Expert Answers about Trailer Brakes


  • Comparing Dexter and etrailer.com 7,000 Pound Electric Brake Assemblies
  • The etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA and the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Kit # 23-464-465 referenced in your question are both self-adjusting assemblies that will work to replace the existing Dexter brakes on your 7,000 pound axle. Between the two options I actually do recommend going with the etrailer.com # AKEBRK-7-SA and not only because of the much friendlier cost. One thing that sets the etrailer.com brand brakes apart from other brand assemblies, including...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for Dexter PR-FF SEC-FF 5.2KPR-GGSEC-GG 12X2XQ 36-89
  • Based on the photo and information you provided, I can tell you have 12 x 2 inch Dexter brake assemblies for 5.2K axles, for which the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA will be an excellent replacement. These are self-adjusting brakes so they do not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes. To replace the original brake mounting bolts, nuts and lockwashers, you can use # BRKH12.

  • 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...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Electric Brakes to EOH System on Triple 7K Axle Toy Hauler

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...

  • We have all the parts you need to swap from electric drum brakes to electric over hydraulic brakes on your 2018 Keystone Raptor 355TS. The first thing you will need are a hub and rotor disc brake kit. I was able to find that your '18 Raptor 355TS has a pair of 7,000 lb Dexter axles so you will need two of the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 7,000-lb Dexter Axle # K2HR758D, which are a hub with an integrated rotor.

  • 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. I attached a diagram that shows...

  • 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,...

If you are wanting to upgrade to Bearing Buddys (which would require you to remove the grease zerk on your spindle) we have these both in Chrome # BB2441 and Stainless Steel # BB2441SS.

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for 12" x 2" Drums
  • To determine the brake assemblies that will fit your trailer, you need to know your axle's weight capacity, your brake's mounting flange bolt pattern and the inside diameter and depth of your hub, which you mentioned was 12" x 2" drum. If your axle was rated for 7,000 lbs and you had a 5-bolt mounting flange you could use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" # 23-464-465. For a 6,000 lb axle and 5-bolt mounting flange you can use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric...

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brakes for Keystone Raptor 5th Wheel
  • I checked the Keystone website for details on your Raptor model 3912 but I could not find this model's axle specs. Since you want to choose brakes with the appropriate stopping power you'll just want to check your specs for the axles' rating or look for a sticker or plate on the axle beam that will tell you its weight rating. Chances are the axles are rated between 5200-lbs and 7000-lbs each. Based on your photo (thank you) and the weights of Raptor trailers you most likely have 12 x...

  • Kit to Upgrade Trailers 4-Way to 7-Way to Wire up Electric Brakes
  • Your current drums will work fine with a set of electric assemblies installed instead of the hydraulic ones you have now. We actually have a kit designed to upgrade a trailer's 4-way wiring to a 7-way. For that you'd want the part # e99011. From the brake output pin of the included junction box you'd run 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 (sold by the foot) to the brake assemblies. I attached an install video for the wiring kit as well as a picture on how trailer brakes are typically...

  • 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...

The Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit uses the same brake mounting flange as your disc brake setup so it will be a direct swap. However, you will still need to obtain the hub and drum. Unfortunately, we do not carry these but the correct part number for the hub is part 8-214-8UC1...

The Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit # AKUBRK-7 that you referenced are Uni-Servo brakes which means that they will still apply braking when going in reverse, just not as much (about 20% total power) as the Duo-Servo brakes. Unless you plan on doing a lot of backing up with your trailer and you need...

  • Can I Use K2HR35D On A 6,000 Lb Trailer Axle
  • I have an option for you but the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2HR35D is designed for 3,500 lb axles so it is not a fit for a 6,000 lb axle. They are 10" brakes and a 6,000 lb trailer axle would require a 12" assembly like part # K2HR526DKG which have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. The disc brake set includes dacromet plated hub and rotor assemblies with stainless steel bolts so they are great for boat applications. The bearing kit that fits this hub is part # DBRKHW6SS.

  • Trouble Removing Spindle Nut On Dexter 10K Axle

In some cases, you can remove the spindle nut with a set of channel locks but in others you will need to use a socket and ratchet or even possible a breaker bar depending on how long the spindle nut has been on there. If you have access to a torch you can heat the nut up as that will help to remove it but otherwise you just need to use more force. For a new tang washer you can use part # 5-59.

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
  • It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle. It is also not advised to use self-adjusting braking assemblies on one axle and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the other. The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns. If you have a 3,500 lb axle or multiple 3,500 lb axles on your trailer then you will need to use the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake...

The first thing is you can measure the diameter of your hub. The second thing is you can look at the brake flange, if it has 4 bolts then it is 10 inch if it has 5 then it is 12 inch. Because you know you have a #84 spindle we can be confident that you have a 3,500 lb axle and you will need the 10 inch assemblies. I recommend the Hydraulic...

Those hubs use inner bearing # L68149 and outer bearing # L44649 which is exactly what fits onto the spindle # TRU74FR. Plus, the sipndle has a 4-bolt brake flange for the 10 brakes to mount on.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Magnets
  • We have an article to assist with checking your brake magnets like you are stating. The resistance will go down because the brake magnets are connected in parallel. Since the voltage doesn't change, the amperage draw needs to increase to power the magnets. This is Ohms law in action based on my research. You obviously already have a multimeter like # BTMT15 so if you determine based on the article that you need to replace magnets, I recommend # BP01-180 for 12 inch Dexter assemblies...

  • Thank you for the pictures! We do offer a trailer brake option that will work with the 10" wheels on your 2014 Shorelander Trailer. Since the trailer will be in water you will want to use the Dexter Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit # 23-398-399 which includes both left and right assemblies and is for hydraulic brakes and will bolt the 4 bolt brake flange found on your axles that I was able to see in your picture. Since you have 5 lug wheels you will likely need Trailer Hub and Drum...

  • Will Dexter Electric Brakes for 6,000 lb Axle Work With 7,500 lb Axles
  • The Dexter Electric Brake Kit for 4 Bolt or 5 Bolt Flange # 23-105-106-09 will work so long as your hub and drum is 12" diameter x 2" wide, you have a AL-KO/Hayes 4-bolt or standard 5-bolt brake flange and 14-1/2", 15" or 16" wheels. So long as you meet all those requirements you can use these brakes and be just fine. To mount three of these assemblies you will also need three of the Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Single Brake Assembly # BRKH12S. I have added a link to a video...

  • Which Electric Drum Brakes for Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axle 410980-02 Hub 8-388

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.

  • Replacement Disc Brake Kit for a Dexter 12K Axle
  • The correct Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for a Dexter 12K Axle is part # K2R1258L12, not part # K2R1058D11E. I spoke with Dexter and they stated the latter would only work if you have a Dexter Hub 008-430-03. It looks like the brake mounting flange bolt pattern, rotor diameter, and calipers are the same between the above two kits but I again would not be able to confirm direct compatibility unless using the Dexter Hub 008-430-03.

  • Parts Needed to Convert 10k Trailer Axles from Electric Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic
  • First thing you need to do is verify the axles that your trailer has. Hopefully they are a standard axle like a Dexter 10k which the # K2R1058D11 you referenced fits. 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. Your controller would need to be compatible with EOH brake like our P3 part # 90195 is.

  • Parts Needed To Add Electric Brakes To Trailer With Lippert 3500 Lb Axle

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...
