Has anyone had any issues with 2006 ProStar and brake calipers locking up? Mine locked up tonight and blew the oil bearings before I could get it home. Any input would be helpful.

Most of the time this is because of lack of maintenance. The calipers need to be greased to keep moving freely.

Yup. My 06 trailer that had never seen much moisture (nevada), only launched a boat maybe 10 times was hanging up when I bought it. Take the calipers off and anti seize all the bushings, bolts, threads and where the caliper slides on the backing plate. Made a big diff on mine.
Make sure the piston isn't corroded too, shouldn't be, but..... If you can squeeze it back in without too much effort they're fine.
