OEM Dexter parts well worth the cost. Brakes are very important in the scenarios I use my trailer. You definitely feel 6 brand new brake setups behind you! etrailer kept me well informed through the process on order status. Shipping was quick. Will be shipping etrailer for any of my trailer stuff going forward.


etrailer always the best service with quality products. Brake assembly is excellent quality.


My 40' 5th wheel came with Dexter axles & manual adjust brakes. They were a constant pain to get adjusted evenly and so they didn't overheat. These self-adjusting brakes are an easy upgrade. No more uneven brakes, even when applied hard. If I get another trailer with manual adjust brakes I will upgrade to these first thing. The best upgrade I've done on my 5th wheel in the past 5 years.


Exact replacement and the installation was easy. You will need to do a few stops from about 40 mph using the trailer brakes for the new brakes to adjust.


My issue “IS NOT” with etrailer, whom I cant say enough good things about! Always great customer service and fast shipping, etc.

My issue is with Dexter. My brake assemblies arrived with damaged wires due to the way they were packaged. The boxes were not torn up so UPS wasn’t hard on them in shipping, its the simple fact the wires are on the bottom with the weight and pressure from the brake assemblies laying on them. More care needs to be taken by Dexter to protect the wires in packaging for storage/shipping to the consumer. The wires are a critical component for electric brakes to function.

You can’t just stop in the middle when you have everything torn apart and send them back, so I rectified the problem as best I could with some marine heat shrink, but I should not have to be fixing anything on brand new parts!


Quinn did sn excellent job on my order We compared pricing and informed me as to del8very times, I received email updates and was informed as to when to expect delivery. Oustanding and professional customer service, Highly recommend etrailer your trailer needs.


Love the dexter brakes, however their packaging is inadequate. Out of the 4 brake assemblies I bought 2 of them were partially disassembled.

Oh no! Customer Service will be in touch to assist you.


Everything was there when we got the order. Everything is as advertised. Very satisfied



I have pulled my 5th wheel trailer at least 4000 miles since the brake rebuild. Everything has only improved. Brake pads seated in and the brakes work great. Having all new parts does give me a feeling of confidence in the Colorado Mounatins.


Troy, the service rep that I dealt with on my most recent order from, did a fantastic job helping me identify the exact parts I needed to replace the wheel bearings and brake assemblies on my 40 foot Big Horn 5th Wheel. I believe the prices were very reasonable and the service was faster than I expected. Thanks Troy, and I'll definitely recommend as a super place to get your trailer repair parts and accessories.

Charlie P.


All the products are working well!


Definitely could have been packaged so the brake assemblies were not contacting each other during shipment. They were not damaged, but some packing material between the assemblies is preferred. These are direct replacements/upgrades for my 2013 Fuzion 2 axle 5th Wheel 12x2 electric brakes. Dexter makes quality products and these are of their usual top quality! Highly recommend these as a replacement/upgrade because stopping is a wonderful thing!

Russell K.


Still operational, no problems.


I ordered a set of brake assemblies for a dual axle 14K # trailer on Thursday with expected delivery on late Monday or Tuesday & they were delivered 2 pm Saturday. I was amazed at the prompt service with parts well packed in 2 boxes. Now-a-days when money is tight we order online & take a chance on anything to save a dollar....the biggest surprise....Made in USA...Thank you so much for supporting American Industry.... 2nd time ordering from etrailer & same great service.

Don B.


Product working great


Faster delivery than originally scheduled. Good product. Installed easily.



After a year and several thousand miles of towing we have had no further brake issues after installing this. Very happy! Great product!


I ordered these as replacement brakes for our 42' (21,000 lb) camper. I AM SO HAPPY! My braking capabilities have improved over the standard non-adjusting model by 100%. They have performed great. I actually can stop for yellow lights.

Jim I.


Products are still preforming as expected


I bought replacements for all four wheels, even though only one of the originals was broken. I have only replaced the one that was broken, holding the others in reserve.

That said, I am very happy with the one I installed. As with any items I have purchased from, I am happy with the quality of the products, the speed with which those products arrive, the cost of the products, and the convenience of purchasing from them.

I will continue to purchase from this company and tell my friends of their products.

Thank you.


Robert E.


works as it is supposed to work. No issues.


