Video Transcript for Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly Initial Setup Review

Today we're going to do a tech tip video on the initial adjustment of a Nev-R Adjust electric brake assembly. I have an example here of a Nev-R Adjust brake assembly and the way you can tell that is you can see the silver lever that's attached to the actuating arm. Then there's a cable that is attached to it that will go around the pulley right here, which will attach to this lever. If you see this lever right here, it engages the notches of this star wheel. Basically, the way this works is that when you hit your brakes, the brakes are applied, this magnet will attach to the inside of the hub drum, which will pull it this way, which will pull this actuating arm. When it does that, it will pull on this cable and that will pull this lever to tighten the star wheel up so it will adjust your brakes to that situation. Now, the question we have gotten a lot of time is the initial brake adjustment on a Nev-R Adjust brake assembly will be different than a regular brake assembly. The difference is on a regular brake assembly when you install this and then put your hub and drum on and then your tire and wheel, you would spin that tire and wheel around.

Then using a brake adjustment tool, you would go to the back where the adjustment holes are, put your adjustment tool in and tighten that star wheel until it tightens down and stops the wheel and tire from turning. Then you would just back it off a few turns and that would give you the adjustment on the regular brake system. On the Nev-R Adjust system, you don't really want to do it that way. What would happen is this lever that's connected right here to the star wheel will not allow that star wheel to back off. You won't be able to back off the star wheel with this lever attached. What you'll need to do when you do an initial adjustment of the Nev-R Adjust brake assemblies, install it the same way, put your hub and drum on your wheel and tire.

You will turn your wheel and tire around until you get a slight drag of the brake shoes onto the hub. When you get a slight drag, then it is adjusted correctly. You will not want to tighten it down until it locks upbecause then what will happen is you won't be able to back off that star wheel. Now, if there's a case of where you've already done that and you're wondering why I cannot turn that star wheel to back it off the brake shoes, what youll need to do is get a small screwdriver like this and then go to the adjustment hole. These adjustment holes like where youd do your brake adjustment at, and take this small screwdriver, stick it through the adjustment hole where the lever is and then just push down on that lever and hold that lever away from the star wheel and that will allow that star wheel to go forward or backwards. Once you get your screwdriver in there, push down on this lever, hold it down, use your brake adjustment tool and go ahead and stick it in that adjustment hole, then youll be able to loosen up the star wheel.

Thats a way to, if you went ahead and already tried to adjust this and tightened it too much. That is the best way to back off that star wheel on the Nev-R Adjust electric brake assemblies.I hope that will help you. That will do it for the tech tip on the initial adjustment of the Nev-R Adjust electric brake assembly. .

I bought these brakes to replace the hydraulic brakes on my newly purchased (at DOD auction) M1102 trailer. The OEM eq was almost new (2010 model) but I wanted to remove the hydraulic surge brakes for electric. They are a perfect fit and easy to install. Would have been nice to have the dust covers for the back of the housing. 166193

Replaced old non-self-adjusting trailer brake assemblies with new self-adjusting ones. See photos of old & new. TIP: Temporarily tape new wires out of the way to avoid pinching them between the axle flange and backing plate when mounting the new brake assemblies (ask me how I know). 211142

These are well built, easy to install brake assemblies. I had to adjust them after installation as they would not self adjust as the video states. They will be great if they do auto adjust as they wear. Price was great and they arrived in three days after my order. I will buy all my trailer parts from etrailer in the future. 111653

Best brakes ever owned, they operate better than the orig. brakes and seem to stay adjusted very well. I never have to adjust and easy to install.

These went on very easy, and worked great right out of the box. It was nice to have them all match. I spliced them in a couple days before going on a 1,000+ mile vacation to Arizona. They've worked flawlessly (I check them to make sure they aren't hung up). This was just one headache eliminated for the trip by just getting new brakes instead of messing around with junky old ones. We've had the toyhauler out on several other trips also. I will purchase again if I need any for another trailer. 340587


Comments

The brakes have been working great. After the initial installment and adjustment, I havent had to do any additional work to any of them. They are performing great, really better than I expected. I always test them with my brake controller when I first get back on the road and they have always worked. I have recd a few of my friends to buy any parts they need from your website as it was easy and had lots of options trailer stores around here are pretty limited.

