magnetised brake drumMagnetised Drums

On rare occasions, it's possible for drums to become magnetised.

Although we applied rigorous testing to a variety of drums we failed to show drums were magnetised by constantly applying a magnetic force to the drum.

The drum in the photo was magnetised for 48 hours without significant deflection from the compass.

However, we do suspect electric brake drums become magnetised through constant wear of the magnet into the braking face of the drum.

The resultant friction between the magnet and the drum is thought to magnetised drums.

A customer who had tried every last resort to fix their braking problem to no avail, had been recommended by us, to replace their drums. Once the drum was replaced, the customer advised the braking problem disappeared and full braking has returned.

Caravan RV brake drums can have a variety of problems—not just worn bearing journals. The only thing you can do with worn bearing journals is to replace the drum. If you’re stuck in the bush and need a quick fix, locktite your cups into your drums.

The fix will last until you get into the next big town. Limit your speed to 60 km and hobble into town — also lookout for a worn magnet face, both on your magnet and on your inner drums. Worn surfaces will decrease your braking by about 70%.

Electric magnets work best on a smooth drum surface; here, they can offer 100% effective braking.
