Video Transcript for Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly Installation

Today on our trailer we're going to be installing the Dexter 10 Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies with 3,500 pound axels. For the right hand side it's part number 23-469, and for the left hand side is part number 23-248. We'll also be installing the Dexter Axle Trailer Hub and drum assembly for 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern part number 84656UC3. The insulation is exactly the same whether you're installing on the left hand side or the right hand side. You just need to make sure that you use the proper break assembly for the proper side of the trailer. We'll begin by removing wheel and tire. Next we're going to need to remove the dust cover. We'll then need to remove the cotter pin here. Go ahead and bend the tabs up on the cotter pin. Then we'll pull it out. We'll then remove the castle nut.

Next, we'll go ahead and pull the flat washer and the outer bearing out. Here's the flat washer. Here's the outer bearing. Now we can remove the drum. Go ahead and wipe the grease off the spindle here. The parts that we removed, we're going to need to reuse the castle nut, the flat washer, and the cotter pin.

Depending on how damaged the condition of your cotter pin, you may want to replace that if it's not in very good condition anymore. Next, we'll go ahead and cut the electrical lines that are on the back side of this break assembly. Go ahead and cut them here, right there. Pull the four knots that we'll need to remove in order to remove the old brake assembly. Go ahead and take our breaker bar and socket. Break all four of the nuts loose. With all four nuts removed you can go ahead and slide the brake assembly off of the spindle and flange.

Now we're ready to install our new brake assembly. You'll notice that there is a sticker in here that says right hand. But if for some reason that sticker was not there we could tell that it was a right hand side brake assembly by looking at the shoe. This one here is much longer than this one. You always want to make sure that the shorter shoe goes towards the front of the trailer. You'll also notice that the magnet here will always swing backwards.

That's another way to tell you that you're on the proper side of the trailer. The back side here has the four studs that'll go through the mounting flange as well as two wires that we'll be connecting. Now, we will be reusing the nuts that we took off to pull the old brake assembly off. Now let's go ahead and install a new brake assembly on our spindle and flange. Go ahead and line up the four studs. Now we're going to go ahead and add in some lock washers here, part number 5-8 because they're we're not there previously. But it's a good idea to have them underneath each of the nuts. We'll also be reusing the four nuts that we took off of the old brake assembly. Go ahead and slide our lock washer on. Then we'll put a nut on. Go ahead and repeat this process for the other three studs. Now we'll go ahead and tighten everything down. Next we'll go ahead and strip a little bit of wire back here. This is the wire that runs through the axle. We'll use it to connect to the backside of our brake assembly. When we connect these wires to the two wires on the backside of the brake assembly it doesn't matter which wire goes to which. You can connect either wire to the power or the ground. And we're going to be connecting to the wire that already runs through our axle so our ground is going to be over on the driver's side. We'll be using a butt connector to make this connection here. The blue butt connector that we'll be using is part number DW05744-5. Go ahead and slide the butt connector on and then we'll crimp it down. Now that we have all of our wires crimped down we'll go ahead and take our heat gun and seal them off. You can use a cigarette lighter if you don't have any heat gun, but just be careful and keep the flame moving so that you don't burn the butt connector or melt any of the wires. Next we'll go ahead and add a little electrical tape just to give each of the connections a little more protection. Now we'll go ahead and take our excess wire here. We'll go through this little plastic clip portion, hold it over, push it down into place. This way our excess wire is secure to the back of the brake assembly. Now that we have our passenger side installed, part number 23-469, we'll go ahead and move over to the driver side where we'll repeat the same process for mounting it to the axle, part number 43-468. Now, we've already connected the wires from the passenger's side and they run over through the axle. It doesn't matter which wire we connect to the ground or the positive of the ones that come over, nor from the two green wires that run off the backside of the brake. We'll be using a butt connector to make this connection here. The yellow butt connector that we'll be using is the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector part number DW05745-5. I'll be using a ring terminal and a self-tapping screw to put the ground wire to the frame. The other wire will be tied in with the brake control wire on our trailer. The blue butt connector that we'll be using is the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector part number DW05744-5. Next we're going to need to go ahead and pack our bearings. We'll go ahead and take our bearing here, put a little grease in our palm. We'll go ahead and push down on the bearing forcing the grease through the bearing itself. It looks something like that. We'll continue to work around the bearing forcing grease all the way through. Now we'll go ahead and pack the front bearing or the outer bearing which is the smaller of the two bearings. We'll repeat the same process by forcing the grease through the bearing. We'll go ahead and add a little bit of grease here to our spindle. Now we'll go ahead and take a little bit of grease and put it here on the backside of our drum assembly, right here on the back bearing race. We'll then take our inner bearing. We'll put it into position. The narrower side goes in first. Next we'll need to put in our grease seal on the backside here. Right here is our grease seal. It's down a position like that. We're just going to use a small block of wood to help push the grease seal down into position. Go ahead and take our block of wood and the hammer. We're going to push the seal down so that it's level with the backside of the drum here. We'll go ahead and take the drum and slide it over the spindle and take a little bit more grease and put it in the front side of the drum here. We'll go ahead and take the outer bearing which is, again, the small bearing, putting the smaller side or the narrower width goes in first. We'll then put our flat washer back on that we're reusing from before followed by the castle nut. Because this cotter pin is a little bent up we're going to go ahead and install a new one. Go ahead and drop it down into place. Then we'll take our needle nose and bend it up. Now with our cotter pin bent into position go ahead and wipe off any excess grease. Then we'll need to install our dust cover. Now we're ready to reinstall our wheel. Now we're going to go ahead and check to see if we have the proper adjustment. When you turn the wheel you want to have just a little bit of resistance or a little bit of drag in the brakes which we do. We won't need to make any adjustments because these are Nev-R-Adjust Brakes, you don't set them up like standard electric brakes. You would just adjust the adjuster on the back just enough so that you get a slight drag like we have here. If you didn't have a little bit of resistance as you turn the wheel you would need to make an adjustment. The star adjuster is right in this slot right here. You would take a brake adjustment tool like this or a large flathead screwdriver, and just turn the star gear until you just barely feel some resistance like we have here. Since ours are already set we won't need to do that. That'll do it for the installation of our Dexter 10-inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies for 3,500 pound axles. For the right hand side it's part number 23-469, and for the left hand side it's part number 23-468. .