Perfect replacement for my 24ft Hallmark trailer. Very easy to install, just bolt on and connect the wires. With the automatic adjustment there is nothing else to do! I recommend putting some extra anti-seize to be on the safe side (I had similar brakes seize up after a big winter in the North East). Also you will need 2 plugs per assembly to cover the adjustment holes (the brakes don't come with any plug and have 2 holes!) 139198

They work great right out of the box, i tested each one to make sure that the magnet was working before completing assembly. it was a all-day job, but well worth it.

I bought a trailer that had been home-fabricated using the axles from an old horse trailer. The axles had the remnants of electric trailer brakes, but the guts were missing. I was preparing to move from Pennsylvania to Montana, and intended to tow the trailer with a boat and some loose ends, and I wanted to have the security of brakes. Although I had never attempted to do an installation of this type, there were some helpful youtube videos to guide me. The installation went well, albeit slowly, mostly due to my inexperience, and the brakes proved to work well. The drive west was smooth, and the trailer has proved to be very useful out here. As far as I can tell, everything continues to work perfectly. 272996

Ordered 4 of the Nev-R-Adjust brake assemblies to replace my squeaking brakes on my 31 foot 5th wheel. I ordered them on normal shipping which was 7 to 9 days. After order was shipped I recieved an e-mail that my shipping had been upgraded and I should recieve the brake assemblies in 3-5 days. I ordered on a Wed AM and received them on my door step Friday PM. The brakes were easy to install and by viewing the dexter brake install information the setup was easy. Just returned from the 1st trip and brakes worked well and with no sqeaking. Brakes were the best price on saw on the internet. Great job etrailer and dexter. 44691

Dexter makes a nice brake assembly and etrailer does a great job of getting it to you fast at a great price! Simple to install and an easy replacement. Have bought lots of parts from etrailer and they are always great products and their staff is very well informed! I'm not an easy customer to make happy and I've always been satisfied with etrailer. Even if I could find something cheaper elsewhere I'd probably buy from etrailer. Great business model and great service. Don't change a thing and I'll be a customer for a very long time. 223254

The brakes fit perfectly. Have not tried them yet, but they appear to be of good quality. I really want to comment on how great the service has been through the ordering process. The parts arrived even quicker than I had been told they would. When I called for technical assistance while installing them (for torque numbers), I was immediately connected to someone who could answer my questions. This is the second time I have ordered from them, and will not hesitate to do so again. 54549

The electric trailer brakes arrive within three days of ordering. The parts were a perfect fit. Etrailer' support is second to none! Helpful videos and live support available. The four trailer brakes were $100.00 less expensive than the nearest competitor and free shipping too! 418931

Item: 23-458: This item Is a replacement for my 5th wheel camper. Do to the fact while traveling the brake did not release and failed on interstate I-40 late in the evening.The heat caused all the parts on the spindle to fail. The cost of replacing brakes, drum, bearing, seals, grease, plus service cost is Very Expensive after hours. Having these items on hand can save a lot of time and money. Etrailer parts are top quality and best online price. Thanks 321760

Shipped as advertised but had some damage. However I was able to reposition one of the brake shoes with some effort. Installation was smooth...be sure to watch the video as no instructions come with the brakes. Also the dust covers are not included so save your old ones. I tested the installed brakes statically and they work. My RV will be taken on a trip soon. so a road test will be reviewed then. I have done business with etrailer before and all was well. 309552

I needed to replace one of my trailers Dexter never adjust brake assemblies. I stayed with the Dexter OEM part and my replacement job was easy. Great product and love never adjusting trailer brakes. etrailer had the best price and really fast shipping. I received emails from their customer support team through the order placement & shipping process and even a delivery notice. Outstanding job and I will be a repeat customer. Thank you. 518994

I just received my parts today, opened boxes and I am pleased with the quality and price! I am totally happy with the process from the time of placing the order to the time of delivery!! 3 DAYS!!! I don't think I will purchase anything from any one else. I would recommend E Trailer to all my friends! The product was everything I expected,I can't wait for the weather to break so I can get them installed. Thanks again for everything, Brian 170652

