Default Trailer brake help

My brakes are locked up on left side. Any advice on how to free them up.

Looks like both. Has a housing with discs. There is a black button with what looks like a grease fitting on the other.

Its not gonna have both. Takes different masters cylinders to operate drums than discs. Open the top bleeder on the caliper thats locked up, that should free it up enough to get it moving. Your gonna have to disassemble and clean that caliper or easier just buy a new one. You can can get Deemax marine calipers with e-coat for about $85 each.

Thanks Fury I will give it a shot. I would like to disable all together. I never trailer my boat more than a couple of miles.

If when u loosen bleeder its still locked up its the Caliper. If it then free's up , Its the hose or Master cylinder. The hose & caliper are usual suspects.
