Are my breaks stuck 2013 Roo 233s

I turned my trailer around today in preparation of heading out tomorrow. I had it facing one way in my driveway for easier access to the yard and enjoyment while it sat. Anyway. When I turned it around, I noticed that it was very hard to pull. Almost like I was breaking. If I let go of the gas, I'd come to a stop. It seemed easier to backup than to go forward. I checked the ER break to make sure it wasn't pulled. It seems fine. I tried driving up and done the driveway straight just to make sure the trailer was straight and was rolling easy, still tight. How can I tell if my breakers are on and/or stuck? What do you think might be going on? Heading out tomorrow, I hope it's not serious.

Camp happy!

Gotta take the parking brake off. I hate when I forget to do that on my locomotive. Not good for the brakes.

Camper won't move.

Thanks, MuddauberE. You just solved my problem. Was about to start pulling out my hair. Brought home from "Maiden Voyage" and parked it. Tried moving it today and it wouldn't move.

Just remember also it could have been the break away cable pulling out from the trailer. Ask me how I know. Later RJD
