Determining Weight Capacity of Dexter Mobile Home Axle Using Serial Number


SN 0 7409694 what is this axel rated


Expert Reply:

I reached out to my contact at Dexter and with the serial number you provided was able to get some specs on your trailer axle. What you have is a 6,000 pound mobile home idler axle that features an 82.15 inch spring seat length and a 96.13 inch track length.

It is important to note that mobile home axles are really only designed and built to be used one time. If this is what you have on your trailer I highly recommend replacing it with a standard trailer axle. We don't have any axles that match the above-mentioned dimensions but we do have the 7K Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System # TASR7KS01 that might be a good option.

The Timbren Axle-Less system can be installed on any frame width and its progressive spring will replace the traditional leaf spring setup. This 7K system will work perfectly with the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly # 42866UC3-EZ and the Left # 23-105 and Right # 23-106 Electric Brake Assemblies.

I have attached an installation video as well so you can see exactly how this system works.
