The Dexter ID number for axles made after 2001 is a nine digit number pressed into the axle directly underneath the words "DEXTER AXLE". If you will e-mail Dexter that number and ask for brake and seal information they will send you the correct Dexter numbers, which you can use to order or cross reference to other manufacturer's parts.
If you bought your trailer used and are unsure of the service history, you've got the right idea to pull the drums and check the brake components and bearings.
By the way, the Dexter Complete Service Manual is on this site - at the top of the forum, "Home, Forum, Photos, Manuals". Lots of information in that manual.
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.
