Video Transcript for Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the 10 inch Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes. They're available for the driver's side and the passenger side, or as a kit with both. They come in weight ratings of 3,000 pounds, 3,500 pounds, or 4,400 pounds. That's going to depend on which axle you have on your trailer.One of our customers, Paul, wrote in, "What is the difference between the 3,500 and 4,400 assembly and how do I know which axle I have on my trailer" Well that's easy, Paul. There should be a tag or information stamped into the axle. You just want to see what you have there, and refer to our site to get the appropriate one.

The 3,500 and the 4,400 are the weight ratings.This electric brake assembly is going to be a direct replacement for ones that may be existing on your trailer, or you can upgrade your trailer to add these. The manual inaudible 00:00:47 at the bottom will get a signal from the brake controller on your vehicle. Depending on the sensitivity of the brake controller, that will vary the magnitude of the magnetism on the magnet. The magnet will grab your drum brake, forcing the pads outward, causing the brakes to apply.The brake pads on our assembly are going to be bonded pads. What's nice about this versus riveted pads, is that as your brake pads wear, no rivets can poke through causing any damage to your drum assembly.

There is a left and right brake assembly. There's a sticker located on here that will tell you whether it's a left or right hand side. Another way you can help identify if you have the appropriate side is that this is a leading trailing pad set up, so the smaller pad is your leading pad, which goes towards the front, and the trailing is the larger pad, which is located towards the rear.It comes ready to wire, so you just need to hook it up to your old assembly's wiring if you've replaced it. Or if you're running new ones, you'll need to make sure you have one connection to ground and the other one connected to your brake controller signal. It doesn't matter which one's connected to which, either one will work.It'll connect to your axle with a four bolt pattern.

The hardware you'll need to connect it to your axles comes included with our assembly. When your tire's on, and the system's fully assembled, you can adjust it through the open slot, here at the back. The kit includes a small cover that can be placed over this, to seal up your assembly, once you're done adjusting.We're going to start with our wheel off. Since we're upgrading, by adding brakes to our system instead of just replacing an old assembly, we'll need to replace this hub with our new drum brake hub. You'll need to take the cap off here, at the end.

You'll just hammer this off. Below here, you're going to have your nut. To remove the nut, you're going to need to take the cotter pin, it's found beneath. We're going to have to straighten it back out, so we'll just grab it here, with our needle-nosed pliers. If you are planning on re-using that cap we knocked off, I do recommend using a rubber mallet for that, so you don't damage it. Once you've got the cotter pin straight, you can just pull the cotter pin out. We're going to set it aside. We've got a napkin laid down for everything, so that way, we don't make a mess.Now, we'll remove the nut, located here in the center, using a pair of channel locks. I'm just going to unthread that, all the way. And we're going to set it aside.Our whole hub assembly can now be pulled off. You want to note, though, that there's going to be a washer and a bearing that's just going to fall out, so we're going to use our needle-nose pliers to catch those. We'll set those aside, and now we can set our hub aside. Now, since we're adding drum brakes, we won't be re-installing that hub, nor any of the components except for the nut and the cotter pin and the washer. We won't be re-using the bearings.Now you're going to want to remove all that grease that's on there. And we can now install our drum brake assembly. You want to make sure you've got the wires and anything else out of the way, here on the back. Now, if you had an old assembly on yours, now's the time to remove it from your hub. There'll be four nuts on the back you'll need to remove, and you'll need to cut the two electrical wire that go to your old hub. Now, we can slide on our new hub. If you're just upgrading your brakes, there won't be one to remove, you'll just be sliding this on.Now we'll go around back and install our hardware. On the back side, your studs are going to poke through the hub flange. We're going to install a nut onto each stud. We'll now tighten down all our hardware, using an 11/16ths socket. You may need a wrench for some of these ones here. If you can't get to it with a socket, you may need to use a wrench.Now, if you're replacing your old brake assembly, you'll just want to re-install your hub in reverse order that you removed it. If you're upgrading your system, by adding these brake components, you'll need to purchase a new drum, with bearings and seal, which all is available here at etrailer.com. The new assembly will just slide on, if you are replacing it. On the other side, we'll install our bearing, followed by the washer that we removed. You want to make sure you get that pushed in there, so we can install our nut, which is the next component.The only thing I want to mention, as we're doing this process, you want to make sure to use plenty of grease. You'll see here, at the end of our axle, we do have a grease circ. We did repack all of our bearings, but we're going to make sure to use that grease circ, at the end, to finish filling it with grease. If you don't have that grease circ, you may want to pack additional grease inside your assembly. After you've got your bearings adjusted, you'll install your cotter pin, followed by your cap.We've gone ahead and put our tire back on, now. I find it easier to adjust the brakes, because you've got a little more leverage, and you can feel what it's going to feel like, when it's fully assembled. You're looking for a slight amount of drag. We've got just a little bit too much drag on this wheel, so we're going to adjust it, here at the back.You'll have access to your adjuster through the openings here, at the back. You can use a flat plated screwdriver, or they do have special drum brake adjustment tools, and you just want to turn this star wheel. Turning this wheel will adjust the tension of your brake pads, against the drum. One way to do this is tighten it down all the way, until your wheel stops moving, and then back it off. This ensures that you made good contact, and you've got the right amount of drag.And there we go, we've got just a little bit of drag, you can see the wheel still spins freely, but will, eventually, come to a stop, because of that slight amount of drag. Once you're finished adjusting, we can insert the plastic caps on the back of our backing plate. Now we're ready to connect our wiring.I'm now going to use some heat shrink yellow butt connectors, to make our connection for our wiring, here. Our blue wire is our brake signal wire, and our white wire is ground. If these are already run on your vehicle, because you're just replacing it, you'll just make a connection. Either color can go to either wire. If you're adding this to your system, you're going to need to run your own brake signal wire from your seven pole connector back, and also a ground wire. These colors may be different on your trailer.We'll then use a heat gun to shrink down our heat shrink butt connectors. On the back of your backing plate, you'll find a small, plastic clip. You can take your wiring and just snap it onto that. You do want to make sure that you leave yourself some slack, though, because your suspension is going to be moving up and down, and you don't want to yank out the wires. We are going to actually to it like this, so we have some slack. We'll now repeat this same process on the other side.And that completes our look at the ten inch Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes.

