The brakes on the left side have been replaced and the axles are still running very hot. In fact, the lugs nuts are smok'in hot, which should not be the case correct? Should I feel any heat on the lug nuts? After speaking with a different repair shop, they recommended that the drums be turned, which has not been done. That advise seems logical to me, would you agree?

Do they get hot just driving down the road with minimal braking? Or are you having lots of stop and go? The side that's cool may not even be working, they should be warm to the touch. Sounds like the brakes are too tight on the left side or are hanging up. Good luck. JR

Well I think the problem is finally fixed. They replaced the backing plate and the hubs were nice and cool after a 40 minute drive. I had my rig at Les Schwab everyday last week and they were extremely nice and professional. I will be making another camping run this weekend for my final evaluation. Thanks to everyone that has replied, what a great forum this is!

professional !!!! Repairs on critical components such as brakes by trial and error parts replacement is certainly NOT PROFESSIONAL. You could have killed someone or your family because they did not know what the H3ll they were doing.

Give an infinite number of monkey's an infinite number of workstations and you will eventually get a inteligable word. That does not make the monkeys professional writers. It just means it was lucky.

After the 2nd or third try they should have sent you to a repair shop that is experienced in trailer brakes at their expense to remidy the problem. That would have been professional. You are lucky the 3 stooges got lucky.

Shooter,

I agree repairs of this type are very important, but at no time did I endanger myself, my family or anyone else. For you to make such a statement without being present is ridiculous.
