1997 mountain aire tag axle

Hello I was going to check the brake shoes on my tag axle on a 1997 mountain aire but can't figure out how to get the dust cap off to get to the nut to remove the brake drum. Does anyone know hoe this is done since it is not flush like trailer hubs. Thanks for any help.

On the inside of the wheel you should see 2 rubber plugs 180 deg. From each other. Take one out to view the brakes.
Sometimes the plug has ready fallen out.

Thanks. I will check today but I didn't notice them yesterday. If I do need to replace the shoes is there a way to remove the dust cap since it only has about an 1/8" sticking out past the hub.
