Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Brakes 23-27 Review

Today we are going to review part number 23-27. This is the Dexter ten-inch electric brake assembly for the right hand side. This electric brake assembly will measure ten inches by 2-1/4 and the way that is measured is the diameter of the shoes across. Its ten inches and the width of the shoe will be 2-1/4. This is passenger side brake assembly, which is the right hand side, and the way you can tell that is the shorter shoe will face the front of the trailer and the longer shoe will face the rear of the trailer. When this assembly is paired with a left hand side assembly, itll be rated for an axle 235 pounds.

You can use a wheel size of 13, 14 or 15 and this brake certainly does have a four bolt-mounting flange as you can see here. It does include the four studs. What you want to do is to make sure it fits your four bolt-mounting flange is if you can measure the distance between the holes. In the case they measure 2-7/8 inches. That is the distance from the center to center of the mounting flange.

This is an electric brake assembly so its not really used for marine applications. There are two wire connections to be made. One is for the brake feed, the other is for the ground and it doesnt matter which wires you use for either connection. Down here is the star wheel, which is used for adjusting the brakes and what you will, is an access hole back here that you pull the plug out. Use a brake-adjusting tool in each end and you will adjust the star wheel for the brakes to go either in or out.

And, this is an electric brake assembly and the way that would work is when power is fed to this magnet, its magnetized and will come out and sticks to the surface, inner surface of the hub and drum assembly, which will in turn pull the brake arm. This arm right here. It will attach and pull it, which will apply the brakes outward to stop the hub and drum. This part does have a limited one-year warranty and that should do it for part number 23-27.

Used these electric brake assemblies to replace the hydraulic units which became useless due to the master cylinder in the coupler becoming rusted and frozen up. Everything about the units was top notch and they bolted directly in place of the hydraulic backing plates. Shipping was fast with detailed follow up provided by Etrailer (probably the best of any internet company I've dealt with.) Packaging was more than enough with more packing material and staples than was really required. ( 15 staples in the box ends alone where 5 would have been more than enough) Unfortunately, the assemblies were "nested" back to front into one another which caused the brake shoe of one unit to cut off the wire leads of the other. "Back to back" or "front to front" would have solved this issue which has happened to other customers. Additionally, the one plate had dust plugs for the brake adjuster provided while the other one had none. Both of these problems were minor but kept the experience from being totally outstanding. 82912

Purchase from etrailer was simple and easy. The product was shipped quickly and the package arrived in fine shape. One of the brake assemblies must have been bumped around pretty good as the adjuster and spring were laying on the packing. A couple of minutes to reassemble the parts and all was good. The product fit as advertised with no problems. Adjustment was simple (follow youtube videos if you've never done this type of work before) and I'm only waiting for a test run in daylight. As for what I liked about the product, they're made in USA and appear to be of superior quality over the OEM Chinese products they replaced. I try to purchase USA-made products when possible and etrailer made the choice simple by listing where this item was manufactured. I also like how etrailer followed up with emails offering help if needed. While I didn't need help, it was a nice touch and I will purchase from etrailer in the future. 234191

Good product, just what I expected. However, be aware that it does not include the nuts for the 4 studs that hold the backing plate to the axle. You'll have to come up with those on your own. 227131

I bought a new car trailer with brakes on only 1 axle. etrailer had the exact same brakes for me to put on the second axle. These drum brakes were really easy to install, wire and adjust / re-adjust. I'd really recommend brakes on both axles if like me you're towing close to 7000lb. I've made a couple emergency stops around town, and didn't have the feeling i was being pushed by the trailer at all. I'd also really recommend getting a high tech brake controller if you're buying one. I had a cheap one that really sucked, i had to constantly readjust brake power every time my speed varied (to stop being pushed by the trailer at speed or jerking to a stop at low speed). Annoying and dangerous IMO. 337010

I ordered a complete brake kit for my 6x10 wells cargo trailer (backing plates wiring, hub assemblies, junction box). The items were not packed well and the brake wire got shredded by the hub assemblies during shipping. A quick call to eTrailer and a replacement cable was sent out right away - great customer service! Installation of this kit was a breeze thanks to the instructional videos available on the eTrailer website. All the items are of excellent quality and everything fit together perfectly. One small wish would be to include the lock washers and nuts (4 per side) that are required to mount the backing plate instead of having to order it a la carte. 189624

