Hornet 31RBDS Brakes

I have a 2010 Hornet 31 RBDS and the time has come to replace the trailer brakes. How much work is this to take on by yourself? They started squeaking pretty bad last trip and I dont want to take the TT out again until they are done. Any idea on cost and time? Thanks in advance!

Could be from rust if it sits alot. Pull one wheel and look. Think about wheel bearing at the same time. All that work is not much trouble. Even utube will have folks showing how. I will guess here a shop would charge 2-3 hours labor and several hundred for parts (I have not done it in about 15 years)

We use the trailer regularly so rust shouldn't be an issue. I will be sure to check the wheel bearings when I have the tires removed.

There are 'ready built' assemblies available at trailer supply places such as Red Neck Trailer (don't know if there are any in your area). The brake assemblies will come with the shoes, magnets, springs, etc. already assembled onto the backing plates. Unbolt the old - bolt up the new. I would check somewhere besides an RV dealer as their prices tend to be higher.
