Will Self-Adjusting Electric Trailer Brakes Fit Dexter 3,500 lb Axles


Just bought a 6x14 United enclosed trailer. It has break away brakes but not electric driving brakes. The trailer has dual dexter 3500# torsion axles. Am I correct that these would be the correct purchase to add electric brakes as long as the drum size is correct?


Expert Reply:

Yes, you are absolutely correct; the self-adjusting electric trailer brakes for your Dexter 3,500 lb axles are indeed the part number you referenced:

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

The # AKEBRK-35-SA fit 10" drums, which is exactly what your Dexter 3,500 lb hub will have, so these are going to work for you. The only other thing you'd need for installation is the mounting hardware, the Mounting Hardware for 10" Brake Assemblies # BRKH10B.
