Hey Creekers!

I posted this in the General Tech and Repair forum, had 50 lookers, but no help. Have any of y'all had this problem and know where I can find correct part numbers?

Need brake parts

Thanks!

You can see a brake parts breakdown at a NAPA store. They sell/can sell trailer brake stuff. You will need the brake diameter and width of the shoes. Take a pic if you didn't already. Tractor supply has some trailer brake stuff.

A 360 degree temp sounds like you have a bearing issue too. What was the condition of the brake shoes? Do they look and\or smell burnt too?

you have dexter never adjust brakes on 7000lb axles. 12" by 2" brakes. you can buy a complete backing plate for 80 bucks. it comes complete with everything but the drum. it is the easiest way to repair the brakes. likely your shoes are chewed up and over heated. you likely pay more for all the pieces you need. 5 bolts and it is changed. just remember to order left or right. this is determined by sitting in the drivers seat, facing forward. drivers side is left and passenger side is right. 24-464 left and 24-465 right part numbers.

Thanks guys. The bearings are good. The heat was cause by the parts bouncing in the drum and probably causing the shoes to scrub. Changing the whole backing plate sounds like the way to go.

I finally got around to tearing into my brake issue yesterday. After pulling it apart, I started calling around for parts. I found a place called ALLPRO Trailer in Jacksonville, FL that had manual adjust brakes. The guy said he could order the "never adjust" brakes, but he didn't recommend it. When I asked if he saw this problem very often, he said, "all the time". You can pretty much tell when some knows what they are talking about and this guy was very knowledgeable. He said anytime you have an auto adjust or auto lube system, you can be sure they will fail. It's best to do regular maintenance on manual systems. The complete brake assembly cost me $55 each, so I bought 4 of them because I don't want this to happen again. So, after leaving ALPRO, I started feeling sick. I came down with a sore throat and a fever. Maybe tomorrow, I can get those brakes installed.
Note the condition of the brake shoe. Surprisingly, the drum looks good with just a little scoring. Still, I should have replaced it and did not purchase one. The guy did let me that you cannot turn one of those drums. He said that Dexter lists the minimum diameter at 12" and that is what they measure when new. So, if anyone does turn one of your drums, they are doing it illegally!

i agree. i don't have the never adjust brakes on any of my trailers. i also never use the ezlube system. it just over greases the hubs. then the seals leak. i take mine apart every year and pack the bearings. it is the only proper way. adjust the brakes when i reassemble and good for another year.

Old School is the only way to go! Everyone I've read about who has had either either never-lube or never adjust has had serious brake or wheel bearing issues. I converted to a MorRyde IS with Kodiak disc brakes a little over a year ago. Never lube would have cost extra (as in headaches) but since I do understand things that go roundy round make a lot of heat, and heat can only be mitigated by a regularly maintained greased bearing. Same goes for brakes, I check em about every 7-9 months sine we do a lot of miles with this RV 180-220 days each year. Hydraulic disc brakes are great, already saved our Creek more'n once, a bunch of kids up north and a lot of mental anguish to boot!

Maintain it, use but don't abuse it, travel safe and enjoy your journeys
