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.


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.

Our 2021 Reflection 260rd 5th wheel gets used ALOT, that being said I will guess it has at least 4o,ooo plus miles.
While doing a wheel bearing inspection I noticed one corner brakeshad unusual wear on just one shoe and another corner had a leaking wheel seal that needed attention.
I placed an order for all four corners to replace all the backing plates and hardware, order came in as scheduled, I did the work and the brakes are back as good as new, very happy with the parts and prompt service.

I do a vehicle inspection after every longer camping trip and our last journey was to Wyoming. About 4500 miles in all, after the trip I did another roll around inspection, all good ,no adjustments needed.



by:

Original equipment, exact replacement for my Dexter 4400 lb axles. We're full time campers and my old ones had many, many miles on them. This was a really easy, do-it-yourself, job. 4 bolts and two wires and you're done. Etrailer had them in stock, shipped fast, no problems.

This was an exact match for my 5th wheel. Not to hard to install and has worked well with no issues.

Working good!

These brake kits are not normally stocked in most places but etrailer had them and at a good price. These kits made replacing my brakes a lot easier and they are still working great after a couple of long trips and many short ones.



by:

Etrailer was the only source I could find that had brake assemblies to fit my 3,500 lb axles. Thanks to them and overnight shipping we were on the road quickly.



by:

Awesome price, very quick delivery, carefully shipped and exact oe fit. Would even say better than original brake springs.



by:

Very well prepared and easy to use. Comes with all needed parts. Kit only contains parts for one axel! Need 2 for 4 wheels



by:

Fast, efficent service and delivery. The parts were nust what we needed .



by:

Worked great. Too bad this is the only option for this axle. Dexter has made it quite profitable for this axle versus the 3500 lbs axles.



by:

Good product, but more information about installation would be helpful

Only received one set, when we ordered and paid for two sets.

  • Replacement Trailer brakes for a River Wildwood 30KQBSS
    It sounds like your 2018 Forest River Wildwood 30KQBSS Travel Trailer has a bad brake assembly. Since you are still having issues with the trailer disconnected we can rule out a ground or wiring issues. We have both a left and right hand assembly available depending on which side of your trailer you're having problems with. For the Left Hand side you will want the Dexter Electric Brake Assembly for 4.4K Axles item # K23-462-00. For the Right Hand side you will want the Dexter Electric...

  • Is The Bushing For Actuating Lever On Dexter Brake Kit # K23-462-463-00 Available Separately?
    I do not see that Dexter offers the bushing separately for the Dexter Brake Kit # K23-462-463-00. We do have the Left # K23-462-00 and Right # K23-463-00 assemblies separately so you do not have to get both assemblies.

  • How To Confirm Fit of Dexter 4,400 lb Electric Trailer Brake Kit K23-462-463-00
    The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # K23-462-463-00 is designed for 4,400 lb axles with a four bolt mounting flange. If this is what you have then it will work great. The axle capacity can be found on the axle tag sticker in the center of the beam. Unfortunately, we cannot look up parts for any one specific trailer. The kits is for two assemblies.

  • Does Going with Higher Rated Brake Assembly Give you Additional Braking Strength
    The magnets between differing trailer brake assembly capacities aren't more powerful than each other so much as they are different in sensitivity. You don't gain any power going with a higher rated assembly than you need. You actually just end up with a harder to adjust braking setup. It will seem like either the brakes are applying to hard or too soft without any middle ground. That's why your best option is to go with the exact capacity you need.

  • Replacement Electric Brakes for 4,200 lb Axle on Coachmen Apex Nano Trailer
    Though I would not be able to answer for parts that are on your trailer now, it is a good idea for your brakes to match your axle's weight capacity. As for a replacement, I could not find a reference to the brakes you have now, and the only replacements that fit a 10" x 2-1/4" drum have a 4-bolt mounting flange or a very specific 4-bolt flange with 2.83" x 2.83" spacing. Since the brake kit you referenced has a 4-bolt flange do you have 2.83" x 2.83" spacing or need a different size?

  • Recommended Dexter Electric Drum Brakes for 4000-lb Axles on 5th Wheel Trailer
    We have electric drum brakes rated for 4400-lb axles (and hydraulic drum brakes rated for 3750- and 5200-lb axles) but none rated for exactly 4000-lbs. For electric drum brakes in the 10 x 2-1/4-inch size for a 5th wheel the 4400-lb-rated brakes will be fine. I suggest using Dexter kit # K23-462-463-00 which is a left- and right-hand set of manual-adjust brakes with the 4-bolt mounting pattern. These work with trailer wheels from 13- to 15-inches. When you install the new brakes either...

