I had a dragging brake. When I disassembled, found bottom adjuster was dislodged and unattached spring. Magnet was very much melted. I reassembled the brake assembly good enough to travel to final designation. I ordered this brake assembly, p/N 23-465 for passenger side forward axle and it fit perfectly. I've driven approximately 3,000 miles since repair without issue. I highly recommend this product and company 765250

  • Difference Between Brake Assemblies for 7,000 lb Axle
    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. There is an economy version of these as well: - Self-Adjusting: Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # AKEBRK-7-SA -...

  • 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...

    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 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...

  • 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...

  • Dexter 7,000 lb Rated Brake Assembly Recommendation for Trailer
    Dexter would be the final authority on the capacities of their axles. 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. What you described is not uncommon for Dexter axles. There are other instances where the difference between the capacities of two axle setups is either the assemblies or the hubs they put on them.

  • Dexter Hubs and Brake Assemblies for 7,000 lb Lippert Axles on 2017 Jayco Pinnacle
    Dexter self adjusting brake assemblies can replace Lippert assemblies. For that you'd only need the # 23-464 for the left hand side and part # 23-465 for the right hand side. Then for a Dexter hub that fits your axle we have the part # 42866UC3-EZ which is a 7k hub that fits your spindle.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Brake Assembly Recommendation for 2004 Fleetwood Prowler Regal 32'
    Best option is to match the part number you found on your trailer. Realistically the 6k and 7k brake assemblies are mostly interchangeable as they both are 12 inch diameter by 2 inch width so either would technically fit, but going with the correct rating gives you a setup that's easiest to fine tune braking power. If you go with an assembly rated too high the magnet is more sensitive and you'll find that the brakes are harder to get the exact amount of braking power. It'll either feel...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Brake Assembly for 2007 Newman with 7k Axles
    The simplest replacement brake assembly solution we have for your 2007 Newman with 7,000 lb axles is the part # 23-465 for the right hand side and part # 23-464 for the left hand side. These are self adjusting too which means you won't have to worry about ever needing to tighten them up.

  • Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brakes Not Working on Camper
    The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, such as # 23-465, require an initial adjustment, as you have done already. 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...

  • Brakes With Factory Brake Controller Does Not Engage
    When you hear the buzzing sound when the brakes are applied, that sound is power going back to the brakes, or at least part of the way, lets get this issue corrected. Since you have a factory brake controller, first we need to make sure that both the 7-Way on your tow vehicle and your trailer are fully functioning. Start off by looking for any corrosion build-up that could be causing the issue on both 7-ways and clean it. Next, test the functions of the 7-Way on your tow vehicle you...

  • Are New Brake Drums Required When Installing New Dexter Brake Assemblies
    If the hub/drums are in good shape there's no need to replace them when doing new assemblies like the part # 23-465 and # 23-464 which are the correct self adjusting brake assemblies for a 7k Dexter axle.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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. 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...

I gave my contact at Dexter Axle the serial number off of your tag and he said that the replacement brakes for your #12 torsion axle include part # 23-180 for the left hand side and part # 23-181 for the right hand side. 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. The advantage to the Nev-R-Adjust assemblies is that you don't have to manually adjust...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

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.
