I finally got around to trying to figure out my trailer brakes are causing the wheels and drums to get really hot even when the brakes are not on ( or even hooked up for that matter). I jacked up the and took the wheels off of both axles. When I try to move the hub, it moves with a lot of drag in it. You can hear metal brushing against metal in the drums. The trailer had sat out of use for a few years before I bought it, so i would venture to say that the brakes are the problem. Now, how do I fix this? I was thinking of buying new brakes for the trailer, but when I looked on line the prices scared me. Does anyone have any suggestions on this. Should I get the brakes lathed or something like that? How in the world do I take off the brakes and the wiring that leads into them? Is this something that I should just hire someone to do? I really need to get this trailer up and running soon!
