We're new to TTs and were previous owners of a 2000 VW Eurovan Camper.
Now we have a 2010 x-189 fds! The person I bought it from was looking to get a larger Fun Finder and sold this to me complete with WD hitch w/sway. My tow vehicle is a 2010 Nissan Frontier 4x4.
Now to my question.
When I tow, the trailer has a high pitched intermittent squealing in the drums like a brake was dragging. When I apply the brakes, the squealing goes away and the trailer stops. So, I jacked up one side and rotated the wheel by hand. It rotated fine with no resistance. Then, I pulled the drum and it looks like the magnet is dragging on the inside of the drum. Is this normal or should it stay completely away from the drum unless energized?
I've towed a lot of trailers with electric brakes and this is the first I've had with this noise. But, before I called Dexter and bugged them, I thought I'd ask the question here.
