Mine Failed on the way home

Trailer sat on dealer lot during delivery period when the lot flooded. I found two very hot hubs at Flying J scales on the way home. Investigation at home had all four shoes rubbing and I was instructed to take it to axle shop I have done business with for years. Recommendation was to remove the auto stuff and replace adjustment wheel with old version. Rust was found on adjuster parts.

Since the Mrs. is ill, we have not pulled the trailer anywhere. I was informed of brake troubles when Snow Birds come to the same shop and even new self adjust parts won't fix problems. SIMPLE. Take it out.

I also had a plugged Zurk fitting on one axle just last week during first annual inspection.

Sometimes, new is not better. Don't get wheels submerged.

Whatsupchuck, I hope your wife gets feeling better soon. I, having had boats for many years, sadly know what happens when the brakes get submerged. Taking apart and packing bearings was a semi annual chore. Even then it was likely as not to find bearings starting to go bad. On my last boat the problem was corrected by converting to oil fed bearings. I have replaced entire brake shoe/ backing plate assemblies because the wheel cylinder rusted solid. On my current boat I have had three of four calipers hang up with the brakes applied so far. I am hoping that no situtation happens that my trailer brakes get under water. If I have any bearing problems you can bet this trailer will be changed over to oil fed bearings also. What I do out of habit is feel the hubs and tires at every stop, so far so good. Jay
