Most motorhomes do not have a backing plate on the in side of the wheel. If you take a flashlight you can see in around the brake shoes. If the wheel seals were damaged there will be oil leaking and it will be a mess. Most times after brakes are heated they are fine. They might be sqeaky and squaky until the glaze wears off.

Just curious, if the tow truck driver did not hook up air to the M/H than I guess that the air bags did not get inflated unless they did not dump or am I missing something?

I had to get towed our first long trip and the guy didn't dis-connect the drive shaft and I didn't know either. We got towed 70 miles.
We have never had any problems since then and that was going on 4 years ago. I really lucked out I guess
Of course I learned you or they are suppose to disconnect the shaft when towed from this site irv2. I have learned so much here.
Love this site,