I purchased 4 of the Nev-R-Just drums for my 1999 enclosed trailer. I had been fighting the elec brakes in that trailer for years, re-wiring the drums and replacing the magnets on some of them. But I just got tired of it and found these had great reviews, are made in the USA and quite reasonably priced. Shipping was super-fast, but I only live a couple of hundred miles from where they shipped. The worst part of the install was getting the old drums off. I think they used some kind of crushed nut type lock nut on them at the factory as they were HARD to turn the whole way out. And I had soaked them with PB Blaster for a couple of days before hand, as well as using WD40 during the extract. I could only get my impact on 1, maybe 2 nuts per wheel because of interference. I had 4 of the studs break loose from the old drums and just start turning. I had to use my die grinder on the brake shoe side to get the assembly off. Quite a job there. But the new stuff bolted up nicely. I soldered all the wires, used heat shrink tubing and the split loom tubing on top of that. So a nice, clean install that will hopefully last for years. I've towed the trailer once since the install and the difference is very clear. So nice to have all 4 brakes working well again. Only gave it 4 out of 5 for two reasons. First is the test of time. I think these will last for years, based on the reviews, but only time can determine that. Second is the lack of includes. I did see from the reviews I needed to order the nuts and lock washers, but missed that I'd need the rubber plugs for the adjuster holes on the back. These have two of those holes per drum where my old ones only had one. So I ended up 4 short and am now searching for them. It would be nice if they added $2-3 per wheel and just included that stuff. 117736

I agree.. why would we not need nuts,washers n plugs... thought that was not right to leave out..spent more time acquiring nuts than doing the installation...cheap...