Great deal! Only cost a few dollars more to replace the backing plate and components than to purchase new shoes. If you're debating whether to replace just the shoes, or the whole backing plate I'd recommend you replace the whole backing plate. It's far easier (4 nuts vs 3 springs and more), and ensures that everything is in good working order. One caveaut, however: it's not easy to replace backing plates when the nuts are severely rusted (in my case, it took cutting most of them off). FYI, I'm using these with drums marked "8-249-07" NOTE: You'll need (4) 7/16-20 nuts if you're not planning on using the originals. Bolts are included. 30304

Product was as advertised. Form, fit and function were excellant. Assembly was a breeze, especially with the non-polarity of the wires. Just bolt them on, plug them in, adjust them, and go. Recommend buyers also purchase the 4 nuts that hold each backing plate onto the trailer's mounting flange. They do not come with the assemblies, and 7/16 x 20 (fine thread) nuts are getting difficult to come by. I went to my local Lowes to purchase 16 nuts and lock washers for the 4 assemblies I purchased.. They only had 17 nuts in the entire store. 42572

An unbeatable value over buying any single or multiple parts of the brake system for trailers. Everything being assembled and properly lubed by the factory makes this a no-brainer for doing any brake maintenance. Without knowing any of the prior history of the new-to-me trailer, I have more confidence now knowing that I have good brakes backing me up. I would highly recommend this assembly over just getting individual parts. I was also happy to see the "Made in the USA" sticker inside each brake assembly! 41253

The product was as advertised or better and shipping was great. They showed up sooner then I expected and just ahead of a nasty storm with heavy snow and high winds which I was afraid was going to delay the shipment until the following week- Kudos to UPS! Was able to track them all the way. Didnt get any pictures but they were an easy bolt on- much better than replacing the brake shoes and magnet separately. Also you cant beat Dexter Made in the USA quality. Thanks again....Walter Hagen 77056

Purchased this product for one of our customers, who was looking to repair their old trailer, as our company does not carry trailer parts for larger trailers, we searched locally, and were unable to find them availible., We ordered the parts from etrailer on monday, with the help of Marcia, and they arrived on wed. Very helpful phone support, and a very helpful website, the arrived parts were packaged very well and arrived as described. 118583

The magnets on my horse trailer brakes were weak and worn. I found THE ENTIRE BRAKE ASSEMBLY, MAGNET INCLUDED, on etrailer dot com for less than the local RV parts desk wanted for a single magnet! No messing with clips, springs or wire routing. Just R&R four nuts holding the assembly to the spindle, a few flips of the brake adjustment spoon and DONE! Outstanding value! AND... ...the assemblies are MADE IN THE USA! Thanks, etrailer! 17704

Ordered the Decker brake system not knowing if it would work since It was being installed on a 1960's era Hadco axle. The Decker center hole is 3" dis. but they don't tell you that information. With a little clean up if fit my axle perfectly. So am now going to order the left side along with some other items to complete this project. It would have been nice if some wiring information was enclosed. 167325

I have a trailer with older Kelsey-Hayes axles, and was having trouble figuring out what brakes would be suitable replacements. Then I came across e-trailer, and found the info I was looking for. I was more than pleased to find that these Dexter brakes would fit, and the price made the deal even better! Thanks for such great information and service. I will look at e-trailer first for future needs. 81154

10" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - 23-27 is quick and easy to install. saves hours of frustration trying to assemble brake lining and springs. I recommend to buy the brake drum that goes with the brake assembly also. No power tools needed for this job. View the provided on line instruction and viewing the video was very helpful installing this product. Thank ETrailer 184144

Bought several items and the SERVICE and the PRICE were far superior to other Internet sites - and even local RV Centers!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND etrailer and Renee K. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, made good recommendations. My purchases were smooth - and the products were the exact same quality and brand I could buy in Syracuse (at twice the price). 130946

I'm in the middle right now because 2 of the shoes had a fair size piece of the braking pad portion break away from the rest. They were very fast to send replacements so I have nothing but praise for that. I have done business with these people before and have had very fine experiences. I suspect this was just a fluke thing. I will order from here in the future. 295490

I completely rebuilt my trailer. The brake assemblies ordered were easy to install. It was much easier than trying to rebuild my existing brakes. The instructional videos from etrailer.com made the installation of the breakaway kit a breeze. Shipping was upgraded for free and received my order very quickly. It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer.com. 59994

Purchased the entire brake and hub assemblies for about the same price as a brake job at the trailer shop. Shipped quickly...etrailer even upgraded my shipping at N/C. The brake assembly and hubs were simple to install. The brake controller took less than a minute to install. Good prices, great service. Would definitely do business with etrailer again. 33579

