Three out of four brakes (two LH and one RH) work properly. The fourth one is overheating. It's not a bearing problem -- it's a brake problem.



We towed the camping trailer all over Florida in February and March. All the brakes worked great!


The brakes on our 2001 Coleman Sante Fe were bad and needed replaced. We found this on and what a God send, This is a complete package deal, all new brakes, plate, bolts electro-magnet, wires, springs. Hoot and holler. 4 bolts and it was on, perfect factory replacement. Thank you, you all are wonderful. Easy to replace, just allow the time. Repack the bearings and replace the seal. . . . . u wall a. . . like new. Works like new. . .

After a year. . they are operating as if you took it off the lot. Thanks for the great service and parts. . totally happy camper. . . .jim


The items went onto my Aspen Classic trailer fairly easy. The only glitch was that I received axel caps that were too large. Once I notified the company, I received the correct caps rather quickly and finished up the install.



After getting the incorrect axel caps and quickly getting the issue corrected, the product has met my expectations. I installed all myself and was pretty easy and straight forward.


The staff at are very helpful and knowledgeable - ask if you're unsure. I originally ordered through the Internet and received the wrong products - because I neglected to ask questions. The return went smooth, but I had to pay for it (my error). The next round arrived well packaged (externally), but there was thin packing tape all over the outside of the hubs and some on the inside rubbing surface of the hubs. It took some doing to get it all off. There was a little rust on the non-contact surfaces of the hub as well as on the brake housing. On the brake housing, you can see some rust in the pic. Looks like it may have been rebuilt. This doesn't seem to have any effect on its operation though. Seals, Races & Bearings are super clean and fit perfectly. I installed these brakes onto the existing '4.5 on 5' flange on a 2000 pound axle (on a 2004 Aliner LX Classic Pop-up trailer). It came with the bolts to attach to the flange, but be sure to order the adjuster grommets, lock washers and 7/16x20 fine thread nuts, since it doesn't come with them. Once I got the wiring set up properly, it works exactly as it should. I prewired the setup prior to delivery. My error was that I assumed the only wire I'd need to run was the blue (brake) wire, but there are two wires on the brake housing as you can see in the picture. Either one goes to the blue (doesn't matter which) and the other attaches to the neutral (white) wire that goes back through the trailer's main wiring harness. Simply attaching the wire to the trailer frame (ground) like I initially did as seen in the picture looked like a good clean setup and easy solution to my one-wire mistake. Unfortunately, it DID NOT WORK. The secondary (neutral) wire must be detected by the tow vehicle's brake controller. Plan ahead and buy the blue and white primary wires (20 feet of 14 or 16 gauge will work) and run them next to each other before hand. Be sure to house the wires in 'plastic split loom tubing' so they don't rub against anything and zip tie them to the frame, so they're not hanging or in the way of anything. Happy braking. :-)


Exactly what I needed to install new brakes on my 13' Scamp Travel Trailer with EZ Lube spindles and electric brakes. It's fairly easy to install. Only four bolts hold the backing plate to the flange on the axle. The hard part is getting the old brakes off. On my rig, they must have installed the original OEM brakes with an impact wrench at the axle factory. Eventually, using muscles and penetrating oil, I got the old nuts off and installed the new brakes. The nuts were on pretty tight. Make sure you order new nuts, lock washers, and brake adusting hole plugs. They don't automatically ship with the new brakes. Perhaps many people just reuse the one ones. Now, I have new electric brakes and hubs on my RV.


I'm giving ETRAILER an excellent review for there dedication to making sure I received a quality product on time.


Parts arrived early and installed perfectly. Love the quality and ease of install.


Received product as described. Fast del ivery.


The part was exactly what I needed. Delivery was very quick, 2 work days. The price for the entire brake assembly was less than an auto parts store quoted Me for one piece of the assembly. Yes it was less expensive to buy the assembly, than to buy just the magnet. The sales clerk for the assembly was very helpful and sincere. The clerk told Me after I had placed the order that I would receive parts at the good price, delivered, with no extra freight charge. I was very pleased when I received the parts and they fit very well. I will be contacting them again. I have owned and operated my repair shop for over 40 years. It is so nice to talk with a most Pleasant order clerk and receive exactly what I needed. The clerk was patient and very helpful. Thanks for the Good Service !


Installed the Dexter 7 inch electric brakes on my pop up camper replacing old. They were a perfect fit and have plenty of stopping power. Order was also received in a timely fashion.


Installed and worked great.


Having read reviews before ordering, I knew I needed to order lock washers and nuts. But seriously, you can't include them? Just bump up the price accordingly. That way no one will forget / not know to order them. Great prices and fast delivery. Works perfect.


The 23-48 brakes are an excellent replacement on my 1997 Coleman Fleetwood Bayports popup camper that I am close to finishing a restoration process on. They fit perfectly! Very happy to purchase an excellent product from the fastest shipper I have ever come across. I am blown away by the professionalism with this company!


