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.

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Brakes AKEBRK-7-SA Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 12-inch Electric Self-adjusting Trailer Brake Assembly Kit, includes the left-hand and right-hand side brake assemblies and they fit 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles. Electric brakes are easier to install. They offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Basically they require only an electric brake controller which we do sell separately on our website. There's no actuate or hydraulic lines necessary. On the brake pads, they do use an automotive grade friction material. It's molded to the brake shoes and the pads are fully bonded so they're not riveted to the shoes.

It gives you a lot longer life, more braking torque. If you notice on the edges of these brakes they are tapered edges and then they do a circular grinding of the pad that gives you less chance of cracking and crumbling that could lead to mechanical lockup. This set happens to be self-adjusting brakes so they do not require the periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes. You can tell they're self-adjusting because if you look at this cable right here it goes around a pulley, attaches to the lever right down here which you'll automatically adjust it as needed. It does use a fine tooth brake adjustment gear so it allows for a more precise setting. There is no break-in period needed following your initial adjustment. If you notice on these backing plates, they are an E-coated backing plate, helps resist wear and corrosion.

They also include the adjuster plugs in the very bottom here. These are the holes that you'd adjust your brakes through, but they do put the rubber plugs in there and it helps keep any dirt and grime from getting into the assemblies and off of the shoes. This does include both the left-hand driver side brake assembly, the right-hand passenger side brake assembly, all the mounting hardware which is a 3/8 inch size mounting hardware which is total of 10 bolts, 10 lock washers and 10 nuts all included. This assembly does meet the QAI and CSA certifications. These are electric brakes so you'll notice the two wires that come out the back here, two black wires. They do need to be connected.

One goes to a good clean ground. The other goes to the brake feed for power. You can use either wire for either function. It doesn't matter which. The application on this again is for most standard hub and drum assemblies including Dexter, Lippard and Alco. The dimensions is 12 inches by 2 inches.

When they say that, what they're measuring the 12 inches would be the diameter so from this pad edge to this pad edge. The ruler on it is 12 inches. The 2 inches would be the width of the brake pad. There's your 2 inches. This is designed for a five-bolt brake mounting flange so your axle does have to have a brake mounting flange which is five bolts to install this on and it is designed for axles that are rated 5,200 pounds, 6,000 pounds and 7,000 pounds. The last thing I do want to mention is this is the left hand, this is the right hand. The way to tell that is when you get them new they'll have a sticker that will tell you that. By chance if the sticker wasn't on there, the easy way to tell is just look at the length of the pad on the shoe. This one goes from here to here. This one goes from here to here. The shorter pad, which is this one right here, is the primary shoe that faces the front of the trailer so that will tell you that this goes on this side which would be the driver's side or left-hand side. If you go to the right-hand side, same way. Just look at the length. Here's the shoe goes from here to here and over here goes from here to here. Again, this is the shorter shoe, the primary shoe, so it would go this direction. That will tell you that this is the right-hand passenger side assembly. That should do it for the review on the 12-inch Electric Self-adjusting Trailer Brake Assembly Kit with left-hand and right-hand side brake assemblies for 5,200 pound up to 7,000 pound axles.

Product GOOD Packing and ability of shipping company to deliver without damaging product not so good. It sure defeats the purpose of buying a complete brake assembly if I have to reassemble 3 of the 4. SEE PICTURES 529577

I replaced the (4) brakes on my 8 month old 5th wheel trailer due to leaking grease seals. While I was in there, I wanted to "upgrade" to self-adjusting brakes and this brake kit fit the bill splendidly. Installation was straightforward--simple and easy. Initial brake adjustment was easier with the new kit than adjusting the OEM brakes I was replacing (the adjusting stars line up with the adjuster holes in the backing plates on the new brakes--not so much on the OEM brakes). The self-adjusters work as they should--used to be I'd apply the trailer brakes only from time to time (in a parking lot or fuel station) to check on how the OEM brakes were working and whether or not it was time for a brake adjustment. I still check my trailer brakes in the same manner, however, I've not had to adjust the new shoes since the initial install...very convenient. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my new brakes and the service from etrailer. P.S. I've uploaded a set of "before & after" pictures... easy to tell the difference, eh? Have you checked your brakes lately? 486715

