I ordered these brakes on Tuesday they arrived at my house (in southeast Texas) on Friday (free shipping). These brakes heavy duty and a breeze to install. I paid twice as much for brakes I had bought before, locally. Good job ETrailer!!!!

Part was a great price, delivered quickly. Outstanding communication and customer service from etrailer.

EXCELLENT...... START TO FINISH. Fantastic service, great prices, quality products. Here's a before and after picture. It only took 30 minutes and basic tools to make the replacement. So much better than trying to clean up the old rusty one. Thanks again, Bill Borland in Michigan




by:

I bought 2 sets of 12x2 electric brake assembly for my car hauler. I was just going to replace the shoes but after remembering the difficaulty in doing drum brakes in the early days, I found it easier and less time consuming by just remove 5 bolts and connect two wires. This product came to my door with in only 3 days. Great looking product (no picture because i"m writing this after the install).
I have been back to etrailer several time for other items such as hitch shank, wheel center caps even grease caps. Great place to shop.

Brakes were a perfect match for my camper and a simple bolt up. Thank you Anthony W. For making sure I got the right parts

This product was good




by:

The new brakes work well on my trailer. However, when I replace them next time I will spend the extra $$ to get the self adjusting version.




by:

Brakes arrived very quickly and looked very good. One spring and adjustment rod came off during shipping, but the pieces were there and easily installed. I haven't installed them yet, but am very happy with product at this point.


Comments
am still very pleased with these brakes. They have performed great with no problems to date.

I am writing this very favorable review of my online shopping experience with etrailer. Recently I had to replace the brakes, hubs, wheels and tires on my travel trailer. Please keep in mind that I am a 65 year old man without a lot of experience with online shopping. Never-the-less, I decided to give it a try in hopes of saving some money. To my surprise, etrailer made the experience very easy and painless. Before I placed my order on line, I had a question about one of the items on my shopping list, so I placed a call to them. I spoke with a very lovely and patient Customer Service Representative by the name of Michelle S. She was very helpful in answering my questions and encouraged me to call her back directly when I was ready to place my order; and so I did. During the shipping process, she kept me informed through emails the status of my order and everything arrived on time and in great shape. I truly appreciate the personalized services I received doing business with etrailer. They truly removed all of the uncertainty and nervousness of shopping online.




by:

Unfortunately, one of the 4 brakes came with the spring and adjuster shaft on the bottom of the box. I put them back on without too much trouble but etrailer should review the product packaging in order to protect the brakes from damage. The install needs shrink tubing style crimp connectors. Mine required sizes for 16 to 18 gage and one size up for joining 3 wires where one wire crosses over thru the axel from the left to the right side. Also there are two adjuster plugs per brake so a total of 8 plugs are required for 4 brakes. Once installed they worked great.




by:

Everything went well with the installation. Working with etrailer made things happen. Thanks etrailer.




by:

Jim, it was a pleasure to talk. You went over and above to look at what was needed to fill my needs. Delivery was great as always. Look forward to future orders




by:

The right and left hand brake were very easy to install and came with everything needed. The only problem after install, is that the left hand break gave off a buzzing sound while brakes were not engaged...adjusting the arm as suggested by your technicians to the electric magnet did not help...there was little engagement from magnet to drum while brake were not engaged, that i decided to go the 8k miles anyway, checking every night stop...it still has the buzzing sound and I will need to replace.

  • Which Brake Drum is Used with Dexter # 23-105 and # 23-106 Brake Assemblies
    There are hubs/drums available for the # 23-105 and # 23-106 brake assemblies. You'll want to go with a 12 x 2 drum, and you'll want to choose one that has bearing compatible with your existing spindle and a lug and bolt circle pattern that's compatible with your existing wheels. If you'd care to reply with your inner and outer bearing reference numbers and the number of lugs and the bolt circle of your wheels, I'd be happy to make specific recommendations.

  • Troubleshooting Intermittent Electric Brake Connection
    It sounds like there is a loose connection somewhere since the issue only happens when you accelerate. The first step I would take would be to inspect the grounds on the trailer. Check the ground for the trailer connector and the grounds for the brake magnets. Make sure they are free of corrosion and secured to a clean bare surface on the trailer frame. If the trailer has a poor ground connection, then it may try to ground through the trailer ball, which could explain why the connection...

