Time to replace original brakes on Jayco travel trailer. Bought two fully assembled genuine Dexter trailer brake kits. One kit for each axle. Purchase price was excellent and received fully assembled as described. Packaging was great with no damage. Free shipping! The brake assemblies looked good with no issues. Definitely new! Installed with no issues. No missing hardware. Their website was easy to use. Will buy from them again. As a side note, really appreciate the videos they provide on their website to help as required.




by:

My trailer brakes were inoperable, and these complete assemblies make it easy especially if your not familiar with drum style brakes and all the springs.

The job was very tedious as my original backing plates (2014) didn’t want to unbolt easily

I was happy to have been able to get ALL Dexter branded stuff to make sure everything would fit the way it was meant to. No additional fabrication was needed. It was simply splicing the brake wires back together and bolting everything down




by:

I purchased a brake assembly and hub kit for my travel trailer. I had a 100% positive experience with etrailer. Very helpful in placing my order.
All parts were correct and fit perfectly.
The only minor problems I encountered were as follows. The printed instructions included with the hubs were copies, that had been recopied about 3000 times. Practically illegible. One of the brake assemblies arrived without the small plastic clip that secures the wires for the brake magnet to the backing plate. Both of these small problems were "in the box" from Dexter and not the fault of etrailer
I will have no hesitation dealing with etrailer in the future.




by:

etrailer had the best price I could find with fast shipping. These were factory replacement parts from Dexter and made the whole process of changing the brakes easy. They also worked as designed once I adjusted them.




by:

Everything arrived but I was surprised that small parts weren't lost because one cardboard box (brake drum) had split open and the inner bag (lug nuts, etc) was ripped.. I would encourage the packers to make sure packages are sturdy enough for the trip.




by:

Complete brake assembly was easy to install and wire up. Took several manual adjustments before self adjusting worked properly. O




by:

My brakes shipped the afternoon I placed the order. I had them in three days. Peyton knew the exact brakes I needed for my trailer and the tutorial videos could not have been easier to follow. With a bit of mechanical ability, anyone can do this job and save yourself a lot of money.




by:

I have to admit I am very impressed with my purchase from etrailer.com. This is my first time ordering anything from them. Ordering from their website was easy and very informative. Lots of pictures showing the product. One we ordered, We were notified our order was received. What got me was they sent an email notifying me what I ordered, who (with a name and picture of the person) processed, pulled, and packaged/shipped my order. Where it was in the system as far as shipping location. Even shows a map of where it has traveled at time of viewing. Gave me tracking information. And even followed up with my order once I received it. I would very much recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking to purchase items for their trailer. Fast and very informative ordering/shipping process. Order was received in great shape. The brakes were in the unopened factory boxes with hardware included. Instructions for installation were also included. And they were at an affordable price. Awesome job everyone. I am very impressed with this order. Thank you for making it a great and unforgettable purchase.

Brakes work good. Have not been out much this year camping due to COVID and USFS shutdowns from Wildfires. But the two times we went, they worked just fine. May choose the self adjusting ones next time.

order came in a reasonable time frame. pretty good considering all the supply chain delays. i found i saved 40$ by shopping at etrailer vs the actual manufacturer. cant go wrong there.




by:

Thank you for offering products made in USA.
These bolted on easy and were of great quality.
Delivery was also fast.




by:

Good product, relatively easy to install following instructions.




by:

As usual with etrailer every time for me, my order was processed and shipped with expediency. The product came undamaged, and was everything that it was advertised to be.
This Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit, was complete and an easy bolt up process. I had 4 assemblies installed and wired, wheels back on, and my trailer off the jack stands and back on the ground in just over an hour.
Keep doing what you're doing. It is nice getting what you pay for, which seems to be harder and harder to do these days.




by:

Very good quality, product arrived in a timely manner, (even during this supply chain mess we are in). I replaced axle, entire brake kit- both sides, and new drums. Great service by etrailer on everything.




by:

Old brakes completely wore out and no longer functionable. New brakes installed easy and I cleaned up old drums and reused. Needed to use trailer for a 1000 mile trip to pick up a truck cab and brakes worked good going out and great coming home after wearing in to old drums. Have worked super ever since. I often haul heavy loads and need good functional brakes like these.