Made in the USA. Easily bolted on, but there were no supplied nuts/lock washers and I wish the bolts were a tad bit longer. etrailer prices and shipping were awesome though this order of backing plates/hubs/drums were not packed as well as the others. No worries, it got here without issue and is on trailer about an hour later!. Thanks again etrailer! 41577

Brake assembly went on fine, however I had to go to the local hardware store and buy eight 7/16-20 nuts and lock washers because the kit didn't include the needed hardware to attach them to my axels. The kits I have bought in the past from TSC have always had all the needed hardware. I was disappointed in that fact other than they work fine. 83691

I have a 2001 18' car hauler that came equip with ALKO axles. I was kinda worried that this might not fit being they are made by Dexter. It fit perfectly. Only took about 20 min to get the old set up off and get the new one on. The road test after installation was smooth. I would definitely purchase these for all my trailers. 210857

The brake assembly was identical replacement and was very easy to install. All that's needed is to remove 4 bolts and the 12v brake line. Much easier going this route instead of trying to individually replace the shoes and magnet. This was for my travel trailer camper which has Dexter 3500lb axles. 46791



- 23-27

by: Tom06/02/2015


More than I expected the only thing one might want to consider is when taking the old ones off just order 16 (tandem axle) of the 3/4X20 threaded nuts and just replace them. Will save you a lot of time if the original nuts are rusted. Easier to cut the old ones off with a torch or angle grinder. 199760

Haven't been able to try them out yet, but they installed pretty easily, even for having never dealt with trailer brakes before. The only complaints I have are that the hardware and adjuster hole plugs were not included. Seriously, can't we add a buck on the price and throw them in? 88708

I haven't tried adjusting or using the brakes but they look good. The only problem I had with the installation was the 4 mounting bolts are too short. I had to drive the ones out of the old brake mount. They seated and worked fine on the new ones. 148415

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes
Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • How to Measure to Select the Correct Brake Shoes for a 6,000 lb Dexter Trailer Axle
  • You will need to measure to select the correct brake assemblies for your axles. You need to know that the brake assembly is compatible with the brake mounting flange and with the drum's diameter and depth. I added a photo showing how to measure a hub/drum for you, Typically 6,000 lb Dexter axles have a 5 bolt brake flange, like part # 4-44-1, and utilize 12 x 2 inch brake assemblies, like part # 23-106. The correct brake shoes for these assemblies are part # BP04-150. If you measure...

You will want to tighten the gear so that you cannot turn the wheel, then you will want to back the gear off 10 clicks. This will be the proper adjustment for the brakes and will need to be repeated on each brake assembly of the trailer (see video link). Another adjustment you will want to make is with your brake controller. If your...

  • Replacing Electric Trailer Brake Shoes and Magnets on a 2 Axle Scotty Camper with 4 Bolt Wheel
  • The best way to determine the correct parts for your brake assemblies is to either measure the diameter of the brake drum and the width of the pads on the shoes and determine the manufacturer or to use the inner and outer bearing part numbers and wheel bolt pattern to determine the hub on your trailer. The 8-147 number that you referenced is a casting number that is not related to the actual part number. The # 23-27 brake assembly is for 10 X 2-1/4 inch brake drums. Since your hubs...

  • Replacement Brake Shoes for 10 x 1-3/4-inch Brakes on 22-Foot Travel Trailer with 3500-lb Axles
  • We offer replacement brake shoes for 10 x 1-1/2- and 10 x 2-1/4-inch electric drum brakes but no longer for the 1-3/4-inch width you reference. Dexter part # bp04-065 you referenced is a set of replacement brake shoes for electric trailer brakes normally seen on Dexter 2.8K axles. I was not able to find any brake part with the reference number 1530114. It does sound like an update is in order. If you want to replace your brake assemblies and hubs/drum assemblies you will need to match...

  • Troubleshooting a Dragging Electric Brake on a Trailer
  • It sounds like there is an electrical short on your trailer wiring that is activating your left rear brake assembly and that is why the brake continues to drag and get hot. Since you have swapped the brake assembly out and still had the problem you know the problem is not in the assembly but somewhere else on the trailer wiring. I would start at the wiring near the brake assembly and check for corrosion and loose or exposed wires and fix as necessary. You will want to trace this back...

  • Converting 3500 lb Axle from Idler Hubs to Electric Brakes
  • The brake mounting flanges, whether they be 4 or 5 bolt, have a standard hole spacing to fit their appropriate brake assembly. No worries about the brake assembly matching with the existing one on your axle. A 3500 lb axle like what you have will use a 4 bolt flange. You will need to get the numbers that are stamped on your existing bearings, in order to confirm the fit of the # 84557UC3. Your current bearings will need to match the bearings of the replacement hub. The # 84557UC3 uses...

