Many people are unsure when to go to their local trailer repair shop. Well, there are several signs that you should look out for.
On is when you hear a grinding or squealing noise. When the brake pads wear down, the metal shims attached to the pads will start to make contact with the brake rotor, causing this noise.
It’s a sign that the brake pads are worn and must be replaced.
If your trailer takes longer to stop or you feel a pulsation in the brake pedal, it could be a sign that the brake pads or brake system need to be serviced. This could be caused by worn brake pads or a problem with the brake system’s vacuum or pressure.
Leaking brake fluid is another reason to visit your local trailer repair shop. If you notice brake fluid pooling under your trailer, it could signify a leak in the brake system. This could be caused by a problem with the brake system’s master cylinder.
Some trailer brakes are equipped with warning lights that illuminate the dashboard if there’s a problem with the brake system. This could indicate a problem with the brake system’s vacuum or pressure, worn brake pads, or a malfunctioning brake caliper.
It’s important to address any of these issues as soon as possible, as worn or faulty brakes can increase the risk of an accident.
