I have had this item installed for approximately one year on our 42 foot, 18,000 pound 5th wheel. It was easy to install and set up and has worked flawlessly ever since. We have put over 6,000 miles on the 5th wheel since the installation. I will definitely buy again if the need arises.



Its been another year and the parts are still functioning flawlessly.


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.


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.


Order was received timely. I had questions regarding a possible design change going from two spring to single spring. I contacted customer service and they replied swiftly. Not being sure of the answer the customer service rep. Conner contacted the manufacturer to determine proper answer. All is good , apparently Dexter has changed from 2 spring to single spring at the top. The attached pictures show what I am referring to. Look at the wiring in the faulty picture. Of course pulling the hub was my last thing I looked at. Hence why I was getting a ground short and no brakes.
etrailer customer service get A+++


One is what I had and the second is etrailer. All I ordered arrived in good shape. Everything fit perfectly. I will definitely use etrailer again soon!!

Mike A.


Great. Product as advertised. Fit perfectly. Always use etrailer. Thanks again.


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

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


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


I had the brake lining shatter off of one of the shoes. This happened within the first 100 miles after putting the new brakes on. Tore the drum up beyond repair. Working on getting the brakes replaced under warranty but I had to ship them the parts back first. Trailer is up on blocks until then.


Product was an exact fit. Much easier than fighting springs and hold downs even with the right tools. It took about 45 min. per wheel start to finish. Etrailer was very helpful when ordering parts.


Ordered lots of parts on Monday, received most of them by Thursday. The received parts were well packaged and undamaged. A few of the parts they didn't have in stock so they had those drop-shipped to me which should be delivered in the next couple of days.
No supplier I have ordered any parts from has such a great technical reference web site or personal customer support. Yea, Rebecca - Well Done! Yes, I'm very happy with the pricing.
Thanks for your great support and I look forward to doing business with them again. More info to follow as soon as I can get the parts installed on my trailer.


Exact replacement and easy to install.


I needed an order change and paula took care of everything even shipping came day early so i could get trailer reinspected. Will be my only place to order trailer parts ETRAILER

Thomas G.


Very well Etrailer came thru with the parts ias in dire need of in a timely manner. I needed brake assembliies and drums for my 5th wheel Etrailer researched and very quickly got me the needed parts Not all parts were Dexter but that was expained to me. And the substitues worked very well. I will be a returning customer for sure ss they were very helpful while ordering and thru checkout.


Excellent product, exact replacement. Great customer service from etrailer, and product was delivered 3 days early. Thanks.


Christina J thanks for all your help the brake assembly was delivered extremely quick and installed easily!


You didn't have the brake assembly I wanted but had the 7k at a higher price. Was told there was no difference between the two. I bought the 7K but would like to know if there is no difference, why I was charged the higher price. I needed one so I didn't have much choice. Not Happy. I'll think twice and think again before purchasing from etrailer again.


I was worried about putting brakes back together, this is an easy repair with only 5 nuts to put on and rewire. Information on getting the right or left brake was very good and made this an easy project.



Great, very happy


Product installed easily. Much more efficient than replacing the parts I would have needed and less costly. Part used on a Dexter 7000 lb RV axle.



Working well, as it should but it is on a 5th wheel and doesnt have s lot of moles on it.


I had a dragging brake. When I disassembled, found bottom adjuster was dislodged and unattached spring. Magnet was very much melted. I reassembled the brake assembly good enough to travel to final designation. I ordered this brake assembly, p/N 23-465 for passenger side forward axle and it fit perfectly. I've driven approximately 3,000 miles since repair without issue. I highly recommend this product and company


eTrailer shipped the product the same day and I received these assemblies 2 days later. Great service!

Very easy product to install. Looking forward to getting my trailer on the road and test them out. Keep in mind you'll need to purchase the plugs for the backplate as the old ones usually are bridle and probably won't seal out the elements.


Excellent customer service and the brake units work great!

Jerry R.


I traded last summer for a new one but the brakes worked just fine.


Replacement for 6000 lbs. original equipment brakes. Hoping for more stopping power as I usually tow near the limit of the trailer.
Installation was easy and straight-forward.
First impression is not much different but of course new brakes need to be burnished. The effectiveness is sure to increase. Overall happy :)


Worked well to replace grease covered shoes and magnet. Lower cost than replacing individual components.


Easy to install. I have taken several trips since then. I would buy this product again from etrailer!


I discovered my brakes on the right side of my trailer were not working by feeling the drums after driving just 2 miles. They were cold, other side hot. Took apart and found no adjusters on ether wheel. Just part of adjuster spring on one wheel. Magnets were warn. So I just replaced the whole brake plate, cheeped and faster. They work great now. This I believe was caused by a blowout.


Great price for a complete brake replacement. Way easier and not much more than just replacing the shoes. I upgraded from the 6000# that were on my fifth wheel to these 7000# ones. Also like the self adjusting feature.


Plug and play, towed a large 5th wheel with brakes that didn't work for years decided to try this , worked great!, Had Each wheel done in about 20 minutes I'll never just replace brake shoes Again... buy the kit bolt it on,,, walk away. Bought two more for the rear axle, if I don't have to crawl underneath and adjust them every Thousand Miles that will be icing on the cake

  • Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brakes Not Working on Camper
    The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, such as # 23-465, require an initial adjustment, as you have done already. You are correct in your question when you stated that you will want to simply turn the wheel backwards on the brake assembly until you get just a slight drag. I have attached a video demonstration on the initial setup for these assemblies that you may find helpful. I recommend pulling the hub on your trailer to make sure everything is still properly in place with...

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brakes That Have Not Adjusted Properly After 300 Miles of Travel
    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...

  • Recommendation for Replacing Electric Brakes on a 7k Dexter Axle with Brakes Mounted Upside Down
    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...

  • Info Needed to Find Self Adjusting Trailer Brakes
    The Dexter Nev-r-Adjust assembly part # 23-464 is a self-adjusting 12 inch by 2 inch assembly for a 7,000 lb axle that has a matching right side of # 23-465. If your trailer has a different size/capacity need let me know what that info is and I will set you up with the parts you are in need of. I attached an install video for the assemblies mentioned as well.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Does the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brake Kit Come As a Pair
    Not a dumb question at all! Brake assemblies like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 are either sold in matching pairs or as single brake assemblies for either the left or right side of the trailer # 23-464 (left) or # 23-465 (right).

    Yes, the self-adjusting version of the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-181 is the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-465. This assembly is for the right hand side and if you need the left hand side you can use part # 23-464 or part # 23-464-465 for both right and left hand side.

  • Nev-R-Adjust Electric Drum Trailer Brakes for a Trailer with 7K Dexter Axles
    Most 7K axles are going to use 12 inch by 2 inch brakes. To determine if these are the right size you can measure the internal diameter of the drum and the width where the pads would make contact with the drum. I am confident that it will turn out to be 12 x 2 inches. For Dexter Nev-R-Adjust electric trailer brakes for 7K axles use # 23-465 for the right hand side and # 23-464 for the left hand side. These brake assemblies mount on a 5-bolt mounting flange. Even though these are Nev-R-Adjust...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Replacing Dexter 023-357
    The Dexter part number 023-357-00 is a 12x2 electric brake assembly. The correct RH assembly to use to replace what you have would be the part # 23-459 and for the LH assembly you would want the part # 23-458 if you have 6K axles.
