I carried our Columbus 295rl to the shop for some warranty work and asked them to check the brakes while it was there. I had thought from day one that the brakes didn't seem to be working right. The original dealer where we bought adjusted them and said everything was OK. That dealer has since gone out of business leaving me to find another dealer for warranty work. Lucky there was another one not too far away. We bought the unit in May. It has been pulled about 1500 miles since then and guess what? We have the grease problem also. Only one wheel was really messed up but they are replacing all 4 under warranty. The shop said they would use the good red high temp grease and some seals out of their stock when I expressed concern about the Lippert seals. The grease Lippert uses could be part of the problem if it is not thick enough. Ours is a 2014 model.

I am picking ours up tomorrow. It has been at the shop for almost 5 weeks to get everything done. They have to wait on approval for every little thing. I am so ready to go camping.

Just got mine back from the dealer. They could not find any bit problems. Remover all drums and inspected. No grease & looked good. They only made adjustment. Feels some better but not what I think they should be. I have read that some of the magnets are possibly to small. I we'll keep looking to see if I can find something. Who knows, could be in the truck. Have already had 2 different controllers.

when I picked up our camper had it in the first week to have the dealer insp the brakes, (they said all good) took back home and adjusted myself. pulled all summer with marginal stopping power, took back 2 months ago and had to get FR in the issue ,but they are a no show when I call back to check on how they are going to fix... noy very happy with FR at all. went out and bought a prodigy and still will not stop it
