The disc brakes will deliver better performance than drum brakes, gives you more consistent stopping even at highway speeds and dramatically shorter stopping distances. Also the maintenance costs are lower than for drum brakes, because you have fewer moving parts to maintain repair or replace.Now, this kit will include everything I got laid out here on the table. It's two full brake assemblies, so they get the two E-coated cast iron slip on rotors, the two E-coated cast iron calipers, the two E-coated ductile iron caliper mounting brackets, and then the four stainless steel caliper mounting bolts.If you notice all these parts have an E-coat finish on them, the calipers, the brackets provides a nice corrosion resistance for freshwater and limited saltwater use. more

etrailer Electric Trailer Brakes Installation on a 2017 Grand Design Reflection Fifth Wheel

Hi there trailer owners, today on your 2017 Grand Design Reflection, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install etrailer's Electric Trailer Brake Kit. This is what your brake assembly is going to look like once you've got installed.Some of the features on this assembly that really stand out to me that make it better than some of the competitors is the shoes that are located on each side. They're going to be fully bonded shoes, so there're no rivets. Some of the other shoe manufacturers out there we'll place rivets that hold the friction material on. And the problem with the rivets, it does hold the pads on very nicely. But when your shoes wear down, eventually the material is going to wear it down into the rivets, which can then dig into your drum assembly and destroy the entire drum assembly with the bonded pads here, the material will wear down and it'll have to get all the way down to the metal here before that would happen. more

So our Kodiak disc brake kit here features a two piece design. Now what's two paced design means is that the rotor is going to be separate from the idler hub. And normally the rotor and idler hub are actually going to be combined in one. I prefer this two piece design here because it's going to make it a lot more cost effective to replace something if it goes wrong. more

Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. And today we're going to be taking a look at the Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit. This is going to be for the right-hand side, or your passenger side, on your trailer. The reason why you'd want to replace the whole drum brake on your assembly is to make sure that everything's going to be wearing the same. That way you don't have to worry about your brake shoes failing before any of your other components in your kit, you don't have to get in there and do maintenance six months down the road. It's all going to be fresh, and new, and ready to go. more

Review of Hydrastar Trailer Brakes - Disc Brakes for Triple Axles - HSE7K-TR1

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and today we're going to be taking a look at the HydraStar disc brake kit. This is going to come in a couple of different configurations, and I'll go over more specifically what comes in each kit later on in the video. But this'll be available for your single, your tandem, and your triple axle trailers.Basically the reason why you'd want to get this kit is because it's going to give you the hub and rotor assemblies to replace the old brakes on your trailer and give you a new disc brake and caliper system. The advantage with that is that we're going to have a lot more stopping power for our trailer. If you've ever hauled one down the road, you can know that those hub and drum assemblies, that older style, typically you're going to have a longer distance to travel to get that trailer to stop fully and it's just not as safe. more
