Where can I get a book or is there a website with diagrams of how to perform basic maintenance on trailer (brakes, bearings, etc)?

I am particularlly interested in the brakes on my trailer. They are currently disconnected, but after 20 minutes on the road the wheel/rim is too hot to touch.

Contact your dealer to find out what braking system you have. You can get a owners manual for the system. When I converted my '89 trailer to disc brakes in 1997, UFP, Unique functional products was the products I used for the installation and they sent me the installation and owners manual/parts list with the parts package and it contains all the info needed too maintain the system. You may want to contact them for a owners manual, as the systems MC uses are very simular and should be maintained with the same general procedures.