Everything arrived earlier than I expected. Install of electric brakes went smooth no problems at all. Thinking on adding some brakes to my Motorcycle trailer next. Be sure be back here to purchase again when I do. Also great response to order progress and update emails.


The 7 in Dexter electric brakes are a great direct fit off my old rusted brakes. These brakes saved me so much time allowing me to get to the camp sites faster.


Exact Fit for my 1995 Coleman Pop-up, identical to the Dexter Electric Brakes that I was replacing. Excellent customer service, documentation and rapid delivery. Etrailer has been excellent for all my needs.


Electric Brake kit for trailer this time.
The parts are very acceptable and the service is supreme.
Couldn't get any better service anywhere. I've bought a lot of items from etrailer for a couple years now. I have had great experiences with each and every order.


Still working on adjusting them to work with the brake controller but they did stop the tires when not connected to the vehicle and jacked up.


Service was excellent. Parts arrived in 4 days. Dont have a picture but I purchased a set of brake assemblies for our tent trailer.


Brakes fit great on my teardrop camper.
customer service is fantastic.


I replaced the four old brakes on my son's motorcycle trailer with these and they seem to be working fine.


I had a mishap on my camper and burned up a set of brakes, and had another camping trip to get ready for. So I ordered a set of these. They showed up on time, were easy to install, and saved the day


easy to find the part i need , all info is their and easy to find , tracking isnt like pulling teeth to get .


I ordered a set of trailer brakes for my camper and they arrived at my home in just four days. The order was filled correctly and promptly. Thank you very much. You know how to do business.


Exact replacement for original. Well packed for shipping and worked without a hitch. Very pleased.

  • Is Dexter Trailer Brake Set part # 23-47-48 part Number 23-47 and 23-48
    The Dexter Trailer Brake Set part # 23-47-48 is just the # 23-47 assembly and the # 23-48 assembly like you stated. Our pricing does fluctuate somewhat and it usually has to do with previous sales and current stock. If I were you I'd go with the part number that gives you the best deal!

  • What is the Torque Rating When Installing 7 Inch Brake Assembly to Brake Mounting Flange
    The torque rating is going to depend on the grade of bolt and nut used. I would go with grade 5 or better hardware and torque the nuts to 54 foot pounds. This particular brake assembly (# 23-48) uses 7/16 inch bolts and nuts.

  • How Smooth Do Brake Drums Need to Be for Ideal Operation
    In order to have optimal braking on the trailer, it's actually pretty important that the drum's interior remain smooth throughout. Any actual grooves on the surface will cause the magnet to wear unevenly and also lead to weaker braking. You want maximum contact between the face of the magnet and armature surface on the brake drum and grooves or scratches will affect this. If you are dealing with true grooves (and not just rust buildup that would likely break off during use) then I do...

  • Determining the Correct Hub Drum and Brake Assembly for an 18ft Performance Trailer
    To order a complete trailer brake setup for your Performance 18 trailer, you will need to find out a couple of things about the trailer first. You have 3500 pound axles, but you will need to know the bolt circle pattern for the trailer wheels, and you will need to know the bearing part numbers, both inner and outer, to find the proper hub and drum for your trailer. If you want brakes on one axle, you will need 2 hub drums and if you have two axles and want brakes on both axles you will...

  • Can Trailer Hubs That Are Rusted Continue to Be Used with New Brakes
    Yes, you can still use these hubs with the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-48. Surface rust is to be expected. As long as there is no extensive rust compromising the structure or grooves in the surface then you are good to use them.

  • Do Trailer Drums have to be Machined or Turned when Replacing Brake Assemblies
    Hubs and drums that can be turned (machined) will have a specification on how much they can be turned cast into the metal of the drum somewhere. Otherwise it is at the brake shop's discretion. Drums do not have to be turned unless there is some kind of problem such as an uneven interior surface where the pads ride. If you are just replacing the brakes and the insides of the drums appear to be fine then you should not have to have them turned.

  • Replacement 7-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch Brake Assemblies for Coleman Trailer
    For 7 inch by 1-1/4 inch brake assemblies you would want the part # 23-47 for the left hand side and # 23-48 for the right side. These use the standard 4 bolt pattern.

  • Replacement 7 inch Brake Assemblies for 2,000 lb Axle
    We do not have access to the brand Reliable, but most likely you would want the part # 23-48 for the right hand side and part # 23-47 for the left side. These are 7 inch brake assemblies for a 2k axle and use a 4 bolt mounting flange that is the industry standard for brake assemblies.

  • Parts Needed to Install Brakes on 2002 Interstate Cargo Trailer
    In order to suggest the correct parts for you, I'll need some information about existing parts on your trailer. I'll need to know: -Do your existing axles have the 4-bolt brake mounting flange on them? -What's the inner and outer wheel bearing reference numbers? -What diameter wheels are you currently using? Once I have this information, I'd be happy to make some recommendations for you. If you click the provided link, you can see the whole run-down on what would be involved.