This is the exact brake assembly that came on my trailer when it was new (18ft aluminum car hauler by R and R Trailers of Three Rivers MI) . Same part from the same manufacturer. I purchased 4 new ones because after 3 years of non-marine use, one of the brake linings came off and locked up one of the trailer wheels causing it to flat spot one of the tires bad enough to require the tire's replacement. Shipping: I received them very quickly. But of the 4 assemblies ordered, 2 of them had damaged wiring due to poor packaging by the seller. I considered sending them back, but because I needed to use the trailer soon, I simply repaired the damaged wires and installed them. Removal: This is not easy or fun. Each of the brake assemblies is held on with 4 mounting studs and nuts. These nuts are 7/16-20 i.e fine thread, which are not included. This wasn't really a problem except that these nuts were not in stock at my local Home Depot, Lowe's, or Tractor Supply. After driving all over the place looking for the mounting nuts, I finally found them at Fastenal. Removing the existing brakes was a nightmare. After soaking the existing mounting nuts in PB Blaster, I tried to remove them to find that they were so difficult to get off that they actually caused the studs to break free from where they had been pressed into the backing plate and just spin freely. Of the 16 mounting studs (4 studs x 4 brake assemblies) only 3 of them actually came off and the rest had to be cut off. This pretty much took all day to accomplish. Again, the existing trailer brakes were the *identical* brake assemblies that I purchased, but with 3 years of highway use. I would expect this much difficulty if it was on a boat trailer due to the regular submersion in water, but I would expect less corrosion on a car hauler. Installation: Once I had cut off the existing brake assemblies, Installation was not very difficult. Before I mounted them, I took them down to my local welder and had him tack weld the studs in place so that they wouldn't break free from the backing plate when/if I ever needed to remove these again. I anti-seized the studs and mounted them to the trailer & connected the wiring. I had to reuse the star wheel access port plugs because they did not come with new plugs. I think this is an ok product considering that these brake assemblies adjust themselves as the shoes wear down, and I find this greatly superior to the other method of having to adjust them yourself. I would actually still consider purchasing these brakes again, even after all that. My complaints are as follows: - shoe failure after 3 years of highway use resulting in tire failure - damaged wiring due to poor packaging - lack of mounting nuts and the difficulty in finding new ones - lack of new access port plugs, - *especially* the poor quality of the backing plate and studs A product with a "made in USA" label just shouldn't have this many issues with it. 233921

Last Saturday, after several weeks of research, my wife and I purchased a trailer. It had everything we wanted except for brakes. I asked the dealer if they could install brakes, he said it would take weeks if not longer for him to get the parts and then he would have to arrange for them to be installed. I told the dealer that I had already done some preliminary research on eTrailer.com for brake parts. On a long shot, I asked the dealer if he could beat eTrailer.com prices for the brake parts and if so I would install. To the dealer's credit, he told me I would be much better off getting the brake parts I needed on my own. So, late Sunday evening I went onto the eTrailer.com website. After taking a couple of measurements to ensure I was ordering the correct parts, I placed the order. Their website is user friendly and intuitive, and the tutorial videos are excellent. Early Monday morning I got a message from one of eTrailer's employees notifying me that my parts had shipped. He also offered his services if I needed anything further or if I had any questions. I did have questions, so I called him, I wanted to confirm that I had ordered the correct bolt pattern for the hub/drums. Within a couple of minutes we confirmed that I had taken the correct measurements. The reassuring part was, he said if you find the hub/drums are not the correct ones, let me know and we will get a return label out to you and get the correct parts out to you. By early Thursday afternoon the parts had arrived. I had already watched the installation tutorial video that is on their website. Following the video process, the install was straight forward and PAINLESS. This company is so refreshing! 316823

Thanks for the follow up. For almost 10 years now, I have been very happy with the service, products and value that I get from etrailer. So much so, that I refer friends and family to your website as their needs arise. As the mechanic in the family, and around the neighborhood, I often have people approach me for help. Several times a year I find myself referencing etrailers website to find a part we need or that will make a job easier to complete. Additionally, I CANT SAY ENOUGH how helpful etrailers on line video library has been with installations and to help answer questions or trouble shoot problems. I really appreciate that etrailer would take the time and resources to build such a library to help their customers.

Heads up!! ordered 4 sets of hub, drums and brakes over two years ago for a project I've been slowly working on. when I received the items, I noticed the packaging was damaged and reported it to etrailer. 2 years later, I finally went to use the items and discovered the bearings, caps and races had been damaged. I notified the management at etrailer and within a week had complete replacements. What company in this day and age is willing to stand behind a damage claim two years on? Truly remarkable customer service and willingness to go the extra mile. etrailer, You've won me forever as a devoted and satisfied customer. you guys are rock stars! Thank You. 397041

I have been using these brakes for one year, about 3000 miles. Very happy with the quality and price. These are the OEM Dexter brakes for the 3500 lb axle. These were very easy to install and were an exact fit. Nice feature is the auto adjust when the trailer is backing up. No more lifting the axle and climbing underneath to make sure breaks are properly adjusted. 387907

