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

Parts received ahead of the expected delivery date. Replaced trailer brakes with new and everything went well. Watched a couple of etrailer videos related to the new brake parts before i ordered so all questions I had were answered before I made the purchase. It may be a while before I need anything again; but I will make future purchases. 574191

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.

Great customer service in making sure we had the right parts to begin with and following up with excellent customer service to make sure we were satisfied.

Very nice product. Just installed today. Installed these on a boat trailer hauling a 26ft boat. After adjusting and driving around for a few minutes I could definitely tell I had help stopping the trailer from the brakes. I did have to turn my brake controller all the way up to get a noticeable difference in braking. Hoping after using for a bit they will adjust to where they need to be and I can back my controller power back down. But overall great fit and great product. Very helpful staff at etrailer and great communication! 495770

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I've mounted the first left brake assembly . Forgot to order seals for repack so waiting for those to arrive from etrailer. It looks like etrailer has the best seals, I checked locally best was not as good as etrailer. The brake assembly went on easy perfect fit. The only complaint thus far was packing. The 2 right side assemblies came boxed inside the carton, however the left sides were loose and roughed up a little more by ups. I think they'll be fine, though I was surprised to see them packed this Way. 380282

  • What Is The Difference Between Dexter And etrailer Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies
  • There are a couple of differences between the etrailer # AKEBRK-35-SA and the Dexter # 23-468-469 brake assemblies. The pad on the etrailer brake is a little thick so that means the etrailer brakes will last a bit longer. Also, the etrailer brakes are cut so the edges are a bit smoother than the Dexter brakes which are snapped off of a long strip.

  • Brake Assemblies and Hub for 1975 Airstream Camper
  • There is a way to find out what replacement hub and drum you need; first, you need to know the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper such as # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 3,500 lb Trailer Hub/Drum with 5 on 4-3/4 inch Bolt Pattern
  • For a hub/drum with a 3,500 lb capacity and the bolt pattern of 5 on 4-3/4 inch like you said you need you'd want the Dexter part # 845476UC3 which would fit and work well. The drum size is 10 inch and for assemblies you'd want the # 23-468-469 for self-adjusting assemblies for both sides of the trailer.

  • Comparing the eTrailer and Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kits
  • I currently have three diffrent self-adjusting assemblies for your boat trailer with 10" x 2-1/4" electric drum brakes which are attached for you below. eTrailer Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA (3,500 Axles) Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-468-469 (3,500 Axles) Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # K23-478-479 (4,400 Axles) The eTrailer brand is going to be the economy line and the Dexter brand is going to be the premium line....

  • Heavy Duty Equalizer Kit and Trailer Brake Assemblies for Dexter 3,500 lb Axles
  • Since you said your equalizers are the same dimensions as the 013-122-04 (2.88" tall x 7.67" centers) then the correct kit you need is the part # K71-449-00 as that's what this comes with. This gives you new equalizers and shackles. For a set of left and right Dexter 3,500 lb brake assemblies you'd then want the part # 23-468-469. These are self adjusting as well.

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Install Trailer Brakes on a Load Rite Trailer Model UT6512
  • Looks like your Load Rite trailer UT6512 has a 3,500 lb axle. Most likely it's a standard 3,500 lb trailer axle but first you have to check to see if the axle has brake mounting flanges. If you can get back to me with whether or not you have brake flanges and the brand of your axle (most likely Lippert or Dexter) I can see which kit we have that may work. Check out the link I attached to see a guide to use for adding brakes to your trailer.

  • How to Use Dexter EZ-Lube Axles and Nev-R-Adjust Brakes
  • Yes, you would need to install a new axle in obtain to obtain the "EZ-Lube" feature as it is built- into the axle itself. The axle capacity you need would be based off of both the axle capacity you have now and the gross trailer weight (GTW) of the trailer. The axle kits do not include leaf springs. They would need to be purchased separately if you wanted to replace them. In order to recommend the correct axle for you, I would need to know the distance from the center of each spring seat...

  • Right Hand Side Electric Trailer Brake Locks Up with Slightest Pressure on Brake Pedal
  • It sounds like an internal problem with the brake magnet. The first thing to do is visually inspect the magnets. If you can see the copper windings coming through then the magnets will need to be replaced. To further test the magnets you will need a meter, such as # ALL648349 if you need one, and a 12 volt battery such as a car battery. Then you can follow the help article I have linked for you that shows the amperage and resistance levels you should be seeing for different magnet sizes. If...

  • 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.

  • 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...
