Brakes drag when pulling trailer...
F350, 4x4, 180k
Last month installed all new brake rotors/pads. Inspected calipers. Etc...
Only known issues in this area in ABS light on the dash (ie most likely wheel sensor)
Alright, very strange problem. My truck drives and stops great under normal daily driving. Recently I hooked up a nice/new car hauler trailer with a pig tail connector. Everything seemed to be working fine, except the truck seemed to a bit sluggish. Drove it roughly 10 miles empty to pick up a vehicle. After stopping and getting out, I could smell the driver side rear wheel. Smelled like the brake was cooking! Threw a little snow on it and it sizzled right off. Wtf. Trailer brakes are not dragging (at least I dont believe so). and no other wheel was producing a smell. Or super hot. Disconnect the trailer and it no longer drags. Very strange. Anyone have an idea before I take it to the damn dealer??