  • Trailer Brakes Actuate Immediately When Trailer is Plugged in to Vehicle
    I have a suspicion about what might be causing the problem you mention. Do your trucks have 6-way trailer connectors? Or, do the trucks have 7-way connectors, but you are using a 6-way to 7-way adapters because the trailers use 6-way connectors? There are two accepted ways of wiring a 6-way trailer connector. One uses the center pin as the brake voltage output circuit, the other uses the center pin as the 12-volt accessory circuit. If the truck is wired one way, and the trailer or the...

  • Brake Controller Install on 2007 Sierra Causing Mirror Display and Interior Lights to Malfunction
    My best guess is that during the installation, something under the dash was inadvertently dislodged. The tow package wiring and the interior lamp and power mirror temperature display circuits are not related in any way, so either something was accidentally unplugged or the malfunctions you mentioned are merely coincidental. Just to make absolutely sure I hadn't missed anything, I checked with my contact at Tekonsha. He could think of no possible way a brake controller installation could...

  • One Wheel On Trailer Locks Up After Installing New Electric Brakes
    You would not want the brakes to lock up the wheels on your trailer. In addition to adjusting the brakes as shown in the video, you will also need to adjust your brake controller. Also, when adjusting and setting the brakes, you will want to do so on pavement, not on dirt. To adjust your brake controller, first unplug it for a few minutes for it to reset. Then, you will want to warm up the trailer brakes using the manual slide lever on your brake controller a few times. Using the manual...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up when Day Time Running Lights are On for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If you are using a brake controller then the likely cause is that the brake controller red wire is not in the right place in the harness used to plug into the truck. I have included a picture that shows where all the wires needed to be for you. If you do not have a brake controller then the likely issue is a short of some kind in the trailer connector either on the truck or the trailer. You will need to make sure that both are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. You will also want...

  • Left-Side Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Slowing Down Using New Electric Brake Controller
    Since the right side trailer brakes on your new HandH trailer seem to be working correctly the issue is likely to be simply a matter of adjustment to the drivers-side brake assemblies. Electric brakes like the units you referenced # 23-106 have a star-shaped adjustment wheel under the magnet. This can be used to set the braking pressure. The linked video shows at the 4:26 mark how to do this.

  • Trailer Disc Brakes are Slow to Release on Dual Axle Boat Trailer with BrakeRite Actuator
    The system may be getting enough of an electrical signal to apply the brakes a little. Make sure you have the brake controller properly adjusted and lower the gain or power output as needed. Check all wiring connections for loose connections, clean ground locations (clean away any corrosion) and any exposed copper strands that may be causing a short. The brakes should lock up if you have pulled the break away pin out. If it is not doing so then the likely culprit is the breakaway system,...

  • Trailer Axle or Electric Brakes Locked Up While Driving and Other Axles Did Not Lock
    When you say it locked up to you mean the brakes locked up or the hub will not spin? If it is the brakes then I suspect that there is an electrical problem with the wiring to the brakes on that axle or the magnets themselves. Inspect the wiring and look for any exposed copper strands and fix as needed. Make sure the wiring is not pinched. Also make sure the grounds are attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. It also would not work to check the vehicle and trailer side...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Lights Up without Trailer Connected
    It sounds like your brake controller display will light up when it detects that it is connected to a trailer. If now it is lit up without a trailer connected that would indicate that there is most likely corrosion on the brake output circuit of your trailer connector. Check out the trailer connector looking for any corrosion and clean as necessary. Look on the inside and back of the connector for this. In some cases moisture can cause the issue you are describing as well. Allowing the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Assembly that Intermittently Works
    Sounds like the ground circuit of the left rear brake assembly isn't making a solid connection and is only working intermittently. I would double check to make sure it is connected to a clean metal surface and/or run a jumper wire from the assembly to the main ground of the trailer to see if that makes it work more consistently. You can also check the power wire for the assembly as well to make sure it's making a solid connection to the assembly.

