Video Transcript for Demco Trailer Brakes - Hydraulic Drum Brakes - 18788-87 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Demco 10 inch left hand and right hand hydraulic drum brake assemblies with the galvanized finish for 3,500 pound axles. Now, these are marine-grade hydraulic drum brake assemblies, which are great for boat trailers. They are specifically designed for use with surge-type trailer brake actuators. These are a sturdy corrosion-resistant steel construction. If you notice they have the galvanized backing plates. They do use the stainless steel spring hardware for corrosion resistance and they have a zinc plated wheel cylinder.

These are a Uni-Servo design, which means it's a single plunger design, so it delivers 15 to 20% braking when it's in reverse. These are manual adjustment brakes, you have to adjust the gear down here to adjust them, so they do require a periodic manual adjustment. If you look on the backing plate, there'll be two holes down here, access holes, that you use to put your tool through to adjust your brakes. Those holes are usually left open, but if you notice on these they do include the rubber plugs to cover those holes. That's just nice, it keeps the dirt and the grime out of the brake assemblies and off the brake shoes. Now this part number will include the left hand driver side brake assembly and the right hand passenger side brake assembly. Now the mounting bolts and the hardware are sold separately. A few specs on this.

The dimensions, there's a 10 inch diameter by 2 1/4 inch wide and the way that's measured, the diameter would be from this brake shoe all the way across to this brake shoe. So there's your 10 inch diameter. The 2 1/4 inch would be the width of the pad on the shoe, 2 1/4 inches. If you notice on the back there's the four holes so it does design for a four hole mounting, brake mounting flange bolt pattern. It does require the use of 10 inch brake drums.

The wheel size that'll fit on these brakes are 13 inch, 14 inch and 15 inch and again, they are designed for axles rated up to 3,500 pounds. The last thing I just want to show you is how you tell the left hand driver side from the right hand passenger side. Now on new assemblies they'll usually have a sticker, right here you can see R for right side, and this one will have L for left side, but if that sticker wasn't on there, the easiest way to tell is you look at the length of the pad on the brake shoes. This pad goes from here to here. This one's just from here to here. The shorter pad will be the primary shoe and that'll always face the front of the trailer so that's telling you that this is the left hand driver side assembly and the same way on this one.

The pad is from here to here. This pad is just from here to here. This is the shorter pad so that points to the front being the primary shoe and that tells you this is the right hand passenger side assembly. That should it for the review on the Demco 10 inch left hand and right hand hydraulic drum brake assemblies with the galvanized finish for 3,500 pound axles.

Perfect replacement on my 3500lb axle boat trailer, 1996 Trailrite. Brakes bolted right up. Galvanized finish was complete, and well done. These assemblies appear as if they will last for many many years over the original factory brakes. Outstanding price point. Wanted to go to electric disk, however I'm very happy with these replacement brakes, and for the price and stopping power I'm very happy. I highly recommend. Shipping time was rapid, and FREE. With the help of a friend, replacing these brakes, actuator, and bleeding the system was about 3 hours work. Well worth it! 505579

I needed brakes shoes, bearings, seals, piston and drums i.e. a complete rebuild on my boat trailer. I called etrailer to place the order. I was lucky enough to get Stacy to assist in getting everything I needed. Stacy was not only very knowledgeable but also enjoyable to work with. She was also patient with me as I had to put her on hold to get more information that I forgot to get before the call. She double checked all my needed items before placing the order.. She even took a minute for some small talk as we waited for the order to log. I've not had customer service like this in quite some time. After the order was placed, i realized that I made another measurement error and had to change the order. I called Stacy back and she updated the order and made the correction on the amount I owed... I actually saved a few bucks. Once again etrailer has customer service like no other online company I've done business with. Great job Stacy... Mike 457929

Ask the Experts about this Demco Trailer Brakes


  • Drum Brake Replacement Assemblies for Use with Titan Actuator
  • Thanks for the photo and tape measure. That makes it fairly easy to help you get what you need. You need 3500 lb single servo brake assemblies. My recommendation is the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Dacromet - 10" - Left/Right Hand # AKFBBRK-35-D. The Dacromet is for increased corrosion resistance. You could alternatively use the Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit # AKFBBRK-35 for a standard protection against corrosion or even upgrade to the Demco Galvanized set # 18788-87 for superior rust...

  • How to Reduce Brake Pad Pressure to Allow Hub Removal from Demco Kar Kaddy
  • If you have removed the tang washer and castle nut from the spindle on your tow dolly and the hub still will not come off the brake pads you can try adjusting the brakes to reduce the pad pressure. They could be gripping the inside drum surface enough to make hub removal difficult. The brakes for the Kar Kaddy, such as right-hand part # DMSB24428M, are self-adjusting but they still have a star wheel adjuster at the bottom of the assembly, like brake kit # 18788-87, that can be accessed...

  • What is the Best Material for Hydraulic Drum Brakes for a Salt Water Boat Trailer
  • Ideally, for a boat trailer and salt water applications, stainless steel is the best option which is only available in disc brake form. Galvanized and dacromet are the next steps down. I would be happy to make more specific recommendations if you can tell me what size brakes you need. To measure for drum brakes measure the inner diameter of the drum and the inner width where the pad material makes contact with the drum. I included a picture illustrating where to measure.
