    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Periodic manual adjustment required
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gears allow for a more precise setting
  • E-coated backing plates resist wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes
  • Left-hand (driver's-side) brake assembly, right-hand (passenger's-side) brake assembly, and mounting bolts included
    • Nuts and lock washers (BRKH7) sold separately

Manual-Adjust Brakes

With repeated use of these brake assemblies, the brake shoes may move out of alignment, causing less efficient braking performance. To keep the brake shoes aligned and the brake assemblies performing correctly, you should perform routine maintenance.

These brake assemblies should be adjusted after installation and then as needed for the life of the brakes. To adjust the brakes, use a brake adjustment screw tool (sold separately) to turn the adjustment gear on the inside of the assemblies. Continue to turn the gear until the drum surrounding the brake catches on the brake pads enough so that the hub can no longer be turned easily by hand. Then reverse the gear by about 10 clicks. A properly adjusted brake should drag slightly on the brake drum.

Thoroughly Tested for Safety

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.

Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on these brake assemblies is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.

The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

I replaced the original hydraulic brakes and hubs on a Jayco popup trailer. The electric brake and hub Assemblies are excellent and were an easy install. Haven't used the trailer during the Covid pandemic, but hope to soon.


Ridiculously horrible packing job resulted in damaged parts. The Post Office tried to salvage the box that was getting pounded apart because the person who "packed' the parts just threw the parts together in a padded envelope and then tossed that in a much larger box with no further packing, so the 9 lb. of parts just banged together and banged the shipping box apart. See photos of what post office did to try and salvage the box.

Customer Service will contact you.

Brake assemblies seem fine, but they don't come with the mounting nuts! You have to purchase them separately. Others have pointed this out only to have an "e-expert" reply with a link to the mounting hardware and an implied "Duh!" So let me do their job for them, here is what should be in the product description- "BRAKE ASSEMBLIES DO NOT INCLUDE THE 8 FINE THREAD 7/16THS NUTS NEEDED FOR THE PRODUCT TO FUNCTION. YOU HAVE TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE PRODUCT TO HAVE A COMPLETE PRODUCT. UNLESS OF COURSE YOU WANT TO GET ELBOWS DEEP INTO YOUR PROJECT ONLY TO DISCOVER YOU HAVE TO STOP EVERYTHING AND GO TO LOWES TO GET 8 NUTS AND WASHERS."

Good Grief


Installed on 2029 sunray 109 that came with 2200 dexter axle and 14 inch wheels/tires. All parts fit well and the new pregreased etrailer hubs/drums made it even easier to assemble. Paula did a great job making sure everything would fit by diligently checking all part numbers,sizing and making sure I got the right controller adapter and brake plate mounting nuts and washers kit. The brakes and pod time delay controller are working well although stopping power seems a mite weak as expected during breaking in period described when you should then readjust after the 1st 200 miles.

These brakes squeal horribly. I have adjusted them, cleaned them, tried heavy force, light force adjusting all the way out and all the way in. They just make the trailer sound horrible. I actually try to not use the brakes because of the way they sound. Bad Bad Bad

Thank you for your review! Regarding the sound coming from your brakes, there are a couple of things that may be the cause that you can check. One thing is to see if your brake pads are worn down, and another thing would be to check the hubs. You said the brakes were clean, but the inside of the hubs can be giving you trouble if they arent cleaned as well. Hopefully this helps you out!

I replaced these brakes with higher quality one from etrailer- new ones are great! These cheaper brakes squeaked from day one. I tried many adjustments all the way in all the way out cleaning nothing helped I replace them with a good quality set the squeaking immediately went away these cheap brakes are junk.

Great performance as a retrofit kit on my (originally unbraked) 2015 TAG Max. Amazing value and the customer support from was fantastic. I will return for any further trailer needs.


buyer beware. got my order 2 weeks late. only got half the order and it was wrong. called to return it and was told that it would take another 2 weeks to received a replacement. i have to use my trailer for a comping trip this weekend. etrailer was a good place to shop now i think its staffed by idiots. i will never shop with them again. this boys using [online]. thanks for nothing etrailer

I am very sorry to hear that the complete order will not arrive in time for your trip. I will definitely bring this to the attention of our shipping department and have our customer service team reach out to you.

The assembly that I originally received, had weak magnets, and burnishing cannot be successfully accomplished.
Etraier was kind enough to send out replacement magnets..
The whole process established a bit of frustration as a second tear down what is required.


Great quality, easy install flawless performance in my tent trailer over a few thousand miles. Would purchase again.

No issues at all after a year. Would purchase again.
James - 07/02/2022


Great value, easy to assemble, works as should. Easy to adjust, and has held up very well.


The items arrived very fast. Need to remove 1 star because brake assemblies were packed loose in box and may have been damaged. Hoping for the best.


Fit perfectly easy installation.


Product fit the trailer with no problem. Satisfied with trailer service.


They were exactly the same and fit was exact.


Purchased electric brakes for a camper. Good price
Easy instructions seem to work fine.


First purchase but not the last. Got them super quick and fit perfectly. Linda was awsome and a true asset for the company. I'd recommend E-Trailer to everyone for any and all trailer needs.


Great price and great product, although packaging was inadequate. Brake drums were boxed, but brake back plates were just in the box loose. One of the brake shoes got a chunk taken out of it and one of the magnets was detached from the plate, and the clip and spring were loose in the bottom of the box. Luckily I was able to locate all the parts and reassemble it. Brake backing plates should have been packaged better.


Great price and ships fast


I worked directly with Tiffany H. She had great communication and follow-up. Very knowledgeable, friendly. Parts she recommended are good quality, proper fit.


Great price, easy install and adjustmen t.

After a year these brakes are still holding up well. Easy to readjust and seem to have good braking power still.

Quick shipping and everything fit perfe ct


Easy install and right on the
Installation still to come so will update after the install.


Easily installed and they work like they are supposed to.


Easy to install and a great price!


Brakes were weak, had to run controller on level 12. Lost two of 4 dust caps on first trip. eTrailer would not replace dust caps. Bought replacement caps elsewhere. I would buy name brand next time.

Manually adjusted electric trailer brakes do require an initial adjustment, and need to be readjusted occasionally. To adjust the brakes, use a brake adjustment tool to turn the starwheel on the adjuster to expand the brake shoes until the wheel is very difficult to turn by hand. Then back off the starwheel in the other direction, about 10 clicks until the brakes drag slightly. Make sure all brake assemblies are adjusted in the same manner. Check out the video see link. Beginning at the 4:23 mark, our installer shows how to adjust your trailer brakes.
