Electric Brakes (2002 C25ft lassic) Testing

Ok, just purchased a 2002 25ft Classic. Would like to check if the brakes work reasonably well. TV is a 7.3 liter Ford f250 with a 5001 Draw Tite electric brake controller. Felt some pulls from the AS brakes driving it back from Tenn to Ga. Should I removed the wheels and check the magnet and state of the drum pads? Thanks in advance!

Yes you should. Unless you know when last service you will need to pull the wheels and inspect the brakes and bearings ( that is if you have serviceable bearings). If you know how to re-pack them get some grease and a new set of seals and go for it.

These are just things that need to be done.
