Diana was very helpful when ordering these brakes. The prices are good and everything arrived at the promised time in good condition. The brakes are an exact replacement of the original and everything went together well. One of the easiest brake jobs I’ve ever done. I recommend etrailer and will buy from them again. 474694

After one year the brakes are working as expected. I really like the way they self adjust.

When the castle nut backed out a little on the left rear tire on my trailer my wheel bearing and tire were destroyed. I decided to replace all the brakes and the one wheel bearing since the rest were fine. I ordered the Dexter nev-r-adjust kit. It arrived 2 days later and I installed them today. I also ordered all new nuts and bolts and lug nuts. Easy peasy. 414953



- 23-464-465
by:

Although I have yet to install them, the products look good and I am pleased with everything so far except at the initiation of the order. After I placed the order online I never received a confirmation or tracking number. I called etrailer two days later and the order hadn't been processed. Everything was in stock so the order was then processed but did not ship until a day later. Processing and more timely shipping would be very much appreciated in the future. Thank you. 396181

Very easy to swap these new assemblies onto the trailer. Remove the five nuts, pull-off old assembly assembly and you're ready to install new brakes. Not having to pull the individual components off as is done on a car makes this a snap. Looking forward to see how well self-adjustment feature really works. 439559



- 23-464-465
by:

These brakes are supposed to self adjust like the name says, but since I’ve had them (about 1 year now) I’ve crawled under my trailer 5 times to adjust them. Good news is they only need to be adjusted when they’re out of adjustment. Usually I find out that they’re out of whack when I’m on a 7% grade towing a 10,000 lb load and someone cuts me off. The brakes get some pressure and swing the tounge causing my truck to steer. You can set the brake power output on flat ground testing if they lock etc. but won’t really know they’re out of adjustment until it’s time to stop. Bottom line they don’t adjust the way they’re supposed to. 559722


Comments

It may sound like an extremely simplistic solution, but youll want to make sure you have the correct brake assembly on the correct side of the trailer. The silver semi-circular lever that the magnet is attached to should be on the side of the brake assembly closest to the front of the trailer. In this instance, # 23-464 should be installed on the left, or drivers side of the trailer, and # 23-465 should be on the right, or passenger side. If they are reversed, it would indeed prevent the trailer brakes from staying in adjustment, and would actually back off the brake shoes over time, which sounds exactly like what you have going on.

etrailer folks were diligent in getting my order out ASAP when they got the shipment from the manufacturer. The quick response will provide for a safer trip to a horse venue some 4.5 hours away. The brake assemblies would be better with longer (maybe 18") actuator wires to make the electrical hook-up location more flexible without having splice wiring. 443751

by:

Very simple exchange of parts, everything went just perfect, no problems. I soldered all wire connections & used heat shrink tubing and electrical tape @ connections. I also eliminated the wire running through the inside of the Dexter axles and put the wire on the outside of the axle, that is the wire that runs from one side to the other. No more electrical shorts. 657731

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


These brake assemblies were an exact fit for my Dexter Axle. The kit came with everything needed to change it out, including the bolts to attach the brake backing plate. Very straightforward instructions. Fast shipping. I would recommend E-Trailer for any parts. 508654


Comments

I recently removed the brake drums to check the brake pad wear and found the pads to be wearing evenly and no adjustment was needed. Self adjusting brakes are the way to go as an easy upgrade to the brake system.

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


I was replacing the 20 year old electric brakes on my utility trailer and choose the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust electric trailer brake kit. The non Dexter brand cost less but after adding shipping and adding the nut kit they were the same as the Dexter brakes with free shipping and the nuts were included with the Dexter kit. This was one the easiest projects I have ever done. I had recently replaced the bearings so getting the brake drum off was a breeze. I used butt connectors with the heat shrink insulation wot connect the power to the bakes. I had thought this would be a two day project but did both sides in about 3 hours. And best of all, the new brakes function as they should, it was like I did not have electric brakes before. Again an easy and well worth it project. 486235


Comments

It has been a year since I installed the Nev-R-Adjust electric trailer brakes and they are still doing a great job. In October Hurricane Michael struck and I have used the utility trailer more than I ever anticipated and have had zero problems from the brakes. Moving equipment & debris became a daily task.

