Okay, so the other 3 drums are just fine. The other pair of shoes on the same axle look like they could do with replacing though.

Strange how just one drum can be in such rough shape compared to the other 3?

At least it's not going to cost as much to get it all back together.

Now have one new Dexter drum and pair of backing plates c/w shoes & magnets. Only a few more $$ to get complete backing plates instead of shoes only. At least I don't have to worry about the old magents being any good or not. Just threw another $400 at the TT. [emoticon]

Guy at the trailer shop thought perhaps sand & gravel got inside the drum. Both set of shoes on the rear axle needed replacing. Could make sense that the front tires kick up stuff off the road into the rear wheels?