All I can day is WOW! Great customer service fast shipping with awesome prices and easy installation. Having never done anything like this before my wife and I were skeptical about the amount of work that would be required. However I have to say if you can change a tire and grease your bearings you will have no trouble changing brakes. Thank you etrailer! 557829

Originally wanted to just repack wheel bearings, so I pulled a wheel to find out which Grease Seals to order. Found brake shoes worn a lot. Because the price on a complete assembly was sooo reasonable, I ordered 4 assemblies plus seals. Turns out the other three (original) brake assemblies had blown grease seals. What a mess! Not to mention my experience of poor to no braking power! So glad I ordered new, complete brake assemblies. No mess, no fuss. Just pull old assembly, cut wires, replace new assembly, splice wires- Done! BTW - one of the new assemblies had a crack in the shoe - probably from being banged in shipping. etrailer replaced it right away and I returned the cracked one. What GREAT service! I have attached a pic of one of the old assemblies w the blown grease seal so you can see how reasonable it is to just buy and replace the whole thing vs. all the clean up that you would need to do if you did just the shoes. 513017

I sent a question to etrailer.com Re: brake assemblies for my 1964 Airstream RV. I got a prompt response explaining how to measure the old brakes on the trailer to correctly size the brakes I needed. Finding the size allowed me to research the hub & bearing assemblies I also needed. I ordered them all with confidence they'd fit. Installed the self adjusting Electric Brake Assemblies along with the Hub kit with bearings, All parts fit together perfectly. Thanks George. 419448

I’m very satisfied with the Brake and Hub Assy’s. I purchased from you guys. I recently had a question regarding Lug Nut Torque on the Hubs. I couldn’t locate any info on the instructions that came in the Boxes nor could I find this Info on the website. I looked in the FAQ’s area & also on the parts info page for the parts I bought. I like finding the Info myself, Usually after hours. I ended up having to call you guys. I talked to Sammie at Customer Service, She didn’t have the exact but did know where to get it. She sent me the Torque Chart with the Torque settings for the Hub and Wheel Type I have. I think that this Info Should be included in the box with the new Hubs and Lug Nuts, Plus easily found on the website. Your Videos and Tips are a Great Extra Plus for us DIY’s like me. I Appreciate Your effforts!! Thanks Again,

I ordered 2 sets of these backing plates for my 2008 Equipment trailer with tandem 5200 lbs axles (6 Lug Pattern) and the package arrived incredibly fast, it only took about 3-4 days from the time I ordered them to the time they arrived at my doorstep. It's most impressive because they came from the USA and I live in Canada so that's incredibly fast shipping. The products were very easy for me to install. I actually just finished installing all 4 of them on my trailer this morning. It was a very easy job, removing the old worn out plates with the brand new ones I ordered. I've never changed these before in my life, but I watched the etrailer video on replacing back plates on YouTube and went off of what they demonstrated in the video, and it made this whole procedure a peace of cake. Definitely worth the money and time doing a job like this yourself if you have the right tools and know how. etrailer's videos online make these installs incredibly straight forward, I know they helped me out tremendously. 427771

While investigating poor trailer brake performance, I discovered that 2 grease seals had failed putting grease all over the brake shoes, magnet and drum surfaces. This was a cost effective solution to restore brake performance. I replaced all 4 assemblies as well as all 4 seals. The hub / drum and bearings were all good, so I cleaned the grease off the surfaces and reused those. Unfortunately one of the assemblies which arrived had a short in the magnet but etrailer sent a replacement quickly. The customer service rep's are fantastic to work with, they understood my issue and worked to make it right! Cost me a little extra in my labor, but I could use the exercise anyway. These are pretty easy to replace, and I would recommend replacing your seals and re-packing your bearings to complete the maintenance. As a note, these do not come with the wire butt connectors, you will want to pick up some shrink butt connectors to splice the wiring together. 529704

