I am looking to install trailer brakes on my popup camper 1995 Jayco 1006 . Presently it does not have brakes but does have the mounting flanges on the axle. I contacted a local Jayco dealer who was able to give me the sizes for the outer bearings, race, and seals, which are as follows : LM44649 Outer bearings L44610 Race 010-009-00 Seals they were unable to give the inner bearing size and other information regarding the hubs/drums and required electric brakes. I have a 4 bolt Pattern on my wheels. here is some additional information approximate dry weight w/stand equip 1515 lbs approximate dry axel weight w/ stand equip 1405 lbs please could you let me know if you need any additional information. could you also give a brake down of cost including trailer brake wire 20 feet a standard brakeaway kit and brake controller. your help in this would be greatly appreciated

We have just what you would need. Thanks for getting me the bearing information as that allowed me to piece together what hub you would need.

For a hub and drum you would want the part # 8-173-16UC3. This will fit your spindle and wheels as it has a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. For brake assemblies you would want the part # 23-48 for the right hand side and part # 23-47 for the left hand side.

For a breakaway kit you would want the part # 20099.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer brakes.

You would use a junction box like part # 38656, and some 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 to run the brake output circuit from the junction box to the brake assemblies. Each brake magnet will have two wires exiting it. One wire will ground to the trailer frame, the other will attach to the brake output circuit. The junction box provides a neat and weather-protected way of joining the trailer connector to the trailer wiring.

The wires from the existing 4-pole would connect to the appropriate terminals in the junction box, and the wires from the # H20046 would connect using the same terminals. Be sure to look at the table I provided, as the wire color code for the H20046 wiring won't match up color for color with the typical trailer wiring code.
