Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes - RH and LH 7 Inch Electric Drum Brakes - 23-47-48

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at the Dexter seven inch by 1 1/4 inch Left Hand Driver's Side and Right Hand Passenger Side Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for 2,000 pound and 2,200 pound axles. Now, electric brakes are easier to install, they offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Basically, they just require only an electric brake controller, which do sell separately on our website, there's no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary. Now, this kit here will include both the left hand driver's side and the right hand passenger's side electric trailer brake assemblies, and the way to tell which side goes on which, of course, you'll see there's a label on it. If that label wasn't there, the way you would be able to tell is you look at the size of the brake shoes or the pads on the shoes, so this pad you can see goes from here to here, this shoe pad's all the way from here to here.

So the shorter pad is the primary shoe, the longer pad is the secondary shoe, and the primary shoe will always face the front of the trailer. So that's the way you can tell what side of the trailer these will go on. Now, the brake shoes themselves are lined with an automotive grade friction material, and that friction material is fully bonded, it's not riveted to the shoes, gives you a lot longer life, more breaking torque. Now, there is an adjustment wheel at the bottom here that you do have to do a periodic manual adjustment on the brakes, and a way to adjust them is you just go to the back here, pop out this adjuster plug, and then put either a screwdriver or brake adjustment tool in there and turn that wheel until you get your brakes adjusted correctly. You'll also notice the mounting hardware is included for installation.

These parts are made in the USA. Application again, these fits most standard hub and drum assemblies including Dexter, Lippert, and AL-KO. The size on these brakes we mentioned are seven inch diameter by 1 1/4 inch wide, and where those measurements are, the diameter would be the diameter of the shoes from one end to the other, so there's your seven inch diameter, the width, the 1 1/4 inch width is gonna be the width of the brake pad, there's your 1 1/4 inch. And if you noticed on the back, it has the four studs right here, so this is designed to fit a brake mounting flange of a four bolt pattern. Once you put those on, you can see, we mentioned comes with the hardware, you just put the nuts on there and torque them down.

Again, they fit axles 2,000 pound size and 2,200 pound. They do use seven inch brake drums, and these will fit 10 inch, 12 inch, and 13 inch wheels. Now, these are electric brakes, you can see the two wires back here, it does require those to be connected, one goes to a ground, the other goes to the brake feed for power, and you can use either wire for either function. But that should do it for the review on the Dexter seven inch by 1 1/4 inch Left Hand Driver's Side, Right Hand Passenger Side Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for 2,000 pound and 2,200 pound axles..

Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - - 2,000- to 2,200-lbs - 23-47-48

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (52 Customer Reviews)

7" x 1-1/4" Driver's-side and passenger's-side electric trailer brake assemblies fit 2,000- to 2,200-lb axles. Mounting flanges have a 4-bolt pattern. Fit 10" to 13" wheels.


A couple minor things to point out but overall I am very satisfied with the form, fit, and function of these brakes: 1) Be aware if you chose to shorten the wires, stripping them is not easy. The insulation appears to be molded over and in-between the wire strands. 2) I installed these onto a Flexiride torsion axle and the new mounting studs are shorter than the ones I was replacing. After installing and torquing the nuts they were barely flush with the studs. Regarless, I recommend using Permatex threadlocker.


Put them on my Triton dual tandem jet ski trailer to provide a little stopping power rather than the constant slam forward and back on the hitch receiver. I have them mounted on the front axle with 13” rims, setup works exactly how I expected.


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 had never installed electric brakes before. Everything works perfectly!


The service you guys provided is great. Dexter brakes can use improvement though. I'm sure I'm not the first one to notice. The drum/ bearings/ seal package had the seal bent some from the way it was packaged using plastic wrap. I straightened it out and used it - it will be fine. Hopefully the brakes will work well. Thank you and God bless.


I specifically asked the customer service rep through etrailers chat program if there were 4 sets in this package. I was told there were. I only received two. If etrailer saves the chat records they will see I am correct. Extremely dissatisfied.

Gosh, that is frustrating. I have already sent your information along to our customer service team to get this straightened out. Thanks for letting us know so that we have a chance to make it right!

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 online version for more detail. No issues at all installing the new equipment. High marks for Performance is very good.

After one year and over 2000 miles of use, no problems at all. Again, high marks.

Kits were fairly easy to install and seem to work fine so far.