  • Troubleshooting Weak Trailer Brake Assembly on a Tandem Axle Trailer
    It is possible that the one brake assembly isn't grounding as well as the others and that is why it is not braking as hard as the others. Trying running a jumper wire from the ground to the main ground of the trailer harness. Or it could be that the brake assembly is out of adjustment. Check out the video (see link). Beginning at the 4:23 mark, our installer shows how to adjust your trailer brakes.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Trailer 7-Way is Attached to Tow Vehicle
    It sounds like you have shorted the brake output circuit of the new trailer 7-way with the 12 volt power circuit and that is causing the trailer brakes to stay on all the time. The best recommendation I have would be to go over the install looking for anything obvious that would cause a short and fix as necessary. I also attached a diagram that shows how a 7-way should be wired as well as a help article on trailer wiring for you to check out.

  • Troubleshooting One Electric Trailer Brake That Locked Up While Driving on Interstate
    It sounds like there could be a short in your trailer wiring for one of the brakes or there could have been a mechanical failure in that one brake assembly. I think the second possibility is more likely since only one brake was affected. You will want to inspect the wiring to the affected brake (and the others too) to check for signs of damaged wires or worn insulation that could cause a short. If the short were very near the one brake assembly then that might cause the issue to be isolated...

  • How do Trailer Brake Magnets Wire to Trailer Wiring.
    Brake magnet wires like what are on the brake assembly # 23-106 that you referenced can be wired up with either wire getting the positive and the other getting the ground. As long as current runs through them it doesn't matter which wire gets the positive circuit and which gets the negative (run to the trailer frame). In case you are wondering about wiring up a breakaway system I attached a chart and help article that should detail everything. When the plunger of a breakaway system is...

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up in Rhythm with Blinker Circuit
    The problem is that someone either ran your brake light/blinker circuit to the brake output circuit of your vehicle 7-way, or the two circuits have shorted out together. I attached a diagram that shows how a 7-way should be wired up so that you can clean up the wiring of your vehicle.

  • How to Temporary Disable Trailer Breakaway System so Trailer Can Get to Mechanic to Fix Short
    Sounds like the breakaway pin of your system has been pulled or the wires on either side of the switch are shorting out to each other which is causing the brakes of the trailer to apply. If you are looking for a way to get the trailer to your mechanic so that he can repair the short you could remove the battery of the breakaway system so that it would stop activating the brakes. This HAS to be a temporary solution so that you can cautiously get the trailer to your mechanic though. Take...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Lock Up Even with No Power Getting to Them
    Your trailer might be possessed! If the trailer has a battery on it with a breakaway system then that is likely where the power was coming from. Even if there wasn't a breakaway system, if there is a battery on the trailer then it is possible that corrosion on or in the trailer connector could be causing a short from the 12 volt circuit to the brake circuit. Cutting the power to the magnets should cause the brakes to release. But in this case that didn't work. Since you mentioned that...

  • 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Trailer Brake Controller Short Troubleshooting
    When your trailer is unplugged from truck there should be no voltage on the brake output circuit of the trailer. If there is that would indicate that a breakaway system is being activated and should be addressed. If your brake controller is telling you there is a short on the brake output circuit when the trailer is connected that would indicate there is a short somewhere on the trailer's wiring since you said the truck side is good. Typically this is caused by cut or exposed wire on the...

  • Should Brakes Hum When Activated by Breakaway System like Brake Controller

  • Why Would Brand New Trailer Brakes Feel Weak
    Most brakes also require a (break-in) period. Dexter says to get up to about 20-30 mph and use the manual override several times. They may also feel weak breaking because it is recommended to let the brakes (seat) into the hub for the first 200 miles and then readjust the brakes. It is likely you need to do both of these even if they properly adjusted the brakes. Nearly every time we hear about someone with new brakes that are weak the issue is that they just aren't adjusted properly. Check...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Trailer Brake Assemblies After Replacing Magnets
    A weak ground can cause a brake assembly to not be able to totally lock up a trailer wheel. What you will want to do is try running the ground wire back to the main ground wire of the trailer wiring harness. This will give you the best possible ground so that you can know for sure if this is the problem. Another common problem is brake assemblies that are out of adjustment. You will want the assemblies to be adjusted to the point where there is a light drag on the wheel as you turn it...
