RE: time to replace brakes?

Tired of worrying. Ordered new nev-r-adjust brakes. there was something ground into one of the pads that cut grooves in the hub. Will have the hub turned or buy a new hub (btw ALL "new" hubs are out of round, as in ALL have to be turned).

RE: time to replace brakes?

Not to say something noone wants to hear, but right now a right/left set of Dexter SAdjust are $185, I buy a lot of stuff from Etrailer, but they seem to want $60 more for same things.

RE: time to replace brakes?

Well I sure am glad I posted before dropping $$$$$. My pads are 1/8 inch thick at thinnest spot. So ... using the right numbers 1/8 (=2/16 duh) is halfway between 3/16 and 1/16 (duh #2). So I have ~15,500 miles (or so) on those brakes, enough to go on our trip. BTW my brakes are $185 a pair, so $370. And yes, I admit, my math sucks!!!!!

time to replace brakes?

These are Dexter self-adjust that I have dragged 15,500 miles. At zero miles (i.e., new) the pads are 0.18 inch (9/32) and after 15,500 they are 0.08 inch (1/8). So I am figuring that the pads are losing 0.01 inch every 1550 miles. If you are supposed to replace the brakes at 0.04 inch (1/16), I only have 6200 more miles until worn. I figure (My brain hurts!!) that if we are planning to go from Florida east coast to California and up to Canada, I need to go ahead and do this thankless job. I've done this before on previous trailer. All that said, I wanted to see if I am figuring this right or not. In advance Thanks

loose Alpha TPO roof beside fridge vent on roof

I just finished re-sealing the roof with Alpha 1010 sealant, and noticed that between the refrigerator vent and edge of roof, the TPO membrane seems to not be glued down. All other areas seem fine, except there. Any ideas what I should do? Bury it in sealant? Layer it with Eternabond from good area across this area? Or maybe its not a problem and I should forgetaboutit.

RE: re-caulking roof

Thanks JBarca for your insight! It is Alpha system roof, so only Dicor's "Ultra" is compatible (per Dicor, not the regular Dicor), or use the Alpha caulk.

re-caulking roof

Question: About how many tubes of caulk should I order to do all of the old cracking caulk on a 28 ft TT? I figure someone on here had done this job, and would know 'about' how much self-leveling goo is required. The quote to have someone do this for me was $660. Wow! Thanks in advance.

dexter self-adjusting brakes - starwheel

Ever since I had all 4 drums removed and turned, I get smooth non-chattering stops. I suppose because the TT sat in the driveway during the pandemic, that upon jacking up and spinning the tires, I found one that was making a weird metal on metal sound. So I took it apart. It wasn't moving freely like it should, so I lubed the contact points, which fixed it. However, I could not get the drum back on over the brake shoes. Lifting the little ratchet arm and turning the rear of the starwheel down, only made the matter worse and worse. Huh? IT TURNS OUT THAT THE LEFT SIDE STARWHEEL ROTATION IS OPPOSITE THAT OF THE RIGHT SIDE!! Took me an hour to figure that out in the boiling stroke-inducing Florida sun.
