Perfect replacement if you are experiencing fatigue failures on your brake hardware. Easy installation. 7000 miles since installing and no issues.




by:

This is a Dexter OEM brake assembly, so it was manufactured per Dexter spec's and quality control.




by:

Ordered the parts by phone. Melissa was highly knowledgeable and extremely professional. Would recommend eTrailer to anyone that needs trailer parts or trailer hitches.

I have more problems this is the place to get parts. Good information on the sight. Prices are right. Will shop here and tell all my friends.




by:

Always a pleasure doing business with etrailer.com.

Quality parts. Great customer service and ontime shipping and great communication




by:

Added brakes to my 6X10 Wells Cargo enclosed trailer. They are working great. Easy install. As always, new trailer brakes take some time to wear in before you get full "lock - up" level braking. I'd buy these again. As always, great order and order fulfillment experience with etrailer.




by:

Fit right on to the four axle bolts as expected so it was a drop in replacement for what I had.




by:

Great products and extremely fast shipping. Had excellent customer service with assisting me with what parts I needed to fit my application. Definitely will be recommended to contact Tim.




by:

Excellent fit and finish, as usual from Dexter. Installed on a Lippert 3500# axle with no problems.




by:

very happy with service and product

Came as described, packaged i a “ bulletproof” package & parts went on without a hassle. Delivery was quick. Only company to trust in trailer maintenence

Perfectly functioning, dead reliable product

I removed and reconditioned the axles on my snowmobile trailer. Salt corrosion damaged the brake assemblies. The replacements assemblies from etrailer.com bolted right on and made short work of the brake repair.

Still working just fine.

It is always a pleasure ordering from etrailer. Never have any problems with my orders. They have quality products, and tons of information and videos "by people who know what they are talking about" on their website. Great company to do business with.




by:

I bought a new car trailer with brakes on only 1 axle. etrailer had the exact same brakes for me to put on the second axle. These drum brakes were really easy to install, wire and adjust / re-adjust. I'd really recommend brakes on both axles if like me you're towing close to 7000lb. I've made a couple emergency stops around town, and didn't have the feeling i was being pushed by the trailer at all.
I'd also really recommend getting a high tech brake controller if you're buying one. I had a cheap one that really sucked, i had to constantly readjust brake power every time my speed varied (to stop being pushed by the trailer at speed or jerking to a stop at low speed). Annoying and dangerous IMO.




by:

Used these electric brake assemblies to replace the hydraulic units which became useless due to the master cylinder in the coupler becoming rusted and frozen up. Everything about the units was top notch and they bolted directly in place of the hydraulic backing plates. Shipping was fast with detailed follow up provided by Etrailer (probably the best of any internet company I've dealt with.)

Packaging was more than enough with more packing material and staples than was really required. ( 15 staples in the box ends alone where 5 would have been more than enough) Unfortunately, the assemblies were "nested" back to front into one another which caused the brake shoe of one unit to cut off the wire leads of the other. "Back to back" or "front to front" would have solved this issue which has happened to other customers. Additionally, the one plate had dust plugs for the brake adjuster provided while the other one had none. Both of these problems were minor but kept the experience from being totally outstanding.




by:

I ordered a complete brake kit for my 6x10 wells cargo trailer (backing plates wiring, hub assemblies, junction box). The items were not packed well and the brake wire got shredded by the hub assemblies during shipping. A quick call to eTrailer and a replacement cable was sent out right away - great customer service! Installation of this kit was a breeze thanks to the instructional videos available on the eTrailer website. All the items are of excellent quality and everything fit together perfectly. One small wish would be to include the lock washers and nuts (4 per side) that are required to mount the backing plate instead of having to order it a la carte.




by:

I installed these brakes as part of an upgrade and rebuild of a 20 year old trailer and so far they are working great!




by:

We bought bearings,seals,brakes and brake drums for our horse trailer as we travel around with are furry pet.We give a A+ for quality,service and price .will use trailer for all are future needs. Thank you

Just great.We bought wheel bearings,Brake shoes and drum.I just repacked the wheel bearings and everything looks new.Your great company and a good price 2 thumbs up and 2 happy horses.
Jim M - 10/08/2017


by:

I'm in the middle right now because 2 of the shoes had a fair size piece of the braking pad portion break away from the rest. They were very fast to send replacements so I have nothing but praise for that. I have done business with these people before and have had very fine experiences. I suspect this was just a fluke thing. I will order from here in the future.




by:

I completely rebuilt my trailer. The brake assemblies ordered were easy to install. It was much easier than trying to rebuild my existing brakes. The instructional videos from etrailer.com made the installation of the breakaway kit a breeze. Shipping was upgraded for free and received my order very quickly. It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer.com.




by:

