If you have to back off on the adjuster that many clicks to get free wheeling you may have gone to a point beyond the through of the magnet arm and thus Poor Brakes if brakes at all.

Since the rear shoes are burnt and need replaceing you will find it is cheaper to buy complete new backer plate assemblies on line then shoes from a local shop.

You know, Uwe isn't that far off. 10" disk brake conversions for a one axle trailer aren't that much, especially if you'd have to do it anyway secondary to cheap brakes that you have now. Stick a surge brake hydralic actater on there (a 14" trailer won't need electric brakes like our trailer do - if it doesn't have one already), and cost should be quite minimal.

Just a thought.

No - the wheel has always spun freely. you could hear that the brakes were rubbing a little at first and that stopped after the first backing off I did. But apparently that was not enough.

Yes - new setup is going to be in the works. I can do that myself easily so why not.
