5th Wheel - triple axle brakes

After 9 years without an inspection, or a replacement it's about time I replace my brakes and magnets. (Likely to be drums too).

What should I expect this to cost??

Check your drum size/axle ratings and then go to eTrailer.com they have a huge list of available brake assemblies or just the parts, what ever you need is there somewhere.

With all the on line parts houses it shouldn't be to hard for you to figure out. Besides you forgot to tell us what rig you have, the year, what axle size, are you gonna do the work, or take to a shop.
Perhaps you can post a picture?

You really should give up a little more info, don't ya think!

Regardless of the cost, do it right and get new drums as well. They cost about the same or less than having the old drums turned (since with electric brakes, there are 2 surfaces that need to be turned). Besides, new drums come with new bearings and seals.

Nine years and the brakes are still working says the trailer isn't on the road much.

Costs ?? Runs from one arm to both legs.
Depends on axle sizes..... on a tri axle that can use 5.2K/6k/7k/8k lbs.

There are several webs that sell axle replacement parts.

I have a equipment trailer mfg down the road from me so I can get Dexter or Rockwell American axle parts from them cheaper than the internet price plus shipping.
Check your area for a non RV trailer dealer. Sometimes these guys can beat a inter net price.