Generally speaking the product seems like a good buy. I looked at the different options at Etrailer and decided on the Dexter units even though they were slightly higher - made in USA. My package of parts arrived 3 days after ordering - a good deal considering the freight cost was $0. One of the brake assemblies had the self adjuster knocked halfway of in spite of the stiff spring hold it together to the shoes. I suspect this happened during shipment and due to bulk packing the 4 assemblies in a box. I would suggest that Etrailer warn their customers to look at their parts carefully upon receipt. I also was concerned about one of the 7/16" mounting studs being knocked out. I found the stud in the carton and reset it into the backing plate and did not have any issues in the installation. All in all the process went well from ordering to installation. I appreciated all of the helpful videos on line that helped with the ordering process and gave me a heads up on making sure to order nuts, washers and plugs for the adjusting ports. I would have given the review a 5 except for the packaging which could stand a little improvement. 344669

  • Replacement Hubs and Brake Assemblies for 2006 Haulmark Thrifty Hauler
  • Since we know you have a Dexter 3,500 lb axle on your trailer the Hub part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is going to fit and work well for you. I would go ahead and replace all of the hub drums now unless you are on a super tight budget. Having everything new on the trailer will give you added peace of mind. The self adjusting brake assemblies part # 23-469 would be correct for the right hand side and then part # 23-468 for the left hand side would be correct as well. These components and the other...

  • Do Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies Make Noise When Activated
  • When trailer drum brakes are activated you should be able to hear a humming sound. I am not quite sure I would describe it as musical, but it sounds like they are functioning on your trailer. Have you tried testing the brakes to see if they function properly? Most likely they will work fine. You should also note that these are self-adjusting brake assemblies so at first they may not seem to powerful, but with every brake application they should get slightly stronger until they are fully...

  • Parts Needed to Replace Hydraulic Drum Trailer Brakes with Electric Drum Trailer Brakes
  • The 10x2-3/4 measurement on brakes is in reference to what drums they fit, not the mounting pattern. The 2-3/4 inch measurement you are getting is indicative of 10x2-1/4 inch brakes like # K23-478-00 that you have referenced. To measure for the size brake assembly you need you will measure the inner diameter of the drum and the width (both where the shoes/linings make contact with the drum). The matching right hand side brake assembly is # K23-479-00. But if you have 3,500 pound axles...

  • Smallest Rim and Tire Combo to Use with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR3500S06
  • As long as I am understanding you correctly I believe I have a solution for you. Sounds like you want to use the smallest overall size wheel and tire you can fit on the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR3500S06. What really matters is overall wheel size and not just rim size so bear with me since there are no 10 inch rim options that would work for you. A 13 inch wheel is the smallest you can go with that will allow everything to work. For that I would recommend the wheel and...

  • Axle and Brake Compatibilty for a UTV Trailer
  • Dexter is one of the largest suppliers of OEM trailer axles, suspensions, and hubs. Their parts, including brakes, are available across the country. Since we do not carry the Rockwell American brand, I am unfamiliar with their products and can not speak for their availability. When it comes to adding brakes to a Dexter axle, you would just need the left and right brake assemblies and the hub/drum assemblies. For the brakes, I recommend the Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, left...

  • Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes for Snowmobile Trailer
  • To determine the correct replacement electric brakes you will need to know the weight capacity of your axle and then measure the inside diameter and width where the pads from the brakes touch. If your axles are 3500 lbs and you get 10 inches by 2-1/4 inches AND the brake mounting flange has a 4 bolt pattern then assembly # 23-469 for the right and # 23-468 for the left will fit. The best brake assemblies as far as resisting corrosion due to moisture are hydraulic brakes, which are used...

  • Self Adjusting Brake Assemblies for Dexter Axle
  • I spoke with my contact at Dexter and the 10" Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, # 23-26, can replace a hub which uses part K71-047-00 is for manual adjust shoes. In order to replace manual adjust shoes with the self-aligning, you would instead need to replace the brake assemblies. For this you will need, 10" Nev-R-Adjust Left Hand Electric Brake Assembly, # 23-468 and 10" Nev-R-Adjust Right Hand Electric Brake Assembly, # 23-469. We do offer another brand that is also compatible with...

  • How to Disengage Electric Boat Trailer Brakes for Backing Up Trailer with 2011 Mercedes-Benz ML-350
  • If your boat trailer uses electric brakes such as # 23-469 it is a good idea to unplug the trailer connector from the ML-350 before you back the trailer up to launch your boat. Boat trailers are more and more often being fitted with electric brakes since they are less expensive than hydraulic brakes, but just the same electricity and water are not the best of friends. You can also simply unplug your trailer brake controller or turn its power setting down to zero when you need to back...

