  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gear allows for a more precise setting
  • E-coated backing plate resists wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assembly and off of the shoes
  • Brake mounting bolts are included
    • Nuts and lock washers (BRKH10BS) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter, Lippert (LCI), and AL-KO

  • Axle rating: 3,500 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Manual-Adjust Brake

With repeated use of this brake assembly, the brake shoes may move out of alignment, causing less efficient braking performance. To keep the brake shoes aligned and the brake assembly performing correctly, you should perform routine maintenance.


This brake assembly should be adjusted after installation and then as needed for the life of the brake. To adjust the brake, use a brake adjustment screw tool (sold separately) to turn the adjustment gear on the inside of the assembly. Continue to turn the gear until the drum surrounding the brake catches on the brake pads enough so that the hub can no longer be turned easily by hand. Then reverse the gear by about 10 clicks. A properly adjusted brake should drag slightly on the brake drum.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This brake assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This brake assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This brake has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on this brake assembly is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.


The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

This is the second trailer that I’ve installed these 3.5k brakes on. These are a direct bolt on for Dexter spring and torsion axles. The brakes assemblies are manufactured in China, but they’re built very well, easy to install and adjust.. They work perfectly! An exceptional value for the price. And as always etrailer shipped the same day that I ordered and packaged everything very well. Great customer service !! 671854

The product was delivered fast but came with no instructions as to which wire goes where. both wires are green and under the trailer they are black and white so the brakes don't work, I'm guessing the wires are connected wrong. 572419


Comments
The green wires that exit the magnet on the brake assembly do not have polarity, so it doesnt matter which wire connects to the brake circuit and which grounds to the trailer. Either way, it should work. If the assembly is not working, Id recommend using a circuit tester like part # 40376
Circuit Tester Kit
$69.16
to test the brake circuit to make sure the power is reaching the magnet.

    The bolt pattern of the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-35L that you referenced is 4 on 4 inch. If you check out the picture I attached you will see all the dimensions of the flange. You might try measuring yours again to be certain as it should measure 2-7/8 inches and not 2-3/4 inches.

  • How To Replace Brake Assembly And Hubs On 2005 Fleetwood Gear Box ASV Travel Trailer
    I can help you replace the braking assemblies and bearings on your 2005 Fleetwood Gear Box ASV Travel Trailer. You most likely have 12 inch hubs so you need part # AKEBRK-7-SA for the braking assemblies. You want to measure your hub to be sure you have a 12 inch hub. I am unable to narrow down the bearing numbers from the information you gave me, I would need to know the bearing numbers that are stamped into the bearings themselves.

  • Replacement Hub/Drum Recommendation for 1996 Coachmen Catalina
    Based on what I know so far about your trailer the hub/drum that would most likely be what you need is the Dexter hub/drum part # 84546UC3-EZ which is for a 3,500 lb axle like what your brake assemblies are for. This comes with bearings and a seal plus a cap. You'd want to verify your bolt pattern as being 5 on 4-1/2 inches like what this hub fits. If you have a different bolt pattern I attached a page that has all of the 3,500 lb hub drums we offer for you to check out. You'll be able...

  • Replacement Dexter Brake Assemblies for 023-027-00 and 023-026-00
    We have direct replacements for the two brake assembly part numbers you listed. You would want part # AKEBRK-35R and # AKEBRK-35L. Or, for never adjust assemblies the part # AKEBRK-35L-SA and # AKEBRK-35R-SA would work as well. Most likely you have a Dexter 3,500 lb axle and the correct bearings would be the # BK2-100. However, since I do not know for sure what axle you have you would need to pull the hubs of your trailer to get the numbers stamped on the bearings so that we can pick...

  • 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Electric Drum Brakes for a 2013 Keystone Springdale 303 Travel Trailer
    There are some 10 inch hub/drum assemblies that take 10 inch brakes so it isn't uncommon. Your existing brakes should have the 4 bolt mounting pattern so you can use brake assembly # AKEBRK-35L for the left and # AKEBRK-35R for the right. I have linked a couple of videos on these brakes for you.

  • Replacement Brake Magnets for 10 Inch Brakes on 3500 Pound Trailer Axles
    Based more on the testing you have done than the appearance of the magnets I would say that they would need to be replaced if there isn't a wiring issue somewhere. You can use your meter to make sure that the proper voltage is on the wiring. For 1 replacement magnet for a 10 inch brake assembly I recommend # AKBRKR-M10. It comes with a replacement spring and clip also. I have linked a video review of this magnet for you. I have also linked our help article on testing brake magnets.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Not Working After Replacing Magnets and Confirming Power to Magnets
    I suggest you first verify that one of the two wires from the brake assembly is solidly grounded to the trailer frame. (It does not matter which one of the two wires from the magnet connects to the brake controller output wire and which one connects to chassis ground). The ground wire should have a ring terminal and be tightly screwed to a clean, rust- and paint-free surface on the trailer frame. You might try roughing-up the frame surface before attaching the ring terminal. You indicate...

