Fleetwood Niagra Brake Shoes
« on: September 17, 2017, 01:47:26 AM »
Hey folks

Just got done with a brake inspection and a repacking the bearings on our Fleetwood pup. It's actually a Hemlock model but other than ours I have never seen any info on the web about that model, so for all intents and purposes it's close enough to a Niagra to be one. So let's call it a Niagra as it seems everyone is more familiar with that...

Anyhoo, after inspecting and adjusting the drum brake shoes, I noticed they are really close to worn out, so I'd like to replace them ASAP. I just can't find any info online about which parts I need to buy. I searched this website too and apparently only two mentions of brakes in the entire post database.

So, anyone out there in canvas camper land know what brake shoes I need to order.

Cheers
Adam

Give the guys at ETRAILER.COM a call. Have your VIN number and they should be able to give you all the information you need.

Yes, I was just browsing their pages. Lots of options. I will call them Monday morning.

What's interesting is that judging by the images of the new brakes on their pages, mine are perhaps less worn than I imagined. Been a long time since I dealt with drum brakes and it seems there is less material on the shoe than there is on a disk pad.

I imagine etrailer will know what the minimum tolerances should be, but I also imagine they will try to sell me a part regardless. Anyone have any idea what the tolerance for material should be?

Thanks
Adam

1/16 over the rivets or 1/8 if bonded.
