2010 Braking system

There is certainly something to be said for "If it works don't fix it"! Sure glad I have an 09 model.

Update to the Previous Update! Epic!

Ugh! OK, squeal returned! Last month was the first chance we had to take tt back in after sitting since October. Tech said this time they just cleaned up the backing plates which was to get a better visual of what is going on. They turned (shaved) the drums to make the surface flat where the magnets rides on. Nothing was done to the magnets but cleaning. I was worried about brakes having been compromised but he said that there was minimal if any impact.

Brakes didn't squeal during the 4 mile drive to the c/g. But! When we drove home last week, there it was! The squeal!! Of course, we yet again contacted the dealer.
Service manager just emailed to say he "...just got off the phone with Dexter. They have found a squealing problem with a particular brake pad type. They are sending me a new set of pads. They feel that the timing of the new brakes that were sent could of fallen within that lot. They were good with us resurfacing the armature contact point."

Ok, so it will be in May when we get the new pads.... Will post udpdate again then

They must have fixed the problem by the 2011 model year. I haven't heard any squeals from my 26BH brakes in the 10,000 or so miles I've put on them. Hope the new pads fix the problem for you.

Oh, one other thing that several techs told us is to ALWAYS disconnect electrical connection between tv/tt prior to backing up. I guess you can do it initially to "set" the brakes (self-adjust) but each time you back the tt, it makes the brakes adjust tighter and tighter. I guess that may be a good question to ask Dexter.

Healthi, do the brakes squeel all the time like something is dragging or just when the brakes are applied?

Always... fast, slow, braking. Pretty much if the tt is moving, there is a squeal. Kinda sounds like ree-er-ree-er-ree-er. LOL, can one "visualize" re-err?

I don`t think the non G2`s, ( standard Jayflights), have the self adjusting brakes. Maybe that`s a good thing! I have heard mine make a slight squeeling noise when leaving the CG at slow speed but it always goes away. Perhaps that`s because I backed up with the connector plugged in.

healthi , Thats the way our 2010 19bh is , Ive read you post about it a year or so ago, we have had ours back twice , just picked it up last week and the dealers tech said we had no problem , then we hooked up went about 10 feet squeaking all way .the tech came out and followed along the trailer and said we have no problem the brakes are fine , Ive been a mechanic my whole life and I cant believe there is nothing wrong . When driving I keep close eye on our brake temps with an infer red thermometer when we stop. Left front wheel is around 25 degrees warmer than the others , not too far out of lines with the others , let me know what happens ,

Sounds like the shoes are dragging all the time, even if only a little, by Kipper and healthi`s posts saying the noise is constant.

If self adjusting brakes are working properly they will not get to tight. Most self adjusting problems are that the brakes don't self adjust.