  • Why are Electric Brakes Getting Hot on 98 Coleman Camper After Installation of New Brake Assemblies
  • It sounds to me as if there is one of three problems going on. The most likely problem is that the brake assembly on the right side is not properly adjusted. There is an access hole in the backing plate to insert a brake adjusting tool through and turn the adjuster in or out to properly adjust the trailer brakes. We have a video on trailer brake installation and at 4 minutes 40 seconds trailer brake adjustment is shown. Tighten up the brakes inside the drum until it stops turning. Then...

  • Tips to Keep a Proportional Brake Controller Level When Installing
  • Electric proportional brake controllers are required to be manually leveled by hand according to the parameters outlined in the installation instructions. Not all brake controllers have the same mounting range so you need to make sure you follow the instructions. One thing proportional brake controllers have in common is that in addition to the specific mounting range, they also cannot be tilted left or right or lean to one side or the other. They need to be mounted in the direction...

  • Replacement Hub/ Drums, Brake Assemblies and Tires for 2003 Trail-Lite Travel Trailer
  • The Hub and Drum assembly you referenced, part # 84546UC3 has the same casting number on it, so it is most likely the correct replacement for you. I would recommend looking at your existing bearings to confirm a match. If the existing bearings you have are # L68149 inner and # L44649 outer, these are the correct replacements. For electric brake assemblies, use # 23-26 for the left side, and # 23-27 for the right. The mounting nuts, # 6-17 and lock washers, # 5-8 are not included....

  • Parts Needed to Install Brakes on a Tandem Trailer with Hayes 3,500 lb Axles
  • You are correct, the # 84 spindle parts do interchange to 3,500 lb Hayes axles, as long as it is not a boat trailer axle, so you can use the Dexter parts on these axles. The spindle and hub parts for this application are standard parts that are still used in production, so they should be around for a long time to come. Of course keeping a record of the parts you use will help with replacement in the future. You could always return to Hayes parts in the future, the only thing to keep...

  • Replacement Bearings and Seals for Hub 8-247 on a 1999 Coleman Pop-up Trailer
  • It sounds like you may have hub # 8-247-50UC3-EZ or similar. This hub takes bearing kit # BK2-100. The inner bearing is L68149 and the outer bearing is L44649. It takes a 10-19 grease seal with 1.719 inch inner diameter. If you can pull a hub and remove the bearings, the bearing numbers are stamped into the metal of the bearings. I have included a link to a video that should help. The brakes for this hub are 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies for 3,500 pound axles. The right hand side would...

  • Should a Trailer Brake Magnet Make Contact with a Drum Even With No Brakes Applied
  • The magnet should only make contact with the inside of the brake drum when power is applied to the magnet. If it is making contact with the drum all the time, you may have residual power running on the brake wire that is just enough to cause the magnet to grab the drum. You will need to check the magnet power wire with a circuit tester, # 3808, to see if there is any power when the brakes are not applied. If there is, there is a short circuit somewhere and you will need to track it down....

  • Replacement 10 Inch 5-on-5 Bolt Pattern Brake Drums for Old Car Trailer
  • I did a Google search on the information you found on your brake drums and wasn't able to find anything conclusive regarding a replacement. We offer one 10 x 2-1/4 inch brake drum with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, part # 84556UC3 for a standard or # 84556UC3-EZ for an EZ-Lube spindle. If your existing hub uses an #L68149 inner and an # L44649 outer wheel bearing, either of these hubs would be compatible. The hubs include the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, wheel bolts and lug nuts. If...

  • Trailer Brakes are Very Weak Even After Adjusting Them
  • Since the trailer was off of the ground it would not take much voltage to stop the wheels from spinning so they may be getting power but they may not be getting enough power due to a short or wiring issue. But 9 times out of 10 weak trailer brakes indicate that the brakes need to be adjusted. Since you adjusted the brakes and that did not help it could be time to replace the shoes. If enough of the pads has worn away they will not be able to adjust out far enough to make good contact...

  • Electric Brake Recommendation for a 1986 Fleetwood Prowler 22 with Tandem Axles
  • To determine the correct brake assembly for your 1986 Fleetwood Prowler 22 with tandem axles, you will need to do some measuring. First measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoe or the inside diameter of the drum, then measure the width of the brake lining. If 10 inches by 2-1/4 inches is correct and you have a 4 bolt mounting pattern, the Dexter Axle Electric Brakes, item # 23-26 and # 23-27, would be the correct fit. You could also use the TruRyde Electric Brake Assemblies,...