I have ordered from etrailer.com on other occasions and for the most part what keeps me coming back in the pricing. They usually have the lowest price for the same original equipment. Be careful if you haven't heard that your product has shipped in a reasonable amount of time, even if their website says they have the item in stock. They will hold your order until they have all the parts to ship. I had not seen a shipped email for almost a week and when I called they said they would have it to ship in mid august, about a month after I ordered. I was told they had a similar item in stock ready to ship now if I wanted to change my order. I appreciated that and did change my order, however, I needed to know that information at the time they knew it because I had to change my vacation plans because I could not get the parts in time to take our 5th wheel. Overall this is a good place to order parts from and I will keep doing so. 414913

These brake backing plates are great and really cost about the same as buying shoes and springs separately...but this way they come pre-assembled. These come with new mounting bolts and nuts. The nuts DO NOT appear to be of good quality and I would advise against using them. (use your originals) Replacing all four backing plates on my trailer, I broke out the digital torque wrench to torque the 5 backing plate nuts/bolts to the recommended 50ft-lb. At less than 30 ft-lb of torque, I noticed they would not get any tighter, although I was backing up the bolt with a wrench. I removed the nut to find the treads had pulled thru the nut, not cross threaded as I hand tightened them initially, but the threads just gave up. Bolts still looked ok. I replaced with my originals and all is ok. Don't trust these supplied nuts without verifying torque with a torque wrench. If I was etrailer, I would remove them from the kit. 468170

So Disappointed!! This is a review of my order experience, not the product. I needed to replace the brake assemblies on my camper before we could go on vacation. I call to see how long it would take to receive and was told 2 days. I placed the order and received as told. I was about to be impressed until I opened the box. They not only sent the wrong brand, but also the wrong size. I called customer service and had to wait 45 minutes for someone answer. She agreed it was their mistake. I told her I only had two more days to get them on and still go on vacation. I asked for next day delivery. She was able to do that, but said it would ship that day and go 2nd day. The next day, the order had not shipped and the tracking number I was given doesn't even register on UPS. I don't when or if I will receive the correct product. Very disappointed that they would not step up and make it right. 402822

I ordered two sets of these to replace grease soaked shoes and magnets. They arrived very quickly and the installation was a breeze. Just remove the old ones and clip the two brake wires. Install the new plate sets paying attention to side labels (Left = drivers side, Right = curb side). Reconnect the brake wires (polarity doesn't matter). Torque the mounting nuts according to the instructions found on this website. I recommend using a torque wrench on the mounting bolts, but there are a set of instructions on this site about how to guess at the torque if you don't have a torque wrench. I also recommend using silicone filled wire nuts on the brake wires. I like them better than the IDC (Insulation Displacement Connector) splices. I'd definitely recommend buying the loaded plates instead of trying to replace the shoes and magnet on your existing plates. 388431

Brakes arrived in good order. Though I was concerned about packaging, the brakes were fine. Today I'll be installing, and write another review. 1st time ordering from Etrailer...and first time replacing brakes on my Keystone Toyhauler. Though I "found" what I though were the proper setup, I called Customer Service for help to make sure. Pat, confirmed my choice with her expert knowledge. So far, so good... Now...time to install. 415246

Purchased for a 2011 Forest River Salem Hemisphere with 5200 lb axles. Order arrived on time and package was is good shape despite the heavy weight. I was very satisfied that this was a free shipping package. I upgraded from the original brake assemblies to the auto adjustable drum brakes so now I will not have to get under the camper and make adjustments. The brake assemblies are high quality and are constructed very well. They were very easy to install. After I found that my old drums and were completely worn out beyond use I was forced to order a set of drums as well (local provider was same day service). The test trip was a 250 miles and the new brakes were a life saver as I needed them to avoid a collision. Thanks to etrailer for an excellent parts provider and the website is designed very well. 523373

I am replacing the brakes on our 2016 Forest River Shockwave Toyhauler. After removing the wheel drums to repack the bearings, I noticed splattered grease covering the entire brake system of each wheel. Most likely due to me over greasing the EZ lube axles. The brake assembles I ordered and received were exactly the same I was replacing which made the job very simple. I made the initial adjustments then took the trailer out for a test drive to break-in the shoes. They feel better than new. Ordering was very straight forward and shipping arrived a day sooner than expected. I will continue to use etrailer.com for my future trailer/towing needs. Now I know how many pumps of the grease gun it takes to adequately lube each axle. 505053

