    I have a triple axle trailer with electric over hydraulic brake on all 6. I started having trouble 2 years ago when I drove to Havasu hooked on and left. Somehow from Havasu to Vegas all the fluid drained out and I lost a hub etc. Offshore got it fixed up and off I went. So just recently I had all the bearing replaced (Vault) etc, pads all looked good, and the pump and all the lines were bled.

    So this weekend I tow down to Powell and the brakes are about 30% there, and I tried to hit just the trailer brake and it does not respond at all.

    Before I start throwing parts at it...first idea is the pump, does anyone have any ideas? You can hear the pump running etc.

    Surprised I didn't know they made hydraulic over electric, seems to defeat the purpose.

    Nice. Yeah my brother always reminds me how much closer he is to BF vs Wahweap. We just stayed in Wahweap Bay because the castle cut is still closed. Usually go to Rainbow on Sunday but it was too windy to make that hall in his 24 Moomba so we just went to Antelope and Navajo. Left Monday morning to dodge the rain. He got rain and snow towing back to SLC. I got 10 hour drive to SoCal. Still worth it, great weekend with family and getting chores done on the HB.
