I need to do a brake job on my travel trailer. I want to replace all the electric brake assembly and drums. but I am not sure what weight size the axles are? Their our two axles! I have 15 in. wheels it. They have 6 lugs with a 5.50 B.C... thats what owners manual tells me. The brakes are 10.0 x 2 1/4..

In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. The first thing you will need to know is the bolt pattern of your hubs. This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out.

Next thing you will need to know is what spindle you have on your trailer. In order to do that you can either get the inner and outer bearing numbers from a hub or use a dial or digital caliper to get exact measurements of the spindle. The measurements needed are the parts of the spindle where the bearings ride.

If you get back to me with that information I will help you pick out the right hub assemblies. Or, you can follow the link I attached that will take you to the page that has all of our replacement hubs.

Based on the info you gave me the hub that would most likely fit is the part # AKHD-655-35-K. If the bearings you pull out are L44649 and L68149 this would be a fit. It also has the correct 10 inch drum. For brake assemblies you would want the # AKEBRK-35R-SA for a right hand self-adjusting assembly and part # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the matching left hand side.

You would want to first select the bolt pattern that you have, next select the inner bearing you have, followed by selecting your outer bearing, and then all the correct hubs will be listed.

Once you find the hub you need the correct brake assembly will be listed in the related parts on the product page of the hub.