  • How to Determine if 4,400 lb Electric Brakes Fit Trailer
    We don't have a way of knowing the brakes that fit your 2005 Fleetwood Coleman Niagara trailer, but can tell you how to find out if the 4,400 lb Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # K23-462-463-00 will fit. The only way to do this is to know your mounting bolt pattern and the diameter and depth of your trailer's drum. You need to have a 4-bolt mounting flange like part # 4-35, and the inside depth of your drum needs to measure 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide. If you have those specs you will...

  • Does A 2020 Grand Design 2670MK Have Brakes On Both Axles?
    According to what I can find in the online user guide, a 2020 Grand Design 2670MK does have electric drum brakes on both axles. So, it would be as you said a total of 4 brakes with 2 on each side. Some older models did have brakes on only one axle, but the 2020 and newer models should have brakes on both axles. You can easily verify this by just looking underneath and looking at each hub. If there are brakes, you will see the hub and drum assembly with two wires coming off of the backing...

  • Electric Brakes For 2020 Grand Design Imagine 2670MK
    Yep, you got it; the correct electric brakes for your 2020 Grand Design Imagine 2670MK travel trailer are the following: - Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 4,400 lbs # K23-462-463-00 These come with the mounting hardware so you're set there, but they are manually adjusting brakes so if you don't have one you'll also need the Brake Adjustment Spoon for Drum Brakes # W80630.

  • Replacement Brake and Hub Assemblies for Travel Trailer
    To help you with replacement drums and brake assemblies, I need more information on your 2011 Keystone Outback 260FL. I need to either know the bearing numbers and seal number or know a few spindle dimensions. The bearing numbers can be found by pulling one hub and looking at the face of the inner and outer bearing. Each one will have a number printed into the face of the bearing. The seal will also have a number printed into it. If you can't find these numbers, then we will need to...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies for AL KO 4,400 Trailer Axle
    For 4,400 AL KO trailer axles the correct replacement brake assemblies are part # K23-478-00 for the left hand side and part # K23-479-00 for the right hand side. It is much easier to just replace the assemblies instead of trying to individually replace all of the components. It often ends up costing about the same as well.

  • Brake Assemblies for Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 5th Wheel with ALKO 4K Torsion Axles
    Based on my research, it looks like your 2006 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite camper has a tandem axle setup and the axles are 4,000 lb AL-KO torsion axles.There should be a label on the axle listing the manufacturer and the weight rating of the axle so that you can confirm these are the axles on your trailer. From there we will want to measure the brake assembly's mounting flange to make sure we get the correct replacement assemblies. We'll need to measure the top bolts center to center,...

  • Replacement Brakes for a 2011 Jayco Jay Flight G2 32BHDS
    It looks like the gross weight rating of your Jayco Jay Flight G2 32BHDS is 9,950 pounds. I am thinking that it has two 5,200 pound axles OR two 4,400 pound axles because they assume the tow vehicle is supporting 13 percent of the trailer tongue weight. If they are 5,200 pound axles then you would need 12 inch brakes with a 5 bolt mounting pattern such as # AKEBRK-6. If they are 4,400 pound axles then you would need 10 inch brakes with a 4 bolt mounting pattern such as # K23-462-463-00. You...

  • Replacement Trailer Brakes for Tandem 3,700 lb Axle Trailer
    Trailer brakes can definitely wear faster depending on the style of driving and the terrain, but that sounds like excessive wear. You should get way more than 3,000 miles out of a set of brakes. With your axles you must be using the 4,400 lb assemblies instead of the 3,500 lb assemblies. For the replacements I recommend the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 4.4K # K23-478-479 or the manual assemblies # K23-462-463-00.

Deciding on this kit will be determined how much you tow on your trailer. The # K23-086-087-00 provides parking brakes. For the front axle you can use # 23-468-469 which is also a pair for left and right assemblies.

    There should be a tag or information stamped into the axle. It sounds like you have the D44 axle which is a 4,400 pound Dexter axle. If it was made after May 1, 2009 then Dexter lists brakes # K23-462-463-00 as the correct brakes for the axle. If the axle was made before May 1, 2009 then the correct brakes are # 23-454-455.
