Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hubs and Drum?


  • How Often Should Trailer Hubs/Spindles/Bearings be Greased
  • It may not be a bad idea just to do a quick visual inspection of your hubs every 3,000 miles (or after a long road trip) but you really don't need to add grease to the bearings until you either reach 12,000 miles or 12 months (granted they are in good working order). When you do add grease at the 12,000 mile or 12 month mark you will want to use the exact same grease that is already being used for your bearings. Some greases are not compatible with each other and will actually cause...

  • Replacement 6k Trailer Brake Hub that Uses Nev-R-Lube Bearings
  • For a 6,000 lb axle we have the trailer hub part # 8-388-80UC3 which has Nev-R-Lube bearings in it. This is designed for a 12 inch brake assembly as well. This is also a Dexter brand hub which is widely considered to be a nicer quality hub than Axle Tek.

  • Recommended 235/85R16 Tires on 5th Wheel Trailer with Weight Capacity Rated Above Tire/Axle Capacity
  • Your Pilgrim International Open Road 357RLDS definitely has tires needing replaced. It is not uncommon to use LT tires on trailers, but it sounds like they have some dry rot going on. The stamp on the wheel rim unfortunately is not anything I'm familiar with so I can't help with that, but I can tell you that most trailers use a zero offset meaning that the mounting surface of the wheel to the hub is in the direct middle of the tire. The triangular or circular cutouts in the wheel are...

  • Replacement Hub/Drum and Brake Assemblies for Dexter Nev-R-Lube 5,200 lb Axle
  • Your Dexter Nev-R-Lube 5,200 lb axles use a 42 mm bearing cartridge that has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The correct replacement kit you would need that has the hub/drums with bearings pre-installed is the part # 8-388-80UC3. You would not be able to go to an EZ lube type since you have a Nev R Lube spindle setup. This is a much better setup anyway. For a right hand brake assembly you would need the part # AKEBRK-7R-SA and for left # AKEBRK-7L-SA.

  • Replacement Drive-In Studs For Dexter Trailer Hub And Drum Assembly # 8-388-80UC3
  • The wheel stud used on part # 8-388-80UC3 is part # 7-262. These are drive-in 1/2 inch studs that measure 2.7 inches long, and will work well for your hubs. If you need lug nuts I recommend part # CE11051.

  • What is the Torque Spec of the Spindle Nut on a Dexter E-Z Lube Axle
  • In order to remove the hub/drum on your trailer you will want to first remove the spindle nut. Once the spindle nut is removed you are going to want to take a hammer and tap the outer portion of the drum as well as the hub face a few times to break loose an rust/dirt. You should then be able to pull the drum off. Once the drum is off you can wipe down the spindle and then spray the braking assemblies with brake cleaner. You can then install the drum and spindle nut. The spindle nut will...

  • Replacement Hub for Dexter 5200 lb Axle with Nev-R-Lube Bearings
  • There is no difference between these parts the 8-388-30 is simply Dexter's updated part number for the # 8-388-80UC3. The part will work on Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axles that are 6,000 lb capacity and will give you a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. This is the same assembly used on 5200 lb axles as well.

  • Needing a Never Lube Bearing for Dexter 6000 Lbs Trailer Axle
  • The Redline Bearing # 31-73-3 is a cartridge style Never-Lube bearing that fits 42mm Dexter Never-Lube axle with 6 lug on 5-1/2 inch hubs with 3,000 lbs capacity like # 8-388-80UC3. This bearing complete dimension are 42mm I.D. x 76mm O.D. x 39mm wide.

  • Replacement Hub and Bearing for Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axles
  • Normally you would go by the bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearing. If you do not have those bearings though then the spindle will have to be measured. Since you have Nev-R-Lube axles though there are not that many options. If the spindle is 50mm in diameter then # 8-385-81SP or # 8-385-82UC3 would be correct. If the spindle is 42 millimeters then you would need # 8-388-80UC3 which has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Recommended Hub And Drum Assembly For Dexter 5200 lb Axles
  • The self adjusting brakes need an initial adjustment when you install them and then the self-adjusting will kick in. If you have already done the initial adjustment, the 5 mile trip should allow your brakes to work properly. If the brakes are not working properly, it may be a sign that your drums assemblies are worn down or it may just mean you need to adjust your electric brake controller settings. If you want to ensure you have working bearings, seals, and hubs, I recommend the...

  • Is Dexter Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly Sold Individually
  • Not a stupid question at all. The Dexter Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, part # 8-388-80UC3 is sold individually. If you find that down the road the inside of the drum is scored it can be resurfaced. The cartridge bearing for this assembly is part # 31-73-3. There is only one bearing for this hub and drum.

  • Can EZ Lube Hub be Replaced with Dexter Nev-R-Lube Hub without Replacing Axle
  • Dexter Nev-R-Lube hubs such as the part # 8-388-80UC3 are designed to fit Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axles. These hubs use a special cartridge style bearing that is only compatible with the spindles on a Nev-R-Lube Axle. With this in mind you would not be able to change from an EZ Lube hub to a Nev-R-Lube model without replacing the entire axle. If you are needing to replace the hubs on your trailer I will be happy to recommend a hub and drum assembly that will work well. Please just let me know...

  • Can a Dexter 42mm Nev-R-Lube Hub and Drum Fit Timbren Axle-Less Suspension
  • Trailer hub and drum assembly # 8-388-80UC3 has a specific application: Dexter 42mm Nev-R-Lube axles. It will not fit the Timbren Axle-Less suspension systems. For Timbren Axle-Less suspension that comes with electric brakes and drums use # A35RD545E for a 4 inch drop spindle or # A35RS545E for a straight spindle. These are rated for 3,500 pounds.

  • Which Electric Drum Brakes for Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axle 410980-02 Hub 8-388
  • I sent this to Dexter and this is what they sent back: I checked the number and it not a good hub number, and wheel tried pulls up 3,500 sprung axle from 2006 that doesn’t use a Nev-R-Lube hub. I would ask for confirmation on the number or some pictures of the product to confirm replacement parts that will work. If you can get me the info on your hub I can go from there. Look for a number on the outside of the drum.
