Self-Adjusting Brakes Don't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on these brake assemblies is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.


The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

Product came today. Packaging was great. Wish i didn't miss the mounting hardware kit for the electric brake kit. Will be installing this weekend on my trailer I am restoring.

After about a year of having these, I can only give them 3 stars. They do self adjust, and I admit I LOVE that. That's why I bought them, so that I wouldn't have to keep climbing under the trailer to adjust the brakes. However, these have not eliminated that hassle for me...hence the 3 stars. They self adjust so well that I've had to get under the trailer and back them off TWICE in the last year. They get the brakes so tight that any input from the brake controller would lock up the wheels. I literally had to turn off the brakes to keep them from locking up. I was seriously considering putting these on my other trailers, but not now. I spend more time under my trailer now, than I did before the purchase. I don't have enough time to do that with all 3 of my trailers.


Comments
Well, Ive put about 2,000 miles on them this year, BUT, I can say I have not had any further issues. The seem to be performing well, and have needed any more adjustment. I guess they need the initial adjustments to be a little lose.

I needed to upgrade the brake system on my boat trailer. I found the company that made the surge brakes had gone out of business. I found etrailer and bought everything I needed to convert to electric brakes. The pieces arrived quickly with great instructions, everything fit as it was supposed to, and the whole system works beautifully. Great company to work with. A+ in my book.

After a year of use i have nothing but good to say about the entire set up. Works well every time.

I purchased two sets of these self adjusting brakes for my travel trailer to replace the brakes on all four wheels. The install was straight forward, no problems doing it and I repacked the wheel bearings while I had it apart. As of one year later, I'm completely satisfied with these brakes. No more need to jack up the trailer and lay under it to adjust the brakes. The brakes stop evenly and smoothly. I'm glad I bought these, it was a good upgrade and I anticipate they should last for many more years.

Fairly easy installation although not quite as easy as the video makes it look. I'm sure it will differ depending on the trailer, my camper's suspension arrangement made it necessary to use a box end wrench (vs a socket and ratchet) on three of the four nuts. If you have the ratcheting type box ends (I do not) then it should be a piece of cake. One word of caution, if you are replacing non-self adjusting style brakes where you can easily turn the adjusting screw in either direction, you will find that trying to loosen the adjusting screw after installing on the trailer is pretty difficult unless you have the trailer on a lift or are a contortionist. There is a spring operated piece on the self adjusting brakes that purposely prevents the screw from turning in the "loose" direction. After installing the first brake and realizing I could not contort myself under the trailer so that I could manipulate the screw to the "loose" direction I removed the assembly and loosed it some. I did the same on the other side before installation. Once installed you can tighten the screw a click at a time to get where you need to be. I'd assume the self adjusting feature would then go into action if the brakes were not applying enough pressure.

Situation: This was an upgrade to my 2015 Suretrac 5x8 square tube single axle utility trailer. The trailer was not equipped with them when I purchased it. I quickly realized after two trips with a full load that they would easily improve safety. My tow vehicle came equipped with an integrated brake controller as well as a 7 way rv plug. I performed this installation with the trailer raised up an only a inch or two, resting on safety stands. !! Of course, a lift would make this operation go much easier. !! Installation: THE etrailer parts were easy to assemble. All fit perfectly together. Obviously I did have to adjust the brakes a small amount to get them within the activation reach. Consideration: 1) To insure correct wiring it required extra patience and planning. I found the information regarding what wire activated what to be a bit confusing online. Using an inexpensive test light proved extremely helpful. For me it helped to determine from the start each connection point and color code that were meant for each other (in my situation changes in coding took place). To make it go smoothly I drew our a schematic before getting settled underneath. Note: that I have included images of the old flat plug wiring along with the coding. 2) If I were to do this again, I WOULD HAVE spliced the wiring to both L & R brakes before hand. Lying flat on my stomach underneath the trailer and trying to both properly strip and crimp the short pieces of wire from each brake to the 12 gauge lengths of wire was a little tedious. *Parts list from etrailer: (QTY) (1) ET7WK Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit (2) AKHD-545-35-K Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 (1) AKEBRK-35-SA Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs (1) BRKH10B Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies *Additional wiring (below), ties, a few screws, electrical tape, extra crimps and stud crimps, etc. were locally sourced for connecting from the box upgrade kit to both L&R brakes. (1) 12ft section of white 12 gauge (1) 12ft section of black 12 gauge *Additional grease, both tube and tub type were purchased along with large rubber gloves for greasing and hub installation. NOTE: at this date I have NOT yet driven the trailer with the brakes. I had only tested them by hand spinning each wheel while having someone actuate the [trailer brakes only] from the vehicle.

