Do I need to do anything to check the brakes on my Weekend Warrior LE 3305 before every trip. Or do I need to service them, grease or anything else? Those who have or know about the W.W. brakes would be most helpfull. I have never touched them and not sure what to do. The LE 3305 is a triple axle and I have a few thousand mile on them. Nothing to outragouse. Thanks for the help.

How much is several thousand? I ran my slc for 3 years and almost 15k before the first check. I found that one magnet was laying in the drum, had some wires shorting inside the drums and the bearings were almost past due for grease. The first check is probably the most important in my opinion due to the fact that the factory doesn't do its job very well. I would do a complete bearing regrease and check the brakes for condition at least within 10k miles. The brake shoes won't be worn but other problems can show up and it doesn't hurt to know how the grease is. My 20 cents.

I only have a few thousand miles on mine too. But I'm going to check them this Spring when I grease the bearings just to be safe.

Before I took off on my last trip, I serviced the WW bearings and rotated the tires. I probably had about 10K to 12K on the rig. Brakes and bearings all looked good. I lubed the inner and outer bearings and also the shackle bolts. Nothing too difficult for a weekend mechanic.
