Made in USA product, first off. Form Fit Function, awesome. The product came lubricated ready to install with lithium grease on the friction areas. I ran these on my trailer for ten years. I never adjusted the brakes one time after the installation. I haul heavy, and often. These brakes are the best for your money. Etrailer is quick and courteous staff that changed my order over the phone per my request to add additional items to the order. This is an easy to wire in item. I solder in my connections, never had to go and do them again. Great part hope to get ten more years out of these ones too.

This product has been on my trailer for more than a year. They are broke in and stopping great. still no adjustment since the installation.

Bought 4 sets of these never adjust brakes, converting my 7500 lb trailer from surge hydraulic to truck controlled electric. Easy bolt on and wire conversion. One note of caution: They are called never adjust but should be called "one time adjust". If you fail to get the shoes close to adjusted at install you might get "service trailer brake" notification, as I did. Adjusted the brakes until a slight drag was felt spinning the wheel and all's well. Good price and fast delivery


Comments
Brakes still work great after one year and a few thousand miles. Way better than surge brakes, especially if youre backing up a hill.

I have a five and half year old travel trailer with electric brakes. I noticed I had a hub that was intermittently getting hot. I know a little about bearings going bad but realized it was probably the brakes getting old and hanging up. I decided based on the price of these assembled backing plates that doing this full replacement on all four with new tires was good insurance. I order the stuff carefully (including new nuts and washers) on Sunday evening. It was delivered to my house on Friday afternoon all in good order. I had already taken the wheels to the tire store for replacement and removed the hubs. Saturday morning I started working and by the end of the afternoon I had new brakes, regreased bearings, replaced seals, and mounted new tires on my trailer. I did change the bearings on the hub that was getting hot. Just new seals on the others. The information on E Trailer made it easier to order online than to purchase at a local trailer parts house.

Last Saturday, after several weeks of research, my wife and I purchased a trailer. It had everything we wanted except for brakes. I asked the dealer if they could install brakes, he said it would take weeks if not longer for him to get the parts and then he would have to arrange for them to be installed. I told the dealer that I had already done some preliminary research on eTrailer.com for brake parts. On a long shot, I asked the dealer if he could beat eTrailer.com prices for the brake parts and if so I would install. To the dealer's credit, he told me I would be much better off getting the brake parts I needed on my own. So, late Sunday evening I went onto the eTrailer.com website. After taking a couple of measurements to ensure I was ordering the correct parts, I placed the order. Their website is user friendly and intuitive, and the tutorial videos are excellent. Early Monday morning I got a message from one of eTrailer's employees notifying me that my parts had shipped. He also offered his services if I needed anything further or if I had any questions. I did have questions, so I called him, I wanted to confirm that I had ordered the correct bolt pattern for the hub/drums. Within a couple of minutes we confirmed that I had taken the correct measurements. The reassuring part was, he said if you find the hub/drums are not the correct ones, let me know and we will get a return label out to you and get the correct parts out to you. By early Thursday afternoon the parts had arrived. I had already watched the installation tutorial video that is on their website. Following the video process, the install was straight forward and PAINLESS. This company is so refreshing!


Comments
Thanks for the follow up. For almost 10 years now, I have been very happy with the service, products and value that I get from etrailer. So much so, that I refer friends and family to your website as their needs arise. As the mechanic in the family, and around the neighborhood, I often have people approach me for help. Several times a year I find myself referencing etrailers website to find a part we need or that will make a job easier to complete. Additionally, I CANT SAY ENOUGH how helpful etrailers on line video library has been with installations and to help answer questions or trouble shoot problems. I really appreciate that etrailer would take the time and resources to build such a library to help their customers.

Brakes work great! I used a self tapping screw to ground the brake to the trailer. This worked really well and I didn't need to run a ground wire. The studs needed a trip to the hardware store to get some 7/16 by 40 pitch (fine thread) nylock nuts. All in all a nice brake setup.

