Rockwood 1940LTD Electric Brake

Hi guys,

I'm having some problem with my electric brake on my 2007 1940ltd. Can someone tell me what's the brand and the model of the brake assembly? I beleive they are 7 x 1 1/4 but don't know anything else.

Thank you

They're usually supplied as a complete axle assembly. If you can find ID on the axle, check their site for parts.

Out of curosity, what's the problem with the brakes?

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Pretty sure it's the magnet. The voltage is fine so my guess would be the magnet or something seized inside.

I want to order a new magnet and new bearings, that's why I need the axle/brake model.

I'm assuming that the wheel is seized and won't turn. Will it turn with the brake drum removed. If it still won't turn, it's probably a bearing.

No the wheel is fine, I'm talking about the brake mecanism. Maybe they just need adjustment but I have a hard time trying to turn the adjusting bolt.

Well, you know what they say about the word 'assume'.

You can try a dousing with WD40 or something similar to free up the ajustment assembly...worse case would be replacing the adjuster.

Dave

Edit: Looks like they're only $42 per side for the whole brake assembly...Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies at Trailer Parts Superstore

wow Dave_Monica that's a nice find!! I won't bother with a 25$ magnet if I can get the whole assembly for 42$.