OEM Made in USA and Dexter original. Exact fit. This is the best way to service brake systems especially on tandem axle applications. Great price, great service. Best with new nuts and lock washers and new Dexter drums and did I mention made in USA.




by:

Product was as advertised. Form, fit and function were excellant. Assembly was a breeze, especially with the non-polarity of the wires. Just bolt them on, plug them in, adjust them, and go. Recommend buyers also purchase the 4 nuts that hold each backing plate onto the trailer's mounting flange. They do not come with the assemblies, and 7/16 x 20 (fine thread) nuts are getting difficult to come by. I went to my local Lowes to purchase 16 nuts and lock washers for the 4 assemblies I purchased.. They only had 17 nuts in the entire store.




by:

Haven't been able to try them out yet, but they installed pretty easily, even for having never dealt with trailer brakes before. The only complaints I have are that the hardware and adjuster hole plugs were not included. Seriously, can't we add a buck on the price and throw them in?




by:

Excellent product, quality and customer service.




by:

Haven't installed yet but it looks good and installation looks straight forward. I'm commenting now though for how quickly I received the package. Got a shipped noticed the same day I ordered and received it 3 days before expected.

  • How to Pick Out Brake Assemblies for Terry Resort Fleetwood 5th Wheel Trailer
    Picking out brake assemblies for trailer axles is actually pretty easy but I am not able to determine the info I need from your trailer info since it's not something manufacturers keep records of. You do need to order a total quantity of 4 assemblies since To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things. You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need....

  • Do Electric Trailer Brakes Work in Reverse
    Electric trailer brakes will work slightly in reverse but due to how the mechanism works they don't grab as hard in that direction. That's just the nature of the design. Sounds like yours are set up properly though. Good news is that you won't be travelling that quickly in reverse so the need for powerful trailer brakes in that direction isn't nearly as important as forward.

  • Do Trailer Brake Magnets Touch Brake Drums All the Time
    A trailer brake assembly magnet is going to lightly touch the armature surface of the brake drum even when the brakes aren't applied. They basically glide along the smooth surface until you apply the trailer brakes which magnetizes them and then activates the braking mechanism to slow the trailer.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Stops Working When Brake Magnets Touch Drum
    Sounds like you might have a short to your trailer frame. You might use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test to see if there is voltage on the frame of the trailer due to a short by putting the positive probe on the frame and the ground probe to the ground pin of the trailer wiring on your truck. If you find that your frame is energized this would explain why the magnets touching the drums is causing an issue on your controller. This scenario would be caused most likely by the...

  • Weak Trailer Brakes With No Change After Rewiring Trailer
    If you are having issues with weak trailer brakes you will first need to start at the tow vehicle and test the trailer connector for voltage on the brake output wire. In order to do this properly you will need to turn the brake controller all the way up and apply the manual override. If you don't get a full 12 volts then you know the issue is on the vehicle. If the issues is on the vehicle then test the brake output wire directly behind the controller once severed. If you don't get 12 volts...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Trailer Brakes with New Magnets
    Most likely your trailer brakes are just out of adjustment. You will want to have the adjustment screw tightened to the point where the wheel locks up and then back it off 10 clicks. Check out the video I attached at the 4:25 mark to see the entire process.

  • Are Electric Brake Assemblies Compatible with Boat Trailers?
    Yes. Electric brake assemblies like the Dexter 10 inch # 23-27 you referenced can be added to a boat trailer that will be submerged. Some boat trailer manufacturers are even getting on board with the electric brake idea due to cost and function. You will want to note the trailer connector does need to be disconnected before your trailer wheels hit water as electricity and water do not interact well. This will protect your vehicle and trailer from electrical surge issues. Then you simply...

  • On Trailer Brake Assemblies Which Brake Pad Faces Towards the Front of the Trailer
    On the Dexter brake assembly part # 23-27 that you referenced the small pad would face towards the front of the trailer. This is a "right hand" assembly which means it goes on the passenger side of the trailer. If you check out the picture I attached you can also use the arm the magnet is held on as a way to tell too. If you imagine it as the head of an arrow it should always point to the front of the trailer.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes That Pulse and Get Hub Hot
    Changing the output setting of your brake controller should not change how the brakes react when the pedal isn't pressed. The controller should be putting exactly zero volts on your trailer brakes without the pedal pressed regardless of gain setting. Did you watch the display of the controller when the trailer was pulsing? Did it show anything like an output setting moving with the pulsing? My theory is there's a mechanical problem on assembly that's getting hot that's causing them to grab...

  • What Hardware is Included with Electric Brake Assemblies like Part # 23-27
    The studs are built into the assembly, but they are not shipped with nuts or washers. I would recommend using some sort of locking washer with a locking nut, nylon or otherwise, to make sure the assembly does not loosen.

