I ordered these brakes on Tuesday they arrived at my house (in southeast Texas) on Friday (free shipping). These brakes heavy duty and a breeze to install. I paid twice as much for brakes I had bought before, locally. Good job ETrailer!!!!

Easy to install and again no problems this far.



by:

EXCELLENT...... START TO FINISH. Fantastic service, great prices, quality products. Here's a before and after picture. It only took 30 minutes and basic tools to make the replacement. So much better than trying to clean up the old rusty one. Thanks again, Bill Borland in Michigan

Perfect match as always. Shipping was fast. Customer service to find the right part is always so very much appreciated. Always happy to pay a couple of extra dollars for their reliable support and fast shipping (via shipping)!!!!!!!!!!!



by:

Brakes were a perfect match for my camper and a simple bolt up. Thank you Anthony W. For making sure I got the right parts



by:

I bought 2 sets of 12x2 electric brake assembly for my car hauler. I was just going to replace the shoes but after remembering the difficaulty in doing drum brakes in the early days, I found it easier and less time consuming by just remove 5 bolts and connect two wires. This product came to my door with in only 3 days. Great looking product (no picture because i"m writing this after the install).
I have been back to etrailer several time for other items such as hitch shank, wheel center caps even grease caps. Great place to shop.

Just to say the products are great well made

Quality product and super fast shipping

New Dexter complete brake assembly even comes with new mounting nuts. Fast service and quality item.



by:

The right and left hand brake were very easy to install and came with everything needed. The only problem after install, is that the left hand break gave off a buzzing sound while brakes were not engaged...adjusting the arm as suggested by your technicians to the electric magnet did not help...there was little engagement from magnet to drum while brake were not engaged, that i decided to go the 8k miles anyway, checking every night stop...it still has the buzzing sound and I will need to replace.

I am writing this very favorable review of my online shopping experience with etrailer. Recently I had to replace the brakes, hubs, wheels and tires on my travel trailer. Please keep in mind that I am a 65 year old man without a lot of experience with online shopping. Never-the-less, I decided to give it a try in hopes of saving some money. To my surprise, etrailer made the experience very easy and painless. Before I placed my order on line, I had a question about one of the items on my shopping list, so I placed a call to them. I spoke with a very lovely and patient Customer Service Representative by the name of Michelle S. She was very helpful in answering my questions and encouraged me to call her back directly when I was ready to place my order; and so I did. During the shipping process, she kept me informed through emails the status of my order and everything arrived on time and in great shape. I truly appreciate the personalized services I received doing business with etrailer. They truly removed all of the uncertainty and nervousness of shopping online.



by:

Unfortunately, one of the 4 brakes came with the spring and adjuster shaft on the bottom of the box. I put them back on without too much trouble but etrailer should review the product packaging in order to protect the brakes from damage. The install needs shrink tubing style crimp connectors. Mine required sizes for 16 to 18 gage and one size up for joining 3 wires where one wire crosses over thru the axel from the left to the right side. Also there are two adjuster plugs per brake so a total of 8 plugs are required for 4 brakes. Once installed they worked great.



by:

Great to work with. Understood what I needed better than I did. Perfect fit.



by:

Brakes arrived very quickly and looked very good. One spring and adjustment rod came off during shipping, but the pieces were there and easily installed. I haven't installed them yet, but am very happy with product at this point.

am still very pleased with these brakes. They have performed great with no problems to date.



by:

I had bought a used Hallmark 24' cargo trailer. Got around to repacking the bearings and one brake assembly had just come apart. Electric brakes and one lead was gone so I order this item. Arrived in a timely manner. Installed backing plate/brakes and hub in about 15 minutes. Attached electric brake leads and everything looks great. I have not figured out how to test the electric brakes.



by:

Wonderful service, exact replacement, delivered promptly!



by:

I had ordered some parts online to rebuild the suspension on one of our trailers. Customer service called me a short time later to inform me that they were out of stock on some items, they asked if it was possible to substitute some items. She was able to find the exact parts I needed in a different kit. The parts came within 3 days, very well packed, and they fit perfectly! This is the 3rd time I've ordered from etrailer and they have exceeded my expectations every time. EXCELLENT customer service and quality parts.



by:

Good OEM replacement parts at the best price I could find. Bolted right up with no issues. Very disappointed that the brake adjuster slots do not come with plugs. Plugs from old brake assy, did not fit, plus there are two slots per new brake assy, but only one on old brake assy. Ordered 8 plugs. Disappointed as I had to pay for additional shipping when I ha free shipping.



by:

Thanks or the prompt reply on proper grease seal. You were very prompt on shipping all the parts I needed for my trailer brakes. It only took 4 days from order until I received. Every thing worked fine. Thanks again for the very good service. Ray Bellamy



by:

Bolted them on, wired trailer over from hydraulic brakes. this job took about 4 hours start to finish. 3 axle trailer. These brakes will hold back my tractor.



by:

Had exactly what I needed. No hassle order. Got a quality part to me in a few days.
When I finally got time to install it, it fit and worked perfect.



by:

I ordered electric brakes on box was opened before, but all parts was still there, nothing lost. Got parts fairly quick also.
I've made purchases before from etrailer will continue in future.

