Upgrading from 10" x 1-3/4" AL-KO Brakes to Current Braking System on Trailer


Hello I have a pop tent trailer the electric brakes, the size are 10x1 3/4 which are now no longer available. I now need the latest and greatest up grade along with drums if I am understanding this right. So can you give me the right parts to fix my issue. What if anything do I need to to get to you to help you get correct parts thanks for your help


Helpful Expert Reply:

I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle (who took over the AL-KO brakes) and she said that standard 3,500 lb brakes and hub/drum assemblies will fit as replacements.

Since this is the case you will need the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-468-469, which have the 10" x 2-1/4" brake pads, and the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ.

The brakes come in kits of 2 and the hub/drum assembly comes in a kit of 1 so if you have 1 axle then you need 1 of the brake kits and 2 of the hub/drum assemblies.

Attached are some installation videos that you can check out as well.
