Bought the 24'cape in 4/04 pulled all the brakes off in 9/08 after locking up on three different trips, but we only trailer the boat 3-4 miles at a time. My other trailers 27' slant and 25' tandem all have very good working brakes.

Yup, I can definitely say they work. I just spent nearly $1000 on everything new, including hubs, and labor to make it so.

had them removed last year when they were not worth the cost of replacement (drums shot-rusted etc) and with only a 23 footer to pull, my F250 does a good job by itself. Bigger land yacht than Justncase, though, and I will definitely have good trailer brakes for it. Ever see the guy on youtube who towed his 26' Mako through the Sunpass booth on I-75? Big F350 couldnt slow down enough and he went up over the concrete barricade, destroyed his truck, too cheap to fix his trailer brakes. Some have to learn the hard way
