Expert Reply:

The correct braking assemblies are the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA which are self-adjusting. The correct hub/drum is the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K for EZ-Lube or part # AKHD-545-35-K for standard.

In regards to models with the parking brake feature, these are not available in self adjusting but we do carry them as the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Parking Brakes part # K23-086-087-00. If you are instead referring to a breakaway, I recommend the Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit part # 20099.
