Quick Tip: There's really not a whole lot to getting new drum brakes. If you've confirmed that all of the specs listed above line up with what you need for your trailer, you can be pretty sure these will work for you.


Automotive-Grade Brake Pads

The pads on these trailer brakes are made of the same friction material that you might find on a car's drum brakes. In fact, the material is SAE-N certified. So, not only does it provide high-performance braking, but it's environmentally friendly, too! With these brakes, your trailer will be good to go on any road throughout the United States and Canada.


The superior quality of these pads is also due to the fact that they're bonded to the shoes, not just nailed down. Riveted brake pads will always give you a screeching reminder to replace your brake shoes. That's because the rivets will scrape against your drum as the friction material wears down. You won't have that noisy problem with bonded brake pads. You'll also get a little more friction pad contact because there aren't any cutouts for rivets. And more friction means more stopping power.


A closeup shot of an etrailer drum brake shows a tapered brake pad.

These pads are also tapered, which should help to prevent any broken, crumbly bits of material from rotating inside the drum as the pads wear over time. Brakes without these tapers are more likely to create a jarring braking experience that could cause the brakes to stutter and lock up.


How to Manually Adjust Trailer Brakes

The more miles you put on your trailer, the more your brake pads will wear down. As they lose contact with the drum, stopping distances get longer and longer. To keep your brakes working great, it's important to adjust them pretty routinely. For this job, grab a floor jack and either a brake adjustment tool (sold separately) or just a standard flathead screwdriver.


Jack up your trailer enough to get the wheel(s) off the ground. Remove the adjuster plugs from the backing plate on the brake, and insert the flat end of the tool through the back of the assembly.


Screenshot from an instruction video shows how to manually adjust the the alignment on a drum brake

Push in on the star gear and lift it up. Keep doing this until the brake pads catch on your drum. When you can't spin your wheel by hand anymore, back the gear off by about 10 clicks by pushing down on the star gear. Does the wheel now spin freely (even if it sounds like the brake pads drag slightly on the drum)? Great! Then you're all done with that one and ready to adjust the rest.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have also been tested by QAI for braking performance under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday tower.


How to Break In New Brakes

After you get these brakes installed and adjusted, you'll need to break them in. First, find a long stretch of road or a big, empty parking lot. Once you're there, set your brake controller to its maximum setting and get moving. Speed up to about 40 mph and brake to slow to about 20 mph. Repeat this 15-30 times. The goal is to get the brake shoes and magnet properly seated into your drum. You'll know you've done that when it feels less jerky (and more consistent) each time you apply the brakes.


Note: The brakes will be very hot after doing this, so after every 10 stops you'll want to wait about 10 minutes to let the brakes cool off before continuing. If you don't, you might cook and crack the pad material.

Fantastic. The new brakes are awesome and have kept our camping trips across the North East US safe and secure. They were a cinch to install and are working as desired. Thank you



by:

I did not get a chance to try the brakes because of the condition they arrived in. the brakes where thrown in to a box raw, there was no individual packaging and no padding. The brakes banged around in the box and chipped the brake lining, making them useless. the banging around broke free the springs and pieces where lost through holes in the poorly boxed package. VERY disappointed.

Oh my goodness! I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.



by:

Brakes look great, but they were packeged by a four year old, resulting in the box being punctured, and the brake parts rattling around, to the extent that two of the four pair arrived missing parts. The springs rattled off, the adjusters rattled out, and parts fell out of the box. To their credit, a return label was issued promptly, and replacements sent right away. But still. Don't they ship items like this every day, hundreds of times a day?



by:

I can’t honestly rate these shoes due to the failure of the shaft seals in the new brake drums I also purchased. As of now my brake shoes will not stop my trailer after cleaning the grease saturated shoes.

Once you get the correct seals set up, we would love to hear your updated feedback.

I ordered these to replace the original brakes on my trailer after I started having problems with mine (see details below if interested). They are good quality and were easy to mount and assemble. They definitely made a difference in how well my trailer is braking. I definitely recommend these if they are what you need.

However, I will say that the shipping was delayed by about 4 days. This may not be etrailer's fault, but they use UPS and I've been having horrible luck with UPS's shipping service lately. Everything has been delayed. So just be aware that if you order with the standard ground with UPS these will most likely not arrive on time.

The second problem that I had was that I ordered a set of drum/hub combos to go with these on a separate order. After 2 days of seeing no progress on my order I had to email and call to find out that the order was delayed. There was no update from etrailer without me asking. I ended up having to cancel that order and purchase through a local supplier whom I will likely start using from now on.

To detail the braking problems, I purchased my 2008 Toy Hauler about two months ago. We've towed about 1,200 miles with it so far and I noticed from day one that the brakes weren't as responsive as they should be. As we were entering our neighborhood from our last trip my Tekonsha Prodigy 3 started flashing red and reading that there was a shortage and that I had a brake overload and that there were no brakes. This was fairly spiritic but eventually became constant. Based off of information I found from posts on this site, it seemed like it might be one of the magnets not making sufficient contact with the drum. It seems like this was the case. During my repair, I found that one of my grease seals had blown and grease had gotten into one of the brake assemblies and it looked like that entire hub/assembly/etc. had stopped working properly. After replacing the entire brake assembly, drum/hub, bearings and seals on all four wheels everything is working great! I probably only needed to replace the brake assemblies, but decided that for another $350 I would have peace of mind knowing that everything is at it's best!

