Expert Answers about Trailer Brakes


  • Switching from Electric Drum Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes on Trailer w/7K Lippert Axles
  • I did some checking and your 7K Lippert axles use inner bearing 25580 and outer bearing 14125. We have 7K brake kit options that use these same bearings and have the same 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern as your existing hubs. The most basic kit is # K2HR712. The parts have a raw finish which means no corrosion resistance. The next step up from there is # K2HR712E which has an e-coat finish which is like a powder coat and offers minimal corrosion resistance. What I recommend is the next step...

  • How To Determine If Your Trailer Has Free-Backing Brake Assemblies When Replacing a Surge Coupler
  • To find out if you have free backing brakes, there are really only two ways I can think of to test. First, if your coupler works, you can push your surge coupler to move your trailer in reverse. If the brakes apply, then you know you do not have free backing brakes. If you can move it easily, then your brakes are free backing. If your coupler is broken and thus the reason you are replacing then you will need to go to the second testing option. You will need to pull one of your hubs...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • What is the Difference Between the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit 6K and 7K
  • The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-464-465 rated for 7,000 lb axles will work with your Dexter 6,000 lb axles but the braking aggression would not be ideal and I do recommend sticking with the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-458-459 rated for 6,000 lb axles. In regards to replacing the braking assemblies, there are two components that tend to wear out faster than the others on drum brakes and that is the shoes and magnets. The magnets...

  • Parts Needed to Convert From Electric Drum Brakes to Electric-Hydraulic Brakes on 2018 Raptor 355TS
  • 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. Since this kit does not come with bearings or grease seal you will need to order...

  • To replace your leaking seals, you will want the Unitized Oil Seal # 10-51. This is a confirmed fit for your hubs. I've attached a video of an oil seal installation on a similar hub to help. For your disc brake conversion, you will need to use the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly - 9,000-10,000-lb Axles - 8 on 6-1/2 - Oil Bath # 8-288-3UC1 and then the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 11" Rotor - 8 on 6-1/2 - Raw Finish - Leaf Spring - 10,000-lb Dexter # K2R1058D11E compatible with these hub assemblies...

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...

  • 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,...

  • Do Self-Adjusting Trailer Brakes Adjust Going Forward or in Reverse
  • Actually, it is recommended to make the very first brake adjustment manually on self-adjusting trailer brakes such as # AKEBRK-35-SA. This is so the brakes are ready to go without having to wait for them to adjust out while you drive (forward or reverse). Basically there is a device on the adjustment wheel on these brakes that prevents the shoes from adjusting back inward. You have to sort of move that out of the way to be able to turn the adjustment star wheel easier. The video I have...

  • 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...

  • What Is The Difference Between Dexter And etrailer Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies
  • There are a couple of differences between the etrailer # AKEBRK-35-SA and the Dexter # 23-468-469 brake assemblies. The pad on the etrailer brake is a little thick so that means the etrailer brakes will last a bit longer. Also, the etrailer brakes are cut so the edges are a bit smoother than the Dexter brakes which are snapped off of a long strip.

However, there are some differences between the brake assemblies you mentioned. The # AKFBBRK-35 are free-backing brakes, meaning they will not engage when reversing with your trailer. If your trailer has a reverse lockout on it then this feature is not necessary. They're coated with an e-coat used for corrosion resistance. The Demco brakes # 40716-15 are galvanized...

You'd need one kit per axle. These brakes can use mounting kit # BRKH12; use one kit for each set of brakes.

  • Recommended Replacement Brake Assemblies For 1997 Casita 17 Foot Trailer
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA are the correct replacements for your 1997 Casita 17 foot trailer. These assemblies need adjusting at installation only and then will self-adjust for proper braking. They are labeled so you can make sure you put the assemblies on the correct side of your trailer. If you want new mounting hardware, I recommend the Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies # BRKH10B.

  • Good questions. The difference between free backing brakes like the # AKFBBRK-35-D and regular hydraulic drum brakes like # DMSB18794M-93M (referred to as duo or duel servo) is that the wheel brake cylinder has pistons on both sides of the regular/duo servo brakes instead of just the one side on the single servo free backing assemblies. The amount of braking doesn't change much between them, they just function differently yet under the same amount of hydraulic pressure. The duo servo...

The first thing we need to find out in order to select the correct parts would be the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings in the hubs you have now. With that information I can ensure that we get you the right parts. I would also need to know the bolt pattern of the wheels and what kind of braking system the trailer currently has. Also, do all 3 of the axles have brake mounting flanges?...

  • Difference Between Demco 10 inch Drum Hydraulic Brakes and etrailer.com Brand Brakes

The part # 40716-15 is essentially the same thing buy made by Demco. The etrailer brand is going to cost less since it's our brand and there's not as much markup so it's the better deal. Now the part # 40716-15 is basically just the part # 40716 and # 40715. What doesn't make much sense though is the pricing difference. It would seem...