  • When Should I Replace My Brakes On The Dexter Electronic Brake Assembly # 23-106?
    I reached out to Dexter about your specific question concerning your brakes # 23-106-09. A simple visual inspection of your brake linings will tell if they are usable. Replacement is necessary if the lining is worn to 1/16" or less. Shoes contaminated with grease or oil, or abnormally scored or gouged should also be replaced. Hairline heat cracks are normal in bonded linings and should not be cause for concern. When replacement is necessary, it is important to replace both shoes on each...

  • Are Trailer Brakes Normally Locked Up When Disconnected from Tow Vehicle
    Trailer brakes do not lock up when they are disconnected from the tow vehicle. They basically are free rolling until a brake controller puts amperage on their circuit which applies the braking mechanisms. Wheel chocks like what you mentioned are what's needed to keep the trailer from rolling.

  • How to Determine if A Trailer Hub/Drum or Spindle is Damaged Beyond Repair
    For the drum what you are going to want to look at is discoloration where the pads make contact with the drum and the armature surface which is where the magnet makes contact with the inside of the drum. Discoloration means that the metal is damaged and the hub and drum assembly would need to be replaced. In some cases some brake brake shops can turn a drum but it seems that less and less places are doing that. Both pictures came through. The brakes look like they may have taken some...

  • How To Easily Disconnect Trailer Brake Controller On A 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
    The easiest way to disconnect your trailer brake controller from your vehicle is to disconnect your brake controller. You'll just need to unplug the controller plug from the back of the brake controller. This should eliminate any power draw from your vehicle's battery. The only other way is to cut the brake wire from the trailer connector, but you should not need to do this. So on your Journey HD trailer brake controller, you'll just need to unplug both ends of the plug that's going...

  • Bully Brake Controller has Locked Up 3 Times When Stopped
    It sounds like there is a short that is causing constant power draw to the brake magnets. The most likely culprit is a dirty or corroded vehicle or trailer side connector. Make sure that both are clean and free of corrosion inside where the wires attach and outside on the pins. If the truck side checks out fine then it could be the wiring to the brake magnets or the magnets themselves. Inspect the power wires to the magnets and look for pinched, frayed, or damaged wires and fix as needed....

  • Why Would Brakes Lock Up After Wiring and Brake Controller Install on a 2011 Ford E-250
    It sounds like you installed a 6-way on your 2011 Ford E-250 with a brake controller to tow a trailer that also has a 6-way. The thing about 6-way wiring is that there is two generally accepted wiring pin outs for them. The only difference between the two is that the brake output circuit and the 12 volt accessory circuit are swapped. It sounds like your trailer and E-250 are using different wiring. On E-250 you will want to swap the center pin of the connector with the pin in the 9:00...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locked When Connected to Truck
    There is an issue with the 7-way that is causing the brakes to stay on all the time and it sounds like the trailer brakes are wired to the 12 volt pin. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see how your trailer's 7-way should be pinned. If yours is different and from your description it sounds like that is the case, you will need to re-wire your connector so it is compatible with your tow vehicle's pins.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brakes Locking Up
    The magnet in an electric brake assembly is the component that activates your trailer's brakes when you step on your vehicle's brakes. When you step on your vehicles brakes your trailer brake controller sends power to your trailer via the blue wire, and goes to the magnet in the electric trailer brake assembly to activate your trailer brakes. The magnet's are located towards the bottom of the electric brake assembly and have two wires coming out of them, one will attach to trailer frame...

  • Locating Correct Replacement Seal for Older Trailer
    Finding grease on the brake magnet and around the assembly is definitely a sign that the hub's grease seal needs to be replaced. The people you have talked to are correct. When searching for the right replacement you will need to check for a number that should be stamped right inside the seal itself. If you can't find a number, you can also use a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where the grease seal rides (see attached diagram). This will give you the seal's inner...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Where One Wheel Locks Up
    One wheel locking up on your trailers brakes could be for a few reason. Most likely it's due to a brake assembly that is out of adjustment. You want to adjust the assemblies so there is only a light drag on them when they are turned by hand. Check out the 4:40 mark of the video I attached for more info. It could be that there is a short on the circuit, but that wouldn't be it most likely since that would activate all of the brake assemblies since they all share the same circuit. But either...

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up
    Trailer brakes that lock up can be related to several problems. If they lock up when the trailer connected is connected that would indicate that the 12 volt accessory circuit is shorting out to the brake output circuit on the trailer which is causing the brakes to lock up. You would want to check the wiring and trailer connectors of both the vehicle and trailer looking for any obvious signs of shorts such as cut or exposed wire, or corrosion and fix as necessary. Or if you have a 6-way...

