New 2010 Self-adjusting brake problems

Is anyone else having major squeeling problems eminating from the brakes of their tt? We have had it back to the dealer, and Jayco feels the squeel is a result of tweeking that needs to be done to the new fangled brake they started to install on the 2010's. I guess Dexter (brake company) and Jayco are trying to find a fix and we may be their guinea pigs. Apparently we can still use the tt while they try to figure out a fix as it isn't affecting the brake or compromising them.

Update: Just heard back from our dealer. They spoke with "Dexter" who said they were having problems with the magnets and have authorized replacement of all four (they will be replacing the entire four brake assembly). Only hassle now is having to make the 8 hour $140 (gas) round trip to get it done *pout*. But we will make the best of it and spend some extra time camping down in that area

We have a 2010 Jayflight G2, is this something we should be concerned about?

We only knew ours was one with probs because of the constant squeeling as it moved down the road fast or slow. I didn't ask if the brakes ultimately would have failed had we not got the replacement.

We actually will be traveling down next week to get our brake assembly replaced and have warranty issues taken care of.

Interesting thread. We are getting some scraping sounds from our 2010 Jay Flight 22FB axles. I don't know if I'd classify it as a squeal. I am guessing it is either brakes or bearings, and it is coming from both sides. The trailer has only been used a couple of times camping. I hear it at low speed. I am taking it in next week to have it looked at. Will post up results.

Mike

Maybe they'll upgrade your brakes disk.

We have a 2010 19bh , The first time out I heard the brakes or wheels squeaking , also the 2nd time heading to the campground , but on the return it seemed to have stopped . To try to stop the squeak , I used only the trailer brake to slow down few times to get them hot and seat them . I dont know if the brakes had not had a long enough break in period , up until then we had towed it only around 100 miles we are heading out this weekend and i hope its gone , if I still hear it I guess its off to the dealer to see what they find , Kipper

We actually have the new brake assemblies installed (since February). Only took the tt out once since, but it seems to have done the trick

I have a new Jayco 23B with the same brake issues you describe. Did you have to jump thru hoops to get the brakes replaced under warranty?

No, no hoops for us, dealer took care of everything but there was the hassle of having to drive down for diagnosis and once again to have new brake assemblies installed. The brakes inspection was ok, but, because this was a new issue with the new 2010's, the tech wound up calling Jayco several times doing the "hit and miss" routine trying to diagnose the prob. Jayco knew that some Ford trucks had something to do with squeel because of the new integrated brake, so the tech disconnected the brake and the squeel was still there. They then greased up the brakes like mad.... still a squeel although not as loud. Ultimately, after all else failed, they spoke with Dexter and learned of the magnet issue. Good luck and let us know what your problem turned out to be
