Expert Answers about Trailer Brakes


  • What Is The Difference Between Dexter Electric Brakes 23-180-181 and 23-105-106?
  • The difference between the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7,000 lbs # 23-180-181 and the # 23-105-106 you mentioned are the strength of the brake magnets. The # 23-180-181 was designed for 7000lb axles where the # 23-105-106 was designed for 6000lb axles so it has slightly weaker brake magnets. They are both 12" x 2" brakes so they are interchangeable, but you will want to match them to the weight rating of your axle to make sure you get...

  • Inexpensive 12 Inch Electric Trailer Brakes for a 7,000 Lb Trailer Axle
  • Yes, the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-180-181 (23-180 + 23-181) is a top of the line option so if you are looking for a more cost effective solution I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA instead. These brakes are actually self-adjusting whereas the former are manual adjusting so they will be better in this regard.

  • Comparing etrailer and Dexter Axle 12" Electric Brake Kits
  • Yes and no. The first thing to note is that the etrailer brake kit you were looking at is part # AKEBRK-6 and is just a regular brake kit while the Dexter Axle kit you were looking at is part # 23-464-465 which is their Nev-R-Adjust kit that adjusts automatically. The etrailer equivalent is part # AKEBRK-7-SA which definitely costs more than the standard brake kit, but it's still a little ways away from the Dexter Axle set. With that being said, Dexter Axle is a great company who...

  • Difference Between Hydrastar Brake Kits for Tandem 7k Axles HSE7K-T1 and HSE7K-T1SO
  • The part # HSE7K-T1SO comes with rotors that slip over idler hubs and the # HSE7K-T1 instead comes with rotors that are integrated into hubs. So it's totally different applications based on the style of hub that the trailer has.

  • Parts Needed to Add Trailer Brakes to 2012 Wells Cargo Trailer with 3,500 lb Axles
  • Look behind your current hubs for a square mounting flange that has four bolt holes on it. If you have the flanges the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA will bolt right up and you'd just need a matching setup of hub/drums and some wiring to have trailer brakes ready. Then for hub/drums you'd just want the # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which fits 3,500 lbs axles and is even pre-greased! For 10 gauge wire we also offer the # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot.

  • You can use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-468-469 as long as your Dexter Axle does have the Brake Mounting Flange # 4-35, otherwise you will need to have those welded on. These brakes are great as once you have them initially set you will not have to adjust them periodically. They will automatically adjust which improves braking quality and life.

  • Difference Between Dexter 3500 lb and 4400 lb Brake Assemblies
  • Actually, there's a little more to it than that. The magnets on the # K23-478-479 are a little different, but the primary difference is the mounting bolt pattern. On a typical 3500 lb brake assembly, the mounting studs will all be 2-7/8 inches apart on center. On the # K23-478-479 4400 lb brake assembly, the top studs are 2-7/8 inches apart, but the bottom ones are spaced a bit further apart to prevent a 3500K brake assembly from being used on a 4400K axle.

  • How To Determine if 10 x 2 1/4 Trailer Brakes Have a 3,500 Pound Capacity
  • 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...

  • The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-105-106 are a replacement set for the 023-358-00. This kit includes a right and left brake assembly that is manually adjustable. I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-458-459 as they will self adjust to help ensure that your brakes operate evenly. This will also include both the left and right sides. Be sure to get 2 for both of your axles.

I recommend using the HydraStar Disc Brake Kit w/ Actuator # HSE7K-TR1 which come with the EOH actuator, disc brake hub/rotors, and the brake line parts needed for all 3 axles. The only other parts you'll need are a junction box like # e99011 and a breakaway kit like # 50-85-315 (but you should have both of these since you currently have electric brakes). The junction box gives you a 7-Way connector on your...

  • Electric Brake Replacements for Tandem 3500 lb. Trailer Axles
  • To replace your existing brakes on your tandem axle boat trailer where the axle is rated for 3500 pounds and the drum is 10” in diameter, I will work on the assumption that the brake drum depth is 2-1/4 inches as is standard. These will work on the standard 4-bolt mounting brake flange. The self-adjusting brakes I would recommend are the Dexter # 23-468-469 “Nev-R-Adjust” brake pairs. (You will need to order two pairs.) I have included links to an install video. During the installation...

  • Upgrading Big Tex #35SA Trailer With Brakes

Based on this, to convert your trailer with no brakes, to adding electric brakes, on your Big Tex 35SA trailer, the first thing you need is a left and right brake kit. You could use the Dexter 23-26-27 kit (includes left and right) which matches your Dexter axle 4” X 4” brake flange.

This will work with dual 16" wheels so you will need to make sure that is what your trailer currently uses. You will need to use Dexter Axle Oil Hub # 008-430-03 for each spindle to allow you to install the above kit unless you already have idler hubs.

The # 23-180-181 is rated for 7,000 lb. axles and the # 23-105-106 is rated for 6,000 lb. axles. You will want to match them to the weight rating of your axle to make sure you get adequate braking for your trailer. I was able to locate a bearing that fits with the outer...

The hub that is included with the # HSE7K-TR1 requires that your current hubs use inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # 14125A, so if your hubs have different bearings using the rotor only kit would be the best option.

Since these brake assemblies don't come with any hardware you'll need part # BRKH10B to mount these. When it comes to the hubs, the good news is that 3500-lbs axles are all going to use an # L68149 inner and # L44649 outer bearing; so there's not much guess...

This brake kit is designed to fit the trailer hub # 8-288-3UC1 which was found on 10k axles made before 2009. Then for a kit that comes with brake lines for a tandem axle trailer you'd want the # HBA16-252-82 and you'd be set.

For a 3,500 lb axle you'll use part # K2R35D or part # K2HR35DKG for combined which also requires part # DBRKHW35EZ.

This would then work just fine with the Kodiak 225 Calipers. That said, if you were only running idler hubs without brakes on the other axle there could indeed be an offset. I don't think this would cause an issue or really even be noticeable but you could use spacers as you mentioned but we do not offer these.
