How to remove brake drum from a 2006 FR TT Surveyor model SV210

Hi, I am Barry and this is my first time ever attempting a Post...so please be patient. I have just bought this trailer and I am having trouble with the brakes locking up. I would like to clean the brakes, but I am not sure how to get the brake drum off. All I have done so far is remove the wheel...help!!!

On the ones that I have worked on, once you take the wheel off you can pull the hub off. Sometimes they have a little clip on a couple of the lugs but they really don't do anything.

You will have to take the small cap off the hub, remove the cotter pin, remove the big nut and the outer brg and then remove the drum.

Barry1, If the brakes are locking up, you may have to back the brakes off a little bit to allow the brake drum to slip off over the brake shoes. Good Luck!

Thank you hdmtnrider, rockfordroo, OldCoot, and Too Tall, for your input. It was just too cold and miserable today to go out and play with my new-to-me toy and I am busy tomorrow and Thursday, so Friday is the day I will try your suggestions. Even though the brakes do lock up, I am able to release them with the tow vehicle brake control box. I can easily spin the drums by hand. I have viewed the youtube video and I will be more aggressive trying to get the grease cap off. I did not notice any little clips on the lugs, but I was not looking for them either, so I will look closer on Friday. I will keep you posted...thanks again.

Even if you can "release them," you may still need to back them off, if they've worn into the drum. If they've worn the drum, then they can be in a "channel" in the drum and you can't pull the drum off because they're in the channel. If you find the drum doesn't want to come off, you may have to back them off.

You may want to pick up a new set of caps for the ends of the hubs. Just in case you destroy them taking them out. Its not uncommon.

I use a rubber mallet while spinning the wheel to tap them out but even then, sometimes, they get banged up pretty good.

How often (how many thousands of miles) do you need to check the brakes? I have 2100 miles on my current brakes but mostly highway about 30% braking the rest highway?