They went on fairly easy, adjusted well and seemed to work. They did work just not as well as I thought they would. I took a 5000 mile trip through mountains, all kinds of weather and down the highway and the trailer stayed behind. I haven't had time yet to check and see if the automatic adjustment was working by checking the adjustment. A lot easier to replace the complete unit than just parts which may have been wore out. I did the brakes, drums and bearings at the seem time.

Like I thought the automatic adjusters don’t work as well as the ones on my vehicles. They still need to be checked at least once a year.

My 2012 travel trailer came equipped with 1-3/4” wide brakes, which is not a common size. When it was time to do maintenance I went to etrailer.com because of the wealth of information and advice available. After reading the information it became obvious that the best course of action would be to upgrade to 10 x 2-1/4” brakes and hubs. My supplies arrived in good shape, with the Dexter boxes inside of other boxes from etrailer. After watching helpful videos I installed the new brakes in a day. Things went smoothly, installing new complete brake sets is so much easier than messing around with individual parts, and probably about the same cost. Now came time to wear in the brakes and check things out. Beware that it is really tempting to not wait long enough for the brakes to cool in between evolutions where you apply them hard and go from 40 to 20 MPH. They can get pretty hot. The end result is that now we have much more braking power, the braking is smoother, and we have confidence in our ability to stop which is priceless. Not having to adjust our brakes is a plus. We are very pleased with our Dexter never adjust brakes and especially pleased with the exceptional customer service and expert advice from etrailer. Add in the price guarantee and dealing with them is truly a no-brainer.

I am very happy with these replacement brake assemblies. I needed to replace the brakes on my camper and I decided to upgrade them from the manually adjusted style to these self-adjusting ones. Now I know my camper brakes will always be working at their best. Easy to install on my AL-KO 3500# axles. Be sure to order the recommended mounting nuts so you do not need to reuse them. Remember to order new adjuster plugs since they do not come with these brake assemblies. Even though the pictures make them seam like they are included. Needless to say, I had to order some after-the-fact. My old ones used one plug each and these require two each. My old ones were aged enough that I did not want to reuse them. They did not come with any electrical connectors, but that did not bother me since I used heat shrink butt connectors anyways. It is just easier to get them adjusted close when you put the hubs back on. If you have drop spindles like me, you cannot tweak them through the adjuster holes. I could not get a screw driver or brake adjuster spoon tool to work around my drop spindles, so I just popped the hub off and tweaked the one brake assembly that seemed two tight when I did a test spin with the wheel in the air.

hey Matt Ive never used electric brakes nor have I ever used this new style you are talking of which is on the trailer that I am pulling do I need to set anything on my truck built in I have a brake controller do I need to set the numbers on it or is it just ditself
-- comment by: Dave E - 10/04/2014

A factory integrated brake controller will need to be adjusted for your particular trailer. There should be a section in the owner's manual on how to adjust the controller. It will need to be adjusted each time you tow a trailer of a different size or weight, unless it has programable memory settings. You may also need to adjust the brakes themselves on the trailer. Yolu want a slight, even amount of drag all the way around as you rotate the hub by hand.

