SUBJECT: # 13543: Trailer brakes dragging heating hubs

Submitted by Rich Mulder (67.232.144.145) from NEVADA on 7/16/2011 6:53:00 PM

Have a ez loader trailer with a TZX200 Skeeter. Brakes on the trailer are dragging causing both hubs to get hot. Replaced actuator, all brake lines and calipers only to have the same problem. Tires spin freely after bleeding but have a light drag. Lubed all components of calipers. After disconnecting lines and opening calipers, hubs are cool after towing so it is definately a brake dragging problem. Hauled boat from GA to NV with not problems, pulled boat out of lake one day and developed this problem.

    Sounds like the pads are binding on the pins, relube the pins.

    If it were me I would replace the pins. Cleaning and lubing caliper pins is only a temporary fix. You should also clean the contact surface where the caliper halves slide on each other.
