Video Transcript for Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit Installation

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the 10 inch Dexter Never Adjust electric trailer brake kit, for 3,500 pound axle, for the left and right hand side. It's going to be part number 23-468-469. It's also available individually for the left hand side using part number 23-468, and the right hand side, using part number 23-469. So here's what our brakes are going to look like once we have them installed. Now these are going to be a 10 inch diameter brake and be about 2-1/4 inches deep.Now one of the nicest things about these brakes is the fact that we're not going to have to adjust them, maybe the initial adjustment up front, but after that, they're going to be self adjusting. So wherever the brakes start wearing down, they're going to automatically adjust out, so they're at the right pressure.

And the fact that it's a whole assembly, it's going to be a lot easier than replacing each little spring or trying to just replace the shoes on your old assembly.The installation is going to be rather simple. We're going to take our old brakes off, or if we're adding new brakes, we're just going to push the brake assembly into place and we're going to have four nuts that we're going to put on the back of the studs. And then we'll just have two wires to hook up. Now our brake assembly is going to come as a kit. We're going to have the left and the right hand side.

They're going to come with all the mounting hardware as well as the plugs to go in the back, so we can make our initial adjustments.Compared to some of the other self adjusting brakes like the etrailer self adjusting brake kit, they're going to be almost identical. But the main big difference between the two of them is going to be the brake pads themselves. The Dexter is here, you can see on the edge where it's not exactly super clean, that's because when they manufacture these, they score them and then snap them. Whereas with the etrailer brand, they're going to be a nice clean cut because they're fully cut, instead of scored and snapped.Now overtime, these can cause a little bit more wear on the edges because it's not a super clean cut there, but Dexter is a well known brand, and they do offer a quality product. If you're comparing these two manual adjustment brakes, these are definitely going to take it there because they're going to be much more user friendly, because they're going to acquire that much less maintenance.

We're not going to have to crawl underneath our trailer, making adjustments every so often, because they're going to adjust themselves.So now that we've seen what our brakes look like and gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get them installed. To begin our installation, we went ahead and jacked our trailer up. Now we are using a jack, but we also have a jack stand underneath the frame towards the back, and we removed the wheel So now we're going to need to remove the dust cap. Take a screwdriver, go along the edge, just slowly work it out.Now, with the dust cap removed, we're going to go ahead and clean up some of this grease so we can see what we're working with, because we're going to need to pull the bearings out. And regardless if you have brakes or not, like we don't have here, we're still going to have to pull the hub off and pull all the bearings out as well.

Now if you have a cotter pin or a keeper tab, you're going to want to bend that out of the way, or pull the cotter pin out. That way we can get that castle nut to come off.Grab a pair of channel locks, and we'll remove that castle nut, so we can pull everything out. Once we have the nut removed, we'll go ahead and remove all the washers and the keepers. We'll clean them up and set them aside. Sometimes it helps if you just pull on the hub a little bit, and the rest of the washers and that bearing will come out. Now we're going to remove the hub. You're going to want to clean off the spindle extremely well. Get all that old grease and the other kind of debris that may be stuck on there from driving around.So with this spindle clean and the mounting surface cleaned up a little bit, this point, if you have brakes, you're going to want to remove them and typically these four mounting flanges is where there's going to be two nuts, on each side that we're going to have to remove. And then we can pull our brake assembly off. But if you're adding brakes like we are, we just want to make sure that that mounting surface is pretty cleaned up, doesn't have any major debris on there, and then we can grab our brake assembly.You want to make sure you grab the correct one. They are going to be labeled, it's going to be a sticker, it's going to tell us is the right hand side. And we are working on the right side of the trailer. Now on the back you'll notice that we're going to have those four studs coming out, that's go into those four mounting holes and you want to make sure that your wires are going to be up out of the way when we go to slide it in place. So we'll go through the center, having the spindle come out. We'll line up the holes. Just kind of hold it in place for now. Then we're going to take the included hex nuts and we're going to thread them onto the back, to make sure our brake assembly doesn't fall off.Just want to make sure you get all four of them on, at least hand tight, and then we can come back and tighten them down. We're going to come back at 11/16 socket. I'm going to torque that hardware down, and we'll find the torque specification in our instructions. Just make sure you're paying attention to the size because they do list several different sizes in the instruction. So now we can move on to the electrical connections of our brake assembly. We're to have two green wires coming out of the back. Now we already went ahead and ran our brake wires.One, the black wire's going to be our brake signal, and our white wire's going to be our ground. Now it doesn't matter in what order we hook these up. We're just going to take one of the green wires. I'm going to take a blue heat shrink butt connector. Slide my wire in, then crimp it in place. But I'm going to take one of my other wires, either the ground or the brake signal, put it into the other end of my butt connector, and crimp it down. We're going to repeat the same process for our other green wire coming out of the back. We're going to come back with a heat gun and shrink down my connectors. Now if you're using an open flame like a lighter or a mini torch, want to be extremely careful not to burn or char the connectors or the wires themselves.With our connections made and our brake assembly torqued down, we can go and repack our bearings, and put everything back in place, and put the new hub and drum assembly off. Now we already have our wheel back on. And you want to check for a slight drag, whenever you're spinning the tire. You don't want it to be too much to where you're really trying to force that wheel to turn, but you also don't want it so loose that it's just free spinning. You want to hear that little bit of a slight drag as you're turning it, but if your brakes aren't adjusted to the right spot just yet, we can go and move underneath to the backside of the brakes and we can pull those two plastic plugs.There's going to be two plugs at the bottom of our brake assembly, and that's where we're going to be making our adjustments. Now it's going to be easiest to use a brake tool to make the adjustments inside the drum. There's a little wheel that's got some teeth on it, and we're going to want to turn that, and that'll will tighten up our brakes. But if there somewhat close, that's okay, we'll go ahead and leave them alone, because they are self adjusting and after a few applications they'll start to adjust into their appropriate spot. And those plugs will just snap into place. And now that this side is done, we can go and repeat that same process for the other side.And that'll finish up your look at the Dexter 10 inch Never Adjust electric trailer brake kit, part number 23-468-469.

