Brakes locked up on 2001 MC trailer. I had to loosen a brake tube and bleed brakes to free up the trailer . Any suggestions on what happened.

It sounds like the pistons in the calipers froze up.

If BOTH brakes locked up and bleeding released them, then it is probably a master cylinder problem (or a common supply line problem).
The freezing caliper problem is usually not released by bleeding the fluid since that problem occurs downstream of the hydraulic system. One usually has to pry the caliper open in that case since it is the caliper piston that is sticking, not hydraulic pressure.
I THINK the freezing caliper problem was only on the 2003-4 models. :confused: Fixed on the 05's.
