Default Shoreland'r Brake rubbing

I have a 2015 Shoreland'r trailer with a 175 Alumacraft Throphy. It appears that my drivers side brake is sticking and squeaking when driving. Trailer might have 4K miles on it. Any chance that the pads are shot? Make a similar noise when brakes are at there wear bar. Any other tips?

Take the brakes apart, clean and lube the slide pins.

Other possibility is the caliper piston is sticking and not retracting.

There are stainless clips that the pads ride on and slip in and out. These get gunked up or even worn through. Make sure they are in good shape and clean. Could also have a caliper piston hanging up a little. Check if hub is hotter than the other side after running to the lake prior to launching.

Could also be slides are rusty take tire off and inspect. If pads are ok take caliper off and check pins that hold it and lubricate.

Rodwi,
Due to the presence of frequent water in and about the brake parts on a trailer - it is often the very best thing to do when experiencing brake problems on a boat trailer to simply do a 100% replacement of all of the brake parts on a particular wheel that is giving problems.

In a word - you may have RUST issues.

The word on the street is that rust occupies a significantly greater volume than unrusted steel occupies.

As a result - when brake parts rust, they expand and simply don't work any more.
Pins don't slide, and brakes don't rotate.

But, if you remove all of the brake parts and throw them away and start with fresh brake parts, you will be good until these brake parts rust up and start sticking again.

---
If you could purchase 100% stainless steel brake parts - you could leave the rusting issue with boat trailer brakes in the dust - so to speak, since stainless has a much lower rusting tendency that standard steel.

----------------
For example - here are some stainless steel brake parts that are absolutely essential for boat trailers used in Salt water, but they will also be beneficial to owners of boat trailers used only in fresh water.

Best wishes.
