E-Z Lube-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub with Integrated Drum - 84546UC3-EZ Review

Today we're going to review part number 84546UC3-EZ. This is the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub and drum assembly is designed to fit on axles that have electric brakes. The drum would fit over the brake assembly on the axle. It does include everything showing here, the bearings, the races which are pre-installed in the hub, the grease seal, the grease cap and the lug nuts. Now this is designed for an EX lube axle, and what the EZ lube design is, it makes lubricating the bearings very simple. Basically, when this is slid over the hub and it's tightened down, and then you put the dust cap on basically what you can do is you can actually grease your bearings without having to remove the whole hub and drum assembly.

Basically you just remove this rubber plug that's in this center cap and you would have access to the zerk fitting. It would be on the end of the spindle of the axle and then you could put your grease kit on that and grease your bearings without having to disassemble the whole hub. Again, the application on this is most 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with electric breaks, it even includes the Dexter axles. The drum dimension; this is measured by the diameter, which would be 10 inches, this is the diameter, and then the width, which would be this measurement right here is 2 1/4 inches wide. I just want to show you that basically that measurement would also be, you can see 10 inches, and then just to drop it down and if we put the measurement on it this way you can see right at 2 1/4 inches wide. Basically, that would be the measurement also of the brake assembly that would be on your trailer axle.

So if you have brakes that are 10 in by 2 1/4, that's when it's meaning that this drum would fit over it. The bolt pattern again is 5, as you can see the 5 lugs, 4 1/2 in. The wheel studs they use are 1/2 in diameter. The weight capacity is 1,750 lbs. When you use this on one side, and another one on the other side, that would get you your 3,500 lb capacity. Now, the bearings that are included; the inner bearing right here, which would be L68149 that would go, and again the pre-installed race is right in there so that inner bearing would go right in like that.

Then with your bearing installed, you put your grease seal right in there, it's a double lipped grease seal. The outer bearing, which is part number L44649, that would just drop in again the pre-installed race that's already in the hub and drum. One everything is tightened down, you can put this included center cap. Again, this is a EZ lube center cap, I just want to show you how you can remove that. There's a rubber plug right in here, so if you just pull that rubber plug right out, and with it on there you can see that you'll have access to Zerk fitting, and when you're done greasing it, you put that plug back in to protect it. Then it also comes with the five 1/2 in lug nuts that are that are used to, when you're ready to put your wheels and tires on to your hub and drum.

Then you can just use these lug nuts to tighten it down. That should do it on the review on part number 84546UC3-EZ, it's the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles. .

Excellent quality product. I feel much more confident towing my '99 trailer with new Dexter hub and drum assemblies all around. ...and because I did the job myself, I know what to do if anything goes wrong on the road. I saved "the best" old hub and bearings as a spare just in case. I really liked the fact that you get manufacturer quality parts that are all meant to fit together, and include new lug nuts. One small issue was encountered when installing the outside bearing on one of the spindles: the bearing got stuck on the spindle as it was going in. The solution was to use high grit (3000) sand paper on the spindle right at the lip which was causing the bearing to get stuck. After sanding and thorough cleaning it was easy peasy! Hub&drum assembly: ~$55; confidence on the road: priceless. (yeah, :~$55 is not an emoticon -lol) 408601

I bought 4 of these to replace all my brake system parts. They came with the races installed and were very easy to assemble and install. Nuts come with them. BE SURE TO SAVE YOUR GREASE CAPS FOR THE ONES THAT CAME MINE ARE JUNK AND DO NOT FIT. Time will tell the quality but at this time I have told my friends to buy these for the price is right. 222611

Seems to fit correctly. The old drum had an inspection hole on the face, for checking pad thickness. This drum doesn't have the inspection hole. The instructions list a washer between the castle nut and the bearing, no washer was provided, I used the old one. The drum brakes need to be beded in (really abused) before they will start to work. I took the trailer out at freeway speeds and manually applied full brakes for a "2 count" ~100 times. After a even few more miles, and two 100 mile tows, the brakes started to work better. 513080

