Electric Trailer Brakes (Where to buy)
So I bought a trailer a few months back with the thought of moving from Phila Pa to Chattanooga Tenn, its 25', swing doors. Paid $3000. Itís pretty rough, lots of dents, and replaced sheet metal. The J.O. who sold it assured me everything would be in working order, so I took the drive to Beltsville Md, on a Thursday night (because he all of the sudden just had to get rid of it). Tires are junk and the brakes werenít working, so I pulled the hubs off to find the brakes didnít even have shoe material left. And the magnets had ground into the inside of the drums. It is my understanding of how these work, that the magnet actually hits the drum inside face, and pull the cantilever, and that is how the shoes engage? So if my drums face is destroyed, that means I need to replace all the e-brake assys, and drums. The best i have found is on eBay a guy sells the brake and drum in pairs for $133+35 shipping. Anyone know where I can find anything cheaper?
