Brakes on a tag axle

I am thinking ahead here because I know my 1984 Holiday Rambler Imperial is going to need the tag axle brakes serviced before going anywhere this spring or summer. I know the axles were made by Dexter. I know the brakes were made by Master Brake Co. (no longer in business). I have diagrams and service manuals on the Mor/Ryde tag axle. What I need to know is what size brakes are on it. I'm not to the point I can take the drums off and look for myself. Just wondering if someone might know what size shoes I need to order.

Thanks Dave, I had already done a search for tax axle and had found that page. It is full of good info, however, it doesn't tell much about the actual brakes themselves. I guess, until I actually pull the drums and look at what I've got, I just won't worry about it. There is a good possibility that the shoes I presently have are still in good shape. I'm not sure about the rest of the system, though.

You'll probably have to pull a wheel and remove the shoes and take to NAPA or some other good auto supplier. The Mor-Ryde tag on my '96 Bounder used F250 shoes, but I don't recall the year or size.
