I have a ~1999 Shoreland'r trailer equipped with surge brakes. It is a single axle trailer with
an Atwood actuator. Are these brakes really just a PITA to get and keep working correctly? Are they worth fixing?
They have never worked since I got the boat 4 years ago but I thought I'd look into getting
them working as it would be nice and much easier to stop(boat is around 3K lbs and the truck is a 1/2 ton Silverado so it stops ok just not the best) The master cylinder is dry and
has been empty since I got it and the wheel cylinders I think are froze up. One of the sides
got grease all over the shoes so those would also need to be replaced the other has
plenty of pad on the shoes.
After some pricing, it looks like a new master cylinder, wheel cylinders and shoes would be
around $150. Am I missing anything? Any other thoughts or options I should consider?
Do they make/sell brake cylinder rebuild kits for these things? Thanks for your help/opinions.
