It took me a while to get them right, but now they're working well. You have to put the hub on and off, adjusting the shoes, until the shoes are out as far as possible, centering the shoes, by operating the brakes between trys. After that they will adjust themselves, but if they are not adjusted close, they won't. The installation and wiring is child's play, just make sure the shoes barely scrape the drums. After that they've stayed adjusted up well. I took a 3000mi. trip and they performed well.


Comments
Definitely 5 stars. They took a little tinkering to get adjusted to the point where they would adjust themselves, but that 2 years ago, and Im very happy. My 37ft.5th wheel stops so much better. Id do this again in a heartbeat.

Quick and easy to install, and units work great. A few bolts and splice up the wires, thats really all there is to it. Ideal to replace these when you are doing your bearing maintenance. These were used to replace brakes that had been damaged by Grease intrusion from leaking bearing seals, stopping power is a night and day difference.

As usual with etrailer I ordered a much cheaper brake kit but that one was out of stock and back ordered. It’s frustrating cuz this seems to happen a lot with etrailer. The Dexter brake kits were top quality, bolted on easily and work great. They are made in USA which all of us should be more concerned with. The first product I selected was a chinese made product but the price was right. I am very pleased with the product it’s self, however coming out of pocket with almost $200 more for the the Dexter brakes was an unexpected cost. etrailer needs to stop selling products they do not have in stock!!

Very nice brake set up. Delivered as stated. Installation was a snap. Pre lubed hubs are the way to go. Just slide them on and set the tension. One dust cap was dented in shipping or packaging? But did not defray from the product quality.

These brakes were perfect replacements for the originals on my trailer. They are complete units and install pretty easily, although you have to make sure the brake shoes are centered on the plates and the Nev-R-Adjust cables are routed where they are supposed to be. Mine were knocked out of place during shipping, but it wasn't difficult to correct. I don't have many miles on them yet, so can't comment on durability, or how well the self adjustment feature works.

I recently completed a brake upgrade on my trailer. The new Never Adjust Dexter Brakes went on flawlessly. I found the process to be straight forward. The self-adjusting feature was an upgrade from the previous brakes but bolted on with no issues. I like the idea of not needing to adjust brakes as the pads wear down. I needed all new brakes, this seemed like the best decision for replacements.

The whole experience of ordering my replacement brake assemblies was awesome. Teresa did a fantastic job of figuring out which parts I needed. I would not hesitate to order parts from e-trailer in the future. The quality and fit-up of the Dexter brake assemblies made repairing my rv easier than I could have imagined. I am one happy camper. Thank you for an awesome consumer experience from start to finish.

i have only used the new brakes for 1000 miles or so, but they have worked as expected. delivery was prompt. i would definitely buy from etrailer again. when installed, i was chasing a brake issue which my in the cab brake controller identified as an intermittant short circuit. i could have diagnosed the cause to a specific wheel, but decided to replace all four wheel brake assemblies since the existing units were original, about 12 yrs old, but in good condition. doing so did not fix the problem, but eliminated the brake assemblies as a possible cause. the cause of the fault was in one of the two cross axle wire cables. i replaced all of the trailer brake wiring starting ahead of the forward axle, and that solved the issue although i was not able to find the exact location of the short. while replacing the cable, i re-routed the wiring so that none went through an axle tube and the length of the cable to each wheel brake was equal to the others. keeping the runs equal in lenght insured equal power to each wheel with the hope that all four wheels would brake evenly.


Comments
after about another 1000 miles and one year, im pleased to report the new brake assemblies from etrailer as well as the rewire of the trailers brake system are performing well.

Nice job "e-Trailer"; received this "heavy" order very promptly; did not expect it so quickly in view of how other retailers/ manufacturers/ on-line businesses are behind in fulfilling orders. Packages (3) came all intact, well packed and product received in great condition. The order included: > 5-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Hook End for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles (2) > U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 8,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles - 8" Long U-Bolts (2) > Tandem-Axle Trailer Equalizer Kit for 2" Slipper Springs - 10-1/8" Long Equalizers (2) > Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 6K (2) > Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Brake Assemblies (2) > Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 2441SS - Stainless Steel (Pair) (2) > Bearing Kit, 15123/25580 Bearings, GS-2125DL Seal (4) > Optronics LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights - Submersible - 40 Diodes - Driver and Passenger Side. These items are being utilized in the total suspension replacement of a 10,000 gvwr tandem axle trailer. Good sized job for a DIY'er. I expect that it will give my JD 2038 tractor a smooth and safe ride as it is towed/ hauled down the highway. Thank you. I would/will strongly recommend to a friend/relative or associate. ( I'd take a picture of the "project", but there is a vicious rain storm occurring outside; perhaps one or two pics to follow at a later time).