Thanks etrailer for the helpful information and quality parts!



by:

Brakes were great fit right in . Would pay xtra in the future if they came with the grade 8 bolts also almost always old bolts are unusable



by:

They came in a timely manner. Installation was simple and the customer service was optimal.



by:

The assembly's are definitely quality pieces as usual with etrailer, but the packing is hands down the worst I've ever seen. I ordered 4 complete brake units, and when I opened the box every one of them had banged around enough that they were totally disassembled. The box they were in was 2'x3'x8" with one piece of tissue paper. I will definitely continue to use etrailer because of the price and quantity of the parts, but I will definitely talk to someone about packaging before I order.



by:

Sheila was very helpful and all the parts fit right and worked great. Would definitely order again. Every part I've ever order from e-trailer worked exactly as expected.



by:

My order came damaged. I feel you should not have to wait 22 minutes on hold to talk to a customer service person. I have tried calling many times and the wait time is almost the same. I do not have the time to wait. I guess I am going to buy local since the cost wasn’t too different. I guess it is only about the money. There’s no such thing as quality anymore.

Great affordable brakes. Adjusted them and tested them out and they work great. Using a trailer brake controller in the truck as well and have no complaints yet. Towed about 5k miles on this system so far. I saw a ton of those advertisements for wires that have heat shrink and are waterproof and you don't need to solder. Saying when you apply heat to them, it melts the solder. Tested them out and they actually work great and are waterproof.

Changed out all four brakes on my FW. E Trailer brand brake kit is well made and just as good as the costly name brand. After a year and about 6k miles brakes are fine no problems at all.

These were exact fit, easy to replace and would definitely recommend. Definitely invest in the brake spoon tool ( bought one with my order) for adjusting these after the wheel is back on. Definitely worth it and etrailer nailed it again. In the photo, the axle on the right is the new brake assembly and the one on the left..... well that is the reason I bought four new brake assemblies!!!!! Thanks.

Ordered complete brakes and bearings for 8 wheel 16 ton trailer. All mounted up very nicely and I am very pleased with the result. In addition to bearings and brakes I also replaced the lights and added a new 7 pin plug incl a new battery and emergency trailer brake and wirebox. I had never done any of these repairs before, but followed the tutorial videos on e-trailers site. Very happy with result and will recommend e-trailers to anyone that need trailer stuff. Keep up the good work. Thanks.



by:

Good customer service, on time delivery, packaged arrived as ordered. And bonus they followed up with personal email for questions



by:

First, your representation of the price of the Brake Kit is completely deceptive. The kits for my 2016 Keystone Cougar were represented to be approximately $[XX]. There was no mention or indication that this price was a per axle price. I ordered the kits thinking I would get enough kits for my tandem axle trailer, and only got to kits enough for one axle. That is, to me, deceptive and predatory priceing. If you advertise that these are the kits for a specific trailer, then you should price and ship enough kits to complete the job. Again, I consider your representation of the kits price as deceptive and predatory. I ordered a second set of kits simply because I was in a hurry to complete my brake job...not because I was satisfied. In the future I hope your price reflects to other consumers that the price is per axle, and not enough for specific trailers as I found out.

Second, when I talked with your representative Kate, who was very courteous, she said my order would be delivered on a Wednesday. When I received the email order and shipping confirmation, the delivery date changed to Thursday. When I received the second set of kits, the box was damaged and almost falling apart. Your shipping people did not put padding on both upper and lower parts in the box. As a result, when I received the kits, the adjusting bolt and spring were off of the one set. Had the box opened a little more, the parts would have been lost. The other fact is that I had to personally reinstall the adjuster and spring on to the shoes. More care in packing would have elimited this problem.

Third, I will not purchase anything else from E-brake Co., and I will warn my friends of my problems with you and your predatory pricing structure. My project should have been completed over a week sooner that it is going to be.

The brake kits seem to be of a very good quality. Your business qualities, to me, are not.

It took me a while to get to this project. The parts came much sooner than I expected. I was able to completely overhaul my trailer brakes in about 8 hours or, maybe less. The parts all worked great. The staff was SO very helpful in making sure I got the right parts. I really cant wait to use them again!!!



by:

Besides the packaging of the items which was terrible had a few minor issues that was taking care of in one phone call.



by:

Etrailer always has the brake assembly’s we need at our shop no matter if it’s one set or 36 sets! Always fast shipping

Great product no issues so far.

  • Replacement Brakes for a 2011 Jayco Jay Flight G2 32BHDS
    It looks like the gross weight rating of your Jayco Jay Flight G2 32BHDS is 9,950 pounds. I am thinking that it has two 5,200 pound axles OR two 4,400 pound axles because they assume the tow vehicle is supporting 13 percent of the trailer tongue weight. If they are 5,200 pound axles then you would need 12 inch brakes with a 5 bolt mounting pattern such as # AKEBRK-6. If they are 4,400 pound axles then you would need 10 inch brakes with a 4 bolt mounting pattern such as # K23-462-463-00. You...

After installation, you'll either need to initially adjust the brakes, or do several low speed runs in a parking lot to actuate the bakes, about 15-20 times. After that, the brakes will keep themselves in adjustment. The # AKEBRK-7-SA is a qualified replacement for Lippert,...

We have our Standard Brakes # AKEBRK-6 or the Self-Adjusting Brakes # AKEBRK-7-SA which require less maintenance since they will adjust themselves as they wear. You will need 2 of the Hub/Drum Assemblies # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K for the spindle. These will have the 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and works with 14-1/2" to 16-1/2" diameter wheels.
