I had these ordered from another supplier that did not have inventory and did not know when their shipment would arrive. I had a trailer torn apart and needed to finish it. etrailer had the parts, shipped them immediately, and the job is complete and the customer is happy. Thanks etrailer!! 902446

Excellent service and product! Placed order around noon and it showed delivery in about 5 days, which was good. Got notified that evening it was processed and SHIPPED! Received it exactly 48 hours after I placed the order. Now that’s what you call service! Ordered electric brakes and drums for a 2000lb axle, on a 1994 Jayco King pop-up trailer. Converting it from a hydraulic to electric brake system. The parts fit perfectly. Thank you for the service. Loved your videos on installing and pairing the brake units and drums to use, very helpful. I will definitely be ordering from eTrailer in the future. 866767

On the first order for trailer brakes, I did not consult the etrailer professsionls, and had order the wrong size brake assemblies. They arrived quickly, it soon became obviously that I had messed up. I called etrailer, talked with a representative about returning part, got a shipping lablel out in email to mail the parts back for a refund. Talk with a sales person to order and get the size that is needed for my trailer with about a week turnaround time. Pleasant service, timely delivery, and good selection of parts at reasonable prices. 799154

I have a Triton ATV trailer and a hunting cabin in the mountains of WVA. Years of travel to the area did a number on the brakes because we cross a creek several times on the way in.

etrailer products and service are excellent! With their helpful videos and staff (plus a little help from Curt Manufacturing and our teardrop trailer manufacturer (CampInn)) I was able to install electric brakes on the trailer, and a controller in my vehicle by myself.

I purchased the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit, the Drum assembly, a Draw Tite controller, and the install kit. An upgrade to my newly purchased camper which came with no brakes. All parts were of high quality, well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. Customer support was first class, taking me through the purchase process item by item assuring I had all items necessary for this task. Instructions were good, but I recommend checking the etrailer.com online version for more detail. No issues at all installing the new equipment. High marks for etrailer.com. Performance is very good. 601279

I installed this equipment on my pop up camper to resolve a brake rumble problem. It turns out my old parts did not include a double lip seal. When I would grease the bearings through the EZ lube axle, the grease got past the seal and into the brake drum, causing the rumbling when I would hit the brakes. The double lip seal from etrailer solved that problem. A double lip seal is highly recommended with an EZ lube axle. Thanks etrailer! 503389

  • Choosing Between Dexter Axle and Axle-Tech Replacement Brakes for a 2009 Palomino Pony Pop-Up
    Both the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-47-48 and the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-2 are excellent options to replace the brake assemblies on your 2009 Palomino Pony pop-up camper. A lot of the Dexter Axle kit price comes from the name in all honesty. This is mostly because they have been around for a long time and they really know what they are doing so you can trust their quality. The brake kit that we sell is made by Axle-Tech which is also a great company it just isn't...

  • Brakes, Hubs, and 7-Way Plug for Viking Popup Camper
    We can most likely help with what you need but we need more info from you to pick out what you need. For hub/drum replacements I need to get the bearing numbers from your old hubs or the dimensions of the spindle on your trailer axle. From there we will be able to determine which brake assemblies you'd need. Then for wheel and tires I need the bolt pattern of your wheels and the tire size that's on the sidewall as well. Do you have a 4-way or a 7-way connector?

  • Coil Resistance of Dexter Axle 7" Brake Assembly Kit
    I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle and she said that the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-47-48 have a coil resistance of 3.9 ohms per magnet. When it comes to wire size we recommend at least 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 (sold by the foot) for brake assemblies.

    So long as the hubs you are using are able to fit a 14 inch wheel, then the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 2,000 lbs # 23-47-48 will work. It isn't the brakes that are incompatible with wheels, it is really that usually hubs will not be able to support larger wheels, and these brakes are going to mostly work with 10", 12", and 13" wheels. You will also need Mounting Hardware for 7" Brake Assemblies # BRKH7 with these brakes. I have added a link...

The electric brakes measure 7" diameter x 1-1/4" wide so they are narrower than the 7" diameter x 1-3/4" wide hydraulic drum brakes, meaning they will fit in the drum; they also use the same 4-bolt mounting flange so you are set!

Parking brakes aren't required so if you would rather use standard brakes then you can use the part # 23-47-48 that you referenced instead.

Using a 12V battery, like the one from your tow vehicle, ground the negative terminal and then test the pin that corresponds to the brake controller pin on your tow vehicle side 7-Way.

  • What Size are Electric Brakes on a 2,000 Pound Dexter Trailer Axle
    Most 10 inch brake assemblies are for 3,500 pound trailer axles. There is one oddball that is for 3,000 pound axles but none for 2,000 pound axles. For a 2K axle you will be looking at 7 x 1-1/4 inch brakes such as etrailer's own # AKEBRK-2 or Dexter set # 23-47-48. I have linked video reviews of both sets for you.

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for 2011 Jayco Baja Tent Trailer
    Which exact Baja model do you have? According to specs found online, the Jayco Baja 12E has a GVWR just north of 3000 lbs, which means it should use a hub with a 10 inch inside diameter. Please measure the inside diameter of your brake drums to confirm. I've provided a photo showing where to measure. If you find that you do indeed have a 7 inch ID drum, the # 23-47-48 brake assemblies you mentioned would work perfectly. If you have a 10 inch ID drum, use # 23-26-27.

    What we refer to as part # 23-47-48 is a kit we assemble that includes the Dexter K23-047 and K23-048. They are the same exact parts, we're just selling them together as a single part number. They would be an exact replacement for the existing brake assemblies on your trailer. I couldn't speak to the trailer manufacturer's decision to use a 2K rated braking system on an 800 lb rated axle, but the 7 inch brake assembly is the smallest available, which I'm sure would be the most likely reason.

  • Can New Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes be Installed and Used on a Boat Trailer
    Modern electric brakes such as # 23-47-48 work fine on boat trailers . . . as long as you unplug the trailer before getting the boat in the water. But even then the way the magnets are made now getting submerged won't short them out. It is the wiring you have to be careful with. That is why I recommend using heat shrink butt connectors such as # DW05745-10 to seal out water when connecting the brake magnet wires to the trailer wiring.

Thankfully the hub manufacturers we carry all have the same overall length for the hubs so there's no need to worry about that. The hub/drum part # 8-173-16UC3-EZ would work great on your spindle as long as it has a diameter of 1.063 inch where the bearings ride. The brake assemblies part # 23-47-48 would fit this as well.

    All new trailer brakes like Dexter 2K set # 23-47-48, including even the self-adjusting variety of brakes, will need an initial manual pressure adjustment using the star wheel adjuster. This adjuster is shown in both the linked photo and the video at about the :30 mark.

Proper pressure will result in slight drag on the wheels as you try to rotate them; they...

    The recommended hub/drum size for a 13" diameter wheel is one that is for 10" diameter brakes. The wheel will still fit on the hub/drum assuming the bolt pattern matches there is just less surface area on the hub for the wheel. However, you are only 1" off of the recommended specification so you would more than likely be fine with either 7" or 10" braking assemblies but there would obviously be an increase in stopping power with the larger assembly.