  • Do Electric Trailer Brakes Work in Forward and in Reverse
  • Yes, electric brake assemblies will work in reverse. The brake controller in your tow vehicle would still activate in reverse as long as the brakes are applied. The actuating arm of the Dexter assemblies part # 23-27 will apply the brakes when pushed in either direction. That means that in forward or reverse the assemblies will still apply trailer brakes.

  • What is Needed To Install Electric Brakes On A Master Tow Dolly That Doesnt Have Brakes
  • Before installing brakes on your trailer, you will need to know some basic information about your existing trailer. The first thing you will need to find out is if your tow dolly has a brake mounting flange mounted on your existing axle. The brake mounting flange provides a secure attachment point for a brake assembly. If you have a mounting flange, send me a picture or dimensions. See diagram to the right. This will help determine your existing brake mounting flange pattern. If you...

  • How to Pick the Correct Brake Assemblies and Bearings for 2006 Forest River Grand Surveyor Trailer
  • If you have 10 inch brake assemblies currently the # 23-26 and # 23-27 would be the correct assemblies to get. You might measure the bolt assembly that the brake assemblies mount to. The # 23-26 and # 23-27 has bolts holes that are 2-7/8 inches apart on center. Since you are going to have to remove your hub and bearings anyway I would recommend you just remove them now to verify the bearing numbers that you would need, the numbers of the bearings will be stamped on the bearings. If you...

  • Do Electric Trailer Brakes Work in Reverse
  • When the brake magnet is pushed in either direction on the brake assembly (forward or backward), the brake shoes are forced apart which activates the trailer brakes. When pushed backwards the brakes won't apply quite as hard as when going forward, but they still do work. I have had brake assemblies at my desk and wondered the same thing so I pushed the actuating arm forward and backwards and found that either direction causes the shoes to push out.

  • Troubleshooting Low Voltage Output from Brake Controller
  • Something is obviously causing a voltage drop between the brake controller and the trailer connector. The usual culprit in this type of situation is a break in the wire or a corroded wire. Check the wiring under the truck. You should be able to trace the trailer connector wires from the back of the trailer connector up toward the front of the truck. Look for any sections that look like they may have been pinched, frayed or even eaten through. If there are any wires spliced in or quick splices,...

  • Replacement Hub/Drums & Brakes to Replace AL-KO 7230 Hubs
  • You can select your new hubs by matching up your axle weight rating, wheel bolt pattern and the bearings used in your current hubs. Based on my research your hubs are 10 x 2-1/4-inches, are from a 3500-lb axle and have the 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern. If they use inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649 then you can use Dexter hub/drum # 84546UC3. If you have other bearings you can use the linked page to select your axle rating, bolt pattern, bearings to find a matching hub. For brakes...

  • How to Replace Manual Adjusting Trailer Brake Assemblies with Self Adjusting Assemblies

I attached a page that has all of our self adjusting brake assemblies for you to check out once you know those dimensions. To determine the axle capacity you can do it a couple ways. There should be a plate or sticker near the tongue of the trailer that will have the overall trailer capacity as well as axle capacities....

  • Troubleshooting New Trailer Brakes Where One Side of Trailer Brakes Harder than the Other
  • If the adjustment of both brake assemblies are good and you can notice that the one side of the brakes are pulling harder than the other that would lead me to believe that the problem is the grounds of the brake assemblies on the right side of the trailer. A lot of times trailer brakes ground to the frame. I would just run all of the grounds back to the main ground harness of the trailer to see if that fixes the problem. The other problem is that it could be that your brake magnets are...

  • Poor Braking on Jayco 90 Pop-Top Camper Caused By Brake Assemblies on Wrong Sides
  • From what you describe, it sounds like the brake assemblies you have are installed upside down or on the wrong side of the trailer. The magnet should be at the bottom of the brake assembly, as well as the brake adjuster. The semicircular bow that the magnet connects to should be on the side of the brake assembly closest to the front of the trailer, as shown in the photo of the drivers side brake assembly that I have edited for you.

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies For 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Brake Assemblies
  • There are many ways to find out the axle you have on your trailer. The first way is to check the diameter. A 3500 lb axle has a 2-3/8 inch diameter compared to a 1-3/4 inch diameter on a 2000 lb axle or a 3 inch diameter on a 4400, 5200 or 6000 lb axle. Another way to tell is by the bearing size and the seal. Yet another way to narrow it down is by the brake assembly. When you gave the 10 inch assembly, I can narrow it down to a 3500 lb axle or a 4400 lb axle, but you would need to...
