We've never checked the temp on the brakes. How do you do it?

We will definitely post the next update!

Man, I'm kinda glad I have an 09 right about now!

Really though, I'm glad Jayco is working with ya'll to fix this issue.

Before I start my season in June I'm getting the brakes inspected, tires balanced, axles checked and lubed, re-grease the Hensley and make it look purty, check the China bomb tires, and give her a good coat of 303.

One time, I saw an 18 wheeler with one trailer tire turning more slowly than the rest. Needless to say, the tire was smoking. Don't know why the driver didn't see it. He didn't get too far down the road, and that tire blew out. Sure hope no one experiences that with their Jayco. Having said that, I'm certain Jayco will do their very best to resolve the problem.

Hey David, Iv'e seen a TT going down the road with one of the tires ON FIRE- and the driver had NO idea this was happening. I honked my horn at him and signaled to pull over NOW! We put it out, but it did some damage. Could have been way worse though.


P.S. I hope I'm not scaring anyone with a 10' model!

I've had my rig in twice for this noise, and both times they inspected all wheels and did some tweaks and said noise was gone. Both times I gave them a copy of this thread. They also said everything looked fine. I heard the noise as soon as I got home. The dealer is about 1/ 1/2 hours away, so not a cheap trip. It'll be going back before the warranty is up in the fall.

I presume the trailer brakes are the drum type, rather than disk type. Drum brakes are the design which often incorporate self adjusters. Rubbing noises in drum brakes indicate an interference problem. It's quite possible, the noise is from the edge of the brake shoe rubbing on the vertical surface of the drum. This is a guess on my part. If this guess has merit, then the condition would not impare the stopping ability of the brakes. It could, however, result in the brake shoe becoming warped, and the drum becoming scored. Both would mean an early replacement of the brake system. These are my thoughts on a possible explanation, not a statement of the actual condition.

Hope your 2010 models can be resolved. Next week, we bring home our new 22FB, 2011 model. Am curious if we will experience the same brake situation. Time will tell.

The brakes on our 33rlds were making really bad noises, took it in and the spring broke that is by the adjuster and the adjuster fell out. Went down to look at it and to my surprize it did not do any damage to the drum. Only problem is that it is taking a really long time to find the parts to fix. Had to cancel our trip for next week. Really not a happy camper right now. Hopefully they will have it fixed and the DW and I get get on camping. Later Ernie

Wow....a broken spring. That should just not happen. The spring must not have been tempered properly.

I use a non contact thermometer , when I pull into a rest stop just aim at the wheel and you get a temp . Do all four wheels they should be around the same readings , if one is alot hotter there may be a problem .

Kipper! Ironic... I showed your post to Don. He showed me the HF ad that came in the mail yesterday. He has been wanting to get the laser gun thermometer. He never considered using one of those to check the heat of the wheel! So, looks like we will be getting a non-contact thermometer. Thanks for the suggestion!
