The service dealer is usually the culprit, telling the disc brake equipped Airstream owners, that parts for them are not available.
Their untruths lead to money in their pockets.
Granted, sometimes things go wrong with those old style disc brakes, but they have always been repairable.
For several years, we are the only Airstream dealer left that has repair parts for those original disc brakes.
Since you now have electric brakes, someone had to add brake wiring to the trailer.
Check that wiring out, from the 12 volt
connector to each wheel.
That brake wiring should be completely hidden, other than where it comes out of the chassis and goes to each brake assembly.
If any of the wiring other than what I mention is exposed, it can, over time, be damaged. Recess it within the underbelly.
Should you decide sometime in the future, that you want disc brakes, wait until the axles need replacing as well.
New style disc brakes, "do not" need a source of vacuum.
