Left front locking up

Hi all, last trip out I noticed the left front tire locking up, very smoky and not good. Pulled both left wheels down today and didn't find anything amiss. Will check the wires next for rodent damage. Other than these I'm open to suggestions.......

While I was in there I noticed the shoes and magnets have about 50% life left probably wouldn't be a bad idea to replace, anyone have an idea who would be a good vendor for brake parts?

Not sure of the best vendor, but did find on mine it was about the same money to buy the new backing plates with everything on them than to buy individual shoes magnets, etc. & much less work & mess.
Personally I'd try eTrailer & price the Dexter backing plate assemblies.

I just did the ones on our Seville. While you have it torn down for that I'd do the bearings as well.

I used the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Assemblies - 7K. The eTrailer invoice shows $171.42 for the set.

Thanks Al, sounds like a plan, Dexter backing plates will fit on Lippert axles ok?

They certainly will. Check my posts in http://www.crossroadsowners.com/foru...ncy-13622.html about bearing issues. I posted all the part numbers for the brake backers and bearings on that. I think I also put the Lippert hotline phone number in there (those guys were a lifesaver the day we lost the roadside rear bearing).

One other thing on brakes and such. I read somewhere that you need to surface not only where the shoe contacts but also where the brake runs. I'm not sure exactly where I saw that but that might be a fair question to ask the Lippert guys.

At any rate, the axle place I went to when I lost the bearing seemed to think that it was more cost effective to replace the whole hub assembly rather than try to drive new bearing races in. Turning the brake surface isn't terribly expensive but I suspect not every shop can handle surfacing the electric brake surface.

Have checked to make sure the brakes on the right side are working?

Like Travelin Texans said, etrailer and replace the whole backing plate. Cost is about the same, and should be four bolts and reattach the two wires. After that, get the wheels off the ground and adjust the shoes appropriately. Then pull the brake away pin/cable. Al your brakes should lock up as long as your battery is charged. If not your issue is the brake assembly or trailer wiring. Put the brake away cable back in. If your still having problems when driving with a particular brake, I would check your trucks wiring to make sure it’s putting out proper voltage. I don’t have much experience in that part to add more.

Also, yes, you need to check for damage, clean and repack your bearings, especially on that hot wheel.

Bearings, would be my suspicion for the wheels locking up.
