I managed to get them on, using new wires from vehicle to brakes and marine grade glued crimp-on connectors near the end of last season. Kept the boat and trailer covered and up against the wall of the house for the winter. But mid summer I hooked up the truck and the brakes did not work. The emergency battery does not charge either when plug is connected. After spending all last summer working on the trailer, I spent this summer working on the boat, and just am not willing to get into why the brakes don't work. Ford F-150 does not match color codes. There should be more information about how to identify proper wires from truck to trailer wires, or what should be hot when. I never found a lead that was always hot, whether the key was in or out or on or off or engine running. But last season, everything worked for state inspection. All I know is it was a real science project last year, one I don't wish to repeat. Maybe it is a fuse on the truck. I don't care this year.


If your trailer brakes are like mine were this is the item for you. I purchased a used excavator and it came with a trailer, well the trailer was thrown into the deal for a reason. All the brakes for both axels had multiple problems, cracked shoes, bad magnets, various rusted parts. After totaling the cost of all the individual items I would need, the cost of a brand new brake kit was only a little more and much more easy to replace, five mounting bolts off five on. I do recommend one thing, in the instructions your given the torque setting for the bolts, so Dexter must feel it's important, so use a torque wrench, rent one if you don't own one.


Installation was relatively simple. Cut the existing electric brake wires and remove the backing plate with shoes assembly. Follow by installing the new brake assembly and connect the electrical wires. We use this trailer often through the spring, summer, and fall to transport our race car, and the brakes have performed flawlessly!


These are the real deal. Original Dexter components. Great quality and fitment. Came with new locknuts for assembly. Easy, do it yourself replacement. My wires were long enough to connect before I placed these on the axle which made it a much easier job than trying to connect the wires with the backing plates installed. These were installed on a Cronkhite 2000 series 12300lb equipment trailer with Dexter 6000lb axles. Exact replacement. Great packaging and very quick delivery from eTrailer.


I received 3 boxes all of which had some sort of damaged or destroyed parts in it. All of the bearing kits are garbage, I will need replacements. The back plate and pad assemblies were ok, only two I had to installed the adjuster bolt back into and inspect for damage, but only received 2 of 4 nut and plug kits seen in pictures attached. Everything was improperly boxed, boxes are way too large for these components and hardware/bearing kits were packaged with very heavy components. Bearing kits should have been shipped separately in a small package. Bearing kit was also not in a proper bag, if not a ziploc at least tape the bag shut. I hope the drums are ok, I will have to grind on 2 of them just to allow the wheel to mate properly. I will have to measure all of the races and drum dimensions to ensure they are not warped or bent in any way. Extremely unhappy with this purchase. What a waste of components.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.


Easy install, good instructions...1 year later and having no problems.


Worked exactly as described, came with all new hardware. Quality A+


Great price on the set of these OEM replacements. I was skeptical that I would be receiving left and right in the set for the posted price. Local trailer parts store was selling a single left or right non-dexter for almost as much.



1 year update, I should have done this sooner. The whole rig stops better as expected, clearly safer. I run the trailer daily with it loaded, and I’m very happy with the reduced wear on my truck’s brakes.


Fit perfect work outstanding! I bought these assemblies because they are Made in the USA. Only way to go.


Got exactly what i ordered in timely fashion makes for quick replacment if the braking system on my trailer.


Parts arrived quickly and were packaged well, came with the nuts to secure the brake plate to the axle. Brakes work as they should, well worth the money.



A year later the trailer still stops great, probably put 8000 miles or better on it. It also runs during the winter in upstate NY, salt is hard on things here. Definitely satisfied with my purchase.


These brake assemblies were an easy replacement for the original brakes on our 1973 Airstream Argosy travel trailer.


Joshua B was very helpful figuring out which hub seal I needed. Both the seals and brake assemblies are good quality and fit correctly. You get what you pay for as the old saying goes.


I have not installed the brakes yet. They came well packed with great instructions. The video on etrailer on how to remove the old and replace with new should make the job easy.


Every thing was great price fit speedy delivery and a great customer service rep who helped me get the right parts the first time. Gwen is my go to person for the right parts. R trailer is great


Wow that was great. 1962 tandem axle was missing shoes and magnets so I ordered the 5 bolt pattern. Perfect fit connected wires, test drove it, perfect!


parts and pricing was fair, had shipping issue on first part of order, (in photo), called to let them know, was no issue and items lost were replaced in a timely manner, will buy from etrailer again, no problem


Super fast shipping as always and always on point!


Quality parts and seals. Good packaging for shipment. Order arrived in four days. Dry satisfied with etrailer.


Customer service was great! Because my parts were back ordered, etrailer thought they could substitute my needed parts. When I was able to look at the parts after ordering, I was able to see that they would not work for my application. Not even ten minutes had passed when I called back to request my original backing plates. To my astonishment, Chelsea told me my order was already boxed and on the truck and it could not be pulled. After telling her the situation, she understood what happened and corrected it! It unfortunately did take a while to get my parts but no fault of hers. Will be using etrailer when ever possible.


Great products, prices and shipping. Customer services are always on point. I placed my order then realized that I forgot additional items. Call on Saturday and spoke with rep - Ofelia. Got the items ordered. Short time frame. Ordered arrived in California in great shape.


Assemblies fit perfectly. Very simple and clean assembly.


These brakes are legendary. We use them on all of the VORSHEER XOC Trailers



Made in the USA! Best brakes in the market today!


Package was delivered in record time. Everything fit, no issues with missing parts. Was complete with a simple installation. Took approximately 1 1/2 per wheel including repacking of wheel bearings.


Thanks to Alex & Kyle S.
Kyle because
he answered my questions on what I needed, however about 3 years ago when I first was going to order parts, Covid hit & put a damper on things. Fast forward today & Alex who helped me find all the parts that I needed. Helpful will continue to help me if needed.
