Video Transcript for Demco Trailer Brakes 23511 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Demco Galvanized 12 Inch Marine Brake Assembly, part number 23511. This is a 12x2 galvanized hydraulic brake assembly. It's referred to as a 12x2 due to its dimensions which is from here to here is 12 inches and the width of the break shoe is two inches.It has galvanized backing plates, stainless steel spring hardware plated wheel cylinders, riveted marine brake shoes and this also works great on non-marine applications as well. It has a weight capacity of 6,000 pounds per pair or obviously 3,000 pounds for each assembly. This fits on your left hand side of your trailer, the driver's side. It says the word "left" right here but another way to tell is the short shoe always faces to the front of the trailer.It is a single servo which means it has a single plunger coming from the wheel cylinder.

It uses 12 inch hub and drums with wheel sizes of 14-1/2 inches to 16 inches. The mounting bolts are sold separately and this item does require a periodic manual adjusting. What that means is that you can see right here it has rubber plugs that fit over the adjustment holes. Whenever its time to adjust you just pop these out and make your adjustments through there.That should do it for our Demco Galvanized 12 Inch Marine Brake Assembly, part number 23511.

I have ordered items from etrailer before never a problem,this was before Covid and all the other problems since then this order took way longer to receive but I am thank-full they had what I wanted and was able to get it shipped to me I will still do business with them.




by:

worked perfect on my 6000lb loadrite trailer. I added extra grease to the wheel cylinder bolts and adjuster threads. I'll be dunking it in saltwater.




by:

One Year Follow-Up - This was an extremely simple and cost effective option to repair my trailer brakes. One side had been contaminated by a leaky grease seal, but I replaced the brake assemblies, seals, bearings, and races on both sides of my single axle fresh water boat trailer at the same time. I estimate about 3000 miles on this trailer since installed and everything is still working great.




by:

The Drum Brake Assembly was extremely great. The backing plate and the cylinder are plated so they will not rust or corrode. The springs are stainless steel so they will not corrode. They fit on my axle very good. I had no problem with them. They work just like when the trailer was new.




by:

Perfect fit for my trailer axle and hub. Quality construction and easily a match for parts I purchased the week prior costing quite a bit more. Buy with confidence.




by:

Replaced 23 year old brake assembly with this and it was a perfect fit. All of the components were installed on the assembly as described - just bolt on, attach brake line,bleed and go.




by:

Great price, and was easy to install. Looking forward to many safe stops. The demo videos were most helpful.

Review from a similar Demco Single Servo 12 Inch in Accessories and Parts


I had no idea that I could purchase an entire brake assembly - ready to bolt on! The local trailer dealers wanted $98 per wheel, just for the shoe lining alone. I saved over 60% and got all new parts. Put them on today, bled the brake lines, and went to pick up a skidsteer loader. Everything works perfectly. I will not buy trailer parts anywhere else from now on.

  • Why Do Demco Hydraulic Brake Assemblies Have Brake Linings Riveted to the Brake Shoes
    Riveting the linings on brake shoes on hydraulic brake assemblies was historically the industry standard, while electric brake assemblies typically have the pads glued or bonded into place. All Demco could tell me is that they rivet all of their brake linings. I also spoke with folks at Dexter. I was told that in the past the adhesives used to bond the linings on the shoes were unable to withstand harsh marine environments. If water should penetrate between the shoe and the lining, rust...

  • How To Check if Trailer Surge Brakes Are Working Properly On Tandem Axle Boat Trailer
    Checking the brakes can be done in two ways. The easiest way is to raise one side of the trailer and spin the wheels while someone applies the surge brakes at the coupler. The better way would be to remove each of the wheels and brake drums and activate the brakes while making sure the wheel cylinders and brake assemblies are functioning properly. After this the first thing I would do is bleed the brakes using the trailers surge coupler to force the fluid from the brake lines and make...

  • Correct Hydraulic Brake Assembly for Dexter 8-201 Hub/Drum
    The Dexter 8-201 is a common 12 x 2 inch hub/drum used on 5,200 or 6,000 lb capacity axles. The 23-324 left hand hydraulic brake assembly you mentioned would certainly be compatible. You would also need the right hand assembly, part # 23-325. For a marine application, I would recommend the Demco 12x2 Marine Hydraulic Brake Assembly, part # 23510 for the right side, and # 23511 for the left. These brake assemblies feature galvanized backing plates and stainless steel spring hardware.

  • Why Are New Hydraulic Brakes Getting Hot and Smoking
    It sounds like you installed the Demco Hydraulic Brake Kit # 23511-10 correctly but it is possible you may have adjusted them a bit too aggressively, as "slight drag" is subjective, of course. Otherwise there could be an issue with your drum assembly if it is on the older side. If the assembly is at all warped or slightly corroded that can be an issue. Another problem may be that the hub needs to be properly greased and the bearings packed with Bearing Grease # L11390 and a bearing packer...

  • Brakes for Home Built Trailer With 7K Axle and 12 x 2 Drum
    For a 7K axle with 12 X 2 inch drum, we have the # AKFBBRK-7L (left) and # AKFBBRK-7R (right) that you refer to. These are free-backing hydraulic drum brake assemblies designed for use with a surge-type trailer brake actuator.

  • Timbren Axle-Less System That Uses Hubs With 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Since you need hubs with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern, the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System you would need to use is # TASR7KS01, which is rated for 7,000 lbs. The hubs that fit these Timbren's are the Dexter # 42866UC3-EZ, and the brakes to go with would be the Demco Galvanized # 23511-10, which are 12" x 2" and fit 14.5" to 6" wheels. I've added links to a couple video reviews on these parts for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Replacement Axles For Tandem Axle Boat Trailer
    As long as the frame itself can handle the additional weight, you would need to upgrade all of the other components under that weight capacity including the coupler. I recommend using the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension - Spindle Only - Regular Tires - 5200 lbs # ASR5200S01. This will allow your to simply remove the existing suspension and axles and add a cross beam or add a piece of 2x3 inch tubing between the axles in the integrated holes. With these spindles, you can use the Trailer...
