Cleaned and packed my bearings and all 4 brakes on my new to me trailer and did my first trip, 5 days from FL to VA and back, trailer and brakes did great!


Excellent customer service. Order was short two small seals I think they fell out of the box after some damage. I was contacted by etrailer to make sure order was ok. Told them about the shortage and they got them shipped out right away.


Excellent product, service and delivery. The new brake assemblies went on without a lot of difficulty, and are now in the "burn in" stage, and appear to be working well. Thanks etrailer!


Install these brake assy on my 2000 Coleman Utah popup camper very easy install 4 bolts and two wire ready to go. As you can see the brake really need replace. shoe lining fall off. Easy Install


Came on time. Staff was very professional and worked with me on delivery options since I am traveling in my golden years. They took the time to research after market parts as options. This is not my first time using E-trailer nor will it be my last. Prices are fair and delivery is quick.


Bought 4 sets of these never adjust brakes, converting my 7500 lb trailer from surge hydraulic to truck controlled electric. Easy bolt on and wire conversion. One note of caution: They are called never adjust but should be called "one time adjust". If you fail to get the shoes close to adjusted at install you might get "service trailer brake" notification, as I did. Adjusted the brakes until a slight drag was felt spinning the wheel and all's well.
Good price and fast delivery

Brakes still work great after one year and a few thousand miles. Way better than surge brakes, especially if youre backing up a hill.
Gary L - 10/07/2020


Made in USA product, first off. Form Fit Function, awesome. The product came lubricated ready to install with lithium grease on the friction areas. I ran these on my trailer for ten years. I never adjusted the brakes one time after the installation. I haul heavy, and often. These brakes are the best for your money. Etrailer is quick and courteous staff that changed my order over the phone per my request to add additional items to the order. This is an easy to wire in item. I solder in my connections, never had to go and do them again. Great part hope to get ten more years out of these ones too.

This product has been on my trailer for more than a year. They are broke in and stopping great. still no adjustment since the installation.

I have a five and half year old travel trailer with electric brakes. I noticed I had a hub that was intermittently getting hot. I know a little about bearings going bad but realized it was probably the brakes getting old and hanging up. I decided based on the price of these assembled backing plates that doing this full replacement on all four with new tires was good insurance. I order the stuff carefully (including new nuts and washers) on Sunday evening. It was delivered to my house on Friday afternoon all in good order. I had already taken the wheels to the tire store for replacement and removed the hubs. Saturday morning I started working and by the end of the afternoon I had new brakes, regreased bearings, replaced seals, and mounted new tires on my trailer. I did change the bearings on the hub that was getting hot. Just new seals on the others. The information on E Trailer made it easier to order online than to purchase at a local trailer parts house.


Brakes work great! I used a self tapping screw to ground the brake to the trailer. This worked really well and I didn't need to run a ground wire. The studs needed a trip to the hardware store to get some 7/16 by 40 pitch (fine thread) nylock nuts. All in all a nice brake setup.


The self adjusting brake we ordered for our 2013 Forest River Cherokee was delivered very quickly. The item delivered was exactly as described. It was installed today by our mechanic. I appreciate great value and great service.

The self adjusting brake that we ordered last year has met our expectations and is working well
Pam S - 05/24/2018


The break assembly was exactly what I was looking for. The first one I hit wasn’t the correct size but that was my fault. For some reason my trailer has 4400 lb axels but 3500 lb breaks. The four bolt pattern was the right size on the 3500 lb breaks. Pretty easy to install. I just need yo take it out for a drive to get the breaks adjusted.


Heads up!!
ordered 4 sets of hub, drums
and brakes over two years ago for a project I've been slowly working on. when I received the items, I noticed the packaging was damaged and reported it to etrailer. 2 years later, I finally went to use the items and discovered the bearings, caps and races had been damaged. I notified the management at etrailer and within a week had complete replacements.
What company in this day and age is willing to stand behind a damage claim two years on? Truly remarkable customer service and willingness to go the extra mile.
etrailer, You've won me forever as a devoted and satisfied customer. you guys are rock stars! Thank You.


Have had this loaded backing plate for 1 year now and will be purchasing again when needed they work flawlessly


I love dealing with etrailer! I can only say good things about the service, quick delivery, and products. I really like all the videos available for the products they sell. I received these brake assemblies very quickly and my son and I swapped out all four on my tool trailer including new hubs in less than 4 hours. They are working great. Thank you!


They went on fairly easy, adjusted well and seemed to work. They did work just not as well as I thought they would. I took a 5000 mile trip through mountains, all kinds of weather and down the highway and the trailer stayed behind. I haven't had time yet to check and see if the automatic adjustment was working by checking the adjustment. A lot easier to replace the complete unit than just parts which may have been wore out. I did the brakes, drums and bearings at the seem time.