My trailer brakes were weak, so I checked them out... 3 of the 4 sets had linings that had come of the shoes. I started checking prices on replacement parts, but found the price of an entire assembly cheaper than a few parts. Called etrailer and spoke with Ashley to confirm part numbers and availability. Ordered a set of 4 complete brake assemblies for my trailer. The parts arrived within a few days. I replaced all 4 sets in about an hour and 15 minutes! Completely straight forward process! An impact wrench will help remove the 4 nuts from old assembly. My trailer now has brakes again!! Thanks to Ashley and etrailer for good prices, good information, quick shipping, and great replacement parts! Pictures show a lining off my original brakes; one new assembly; one new assembly installed; and finally both assemblies installed on one side of my trailer.

They do not auto adjust like I thought they would according to the description, I eventually had to manually adjust them, and on one side the manual adjuster is messed up and pops out when I adjust the wheel adjustment. The brakes do work and aid in stopping as expected, and appear to be made well. Just didn’t exchange the bad side because of return shipping cost, trailer is just used occasionally.


Comments
Thank you for your review. Self-adjusting brakes will sometimes require manual adjustment initially. After the initial adjustment, you shouldnt need to adjust them again. You want your brakes to have a slight drag to them when you spin your wheel freely.

The reason that I gave this product an average rating is because of the not being able to do the installation adjustment when removing the rubber boot at the bottom of the backing plate and adjust the brake shoes with a spanner wrench. Everything is there to do it but nothing lines up. Having to remove the tire and the drum to adjust the breaks is next to ridiculous.

I would give this product a much better review but I ordered two sets for my double axle trailer and one of the four brake assemblies were wrong. I was in a time crunch and needed the right part ASAP and customer service said I had to pay for expedited shipping even though it was their fault for the wrong item. Therefore, I had to pay a much higher price at a local dealership for the right part. After looking at other customer reviews this is not the first and only incident on receiving wrong parts. etrailer.com was willing to exchange the part for the right one but not fast enough for my needs, so they were willing to fix their mistake but not make the situation right.

Im running these on a double axle boat trailer roughly 5,000lbs and after one full season they have been great. For the price you cant beat what you get. Easy to install, seem to be holding up well, have been in/out of the water. My only advice is I only put these on one axle (the front) I understood and did not expect them to stop that load and the towing vehicle alone, however if I were to do it again, or when i replace these, I will either go up one size or put them on both axles. Always better to over do it than max out your controller. No fault of anyone, these are great, and come time to replace I will buy them again.

etrailer carried the products necessary for me to replace the brake assembly and drums on my RPod travel trailer. The second shipment of tires and wheels has been delayed with an arrival date that we would not be home necessitating a call to etrailer to change. Leslie was able to make a delivery adjustment for this shipment. I would recommend this company for its products, shipments and costumer services.

Self adjusting trailer brakes12 V may seem loose when you first installed them in my experience I would not try to tighten them from the beginning using the mechanical star adjustment. Let the trailer adjust the brakes as you drive and apply the brake pedal. It will take a little while but they should adjust just fine. If you tried to adjust manually, they could lock up and it’s next to impossible to loosen them again. If you do adjust them manually, be very careful and only tighten a little.

I added these brakes to the second axle of my tandem-axle trailer to compensate for a very poor quality set from another supplier. The difference in performance is like night and day.

I installed these a year ago and they worked good. This year I took my camper on the first trip and one wheel was locking up on the way home. I couldn't turn that wheel by hand. I removed the self adjusters and adjusted them manually. If I had to do it again I would not buy the self adjusting. Luckily I was close to home when it happened.

  • Choosing the Correct 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Electric Brakes
    The brakes need to fit the axle. Or more specifically the hubs and the brake mounting flanges on the axle. One thing that may be confusing you is that brake assemblies for 4,400 pound axles and those for 3,500 pound axles are both 10 x 2-1/4 inches. The difference will be the brake mounting flange bolt hole pattern. If your axle is a indeed a 3,500 pound axle # AKEBRK-35-SA will work for you. The mounting bolts are included but you need part # BRKH10B for the nuts and lock washers. If...

