Once the pads or shoes are contaminated by grease they are junk. As others have said the oils from the grease is adsorbed by the pad/shoe material and they will never be safe to use. Spraying brake cleaner on the pad/shoe will not remove the oils. The cleaner is only for removing brake dust, dirt, and oil/grease from the metal parts.

When it comes to hydraulic brakes in your car or truck, brake fluid on the pads/shoes is contamination.
Totally agree.

I have 48 hrs to unload and load before and after a trip. Other than washing, working on a vehicle in public view is not allowed.

That is plenty to do your brake work. Just have the side that you are working on away from the street. At least on my street, I am friends with all my neighbors and the patrol wouldn't even know.


Are you allowed to work on it where you store the trailer? Brake work requires so few tools that its a pretty quick easy job. I have a battery powered impact wrench to take off the lug nuts so that makes things quick.
