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. 806752

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. 797433

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. 792673

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 714278

Kathy was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She sent me several troubleshooting tips for me to try before spending the money for the complete brake plates. After the testing I ordered the complete assemblies, they were promptly shipped to me. They were very easy to install I haven’t taken the trailer out to test the new assemblies yet but will do that either today or tomorrow Highly recommend the company for tour trailer needs 702904

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. 656121

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Accessories and Parts

  • Parts Needed to Convert From Surge to Electric Brakes
    The backing plate you are referring to is, I'm assuming, the brake mounting flange, which should be welded on. The dimensions of this are extremely important because it will determine the brake assemblies that fit. The Demco Trailer Brake Mounting Flange # DM60124 has a 2-3/4" pilot hole and has a 4 on 4-13/16" bolt pattern. This is uncommon compared to Brake Mounting Flange # 4-35 which is for 2-3/8" round axles and has 4 bolt holes which are 2-7/8" apart on center, which is what you...

  • What is the Wire Gauge of the Magnets for 10" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for 3.5K Axles
    The magnet wires are brake assembly # 23-468 are 16 gauge. When it comes to wiring for electric trailer brake magnets you can attach a larger gauge wire to the smaller brake magnet wire. Ten gauge wire is commonly used in trailer manufacturing for electric brakes even if the short wires from the magnets are smaller.

  • 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.

  • How To Troubleshoot Weak Braking Power With Electric Trailer Brakes On A New Trailer
    You are correct in that a manual override switch will apply the maximum braking power of the trailer brakes, if functioning properly. There are two things you may want to check. The first thing I would do is check to see the trailer brakes are properly grounded. There are two wires coming from the back of an electric brake assembly. One will run into the trailer's wiring harness and the other will be grounded to the frame. As these are nonpolar, it doesn't matter which wire has which...

  • Compatibility of Dexter 23-468/23-469 Brake Assemblies with Al/Ko Brake Drums
    The Dexter # 23-468 (driver side) and # 23-469 (passenger side) brake assemblies will be compatible with your existing brake drums as long as: -The existing drums dimensions match the dimensions of the 23-468/9 assemblies, which are 10x2-1/4. In order to fit, the inside depth and diameter of your existing drums should also be 10x2-1/4 inches. -The armature surface (surface the magnet rides against) isn't excessively grooved or discolored by excessive heat. If the metal has a bluish...

  • Will the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brakes Fit a 2009 Keystone Summerland with AL-KO 3.500 lb Axle
    Yes, the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes will work with your 3,500 lb AL-KO axles. Brake assemblies attach to the brake mounting flange that is welded to the axle or spindle. The brake mounting flange on the 3,500 lb AL-KO axles uses a standard 4-bolt pattern that is compatible with AL-KO 3,500 lb brake assemblies and Dexter brake assemblies. If you would like to confirm the compatibility, you can measure the distance between the bolt holes on the brake mounting flange or on your brake assembly...

  • How to Determine Which Replacement Brake Assemblies for Jayco Jayflight 22FB Travel Trailer
    I've linked you to an FAQ article that explains how to determine your wheel bolt pattern. The 4 bolt brake mounting flange has a standard bolt pattern of 2-7/8 inches center to center between adjacent holes or 4 inches center to center measured diagonally. To determine which replacement brake assembly is needed, you'd need to know the inside diameter and depth of your brake drum then choose a replacement assembly with identical dimensions. When you replace brake assemblies, you'll want...

  • How to Initially Adjust the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes
    The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust electric trailer brakes can be manually adjusted. There are a couple teeth of the adjustment wheel that are exposed just under the lever that you referenced. I have attached a photo showing the teeth. You will likely need a tool with a fine edge such as a flat head screw driver for the adjustment wheel on these brakes. A brake adjustment tool may be too thick. Without an initial manual adjustment, it could take a few braking attempts to adjust the brakes. I was...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Torque Spec for 10 Inch Dexter Electric Brake Assembly
    According to Dexter, the nut should be torqued to between 45-70 foot lbs. If you don't have a torque wrench close at hand, Tighten the bolts until the lock washer flattens, which will put you really close to the correct torque. We offer 4 nuts and lock washers as part # BIK-00.

