received in good shape and fast shipping folks at etrailer great to deal with THANKS! 449988



- 23-458-459
by:

My purchase was one of the smartest I have made. Your brakes work better than expected and when my friends use my equipment trailer they often make comments about the good brakes. 586426



- 23-458-459
by:

Arrived in 3 days, Installation was easy, Now I have the brakes that I always thought I should have. 427916

Received my order of four Dexter brakes, disappointed they were removed from original manufactures box and lumped into a larger box with paper stuffing. Plates were scuffed up in shipping needing touch up paint. Brake components seemed ok. other than that etrailer is my go to vendor. 418420



- 23-458-459
by:

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. 601149

Everything went together easily. Easy install. Only issue was the easy grease hub covers could have been a little heavier duty. Metal was a little thin and bends/warps out of shape easily. Very good customer service while ordering and quick delivery. 576505

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. 539350

Worked great after my brother & i had to install 2 new ground wires from the left side to the right side. all is well. 456499

by:

etrailer must have read the reviews from previous orders of customers. I was unsure of placing an order from reading reviews about shipping nightmares. My order showed up on time and without any shipper induced damage. I was also pleasantly surprised that it was [ MADE IN USA ]. The packaging was sturdy and heavy enough to protect the product from [I JUST DONT CARE] shipping handlers. Thanks to Noah, I received the correct assemblies for my trailer. The previous owner of the trailer installed incorrect brake assemblies that I discovered on bearing inspection and lube. Thanks again Noah !! I have trust in future orders 459022

Fits like a glove. Although I'm parked for a few months I won't get a chance to activate the self adjusting feature. Will update the review then. 669116



- 23-458-459
by:

Quality product. Easy and straight forward installation process. Many helpful instructional videos online. 668195



- 23-458-459
by:

The quality is excellent. Installation was simple and straightforward. The instructions should include something on the initial and proper settings of the star adjuster, to include whether the brakes pads are pushed out during forward or reverse braking. There is only information on how to seat the brakes to the drums. Nothing for the novice on star adjustment. 658697


Comments

Its recommended that the adjuster be tightened enough that the wheel cannot be turned by hand, then backed off by 10 clicks, until theres just a slight bit of drag. If you click the video link I provided, and fast forward to the 4:25 mark, you can see how to do the initial adjustment.

Better than original equipment. Easy to install. Used on super heavy duty utility dump trailer. Still working great after a year. 647798

Brakes performed perfectly on our trip to Alaska. They were exact same brakes that came on our fifth wheel RV and a great price. 643377



- 23-458-459
by:

They fit well and the shipping was fast 642488



- 23-458-459
by:

Brakes were of very good quality, had no issues putting them on. Only two things I could see to change is 1. If your going to send nuts mise well send new bolts. 2. One of my brake adjusters had fallen off in shopping so had to assemble before putting on. Again no biggie might have been a shipping problem. Al in all would buy again 638836



- 23-458-459

Best brakes I've ever bought stops perfect ever time and never need to adjust , never buy regular brakes again. 638056

Brakes were packaged good and came in good condition. Can’t wait to have time to install to take camper out for the season. Hoping the install is going to go easy and fast being I got the complete brake package and new hub drum assemblies from Etrailer because of their prices, the availability of products and OE replacement parts they offer. 634829

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. 634446

Very easy to put on and a perfect fit. Awesome shipping. Natalie was awesome at getting all the correct information and the right product. 628891



- 23-458-459
by:

Excellent product. Original Dexter replacement assembly. Each brake assembly was individually sealed in plastic, packed in a thick cardboard box. My four boxed brake assemblies were then shipped in a larger single carton. Well done! The only minor criticism I can make is there was an overabundance of lubricant (grease) applied to backing plate wear surfaces. I will need to remove the excess grease during installation to avoid having the grease migrate to the brake pads during operation. 617895