  • Replacement Brakes For 2000 Coleman Utah Pop-Up Camper
  • You did not say whether you have electric or hydraulic brakes on your 2000 Coleman Utah camper. You will need to know a few details when choosing replacement brake assemblies. There should be a plate or sticker on the axle with the weight rating. You will need both the left and right brakes that match the brakes you currently have. You will need to know the diameter and width of the brakes, and the mounting bolt pattern. I have attached a link to the 10-inch brakes you can check out. We...

  • Are New Brake Drums Required if Replacing Electric Brake Assemblies on a Trailer
  • If you already have brake drums you will not have to replace them unless they are damaged or became overheated and have discoloration on the inside armature surface where the magnet rides, grooves in the armature surface, or severe wear where the pads ride. If the drums are in good shape there really isn't a benefit to getting new ones when you replace the brakes. Speaking of the brakes if you are looking for 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies I recommend our brand # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left...

  • Accomplishing Initial Adjustment of Nev-R-Adjust Brake Assemblies
  • Getting the Nev-r-adjust assembly initially set can be a bit challenging. I would recommend bolting the assembly in place and rotating the adjuster from the front before installing the hub. You can keep moving the shoes outward, until you can barely slip the drum into place. This will get you pretty close to the initial adjustment needed. If you need to make an additional fine adjustment one way or the other, you can force your brake adjustment tool in from behind the assembly past the...

  • Replacement Electric Brake and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Use with Al-Ko 2800-lb Axle
  • The Dexter 10-Inch Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly for 3.5K Axles, parts # 23-469 (right) and # 23-468 (left) will work with a 2800-lb axle as long as it has the same 4-bolt mounting pattern (holes that are 2-7/8-inches apart on center).

We do offer lug nut caps but only for large dually wheels.

  • Troubleshooting Removing Trailer Brake Assemblies and the Studs Just Spin
  • Your old assemblies could possibly have nuts on the inside of them for the studs to attach to. You are going to need to access the other side of the assembly to see what holds the studs to them. If it is a broken stud without a bolt head to grab onto and the stud is basically just spinning with the nut on the other side you would either need to try and prevent the stud from spinning with like a set of vice-grips or worst possible scenario grind the studs off from the back of the assembly...

  • Right-hand Electric Drum Brake assembly For Trail-Lite Bantam Travel Trailer
  • The right-hand electric drum brakes we offer for 3500-lb axles are the 10 x 2-1/4-inch size. These are offered in manual-and self-adjust types that can be seen on the linked page. For example, for a self-adjusting right brake you can use Dexter # AKEBRK-35R-SA or part # AKEBRK-35R for a manual adjust brake. These fit a 4-bolt brake flange with holes spaced 2-7/8-inches on center. Your axle should have a sticker indicating its weight rating. You'll want to ensure you know the capacity...

  • Axle-Less Suspension And Electric Brake For Trailer
  • I see that you referenced part # ASR5200S01, a 5200 lb axle-less system for your trailer. The Axle-Less systems we offer have bolt patterns of either 5 on 4-1/2 or 4 on 4. We do not currently carry any axle-less systems that have a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern with that weight capacity. I spoke with my contact at Timbren and they told me they do not offer the 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. I have attached a help article that shows how to measure the bolt pattern of a wheel.

There isn't an option for converting the TruRyde brake assemblies.

  • Will Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies # 23-468 & # 23-469 Work w/ Axeltek Brake Drums

  • Recommended Trailer Brakes for 2006 Bigfoot 21 FT Travel Trailer
  • From the research that I have done it looks like a 21 ft Bigfoot is going to weigh about 4000 lbs so I am going to assume that it has 4400 lb axles. Since there is a very good chance that it has the 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake assemblies, you could use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assemblies, # K23-478-00 for left hand and # K23-479-00 for right hand. Unfortunately a collective OEM trailer parts catalog does not exist, so the best way to determine what parts you will need...

  • 10 inch Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 1969 Kit Companion Travel Trailer
  • Do the 10 inch brake assemblies on your trailer attach with 4 mounting studs? If so, then you have standard 10 inch brake assemblies and the part # 23-468 for the left side and part # 23-469 for the right hand side would fit your trailer.
