Drum brake assembly provides superior protection from corrosion and lets you reverse without actuating. Designed for use with hydraulic brake actuators that do not include reverse lockouts. Fits most 10", 12" and 13" wheels.


Features:

  • Marine-grade hydraulic drum brake assembly is great for boat trailers
    • Specifically designed for use with surge-style trailer brake actuators
  • Dacromet plating provides superior corrosion resistance for freshwater or saltwater use
    • 500-Hour salt-spray rating
  • Stainless steel springs
  • Free-backing design lets you reverse without trailer brakes being activated
  • Hydraulic pressure is contained by wheel cylinder


Specs:

  • Right-hand assembly - passenger's side
  • Dimensions: 8-1/2" wide x 2-1/4" thick
  • Pad lining: 37 sq in
  • Wheel size: 10", 12" or 13"
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 4 on 4"
  • Mounting studs included
  • Center hole diameter: 3"
  • Axle rating: up to 3,000 lbs
  • Warranty:
    • 1-Year for operation
    • 2-Year for corrosion


The unique free-backing design, patented by DICO, lets your trailer move in reverse without actuating the brakes. When you begin backing up, the brake shoes are firm against the drum, as in a braking situation. As you continue in reverse, however, the shoes turn with the drum until the lining pressure is released and you are able to back up freely.


These brakes are designed to eliminate friction between the shoes and drum when you are driving in reverse. A trailer breakaway kit will not be effective should your trailer disconnect from your tow vehicle when backing up.

  • Availability of Wheel Cylinders for 13 inch Wheels
    We carry wheel cylinders that could potentially work for your brake assemblies. But without knowing what assemblies your trailer has it's hard for me to say for certain what you would need. You will need to measure the diameter of your brake assemblies and then check out the link I attached that will take you to a page that has all of the wheel cylinders we carry.

  • Replacement Hydraulic Drum Brakes for 15 Inch Wheels

  • Replacement Bearings, Seals and Brake Components for 1997 Jayco RV
