3,500 lb Hub & Drum And Electric Brakes For Boat Trailer


Do you sell an electric brake kit for boat trailers that Includes hubs? It has 13 inch wheels. Brake mounting flange holes are 2 7/8. Can I use 3500 lb or do i need 2000 pound ? I will need electric brakes and drums. Spindle measurements as follows A 1.75inch B 1.72inch C 1.377inch D 1.06inch F 1.35

Those measurements are perfect, thank you so much, and your measurements are for a 3,500 lb axle, so you can indeed use a 3,500 lb hub and drum. Since this is on a boat trailer you will want to go with a galvanized hub, and the exact parts for the hub and electric brakes that fit are the following:

- Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized # AKHD-545-35-G-K

- Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA

- Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies # BRKH10B

This hub has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, which is very likely what you have but you will want to verify that. If you aren't sure how, I have added a link below to a help article which explains how to take a quick measurement, or you can use the printable template I also linked.
