Video Transcript for Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the 10 inch Dexter Never Adjust electric trailer brake kit, for 3,500 pound axle, for the left and right hand side. It's going to be part number 23-468-469. It's also available individually for the left hand side using part number 23-468, and the right hand side, using part number 23-469. So here's what our brakes are going to look like once we have them installed. Now these are going to be a 10 inch diameter brake and be about 2-1/4 inches deep.Now one of the nicest things about these brakes is the fact that we're not going to have to adjust them, maybe the initial adjustment up front, but after that, they're going to be self adjusting. So wherever the brakes start wearing down, they're going to automatically adjust out, so they're at the right pressure.

And the fact that it's a whole assembly, it's going to be a lot easier than replacing each little spring or trying to just replace the shoes on your old assembly.The installation is going to be rather simple. We're going to take our old brakes off, or if we're adding new brakes, we're just going to push the brake assembly into place and we're going to have four nuts that we're going to put on the back of the studs. And then we'll just have two wires to hook up. Now our brake assembly is going to come as a kit. We're going to have the left and the right hand side.

They're going to come with all the mounting hardware as well as the plugs to go in the back, so we can make our initial adjustments.Compared to some of the other self adjusting brakes like the etrailer self adjusting brake kit, they're going to be almost identical. But the main big difference between the two of them is going to be the brake pads themselves. The Dexter is here, you can see on the edge where it's not exactly super clean, that's because when they manufacture these, they score them and then snap them. Whereas with the etrailer brand, they're going to be a nice clean cut because they're fully cut, instead of scored and snapped.Now overtime, these can cause a little bit more wear on the edges because it's not a super clean cut there, but Dexter is a well known brand, and they do offer a quality product. If you're comparing these two manual adjustment brakes, these are definitely going to take it there because they're going to be much more user friendly, because they're going to acquire that much less maintenance.

We're not going to have to crawl underneath our trailer, making adjustments every so often, because they're going to adjust themselves.So now that we've seen what our brakes look like and gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get them installed. To begin our installation, we went ahead and jacked our trailer up. Now we are using a jack, but we also have a jack stand underneath the frame towards the back, and we removed the wheel So now we're going to need to remove the dust cap. Take a screwdriver, go along the edge, just slowly work it out.Now, with the dust cap removed, we're going to go ahead and clean up some of this grease so we can see what we're working with, because we're going to need to pull the bearings out. And regardless if you have brakes or not, like we don't have here, we're still going to have to pull the hub off and pull all the bearings out as well.

Now if you have a cotter pin or a keeper tab, you're going to want to bend that out of the way, or pull the cotter pin out. That way we can get that castle nut to come off.Grab a pair of channel locks, and we'll remove that castle nut, so we can pull everything out. Once we have the nut removed, we'll go ahead and remove all the washers and the keepers. We'll clean them up and set them aside. Sometimes it helps if you just pull on the hub a little bit, and the rest of the washers and that bearing will come out. Now we're going to remove the hub. You're going to want to clean off the spindle extremely well. Get all that old grease and the other kind of debris that may be stuck on there from driving around.So with this spindle clean and the mounting surface cleaned up a little bit, this point, if you have brakes, you're going to want to remove them and typically these four mounting flanges is where there's going to be two nuts, on each side that we're going to have to remove. And then we can pull our brake assembly off. But if you're adding brakes like we are, we just want to make sure that that mounting surface is pretty cleaned up, doesn't have any major debris on there, and then we can grab our brake assembly.You want to make sure you grab the correct one. They are going to be labeled, it's going to be a sticker, it's going to tell us is the right hand side. And we are working on the right side of the trailer. Now on the back you'll notice that we're going to have those four studs coming out, that's go into those four mounting holes and you want to make sure that your wires are going to be up out of the way when we go to slide it in place. So we'll go through the center, having the spindle come out. We'll line up the holes. Just kind of hold it in place for now. Then we're going to take the included hex nuts and we're going to thread them onto the back, to make sure our brake assembly doesn't fall off.Just want to make sure you get all four of them on, at least hand tight, and then we can come back and tighten them down. We're going to come back at 11/16 socket. I'm going to torque that hardware down, and we'll find the torque specification in our instructions. Just make sure you're paying attention to the size because they do list several different sizes in the instruction. So now we can move on to the electrical connections of our brake assembly. We're to have two green wires coming out of the back. Now we already went ahead and ran our brake wires.One, the black wire's going to be our brake signal, and our white wire's going to be our ground. Now it doesn't matter in what order we hook these up. We're just going to take one of the green wires. I'm going to take a blue heat shrink butt connector. Slide my wire in, then crimp it in place. But I'm going to take one of my other wires, either the ground or the brake signal, put it into the other end of my butt connector, and crimp it down. We're going to repeat the same process for our other green wire coming out of the back. We're going to come back with a heat gun and shrink down my connectors. Now if you're using an open flame like a lighter or a mini torch, want to be extremely careful not to burn or char the connectors or the wires themselves.With our connections made and our brake assembly torqued down, we can go and repack our bearings, and put everything back in place, and put the new hub and drum assembly off. Now we already have our wheel back on. And you want to check for a slight drag, whenever you're spinning the tire. You don't want it to be too much to where you're really trying to force that wheel to turn, but you also don't want it so loose that it's just free spinning. You want to hear that little bit of a slight drag as you're turning it, but if your brakes aren't adjusted to the right spot just yet, we can go and move underneath to the backside of the brakes and we can pull those two plastic plugs.There's going to be two plugs at the bottom of our brake assembly, and that's where we're going to be making our adjustments. Now it's going to be easiest to use a brake tool to make the adjustments inside the drum. There's a little wheel that's got some teeth on it, and we're going to want to turn that, and that'll will tighten up our brakes. But if there somewhat close, that's okay, we'll go ahead and leave them alone, because they are self adjusting and after a few applications they'll start to adjust into their appropriate spot. And those plugs will just snap into place. And now that this side is done, we can go and repeat that same process for the other side.And that'll finish up your look at the Dexter 10 inch Never Adjust electric trailer brake kit, part number 23-468-469.