Wanted to wait until after our most recent trip with our trailer before giving you the one year follow-up. Just pulled the trailer almost 1000 miles in the Rocky Mountains. The Nev-R-Adjust brakes & drums worked great and I felt very confident in their performance. I really appreciate not having to crawl under the trailer to adjust the brakes. All are good products and I would recommend them to all. 382045

I ordered a set of four for my tandem axle trailer on a Friday and they arrived on Wednesday. They were Incredibly easy to install! The bolts lined up perfectly, and from start to finish took about two hours, that included repacking the bearings. Best pat is the, MADE IN USA label I am very very pleased so far. I cant wait to try them out and see if the automatic adjustment works. Thanks etrailer!! 41606

Happy with product, but make sure when you receive your order everything is accounted for. I bought complete brake assembly, drums bearings etc... started putting everything together one wheel at a time and realized 1 bearing was left out so we are delayed another 5 days. I thought the bearing was being shipped faster but I guess not. I would have paid the additional cost if I would have known. 422538

Product is as advertised. Very easy to install and price was great. I started to do a simple brake job on my 5th wheel trailer, but was able to upgrade to self adjusting brakes while avoiding all the hassles of purchasing the magnets, cleaning and assembling all the parts, plus having to manually adjust the brakes in installation and then again as the lining wears. 177081

I always get great service and product from etrailer.com, but this time the brake assemblies where very loosely packed in one HEAVY box and where scratched, springs dislodged and a wire broken close to the magnet. I was able to fix the wire and reassemble the brakes with a little TLC. Thanks for great prices and free shipping (please take care in packing dept). 213939

The brake back plates mounted as they should if properly made and they look like they are quality made. I don't know if I need the two plugs to keep dust out or not. I put the ones from the old brakes in and will buy four more. Sorry no pictures as I got caught up in putting them on. But I would buy from etrailer again as I think they are a good company. 149086

Nuts and bolts are nuts and bolts but I can report that the self-adjusting brakes have worked well on our two-thousand mile trip this summer through the mountains of Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. They stop straight and true and don't seem to fade on those long down grades like the infamous "Cabbage Hill" near Pendelton Or. 306923

Got 2 RH & 2 LH Dexter brake assemblies for my 04 Jayco. It was an easy job to swap out the old assemblies for the new. The old ones were not really bad but at 11 years old I felt it was time to change. Shipping was very fast. One adjuster was out of place but it was quickly fixed using my old drum brake tools. 190940

Great product and easy to install. I wish I had bought these before I had an RV repair shop replace my brake shoes. It was a nightmare, brakes were never adjusted correctly, magnets squealed, and poor braking. I installed these myself, and have had great (and quiet) braking since. Highly recommended. 176036

I've had to return this and get a replacement. It is an OEM product on my trailer so I know it is a perfect fit. I can't say enough good things about the service I've received from e-trailer when I had to return this to get a replacement. I will definitely make purchases again through e-trailer. 204550

The workmanship and quality of these are second to none. After the original brakes wore out I bought the whole backing plate assembly rather than just replacing the Chinese shoes. These are MADE IN THE USA ! It was faster and easier to replace the whole set and have all the parts new. 216600

These are built very well! Very easy to change, 4 bolts and 2 wires. I did not pre adjust the breaks, it took a few trips for the breaks to adjust to the right adjustment. If I did it again I would pre adjust the breaks and not let the self adjusting do it. Overall a very good product!! 294994

Perfect replacement size, style, fit, and function. I used heat shrink crimps to make the connections and it went perfectly. This was a much easier job than I expected. When you break these in, you will have to adjust the electric brakes a time or two, but no biggie. 387445

The price was great and the product was easy to install. It loses it's adjustment easily after one trip and i have to manually adjust them more often then i believe they need be. When winter breaks i will take them apart and see what can be done to solve this problem. 339494

These Dexter brakes are ALMOST complete. So why didn't they include the rubber plugs for the adjuster holes? Otherwise they seem to be well made and installed without a hitch. Can't wait to see if they really do self adjust like car brakes have for eons. 231581

  • How Thick Are Electric Brake Shoe Pads and When Should They be Replaced
  • On Dexter 12" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly # 23-458 the shoe pad thickness is 3/16 of an inch. Dexter says that you should replace the shoes if the material gets down to 1/16 of an inch thick or less.