Fast shipping and top quality parts! Last summer I replaced all four brakes, hubs and bearing sets on my camper with these identical parts, but over-torqued one bearing and experienced an outer bearing failure on one spindle - almost lost the wheel. This unit is the same as I used previously and will replace the hub that was damaged by the bearing failure. I'm just waiting for warmer weather to install it - I won't be as aggressive on tightening the bearing this time. 116262


Comments

We have a tightening method that works pretty well for us. We tighten the nut, while turning the hub. As soon as we feel some resistance on the hub turning we stop. Then we back the nut off 1 notch on the castle nut, and secure with the pin or tang washer. Backing off that one notch allows enough breathing room for when the internals and grease warm up and expand a little. Ideally you want about .001 to .007 inches of room and backing off one notch usually falls within that range.

As a consumer in todays age, I look for service but also price adjusting when possible based on competition. Not the first time I ordered from Etrailer but I did find other competitors with lower pricing on the items I purchased. Comical to see that not appropriate for review is indicating anything contrary to excellent. Thus it is that pictures shown of damaged boxes may not reveal how the end product is used or affected but it is also part of the process of ordering in the future. If asking for tips only or how to give rave reviews when the overall needs to be conveyed, then why offer it as an alternative to begin with? 553105

Bought four of these Dexter Hub and Drum Assembly. First off 1 box was different from the rest and that box included all that is pictured. The other three were missing new spindle nuts and nut locking clips. The three different boxes also had grease seals that were the wrong size (you could push them in the hub by hand, no hammer needed). The three different one had lug nuts that were really tight in the socket. Tried to replace on a Monday evening and had to miss work on Tuesday to chase down new seals from a real auto parts store (don't bother with the big chain parts stores). Not real happy with this purchase. 568910

Great Price on a new brake drum for my Casita. Included everything - bearings, seals, dust cap, retainer, axle nut and lug nuts. Did not include the washer, but that's no big deal (I have a few extra!). Arrived much faster than expected, too. Got my Casita back on the road after a bearing failure that scored the inside of the hub. Great price and good service from etrailer! I must also mention that etrailer has so much good INFORMATION and tutorials as well. There might be other online sites that have it for a penny cheaper, but they don't have the information you need to get the job done right. Thanks again etrailer! 510558

Got this with a 10 inch trailer brake. Everything was as expected. I had to buy a couple nylock nuts from Menards. They are 7/16 by 40 pitch. Which is a fine thread. 220256

I switched from idler hubs to these electronic braking hubs, I'm happy with the end result. They seem to generate a considerable amount of heat, not sure if this is due to the auto adjusting feature creating a slight drag or just from break in...I would say it has gotten better over the year I have had them installed. One negative item, 1 hub seems to be machines incorrectly for the grease cap, the only way I can keep it in is with duct tape...otherwise the cap starts working it's way out of the hub, I replaced the cap thinking it was bad, new one does the same thing. 402110

I purchased a used cargo trailer. We used it in October to go to Colorado on a hunt. We had a horrible time with the brakes failing. I tore it down this Spring and found there were no brakes on the front axle. I started checking around locally and could not find the parts I needed. I found etrailer online and took a chance and ordered(something Idon’t do shop online)the parts I was sure I needed. The parts arrived Tuesday and I installed them today. Everything was just as advertised and the fit was exact. Now I just need to get two new tires and wheels and the trailer will be ready for our trip to Colorado this year. Thanks E-Trailer.

