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!!!!

Easy to install and again no problems this far.



by:

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

Perfect match as always. Shipping was fast. Customer service to find the right part is always so very much appreciated. Always happy to pay a couple of extra dollars for their reliable support and fast shipping (via shipping)!!!!!!!!!!!



by:

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



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.

Just to say the products are great well made

Quality product and super fast shipping

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.

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:

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



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.



by:

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:

Wonderful service, exact replacement, delivered promptly!



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:

Thanks or the prompt reply on proper grease seal. You were very prompt on shipping all the parts I needed for my trailer brakes. It only took 4 days from order until I received. Every thing worked fine. Thanks again for the very good service. Ray Bellamy



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:

Had exactly what I needed. No hassle order. Got a quality part to me in a few days.
When I finally got time to install it, it fit and worked perfect.



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.

  • When Should I Replace My Brakes On The Dexter Electronic Brake Assembly # 23-106?
    I reached out to Dexter about your specific question concerning your brakes # 23-106-09. A simple visual inspection of your brake linings will tell if they are usable. Replacement is necessary if the lining is worn to 1/16" or less. Shoes contaminated with grease or oil, or abnormally scored or gouged should also be replaced. Hairline heat cracks are normal in bonded linings and should not be cause for concern. When replacement is necessary, it is important to replace both shoes on each...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Brake Assembly for 2001 Alfa Gold Trailer
    The type of brake assembly shown in your photos, were commonly used on mobile home axles, and older travel trailers. If you could provide a little more information I would be happy to make a recommendation for a brake assembly for your trailer. In order to get the proper corresponding parts I will need to know the following information: Brake mounting flange dimension - the center to center distance between the bolt holes Inner bearing numbers - the reference number stamped on bearing...

  • Why Would Trailer Brake Controller Show Intermittent NC Connection
    The NC message then followed by numbers appearing indicates that the controller was intermittently connecting and disconnecting. This is typically due to corrosion on the connection. Your brake pedal feeling spongy sounds like your brakes were overheating and not functioning. This is most likely because of the emergency stop you had to make. Once they cooled down I am sure they went back to normal. The trailer being connected would have no impact on that. I would recommend cleaning the...

  • Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Connected to 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 with Factory Brake Controller
    If the trailer has electric over hydraulic brakes, then the factory integrated brake controller in your 2011 Dodge Ram is not compatible. We have an FAQ article on the issue which I have linked for you. If the trailer just has electric brakes, try adjusting the factory brake controller, it may be set too aggressively for the trailer brakes. You will also want to check the trailer connectors on the truck and trailer to make sure there is no dirt or corrosion build up in or behind the trailer...

  • Can Electric Drum Brakes be Used on a Boat Trailer
    Actually, i would not recommend an electric brake assembly for a boat trailer because the finish on them is not the best for marine applications and you could run into short problems if the wiring is not sealed out from the water. It is done sometimes it just not recommended and I would use hydraulic disc brakes. I would need to know the wheel size you have, the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings,and the axle capacity. If the trailer is set up for...

  • 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...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Brakes Lock Up when Lightly Touching Brake Pedal
    There could be a few different things causing the brake lockup on your trailer. First, I assume you have already tried this but you can try adjusting the power output on the brake controller down. It could just be set too high. If you have a proportional brake controller make sure that it is mounted within the range specified in its manual and that it is not tilted or turned to one side. If the controller has a manual leveling knob on the side make sure it is facing straight up and down....

  • 12 Volt Pin Not Working on 2001 Chevy Silverado 7-Way Trailer Connector
    The first thing we need to do is make sure both the trailer and vehicle side 7-Ways are wired up correctly to work with each other. I have included a couple of pictures that show the backs of vehicle and trailer side 7-Ways and the functions for each of the locations (ignore the wire colors and just focus on the functions). If everything is where it should be then the problem could be a tow package fuse. Under the hood and under the covers for the power distribution box there is a post...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locking Up and Brake Controller Reading No Trailer Connection
    This could be a ground problem, a problem with the trailer connectors, or a problem with the brakes. The first thing I would check is the trailer connectors on the truck and trailer. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion. Corrosion could cause a short between the 12 volt power wire and the brake output wire. You should also check for dirt and corrosion on the back side of the connectors. If this does not solve the problem, you can also make sure that the trailer is pinned out...

  • Trailer Brakes Will Not Work with 2014 Ram 2500 But Work Fine with Other Trucks
    Since the truck works fine with other trailers and the trailer works fine with other trucks the issue must be compatibility between the brake controller and the trailer brakes. Check the brake controller and make sure it is in the correct mode (electric for electric brakes or electric over hydraulic for electric over hydraulic trailer brakes) if the brake controller has both modes. The controller on your 2014 Ram 2500 might be more sensitive to ground or short issues than the other trucks...

  • 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...

  • 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 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,...

    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. You are going to need to follow the link I attached that will walk you through the entire process of adding brakes to your trailer. Basically you will need to first determine what hubs you have on your trailer so that you can pick out the correct hub/drums so that you can build everything...

  • Should I Put Brakes on the Front or Back Axle of my Tandem Axle Trailer
    Typically trailers will carry more of their weight on the front of the trailer, so you would want to put the brakes on the front axle as it will most likely carry more weight while braking. Also, when braking, weight will shift forward from the inertia of the stop, so that would put more weight on the front axle. Click the picture to the right to see a picture that displays how tandem axle trailers typically distribute their cargo weight on their two axles. If you have a trailer that carries...

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up with One Tow Vehicle But Not Other
    Normally when we see this problem it's on setups that use 6-way trailer wiring. The reason is there are two generally accepted ways to wire up 6-ways and the only difference is the 12 volt accessory circuit and the brake output circuit are swapped which means that if you go to connect a trailer and tow vehicle that are using the opposite setup the brakes are locked up. So the simplest solution is to flip these two circuits on either the tow vehicle or the trailer. Check out the attached...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Where Only One Assembly Is Getting Hot
    Can you turn the wheel by hand if it is jacked up and off the ground? It sounds like your brake assemblies are dragging too much which is creating heat from friction. To see how to adjust the brake assemblies so that you get the correct amount of drag check out the video I attached, fast forward to the 4:50 mark. It could also be possible that the wheel is getting hot because it is the only assembly doing any braking. You should try adjusting the brakes like in the attached video on the...

  • 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.

  • 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...