  • Troubleshooting a Dragging Electric Brake on a Trailer
    It sounds like there is an electrical short on your trailer wiring that is activating your left rear brake assembly and that is why the brake continues to drag and get hot. Since you have swapped the brake assembly out and still had the problem you know the problem is not in the assembly but somewhere else on the trailer wiring. I would start at the wiring near the brake assembly and check for corrosion and loose or exposed wires and fix as necessary. You will want to trace this back up...

  • Poor Braking on Jayco 90 Pop-Top Camper Caused By Brake Assemblies on Wrong Sides
    From what you describe, it sounds like the brake assemblies you have are installed upside down or on the wrong side of the trailer. The magnet should be at the bottom of the brake assembly, as well as the brake adjuster. The semicircular bow that the magnet connects to should be on the side of the brake assembly closest to the front of the trailer, as shown in the photo of the drivers side brake assembly that I have edited for you. If the brake assemblies are on the wrong wheels, the mechanism...

  • Can 10 x 2-1/4 Inch Electric Trailer Brakes be Used in Place of 10 x 1-1/2 Inch Brakes
    You will need to measure the width of the inside of the drum where the pad makes contact with the drum to determine if you can go to the wider 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies. If you cannot then you would also need to change out the hub and drum. To do that I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. If the hub is wide enough then you can use the 10 x 2-1/4 inch assemblies # 23-27 for the right side and # 23-26 for the left. It is also...

  • Trailer Brakes Not Performing Well After Installing New Brake Assemblies and Drums
    The fact that a trailer brake won't lock doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. For best braking, you do not want the brakes to lock up. A skidding tire doesn't provide optimal braking. However, if you can get things adjusted so that the brakes apply to a degree just short of lock up, you'll have the most effective braking possible. Since you have new hubs and brake assemblies, you shouldn't need to sand anything. Since the magnets are getting 12 volts, the most likely cause of what...

  • How Do You Know When Trailer Brake Pads/Drums Need to Be Replaced
    You would know to replace brake shoes the same way you would know with a vehicle. If performance is suffering and adjusting the brakes does not help and there are no other issues causing the poor performance it is probably time to change the brake shoes. Some shoes that have pads that are riveted on should be replaced once the pad wears down to that rivet. When you have the hub off the axle inspect the inside of it. Does it look torn up where the magnet rides or where the brake pads touch...

  • Selecting Trailer Wheels, Tires and Brakes for Off-Road Teardrop Trailer
    Vehicle wheels can have different offset than trailer wheels. Offset is any difference between a wheel's center line and the mounting surface. Positive offset moves the tire closer to the trailer frame and negative offset moves it away. This is why only special trailer wheels are recommended for use on a trailer. Similarly, only special trailer (ST) tires are recommended for use on trailers; passenger vehicle tires should not be used on a trailer, or vice versa. I linked for you our main...

  • Troubleshooting Low Voltage Output on Brake Controller with Brake Pedal and Override Lever
    Is the gain on the controller set all the way up? If it's set to 3.5v as the max that's as far as it will go with the lever or the brake pedal. Try maxing out all of the adjustment setting to see if that changes anything. What brake controller do you have? What vehicle is it? You have done most of the troubleshooting steps that are recommended so this is a tough one. Hopefully it's as simple as just adjusting the brake controller to a more aggressive setting.

  • Availability of 10-Inch Electric Drum Brake Assemblies to Fit 4-Bolt Mounting Flange
    All 10-inch electric brake assemblies we offer can be seen on the linked page. These are all for 10 x 2-1/4-inch drums and all use an integrated 4-bolt mounting scheme. You can find 5-bolt mounts in the 12 x 2-inch size but not the 10-inch diameter brakes. The second link will show you 12 x 2-inch brakes that do have a 5-hole mount. Some of these have a dual mounting hole pattern that can fit both 4- and 5-bolt flanges. You might double-check your hub/drum interior dimensions and then...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Showing Not Connected When Trailer Is Connected
    Since you did not say what the age of the brake controller is the first thing I recommend is to connect the trailer. Go to the rear of the vehicle and make sure the vehicle side connector is receiving 12 volts. If it is not then sever the blue wire at the back of the controller about 4 to 5 inches from the controller. Use a voltmeter and test the blue wire coming from the back of the brake controller. Slide the manual gain all the way. It should read about 12 volts. If it does not there...

  • Troubleshooting Low Voltage Output from Brake Controller
    Something is obviously causing a voltage drop between the brake controller and the trailer connector. The usual culprit in this type of situation is a break in the wire or a corroded wire. Check the wiring under the truck. You should be able to trace the trailer connector wires from the back of the trailer connector up toward the front of the truck. Look for any sections that look like they may have been pinched, frayed or even eaten through. If there are any wires spliced in or quick splices,...