Product arrived as promised and everything ordered arrived. I am replacing the brake assemblies and bearings on my 2016 Jayco Eagle. Bearings are inexpensive and If the wheel assembly is disassembled it makes sense to replace all expendable parts when it is apart. I bought the trailer new and it never had positive brakes. I would have taken it back on a warranty claim but there is no Jayco dealer nearby and if there was it would be months before they would do the work. We are full timers and cannot have our trailer tied up in a shop that long. Turns out the grease seal failed or the bearings were grease by an pneumatic grease gun. I just started the first wheel but I suspect that they are all covered in grease. So I ordered 4 sets of brake assemblies. 584799

I have been buying various products from etrailer.com for many years, and they always go out of their way to make the process as pleasant and simple as possible. I ordered the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit late Thursday afternoon, and it was delivered to me by noon the following Monday. Prices at etrailer.com are always good, and free shipping on orders over $99 makes them even better. I also appreciate all the help etrailer provides with their how-to videos. I'll be buying all my future trailer parts from them. 582264

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Difference Between Dexter and etrailer.com Brand 12 inch Brake Assemblies
  • Dexter brake assemblies like the part # 23-458-459 are essentially the best ones on the market. They use the best materials and and incredibly reliable and well-made. That being said the etrailer.com brand assemblies part # AKEBRK-7-SA are also very well made too. We have sold a ton of these and gotten very positive feedback on how well they well they work and how reliable they are. If it was my money I would go with these unless you want to have the absolute nicest materials money...

  • What is the Difference Between the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit 6K and 7K
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-464-465 rated for 7,000 lb axles will work with your Dexter 6,000 lb axles but the braking aggression would not be ideal and I do recommend sticking with the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-458-459 rated for 6,000 lb axles. In regards to replacing the braking assemblies, there are two components that tend to wear out faster than the others on drum brakes and that is the shoes and magnets. The magnets...

  • Electric Brake Assemblies For Dexter 6000 lb Axles With 12x2 Inch Drums
  • The brakes you are looking for are a standard size, so rather than getting the shoes and magnets for your older design, I recommend upgrading your system. I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA. These are really well made assemblies. The brake pad material is actually cut instead of scored and broken like other assemblies, so you get a better quality pad. If you want the current Dexter assembly...

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for 12" x 2" Drums
  • To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your trailer, you need to know your axle's weight capacity, your brake's mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your hub, which you mentioned was 12" x 2" drum. If your axle was rated for 7,000 lbs and you had a 5-bolt mounting flange you could use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" # 23-464-465. For a 6,000 lb axle and 5-bolt mounting flange you can use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric...

  • Would Dexter 5,200 lb Trailer Axle have Manual Or Self Adjusting Brake Assemblies
  • Dexter makes 5,200 lb trailer brake assemblies that are self adjusting like part # 23-458-459 as well as ones that are manual adjust like part # 23-105-106 so it could go either way. I attached a picture that points out what to look for on your assemblies once you pull off the hub to tell if they are self adjust or manual adjust. The steel cable you see is part of the linkage mechanism which makes the assemblies adjust automatically.

  • Are Certain 12 Inch Brake Assemblies Interchangeable?

Please note that brake assemblies should only be chosen in part by the weight capacity of your axle. They also need to fit with your correct hub size, mounting flange bolt pattern and wheel size.

  • How to Pick Out Brakes for 3,500 lb Boat Trailer with Tandem Axles
  • Installing brakes on a trailer really isn't too bad. The install is pretty basic and a DIYer like yourself wouldn't have a problem at all. To determine the parts you need though we need to for sure know what axles/spindles you have so that we pick out the right parts. I attached a couple guides for that down below for you to check out. There are a lot of boat trailers that have great results with electric drum brakes so if that's a route you are interested in that's what I would recommend...

The bearing kit for the 6k Dexter axles will be either # BK3-100 or # BK3-110. There are a couple of differences between these two sets. Set # BK3-100 includes a cotter pin and a 10-36 seal which has an inner diameter of 2.250 inches and outer diameter of 3.376 inches. Set # BK3-110 includes...