  • How to Choose the Correct Brake Assembly for Trailer Axles
    You will need to do some measuring to determine if the 10 Inch Electric Brake Assembly LH, item # AKEBRK-35L, is the correct assembly for your trailer. Measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoe, the width of the lining and the distance between the mounting holes on center. It may also help if you can determine the manufacturer of your brake. Once you have these measurements you can choose the correct assembly for your axles. It is recommended to change both of the brake assemblies...

  • How to Determine if Trailer Brake Magnets/Brake Assemblies and Hub and Drums Need to Be Replaced
    The way you are describing testing your brake magnets is the way we recommend testing the brake magnets, by connecting the multimeter to the blue brake wire behind the brake controller. When testing your trailer with 4, 10 inch brake drums, the maximum amperage should be between 15.0-16.3 amps at 12-13 volts. Assuming the appropriate voltage is reaching the brakes, the 0.025 amps reading is much too low for your trailer brake magnets. I have attached a help article on testing brake magnets...

    It sounds as if you may have to adjust the trailer brakes or have a wiring issue. When the 10 inch brakes, part # AKEBRK-35L and # AKEBRK-35R, are installed on the trailer the brake magnet should release as long as there is no power to the magnets. The spring should not interfere with the release of the magnet as long as the brake assembly is assembled correctly, you should verify that the brake assemblies are assembled correctly. There is no adjustment of the brake arm that holds the...

  • Can Electric Brakes be Used on a Boat Trailer
    Traditionally, trailer manufacturers did not use electric brakes on boat trailers because the brake magnet wiring and trailer wiring did not always have the best insulation or water protection. These days, more and more manufacturers are using electric brakes on boat trailers due to improvements in wiring insulation and heat shrink connectors. If you are going to use electric brakes, I strongly recommend using heat shrink butt connectors, like part # DW05745-10, when splicing the wires...

  • Brake Magnet Recommendation for a 12x2 Brake Assembly
    The strength of a brake assembly isn't based on the sensitivity of the brake magnet. The best way to pick out a brake magnet is to get one that is rated the same as the brake assemblies. Going with a higher rated brake magnet won't give you any additional braking power. It will only make the brakes seem more sensitive and hard to setup with a brake controller. If you have a 12 inch brake assemblies you would want the part # AKBRKR-M12. This magnet works for 5,200 to 7,000 pound 12 inch...

    We can certainly help you get set up with what you need to tow your trailer. Starting with the brakes on the trailer, (which I am going to assume are operational) each brake magnet will have two leads coming out of it. One lead needs to be grounded to the trailer, the other needs to be connected to a 10 ga. wire that runs to the tongue of the trailer. Run one lead from the brakes on the other side to this wire as well. On the trailer side, you will need a 7 way connector plug, part # H20046,(there...

  • How To Tell The Difference From Right and Left Electric Brake Assemblies
    The right and left orientation is determined if you are standing behind the trailer looking towards the tow vehicle. The left side is the drivers side and the right side is the passengers side. Tthe shorter brake pad will always be in the front of the assembly and the longer brake pad on the rear of the assembly, the reason is that the shorter pad will contact the drum first to slow the trailer down and the larger pad will then contact the drum to finish stopping the trailer, so both...

  • Where are the Ground Wires Located on Electric Trailer Brakes
    Electric brakes have 2 wires located at the back. One is for power and the other is for ground (it doesn't matter which is used for which function).

The only other place that would carry a ground is the main ground wire that is connected to the pin in the 5 o'clock position on the 7-Way of your trailer (see attached picture).

    Yes, the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # AKEBRK-35L is the left hand brake to fit your Dexter drum. For the right hand side you'll need # AKEBRK-35R. If you would prefer self-adjusting brakes you would use # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right and # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brakes That Only Work in Reverse
    It is possible you need new brakes, but not necessarily. The brakes locking up when in reverse is usually because the brakes have recently been installed and they were installed backwards. Brakes are specific to either the left or right side. If they're installed on the wrong sides then you'll feel more braking when going in reverse than forward. The brakes still engage when going forward but possibly not strong enough to feel. If these are the original brakes, then I would not...

    Trailer electric brake magnets are non-polarized.

    On each individual electric brake magnet the amperage draw would be 3.0 to 3.2 max amps at 12 to 13 volts on 7-inch brake magnets and 3.2 to 4.0 max amps at 12 to 13 volts on 10 and 12-inch brake magnets. The max amperage draw for the brake magnets on a single axle trailer (2 brakes) would be 6.3 to 6.8 max amps on a 7-inch brake system and 7.5 to 8.2 max amps on 10 and 12-inch brake system. The amps will be higher if using a tandem axle or triple axle trailer. I am including a link...