Like I thought the automatic adjusters don’t work as well as the ones on my vehicles. They still need to be checked at least once a year.
Papaloco - 02/01/2018


Items arrived very quickly and in very good condition. I was pleasantly surprised at the great packing since I ordered 4 brake assemblies and misc parts too. I was able to install all 4 brakes in 2 hours and they fit perfectly.


Still working on getting the OLD units off the trailer on one side, so install is not complete - but did get one side finished and the fit was Perfect. I am very excited to have the new Nev-R-Adjust versions on the trailer, as adjusting the breaks never seemed to make it into my maintenance schedule.

Service was EXCELLENT, with the ONLY constructive suggestion being the "Packaging" of the shipment. Fortunately your double weight boxes held up, but there was No Packing placed under the parts, but loads of packing put on the top. This allowed the parts to beat around along the bottom of the box unprotected, and almost break through the cardboard along the bottom, but as mentioned, everything did arrive intact.

Thank you for the Prompt Shipment, Excellent pricing, and true US Made, OEM Parts - Not Cheep Off-Shore Immitation replacas!

Got my brakes in late May 2015. Same packing methodology. And green wires were crushed in spots. I actually pack college books I sell on Amazon better than the brakes were packed. So this comment feom 2012 still holds true. The job has been easy to accomplish regarding install. No brainer, just messy.

best and fastest shipping i ever received parts packaged very well all in good condishion

I just wanted to say the self adjust brakes I purchased worked without fail it was so easy my wife installed one side I did the other it was great working together I would also recommend watching video just as a refresher it had been many years since I had adjusted wheel bearings remember the old front hubs on chevy trucks we had to remove to do a brake job ? thanks again for the great videos ken and celeste Dixon and Harvey the jack Russell who licked the hubs clean lol

Thanks for coming back and following up with us. We had never of replacing brake assemblies as a his and hers project. The couple that turns wrenches together...

-- Etrailer Expert Patrick B - 3/20/2014


I am very happy with these replacement brake assemblies.
I needed to replace the brakes on my boat and I decided to upgrade them from surge breaks with the manually adjusted style to these self-adjusting ones. I did talk to 3 different trailer repair shops all replace surge with electric brakes and all stated the same that fresh water will not hurt or the brakes. Plus living in Colorado driving in the Mountains over heats surge brakes.

Remember to order new adjuster plugs since they do not come with these brake assemblies. Even though the pictures make them seem like they are included. Needless to say, I had to order some after-the-fact as I did not notice they were not included.

I could not get a screw driver or brake adjuster spoon tool to work around my drop spindles, so I just popped the hub off and tweaked the one brake assembly that seemed two tight when I did a test spin with the wheel in the air.

I had the old off and the new ones on in about 90 minutes per wheel.
I can tell the brakes are working well as when I manually apply them through the controller I can feel it pull on the vehicle and slow it down.

While electric brakes can work in marine applications, there are some things to be aware. Submersing the system in water exposes components to water that normally would not. This will cause electrical connections and components to corrode faster. Inspection and maintenance will need to be more frequent and some parts will have shorter service lives. Hydraulic is always our recommendation for marine applications whether paired with a surge coupler or with an electric-over-hydraulic pump. The latter would be a good solution for mountainous or hilly driving that cause brakes to overheat with surge systems.

I am very happy with these replacement brake assemblies.

I needed to replace the brakes on my camper and I decided to upgrade them from the manually adjusted style to these self-adjusting ones. Now I know my camper brakes will always be working at their best.

Easy to install on my AL-KO 3500# axles. Be sure to order the recommended mounting nuts so you do not need to reuse them. Remember to order new adjuster plugs since they do not come with these brake assemblies. Even though the pictures make them seam like they are included. Needless to say, I had to order some after-the-fact. My old ones used one plug each and these require two each. My old ones were aged enough that I did not want to reuse them.

They did not come with any electrical connectors, but that did not bother me since I used heat shrink butt connectors anyways.

It is just easier to get them adjusted close when you put the hubs back on. If you have drop spindles like me, you cannot tweak them through the adjuster holes. I could not get a screw driver or brake adjuster spoon tool to work around my drop spindles, so I just popped the hub off and tweaked the one brake assembly that seemed two tight when I did a test spin with the wheel in the air.

hey Matt Ive never used electric brakes nor have I ever used this new style you are talking of which is on the trailer that I am pulling do I need to set anything on my truck built in I have a brake controller do I need to set the numbers on it or is it just ditself
-- comment by: Dave E - 10/04/2014

A factory integrated brake controller will need to be adjusted for your particular trailer. There should be a section in the owner's manual on how to adjust the controller. It will need to be adjusted each time you tow a trailer of a different size or weight, unless it has programable memory settings. You may also need to adjust the brakes themselves on the trailer. Yolu want a slight, even amount of drag all the way around as you rotate the hub by hand.