Product arrived very quickly. Quality parts. Had to replace pads due to easy lub system failure. Grease pumped in past seal saturated pads on and in everything. More cost effective to replace the whole assembly. Parts were a perfect replacement for Lippert factory parts. Very pleased with eTrailer and product. 361576

Decided to spoil my equipment trailer with a new set of brakes. While searching the web I came across Etrailer mostly because their prices were the lowest and the website was easy to navigate. Shipping was free and amazingly fast. Ordered on Tues. and UPS delivered on Friday. Let me start by saying i'm no trailer mechanic! These brake assemblies were just what I needed. I watched the install video and the job went smooth and without any problems. I highly recommend this to anyone intimidated by brake shoes and springs. Just bolt on the entire brake assembly in one piece, replace the hub, a quick brake adjustment and your on your way. It doesn't get any easier! 358278

Bad: Read the fine print on e trailer before you purchase. I paid with a debit card. It took 2 months for my hubs to be shipped. I thought they charged my card at the time of purchase. They charged 2 months later. This would of been OK if it were a credit card. They almost made me bounce a check by charging my debit card 2 months later. Ok, heres my mistake, I ordered the wrong thing. I am willing to pay the $28 shipping back to you. They charged $28 shipping and a fee of $38. My bill was $224. I was refunded $158. I will not do business with them again. Wonder if they will delete this comment. Good: They are very polite. 465561

Chelsey at Customer Service was very professional and knowledgeable. My brake assemblies arrived very quickly and were a perfect fit for my 09 Montanna which has Dexter 7K axles. The assemblies appear to be the same quality as my OEM brakes and were half the price of the Dexter brand. Hav’nt had a chance to road test yet because I discovered a broken suspension part, during this brake job, and I’m waiting for that part to come in. I have bought from etrailer in the past and have always had, including this order, great service at a great price!! I highly recommend this company for all your trailer part needs!! 457287

I thought I had the right product selected and called customer service but was quickly informed that I would need a different style for my trailer. Glad I called. The shipment came in a timely manner. The parts all fit well and went together smoothly. Only problem was brakes would not engage when energized and after trying to troubleshoot I called for support and was told it had to be a problem with my ground. I was convinced that I had a good connection but upon further inspection the wire popped out of the harness and once it redid it the brakes worked flawlessly. Good product and customer service. 565186

The product arrived in a timely manner and well packaged. All items were included and correct. The primary product was self-adjusting electric brakes and backplate for my 6K axles. The fully assembled units were clearly marked for right and left applications and appear to be of high quality. They fit perfectly. Although the entire process of cleaning the drums/hubs and cleaning and re-packing the bearings took several hours, the replacement of the brake units was very easy and took about five minutes each. An additional one to two minutes per unit is required to do the initial brake adjustment. 509556

Seriously, this an awesome value for my money. ALL new parts and simple installation. Was thrilled to throw away all of the rusted mess of broken parts that were on this trailer when I bought it. Look it over when installing as one assembly had the shoes knocked out of position from rough handling during shipping...that will happen as it was a heavy box. Arrived quickly and was ready for it, installed same day. Pay attention and adjust the brakes after installation equally and consistently and they work great. Totally happy! Wish I would have found this company sooner. Thank you! 516374

Order arrived very quickly. Placed on Friday, arrived on Tuesday from Mo to Pa. Items were packed well and arrived in good condition. Upon initial inspection all items appear of good quality. Ordered tires, brakes with backing plates, hubs ,seals and grease. Haven't installed any items yet, but I am sure I will have no issues. Free shipping is a plus. Additionally unlike other free shipping offers that are out on the back burner for a week, order was processed and shipped promptly. I have recommended etrailer to friends and would highly recommend them to anyone. 373540

well, there I was,.......... wait, thats another story, a friend of mine purchased a WW stock trailer, and we had to rebuild it. we got to the brakes, both axles. I think they were from a panzer tank or something. Pure junk, started researching and found etrailer........ amazing product, bolted on, wired them up, and they worked great!!! what a concept now days, to actually get a great product for a fair price. I will be a loyal customer from now on. very good products and service, please please keep up the good work. 420517

