Replacement Electric Trailer Brakes For 6,000 lb Trailer Axle


Round brake magnet replacement - The trailer I bought is 16X8, homemade I bought it from a scrapyard, So I know nothing about it. Friends say its a 6k plus axle, I didnt find anything on the axles. So please help me find out which ones. Dont even know the age of it. 12" x 2-1/4"


Expert Reply:

The round brake magnets are no longer made, as electric trailer brakes now use a more oval shaped magnet, so you'll need to replace the electric brakes. There is an option for a 6,000 lb axle for electric brakes that will will fit your 12" x 2-1/4" drum, which are from Dexter:

- Dexter Electric Brake Kit for 4 Bolt or 5 Bolt Flange - 12" - Left/Right Hand Assemblies - 6K # 23-105-106-09

You will also need the mounting hardware, the Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Brake Assemblies # BRKH12.
