Adding Electric Brakes to Second Axle of Tandem Axle Carson Trailer


I have a two axle flat bed trailer from Carson Trailers. I installed Trailer breaks on the front axle last year. I am curious if its possible to install trailer breaks on the back axles as well, or if just one axle is recommended.


Helpful Expert Reply:

You can certainly install brake assemblies and drums on the rear axle of your tandem axle trailer, and they'll bolt right up as long as the axle has a brake mounting flange installed on it.

If the rear axle uses the same bearings, and the hubs have the same wheel bolt pattern, you can use the same # AKEBRK-35R-SA and # AKEBRK-35L-SA brake assemblies and # AKHD-550-35-K hubs you used last time.