  • Why is 10 or 12 Gauge Wire Recommended for Electric Brake Assemblies
    The reason that 10 Gauge # 10-1-1 or 12 Gauge # 12-1-1 wire is recommended for 10" brake assemblies, like part # AKEBRK-35-SA, is because they pull more power than the lights on your trailer. I believe the green wire you are referring to carries the right turn/stop lighting functions as you can see from the attached photo of a trailer side 4-Way. The 14 and 16 gauge wires are too small for the amount of power needing to get to the brake assemblies and they could potentially get too hot,...

    The tags and labels on axles tend to fall off and or fade over time, so now worries there. With the brake measuring 10 x 2 1/4, you most likely do have a 3,500 pound axle as it is the most common. Especially with the mounting bolts being evenly spaced. That being said, from center to center, you should be measuring 2 7/8 inches exactly, so you may want to double check that. One other way to confirm would be to measure diagonally from center from one bolt to the center of another bolt. This...

  • Best Option To Replace 10 Inch x 1-3/4 Inch AL-KO Braking Assemblies
    It is very possible to upgrade from 10 x 1-3/4" to 10 x 2-1/4" braking assemblies. The brake mounting flange will be the same standard four bolt pattern for both of these options which means everything would be a direct bolt-on swap but the downside of this is that you must also replace the hub/drum as well since the braking assemblies are different sizes. The Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA paired with the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is what I recommend...

  • Determining Correct Bearing Kit For 2017 Forest River R-Pod 176 Travel Trailer
    I would be happy to help you find the correct bearing kit for your 2017 Forest River R-pod 176 Travel Trailer, but unfortunately we do not have a break down of the specific components your trailer uses. Instead what you will need to do is remove one of your current hubs and look for the bearing number stamped in the face of both the inner and outer bearings as shown in the included picture of the # L44649. If the bearing numbers are worn to the point that you cannot read them you...

  • How to Repair Sheared Brake Wires on Magnet of AxleTek 10 Brake Assembly
    As long as there is still a bit of wire still attached to the brake magnet on your # AKEBRK-35-SA, you can use a butt connector like the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector # DW05745-5 to connect a jumper wire from the sheared off end to the brake wire on your trailer. Brake wires are typically 12 gauge wire and if you need a jacketed 12 gauge 2 wire you can use the # 12-2-1 which is sold by the foot and has the positive and negative wire jacketed together. If the wire has been completely...

  • How to Determine Correct Electric Trailer Brake Size
    We don't have any way of knowing the brakes you need for your Shorelander boat trailer but can tell you how to determine the right ones. To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your trailer, you need to know your axle's weight capacity, your mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your drum. For example, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA are for 3,500 lb axles, measure 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide (so that is the drum size they fit in) and...

  • Will Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA Fit 10 inch Drums
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA will fit your 10 inch hub/drums. Now if your 10 inch drums are already fitting well behind a 13 inch wheel then this would not affect it in any way.

  • Parts Needed To Add Electric Brakes To Trailer With Lippert 3500 Lb Axle
    The first thing to check when adding electric brakes to the 5x8 enclosed trailer is to check for brake flanges on the spindle. I have attached a photo of what that looks like. If you do not have brake flanges you will need to have a professional weld on flanges like part # 4-35 which is designed for a 2-3/8" round axle. Then you will need 10" brake assemblies for the 3500 lb axle, for that I recommend part # AKEBRK-35-SA. You will also need a hub-and-drum assembly but I would need to...

  • Trailer Brakes Not Working After Replacing Brake Shoes
    If the brakes are not stopping your trailer after replacing the shoes, I recommend first checking that the brake assemblies are properly grounded. It's possible that while replacing the parts on your brakes, the ground for the magnets were loosened. A weak or bad ground will lead to the brakes not working on your trailer. Next, I recommend adjusting the brakes if you have not already done so since replacing the brake shoes. Just tighten them until you can no longer turn the assemblies...

  • Are the etrailer or Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kits for 3,500 Lb Axles Rated for Marine Use
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA and Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-468-469 are both rated for use in marine applications so you will have no issues.
