weak brakes

So i've been noticing that my trailer doesn't quite have the stopping power it used to. the brakes are still there (i think), but i was sitting in my buddy's truck when he was pulling his x45 with a silverado 1500 and that stopped a heck of alot better than my star with the tahoe, definitely think its the trailer. I've also noticed that the trailer doesn't 'jump' when the boats not on it and i brake firmly.

where do i start on this one? brake pads? (havent heard any squeals when the pads are getting low) replace the brake fluid? bleed the brakes? service the master cylinder?

trailer are definitely not my specialty....