I must tell you, my fellow etrailer shoppers and handi-man repair individuals that approx. 1 yr. ago I purchased 4- Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake replacement assembies for my Big Horn 36ft. 5th wheel from etrailer and had the pleasure to be connected to customer service Rep. Phyllis L.. Phyllis went out of her way to make sure that I would receive the correct parts needed to get me on my way to our snowbird location 2200 miles away from home! The Dexter trailer brake assemblies were very easy to install and the initial adjustment was simple. 5000 miles later they are working very well.
Thanks etrailer , Phyllis L.


Seems good. Right fit, did what it's supposed to. Haven't driven down the road yet.


Easy to install.


Great job was delivered a day early 687 miles away nice job


Bought these Dexter because I wanted to replace unknown manufacturer of OEM brakes on newer fifth wheel. This product is "Made in USA" and quality is very good. My only complaint is that the rims of all four backing plates had severe scratches in the black paint and I repainted them before installation to reduce rusting. They got some rough handling somewhere. The shipping package was not damaged and each plate was wrapped in brown paper.


Shipment was on time. Quality of product was excellent will recommend your company to anyone thank you for helping us get the right parts


These are the OEM Dexter brakes the only one anybody should use, excellent product. Greg S. Was very spot on for my order processing. My order came fast as can be thanks to Greg and all the back support team involved. Thank you

Jayant P.


Not good , they all got contaminated with grease what a mess.

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.


It sounds like you may have a broken grease seal. It looks like you may have a 7,000 lb Dexter axle. You will need to measure the part of the spindle where the grease seal rides. If it measures 2.125" you will need part # BK3-210. If it measures 2.25" you will need part # BK3-200.


One of the assemblies failed with less than 1000 miles.


Again etrailer is my go to online trailer parts supply store. I fix a lot of trailers and etrailer always has what I need at competitive prices.


Easy to install and have used on several trips since then. I would buy this product from etrailer again without hesitation!


Good product the never adjust brakes work fabulous! They adjusted themselves up right away after installation, they work better on trailer then when it was new. The only complaint I have is it would of been nice to have new mounting hardware for each brake.

  • Can Electric Trailer Brakes for 7,000 Pound Axles be Used on a 4,500 Pound Trailer
    You might be able to use 7K brakes on your trailer provided that the drums used are large enough and that the mounting pattern for the brake assemblies matches the pattern on the brake mounting flanges on the axles. Brakes for 7K axles are going to be 12x2 inches and have a 5-bolt mounting pattern. You will likely find though that the brakes will be overly aggressive on lighter trailers. It is recommended to use brakes that are of the appropriate capacity for your trailer's gross trailer...

  • Should I Be Able to Hear Trailer Brakes Hum Constantly with Manual Override Engaged
    Thanks for your continued support, Ryan! While it's normal to be able to hear electric brake drums, like your Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-464, humming when power is being applied to them, I recommend trying to physically move your trailer tires before investigating every inch of your wiring and magnets (which would be the next step). Sometimes the magnets can be a little quiet so what I recommend doing is lifting your trailer up by the frame enough for the...

  • Installation of Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies and Importance of Orientation
    The braking will not work as well because the primary brake shoe will not be in the correct location and you may also experience premature brake shoe wear because gravity will pull on the magnet lever slightly activating the brakes while driving. The assemblies are labeled for the correct side to avoid that issue. For instance the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 12" - Left Hand - 7,000 lbs # 23-464 should be installed on the driver's side. I've attached a video...

    That appears to be a plug that the wires go through when passing from the inside of the assembly to the outside. It is present so that the wires do not get cut on the metal.

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Grease Seal for a Trailer
    The seal needed is going to depend on the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. Or if you know the part number of the hub I could look it up to determine the correct seal. The grease seal though is meant to hold the grease in the hub and not let it leak out the back of the hub. If the drum is filling with grease then it is leaking out somewhere else. You will need to make sure that the correct bearings and races are being used. There are some measurements...

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for Dexter 7k Automatic Adjusting Assemblies
    The brake assemblies you have are Dexter 12 inch assemblies with a 7k capacity. That means the current part numbers you would want are # 23-464 for the left hand side and part # 23-465 for the right hand side. The part # 23-464-465 that you referenced actually is both of these assemblies kitted together.

