Brakes squeaking on 2012 Classic ?

Mine is a 2012 27' Classic. As I was slowly pulling thru a campground the other day a camper stopped me & pointed out that my brakes were squeaking. Since I could not hear anything I asked him if he would drive my truck while I walked along side. Both sides were making a sound as if it was metal on metal. Since there is no dealer nearby I have a appointment with a tire company nearest my camp who thinks it might be the rotors. 1) In your experience could it be dirt ? Just before this I was camped on a road where the dust was terrible. Whenever I would go into town my truck would message me that my air filter needed to be cleaned ( self cleaning message ). 2) My truck ( 2012 F350 ) connection allows me to adjust the brakes on my trailer. From 1-10 I have always set them on #5. 3) What should I know before my appointment with the Tire company ? It has " Never Lube Bearings " Knowing that it could be anything Brake related what is the most likely on a 2012 model with approximately 45,000 miles ?

dust, can cause the squeeking as metal to metal, just pull the drums and look at your brake lining, the bearings can be looked at also