Received quickly, packaging in good shape, but 2 of the backing plates (1 L, 1 R) looked like they might have been dropped and the shoes had shifted on the backing plate to the point I had to take the springs loose and re-assemble everything. On one of them the star wheel had come completely out. Easy fix, but it's the kind of luck I have. Otherwise easy to install, comes with the nuts to install like it shown in the pic, even though the description says not. 409002

OEM replacement of original. Some paint touch up was required, but very well constructed and a snap to install. The only thing lacking was lock washers and 18 AWG heat shrink butt connectors to complete the re-wiring. 437722

This is my second time ordering from etrailer and I cannot be any happier with their prices and/or service. Due to MY SAFETY and the inherited LIABILTY of trailer brakes, I chose to purchase these Dexter OEM replacements. They are exact replacements and I am sure that they will work perfectly. Do yourself a favor and DON'T SETTLE for NON-OEM replacements. If an accident occurs, every component will be inspected for correctness. 446986

When I ordered the parts I found I could order the whole kit for less than what it would cost for just the parts I needed so that's what I ordered. The brakes I received were a perfect fit (an exact match for what I had).. Everything went back together very quickly and a year after installing the parts my trailer brakes are still working fine. I am very satisfied and the next time I need trailer parts, etrailer.com will be one of the first places I look. 489958

I decided to replace all my brakes and hubs on a recent trailer acquisition. It was more economical to get kits rather than parts. I have purchased from etrailer before and found what I needed on their site. Packages arrived promptly and in good condition. My order was accurate and installed easily. My new brakes are working well. Also I found a lower price and was refunded the difference by their company policy. Very satisfied. 505540

Replaceing the worn out made in China assemblies with these. The Dexters have a "drain slot" at the bottom which should let the dirt and water pass through better, thereby reducing the crud that builds up inside. The axel assembly with the China parts was not purchased from etrailer... 729229

This was my first time changing hubs and drums. The etrailer video was super helpful, which made installing the hubs and drums a snap.

I will be an etrailer customer again! 713614

I put Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" on my single axle trailer about one year ago. The trailer plus load weight equals 2000 pounds. I know that single axle trailers normally do not come with brakes, but, I pull my unit around 2k miles round trip every year on vacation and this WAS THE BEST, AND SAFEST INVESTMENT I COULD OF MADE. They work very well. 703355

The customer service has been great. I reordered the Dexter brand brake kit after first receiving the Chinese version. Better quality, stock parts and US Made. The Dexter brake linings are a bit thicker and shaped for easier break in. 691802

  • Kit to Upgrade Trailer's 4-Way to 7-Way to Wire up Electric Brakes
    Your current drums will work fine with a set of electric assemblies installed instead of the hydraulic ones you have now. We actually have a kit designed to upgrade a trailer's 4-way wiring to a 7-way. For that you'd want the part # ET7WK. From the brake output pin of the included junction box you'd run 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 (sold by the foot) to the brake assemblies. I attached an install video for the wiring kit as well as a picture on how trailer brakes are typically wired...

  • Wire Size Butt Connectors is Needed to Connect Wiring for Electric Trailer Brakes
    Electric brakes, like part # 23-26-27, use 16 gauge wiring. However, we generally recommend using 10 gauge, like part # 10-2-1, to connect to the brakes because of how far the wiring generally has to be run. So you need to use butt connectors large enough for the 10 gauge wire, like part # DW05745-5. They'll still be able to be crimped down onto the smaller 16 gauge as well, especially since they're heat shrink. Between the two grease seals, parts # 58846 and # RG06-050, we prefer...