This is the exact brake assembly that came on my trailer when it was new (18ft aluminum car hauler by R and R Trailers of Three Rivers MI) . Same part from the same manufacturer. I purchased 4 new ones because after 3 years of non-marine use, one of the brake linings came off and locked up one of the trailer wheels causing it to flat spot one of the tires bad enough to require the tire's replacement. Shipping: I received them very quickly. But of the 4 assemblies ordered, 2 of them had damaged wiring due to poor packaging by the seller. I considered sending them back, but because I needed to use the trailer soon, I simply repaired the damaged wires and installed them. Removal: This is not easy or fun. Each of the brake assemblies is held on with 4 mounting studs and nuts. These nuts are 7/16-20 i.e fine thread, which are not included. This wasn't really a problem except that these nuts were not in stock at my local Home Depot, Lowe's, or Tractor Supply. After driving all over the place looking for the mounting nuts, I finally found them at Fastenal. Removing the existing brakes was a nightmare. After soaking the existing mounting nuts in PB Blaster, I tried to remove them to find that they were so difficult to get off that they actually caused the studs to break free from where they had been pressed into the backing plate and just spin freely. Of the 16 mounting studs (4 studs x 4 brake assemblies) only 3 of them actually came off and the rest had to be cut off. This pretty much took all day to accomplish. Again, the existing trailer brakes were the *identical* brake assemblies that I purchased, but with 3 years of highway use. I would expect this much difficulty if it was on a boat trailer due to the regular submersion in water, but I would expect less corrosion on a car hauler. Installation: Once I had cut off the existing brake assemblies, Installation was not very difficult. Before I mounted them, I took them down to my local welder and had him tack weld the studs in place so that they wouldn't break free from the backing plate when/if I ever needed to remove these again. I anti-seized the studs and mounted them to the trailer & connected the wiring. I had to reuse the star wheel access port plugs because they did not come with new plugs. I think this is an ok product considering that these brake assemblies adjust themselves as the shoes wear down, and I find this greatly superior to the other method of having to adjust them yourself. I would actually still consider purchasing these brakes again, even after all that. My complaints are as follows: - shoe failure after 3 years of highway use resulting in tire failure - damaged wiring due to poor packaging - lack of mounting nuts and the difficulty in finding new ones - lack of new access port plugs, - *especially* the poor quality of the backing plate and studs A product with a "made in USA" label just shouldn't have this many issues with it.

I love dealing with etrailer! I can only say good things about the service, quick delivery, and products. I really like all the videos available for the products they sell. I received these brake assemblies very quickly and my son and I swapped out all four on my tool trailer including new hubs in less than 4 hours. They are working great. Thank you!

Heads up!! ordered 4 sets of hub, drums and brakes over two years ago for a project I've been slowly working on. when I received the items, I noticed the packaging was damaged and reported it to etrailer. 2 years later, I finally went to use the items and discovered the bearings, caps and races had been damaged. I notified the management at etrailer and within a week had complete replacements. What company in this day and age is willing to stand behind a damage claim two years on? Truly remarkable customer service and willingness to go the extra mile. etrailer, You've won me forever as a devoted and satisfied customer. you guys are rock stars! Thank You.

Generally speaking the product seems like a good buy. I looked at the different options at Etrailer and decided on the Dexter units even though they were slightly higher - made in USA. My package of parts arrived 3 days after ordering - a good deal considering the freight cost was $0. One of the brake assemblies had the self adjuster knocked halfway of in spite of the stiff spring hold it together to the shoes. I suspect this happened during shipment and due to bulk packing the 4 assemblies in a box. I would suggest that Etrailer warn their customers to look at their parts carefully upon receipt. I also was concerned about one of the 7/16" mounting studs being knocked out. I found the stud in the carton and reset it into the backing plate and did not have any issues in the installation. All in all the process went well from ordering to installation. I appreciated all of the helpful videos on line that helped with the ordering process and gave me a heads up on making sure to order nuts, washers and plugs for the adjusting ports. I would have given the review a 5 except for the packaging which could stand a little improvement.

Kathy went far beyond what she had to do, in order to get my company trailers back on the road. She got us the Dexter hub assemblies shipped out promptly and at a great price. We still had to find an axle, bc they were out of stock.. But Kathy directed us to a few other competitors. One of which helped us out with that. Thank you very much. Weve had nothing but trouble with chinese parts failing, constantly. Never had a problem with Dexter parts tho. BUY DEXTER brand. Or buy 2 or 3 chinese parts as backup. Your choice.

The brake pads we received from etrailer.com were EXACTLY what we were looking for. The installation was simple and went very well. Nice product. My trailer is 20 years old and these brakes did the job. Also, we went from standard brakes to self-adjusting so no maintenance is necessary. We can now go camping! The staff at etrailer (Katie G) were so helpful. We were desperate for the product and she made sure we got the brakes within 3 days. Amazing! Thank you so much. We will definitely use etrailer.com again.