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


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

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

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


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

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


etrailer? What a find! There are many local trailer parts suppliers around my area, but finding genuine replacement parts is difficult. They all seem to be pushing "open-stock" generic parts that are of questionable lineage, as far as I'm concerned. etrailer not only has the parts that I need, but they are also a very good knowledge source to help find what you need and then to show you how to install it. I found etrailer by viewing one of their many YouTube instructional videos. I paid for expedited shipping and they handled everything else. I received exactly what I ordered when it was supposed to get here. It was very well packaged and in the high-quality OEM (Dexter) packaging. With their assistance, I was able yo get our Boy Scout Troop's trailer back on the road and ready for their next expedition adventure. 433655


Comments

Our Scout Troop is very satisfied with the decision to replace our old non-adjustable Dexter trailer brakes with the automatic adjusting ones when brake replacement was required. This self-adjust feature eliminates the need for my constant surveillance of the individual brakes adjustment so that uniform braking can be assured. The system has worked flawlessly and everyone who tows the trailer is happy with the performance. Buying the complete backing plate-shoe-actuator-solenoid assembly when service is required is also the best way to go. The kits came from eTrailer in Dexters original individual packaging, bundled into another sound shipping box. Instructions were clear and there was no risk of product damage from the loose shipping method that other suppliers or stores use. Id only like to suggest that new seals also be included in the kits. Otherwise, these brakes AND eTrailer are First-Class.

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


I ordered my electric brakes about 2 weeks ago and received them in very good packaging. The shipping boxes were very heavy with heavy paper wrapping around the inside of main box and no parts were scattered about. I Just installed them on my coleman tent trailer last week and it took about 2 hours to put them on. Very easy job. My trailer had not been installed with brakes so I had to do a little extra work to hook up wiring, but still an easy process. The instructions were very clear and easy to understand. I did have to also order a brake away switch after finding my trailer did not have one and I had ordered that from etrailer also. Over all I had a very good experience with my order and with their parts. Thanks etrailer 574529

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


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.

The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes arrived promptly and with no problems. I ordered nuts and washers separately as I read other reviews stating these brakes did not come with them. My brakes did include nuts for the plate studs. The brakes fit perfectly on my 1987 Airstream Sovereign. I set the initial adjustment very loose than drove about 30 miles in town and on the highway with stops from various speeds to ensure they self adjusted correctly. It’s only been a week since I installed these brakes but so far they seem to be great. 515718

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Nev-R-Adjust in Trailer Brakes


I ordered my new replacement brakes for my 2013 Aluma tadem axle trailer and did receive the order in a very timely manner. They were so easy to put on, and as of this time I am leaveing on vacation and will not have time to complete the job until I return. When I return I will finish the job and then break then in according to the instuctions. I used my old drums and so will do the brake-in at that time. The only thing I can say is I wish the 2 wires would have been about 3 inches longer, had to wait to mount the backing plate until the wires were hooked up. This could have been done by Aluma too, as they could have given the extra wire also. This is the only way to go, is affordable and it gets rid of all the rust and old parts. I would recommend this product to everyone. THANKS FOR THE GREAT SERVICE! 472375

  • The etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA and the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Kit # 23-464-465 referenced in your question are both self-adjusting assemblies that will work to replace the existing Dexter brakes on your 7,000 pound axle. Between the two options I actually do recommend going with the etrailer.com # AKEBRK-7-SA and not only because of the much friendlier cost. One thing that sets the etrailer.com brand brakes apart from other brand assemblies, including...

  • Recommended Parts Compatible with Dexter P12 7,000 lb Axle
  • We do not carry the replacement axle for your P12 7K Axle. We do however have the brake assemblies and bearing kit or hub/drum assemblies to assist based on what I can find online for a 7K Dexter axle. You will most likely want the Bearing Kit, 14125A/ 25580 Bearings, 10-36 Seal # BK3-200 to work with your axle and hub/drum assembly. To get the entire replacement assembly, you want the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 12" - 8 on 6-1/2 # 42866UC3-EZ....

  • Recommended Replacement Electric Brakes for 7,000 lb Tandem Axles
  • For a pair of 7,000 lb tandem axles I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465. These brakes are 12" diameter x 2" wide and will work with your 5 bolt mounting flange and 16" wheels. These brake assemblies are rated specifically for use with 7,000 lb axles instead of some brakes which can work with axles that have a wide range of capacity, such as between 5,200 lbs and 7,000 lbs. The only thing you need in addition to these brakes is Mounting Bolts...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Brakes for 7K Axle
  • Dexter does make excellent products, but in this case I recommend going with our Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA over the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465. They both have the same features except that the etrailer.com option has pads that are cut during production as opposed to snapped off. This results in the etrailer.com brake pads lasting longer and having better resistance against wear and tear.