I bought 4 of these to replace all my brake system parts. They came with the races installed and were very easy to assemble and install. Nuts come with them. BE SURE TO SAVE YOUR GREASE CAPS FOR THE ONES THAT CAME MINE ARE JUNK AND DO NOT FIT. Time will tell the quality but at this time I have told my friends to buy these for the price is right. There is not a place to Review the ETrailer service. I had to send several emails to get any help. Nothing was done about the grease caps and I was finely sent 4 plastic adjusted plugs, which I returned so they could see the poor quality for themselves. Service left me sour. order the right parts and double check to be sure and return any junk. Service rating POOR. 222618

We have been going camping out West snd Southwest for five years now. Pulling 2003 Jayco 12 Sd popup behind 2006 Chevrolet Express 2500. A lot of mountains. Big Mountains. I noticed that the hydraulic brakes on the camper didn't work properly. I have tried to adjust them multiple times but it didn't help. I decided to replace them with electric brakes . It looked like etrailer had exactly what I needed. I ordered the electric brakes assembly first and then hub and drum assembly. Had to take some measures for the brake plate mounting and also get part numbers of the old bearings in the hub. All parts arrived two days after order was placed. Amazing. All the parts were there. . I am not the greatest mechanic but I was able to install them fairly quickly. Installation videos on etrailer website and YouTube were very helpful. We just went on our first camping trip this year. Only two hours drive. It seems that everything works fine I can feel that new brakes actually work. Thanks to Nicole at etrailer for helping me with this order. 528695

I am very happy with the products I purchased and the service I've received from etrailer. I jump for joy when I see the "made in america" label on products. At first I was just going to buy wheel bearings but when I saw how reasonable it was to put a set of brakes on my 5 X 8 covered trailer that I use to carry my motorcycle (Harley Bagger) I couldn't resist. Since the initial purchase I have made other purchases from etrailer with the same excellent customer service and product quality. You get what you pay for! Thank you etrailer. PS: I love the instructional videos also. 39526

Received my drums along with brakes assembly about 2 weeks ago which were packaged very well, being the drums were on the heavy side. Assembled the drums and shoe assembly in a couple of hours with ease. No problems with fit or missing parts. Trailer was not equipped with brakes when I bought it so this will be a first as for towing and stopping. Overall, brakes and drums were a correct part and fit on my dexter axle. Have not tested brakes yet but will test after doing some other repairs. 575089

Bought new Dexter brakes and drums to replace the original brakes on my 1995 Haulmark car trailer. The original drums and magnets were badly worn, and I wanted to replace them before going to the car cruise in Ocean City.

I built a utility trailer with my son from a 10K weigh capacity boat trailer and wanted to finish it properly. Bearings, hubs and drums arent an area to skimp on when building a trailer but where does a person find the RIGHT replacement parts. My local hardware and big box stores offer off brand replacement parts but of what quality and I'm still guessing as to proper replacement. I called etrailer and boy am I glad I had a micrometer handy. Their customer service walked me through all measurements and I'm assured the best quality products that will stand the test of time. I am grateful for their expertise and assured of quality. Thank you 726069

The Dexter hub and drum assembly you need, which comes with the bearings, races, and grease seal is # 84546UC3-EZ.

I've attached a review video of this product for you. For a set of electric drum brakes you can use the etrailer Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA. This kit includes both left- and right-hand brakes that use a 4-bolt mounting pattern. With these you will need matching 10 x 2-1/4-inch hub/drums to complete the set-up.

  • Best Grease to Use in Trailer Hubs
  • The highest quality grease we carry for wheel bearing is the LMX red grease like the part # L11390 that you referenced. If you are looking for a brand that is available in both a cartridge and a can you would want the part # L10320 for the cartridge. LMX Red is heavy-duty, premium grease for the toughest lubricating jobs on the biggest, heaviest equipment. It performs better under higher pressures and temperatures than standard multi-purpose grease, and it resists water better. Because...

  • Does the 3.5K Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit Come with Bearings
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-468-469 comes only with the brake assemblies. For the correct bearing kit that fits hub and drum assemblies like part # 84546UC3-EZ or # 84656UC3-EZ which are used with these brakes you need Kit # BK2-100. This comes with an # L44649 bearing and matching race, an # L68149 bearing and matching race, plus a 10-19 seal with an ID of 1.719" and an OD of 2.565" as well as a cotter pin and tang washer.