I ordered four complete self adjusting brake assemblies, along with grease seals for my 5th wheel trailer. Their was a problem with the condition of the parts when they arrived, & I contacted etrailer. Rachael got right back to me & did whatever she could to make the problem better. Once the parts were correctly assembled the brakes & seals fit the trailer, & worked as they should. My thanks to the staff at etrailer for stepping up, & supplying quality parts. They give service after the sale. John 371971

Brakes arrived quickly. After removing from package, I noticed the brake shoes on two of the four had come off the top pivot point. They had to be pushed back to their original position. On three of the four the self adjusters were not in their proper place either. But after being a mechanic for 45 years, I try not to sweat the small stuff! The hardest part of the entire process was removing twenty five year old worn out brakes from the cow trailer! Good thing I ordered bolt kits as well. 554521

These are outstanding backing plates and brakes setups. I ordered four of these for my 1997 Sunnybrook fifth wheel. Everything is preassembled! All I had to do was adjust the brakes a little to get the new hubs over them and that was all. Five nuts to remove and replace. Great product! 382238


Comments

The Drums, Bearings and Backing plates I installed from your company have worked GREAT! I have not had a single issue with their operation. I even accidentally ordered the incorrect seals, and that was handled perfectly! Thanks so much for carrying and supplying QUALITY parts and having excellent customer service!

Product design and function was acceptable. Packaging caused some movement of the components. One required some disassembly to correct the problem. The other was corrected by hand movement. It was obvious that the assemblies had contacted each other during shipment and dislodged the components. Brake assemblies should be individually boxed and placed into a larger container. This could manifest as a safety issue if the customer was unaware of the component movement. 383911

Received my order on the days that was indicated, items look as advertised, have not been able to install due to weather. I did view your installation guide and it answered the initial adjustment question. I spoke with Derck on the purchase and he was most helpful. The first item I open had a small chip on the shoe hope this will not be and issue. Overall I have been very please with service and product hope to order more items as I need them. Glen 399452

Installed this brake kit on a Military Light Tactical M1102 Humvee Cargo Trailer. These bolted up just like they were made for it and work extremely well. I did have to use new nuts and bolts as the old bolts were pressed into the backing plate. Total job time was about an hour. I was not able to use the old hand brakes as they wouldn't attach to the new electric brake assemblies. Overall this was a good purchase, price and shipping couldn't be beat. 500224

The parts look good, as most new things do. I have not installed yet and can't say how they work. Unfortunately, your packaging is by far the WORST I've seen. Four heavy brake assemblies in a big box with a piece of paper OVER the top! Chimps can do better.. So after a three day UPS ride, four break assemblies smashing into each other arrived with chipped break linings and various loose pieces in the bottom of the huge box. Not a great selling point 427490

Brake assemblies were delivered fairly quickly, not totally pleased to find they were made in China. They were not packaged appropriately and had a couple of chips on lining. I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning them so I just put them on. I am going to give it a 2 star rating for quick delivery and price point for the product. I would buy again for a trailer that is not used often but would not recommend these for a heavy trailer. 545763

These assemblies were a perfect match. Bolted right on and the materials they are made of seem to be comparable to the Dexter assemblies I removed. Only time will tell if they hold up. The pads on the dexter assemblies were coming loose from the shoes and curling at the edges. Hoping these will do better. Gave these a 4 because my main concern when buying online is that things fit and the materials are good. No issues with installation. 565668

Brakes were exactly as they said on the website. I would say that I wish they had a cross reference from older brake numbers to the new ones. I received the brakes in 2 days using the free shipping and replaced all 4 wheels on my trailer. 417146

Shipping was much faster than expected, ordered Tuesday arrived Thursday afternoon. They contacted me immediately after purchase to offer a less expensive and faster received alternative. All items came as described. Prices were significantly cheaper than locally, not to mention they didn't have everything in stock and it would've taken them longer to get than it did for me ordering here. Would definitely buy through etrailer again. 553406