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 716109

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 702905

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. 657108

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. 397041

  • Are New Brake Drums Required if Replacing Electric Brake Assemblies on a Trailer
    If you already have brake drums you will not have to replace them unless they are damaged or became overheated and have discoloration on the inside armature surface where the magnet rides, grooves in the armature surface, or severe wear where the pads ride. If the drums are in good shape there really isn't a benefit to getting new ones when you replace the brakes. Speaking of the brakes if you are looking for 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies I recommend our brand # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left...

  • Troubleshooting Removing Trailer Brake Assemblies and the Studs Just Spin
    Your old assemblies could possibly have nuts on the inside of them for the studs to attach to. You are going to need to access the other side of the assembly to see what holds the studs to them. If it is a broken stud without a bolt head to grab onto and the stud is basically just spinning with the nut on the other side you would either need to try and prevent the stud from spinning with like a set of vice-grips or worst possible scenario grind the studs off from the back of the assembly...

  • 10 inch Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 1969 Kit Companion Travel Trailer
    Do the 10 inch brake assemblies on your trailer attach with 4 mounting studs? If so, then you have standard 10 inch brake assemblies and the part # 23-468 for the left side and part # 23-469 for the right hand side would fit your trailer.

  • Replacement Pads/Shoes for 10 Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies
    Yes, we do have the replacement brake pads (also known as shoes) for the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-469 (right hand) as well as part # 23-468 (left hand). These are found as parts # K71-682 and # K71-681 respectfully. Please note that it is typically more cost effective to swap out the whole brake assembly. Another perk to doing this is that you can be confident that other internal components aren't excessively worn down from prolonged use.

  • Right-hand Electric Drum Brake assembly For Trail-Lite Bantam Travel Trailer
    The right-hand electric drum brakes we offer for 3500-lb axles are the 10 x 2-1/4-inch size. These are offered in manual-and self-adjust types that can be seen on the linked page. For example, for a self-adjusting right brake you can use Dexter # AKEBRK-35R-SA or part # AKEBRK-35R for a manual adjust brake. These fit a 4-bolt brake flange with holes spaced 2-7/8-inches on center. Your axle should have a sticker indicating its weight rating. You'll want to ensure you know the capacity...

  • Do Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies Make Noise When Activated
    When trailer drum brakes are activated you should be able to hear a humming sound. I am not quite sure I would describe it as musical, but it sounds like they are functioning on your trailer. Have you tried testing the brakes to see if they function properly? Most likely they will work fine. You should also note that these are self-adjusting brake assemblies so at first they may not seem to powerful, but with every brake application they should get slightly stronger until they are fully...

  • Do Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies Include Adjuster Plugs
    The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, like # 23-469, do not include plugs in the backing plates. To seal the adjuster holes, you will want to use the Adjuster Plugs for Brake Assemblies # BP10-220. These plugs are designed to fit Dexter and Demco 7 inch, 10 inch, and 12 inch electric and hydraulic brake assemblies.

  • Replacement Electric Brake and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Use with Al-Ko 2800-lb Axle
    The Dexter 10-Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for 3.5K Axles, parts # 23-469 (right) and # 23-468 (left) will work with a 2800-lb axle as long as it has the same 4-bolt mounting pattern (holes that are 2-7/8-inches apart on center). The hub/drum assembly you referenced, Dexter # 84546UC3-EZ, will work with these brake assemblies and as long as the included bearings match your current ones they will fit your spindles. We do offer lug nut caps but only for large dually wheels.

