaced under warranty but I had to ship them the parts back first. Trailer is up on blocks until then. 377801

I was worried about putting brakes back together, this is an easy repair with only 5 nuts to put on and rewire. Information on getting the right or left brake was very good and made this an easy project. 480728

Plug and play, towed a large 5th wheel with brakes that didn't work for years decided to try this , worked great!, Had Each wheel done in about 20 minutes I'll never just replace brake shoes Again... buy the kit bolt it on,,, walk away. Bought two more for the rear axle, if I don't have to crawl underneath and adjust them every Thousand Miles that will be icing on the cake 472362

Order was received timely. I had questions regarding a possible design change going from two spring to single spring. I contacted customer service and they replied swiftly. Not being sure of the answer the customer service rep. Conner contacted the manufacturer to determine proper answer. All is good , apparently Dexter has changed from 2 spring to single spring at the top. The attached pictures show what I am referring to. Look at the wiring in the faulty picture. Of course pulling the hub was my last thing I looked at. Hence why I was getting a ground short and no brakes. etrailer customer service get A+++ 549345

I discovered my brakes on the right side of my trailer were not working by feeling the drums after driving just 2 miles. They were cold, other side hot. Took apart and found no adjusters on ether wheel. Just part of adjuster spring on one wheel. Magnets were warn. So I just replaced the whole brake plate, cheeped and faster. They work great now. This I believe was caused by a blowout. 605757

Great price for a complete brake replacement. Way easier and not much more than just replacing the shoes. I upgraded from the 6000# that were on my fifth wheel to these 7000# ones. Also like the self adjusting feature. 374611

Great service at a very reasonable price. From the person that took my order to tech support I couldn't be happier. I had a question and tech support called me back promptly on a Saturday afternoon with all the right answers. This is a good company and has earned my repeat business. 367351

Replacement for 6000 lbs. original equipment brakes. Hoping for more stopping power as I usually tow near the limit of the trailer. Installation was easy and straight-forward. First impression is not much different but of course new brakes need to be burnished. The effectiveness is sure to increase. Overall happy :) 359647

Ordered lots of parts on Monday, received most of them by Thursday. The received parts were well packaged and undamaged. A few of the parts they didn't have in stock so they had those drop-shipped to me which should be delivered in the next couple of days. No supplier I have ordered any parts from has such a great technical reference web site or personal customer support. Yea, Rebecca - Well Done! Yes, I'm very happy with the pricing. Thanks for your great support and I look forward to doing business with them again. More info to follow as soon as I can get the parts installed on my trailer. 325527

  • 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...

  • Replacement Self-Adjusting 12-1/4 x 3-3/8-Inch Electric Drum Trailer Brakes to Replace 023-451-00
  • Brake part 023-451-00 refers to a right-hand Dexter electric drum brake for 9K and 10K-rated axles. The brake dimensions are 12-1/4-inch diameter and 3-3/8-inch width. We do offer this size of brake in 8K, 9K and 10K axle capacities in the self-adjusting variety; these are shown on the linked page. The best value among all is the 10K-rated etrailer Axle Teknology brake pair # AKEBRK-10. These drum brakes work with wheels from 15-inches up to 17-1/2-inches. These use a 7-bolt mounting...

  • Best Electric Brake Assemblies for 7,000 Pound Rockwell Axle
  • For your 7,000 pound axle the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-465 for the Right Hand and # 23-464 for the Left Hand will provide you with the best and most reliable setup. Dexter is well known in the industry for their USA made trailer brakes and they been doing it for over 50 years. These particular 12 x 2 inch assemblies feature a Nev-R-Adjust design that eliminate the need to perform any periodic manual adjustments after the initial install (they simply adjust...

  • How To Initially Set Up The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brakes On A Trailer
  • 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...

  • Dexter Brake Assembly Recommendations to Replace Part Number 023-357-00
  • 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.

  • Will Dexter Brake Assemblies Fit on a Lippert Axle
  • You will have no problem using a Dexter brake assembly on a Lippert 7K axle. We have installed several Dexter brake assemblies on Lippert axles at our shop. Lippert and Dexter use the same standard mounting pattern and brake sizes. If you want standard brake assemblies, you could go with the Right Hand brake # 23-181 and the Left Hand brake # 23-180. I recommend stepping up to the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes, # 23-465 and # 23-464. The cost difference is very minimal compared to the standard...

  • Which is Best: Dexter, Tekonsha, or etrailer.com Brake Assemblies
  • The three brands of brake assemblies are made by different companies. None of them are made by each other. It might seem strange but if it were my trailer I would install Dexter assemblies. They have the best reputation because they are designed well and use high quality components. You really can't beat Dexter's axle components. For a 7k rated axle the best setup around is going to be the Dexter self adjusting assemblies part # 23-465 for the right hand side and part # 23-464 for the...

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for Dexter 7k Automatic Adjusting Assemblies
  • The brake assemblies you have are Dexter 12 inch assemblies with a 7k capacity. 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.

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for 2014 Heartland Road Warrior
  • Since you said the padsd are worn thin it's most likely time to replace them to get your stopping power back. For that we have the part # 23-465 for a replacement right hand side and part # 23-464 for replacement left hand side. Based on the numbers I see in the picture you attached this is the correct set you'd need. Also, since replacing brake pads typically costs about the same as just replacing the entire assemblies it makes more sense to just replace the assemblies all together....

  • Brand New 7k Dexter Brake Assemblies on Trailer are Not Strong Enough
  • Whether you have the 7K Dexter brake assemblies like part # 23-181 or like the Nev-R-Adjust # 23-465, you may simply need to adjust the brakes. Even if your brake controller is set to the highest setting, if your brakes are not adjusted properly then they will not perform correctly. You can adjust your brakes using the Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630 until they are set at the desired braking strength. If you check out the attached review video you can see the access holes...

