10 inch Dexter Aftermarket Brake Shoe

10 inch Dexter aftermarket brake shoes include both primary and secondary brake shoes for 10-inch backing plates.

Select the correct brake shoe from the drop-down menu and watch the corresponding image appear in the image box.

Install a larger shoe towards the back of the trailer, and a smaller shoe towards the front of the caravan.

One axle uses two pairs of shoes.

The critical thing to look for when inspecting trailer and caravan shoes is the slot or hole in the top of the shoe.

Important Notice: How a Bearing Buddy can Destroy Caravan Brakes

What is the difference between Alko and Dexter electric brake shoes?

  • The Alko park brake has horizontal slots shoes and the parking brake handle points horizontally to the ground.
  • Dexter shoes use a spring on the top to hold shoes together and the parking brake handle points vertically to the ground.

One shoe is shorter than the other.

  • The longer shoe is called the primary brake shoe, and it faces the rear of the caravan.
  • The short shoe is called a secondary brake shoe and faces the front of the caravan.

So how do electric brakes work?

The magnet, when energised will attach itself to the inside of the moving brake drum and remain connected during braking.

The attached magnet on the drum forces the brake's shoes during a forward motion causing deacceleration.

Tip: If your electric magnet and shoes need replacing, check the other components as they may also be showing signs of wear. Electric magnets need replacing when the wear holes are no longer visible.

A better solution is to buy an entire backing plate and bolt it onto the weld ring.

Caravan Electric Brake FAQ here

Bendix brake shoes manufacture superior brake shoes with excellent braking performance, however, they are not suited well to caravans and trailers. The Al-ko and Dexter brake shoe range uses a friction material more suited to the caravan industry and provide safe stopping power.