  • Comparing Timbren Axle-Less Suspension for Standard Tires and Wide Tire Applications
  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2000S02 is a suspension system integrated into a spindle that can use a 2 inch square bar to created an axle of whatever length needed. The Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - Straight Spindle - Wide Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS02 is basically the same system with a wider base prior to the brake flange and spindle to account for a wider tire. It will give you 8-1/2 inches...

  • How to Determine Weight Rating of Dexter Trailer Axle
  • The Dexter axle code P29 refers to the plant where it was made, plant 29, but this does not include capacity information. If you can find the complete serial number for the axle we can contact Dexter to find out more about it, particularly its weight rating. The 7 x 1-3/4-inch hydraulic brakes we offer, all shown on the linked page, are typically intended for axles rated for 2500-lbs, such as left- and right-hand brake kit # 23-398-399 from Dexter. For a new hub/drum we have 7 x 1-3/4-inch...

  • Tips for Removing Races from a Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly
  • Are you replacing the races in the hub? I ask because the hubs and hub and drum assemblies we sell come with the races already installed so you would not have to reuse the old ones. Races are difficult to remove but since you have one out already you can go into the opposite side from the race still in the hub and use a wooden rod to drive out the race. I do not recommend using any metal tool (unless it was designed for this application), only wood, because if the inner surface of the...

  • Recommended Brake Assemblies and Drums for Dexter P-11 model SLR SND 490400 Axle
  • I reached out to my contact at Dexter and based on the information you gave, they said is it a spring axle with a 3500 lb capacity. Based on that, I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3.5K # 23-468-469 which comes with the backing plate and the 4 bolt mounting pattern. For your drum assemblies, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 # 84546UC3-EZ...

  • Availability of Replacement E-Z Lube Grease Cap and Plug for Trailer Hubs
  • It sounds like you are needing a replacement grease cap and rubber plug for the Dexter hubs on your E-Z Lube axle. In order to find the correct part for your current hubs, you will simply want to take a quick measurement on your existing grease cap or the hub's bore. If you can tell me what model hub you have on the trailer, I should also be able to recommend the correct replacement cap to use. For example, the Replacement EZ Lube Drive-In Grease Cap # 21-41-1 features an outer diameter...

  • Recommended Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension for 5 on 5 inch Jeep Wrangler Tire
  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange # ASR2000S02 does have the ability to incorporate a hub that has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. If you would like just the hub it is part # AKIHUB-550-35-K and if you would like to have brakes you will need the Hub and Drum # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K, Right Hand (passenger's side) Brake Assembly # 23-48, and Left Hand (driver's side) Brake Assembly # 23-47. With that being said, we highly recommend using trailer tires on a trailer...

  • Brake Assembly and Hub/Drum Recommendation to Fit Dexter Axle # 7359765

  • Will Timbren Axle-Less System Allow Lower Deck Height on Trailer?
  • There is a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System which will allow you to lower your deck height, though it won't give you quite the amount you are looking for. The Timbren # A35RD545E has a 4 inch drop spindle so it will lower your deck height by that much. This system comes with electric brakes and hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. You would be able to use a wheel and tire combination such as the Taskmaster # AC14R45SM which have 14 inch wheels and a total diameter of 26.1 inches. I've...

  • Potential Causes for Trailer Hub to Heat Up
  • So long as a hub uses the correct bearings that match the dimensions of the spindle that is on the axle there is no worry about using two different brands of products, such as a Dexter hub on a Lippert axle. That in itself is not a concern. When a hub heats up it is usually from either inadequate lubrication or a castle nut that is too tight; you confirmed that neither of these applies in your situation. If the trailer is overloaded with more weight on each hub than they are rated...

  • How to Use Dexter EZ-Lube Axles and Nev-R-Adjust Brakes
  • Yes, you would need to install a new axle in obtain to obtain the "EZ-Lube" feature as it is built- into the axle itself. The axle capacity you need would be based off of both the axle capacity you have now and the gross trailer weight (GTW) of the trailer. The axle kits do not include leaf springs. They would need to be purchased separately if you wanted to replace them. In order to recommend the correct axle for you, I would need to know the distance from the center of each spring seat...