  • Can Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies Replace Standard Brake Assemblies
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-464 and # 23-465 will work great as replacements for the exiting Dexter brake assemblies # 23-180 and # 23-181 on your trailer. The # 23-464 and # 23-465 are designed to fit 7,000 pound axles and do not require manual adjustment. I have attached an installation video as well as an initial setup review video for you to check out.

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies for 7,000 Pound Trailer Axle, 2009 Heartland Bighorn 3370RL
  • It is best to confirm the axle capacity before purchasing brake assemblies. There should be a sticker or label on the axles with information such as their capacity. If you do find that your axles are 7,000 pound axles, I recommend using the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, left hand side # 23-464 and right hand side # 23-465. These brake assemblies automatically adjust to provide optimum performance and braking power. In addition to eliminating the need for brake...

  • 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.

  • Dexter Nev-R-Adjust 6K and 7K Electric Brake Assembly
  • The Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for 6K pound axles # 23-459, # 23-458 and the brake assembly for the 7K pound axles # 23-464, # 23-465 are interchangeable in that both are mounted on a 5-bolt pattern and would fit on 12 inch hub/drums. However, the 7K brake has a stronger magnet and upgraded brake shoes with greater stopping power than the 6K. Even though they would fit, you would not want to put the 6K Nev-R-Adjust # 23-459, # 23-458 on a trailer with a 7K pound axle....

  • Can I Put Different Hub Assembly on 5th Wheel
  • It looks like your 5th Wheel currently is a Nev-R-Lube Hub and Drum Assembly for 7,000 lbs Axles with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern # 8-385-81SP. This is the assembly that you will want to order for your 5th Wheel. I have included a video review of this assembly for you to check out. I spoke with my contact at Dexter and she said you cannot replace your Nev-R-Lube assembly with a standard hub and drum assembly because the bearings and spindle are different. For an electric brake assembly...

  • 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.

  • Can Manual Adjusting Brakes Be Swapped out for Self-Adjusting Brakes
  • Yes, the self-adjusting version of the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-181 is the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-465. This assembly is for the right hand side and if you need the left hand side you can use part # 23-464 or part # 23-464-465 for both right and left hand side. The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit has self-adjusting brakes meaning you do not have to turn the adjuster screw for even brake pad wear after the initial...

  • Replacement 12 inch Brake Assemblies for Trailer with 8 Lug Rims
  • Based on the info you gave me we can get pretty close on what weight capacity your axles are. The capacity is important so that you get brakes that are properly rated. It looks like you have axles that are 5,200-7,000 lb rated. For replacement assemblies that are self-adjusting and would work great the part # 23-459 for the right hand side and part # 23-458 would be an excellent option for if you have a 6k rated axle. For 7k instead you would need the part # 23-465 and # 23-464 instead. Up...

  • Replacement Grease Cap Plugs, Bearings and Brakes for 2005 Big Tex 14GN Trailer

We do offer replacement bearings, bearing kits and brake components as well. Complete bearing kits for 7K axles can be seen on the link provided. Both use inner bearing 25580 and outer bearing 14125A. Kit # BK3-210 includes a seal with an I.D. of 2.125-inches and kit # BK3-200 uses a seal with an I.D. of 2.250-inches. Individual...

  • How To Determine Replacement Brake Drums and Assemblies for Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • To choose the correct replacement Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies, I'd need to know the inside diameter and depth of your existing brake drums. In order to recommend replacement drums, I'd need to know the inner and outer bearings used by your current hubs and the wheel bolt pattern of your wheels. I'd also need to know the inside diameter of the inner hub bore and the diameter of the spindle where the grease seal rides. These measurements need to be accurate to three decimal places, using...

  • What Gauge Wire Should be Used to Wire Up Trailer Brake Assemblies
  • I would strongly recommend going with heavier wire for the brake output circuit to your assemblies. 16 gauge is way too thin. I would recommend a 10 gauge wire like the part # 10-1-1 that is sold by the foot. I admit the designation for left or right hand assemblies is a bit confusing. But if you can remember that the actuating arm that holds the brake magnet should always be in front of the spindle then you can easily determine which side assembly you have.

  • Weak Brake Troubleshooting and Replacement Brake Assemblies for 7k Trailer Axle
  • There are a couple things you should check before you would want to replace your brake assemblies. I would check the main ground for the trailer. This is the wire that runs from the trailer connector to the trailer frame and provides the ground for the entire trailer. The ground strap may have come loose and now may not be strong enough to fully apply the trailer brakes. Some brake assemblies are manually adjusted. They could very easily be in need of adjustment.

  • Will Hydraulic Brake Hubs Work With Electric Brakes
  • My contact at Dexter said that the hubs will be the same for hydraulic and electric brakes on their 7,000 pound axle. For electric brakes for your 7,000 pound axles, I recommend the 12 Inch Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-465 for the right hand side and # 23-464 for the left hand side. These brake assemblies do not require any manual adjustments to be made, they automatically adjust to deliver optimum performance. I have attached an installation video of these brakes...

  • Is there a Difference Between Dexter 6k and 7k Rated 12x2 Electric Brake Assemblies
  • 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.

  • 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...

You are correct in your question when you stated that you will want to simply turn the wheel backwards on the brake assembly until you get just a slight drag. I have attached a video demonstration on the initial setup for these assemblies that you may find helpful. I recommend pulling the hub on your trailer to make sure everything is still properly in place...
