Quick Tip: There's really not a whole lot to getting new drum brakes. If you've confirmed that all of the specs listed above line up with what you need for your trailer, you can be pretty sure these will work for you.


Ready to Roll When You Are

If you're looking to customize your off-road trailer or pop-up camper, these brakes can be a great way to do that.


a greyscale diagram shows how a manual parking brake cable is installed on the back of an electric parking brake assembly

Installing these brakes is easy, and using them is even easier. Run the linkage cable from your tongue-mounted handbrake (not included) to the backing plate of the assembly as shown above. Then, just pull on the handbrake any time you need a little reassurance that your valuable cargo won't roll away from you.


How to Manually Adjust Trailer Brakes

The more miles you put on your trailer, the more your brake pads will wear down. As they lose contact with the drum, stopping distances get longer and longer. To keep your brakes working great, it's important to adjust them pretty routinely. For this job, grab a floor jack and either a brake adjustment tool (sold separately) or just a standard flathead screwdriver.


Jack up your trailer enough to get the wheel(s) off the ground. Remove the adjuster plugs from the backing plate on the brake, and insert the flat end of the tool through the back of the assembly.


Screenshot from an instruction video shows how to manually adjust the the alignment on a drum brake

Push in on the star gear and lift it up. Keep doing this until the brake pads catch on your drum. When you can't spin your wheel by hand anymore, back the gear off by about 10 clicks by pushing down on the star gear. Does the wheel now spin freely (even if it sounds like the brake pads drag slightly on the drum)? Great! Then you're all done with that one and ready to adjust the rest.


How to Break In New Brakes

After you get these brakes installed and adjusted, you'll need to break them in. First, find a long stretch of road or a big, empty parking lot. Once you're there, set your brake controller to its maximum setting and get moving. Speed up to about 40 mph and brake to slow to about 20 mph. Repeat this 15-30 times. The goal is to get the brake shoes and magnet properly seated into your drum. You'll know you've done that when it feels less jerky (and more consistent) each time you apply the brakes.


Note: The brakes will be very hot after doing this, so after every 10 stops you'll want to wait about 10 minutes to let the brakes cool off before continuing. If you don't, you might cook and crack the pad material.

Purchased Dexter 3,500 lb backing plate assembly with brakes including manual brake. Parts were genuine Dexter. Installation has helped in the restoration of a Sloan Kwik Load car trailer I recently acquired.

Appreciate the etrailer employee followup, service, and pricing. Thanks so much.



by:

Great service and fast shipping.



by:

Perfect match.



by:

etrailer's service and delivery was excellent! Very professional, fast and the staff were super helpful and knowledgeable.

Dexter's brake hubs, however, leave a lot to be desired. They couldn't put less paint on these assemblies if they tried! The paint is so patchy and thin that I will have to disassemble them, paint the components properly and reassemble before installing them on my trailer otherwise they will be rusty within days. Come on Dexter, if you are going to bother painting these assemblies then for goodness sake paint them properly!



by:

At Ruger Trailers we have been getting more requests for Dexter electric brakes with the parking brake feature. After attempting to order through our normal distributors we were disappointed at the lack of availability and high prices. Went through etrailer and got exactly what we needed in two days at a very good price. Good experience!

  • Parking Brake Cable for Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes
    The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes part # K23-086-087-00 (K23-087-00 + K23-086-00) comes with the parking brake levers but not the parking brake cable. We do not offer the cable at this time. I have attached a review video of these brake assemblies for you as well.

  • Bolt Pattern of Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # K23-086-087-00
    The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # K23-086-087-00 that you referenced features a 4 bolt pattern with the bolts spaced apart by 2-7/8 inches, on center. This is the standard pattern for 3,500 pound assemblies and I have attached an image to assist. As long as you have 10 x 2-1/4 inch drums and this bolt pattern matches your existing flanges this kit will work perfectly.