  • Picking Out Brake Assemblies for Camper Trailer
    I can help you find the right assemblies, but I do not know exactly which ones you have on your trailer. To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # 23-468 is a 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch thick brake assembly. You also want to determine what the bolt pattern is of your assembly...

  • Troubleshooting Right Side Brake Magnet on Single Axle Utility Trailer
    Each brake magnet should have 2 leads, one to power, one to ground. Most of the time, folks just ground the magnet to the trailer frame, and use the trailer frame itself as the ground circuit. I'd recommend finding the point where the wiring makes a run to the right side, and test the supply wire for power after the junction. Even if the magnet is bad, you should still show power on the wire feeding the magnet. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to test brake magnets...

  • Correct Replacement for 10 Inch x 1-3/4 Inch Braking Assemblies
    The 10" x 1-1/2" braking assemblies part # K23-472-473-00 will use the same four bolt brake mounting flange as the 10" x 1-3/4" braking assemblies you have but the hub/drum that goes with these, part # 008-418-02 uses a LM67048 inner bearing and L44649 outer bearing which I don't believe is correct for your trailer. The most common replacement for the 10" x 1-3/4" braking assemblies you have are going to be the 10" x 2-1/4" braking assemblies, part # 23-26-27. The correct hub/drum for...

The typical hub and drum assembly that fits with these brakes is the Dexter 3,500 lb # 84546UC3-EZ.

  • Troubleshooting New Brakes That are Weak After Adjustment
    If you have adjusted your Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-26-27 properly and you are getting no braking power with your override manual while your trailer is connected to your tow vehicle then I would start off by checking your 7-Way connectors for any corrosion or debris. If those look good the next step would be to determine if the brake controller signal is actually getting to the trailer or not.

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Magnet Recommendation for Dexter 10 inch Assemblies
    Sounds like your brake magnets are getting worn as they are what grabs the drum to apply the brakes. This isn't uncommon as there's quite a bit of friction there. Basically the magnet gets activated and grabs onto the drum which then applies the brakes as they hub turns. For a replacement magnet you'd want the part # BP01-110 and you'd be set.

  • Can Electric Brakes be Used on a Boat Trailer
    People use electric brakes on boat trailers all the time actually. We used to tell people they had to unplug their trailer wiring before backing the trailer into the water (still not a terrible idea) but in reality people leave the wiring plugged in all the time and rarely have issues. I sat and watched people on a boat ramp once (always entertaining by the way) and didn't see a single person unplug their trailer wiring before backing in and it didn't seem to phase any of the trailers....

The Dexter version for the set is # 23-468-469. For manually adjusted brakes the etrailer set is # AKEBRK-35 and the Dexter set is # 23-26-27. One of...

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
    It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle. It is also not advised to use self-adjusting braking assemblies on one axle and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the other. The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns. If you have a 3,500 lb axle or multiple 3,500 lb axles on your trailer then you will need to use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake...

  • Dexter Electric Brake Assembly Compatibility with Lippert 3,500 lb Axle
    For your Lippert 3500 lb axle on your 2018 Stealth trailer, the Dexter electric brake assemblies will work.

  • Can 7 Inch Hubs/Drums Be Used with 13 Inch Diameter Wheels
    The recommended hub/drum size for a 13" diameter wheel is one that is for 10" diameter brakes. The wheel will still fit on the hub/drum assuming the bolt pattern matches there is just less surface area on the hub for the wheel. However, you are only 1" off of the recommended specification so you would more than likely be fine with either 7" or 10" braking assemblies but there would obviously be an increase in stopping power with the larger assembly. The brake mounting flange is the same...

  • What Wheel and Brake Sizes Work With Timbren Axle-Less System ASR3500S06
    It is possible the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06 will work with your wheels and brakes, but it depends on a couple of factors: the bolt pattern of your wheels and the size of your brake assemblies. The hub and drum that fit this system is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84656UC3-EZ, and let's talk about brakes first. This is a 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide drum which means those are the size of brakes it will work with,...

  • Will Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes Fit a Rockwell 3,500 Lb Axle
    Yes, the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-468-469 for self-adjusting or the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-26-27 for manual adjusting will fit a Rockwell 3,500 Lb Axle.

  • Why do Brake Pads on 3,500 lb Brakes Crack and Should They be Replaced
    Brake shoes and linings (the brake pads) will crack for a number of reasons, mostly due to wear, but also dependant on the quality of the material. For example, some brake pads, such as those on the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35 are cut to length, while others are simply snapped off at intervals. Pads which are cut to length are going to see less cracking and outright wear in the material. If you do see cracking, you definitely want to replace the shoe and lining, or replace...