  • Accomplishing Initial Adjustment of Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies
    Getting the Nev-r-adjust assembly initially set can be a bit challenging. I would recommend bolting the assembly in place and rotating the adjuster from the front before installing the hub. You can keep moving the shoes outward, until you can barely slip the drum into place. This will get you pretty close to the initial adjustment needed. If you need to make an additional fine adjustment one way or the other, you can force your brake adjustment tool in from behind the assembly past the...

  • Replacement Self-Adjusting 10 inch Dexter Trailer Brake Assemblies
    For a set of 10 inch brake assemblies from Dexter you would want the part # 23-469 for the passenger side and part # 23-468 for the driver side. Since you most likely have 3,500 Dexter axles the bearing kit you would want that includes a seal is the part # BK2-100. This is a bearing kit for the 84 spindle which has L44649/L68149 Bearings and a 10-19 Double Lip Seal.

  • Info Needed to Pick Out Parts to Add Brakes to a Trailer
    I attached a help article that will walk you through the process, but basically you will need to first determine what spindle your trailer axles have so that you can fit a hub to them and then build the rest of the parts from there. Check out the link I attached to see exactly how this is done. Your trailer having mounting flanges already is a great sign as that's the biggest factor typically.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes That Voltage Makes it to the Assemblies But They Don't Work
    Sounds like the problem is the ground wire of your brake assemblies. If you have power to the assemblies but the ground wire isn't connected to a clean metal surface of the trailer frame then you would have the problems you described. Also check the condition of the main trailer ground that goes from the trailer connector to the frame of the trailer.

  • Weight Rating For the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Assembly part # 23-469
    The 10" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-469 does not have a brake horsepower rating, but it does have a weight rating. This assembly is designed to be used on a 3,500 lb trailer axle. If you trailer has a 3,500 lb rated axle and you are not overloading it this assembly would work great. The magnet sensitivity is setup so that at full 12 volts the assembly will be applying max braking power. Any less than that will be related to that. So at 6 volts you would get half braking...

  • Do Trailer Brake Assemblies on Both Axles Need to be Replaced at the Same Time
    Trailer brake assemblies will typically all wear at the same rate. This means that when you find assemblies that are worn and in need of replacement, most likely the remaining assemblies on the trailer will require replacement too. With that being said, it is not required to replace the brake assemblies on both of your axles at the same time. If you check the condition of all of them and only the ones you mentioned are worn, then you can leave the assemblies on the other axle alone...

  • Recommended Braking System for 2390 GWVR Trailer w/ 12 Inch Rims
    Unless the trailer you're speaking of is a boat trailer, electric drum brakes would be the simplest and most cost effective solution. For a 12 inch wheel, a 7 x 1-3.4 inch brake drum would be the most common solution. In order to make a recommendation for the right brake assembly, we'll need to pick the correct brake hub/drum, which means I'll need to know the reference numbers off your inner and outer wheel bearings. With that information, I can recommend compatible brake assemblies and...

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
    It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle. It is also not advised to use self-adjusting braking assemblies on one axle and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the other. The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns. If you have a 3,500 lb axle or multiple 3,500 lb axles on your trailer then you will need to use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake...

  • Can 3500 lb AL KO Brake Assemblies be Replaced with Dexter Brake Assemblies
    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. For the left hand brake assembly, you can use part # 23-468 and for the right hand use part # 23-469. I have attached a review video for the Nev-R-Adjust...

    Thanks for sending us a picture! The 10 x 2-1/4 inch trailer brake shoe pads part # BP04-095 you referenced only works with the manual adjust brake assembly. What you need is the left hand shoe lining # K71-681 and/or right hand shoe lining # K71-682 to fit the Dexter 10-inch Nev-R adjust brake assemblies.

To see how to troubleshoot them check out the help article I attached. For replacement magnets for the Dexter 10 by 2-1/4 inch assemblies you would want the part # BP01-110. As bad as your assemblies sound you might just want to replace both assemblies. For the left hand side you would want the part...

  • 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...

    As long as your axle uses a 4-bolt mounting flange with bolt holes 2-7/8" apart on center, the Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies will work and you can continue to use your current Axeltek brake drums. For the left hand side assembly you will need part # 23-468 and for the right hand side part # 23-469. However if you would like we do have the Axletek equivalents availble too, for the right hand self adjusting is # AKEBRK-35R-SA and for the left hand self adjusting part it is...

  • Is the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System 2000 lbs Compatible with Electric Brakes
    You can use electric brakes with a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System rated for 2,000 lbs, however, you would need the Heavy-Duty system, part # ASR2KHDS01. The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system, # A20RS545, that you referenced is not compatible with trailer brakes because it does not have a brake mounting flange at the base of the spindle. The Timbren Heavy-Duty system, comes with a brake mounting flange with a 4 on 4 bolt pattern which fits most 10 inch brake assemblies. The brake...

  • 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,...