  • How to Tell if Dexter Axle 3,500 lb Electric Trailer Brakes Will Fit Axle
    Thanks for reaching out, Michael! The Dexter Electric Trailer Brakes # K23-086-087-00 are compatible with 3,500 lb axles and have the standard 4-bolt pattern so if that matches the specs of your axle then this will definitely work for your application. These measure 10" x 2-1/4" and fit with standard 3,500 lb hub/drum assemblies as well. You can verify the inner diameter and depth of your hub/drum to determine fitment as well.

  • Can Electric Brakes be Used for Boat Trailers
    This is a really good question, and while it may seem like electric brakes on a boat trailer would be a terrible idea, it actually works really well and there aren't shorts or issues using them. All of the brands would work well with boat trailer applications including the Dexter setup part # K23-086-087-00 that you referenced.

  • Does Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes Include Lever
    We do have a set of Dexter 3,500 electric brake assemblies that are designed for use with parking brakes as part # K23-086-087-00 that you referenced. It's hard to see since it blends in but the lever is built into the top of the assemblies that activates the parking brake. You can see it pointed out in the review video I attached as well.

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Brakes W/ Parking Brake for a Haulmark Enclosed Trailer
    That is correct you're going to need two sets of the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes # K23-086-087-00 for all four wheels to be outfitted with parking brakes. The lever is included with the kit, however at this time we do not offer a cable for this, unfortunately. We have had people modify the Dexter Breakaway and Parking Kit for Drum Brakes # T2385200 which is for hydraulic brakes but we can condone or confirm that this will work.

  • Is There a Parking Brake Lever and Cable for Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes
    I do have an option for you but we don't offer any parking brake kits specifically designed for electric brakes like the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes part # K23-086-087-00. That said, we have heard of others modifying the Titan Breakaway and Parking Kit for Drum Brakes part # T2385200 to work which is for hydraulic brakes but we cannot really offer input on the modifications.

  • Replacement Dexter 10 Inch Electric Brake Assemblies for Off-Road Camper
    To replace the 10 inch brake assemblies on your offroad camper I recommend the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # K23-086-087-00. This kit includes both the Left Hand and Right Hand assemblies and will work perfectly as replacements to your existing Dexter units that include the manual parking brake levers. I do agree that going with a complete replacement will be easier and likely more cost-efficient than trying to replace individual components. I have attached a short video demonstration...

  • Electric Drum Brakes for a 3,500 Lb Axle with Parking Brake
    I do have an option for you but the only electric drum brakes we carry designed for 3,500 lb axles that have the parking brake feature are the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes part # K23-086-087-00 which require manual adjustments for setup and even wear. If you decide to go with the manual adjust brakes then I also recommend using the adjustment spoon part # W80630. I have attached a review video on the above assembly for you as well.

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for Trailer with Assemblies Held on with 5 Lugs
    Since your brake assemblies are held on with 5 bolts that would mean they are 12 inch diameter by 2 inch width and the correct assembly set you'd need would be the part # 23-458-459 which are self-adjusting. If instead that is your wheel bolt pattern and you are looking for components needed to add electric brakes to your trailer check out the help article I attached that covers all of that process.

  • 3500 lb Electric Trailer Brake Assembly With Parking Brakes
    The etrailer brand # AKEBRK-35-SA 3.5K brake assemblies aren't compatible with parking brakes, but we do offer a 10 x 2-1/4 inch 3.5K brake assembly kit that is. You'll want to use the Dexter Axle # K23-086-087-00 brake assembly kit which includes the right and left brake assembly, the mounting hardware and the mud and crud plugs that cover the brake adjuster holes. I've linked to a product description video for the brake assemblies I recommended.

  • Can 3,500 lb Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes be Used w/ 24 Volt System

One way to do so is simply use a trailer brake controller that will convert a 24 volt signal to a 12 volt signal on the brake wire, and the one that does that is the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # RED44FR. For other brake controllers, what you would need to do on a 24...

  • Recommendation for Adding Parking Brake to Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies
    Most trailers do not come with parking brakes, but you can add them with certain electric brake assemblies.

    I have a set of Dexter electric brakes that will fit your trailer with parking brakes # K23-086-087-00, however they are rated for 3,500 lbs. This is a right and left side kit. Deciding on this kit will be determined how much you tow on your trailer. The # K23-086-087-00 provides parking brakes.