Replacing my non-adjustable brakes with these adjustable ones. Dexter makes the best value units. etrailer had a good price, and VERY fast shipping as usual. Love all the useful videos to help with installation. 483171

So wonderful to have brakes automatically adjusted instead of doing it manually and wondering if all four wheels have equal braking. I know what happens when one brakes more than the others: over-heating and failed wheel bearings. Not fun. 663205

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

Replaced the Axel Teknology made in China brakes that failed due to poor grease seals with Dexter brand made in USA. All parts made in a ISO 9001 facility. MAGA! New brakes perform great. 553826

Brakes are working great and should for a long time. See more trailer manufacturers are using Dexter now. Buy products made in the USA!

These brake kits came fully assembled and clearly labeled. I was replacing a brake that got warped because the backing plate studs had come loose and the actuator arm didn't move freely anymore. I decided to go with a higher quality USA made product with self-adjusters. These are very high quality and a moron can put them on. I'm living proof. The only pain in the neck part for me was drilling out the old studs. That took a few minutes with a high quality Cobolt 7/16" bit. Then it is just a matter of 2 wire splices (I soldered them also), four nuts (I put locktite blue on them), and minimal adjustment of the brake shoes, put on the hubs, re-grease, and good to go! Thank you. 550121


Comments
Overall I would say the assembly is working well, however I am a bit disappointed with the braking power. I adjusted the shoes manually and then adjust my electric actuator to the maximum, and I only get moderate braking. Maybe I have to change the other 2 axles, but for now it is working well enough.

I called etrailer with little knowledge of the parts I needed for my project. I changed my boat trailer from old surge hydraulic brakes to electric. With the expert help of Bryan W. I received all the proper parts from brakes to bearings. I’m super satisfied with the support and products. I will recommend etrailer to anyone looking for great service 638629

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.

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

Two backing plates with all the hardware and drums. Perfect fit, and came quick! And all for a VERY good price. I will use ETRAILER whenever I get a trailer hardware problem. My local repair shop took one of my trailers did all four brakes over and changed me 4000.. I saved myself 3550., and it only took me 6 hours and I was rolling again. 367181

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.

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

We have been going on a road trips out west every year and on a few occasions we ran out of brakes on our big van. Our pop up camper didn't have any. Last year I purchased these electric brakes and they are great help. 658587

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.

Very helpful over the phone ordering the correct break assemblys. The breaks arrived a day early so I was able to install them before I left for work which was nice. OTR Driver! Installing complete assemblys helped make the job faster and knowing I have all new parts vs just break shoes helps to insure me I'll have long life with the breaks on my trailer! The fit was great and new nuts were provided to mount the back plate to the axle! Very happy with the entire process from ordering to completion of the install! When needed will order again from etrailer! Thanks! 405787

One of the easiest brake jobs you'll have to do. Squirt a little WD40 on old nuts, or something similar, and let sit a while. Disconnect wires, undo nuts, pull assembly off. Put new assembly on, make sure they are on correct side( it matters, watch video). I ordered the nut and lock washer set, just to be sure. These came with just the nut, so you could get the washers separately. Tighten nuts to proper torque, as stated in directions, connect wires, and done. I also ordered the plug kit for adjustment window. You need two per side. These did come with them, but good for me that I ordered more, as one arrived chopped in half. Can't knock points off for that. 454270

