Yes, I have them on my 2006, 3400RL. They seem to be fine and work as advertised.

Bought mine at a substantial discount at the fall rally & installed them myself. It was easy to do and I'm quite happy with them.

I to installed new brakes with no problems. With the install I moved up from the 6000# to the 7000# brakes.

Is this an option to be added or do you have to replace the brake assy to add this feature? Is it a big price tag item?

Try this link - http://www.dexteraxle.com/monthlyspecials

I purchased them at the fall rally last year and had them installed at Moe's Trailer Repair before we left for home. What a difference. Oh yeah, GREAT PRICE!! It pays to come to the Fall Rally.

I had nothing but trouble with self adjusting brakes. Two shops worked on them, tested and inspected the individual parts but could not solve the problems. Ruined the brakes on two of four wheels in 5000 miles. One wheel never worked at all! Replaced the system with elec/hydraulic disk brakes - all is well now. Best braking I have had on 6 rv trailers. Expensive YES but our safety is FIRST!

Had them installed in 2010 on a 2007 3400rl. Definitely an improvement.
