'sounds like a nice trip. I remember the time last year when my wife and I decided to camp unplanned and just buy some clothes and toiletries on our way to the camping site.

Nothing is more frustrating than having something repaired improperly. The weather must be miserable.

We had been debating on whether to renew our Good Sam ERS or go with Coach-Net. I thought Coach-Net may be better...but now I'm not so sure!

Hope you can finally get it resolved on Monday.

Howard & Linda. I had the exact same problem on my Montana with the brakes locking up, after my trailer had set for six months. The problem was that the brake assembly had slightly rusted over time, and this caused the brakes to freeze and not release after the brakes were applied. I opted to replace the entire assembly, including the backing plate. It solved my problem. Dexter makes an entire kit for this. The kit includes brakes, springs, magnets, backing plate, etc. If the drum was a t 300 degrees, you will also need to replace the bearings and seals as well. The brake pad assembly needs to move freely, and the smallest amount of rust will prevent it from working. I considered upgrading all of my brakes to disk, which do not exhibit the same problem in general.
