    2006 22V dorsey trailer brakes

    Bought my 22v 3 years ago and the brakes have never worked good if any at all. Its always had the loud clunk when taking off or when stopping. My boat ramp is 100 yards from my boat storage so it hasnt been a priority to mess with. However, now I want to visit other lakes so the time has come to do maintenance.

    Since Dorsey is no more, do others know where to find replacement parts and what type of fluid? I’ll start by trying to fill the reservoir and bleeding, but I anticipate it may require new parts.

    Also, does anyone have good videos for bleeding boat trailer brakes?

    I did this last fall with my Dorsey trailer after similar symptoms. I have surge style drum brakes on rear axle. I purchased new wheel cylinders and tongue actuator. I know the wheel cylinders came from Shadow Trailers. I think the actuator as well but that was ordered separately.

    I would flush all the fluids rather than just bleed them if an older trailer, that may be part of your problem. I did that too my trailer this Spring, used utube and watched some videos first....there are a bunch of them. Flushing is basically the same process as bleeding, make sure your fluid reservoir at the tounge does not run low or you suck air into the system. Basically you start at the furthest brake from the master cylinder and work up then when fluid has ben flushed thru them all, go back and bleed again to be sure no air.
