See what our Experts say about this Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes



  • Can I Use Dexter Components on Lippert Axles and Vice Versa?
    You're not going to have any problems mixing Dexter and Lippert components on trailer axles over 10k-lbs in the same manner as below 10k-lbs as long as the measurements on the replacement parts are the same- i.e. bearing sizes are the same, etc.. This happens quite often in our shop repairs where we'll use Dexter Brakes like the # 23-408-409 on a Lippert Axle. When doing this, as mentioned above, you will want to make sure that you're using the correct capacity components with parts that...

  • Are the Brake Shoes from the Dexter Hydraulic Brakes # 23-408-409 Sold Individually?
    I have an answer about the brake shoes on the Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit - Duo Servo - 12-1/4" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # 23-408-409. With this hydraulic kit, we do not carry just the brake shoes individually. With that being said, you need to purchase the complete assemblies.

  • Converting Electric-Over-Hydraulic Brakes to Electric Brakes on Trailer
    If your trailer is currently equipped with electric-over-hydraulic drum brakes then a good portion of the conversion process to change it to an electric only brake setup will simply be removing existing components that are no longer needed. You will need to replace the hydraulic brake assemblies with electric units such as the etrailer.com # AKEBRK-12 if your Dexter 12K axle currently has 12-1/4 inch x 5 inch drums and re-wire the trailer accordingly. I have attached a great article on...

  • Converting From Dexter 12K Disc Brakes to Dexter 12K Drum Brakes
    The correct Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit for your Dexter 12K Axle is part # 23-408-409. The Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit part # 23-406-407 that you referenced is for Dexter 15K Axles and will not work for you. The Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit uses the same brake mounting flange as your disc brake setup so it will be a direct swap. However, you will still need to obtain the hub and drum. Unfortunately, we do not carry these but the correct part number for the hub is part 8-214-8UC1...

  • Process to Convert Trailer from Air-Over-Hydraulic Brakes to Electric-Over-Hydraulic Brakes
    If the brakes assemblies and hubs/drums on the subject trailers are actually 16-inches in diameter we have no compatible brakes. The largest electric and hydraulic drum brakes we have are 12-1/4 x 5, such as the left/right electric brake set # AKEBRK-12 which is rated for a 12K axle and the left/right hydraulic set # 23-408-409 also rated for 12K axles. We do have electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) actuators like the HydraStar Drum Brake Actuator # HBA-10 and the others shown on the linked...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Trailer from Electric Drum to Electric-Over-Hydraulic Drum Brakes
    To convert your gooseneck trailer from electric drum brakes to EOH (electric over hydraulic) brakes you'll need a few items, all of which are detailed in the linked article on adding an EOH braking system to a trailer. These include the hydraulic brake assemblies, the hub/drums you have, an EOH actuator like the HydraStar # HBA-12, a brake line kit, emergency breakaway kit and a compatible trailer brake controller that will work with an EOH actuator. Not all trailer brake controllers work...
