Smiley’s Pro Services will do an in-depth inspection of your trailer parts to determine what condition your brakes and bearings are in, and what level of services you will need. Whether it’s your annual maintenance check, or your brakes are giving you concern after a long trip, we take the time to properly take apart your hub and examine every part.
Brake Repair and Replacement
After your brake inspection, you will receive a detailed breakdown of our findings. Standard brake repairs include:
- Replacing broken backing plates
- New brake fluid
- Resurfacing rotors/drums
- Adjusting brake mechanisms
Bearing Repacking and Replacement
Repacking a bearing entails taking apart the entire wheel, then cleaning and greasing the bearings. If your bearings have incurred significant damage, we will replace them. Even if you don’t notice any damage, having your bearings routinely checked and repacked is a great way to avoid any mobility and safety issues while driving.
Squeaking, grinding, or leaking fluid, can mean there is something wrong with your brakes. If this is the case, make sure to come in quickly so that we can do an inspection.
You should be getting your trailer brakes inspected every 12 months or 12,000 miles. It is also a good idea to proactively get your brakes checked before or after a trip with an extensive amount of mileage. You don’t want to risk setting out on a long expedition with your brakes in an unknown condition.
Your wheel bearings are essential to your trailer’s mobility. If your bearings are damaged, then your tires could potentially seize in place as you are driving. If you notice grinding or roaring sounds, excessive wheel movement, excessive heat from your hub, or your tires seize up, then your bearings are damaged and need repacking.