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies for 7,000 Pound Trailer Axle, 2009 Heartland Bighorn 3370RL
    It is best to confirm the axle capacity before purchasing brake assemblies. There should be a sticker or label on the axles with information such as their capacity. If you do find that your axles are 7,000 pound axles, I recommend using the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, left hand side # 23-464 and right hand side # 23-465. These brake assemblies automatically adjust to provide optimum performance and braking power. In addition to eliminating the need for brake adjustments,...

  • Can 7,000 lb Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brakes be Used on 6,000 lb Axle
    Yes, so long as your 6,000 lb Dexter axle has a 5-bolt brake mounting flange (which it should), then you can use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 12" - Right Hand - 7,000 lbs # 23-465. If you also need the left hand side the correct part number is the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 12" - Left Hand - 7,000 lbs # 23-464.

  • Is it Okay to Use Nev-R-Adjust Brakes with Nev-R-Lube Hubs
    As long as the brake assemblies you are replacing are 12x2, you can certainly use the Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies. The brake assembly and the bearing system you are using would be unrelated, so there is no reason why you could not use the Nev-R-Adjust assembly. There is also no reason why you could not upgrade to the 7000 lb capacity assembly like the # 23-464 and # 23-465. The brake shoes will be better and the magnet will be a bit stronger.

  • Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation for 6K or 7K Axles with 8 Lug Bolt Pattern
    The Dexter 6K and 7K axles are very similar to each other, so it can be difficult to determine their capacity just by looks. Dexter axles typically have a specs plate near the center of the axle, but there is a chance that it could have come off. The next place I would look for an indication of the axle capacity is the identification plate on the tongue of the trailer. There should be a plate that lists the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). That should...

  • Will Hydraulic Brake Hubs Work With Electric Brakes
    My contact at Dexter said that the hubs will be the same for hydraulic and electric brakes on their 7,000 pound axle. For electric brakes for your 7,000 pound axles, I recommend the 12 Inch Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-465 for the right hand side and # 23-464 for the left hand side. These brake assemblies do not require any manual adjustments to be made, they automatically adjust to deliver optimum performance. I have attached an installation video of these brakes for you.

  • Dexter 7,000 lb Rated Brake Assembly Recommendation for Trailer
    Dexter would be the final authority on the capacities of their axles. For 7k rated Dexter brake assemblies you would want the part # 23-465 for the right hand side and part # 23-464 for the left hand side. What you described is not uncommon for Dexter axles. There are other instances where the difference between the capacities of two axle setups is either the assemblies or the hubs they put on them.

  • Will the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assembly # 23-464 Fit on a 2007 Newmar Cypress 5th Wheel
    I spoke with the parts department at Newmar and he told me they only use Dexter brake assemblies on their trailers, so the Dexter 12 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, # 23-464 (left) and # 23-465 (right), should work with your 7,000 lbs axles on your 2007 Newmar Cypress 35KSRL fifth wheel trailer. To confirm that they will work, you can compare the mounting bolt pattern of these brakes to the bolt pattern of your brake mounting flange or to your current brake assemblies.

  • How Do Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Drum Trailer Brake Assemblies Work
    Besides the initial adjustment, which is not required but still recommended, you will not need to adjust the Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, # 23-464, unless you wanted to. According to Dexter, during travel, the brakes will automatically rotate an adjuster assembly to close the gap caused by lining wear. The brakes will remain in the optimum braking adjustment for safer braking. The Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for the right hand side is # 23-465.

    The brake assemblies like the 12 inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, item # 23-464 and # 23-465, that you ordered, are designed to be installed with the brake magnet below the axle, not above. We cannot recommend installing the Nev-R-Adjust assemblies upside down. I would check the axle. If it is a straight axle with no arch in it, then the axle has been installed upside down. If it is an arched axle with the bend oriented upwards, then the mounting flange has been welded on upside...

    While Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-464 and # 23-465 can be manually adjusted, it is highly recommended that you do not manually adjust them. They were not designed to be adjusted that way and can be easily over adjusted and difficult to correct if over adjusted. Since you have said that you have already driven the trailer over 300 miles and they are still not adjusted properly, you likely have something else wrong. I would...
