2005 MC Trailer Brakes and Rotors

Well I just redid my bearings, and thought the brakes appeared good. Then my 20 min pull home resulted in the front brakes locking up, and I thought a quick trip to NAPA auto would produce brake pads and then turn the rotors. But it doesn't appear to be the case. I guess I should have just left the bolt in the tongue and not worried with the trailer brakes as I have done on my last two boats.

Surely there is a cross over car parts number? I searched and only found threads where most likely my trailer is made by Reliable and they are out of business and so I am SOL. I am no stranger to fabrication but before I did that want to post this.

I was hoping just do new rotors and brake pads, and then I am set on the trailer.

Southwest Wheel and Pacific Trailers should have the parts you're looking for. I have Kodiak components on my 2005 trailer and between these two places, had everything I needed - even re-build parts to fix up a leaking caliper. Hope this helps!

I just did calipers and pads on my '05 single axle trailer. Kodiak 225s from etrailer.com were a straight bolt on replacement on my trailer.

Thanks... Wow 175 a Caliper... Holly Smokes. I was going to go ahead and do all 4, with new pads. But I may just do the two that locked up.

Thanks for the quick responses... My Dealer simple said... its a Reliable Trailer no parts available, check online.

Trailer refurb for $1500 - I would fix all 4 - I know not my money - but I hate bleeding lines - can't put a value on safety IMO

Why replace the calipers? Rebuild them, and put on new pads. Disc brakes are simplicity in themselves. Take (blow) the puck out of the caliper, use some fine emory cloth and brake fluid and lightly sand out the puck area checking for rust, or dirt ridges. Make the puck area smooth, without removing a lot of metal, clean completely, lube puck and new o ring with brake fluid, install in caliper, and you are home free. Just the cost of a rebuild kit which is mostly the o rings
