I'm not being clear maybe. I replaced all trailer wiring including the breakaway. And when I had the brake fault message, I pulled breakaway and had no brakes. So I'm sure it has to be inside a wheel.

The problem with that, is if it was just a loose conection or broken wire the rest of the breaks should have activated? Unless you ran the wires in a series , then it would be at the first break hub. Or it could be in the 7 pin conection.

Two years ago I had a magnet brake lose and I had identical symptoms. It was the passenger side rear wheel which is last in line on the power wire yet I lost all brakes when I would get a brake fault warning. I replaced the backer plate and fixed issue. I will pull wheels off Friday and see what I find.

That might be it, a wire making intermittent contact in the drum itself.

Finally, but if I would have started here I would still have the three bare wires in the frame and the bad breakaway. Now I have all new wiring and breakaway and brakes are strong.
Thanks to all who responded and offered help. This remains my go to forum for RV problems and questions.
