A heat sensor from Harbor Freight can show you if the drums are hot or not. I use mine to check tire temps and bearing temps at most stops.

2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
Dodge SRW 1 ton Cummins powered.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

Another note like taylorj's. My brand new 25 BHS was "bouncing" down the road because the brakes were shorting out and overloading the brake controller. Talked to a knowledgable trailer guy and he quickly diagnosed the problem as a wire near the trailer brakes rubbing against metal. Sure enough! I crawled under the TT and instantly found brake wires laying against the back side of the rear hub. Rubber coating was gone but wires still intact. It should have been strapped down at the factory so it couldn't reach over that far. Simple fix but frustrating on new TT.
