If you have a problem, please file the report. Its just a matter of time before some unsuspecting poor sole looses his brakes going down a mountain and someone either gets killed or injured..Unfortunately that's what it will take to get the factory to correct the problem....

Afraid they will balk at all that when the parts can be adequately cleaned. I would definitely demand the seals be removed/replaced, brgs/races inspected and the entire hub assy re-lubed. The brake linings can also be cleaned as well as the brake lining surface of the drum.

As I has previously stated, lippert replaced all four entire brake assemblies on mine for the same problem.

I think Lippert knows that they have a problem with some of these assemblies, weather they are willing to publicly admit it or not. They are not going to nit pic a warranty claim by only sending a set of pads and maybe some grease seals.

It is much easier for them to just send a complete assembly in the box ready to go.

Without taking the unit into the shop, what is the best way to determine if a particular unit is having this issue?
