1995 Solaris T1550 Brakes

I am looking for brakes for my camper. A lot of 10 x 2 1/4 brakes out there but which one will work is the question.
Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Try Etrailer, the 10X2 1/4 manual adjust seem to be pretty much the same it would help also if you knew who made the axle. The etrailer guys are pretty helpful give them a try.

Hi,

Etrailer is a good place. I buy a lot from them.

Also for Dexter parts there is Eastern Marine. Also a good place and I buy a lot from them too. So there are at least 2 good choices to pick from.

https://www.easternmarine.com/trailer-brakes-electric

The Dexter 10 x 2 1/4 brake assembly is very common on 3,500# axles. Heads up though mixing brands. Dexter parts within the brake assembly do not interchange with Alko, or Lippert or many other brands, yet the entire brake plate assembly can interchange.

Often times you buy an entire new brake plate assembly cheaper than buying just the replacement brake shoes. And then you get all new magnets etc.


The bearings and seal are standard parts, you can get them from Etrailer or Eastern Marine or many times your local auto parts store. They just need the numbers off the bearing races and cones and grease seal.

Hope this helps

John

Yep if you need more than just brake shoes the entire assembly would be the way to go if it is not welded to the axle some are some aren't the smaller campers tend to be welded. I never priced them but it's possible f you need magnets etc buying an assemble and transferring the parts might be cheaper. The last magnets I bought were OEM and quite pricey like $40+.