  • What Is The Difference Between the 6K and 7K Dexter Axle Electric Brake Assemblies
  • You are correct, the difference between the Electric Brake Assembly for 6K Axles, part # 23-458 / 23-459 and the Electric Brake Assembly for 7K axles, part # 23-180 / # 23-181, is that the 7K brake assembly has a stronger magnet, and also has a different compound on the brake shoes than the 6K electric brake assemblies for more stopping power. Both the 6k and 7K brake assemblies, fit the same axle. Yes, the 7K backing plates on part # 23-180 / 23-181, will fit on 6K pound axles.

  • Dexter Brake Assembly Recommendations to Replace Part Number 023-357-00
  • The Dexter part number 023-357-00 is a 12x2 electric brake assembly. The correct RH assembly to use to replace what you have would be the part # 23-459 and for the LH assembly you would want the part # 23-458 if you have 6K axles. If you have 7k axles you would want part # 23-464 for the LH side and part # 23-465 for the RH side.

  • Replacement Electric Drum Trailer Brakes for a 10,000 Pound Pro Line Trailer
  • Since you have Dexter brakes now, you can stick with Dexter and go with some self adjusting, # 23-458 (left hand side) and # 23-459 (right hand side). You can also use the etrailer.com, self adjusting brakes # AKEBRK-7L-SA (left hand side) and # AKEBRK-7R-SA, (right hand side). Both of these brake assemblies listed above mount with the 5 bolt pattern.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for a Dexter D52 Axle
  • Your Dexter D52 axles should be rated at 5,200 lbs and use 12 inch brake assemblies. Going with a 6k rated brake assembly would be your best choice since they do not offer a 12 inch brake assembly with a 5,200 lb capacity. For that I would recommend the # 23-459 for the right hand side and the # 23-458 for the left hand side.

  • Will Water Damage Magnets if Electric Brakes are Installed on Boat Trailer
  • Electric brakes, like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-458 that you referenced, are actually becoming more and more common on boat trailers. They used to not be so common because water and electricity don't play nice together, but if you unplug the trailer before backing it into the water you will be just fine. Any trailer components that are submerged under water will wear quicker than parts that are not, but if you make sure to hose down your boat trailer...

  • How to Manually Adjust Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brake Assemblies
  • If you have a safe area where you can pull the trailer and apply the brakes several times until they're adjusted it's not absolutely necessary to pre-adjust them. However, pre-adjusting them is the safest alternative, which is why we recommend doing it that way. When you adjust Nev-R-Adjust brakes, you'll need to poke a small screwdriver through the hole in the backing plate and pull the metal tab that's just behind the adjuster towards you. As you're holding the tab away from the adjuster,...

  • Will the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assembly # 23-458 Replace the Dexter Brake Assembly # 023-466-00
  • The Dexter Brake Assembly, # 023-466-00, that you currently have is basically the same brake assembly as the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assembly, # 23-458. They are both 12 x 2 Nev-R-Adjust electric brake assemblies for 6,000-lb axles. If you would like a right hand assembly as well, you can use part # 23-459. The only difference between these two brake assemblies is that the Dexter Brake Assembly, # 23-458, has not been certified by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

If you go with the hub/drum, you'll also need a brake assembly. I recommend going with a Nev-R-Adjust assembly, like # 23-459 for the right side and...

  • Adding Electric Drum Brakes to a Scamp Camper Trailer
  • Setting up a trailer with electric drum brakes is going to be the easier and most cost effective way of adding brakes to your Scamp trailer. Since the trailer already has the mounting flanges that will limit the amount of parts and work that will need to be done. Starting with the hub and drum assemblies since your bearings are both L44649 and you have an EZ Lube style axle you would need # 8-257-5UC3-EZ with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. They are designed for 2,000 pound axles but will...
