I faxed a copy of this thread to my dealer to see if they will call Jayco to correct my brake issue. Do you know if this is going to cause any issues to continue to tow until it can be serviced?

If the same problem as ours, they say there is no compromise to the brakes themselves; they won't fail or wear pre-maturely

That was pretty much our problem.. only our with us it was time and gas $$; it was the inconvience of the dealer being a 4 hour drive each way

Well, took ours in (about 1 1/2 hour trip each way), they jacked it up, heard the "scraping" (I wouldn't really call it a squeal, at least yet). Changed a leaking seal on one side, minor brake adjustment on the other side, and had to file down a brake adjuster wheel a bit as it was rubbing on the hub of all things. They took it for a spin w/ their tractor and of course couldn't hear anymore noise and said all is good and I can pick it up. Said all brakes and bearings looked fine. I did take a copy of this thread w/ me and gave to them when I dropped it off. Had a couple of other things looked at while there.

Got home and could faintly still hear a bit of scraping sound at slow speed. I guess I will keep a tuned ear for increasing volume and then drag it back in at another time if it gets worse or doesn't stop. Got a trip in a few weeks planned.

Mike

AS I had posted previously we have a 2010 23b which we have had brake problems since day one of ownership. Our TT is currently back at the dealer and we hope the problem will be resolved this time. Our brakes were locking up everytime we applied the brakes. WE did find out that one of the brakes was not even working at all when we jacked it up and tried to adjust the brakes before going out last trip out and before we could take it to the dealer because we felt it was just not safe. when we manually turned the tire the tires were very tight and hard to turn and they did seem to make a rubbing scraping noise.

My new 32bhds had an axle where both brake magnets were rusted to the point they were not engaging. This was in May I had picked her up 4 weeks earlier and her build date was in Feb. I believe road salt was the culprit. Anyway it was covered under warranty and now when I check the tires all 4 are cool.

Mustang,

Sounds like you may be facing the same problem Healthi and her husband faced--defective brakes from the manufacturer (Dexter). Their dealer spoke with Dexter and afterward replaced the brakes under warranty.

Print a copy of this thread and take it to your dealer or email the thread to your dealer and insist that the dealer contact both Dexter and Jayco about a proper repair or replacement. If the dealer does not make the trailer right you may need to contact Jayco directly and insist on a proper repair or replacement of the brakes. The problem you are experiencing is not normal.

If all else fails, file a complaint with the Federal Highway Transportation Department because your brake problem is definitely a safety hazard.

I have also had braking issues with my Jayco 314 BDS. The same sqeualing that was the brakes hanging up and causing them to overheat. Went through brakes on both sides, finally they beleived they had a short in the harness going to the brakes. Replaced the wiring and just had another problem on the drivers side front tire. They adjusted the brakes, pick up hopefully in next week or so, hope this fixs the problem. I have also started a thread on my camper. Dealership told me that Jayco and Dexter are aware of the braking issues