These backing plates already assembled with brakes and self adjusters are a no brainer. They will make you're life so much easier and for everything that you get the cost is rediculously low. The quality was great and installation was so easy a child could do it. I did all four wheels new backing plates and drums with bearings and everything for 100 per wheel shipped. Crazy good deal....will definitely shop from etrailer.com again 374951

I'm a first time trailer owner. So, I knew nothing about electric brakes. I have a very old trailer and I decided to grease the bearings and much to my surprise there were no working brakes on this trailer. I was very happy to read and view videos on all the information that etrailer had available. I found what I needed and received the brakes in only a couple of days. They fit and work very well. Thank You etrailer! 538394

Parts arrived quickly and installation was quick and simple, haven't as yet got to try them out but have no doubt that there won't be any issues. Reading other customer reviews convinced me to purchase from etrailer.com 501198

The break parts I ordered arrive without any damage and fit like they should. Installation went smoothly and without any trouble total time I spent was right at 30 minutes per wheel, that includes cleaning and repacking the wheel bearings. I worked with "Robert " who was very knowledgeable and helped me to order the right parts to get my trailer back on the road! If I need anything else I will use them First. 486386

The product is great, the price is great, but packaging SUCKS. I have purchased these brakes 3 times in the last 2 years and every shipment had at least 1 set that the shoes and adjusters we’re knocked off the backing plate. Takes extra time to take apart and reassemble.the UPS gorillas need more than packing paper to keep the the brakes from getting damaged. Include 5 new nuts with each brake set. Thanks 526085

The brakes on my trailer were tore up! I have never worked on trailer brakes before but the brake sets I ordered fit the bill for replacement. The set I picked out on your web site were the same your phone angel recomended to me. The first two brake sets are on. The last two go on tomorrow. Leaky seals slowed me down. Brakes fit great! Easy installation.. Hope to get to try them in the near future. 542482

So far so good. They take a bit to adjust to where they need to be. After that they work great. My advise is to find a back road after installing them. Go about 30mph and keep using the electric brake control in the cab to manually turn on the trailer brakes. Constant on and off for a few miles. You will feel them adjusting and biting harder while doing this. After that they will be good to go. 432904

Good quality products and they arrived ahead of time. My only issue is that the packing was very poor; they were tossed into a box with nothing separating the brake assemblies. During shipping several brake shoes were damaged and the assemblies were beaten up pretty badly. Fortunately I know my way around brakes so was able to put them back together. Other than that, no complaints. 541423

I have been in business for over 30 years and a hobby of mine is I look at different company operations thinking what could be done to improve their service and etrailer.com does it right. From tracking your order, emails and videos on products you just purchased. This allows you all the information you need to install you parts right the first time. Great Job! 496446

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • How Do Self-Adjusting Brakes Adjust and Does it Work Going Forward or Reverse
  • Self-adjusting brakes # AKEBRK-7-SA do not require that you travel in reverse for them to adjust. They can adjust themselves going forward or backward. Keep in mind that even self-adjusting brakes require 1 initial adjustment. You could just install them and they would eventually adjust out but until that happens you would have weak brakes. Basically if the brake shoes have to move too far before they touch the drums a pulley spins the adjustment wheel which then takes and adjusts the...

  • Wheel Bearings, Grease Seals and Electric Drum Brakes for 2002 Fleetwood Pride 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We can help you with replacement bearings, grease seals and electric drum brakes for the 6K axles on your 2002 Fleetwood Pride fifth wheel camping trailer. The best value in a pair of self-adjusting 12 x 2-inch electric drum brakes that will work great on your axles comes from Axle Teknology kit # AKEBRK-7-SA. You will need two kits to have four new brakes, two left-hand and two right-hand. These have the common 5-bolt mounting pattern. When you wire them you can use either wire for...

  • Comparing The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA To 7K Dexter Brake Assemblies # 23-465/23-464
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA are the equivalent of the Dexter 7K assemblies # 23-465 and # 23-464. They are actually a little nicer than the Dexter assemblies in my opinion because the brake shoe material is cut instead of scored and broken off so there is a cleaner line for less wear and tear at the edge of the material. They are absolutely compatible with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly - 7,000...

