Trailer Brakes

We are now 4 hours from home, camping for the weekend. At a gas stop, I checked all 4 trailer wheels for heat (quick bare hand on the rim.) One was noticeably warmer than the other three. Also noted some brake dust on that wheel only.

Do I have a problem? Should I be concerned? And is there anything I can do?

Thanks, Gang!

Sounds like you may have one brake that has been adjusted tighter than the others. Is this your first trip? Have you recently replaced the brake shoes? I would start with a proper brake adjustment.

It's actually the second trip in the brand new TT. First trip was 50 miles or so, just a "break-in quickie."

I'm suspecting the one drum is set a little tighter. It didn't seem to be getting hot enough to start a fire, so I think I'll let the dealer have a look at it early next week.

Thanks for the quick reply,
