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!!!!

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

Sara was very helpful at putting together my order after my POT HOLE incident, which destroyed the rim, tire, brake assembly, etc. Thanks for the help, im back on the road !!

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.

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:

New Dexter complete brake assembly even comes with new mounting nuts. Fast service and quality item.



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.



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.

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

I had bought a used Hallmark 24' cargo trailer. Got around to repacking the bearings and one brake assembly had just come apart. Electric brakes and one lead was gone so I order this item. Arrived in a timely manner. Installed backing plate/brakes and hub in about 15 minutes. Attached electric brake leads and everything looks great. I have not figured out how to test the electric brakes.



by:

Great to work with. Understood what I needed better than I did. Perfect fit.



by:

I had ordered some parts online to rebuild the suspension on one of our trailers. Customer service called me a short time later to inform me that they were out of stock on some items, they asked if it was possible to substitute some items. She was able to find the exact parts I needed in a different kit. The parts came within 3 days, very well packed, and they fit perfectly! This is the 3rd time I've ordered from etrailer and they have exceeded my expectations every time. EXCELLENT customer service and quality parts.



by:

Good OEM replacement parts at the best price I could find. Bolted right up with no issues. Very disappointed that the brake adjuster slots do not come with plugs. Plugs from old brake assy, did not fit, plus there are two slots per new brake assy, but only one on old brake assy. Ordered 8 plugs. Disappointed as I had to pay for additional shipping when I ha free shipping.



by:

Bolted them on, wired trailer over from hydraulic brakes. this job took about 4 hours start to finish. 3 axle trailer. These brakes will hold back my tractor.



by:

Wonderful service, exact replacement, delivered promptly!



by:

I ordered electric brakes on box was opened before, but all parts was still there, nothing lost. Got parts fairly quick also.
I've made purchases before from etrailer will continue in future.



by:

Etrailer was great. Ordered dexter brake assemblies and grease seals. Everything work perfectly. Will order again.



by:

Great quality, great price, fit like originals. Price from etrailer.com was quite a bit lower than other vendors. Quick shipping - trailer was back on the road in no time.

  • 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 Brake Controller That Only Works with Override Lever with One Trailer
    It sounds like you have a dirty brake output pin on your truck's wiring that is preventing the controller from detecting the trailer. The manual override lever will apply voltage regardless if a trailer is connected...but using the brake pedal to activate the controller requires the controller to detect a trailer connected. Since truck works with other trailers that indicates that the problem is on the trailer side and 99 percent of the time it's a dirty connector that would cause the problem.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brakes Lock Up On One Side
    If just one of your electric brakes is locking up, and it isn't a short, the issue is likely with the suspension of your trailer. There could be an issue with the hubs or spindle being damaged so you will want to remove your hub and check it for damage, then check the bearings and spindle to make sure there are no issues in that regard. It is likely this is the problem so you will need to replace the hub. You can do this by taking a look at the bearing numbers on the actual bearings and...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • How to Pick Out Brake Components for a 2005 Triton Elite 20 Foot Snowmobile Trailer
    I am sure we carry the correct components to install brakes on your 2005 Triton Elite 20 foot 4 place snowmobile trailer but we do not have a list of everything for your specific trailer that I can give you.

  • 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...

  • Should a Tandem Axle Trailer with One Surge Brake Axle have Electric Brakes Added to Other Axle
    I wouldn't recommend running a different style of trailer brakes on the second axle of your trailer. It would be very difficult to get the braking action of both axles to sync up and work well together since they will be on totally different systems. You would want to either add hydraulic assemblies to the second axle or electric to both axles. I attached a couple help articles that would walk you through the install of either setup.

  • Testing a Vehicle Side 7-Way Trailer Connector for Proper Function
    To check the pins on the vehicle side 7-Way, you can use a circuit tester or the volt meter. The circuit tester will show you if a signal is coming through on the pin you are testing while the volt meter will tell you that and how much voltage is being sent. When you test the brake circuit pin on the 7-Way, it may be more beneficial to see how much voltage it is sending through. If you are facing the 7-Way, using either tester, you will test for the proper signal as follows: 1 oclock...