  • 1997 Apenlite Fifth Wheel Brake Brake Assembly Recommendation Dexter 8-217
  • Thanks for the picture of your hub. From looking at it I noticed 217 on the drum which means it's this hub part # 8-219-18UC3. So for brake assemblies you'd want the # 23-458-459 which is a pair of left and right assemblies that match that hub which are self adjusting.

To order a similar setup with self-adjusting brakes is possible but you will need to piece the kit together as we don't have it all as one part number.

  • 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. Then you can do the same...

  • Recommended Axle Upgrade from Dexter 4,400 lb to 5,200 lb Capacity on Forest River XLR Hyper Lite TT
  • For your 2014 Forest River XLR Hyper Lite TT Toy Hauler, they used Dexter axles with spring center measurement of 68.5 inches and hub face to hub face measurement of 83.5 inches according to my contact at Forest River. When you upgrade the axle capacity, those numbers change too much, so I have another alternative to get you the capacity you are seeking. My recommendation is to use the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension - Spindle Only - Regular Tires - 5200 lbs # ASR5200S01 which will replace...

  • Brakes For 10,000lb Dump Trailer 5200lb Double Axles With 12x2 Inch Drum Brakes
  • Yes, since the brake kit is rated up to 6000 per axle and has a 12 x 2 Inch drum you should have no issues applying Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-458-459. This kit fits wheel sizes 14-1/2", 15", and 16". The (extra) steel cable you see is part of the linkage mechanism which makes the assemblies adjust automatically. Can you provide me with your inner and outer bearing numbers I will recommend a flat washer that fits?

  • Using Dexter 7K Electric Brake Assemblies on 6K Trailer Axle
  • The 7K Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes, which comes in a set with both the Left Hand and Right Hand assemblies included as part # 23-464-465, can certainly be installed on your 6K axle assuming its 5 bolt pattern matches your existing flanges. In terms of size and bolt pattern these are indeed interchangeable with the Dexter 6K # 23-458-459. You are correct that the difference between the two sets just comes in their braking strength since they are meant to stop different...

  • Ford Integrated Trailer Brake Controller Compatibility with Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies
  • The Ford TBC will work just fine with the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies. The Ford TBC really only has issues with Electric Over Hydraulic brake actuators, so we do recommend an aftermarket controller in those instances and an aftermarket controller would then require the TBC to be disconnected. I've attached an article to assist. For electric brakes, the self-adjusting assemblies have absolutely no bearing on the factory Ford systems. If your trailer has 10 inch brakes, then...

  • Can Dexter Nev-R-Adjust be Used to Replace Warner Trailer Brakes
  • Your pictures didn't come through but I am attaching a picture with the distance between each of the mounting holes on the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-458-459 assemblies. If the mounting flange bolt dimensions match up with these mounting holes then yes, you can definitely use them on your trailer.

  • How to Initially Adjust Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes
  • You can initially adjust your Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brakes # 23-458-459 but the adjustment tool you are using might just be too thick to get to the adjustment wheel. You should use something that allows you to more easily access that wheel (as shown in picture) such as a flathead screwdriver. If you go to the linked video and forward to about the 14:15 mark you can see a flathead screwdriver being used to make an initial adjustment.

  • Replacement Trailer Axle to Replace Trailer with Older Style Brakes that Are Outdated
  • I wish we could help, but only option we can point you towards would be new axles as what you sent in a picture of is not compatible with anything we sell. You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one as we don't have access to what your numbers reference. You will need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have on your current hubs. I attached a help...

  • Is Lippert and Dexter 5-Bolt Trailer Brake Assembly Bolt Pattern Same
  • Yes, the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465 that you referenced fits the same 5 bolt mounting flange found on Lippert and Dexter 6k trailer axles. This kit is for 7k axles though so you'd want the 6k kit part # 23-458-459 which also fits and is same dimensions. The difference between these two kit is the magnet sensitivity. While it might seem tempting to install brakes with a higher weight capacity it actually will make setting the brake controller up more...