Replaced all four brake plate assy's, hubs and bearings on my AS from etrailer last year. The buying and shipping experience from etrailer was very good. I have 5000 miles on them with no problems and plan another 5000 mile trip this spring. Will be inspecting each wheel before departing and will update my review at a later date. So far I'm very pleased with etrailer's service and products. Lynn

Worth buying made in America. I had no installation issues while installing the never adjust break. I have been one to be careful to watch and adjust my breaks, but were they adjust correctly at all time. Absolutely not. I am Happy to be upgrading my 5th wheel with these Dexter Never adjust breaks. What surprised me was that they were pre adjusted to very close to where they needed to be. They still need to break in on the drums and adjust themselves, but they work very well right out of the box. I am one happy buyer.

This brake set is so superior to the factory setup. I have a 37RW Winnebago with tag axle and electric brakes. The factory axle brakes were not self adjusting and were riveted shoes. The self adjusting bonded shoes will exceed the performance of the stock ones and should last a lot longer. I debated for days over the 100-200-& 300 dollar set and was happy to say the xx.xx dollar set is a good choice since the factory set was probably 69.00!!! Thanks Again etrailer!!!

Installed 4 of the Nev-r Adjust 3500 lb brake plates on a camper. Initially, these new brakes did not have the braking power of the brakes I removed but after about 500 miles of driving they were doing better. They performed more consistently than the older units I removed but those were much older and mixed brand parts. Unfortunately, I can't give a longer experience because we ended up trading out to a newer unit shortly after 500-700 miles of tows.

  • Which Electric Drum Brakes for Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axle 410980-02 Hub 8-388
    I sent this to Dexter and this is what they sent back: I checked the number and it not a good hub number, and wheel tried pulls up 3,500 sprung axle from 2006 that doesn’t use a Nev-R-Lube hub.

  • Replacement Trailer Brakes, Bearings, and Seals for Dexter 6K Trailer Axles
    We do have brakes for the 6,000 pound Dexter axle on your 2013 Open Range Roamer. That size takes 12" x 2" brakes. For a set of self-adjusting brakes in this size I recommend # AKEBRK-7-SA.

    The correct electric trailer brake kit for a 2013 Jayco Jay Flight 28BHBE is the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-458-459. That said, I understand this may be confusing because the axle tag says you have a 4,400 lb axle and the above brakes are for a 6,000 lb axle but this particular axle actually uses the larger brakes so no need to get hung up on this.

  • Are Initial Adjustments Necessary for Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brake Assemblies
    Technically speaking, it's not really necessary to pre-adjust Nev-R-Adjust brakes. You'd find a big empty parking lot, set your brake controller gain to 50 percent or so and speed up to 25. Then hit the manual brake switch on your brake controller without using the tow vehicle brakes. These should be hard stops. Once you do this a few time, you'll feel the brakes becoming more and more effective. Once you've done this 6 or 8 times and the braking intensity doesn't seem to change, then you...

    To get your brake assemblies to start self-adjusting after the initial manual adjustment at install, you will need to hit the brakes hard multiple times. I recommend having the truck and trailer on a fairly smooth and level surface in a parking lot for this adjustment. You will slowly accelerate to no more than 20 mph, then hit the manual override on your brake controller to its max. It will be jarring, so be prepared. You will need to do this a few times.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes on One Side that Apply Harder than the Other
    The issue seems to be different adjustment than the other side. Most likely the time delayed onset of the braking pressure is locking up the one side of the trailer before the other due to it being a tighter adjustment. What you can do is tow the trailer around at a slower speed and apply the trailer brakes with your override lever several times and witch each application they will tighten by one click until they are equally tightened between both sides.

I assume you have electric brakes on just one of the axles as having that highly rated brakes on both of your axles (considering their capacity) would give you a very aggressive, abrupt stop.
