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!!!!

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.


Comments
Just to say the products are great well made

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




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:

This product was good




by:

The new brakes work well on my trailer. However, when I replace them next time I will spend the extra $$ to get the self adjusting version.




by:

Jim, it was a pleasure to talk. You went over and above to look at what was needed to fill my needs. Delivery was great as always. Look forward to future orders




by:

Everything went well with the installation. Working with etrailer made things happen. Thanks etrailer.




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.


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

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:

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 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brake Assembly to Replace Dexter 023-327-00
    Selecting a replacement electric drum brake assembly requires you to match a few characteristics of your existing assembly. The Dexter brake you referenced, part # 23-106, is a 12 x 2-inch right-hand (passenger side) electric brake with a 5-bolt mounting flange and an axle weight rating of up to 6000-lbs. Since your drums are 12 x 2-inch size these should fit fine. The link provided at right will take you to our main page for electric brakes and you can use the filters in the left margin...

  • 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...

  • Why Would Brakes Lock Up After Wiring and Brake Controller Install on a 2011 Ford E-250
    It sounds like you installed a 6-way on your 2011 Ford E-250 with a brake controller to tow a trailer that also has a 6-way. The thing about 6-way wiring is that there is two generally accepted wiring pin outs for them. The only difference between the two is that the brake output circuit and the 12 volt accessory circuit are swapped. It sounds like your trailer and E-250 are using different wiring. On E-250 you will want to swap the center pin of the connector with the pin in the 9:00...

  • What Causes Trailer Tire Failure
    Typically trailer tires fail for the following 3 reasons. 1) Keep your tires fully inflated to the maximum pressure listed on the tire sidewall. Unlike a passenger car tire, trailer tires feature a stronger sidewall designed to provide greater stability when under load. Failure to fully inflate the tires can cause heat build-up, leading to premature tire failure. Also, a tire only will only realize its specified load rating when inflated to its maximum psi shown on the tire. 2) Do not...

  • Information Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Trailer
    To see absolutely everything you need to add electric brakes to your trailer check out the link to the FAQ article I attached to the right that covers everything. Basically you are going to need to figure out what spindles you have so that you can determine the correct hub/drums that will fit, and then you will need to determine what assemblies will fit the recommended hub drums.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Dont Operate With Manual Brake Switch on Brake Controller
    There are a few things that might be causing the issue you describe. You might have an open ground in the brake system, the connector on the trailer or the vehicle might be damaged, corroded or incorrectly wired. Your brake controller might also be faulty. Perhaps the easiest place to start would be to try the tow vehicle with another trailer that's equipped with electric brakes. If everything works fine with another trailer, then it's a sure bet that the problem is in your trailer wiring....

  • 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,...

  • Trailer Axle or Electric Brakes Locked Up While Driving and Other Axles Did Not Lock
    When you say it locked up to you mean the brakes locked up or the hub will not spin? If it is the brakes then I suspect that there is an electrical problem with the wiring to the brakes on that axle or the magnets themselves. Inspect the wiring and look for any exposed copper strands and fix as needed. Make sure the wiring is not pinched. Also make sure the grounds are attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. It also would not work to check the vehicle and trailer side...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Lights Up without Trailer Connected
    It sounds like your brake controller display will light up when it detects that it is connected to a trailer. If now it is lit up without a trailer connected that would indicate that there is most likely corrosion on the brake output circuit of your trailer connector. Check out the trailer connector looking for any corrosion and clean as necessary. Look on the inside and back of the connector for this. In some cases moisture can cause the issue you are describing as well. Allowing the...

  • Warning Signs for Trailer Brakes Starting to Fail
    If the braking power starts to fade or get weaker that would be the best indicator that the brakes are on their way out. Typically as long as the brakes are seemingly working fine you are good. You can periodically check the pad thickness of the shoes to see if they are wearing out if you want to be super cautious but in most cases its a "if it ain't broke don't fix it", type situation. If you feel the hub getting really hot at any point thats an indicator that the hub bearings are failed...

  • 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.

  • Bully Brake Controller has Locked Up 3 Times When Stopped
    It sounds like there is a short that is causing constant power draw to the brake magnets. The most likely culprit is a dirty or corroded vehicle or trailer side connector. Make sure that both are clean and free of corrosion inside where the wires attach and outside on the pins. If the truck side checks out fine then it could be the wiring to the brake magnets or the magnets themselves. Inspect the power wires to the magnets and look for pinched, frayed, or damaged wires and fix as needed....

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Stay Locked Up When Brake Controller is Attached
    Is the circuit you have the red wire ran to for the brake controller only seeing voltage when the brakes are applied? If so, then the problem is internal of the brake controller. If the circuit is hot all the time you have it attached to the wrong circuit. It needs to be ran to a circuit that only sees voltage when the brakes are applied.

  • 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 Trailer Brakes Where One Wheel Locks Up
    One wheel locking up on your trailers brakes could be for a few reason. Most likely it's due to a brake assembly that is out of adjustment. You want to adjust the assemblies so there is only a light drag on them when they are turned by hand. Check out the 4:40 mark of the video I attached for more info. It could be that there is a short on the circuit, but that wouldn't be it most likely since that would activate all of the brake assemblies since they all share the same circuit. But either...

  • Why Would Trailer Brakes Lock Up All the Time But Still Allow Trailer Lights to Function
    If the breakaway system was activating your trailer brakes the battery of the system would eventually die and it would stop activating them. If the brakes lock up everytime the trailer is connected to the tow vehicle that typically is a short between the 12 volt accessory circuit and the brake output circuit. This causes the brakes to come on anytime the trailer is connected. This will still allow the trailer lights to function. Check the wiring from the connector to the brake assemblies...

  • 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...

  • Do Electric Trailer Brakes Hum When Activated and Which Wire is Power and Ground
    Trailer brake magnets will hum when activated. The wires are also not polarity sensitive so as long as one is grounded and the other has 12 volts you'd be totally fine. Based on what you have described it sounds like your setup is good as-is.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Assemblies that Sound like they are Activating in Reverse
    The issue is not brake controller related since it persisted when the controller was disconnected. If I were you I would jack the trailer up in the air to see if the wheel can be turned by hand in either direction. You should feel a slight drag on the drums as you do so as that's the proper brake assembly adjustment. To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video. If the problem persists you'd want to...

  • 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....