  • Brake Controller Install on 2007 Sierra Causing Mirror Display and Interior Lights to Malfunction
    My best guess is that during the installation, something under the dash was inadvertently dislodged. The tow package wiring and the interior lamp and power mirror temperature display circuits are not related in any way, so either something was accidentally unplugged or the malfunctions you mentioned are merely coincidental. Just to make absolutely sure I hadn't missed anything, I checked with my contact at Tekonsha. He could think of no possible way a brake controller installation could...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up when Day Time Running Lights are On for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If you are using a brake controller then the likely cause is that the brake controller red wire is not in the right place in the harness used to plug into the truck. I have included a picture that shows where all the wires needed to be for you. If you do not have a brake controller then the likely issue is a short of some kind in the trailer connector either on the truck or the trailer. You will need to make sure that both are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. You will also want...

  • Troubleshooting Single Brake Assembly Overheating on Tandem Axle Trailer
    Aside from checking how tight the spindle nut is and checking the hub/drum, brakes, and spindle to make sure everything is in good working condition, the only other thing I can think of is for you to check and make sure the 12V power isn't jumping from the 12V power over to that individual brake assembly. You'll need to apply 12V power to the 12V power pin on your 7-Way to check this.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locking When Brake Pedal is Applied
    It sounds like your brake controller either needs adjusting the gain for your brake pedal or there is an internal issue with your brake controller and it needs replaced. If it were a wiring issue then the manual brake override would not work the way you are describing. I've attached an article to help with testing your brake controller, but it sounds like if basic gain control isn't the issue then replacement is the next step. I've linked the page to all your options for your 2007...

  • What Causes Trailer Tire Failure
    Typically trailer tires fail for the following 3 reasons. 1) Keep your tires fully inflated to the maximum pressure listed on the tire sidewall. Unlike a passenger car tire, trailer tires feature a stronger sidewall designed to provide greater stability when under load. Failure to fully inflate the tires can cause heat build-up, leading to premature tire failure. Also, a tire only will only realize its specified load rating when inflated to its maximum psi shown on the tire. 2) Do not...

  • Information Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Trailer
    To see absolutely everything you need to add electric brakes to your trailer check out the link to the FAQ article I attached to the right that covers everything. Basically you are going to need to figure out what spindles you have so that you can determine the correct hub/drums that will fit, and then you will need to determine what assemblies will fit the recommended hub drums.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up Even with No Power Getting to Them
    Your trailer might be possessed! If the trailer has a battery on it with a breakaway system then that is likely where the power was coming from. Even if there wasn't a breakaway system, if there is a battery on the trailer then it is possible that corrosion on or in the trailer connector could be causing a short from the 12 volt circuit to the brake circuit. Cutting the power to the magnets should cause the brakes to release. But in this case that didn't work. Since you mentioned that...

  • What is the Small Plastic Tab on My Brake Assemblies For
    The clear tab you're referring to on the Dexter Electric Brake Assembly # 23-106 is not something that you have to use, but it's there to allow you to tie up any loose wires. I've seen a lot of people that don't really use them and keep the wiring fairly short, but it's used to tie up any loose wiring that might hang off the back.

    The SC code displayed on an integrated brake controller of a 2011 Ram 3500 indicates that you have a shorted output circuit on the brake controller wiring. If the code shows all the time then the issue is on the truck side of the wiring. If it's only when a trailer is connected the short is on the trailer wiring. Either way you'll need to trace the output circuit for the trailer brakes to find any cut or exposed wire and fix as needed to get rid of the short. I attached a help article...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Lights Up without Trailer Connected
    It sounds like your brake controller display will light up when it detects that it is connected to a trailer. If now it is lit up without a trailer connected that would indicate that there is most likely corrosion on the brake output circuit of your trailer connector. Check out the trailer connector looking for any corrosion and clean as necessary. Look on the inside and back of the connector for this. In some cases moisture can cause the issue you are describing as well. Allowing the...

This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out. Next thing you will need to know is what spindle you have on your trailer. In order to do that you can either get the inner and outer bearing numbers from a...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Trailer Wiring is Connected
    There must be a short on your trailer's wire between the 12 volt accessory circuit you mentioned testing and the brake output circuit. Start at the back of the trailer connector and work your way back to the brake assemblies looking for any obvious shorts like exposed or cut wire and fix as needed. I attached a help article on trailer wiring troubleshooting for you to check out as well.

  • How to Determine if Trailer 7-Way is Upside Down for Determining Pin Out
    I attached a picture of a 7-way wiring diagram for you to check out to help show you where all of the pins of the connector are. If your 7-way is upside then yes the diagram would need to rotate 180 degrees. You can use the notch of the 7-way to determine if this the case. The square notch is normally on top of the connector so if yours is on the bottom then it is inverted.