  • How To Easily Disconnect Trailer Brake Controller On A 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
    The easiest way to disconnect your trailer brake controller from your vehicle is to disconnect your brake controller. You'll just need to unplug the controller plug from the back of the brake controller. This should eliminate any power draw from your vehicle's battery. The only other way is to cut the brake wire from the trailer connector, but you should not need to do this. So on your Journey HD trailer brake controller, you'll just need to unplug both ends of the plug that's going...

  • 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.

  • Inspecting and Testing Trailer Brake Magnet and Wiring
    The magnet looks to be fine, a little dirty perhaps, but it doesn't look like the copper windings are coming through. The melted wire though indicates that there was likely a short that caused the wire to melt. A short could have been at the magnet or the wiring to the magnet. Pinched wires or frayed copper strands touching bare metal could be the cause. I have included a link to a help article that explains how to test the magnets.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up
    Trailer brakes that lock up can be related to several problems. If they lock up when the trailer connected is connected that would indicate that the 12 volt accessory circuit is shorting out to the brake output circuit on the trailer which is causing the brakes to lock up. You would want to check the wiring and trailer connectors of both the vehicle and trailer looking for any obvious signs of shorts such as cut or exposed wire, or corrosion and fix as necessary. If they lock up when the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that are Locking Up Whenever Connected to Tow Vehicle
    On your tow vehicle's wiring you have a short between the 12 volt accessory circuit and the brake output circuit which is putting 12 volts on the brake circuit whenever it's connected. It could be on either the vehicle or trailer side of the wiring so go over both looking for any obvious signs of a short like cuts or exposed wire and fix as needed.

  • Should There Be Continuity In Brake Magnets
    You can definetly check the resistance of your trailer brake magnets. Depending on the trailer brake size you have, you are looking for a specifc range of Ohms. If you have 10 or 12 inch brakes you should see 3.0-3.8 Ohms, and if you have 7 inch brakes you should see between 3.8-4.0 Ohms. If the reading you are getting is outside of those ranges, you will need to replace your magnet. I linked all of our replacement magnets, or if you can tell me what size brakes you have I can recommend...

  • Troubleshooting Car Trailer With One Wheel Locked Up
    I'm sorry to hear your trailer wheel is locked up! My recommendation is to jack up the trailer and remove that specific wheel and drum. You may need to loosen the brake adjuster first to be able to get the drum off. My guess is that either that brake assembly suffered a mechanical failure causing it to lock up and stay locked up or there is corrosion that has caused that brake shoe to stick to the inside of the drum which can happen if the trailer sat for long periods of time. If when...

  • What Would Cause Trailer Brakes to Lock Up When Brakes are Touched
    If a brake controller is rated for more trailer axles than what the trailer has it would not cause the brakes to lock up but I believe I know what's going on. If trailer brakes are locking up when you touch the brake pedal that typically indicates that the problem is the stoplight circuit being shorted to the brake output circuit. You can test this by putting on the blinkers of the tow vehicle and if the brakes intermittently lock up with the blinker this would prove this.

  • 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...

    What type of brakes does this trailer have? If drum did you happen to check the brake magnets in the hubs? It's very possible you have a bad magnet with exposed windings giving your brake controller circuit a short. I attached a help article on how to troubleshoot this but it's probably best to pull the hubs off and inspect.

  • How to Determine if Trailer 7-Way is Upside Down for Determining Pin Out
    I attached a picture of a 7-way wiring diagram for you to check out to help show you where all of the pins of the connector are. If your 7-way is upside then yes the diagram would need to rotate 180 degrees. You can use the notch of the 7-way to determine if this the case. The square notch is normally on top of the connector so if yours is on the bottom then it is inverted.