Comments
Brakes work great, very smooth.

by:

Ordered on Sunday and product received on Wednesday. What fast service. Removed old assembly prior to new coming but product was easy to install for anyone who is mechanically minded. I would recommend this site to anyone who needs trailer parts. Also liked their how to do videos as these were helpful.




by:

This trailer brake kit was incredibly easy to work with. Hardest part of the installation was removing the old hardware. Perfect fit & wiring was a breeze.




by:

Product received quickly and right on time. Installation was very simple. All parts worked perfectly. Could not have been more satisfied.




by:

I was thoroughly impressed with the whole process of ordering, shipping and handling. I was ultimately impressed with the website design and how complete and user friendly it was. Other online companies could learn from you!




by:

Parts were correct, priced very competitively, and delivered on time. Expertise at etrailer was needed and greatly appreciated. Thank you!




by:

Easy to install and works great no trouble with the brakes so far

  • Which Left Hand Brake Replaces A 10 Inch 3,500 Pound Dexter Brake Assembly?
    If you only need a left hand brake, we definitely have what you need. The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Assembly # 23-26 will be just the left side (driver side) brake that will come with the # 23-26-27 Dexter 10 inch 3,500 pound brake kit.

  • Replacement 3,500 lb Electric Trailer Brakes For Brakes Without Magnet Available
    The Replacement Magnet BP01-255 is not a replacement for the BP01-090 as they are for different brakes. The BP01-090 has been discontinued for a number of years, and was a replacement for Hayes 10" x 2-1/4" brakes manufactured before 1988. There is no longer a replacement for these magnets so the only option really is a new set of electric brakes. Brakes that are 10" x 2-1/4" are for 3,500 lb axles, and so long as your trailer has a 4-bolt brake mounting flange what you can use is the...

  • Replacement Braking Assemblies for a 2009 Newman Aluminum Trailer
    The place card or info sticker is generally found around the tongue area near the coupler but it could be in other locations as well so it's best to start here then look over the whole trailer if not found on or near the tongue. However, if you are trying to find a set of replacement braking assemblies then I have a better option for you and that is to look for the axle capacity which can be found on the axle tag which is located in the center of the axle.

The reason they will fit is these brake assemblies are the same dimensions as your drums, 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide so they are perfect for you.

  • Troubleshooting Right Side Brake Magnet on Single Axle Utility Trailer
    Each brake magnet should have 2 leads, one to power, one to ground. Most of the time, folks just ground the magnet to the trailer frame, and use the trailer frame itself as the ground circuit. I'd recommend finding the point where the wiring makes a run to the right side, and test the supply wire for power after the junction. Even if the magnet is bad, you should still show power on the wire feeding the magnet. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to test brake magnets to...

  • Determining if Dexter Trailer Brake Assemblies # 23-26-27 Fit 1995 Shorelandr Trailer
    We don't have a way to determine what axle your trailer has but if it has 3,500 lb axles then yes the brake assemblies # 23-26-27 would work. You can also measure the drums to see if they 10 by 2-1/4 inch as well and if so these are correct.

  • Recommended Trailer Brakes For An AL-KO T35 Axle On A 2008 Springdale RD179
    From everything I could find, the AL-KO T35 axle will use the same 4-Bolt Pattern as the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-26-27. With that being said, the mounting flange bolt hole distance the will fit will be 2-7/8" apart on center, so I do suggest double checking your measurement, just to make sure. As long as it matches, you are good to go.

  • Troubleshooting Dexter Electric Brakes Overheating on Rear Axle of Tandem Axle Trailer
    It sounds like you have already done a lot of troubleshooting and your brakes are adjusted properly each time. You certainly shouldn't have to be adjusting brakes like the # 23-26-27 every 300-500 miles. The first thing I would check is the wiring for your rear brake assemblies. Make sure the power and ground wires have a good connection. The other thing I think this could be is the axle/spindles. It is possible you have a bent spindle or axle which could result in suspension issues and...

  • Can Self-Adjusting and Manual Adjusting Braking Assemblies Be Mixed
    It is not advised to mix self-adjusting and manual adjusting braking assemblies on the same axle.

The result of doing so would be uneven braking pressure which would result in control issues as well as safety concerns.