  • Trailer Hub Replacement for Dexter Hub 8-247
  • For an exact hub replacement that matches what you sent in a picture of you'd want the part # 84546UC3-EZ. The bearings this takes are # L44649 and # L68149. Since this is for an emergency scenario where you would be on the side of the road the hub replacement would be the way go instead of trying do a bearing swap which would require reinstalling a seal and greasing the hub. Ideal scenario is that you'd have the hub packed with grease and ready to go in case of emergency. For grease...

  • Replacement Surge Brake Actuator Recommendation for 1997 Eagle Spirit Boat Trailer
  • Thanks for the picture of your trailer. From that I can tell that the replacement actuator you need is the Titan Model 60 part # T43329007K which will be an exact replacement so it will be an easy install. Three inch diameter axles are typically 5,200 lb but the highest rated hub/drum we have with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like you have is 3,500 like the part # 84546UC3-EZ. If your drum measures 10 inch in diameter then this is the correct replacement most likely but it would still...

  • Easiest Place to Measure 5 Lug Trailer Hub to Determine Bolt Pattern
  • I have an easier way to determine your bolt pattern. You'd need to measure the distance between the center of one stud to the center of the stud adjacent to it. If the distance is: 2-5/8" - the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2 2-3/4" - the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4 3" - the bolt pattern is 5 on 5 3-1/4" - the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2

  • Fitting Trailer with 3500 lb Axles with Brake Assemblies and Hub/Drums
  • Based on the brake mounting flange dimensions you have you can easily install brake assemblies like the # AKEBRK-35-SA which will bolt right up. The trick though is going to be picking out the correct hub/drums for your spindles so that we can then pick the correct brake assemblies. Before we get into that though this does not add additional width to the trailer axle. Since you said you have 3,500 lb trailer axles with a 5 bolt pattern the most likely hubs you'd need are the part # 84546UC3-EZ...

  • Do Trailer Hubs # 84546UC3-EZ and # AKHD-550-35-K Fit Same Spindle

I also attached a help article on converting a trailer to electric over hydraulic drum for you to check out as well.

  • Electric Trailer Brakes and Hub/Drum Assemblies for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Kit
  • If you have a 2K-rated Timbren axle-less suspension kit # ASR2KHDS03, which includes brake flanges but not hub/drums, you can add brakes and hub/drum assemblies. For the hub use part # 84546UC3-EZ. This has the matching bearings and 5-on-4-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. For compatible self-adjusting 10-inch electric drum brakes use kit # AKEBRK-35-SA, which is a pair of left- and right-hand brakes rated for 3500-lbs.

  • Will Trailer Hub and Drum # 84546UC3-EZ Fit an ALKO 3500 Pound Axle
  • I read through the other question you sent and I can clear some things up for you. First, the ALKO axle brake mounting flanges have a different bolt pattern than do Dexter or similar assemblies when you go up to a 12 inch brake assembly and that is why they will not fit ALKO axles. The top mounting holes on an ALKO mounting flange are wider than they are on a Dexter. But on a 10x2-1/4 inch brake assembly the 4 bolt pattern should be the same. So you can use other 10x2-1/4 inch assemblies...

  • Timbren Axle Less System Recommendation for an Offroad Trailer
  • For building an offroad trailer the part # ASR2KHDS02 would be an excellent place to start. The only other kit I would have you consider would be the # ASR35HDS02. This is setup for off-road tires, has a 3,500 lb capacity, will give the trailer a 4 inch lift, and will give you 8 inches of clearance from the hub face to the trailer frame for tire clearance. These systems are great for off-road use because they don't have an axle so the ground clearance is great. For a hub with a matching...

This comes with bearings and a seal plus a cap. You'd want to verify your bolt pattern as being 5 on 4-1/2 inches like what this hub fits. If you have a different bolt pattern I attached a page that has all of the 3,500 lb hub drums we offer for you to check out. You'll be able...

I linked our main page for trailer hub/drum assemblies and on it you can click on your bolt pattern, axle rating and bearing numbers to see the hub options that are compatible.
