Anyone replace their trailer brakes? I hear a rubbing sound on the right side when I apply the brakes. Doesn't sound like a squeal. Where do you get brake shoes for these things? The hauler is an 08, I'm shocked that the brakes are going out already. WTF?

But it only makes the noise when I apply the brakes. I can't hear anything when I'm driving normal. I need to pull the wheels off and have a looksee

If you do do the brakes I need a story. If you take the brakes apart any good parts story can match them for you. But I usaully go to an axle supplier and they sell complete kits with everything for not much more.

trailer brakes usually last for several years. I would be surprised if you need new brakes.

Brian have you adjusted them ?? You might be hearing one dragging cause its loose. They dont do a good job of adjusting themselves.

We changed our brakes out to disc brakes....stops so much nicer now.

I'd love to change over to disc, but I would only do that on a Hauler I plan on keeping for a long time. I will tackle this after 4th of July. I need to figure it out before Gorman for sure. If there is a story in it Terry, I will do my best. I guess the first thing would be to check adjustment.
I could have the controller all jacked up too. Seems I can never get it right. It either stops with a jerk when I'm going slow and stopping or I don't have enough.
