Expert Answers about Dexter

  • Troubleshooting Overheating Hubs on a Trailer With New Bearings and Grease
  • Hubs will heat up when driving, but if it feels like they are getting too hot, then you will want to look at a few things on your hub. My guess is that the spindle nut is too tight and the added stress on the bearings is overheating the bearings and hub and could be causing damage to the bearings. When you install the castle nut you will want to tighten the spindle nut while turning the hub. When there is a slight bind on the bearing, the parts are seated correctly. Back the nut off...

  • How to Determine The Correct Replacement Trailer Hubs by Bearing Numbers or Spindle Size
  • The best way to determine which replacement hubs you need for your trailer would be to remove one of the hubs and retrieve the bearings. Find the numbers stamped into the bearings and with those we will be able to get you the correct hubs. If you are unable to retrieve the bearing numbers, you can take measurements of the spindle. I have included a link to our spindle main page. At the top of the page is a diagram showing all of the measurements we would need to find the correct hubs...

  • Replacement Hub and Drum Assembly for a Dexter 10K General Duty Axle 387A Inner and 25580 Outer
  • We have exactly what you are looking for. If your axles were made before 07-01-2009, then you have the old style 2-piece hub and drums, so you will want the Complete Hub Assembly, # 8-288-3UC1. Keep in mind, this does not include the drum. If you also need the drum, then you will want part # 9-44-1 for a non-ABS drum or part # 9-44-3 for a drum with the ABS exciter ring installed and 8 drum mounting bolts, # 7-245. The hub assembly comes with the races already installed and it includes...

  • Replacement Trailer Hub for a Reliable Hub BT-150A
  • I was able to find the bearing information for your Reliable BT-150A hub and it looks like it used inner/outer bearings of L44643 so the trailer hub part # 34822545BX would be the correct hub to use. This hub also has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Why Would Trailer Hub Get Hot When Leaking Grease/Oil
  • If the oil or grease of your hub is leaking out then the heat you have found is related to that. Without proper lubrication the hub is getting hot. If this is a grease hub and you put oil in it then that would be why it would be leaking out. Or you overfilled the hub with grease and in doing so blew out the seal. This is a common problem with people who use Bearing Buddies. Either way you need to replace the seal and repack the hub with grease properly. I attached a video that demonstrates...

  • Hubs and Wheel Bearings Keep Working Loose Causing Play in the Wheels
  • It sounds like the problem you are having is related to one of the possibilities you have mentioned. It is nearly impossible to press a race in straight at home unless you have the proper equipment and have done it before. Taking the drums to a brake shop might be the best option to make sure the races are seated properly. If they are seated properly then it is possible that the hub bore could be off causing the races to get out of position. The solution would be to replace the drums. If...

  • Should Spindle Be Replaced After Wheel Came Off Weekend Warrior Tri-Axle Trailer
  • Now would be a really good time to have the entire system inspected by a qualified shop. If the lug nuts were not tightened properly that could cause the wheel to come off the trailer. The bearing should have been inspected for obvious signs of wear or damage as well as the spindle. If the hub came off with the wheel and tire I imagine the threads on the spindle have been damaged. I would have someone inspect the entire system and replace or repair anything that is worn or damaged....

  • Hub Recommendations to fit a BTR Spindle with 1.06 C and D Dimensions
  • Based on the C and D dimensions you listed you have a BTR spindle. The correct idler hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that you would need would be the Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-259-5UC1-EZ. If you needed a hub and drum assembly for your spindle you would need the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-257-5UC3. The # 34822545BX would not work on your spindle dimensions.

  • Which Spindles Will Work with the Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,000 lbs Axles
  • You can use any of three spindles with the Trailer Hub Assembly - 2,000 lbs Axles - 5 on 4-1/2, item # 34822545BX. I have listed these spindles below. The main difference in these spindles is the mounting dimensions on the inboard end of the spindles. the bearing seal and threaded portions of the spindles are all the same.

  • Replacement Hub and Axle for 2007 Triton LT Trailer
  • For your replacement axle and hubs, I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs # A20RS545 or the 4 on 4 inch hubs of the # A20RS440. These replacements contain Aeon rubber suspension and have EZ Lube spindles for easy maintenance. They do require a 2 inch square tube (not included) to join the assemblies utilizing the integrated holes. This would be a great upgrade for you. If you just want to replace the hubs,...

  • Flexible Hydraulic Brake Line Hose for Trailer Brakes
  • We have brake line # T0776500 that is fitted with 3/8"-24 thread UNF male and female fittings on the ends. This is pretty much the standard size for brake lines used on trailers; 3/8-24 with 3/16 fittings. An auto parts store is sure to have any adapter fittings. I have also included a link to all of the flexible brake lines we currently offer.

  • Which Bearing Buddies Fit Trailer Hub # 34822545BX
  • You will need Bearing Buddies that fit a 1.98 diameter hub bore. We have several models. For stainless steel use # BB1980A-SS. For chrome plated use # BB1980A. And, if the hub is threaded, use # BB1980T-SS. I also recommend special seals for use with Bearing Buddies, # BB60001, to prevent having a blow out with a regular seal.

  • What is the Length of the Rubber Line on the Hydraulic Line Kit # 80910-T
  • I spoke to my contact at Redline and he informed that this Hydraulic Line Kit for Ltd Access Torsion Axles, part # 80910-T, measures 14-3/16 inches from end to end including the fittings. Since you need a minimum of 13 inches this product should work well for you.

