How to Pick Out Brake Assemblies for 2017 Forest River Rockwood Trailer


I have 2017 Forest River Rockwood travel trailer, 35 ft. Has Dexter axles - 5957430 sn 121044055, also has number D010C-000825 and 847635-3 numbers on it. Says 5000 pound capacity. These numbers dont seem to match up to anything. Im guessing these are 10Inch brakes. They are Never-adjust and EZ-Lube. Im looking for brake parts. Any way to nail down what is on this axle? tnx

None of the numbers you mentioned cross reference with any trailer parts but there are basically two options you may have since 5,000 lb axles are not standard. You either have 12 inch assemblies and need the part # AKEBRK-7-SA for both the left and right hand side or you have 10 inch assemblies and need # K23-478-479 for both sides.

I am inclined to believe you have a 12 inch setup and need the # AKEBRK-7-SA but you'd want to measure first to be sure. I attached a picture that shows where you'll need to measure then.

Both setups I mentioned are sefl-adjusting as well.
