Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes 23-26-27 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Dexter 10" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly kit, with the left hand and right hand assemblies for 3,500 pound axles.Now, electric brakes are easy to install. They offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Basically they require only an electric brake controller, which we do sell separately on our website.There's no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary.Now, this kit will include everything shown here. It includes the 10 inch by two and a quarter inch driver's side and passenger side electric trailer brake assemblies and the mounting hardware to install them.The brake shoes on these assemblies are lined with automotive grade friction material. This friction material is fully bonded, it's not riveted to the shoes. Gives you a longer life more braking torque.Now, these assemblies are manual adjustment brakes.

The gear right down here is how you adjust them. They do require periodic manual adjustment and the way you adjust them . let me turn it over here. On the backing plate, there's two holes at the bottom that you'll put your screwdriver, or you brake adjustment tool through to adjust the brakes; and once usually those holes are open but what's nice on these assemblies, they include these rubber adjuster plugs that'll cover those holes. Helps keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off your brake shoes.If you notice the four studs.

It is designed to fit a four bolt brake mounting flange bolt pattern and we mentioned it comes with the mounting nuts to install it.These parts are made in the USA. The dimensions again on these, the size of the assemblies, is 10 inch by two and a quarter inch and what those measurements are, the 10 inch is the diameter that's measured brake shoe to brake shoe. So, if we go straight across, 10 inch. Two and a quarter is going to be the width of the pad on the brake shoe. So, if we put ruler on that, there's your two and quarter inch width.Now, each brake assembly has a weight capacity of 1,750 pounds, so when both of these are used on the same axle, it'll meet the 3,500 pound axle rating.

These do require the use of 10 inch drums.Now, the wheel size that these will accept is 13" diameter, 14" and 15" diameters.Now, these are electric brakes, so if you look at the back, you'll see two green wires coming out the back. They do need to be connected. One goes to a brake feed, one goes to a ground and they're both green wires, so either wire can be used for either function.And the last thing I do just want to show you is how you can determine which one's left hand, which one's right hand. Now, on a new assembly of course, there'll be a sticker but if the sticker wasn't there, the easiest way to tell what side they go on, look at the length of the pad on the brake shoe. This pad goes from here to here.

This one's all the way from here to here. This is longer, this is shorter. The shorter pad is your primary shoe. That'll always face the front of the trailer. So, that'll go this way, so that'll tell you that this is the left hand driver's side; and same way over here. This pad is here, this one's just here to here. Shorter, longer. That's your primary shoe, goes to the front. That's your passenger side, right hand passenger side. But that should do it for the review on the Dexter 10" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly kit, with the left hand and right hand assemblies for 3,500 pound axles.

Excellent service,product and fast shipping. Fit right out of the my old tin can trailer will Have a new lease on the road. 554424

- 23-26-27


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

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, 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

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

Just installed so time will tell. Made by Dexter, original equipment, couldn't go wrong with the price and free shipping. The brake assemblies arrived quite quickly. Am very satisfied with the product and the service. 564349

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

I haven't installed my brake kit's and the hubs yet, but they were very helpful and arrived super fast. I am very satisfied with the service. 493356

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?

  • 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Trailer Brakes to Replace Dexter Electric Brakes
  • The brakes you have now are 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes with a 4-bolt pattern. For a left and right replacement I recommend our house brand # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are also self-adjusting brakes so after the initial manual adjustment they will not have to be adjusted again. I have included a link to a video review of these brakes for you. 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...

  • Replacement Parts For A Dexter 3,500 Lbs Axle Part # 35545E-ST-EZ-89
  • According to the manufacturer, the Homestead Challenger Trailers are equipped from the factory with 3,500 lb axles with electric brakes. For these axles you will need the following: 2 Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-26-27 (Manual-Adjust) Or 2 Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA (Self-Adjusting) And 4 Bearing Kits for #84 Spindles part # BK2-100 I have attached a few articles for your consideration in addition to a review of the products I have recommended.

  • 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...

  • Brake Assemblies for Starcraft AR-One 18QB Travel Trailer with Lippert Components Axle
  • Thank you so much for providing your axle details. I spoke to my contact at Lippert and he confirmed that your 3500 lb Lippert spring axle will use standard 10" x 2.25" brake assemblies.So, the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit, # 23-26-27, will work with your Starcraft AR-One 18QB Travel Trailer. The mounting bolts, nuts & adjuster plugs are included with this kit, but you will also need 4 lock washers, # 5-8. A helpful tool to have on hand is the brake adjustment spoon, # W80630,...

  • Replacement Trailer Brakes and Hubs for 2007 Jayco Jayfeather 25z
  • The brake assemblies you have are the same as part # 23-26-27 which is a standard 3,500 lb axle setup. This means that we know the correct brake hubs you'd need are # 84546UC3-EZ that you referenced. This comes with new bearings and seals as well.

  • Electric Drum Brake Assemblies to Replace Hydraulic Brakes on 1993 Jayco Trailer
  • I have attached a very helpful article on adding electric drum brakes to a trailer for you to check out. To determine the correct electric brake assemblies that will fit your 1993 Jayco Trailer, you will need to know the weight capacity of the axle, the bolt pattern of the brake mounting flange, and the physical size of the brake assembly you are replacing. For example, the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-26-27 referenced in your question is for 3,500 pound axles, measures...

  • 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...