  • 12 x 2 Inch Electric Trailer Brakes with a 4 Bolt Mounting Pattern
    The 4-bolt brake mounting pattern is fairly rare in a 12 x 2 inch assembly. We have some options though; for 6K axles we have # 23-105-09 for the left and # 23-106-09 for the right. The 4-bolt pattern on these assemblies is offset meaning the bottom 2 holes are closer together than the top 2 holes. If that is what you have then either set listed above would work. I have linked videos on each of these types of brakes for you.

You cannot get any grease on the pads or on the inside of the drum because that will have a negative impact on brake performance. The magnet arm and the shoes pivot at a single point each. You can use just some wheel bearing grease such as # L11380 at those locations. Ideally you would completely wipe away any grease prior to adding new grease. It will not take much and that tub of grease, listed above,...

  • Weak Trailer Brakes on a Triple Axle Road Warrior 5th Wheel Trailer
    Do all three axles on the trailer have brakes? If not then adding brakes to the axle(s) without brakes would increase the braking power. That is assuming that the brake controller is rated for up to 6 brake assemblies. If an axle does not have brakes then the first thing to check is if it has brake mounting flanges. I have linked an article that will help identify the parts needed to add electric drum brakes. You may also need to adjust the brakes using the adjustment spoon # W80630....

  • How to Determine if Trailer Has Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies
    If your current brake assemblies are self-adjusting, once the hub/drum is removed you will be able to see the adjuster cable extending across the brake assembly as shown in the photo I have edited for you. If you find you do not have them, you can certainly replace your existing brake assemblies. You will need to initially adjust the brake assemblies, but after that they will be self adjusting. I have linked you to a video showing how to adjust brake assemblies, click the link and fast...

  • Replacement Brakes For 2000 Coleman Utah Pop-Up Camper
    You did not say whether you have electric or hydraulic brakes on your 2000 Coleman Utah camper. You will need to know a few details when choosing replacement brake assemblies. There should be a plate or sticker on the axle with the weight rating. You will need both the left and right brakes that match the brakes you currently have. You will need to know the diameter and width of the brakes, and the mounting bolt pattern. I have attached a link to the 10-inch brakes you can check out. We...

  • Torque Specs For Mounting Brake Assemblies To Brake Mounting Flange
    I called my contact at Dexter about the 10 inch Nev-R-Adjust brakes like part # 23-468. They told me when you are installing the brake assemblies to the brake mounting flange, the torque should be between 45 and 50 ft lbs.

  • When Braking, Trailer Pulls Hard to One Side and Causes Sway
    It does sound like the previous owner did not install the assemblies correctly. An easy way to make sure you have the brakes on correctly is to lock at the actuating arm. It should always point towards the front of the trailer. I have included a picture showing what I mean. It sounds like the previous owner got a bunch of assemblies all the same so you have some left side brakes on the right side. The adjustment wheel is supposed to make contact with the spring. That is what it is...

  • Can a Trailer Without Brakes Have Electric Brakes Installed
    There is a way to install electric brakes on a trailer like yours that does not have them. I attached a help article that will walk you through the entire process, but basically you will first need to determine what spindles you have on your trailer so that you can determine what hub/drums would fit and then piece it together from that point. If you do not have a brake controller picked out for your tow vehicle I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Drum Brakes to 6 x 12 Single-Axle Trailer
    Adding electric drum brakes to your single-axle trailer requires a few components, including brake flanges, brakes, hub/drums, wiring, a breakaway kit and a brake controller. Each of these is detailed in the linked article which covers the entire process.

  • Will P2 Brake Controller Apply Trailer Brakes when Going Down Steep Hills
    The P2 brake controller, # 90885, is a proportional controller that will apply the trailer brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. So if you have your foot on the brake pedal, even a little, it will send voltage back to the trailer brakes. The controller uses an accelerometer to sense deceleration and will not apply the brakes just because the trailer and vehicle are pointed up or down a hill like what could happen on old pendulum style brake controllers. This is...