  • Trailer Hub Assembly Must be Put Together and Packed with Grease
  • The trailer hub assembly, part number, 34822545BX, comes with the race attached to the hub. The seal and bearings are not attached. Those parts must be assembled and packed with grease prior to installing the cap. I have attached a FAQ sheet for wheel bearings and two videos for your review.

  • Replacement Flexible Brake Line Hose for a Trailer with Torsion Axles
  • First, on kit # 80910-T, one end of the flexible hose attaches directly to the brake assembly. You will then route the other end to the steel brake line and use the metal piece with the flared ends to go from the flexible hose to the steel brake line. You can use the little bracket and the clip to hold the hose in place by welding the bracket to the frame where needed. The hose needs to be long enough to account for the up and down movement of the suspension. The hose in your picture...

  • rebuilding boat trailer
  • If both of the bearings on the existing hub are LM67048 then we will not have a match. This is likely an older hub design or an agricultural hub that is not used much any more. The best solution at this time is to replace the axle which surprisingly isn't as expensive as many people think. I have included a link below to the axles we carry.

  • Are the Bearings and Seal for the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Dexter Brand
  • The included bearings and seal with the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly, # 34822545BX, were included with the hub from Dexter. Therefore, the bearings and seal are Dexter approved parts. Dexter does not manufacturer their bearings and seals for there hubs, but use the highest quality products from vendors with their products.

  • Recommendation for Replacement 5 Lug Hubs
  • It sounds like you are looking to replace your hubs. I have attached a link to our trailer hubs where you can use the filters on the page to choose the bolt pattern of your hub, your wheel size, your axle capacity, and since most of our hubs also include the bearings, you will need to make this selection as well. The easiest way to determine the correct replacement bearings for your trailer is to remove the hub and find the part numbers that will be stamped on the inner and outer bearings....

  • Replacement Hub Recommendation for a Hub that Uses L44610 Outer and L68111 Inner Races
  • Actually the numbers you listed are races and not bearings, but nevertheless I was able to determine what you need. Also, it sounds like you meant to type 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. For an idler hub you would want the part # 84655UC1-EZ. For a hub and drum you would want the part # 84656UC3-EZ.

  • Will the Hydraulic Line Kit 80910-T fit a 1995 Jayco Pop Up
  • If you are in need of a flexible brake line that measures 13-3/4 inches the part # 80910-T would work well for you. This is normally used on Ltd Access Torsion Axles but it can be used on basically any setup where the length dimension matches and the fitting size is the same. This has a fitting size of 3/16"-20. I attached a picture that shows it installed in a common application.

  • What Size Are The Threaded Ends on Dexter Axle Hydraulic Line Kit # 80910-T
  • I spoke with my technical contact at Dexter and he pulled one from the warehouse. The threads measure 3/16-20. This means that 3/16 is the screw size and 20 is the threads per inch. This hydraulic line kit can be used with either the Dexter Single Axle Drum Kit # 9504 or Dexter Hydraulic Tandem Axle Drum Kit # 9505. If you could let me know what part you have now that you are replacing, I would be more than happy to help.

  • Inspecting Trailer Spindle and Locating Replacement Bearings for Used Trailer
  • The small cut that you noticed when inspecting the spindle on your trailer can cause bearings and seals to wear out very quickly (even extremely small ones). A quick test to see if a replacement spindle is in order is to simply run your fingernail across the spindle. If it catches as you run along the mentioned cut/nick, replacing the spindle will be your best option. I am not aware of a bearing that features an inner diameter of 1.125 inches like what you mentioned. With that being...

  • Recommended Galvanized Hub and Drum with 1.75 Inch Inner Bearing Diameter
  • For a hub and drum that should work with the axles on your boat trailer, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 6,000-lb Axles # 8-201-51. These are compatible with the inner bearing 25580 that has a 1.75 inch inner diameter. This hub will use the outer bearing 15123 that has an inner diameter of 1.250 inches, so you will want to confirm that your outer bearing matches this. This is a 6 on 5-12 galvanized hub and drum that includes the races and wheel bolts. For the...

  • Recommended Hub Assemblies, Wheels And Tires For 1993 Jayco Popup Camper
  • The hub and bearing kit I recommend for your Jayco popup camper is part # AKIHUB-440-2-2K. This kit includes the idler hubs, bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts. The hub has a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. The hub assembly kit you came from will not work with the spindle size you said you have on your trailer. We also have tire/wheel combos that will work with this hub assembly. The combo I recommend is part # AM31208HWT. This is a 12-inch radial tire/wheel combo with an aluminum...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hub that Gets Warms
  • If the bearings are good and the hub is greased properly that basically limits the issue to the brakes. How much drag can you feel as you turn the wheel by hand with the trailer jacked up in the air? It should feel like a light drag and turn easily. Do all hubs get warm or just the one? To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video. Basically you will adjust the brakes out so that there is a slight but...

  • How to Determine Bearing Dimensions to Select Replacement Trailer Hub
  • My bearing cross reference does not include the Bower bearing numbers BT1151 and T09074 so in order to see if we have a hub that uses compatible bearings you'll want to measure your spindles at the points C and D shown in the linked image. These are the points on the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride. You will need a precision digital caliper, one like # PTW80157 or # 301-17068, so that you can measure precisely to the nearest thousandth of an inch, such as 1.234-inches....

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hub/Drum that Gets Hot Ater New Bearings and Assembly Adjustment
  • If the adjustment and bearings are good you need to go in and check out what the inside of the hub drum looks like as it may have a wear issue that's causing heat to build up. While in there you'd want to check out everything in the brake assemblies too to make sure there's nothing broken or worn out as well.
