Nev-r-lube drum out of round?

For a long time, the trailer trailer braking has pulsed, particularly noticeable when slowing to a stop. Shakes the TV. When jacked, the curbside wheel drags in one spot. I pulled the drums, saw nothing noticeable. Swapped the drums and the problem moved with the drum. Not wanting to go too far down a rabbit hole, my first thought was to purchase a preassembled drum (the bearing already in), but I canít seem to find a part number anywhere to get a price. Any thoughts?

They are VERY expensive and you will have to replace the brake shoes as well. You may be able to turn the drum at a machine shop but a good one can be hard to find. E trailer.com has them and can usually help with the part number.

I have an 18 month old Flying Cloud that shook at lower speeds just like yours, @dwogaman. One of the four drums was severely out of round per the dealer… all 4 were worn beyond life! I have about 4-5k on them.
At any rate, Dexter addressed it under warranty, thankfully.
