One of my rear brake rotors on my 2007 Zeiman trailer has a couple cracks in it. How do you go about replacing these? Where is a good place to get the new rotor? Thanks for the help.Name:  photo 3.jpg

Pull the brake line then pull the big bolt on the right in the photo, pry the gap open a bit, and the whole assembly comes right off.

Pop the whole new assembly back on, torque the big bolt, bleed the brakes, done...

eezy peezy

ps, next time let the brakes cool down a bit before dunking the trailer in the water, that should help avoid cracking in the future. Did you check the other side yet?

Yeah, the other side is cracked too.

Went with these. A little expensive but should be an easy replacement and everything will be new.

Comparatively $210 for a complete new arm, spindle, bearings, rotor, caliper, and pads seems pretty reasonable. For me the issue is time. I am happy to pay an extra $200-300 so I don't need to spend a full day dealing with greasy bearings.

By the way, this is also a good opportunity to raise or lower your trailer ride height. I raised mine 1" to gain some needed propguard clearance and it even seems to trailer much better now.

Do any companies make drilled or slotted rotors for trailers? After the new wheels it'd be nice to have better looking brakes.
I don't have torsion axles also.

I prefer to stay with a flat braking surface that will not promote as much rust as one with holes or slots. Boat brakes and car brakes are completely different applications with totally different challenges.
