Brakes will lock up in reverse when they are too far out of adjustment. They will cam over and lock. This can happen when moving forward as well. But it will show up in reverse first.

Update- I adjusted all four brakes and the left rear still grabs. We had plans to travel for the holiday (without the trailer) so we were in a bit of a time crunch. I tested the brakes on the way to storage, so i'll have to pull it early for Canopener or before to tear down that wheel and see what is going on.

I just spoke with a fellow the other day who had the same problem. His turned out to be the wrong part installed in the brake,the correct part number, but there is evidently a error in the book. With this part in it the brake will lock when applied, and not release. You may have to compare the parts with the brake on the other axle. Hope this is some help. Rolland

Thanks Rolland,

Do you know what part it was?

I started another thread to discuss the possibility of centering the backing plate on the axle as I found some info on an SOB site that indicated that could be the problem. I have since removed the drum and inspected the brake assembly without finding any problem. I did notice that this brake was dragging a little more so I backed off the adjustment. We are going to the Canopener Rally in January so it will get a checkout, and if It is still acting up maybe someone there will have an idea.

Dragging brakes is not uncommon. Back off the ones that are running hot till they don't run hot. Your hand will tell you which ones are running hot.
