I bought these to add brakes to an enclosed trailer that had none.. Everything fit perfectly. Hardest part of the retrofit was finding a decent chassis ground. Magnets are quite noisy as they wear in. Only have about 150 miles on them so far so I anticipate them getting quieter with more miles.

etrailer.com staff were very helpful. My orders were shipped almost immediately and were delivered across country in a week. I am very happy with their customer service.

What great replacement brakes! Super easy to install - even for a NON- mechanic. Delivery was ahead of the projected time, everything was just perfect. Thank you Chris for your great help!!

I got these last year and just now installed them. Great price, easy to install and adjust. Tested them out today and work great. Thanks again etrailer.com

- K23-472-473-00

All I can say at this time is how impressed I am with how easy it was to get a good product the Dexter Electric trailer brake kit from etrailor.com and how fast they where in getting my purchase to my house. They informed of when they shipped my product, and how to follow my purchase on line. I have yet to have pictures of my all new brake kits installed but I can say I am looking forward to getting my trailer back on the road.

- K23-472-473-00

The product worked as expected. Shipping on the other hand was a night mare but etrailer.com staff worked hard to resolve the problem

- K23-472-473-00

The process for ordering was made very easy with the help of Bryan ( I believe) was his name. I was told the items would arrive today and like clock work they arrived. I was free to start the replacement and with in 2 hours both brake assemblies were on the travel trailer. Because I have endless tools, I had everything including heat shrink to install over sliced wire to break magnets. I only needed to look up the process for re-adjusting the new drakes. The whole process from calling etrailer to receiving and installing the brakes was so great.

- K23-472-473-00

The right thing, and the fastest delivery I’ve ever been a party to.

Brakes are still working.

  • Replacing AL-KO 10" x 1-3/4" Electric Trailer Brakes 2018 Airliner Classic Camper
    I must recommend that you replace the hub/drum as well when changing the size of your braking assemblies because the surface area on the old drums may not line up with the new braking assemblies which is why I recommend replacing both at the same time. The 10" x 1-1/2" braking assemblies part # K23-472-473-00 will use the same four bolt brake mounting flange as the 10" x 1-3/4" braking assemblies you have but the hub/drum that goes with these, part # 008-418-02 uses a LM67048 inner bearing...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for Trailer with 3,000 lb Axle
    If you need new brake assemblies for your 3,000 lb axle your best option is to stick with the size you have and use the part number # K23-472-473-00 for a replacement. The temptation is to use more powerful brake assemblies which would give impression that they'd have more braking power but it does not work like that. Instead when you do this it gets much harder to get proper brake application as basically it'll seem like they want to either lock up or not work at all.

  • What Size Braking Assembly Does a 3,000 Lb Trailer Axle Use
    The overall width of the drum would be around a 1/2" wider than the shoes on the backing plate but this will not be relevant when selecting replacements as the parts will be based on the dimensions of the backing plate which in your case is 10" x 1-1/2". Most 3,000 lb trailer axles use a 10" x 1-1/2" braking assembly with a 4 bolt brake mounting flange like part # K23-472-473-00. In order to confirm this for you I would need you to provide me with the part number off of your trailer...

  • Can Trailer Brakes be Used if they are Rated Higher than the Axle
    Assuming the brakes used will fit the trailer the only issue you might run into when using brakes rated higher than the axle capacity is they may be too aggressive. However this can be overcome by adjusting the brakes themselves and/or turning down the power output on a brake controller (for electric brakes).

  • Solution for Needing Replacement Brake Shoes for 10 inch by 1-1/2 inch Diameter
    Instead of just doing brake shoes I would recommend replacing the entire assemblies. Typically brake shoes cost close enough to new assemblies it's better to replace them as a whole. Often times if the shoes are worn the assemblies are most likely not in the best shape either so it's better to get all new parts, plus it's a much easier install and for picking out the suitable replacement. We have one set of trailer brake assemblies that are for a 10 inch by 1-1/2 inch application like...

    The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # K23-472-473-00 are 10 x 1-1/2 brake assemblies that fit your 008-418-02 hubs, but those particular hubs are not available as replacements. If you sent me both the inner and outer bearing numbers from your current hubs as well as your bolt pattern, I may be able to find you a hub and drum along with a brake assembly that will work.

  • Ways to Determine Trailer Axle Capacity
    If your trailer is rated at 5,200 lbs most likely you have axles that are rated less than that individually. Typically on the VIN plate of the trailer the axle capacities will be listed. Common axle capacities are 5,200 lb, 3,500 lb, and 2,200 lb so most likely you probably have 3,500. But you can also measure the diameter of them too to determine this. - 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2 inch - 1-3/4 inch diameter - 3,500-lb Axles: 2-3/8 inch diameter - 5,200-lb - 7,200-lb Axles:...

  • Replacement Brakes for Unknown Dexter Axle on 1987 Fleetwood 5th Wheel Trailer
    For your braking assembly you will simply need to measure your hub diameter or the backing plate on your brake assembly and the thickness of your hubs. You will either need the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,000 lbs # K23-472-473-00 that are 10 x 1-1/2 inches or the wider brake shoe assemblies # 23-468-469 that are 10 x 2-1/4 inches.

    Thank you for all of the detailed information about your current brake and drum assembly! The information makes it much easier for me to recommend the correct replacement parts for your RV trailer. Since the hub and drum assembly for your RV uses unique bearings the only way to upgrade to 10"x2 1/4" brake assemblies is to replace your axle, so I recommend staying with 10"x1 1/2" brake assemblies that fit the correct replacement hub and drum assembly.

  • Parts Needed to Add Brakes to An AL-KO Axle on 2010 Homesteader Patriot Enclosed Trailer
    In order to determine which brakes and hub/drum assembly you'll be able to use on your AlKo axle, you'll need to know a little bit more information. I'll also add that while your trailer may have a 2990 GVWR, the axle might be rated higher than that; I recommend checking the plate/sticker in the center of your axle to verify the GVWR on the axle. You'll want to start by making sure that your current axle has a brake mounting flange on it; if you don't have a brake mounting flange you...

    Thanks for that information and because of your unique bearings combination there isn't a way to get larger replacement hubs alone. So to go from your 10 x 1-1/2 hubs to the larger 10 x 2-1/4 inch hubs you would need to replace your axle. In order to choose the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center as in the diagram I have added; the other thing you need to know is...

  • Parts Needed To Replace Hydraulic Braking System On Boat Trailer
    Hydraulic systems are preferred on boat trailers because water and electricity do not mix well. The hydraulic surge brake system is self contained on the trailer and the only connection to the vehicle is the reverse lockout switch that is powered through the trailer connector. This switch keeps the surge coupler from locking the brakes on the trailer when you are backing up. I know that you told me that your boat weighs 6k, however I need your help to identify the axle so we can select...
