Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes Parts - Driver Side Adjustment Screw - 048-022-00

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at Today we're taking a quick look at the Replacement Driver's Side Dexter Axle Adjusting Screw.This is how you make the adjustment on your brakes to get that pressure dialed in where you want it to be on your braking system. By turning that little dial you can see we're pushing the other piece out. It's going to push our feet on our brake assembly out as well, to give us more braking force. If we go the other way it's going to bring it in tighter, so it's going to lessen the braking force. That's where we're going to make our adjustment.As your brakes wear down you will want to adjust it out to bring those shoes a little bit closer to the edge so they can do their job in pushing against your hub to bring everything to a stop.Now this is going to replace the adjusting screw for several Dexter Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes, including the 10" Nev-R-Adjusting brakes and the 12" Nev-R-Adjusting brakes.

You can find those part numbers here at on the product page for this. If you want to see a complete list of those parts just check out for that.It does come apart. There's two pieces to this. The cover portion that goes over the end of the bolt. Then our adjustment nut that goes along our system here, has the angled teeth so as you're reaching through the back of that housing you can get a grip on those and make your adjustments.

Then we'll have our two forked ends to sit in our housing.It should get you out on the road without having too much trouble. One replacement part for your brakes so you don't have to replace the whole system if something had happened to your adjustment screw.You can always find multiple braking accessories and other replacement parts here at If you want to pick those up. Any wiring needs that you might need for your trailer, you can always turn to us for any of those parts.That's going to do it for our look at the Replacement Driver's Side Dexter Axle Adjusting Screw.

Replaces the driver's-side adjusting screw for your Dexter 10" or 12" Nev-R-Adjust electric brakes.


I have it on the brake waiting for the spring for it (I had to place Another order)



The brake adjuster fit perfectly,trailer was not on the road much this year but the parts were easy to work on


Easy to order and delivered on time! Will order from etrailer again!


Part fits perfectly, too bad for the inexperienced RV tech at an RV service station who installed this part backwards. Thank God there was no accident. Easy fix.


I have ordered from etrailer 4 times fast shipping parts were correct and and arrived within a couple of days. Highly recommend etrailer


Only place I could find this part...Exact replacement for Dexter 10 x 2 1/4 NEV-R-Adjust brake ..


Customer service was great! Two adjusters came in with what appeared to be factory defects. etrailer didn't blink an eye. They sent them right out.


Exactly what I was looking for. Great products and fair prices