The right parts, arrived quickly!


My 2012 travel trailer came equipped with 1-3/4” wide brakes, which is not a common size. When it was time to do maintenance I went to because of the wealth of information and advice available. After reading the information it became obvious that the best course of action would be to upgrade to 10 x 2-1/4” brakes and hubs. My supplies arrived in good shape, with the Dexter boxes inside of other boxes from etrailer. After watching helpful videos I installed the new brakes in a day. Things went smoothly, installing new complete brake sets is so much easier than messing around with individual parts, and probably about the same cost. Now came time to wear in the brakes and check things out. Beware that it is really tempting to not wait long enough for the brakes to cool in between evolutions where you apply them hard and go from 40 to 20 MPH. They can get pretty hot. The end result is that now we have much more braking power, the braking is smoother, and we have confidence in our ability to stop which is priceless. Not having to adjust our brakes is a plus. We are very pleased with our Dexter never adjust brakes and especially pleased with the exceptional customer service and expert advice from etrailer. Add in the price guarantee and dealing with them is truly a no-brainer.


This is the exact brake assembly that came on my trailer when it was new (18ft aluminum car hauler by R and R Trailers of Three Rivers MI) . Same part from the same manufacturer. I purchased 4 new ones because after 3 years of non-marine use, one of the brake linings came off and locked up one of the trailer wheels causing it to flat spot one of the tires bad enough to require the tire's replacement.

Shipping: I received them very quickly. But of the 4 assemblies ordered, 2 of them had damaged wiring due to poor packaging by the seller. I considered sending them back, but because I needed to use the trailer soon, I simply repaired the damaged wires and installed them.

Removal: This is not easy or fun. Each of the brake assemblies is held on with 4 mounting studs and nuts. These nuts are 7/16-20 i.e fine thread, which are not included. This wasn't really a problem except that these nuts were not in stock at my local Home Depot, Lowe's, or Tractor Supply. After driving all over the place looking for the mounting nuts, I finally found them at Fastenal. Removing the existing brakes was a nightmare. After soaking the existing mounting nuts in PB Blaster, I tried to remove them to find that they were so difficult to get off that they actually caused the studs to break free from where they had been pressed into the backing plate and just spin freely. Of the 16 mounting studs (4 studs x 4 brake assemblies) only 3 of them actually came off and the rest had to be cut off. This pretty much took all day to accomplish. Again, the existing trailer brakes were the *identical* brake assemblies that I purchased, but with 3 years of highway use. I would expect this much difficulty if it was on a boat trailer due to the regular submersion in water, but I would expect less corrosion on a car hauler.

Installation: Once I had cut off the existing brake assemblies, Installation was not very difficult. Before I mounted them, I took them down to my local welder and had him tack weld the studs in place so that they wouldn't break free from the backing plate when/if I ever needed to remove these again. I anti-seized the studs and mounted them to the trailer & connected the wiring. I had to reuse the star wheel access port plugs because they did not come with new plugs.

I think this is an ok product considering that these brake assemblies adjust themselves as the shoes wear down, and I find this greatly superior to the other method of having to adjust them yourself. I would actually still consider purchasing these brakes again, even after all that.

My complaints are as follows:

- shoe failure after 3 years of highway use resulting in tire failure
- damaged wiring due to poor packaging
- lack of mounting nuts and the difficulty in finding new ones
- lack of new access port plugs,
- *especially* the poor quality of the backing plate and studs

A product with a "made in USA" label just shouldn't have this many issues with it.


When it come's to finding parts for an old trailer, sometimes your left scratching your head. Not the case here, etrailer had everything required for some much needed maintenence on 70s vintage utility trailer.

This brake set is everything ilike needed it to be, fit the axles and brake drums, all new components, and at a great price. Easy wiring and installed in under an hour per axle.

The only thing keeping this review under 5 stars was the length of the wire leads from the assembly. It forces you to crimp a butt splice on your ground connect

  • Nev-R-Adjust Trailer Brakes are Not Locking Up After Re-packing Bearings
    There are a couple of things that caught my eye in your question. First, you mentioned taking the trailer to have the bearings packed.

  • Why Would Brand New Trailer Brakes Not Feel Strong
    Sounds like you installed new self-adjusting brakes and they aren't quite as strong as you'd think they would be. The simple explanation is that they just haven't tensioned themselves yet so they just need to be applied several more times so that they are the correct tightness to apply the brakes strongly. To speed this up you can go a parking lot speed with the trailer and hit the manual override lever of your brake controller several times. You'll feel them get stronger each time.