Well, you may not see the actual brake controller in these shots, but I wanted to display just how much etrailer product was used to restore this old trailer. Re-decked the trailer, new wheel bearings, added brakes on all 4 with this brake controller and battery powered emergency disconnect... new rust protection, primer and paint, new lights and wiring all the way around, new wiring harness/box, and new tire carrier. Nearly all product except the decking and paint was from etrailer. the customer support was fantastic, I highly recommend this company! 546742

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies and Drums for Dexter P-11 model SLR SND 490400 Axle
    I reached out to my contact at Dexter and based on the information you gave, they said is it a spring axle with a 3500 lb capacity. Based on that, I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3.5K # 23-468-469 which comes with the backing plate and the 4 bolt mounting pattern. For your drum assemblies, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 # 84546UC3-EZ...

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
    It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle. It is also not advised to use self-adjusting braking assemblies on one axle and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the other. The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns. If you have a 3,500 lb axle or multiple 3,500 lb axles on your trailer then you will need to use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake...

  • Trailer Axle Type and Brake Type on 2017 Jayco Feather 25BH Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
    Recreational trailers have either leaf spring axles or torsion axles. A leaf spring axle is easy to identify since it will be bolted to a leaf spring stack. A torsion axle does not use leaf springs to absorb road shock; instead the axle tube contains 4 rubber cords that provide the flexing to absorb shock. Torsion axles will have their spindle not straight on the end of the axle but instead on an arm that pivots, as shown in the linked photo I prepared for you. You can contact Jayco...

  • Replacement Dexter 3,500 lb Trailer Brake Assemblies
    Due to the amount of rust on your trailer brake assemblies it's a good idea to replace them since it sounds like they aren't working well and are rusting to the point that they might fail altogether soon. For a set of self-adjusting brake assemblies for your Dexter 3,500 lb axles the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust kit part # 23-468-469 would be your best option. Once installed they might feel a little weak at first but once you apply the brakes a few times they'll tension themselves to the proper...

  • How To Find Braking Assemblies For 2003 Dutchmen Travel Trailer Model 28BH-SSL
    There are not normally markings on the brake assemblies themselves to tell you what size you need; however, there is a way to find out which size brake assemblies you need. You want to measure your hub diameter and depth using the diagram I have attached. You also want to find out if the trailer has electric or hydraulic brake assemblies. To find out which capacity of brake you need you want to check the axle for the axle capacity which is normally stamped into the metal or on a sticker. From...

  • Brake Shoe Thickness and When to Replace Dexter 3,500 Brake Pads
    I went out into our warehouse to measure the pad thickness of a Dexter 3,500 10 by 2-1/4 inch brake assembly like the part # 23-468-469 and just the brake pad portion of the shoe measured .18 of an inch. The entire shoe thickness was .29 of an inch and the metal portion of the shoe measured .11 of an inch. Dexter says they need to be replaced when the pad material gets down to 1/16 of an inch (.0625) or less.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Electric Brakes for Travel Trailer
    I can tell you exactly how to determine which brake assemblies will work for your travel trailer, and though it isn't quite as simple as taking the brakes off, it really isn't all that difficult with a bit of added information. To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your trailer, you just need to know your axle's weight capacity, your mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your drum. For example, the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit...

  • Recommended Electric Brake Assemblies and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Dexter 3500 lb Axle
    For your PJ Trailer with Dexter 3500 lb axle, I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-468-469 as well as the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles # 84546UC3. This combination will be a great fit for your axle and will work seamlessly together. I've attached a couple videos to further assist. The brake assemblies will only need to be initially adjusted at install and then will never need to be readjusted for proper fit and use. They will...

  • Should I Use 10 or 12 Inch Brakes on a Trailer with 3,500 Pound Axles and 16 Inch Rims
    Brakes are designed to fit the hubs that fit the axles not the rims. So you want to stick with 3,500 pound, 10 inch brakes like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust, part # 23-468-469. Larger 12 inch brakes won't fit your hubs. It is more common to see 15 inch rims on a 3,500 pound axle but a long as your bolt pattern matches and you have the clearance 16 inch rims can work. But even the larger rims use the same size brakes because they're using the same size hubs.

