Bleading trailer breaks?

5 posts in this topic

So, when returning to the parking lot last night, I noticed that I broke a break line on my trailer. A small metal tube about the size of a coffee straw is broke, its supposed to be attached to a rubber tube and then the brake its self.. I assume I can just replace said small metal tube.. but have no idea how to bleed the system with new break fluid.

Or, since I am a mechanical I D I O T , should I bring this to a professional.. and if so, how much will this cost approx?

FYI, 20 ft boat, dual wheels, but (Disk) breaks only on back wheels.

You could try to do it yourself, It is really not that hard but is time consuming you need to keep filling and pumping the break actuator to get the air out.

It takes about an hour to do it.

You will need a couple guys to help move the accuator and tighten and loosen the brek lines

If someone you know, or a mechinic you do bus. with has a air presure break bleeder you can borrow it. After replacing the damaged hose Its pretty simple, fill the resivor with break fluid and hook the bleeder up, open the bleed screw on the wheel cyl and close it when clearv fluid comes out.

dude, break lines are not easy to work on, or fix. Take it somewhere and have them do it, or get connect with a mech around your area that might know how to fix them. There very iffy

to to parts store, get brake line, flaring tool and connectors. once all that is done, gravity feed to bleed brakes. I just did it on my ranger trailer. It worked out well. Good Luck Dietz!

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
