So I live in PA and my wife wants to take a long trip south in early March. So knowing that our travel trailer was due for new brakes I decided to do the smart thing and replace them this last fall while it was warm before I winterized it. That way I would not be freezing my fingers doing it in February. [emoticon] Also took the time to add new wheels and tires.

So easy to do when you just buy complete assembly on backplate.

4 bolts/2 wires.


Good job!

Did you burnish new shoes....?
(30/30/30-----30 stops from 30 mph with 30 second cool downs between----gentle braking not hard wheel stopping ----wheels should not lock up/stop while doing this procedure)


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Thanks
Yes I did something along those lines. I kind of lost count. Yes the complete assemblies are the way to go. It took me a day per side as it was. But I took the time to repaint all of my frame while the brakes and wheels where off. Plus being interrupted by a ten year old. [emoticon]

Are those self adjusting? That should save some hassle. Actually I was expecting to see disk brakes go on. Anyway those should be good to go another decade.

I can't see a darn thing wrong with the old brakes.