  • Replacement Hubs and Brake Assembly for 2000 Four Star Trailer
    I spoke with my contact at Dexter regarding the axle on your 2000 Four Star Trailer. Using the serial number that you provided (thank you!) she was able to verify that this is a Torflex 3,500 pound axle. The spindle uses the # L68149 inner bearing and # L44649 outer bearing. There are a few possible bolt patterns that could be on your hubs, so you will just need to find a hub and drum assembly that matches your existing bolt pattern. If you are unsure what this is, I have attached a...

  • New Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brakes are Not Locking Up
    You are not wrong but at the same time you do not want trailer brakes to lock up. The brakes you have, # 23-468-469, are self-adjusting but it takes some time for the shoes to extend out far enough for normal braking. This is why we recommend making an initial adjustment at the time of installation. That way you don't have to wait for them to adjust out themselves. After this initial adjustment you won't have to adjust them again. I have included a link to a video that shows how to...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Brake Assemblies for 2012 Forest River 6502 Vibe
    I'd need to know the capacity of the axle(s) on your trailer as well as the diameter of the drums. Most likely you have 10 inch brake assemblies and would want the part # 23-468-469 for a pair of left and right assemblies that are self-adjusting. These are 3,500 lb axle assemblies that self adjust instead of requiring you to adjust the brake tightness.

  • Can Parking Brake Be Added To Electric Trailer Brakes Not Equipped With Parking Brake Feature
    We do have electric brakes that come with the parking brake. I recommend part # K23-086-00 for the left hand(driver side). For the passenger side you can use part # K23-087-00. A parking brake cannot be added to the # 23-468-469 brake assembly you asked about.

  • Troubleshooting Weak Braking After Installing New Dexter Electric Brakes on Trailer
    If you have self-adjusting assemblies like the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Brake Kit # 23-468-469 installed on your trailer, they will indeed continue to adjust as you pull the trailer around. It does sound like you performed the initial manual adjustment correctly, so you should see improved performance as you continue to use them. Driving around in a parking lot and using the brake controller's manual override like you mentioned is a good way to do this. Otherwise, since the brakes were recently...

  • Replacement Braking Assemblies for a 2007 Fleetwood Highlander Niagara 4131
    I looked up the weight of your 2007 Fleetwood Highlander Niagara 4131 and it would appear based on the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) that you have a single 3,500 lb axle. If this is the case then the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-468-469 or the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA for a cost effective option is correct. However, in order to confirm this you would want to count the number of brake mounting flange bolts and measure the overall...

  • How to Pick Out Brake Assemblies for Toy Hauler
    I can help you find the right assemblies, but I do not know exactly which ones you have on your trailer. To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # 23-468-469 is a 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch thick brake assembly set. You also want to determine what the bolt pattern is of your...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Rockwell 3500 lb Axles
    Rockwell 3,500 lb axles and Dexter parts for the axles can be compatible as can other brands. For instance for brake assemblies, you can use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3.5K # 23-468-469 or the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA.

  • Hub and Drum for a Dexter 3,500 Lb Axle with 5 on 5 Inch Bolt Pattern
    The correct hub/drum for your Dexter 3,500 lb axle is more than likely going to be the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 84556UC3 or part # 84556UC3-EZ (E-Z Lube). The L68149/L44649 bearings and 10-19 grease seal that this kit uses is fairly standard for this axle. However, there are certain instances in which this is not the case. In order to be sure you can either give me the serial number off of the white tag on the axle or read me the bearing and seal numbers off the parts...

  • Dexter Self Adjusting Brake Assemblies for 2006 Casita Travel Trailer with 3,500 lb Axle
    I don't know which specific 2006 Casita travel trailer you have, but if your Dexter axle is a 3,500 lb capacity axle then the brake kit part # 23-468-469 that you referenced would be the correct kit. Typically you can find the axle capacity on a plate near the coupler of the trailer with the VIN or you can measure the diameter of the axle. If it's 2-3/8 inch in diameter then you do have a 3,500 lb axle and this kit is the correct setup.

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies and Hubs for Dexter 3,500 lb P-15 SLR Axle
    For your Dexter P-15 3500 lb axle, I recommend starting with the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3.5K # 23-468-469. These assemblies will mount directly to the 4 bolt flange on your axle using the included hardware. For your drum hubs, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3 if you don't have the spindle with the built in grease zerk. If you do have the EZ Lube spindles with the built in grease zerk, then...

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for a Dexter 4,400 Pound Trailer Axle
    There should be a tag or information stamped into the axle. It sounds like you have the D44 axle which is a 4,400 pound Dexter axle. If it was made after May 1, 2009 then Dexter lists brakes # K23-462-463-00 as the correct brakes for the axle. If the axle was made before May 1, 2009 then the correct brakes are # 23-454-455.