  • Recommended Electric Brake Assemblies to Replace Surge Brakes on Snowmobile Trailer
    As long as the axles on your trailer have a 4-bolt mounting flange pattern for the brakes, the Dexter 7 Inch Electric Brake Assembly # 23-47 for the Left Hand and # 23-48 for the Right Hand will work great as replacements for your surge brakes. These are 7 inch diameter drums with a width of 1-1/4 inches. Along with the assemblies themselves, you will need to also install a trailer brake controller in your tow vehicle if you do not already have one. I highly recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy...

    It sounds like your new axle does have a brake mounting flange, which is what that square piece you are describing likely is. I have included a picture that shows what an axle with brake mounting flanges looks like. For a square brake mounting flange and 2000 pound axle you would use 7 x 1-1/4 inch brakes. You can use # 23-47 for the left side and # 23-48 for the right side. You will also need hub and drum assemblies to replace regular idler hubs. For the correct hub and drum assemblies...

  • Brake Mounting Flange Recommendation for a 2k Rated Trailer Axle
    What you will want to do is purchase the part # 4-34 as this is a brake mounting flange designed for 2k axles. The brake mounting flange needs to be welded on perfectly square and concentric and if it is off just a little bit, this can lead to all kinds of problems with trailer ride, stability, tire, and suspension wear. We strongly recommend that brake flanges be welded on by a professional shop that routinely works on trailers and has the equipment required to weld the flange to the spindle.

  • Brake Mounting Flange Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Spindle on a 2006 Palomino Camper
    I believe I have what you need. Since you said you have a shaft size of 1-1/4 I am assuming you are referring to the spindle. The Brake Mounting Flange # 4-34 is designed to work on spindles that are 1-1/4 inches in diameter and should work for you. The description says that this flange works on 1-3/4 inch axles with 1-1/4 inch spindles. With this brake mounting flange you will need to use a 7 inch brake assembly. For a left hand brake assembly you could get a Dexter Brake Assembly #...

    If by solenoid you are referring to the brake magnets, then yes, we do offer replacement brake magnets depending on the size brakes that you have on your 1992 Coleman Fleetwood. I did some research on your trailer and it looks like you should have 7 inch Dexter brakes, so you could use the Trailer Brake Magnet Kit, # BP01-068. If you were interested in replacing your entire brake assemblies, then I would recommend taking a look at your current brakes to check if there is anything else...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes for a Floe Snowmobile Trailer with 2,200 Pound Axles
    The axle you have that can take brakes probably has a 4-bolt mounting pattern for the brakes. You could use Dexter brakes # 23-48 for the right and # 23-47 for the left. If the mounting flange doesn't take a 4-bolt assembly let me know. In addition to the brakes themselves you will also need wiring, maybe a different trailer connector depending on what the trailer has now (if the trailer has a 7-Way then you would not need to change connectors), and the vehicle will need to have a brake...

  • Prodigy P3 Brake Controller Installation in 2014 Ram 1500 with Factory Controller
    Yes, you can replace the factory brake controller in your 2014 Dodge Ram pickup with a superior aftermarket unit. Many owners who select the factory controller option ultimately end up with an aftermarket controller for one reason or another. For a reliable brake controller I suggest the Prodigy P3 # 90195 which will install in your truck using wiring adapter # 3023-P. You can refer to the linked video and article for installation details. Please note that you may need to take your truck...

  • Solution for Factory Brake Controller of 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Not Stopping Electric/Hydraulic Brakes
    We've found that even the factory brake controllers that state they can be used with electric over hydraulic brakes don't often work well or even at all. The issue you are experiencing is due to the factory controller not working well with your setup so I would recommend swapping it out to something like the P3 part # 90195 with the install harness part # 3023-P and you'd have the best setup that will work much better and will definitely have ability to fully stop your trailer.

  • Troubleshooting 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 with Factory Brake Controller
    It is possible that you have an electric over hydraulic braking system on your trailer. Most OEM brake controllers are not compatible with electric over hydraulic actuators. If your trailer brakes are working, you may find your actuator is cycling on and off when connected to the truck and this will significantly shorten the life of the actuator. The Dodge factory brake controllers are designed to be used with electric trailer brakes only and are not designed to be used with electric over...

  • Parts Needed to Convert to Electric Trailer Brakes or Repair Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
    You can switch to electric brakes, but there are several parts you will need. First, you need to take a look at the hole pattern for the brake mounting flange. This is the piece that is welded to the axle that holds the brake assembly. The 7 inch brakes you are looking at have a standard 4 hole mounting pattern. If the existing flange has a different pattern, you will need to have the old flange removed and a new one welded on by a qualified professional with experience working on trailers....

    If your spindle has wear, I recommend replacing it with a new spindle. The wear can become worse, not provide a good surface for the bearing/seal, and lead to other problems down the road. Better to take care of it ahead of time before it becomes a problem. I have included a link to our spindle main page for you to view. The outside diameter of a drum will be larger than the inside and larger than the measurement we use. A 7 inch diameter listed will have a 7 inch inside diameter. To...