  • Replacement Hubs, Brake Assemblies, and Tire/Wheel Combination for Old Trailer With Dexter Axles
  • I have replacement hub, brake, and tire/wheel options to replace what you have on your Dexter axle. They will fit the spindle measurements that you sent me of: A is 3" B is 2.125" C is 1.75" D is 1.25" E is 1" The replacement hub and drum assembly that fits that spindle is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 42866UC3. With this assembly you will need to purchase the grease seal # GS-2125DL which has the smaller I.D. of 2.125 inches. If you have E-Z Lube spindles on your...

  • Replacement 12 inch Brake Assemblies for Dexter 36-89 on Trailer

  • Recommended Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies for 7,000 lb Axles
  • For your 7,000 lb axles with 8 bolt hubs, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA or the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 will be a great fit. The 5-bolt they are referring to is the mounting flange on your axle for the brake assemblies. All 7,000 lb axles will have either a 4 bolt (AL-KO Axle) or 5 bolt assembly (all other brands) with 5 being...

  • Replacement Axle Needed for Lippert 5,200 lbs Axle with Serial Number 045-001684271
  • I do have a solution for you, however when I spoke with my contact at Lippert they said that your axle is rated for 5,200 lbs and the highest rated standard axles that we have are rated for 3,500 lbs. The alternative solution that we have is the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # ASR5200S01. This system is rated for 5,200 lbs and can be used as a single axle or you can use 2 for a tandem axle trailer. There are a few great things about the Timbren system. It increases ground clearance since...

  • Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies Compatible with AL-KO 7200 Drums
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA will fit an AL-KO 7200 drum. These brakes will not require maintenance adjustments as the shoes wear over time because they will automatically adjust as needed to give you the best braking function. Those hubs are discontinued and uniquely sized to fit the 99 spindle, so if you need replacement hubs compatible we have the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 7,000-lb Axles -...

  • Recommended Suspension to Replace 5,200 lb Axles
  • Before potentially upgrading, you'll need to use your trailer's VIN and contact the manufacturer to ensure it can handle the extra capacity you're looking to add. If so, you can upgrade by using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # TASR7KS01 which has a capacity of 7,000 lbs and will replace your traditional axle. These suspension units can be bolted or welded to your trailer, though if you do not have a crossmember above the area you are going to install the Timbren, you might...

  • Difference Between Dexter and etrailer.com Brand 12 inch Brake Assemblies
  • Dexter brake assemblies like the part # 23-458-459 are essentially the best ones on the market. They use the best materials and and incredibly reliable and well-made. That being said the etrailer.com brand assemblies part # AKEBRK-7-SA are also very well made too. We have sold a ton of these and gotten very positive feedback on how well they well they work and how reliable they are.

  • Replacement 12 inch Brake Assemblies for Hadco Trailer Axles
  • We have a large selection of 12 x 2 electric brake assemblies available, which I have linked for you to look through. I recommend looking at the etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting # AKEBRK-7-SA. These 12 inch assemblies are designed for 5,200 to 7,000 pound axles and feature a 5 bolt mounting flange bolt pattern. They are also self-adjusting so they will not require periodic manual adjustments like standard brakes. I have included a short video demonstration on this...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Brakes for 7K Axle
  • Dexter does make excellent products, but in this case I recommend going with our Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA over the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-464-465. They both have the same features except that the etrailer.com option has pads that are cut during production as opposed to snapped off. This results in the etrailer.com brake pads lasting longer and having better resistance against wear and tear.

  • Recommended Brake Assembly Backing Plate Bolt Installation
  • The attachment bolts for a 5-bolt brake assembly should be torqued to 30-50 foot/lbs. This will ensure your brake assembly # AKEBRK-7-SA is secured correctly. If you don't have a torque wrench, I recommend the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench - 3/8" and 1/2" - 10 to 150 ft-lb # ALL944001.

  • Electric Brake Assemblies For Dexter 6000 lb Axles With 12x2 Inch Drums

The brake pad material is actually cut instead of scored and broken like other assemblies, so you get a better quality pad. If you want the current Dexter assembly...
