Hot rear brake rotor

I've noticed the last few times I drove somewhere I smelled what seemed like hot brakes or burning rubber. I knew it couldn't be the brakes. Then this evening I happened to walk past the rear passenger wheel after a 60mile trip and felt heat coming from it I reached in and touched the rotor and it nearly burned my hand. Could it be a bad wheel bearing?

Your brake caliper is probably hanging up and is causing the brakes to drag. Very common on Super Dutys.

Pull the tire. Loosen caliper. Remove pads and slider clips. Clean clips and caliper. Then re install

Don't forget to grease all moving parts as well... Expect where the rotor and brake pads make contact with each other of course

your piston may have an issue internally so even after your grease everything it may hang