  • Can Electric Trailer Brakes for a 4,400 Pound Axle be Used in Place of Brakes for a 3,500 Pound Axle
    Electric trailer brake assemblies for both 3,500 pound and 4,400 pound axles are 10 x 2-1/4 inches and both have the 4 hole square mounting pattern. So you can use 4,400 pound axles brakes. For the left use # K23-478-00 and for the right use # K23-479-00. These are Nev-R-Adjust assemblies which means after you adjust them the first time you will not have to manually adjust them again.

  • Where to Lubricate Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes
    You have to be careful if you lubricate electric trailer brakes such as # 23-468. 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,...

  • Are Dexter Nev-R Adjust Brake Assemblies Adjusted Upon the Initial Installation
    My contact at Dexter did confirm that the # 23-468 Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies will adjust themselves as you drive after the initial installation, but we still recommend that you do adjust the shoes when you first install the assemblies, so that your brakes are working as well as they can be upon the first use. This would be especially helpful in allowing your brake controller to engage the trailer brakes as intended. To install them, you would just bolt on the assembly, connect the...

    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...

  • Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brakes are Not Locking Up After Re-packing Bearings
    There are a couple of things that caught my eye in your question. First, you mentioned taking the trailer to have the bearings packed. It is possible that in the process, they may have got some grease on the shoes or another component of the brakes and it is causing poor brake performance. I am not sure why, if the brakes were fine, that the tech adjusted them. You can adjust Nev-R-Adjust brakes, sometimes it is necessary, but they will eventually adjust themselves unless they are worn....

  • Brake Conversion from Hydraulic to Electric Brakes on a 1984 Shoreline Boat Trailer
    Thanks for your recent purchases and sending us a picture! It's always better to add electric brakes on both axles because it reduces the stress on all components. You will need a 7-way molded connector # H20046 for your trailer to plug into your 2002 Ford F-150's 7-way connector. This connector is 8 feet long. I highly recommend getting a junction box like # 38656 or # PK52248 because it's an easy way to connect the wires from trailer connector to wiring for 6- or 7- connectors....

  • Replacing Hydraulic Surge Trailer Brakes with Electric Drum Brakes
    Dexter 10 x 2-1/4-inch electric drum brakes # 23-468 and # 23-469 are a perfect choice for your 3500-lb axle that has a 4-bolt brake flange. We see more and more boat trailer manufacturers specifying electric drum brakes as standard equipment due to their lower cost and easier installation. Electric brakes require a compatible brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885. To choose new hub/drum assemblies you'll need to know the bearings used in your existing hubs; this will ensure new...

There isn't an option for converting the TruRyde brake assemblies. Since you mention that you are having trouble maintaining the adjustment of your current brake assemblies, it sounds like there could be an issue with one of the components such as the adjuster or adjuster spring.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for 10" Drum Assembly
    In order to get the correct 10" brake assembly you will need to know your axle's weight capacity and your brake mounting flange bolt pattern. It is likely with that size drum your axle is rated for 3,500 lbs and and you have a 4-bolt mounting flange though you will need to confirm this. If that is what you have a great option would be the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA, which is rated for 3,500 lb axles, measures 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide and are self-adjusting.

    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....

    It's really tough to beat the Dexter brake assemblies. They work very well, are made in America, and are at a great price.

There are fewer sizes available for this brand and they are all self-adjusting assemblies.

  • Is Actuator Needed with 10" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-468 and # 23-469
    When using the 10" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for 3.5 K Axles, Left Hand # 23-468 and Right Hand # 23-469, you will not need an actuator for the brakes to function on the trailer. An actuator is used to pressurize the hydraulic brake system so it is not needed for electric brakes. In order to function, the Nev-R-Adjust brakes will need to be wired to your trailer connector. The brakes will then receive it's signal from a brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, # 90195,...