  • Recommended 7,000 lb Axle System For Gooseneck Trailer
  • The only 7,000 lb axle we carry is the Timbren Axle-Less System. This is not your traditional through axle, but will work just as well. It is available in 2 options: a regular suspension and spindle # TASR7KS01 and a 4 inch drop spindle # TASR7KS02. Either of these will work well on a gooseneck trailer application and will replace leaf spring suspension components as well. It will require a cross frame member at the axle location or a 2 inch square tube (not included) to be added to...

  • Installation of Dexter 12 Inch Self-Adjusting Electric Brakes Right vs. Left
  • With the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465, the units should be labeled with a sticker with left hand being the driver's side and right hand being the passenger side. If they are not labeled, it is easy to determine just by sight. The magnet should be on the bottom and the pivoting arm should be facing the front of your trailer. I've attached a photo to assist. These assemblies may need to be initially manually...

  • Will Dexter 12 inch Brake Assemblies Fit 2009 Texas Pride Tandem Trailer
  • Most likely yes since the Dexter brake assemblies part number # 23-464-465 are designed to fit standard 7K trailer axles like you'd have but it wouldn't hurt to check first. Take of a hub drum and measure the inside diameter and width. If it's 12 inch by 2 inch and the assembly is held to the brake flange with a 5 bolt pattern then this kit is the correct fit for it. I also attached a review video for these assemblies and a link to a page on adding brakes to a trailer you might find helpful.

  • Recommendation Of 7000-lbs Axles To Replace 5200-lbs Axles On Fifth Wheel
  • Unfortunately the standard axles in our selection available have a maximum capacity of 3500-lbs. I do have a Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Item # TASR7KS01 option which would also replace your suspension. Timbren systems provide smooth, quiet, and safe rides without the need of an axle. Timbren systems also give you an independent suspension for better handling. It also has a 7000-lbs weight capacity. You would also need new trailer hub-and-drum assembly like Item # AKHD-865-7-2-EZ-K....

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Brake Assembly for 6K Axles
  • The brake flange for 3 inch axle tubes is the Redline Brake Mounting Flange for 3" Round Axle # 4-44-1 which has a 5 on 3-7/8 inch bolt pattern. This is the industry standard and I don't have anything like what your mentioned with 10 holes and 8-1/4 inches apart. For the brake assemblies you mentioned which are compatible with the 5 bolt flange listed above, I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465. For...

  • Recommended Dexter Axle and Hubs with Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies
  • The brake assemblies on the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern # 8327864-EB are not the automatic self-adjusting assemblies. You can instead use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA to swap them out. Another option is to use the following parts to give you the self-adjusting brake assemblies and save you some money: Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Shoe Wear on Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 that you mentioned have a brake material thickness of 3/16 inch. If you are measuring only the brake shoe material and not the metal plate and have that 3/16 inch measurement, then it appears the assemblies were either not installed correctly or they did not function as designed. I recommend replacing them if you have any question about their braking abilities. It could be...

  • Which Electric Brakes Will Give the Best Performance?
  • Dexter and Hayes/Al-Ko make quality brakes and one isn't necessarily better than the other. The majority of the time, the biggest factor in determining the life of a brake is going to be the load it is asked to help stop, the ruggedness of the ride, how often it is used and proper adjustment. Brakes that are self-adjusting such as the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465 are popular because adjustments are made automatically and enhance the brake's performance - and...

  • Recommended Electric Brake Assemblies Compatible with Dexter Utility Hubs
  • Based on the hub picture, you have what they refer to as Utility hubs and will need the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465. These brake assemblies will allow you to adjust only at install and then they will automatically adjust as the brake shoes wear down to continue to give you accurate braking on your trailer.

  • Can Manual Adjusting Brakes Be Swapped out for Self-Adjusting Brakes
  • Yes, the self-adjusting version of the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-181 is the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Assembly part # 23-465. This assembly is for the right hand side and if you need the left hand side you can use part # 23-464 or part # 23-464-465 for both right and left hand side. The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit has self-adjusting brakes meaning you do not have to turn the adjuster screw for even brake pad wear after the initial...

  • How to Choose Replacement Electric Brakes for 2003 Layton Skyline Camper
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465 referenced in your question are 12 inch brake assemblies designed for 7,000 pound axles. Based on my research, the total weight of your Layton Skyline Camper should be between 4,700 and 5,700 pounds, depending on the exact model you have. The camper also has 2 axles, which would make it unlikely to have axles with a higher 7,000 pound capacity. In order to find the correct replacement brakes for your camper, you will...
