Hub & Drum And Electric Brakes For 2,000 lb Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System

Question:

Good morning, you requested information about the following products and their compatibility for their correct operation. We are currently building a double trailer to transport two sea doo jet skis with a total dry weight of 830 lbs per jet ski. We plan to use two: Timbren Axleless Trailer Suspension System - Brake Flange Spindle - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs. Item No. ASR2000S02 This are my questions 1 Can I use the following items together? Timbren Axleless Trailer Suspension System - Brake Flange Spindle - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs. Item No. ASR2000S02 Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,000 lb Axles - 7 - 5 in 4-1/2 Item # 8-257-5UC3 Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7 - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 2,000 lbs Item # AKEBRK-2 2 To activate the electric brake of the above configuration, can I use the electric brake system for the trailer that comes with my 2021 Ram 1500 by default or would I have to purchase an electric brake controller separately? 3 If the above configuration does not work with the factory electric brake system for the trailer, what electric brake axle kit can I use that will work with the factory electric brake system of my 2021 Ram 1500? 4 Currently my Ram 1500 has a 3.5 ki lift installed with a 35 rim, what size wheels do you recommend for the 14 or 15 trailer with what size rim? Thank you for your attention and I remain attentive to your comments.

We do have the correct hub and drum as well as electric brakes you can use with the 2,000 lb Timbren Axle-Less system, though it is different than the hub you mentioned. That hub does not have the correct bearings to fit the spindle of the Timbren system, so instead, here is what you need:

- Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/ Brake Flange - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2000S02

- Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 # 84546UC3-EZ

- 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

As for the electric brakes in your 2021 Ram 1500 I believe you are referring to its OEM trailer brake controller and yes, they will work with the factory brake controller.

As for the tires, there isn't a recommended size; there are too many factors for a custom build to give any type of realistic recommendation.
