Default Trailer Brakes

So when I got my boat I never thought twice to check out the brakes on the trailer. So right when I got it I knew it didnt really stop correctly. Being a total newb I just let it go for a while.
Soon enough I brought it to a dealer to have it checked out. They said the brakes were fine and I went with that. Still when I went to stop it made a clanking sound. Well about 2 weeks ago I pulled the rusty drum off and saw that the pads were pretty much gone. The drums were in sad shape to. I decided to purchase a complete disc brake kit. I found a really good OEm parts company out of GA. I paid about $370 for the complete set including the shipping. :shock:



came with all this stuff...