No issues. Brakes are working fine.
John - 05/19/2023


Perfect match! The brakes work excellent! Great product. My original brakes were the exact ones and they lasted me eight years with no troubles.

Excellent! I use my trailer all the time, the brakes work awesome.
Robert - 08/31/2021


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!!

Great. I was redoing a 4 place snowmobile trailer. New lights, wiring, brakes and hubs. Trailer is like new thanks to your parts.
Dennis H - 10/23/2021


After receiving the correct parts for my trailer ( ordered the wrong parts and contacted customer service that did an excellent job helping me out!!! Got the correct parts) over all experiences, installation is straight forward, customer service is excellent and professional!!


Great quality and easy to install , I would recommend these replacement brakes to anyone needing to replace their trailer brakes and did I mention low price for made in the USA !

Easy to install and works great , would buy again !
Connie T - 04/24/2019


Thanks brakes work good again off to the woods now!!


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. Your replacement brakes were a great product, easy to install, work great , and were very reasonably priced. I'm very satisfied with the product.


Packaged well. Fast shipping. Perfect fit! Highly recommend!!


Factory Dexter parts for my snowmobile traile that include the backing plate nuts/ lock washers and rubber plugs. Shipment was received in a few days. Price was significantly cheaper than from other companies (which don't include the fasteners).


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!


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.


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.


Great experience so far. This item was shipped very promptly and out of curiosity what if i got the wrong size ?

If you bought the wrong size, then customer service can send you a return label and you can order the correct one.

Direct replacement for my 2000lb axle on my smaller Starcraft tent trailer. Easy, quick replacement job. Great quality.


First shipment had a poorly assembled RH Brake assembly. After making a call and sending some pics, customer service promptly sent out a replacement. No complaints from me. Manufacturing defects happen. Customer service was awesome!


Product description and dimensions were as described. Easy to install and adjust. Appreciated the labeling of right and left side. Interior packaging of parts was also helpful.

  • Is Dexter Trailer Brake Set part # 23-47-48 part Number 23-47 and 23-48
    The Dexter Trailer Brake Set part # 23-47-48 is just the # 23-47 assembly and the # 23-48 assembly like you stated. Our pricing does fluctuate somewhat and it usually has to do with previous sales and current stock. If I were you I'd go with the part number that gives you the best deal!

  • Can Trailer Brakes be Added to Time Out Motorcycle Trailer
    I wish I could say we've had direct experience adding brakes to your trailer but at this time we have not nor has anyone requested help from us to do so. That said, I am sure we can help add brakes to the trailer but I was not able to find the Time Out brake kit you mentioned so it's harder for me to know exactly what their kit consists of to give you our equivalent.

  • Why Does My 2018 NuCamp TaG XL Outback Have 7" Brakes With 15"Wheels?
    Since the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 2,000 lbs # 23-47-48 is what NuCamp installed on your trailer, it is what you want to use for a replacement on your 2018 NuCamp TaG XL Outback. The size of the brakes used is 100% dependent on the size of your axle, and is dependent on the tire size. However the drums themselves will be rated for up to a specific tire size, as the contact area of the drum to the wheel will only support a wheel so large....

  • Dexter Part Number K23-047-048 vs etrailer Part 23-47-48
    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.

    It appears that your 1999 Forest River Flagstaff 176ED has a 2,000lb axle. This will require the 7" Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-47-48 to replace the electric brake assemblies. You can verify this is the correct kit by measuring the drums on your Flagstaff and verifying the mounting flange dimensions on the axle. The mounting flange will have bolt hole 2-7/8" on center both vertically and horizontally. The inside of the drum will be 7" in diameter. I have included some images...

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Electric Brakes for Jayco Feather Travel Trailer
    In order to find the correct replacement trailer brake assemblies you need to know the axle capacity which is found on the axle tag. The tire size is not really a good indicator of this. It's likely the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-47-48 which is for 2,000 lb axles but it could also be the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-468-469 which is for 3,500 lb axles. Therefore, you'll need to verify the axle capacity or drum size before purchase.

  • 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.

    Yes, the electric drum brake kit part # 23-47-48 is correct for your current hub/drums and would be all you'd need to convert to electric brakes on the trailer. The mounting bracket of this would match up to what you have now and the offset would match as well.

  • 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.

Which are also great, but since they are our brand we are able to offer them at a really hard to beat price.

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.

  • 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.
