Determining Which Brakes and Hub and Drum Assemblies Fit 1998 Prestige Boat Trailer

Question:

I’m looking at a wheel hub drum brake assembly. It is going on a 1998 Prestige boat trailer made for Mariah boats. As I can tell none of the brake parts are currently functioning. Not sure what all I need to get that back up and running. Do you guys have experience with these trailers?

Expert Reply:

I would be happy to help you get the brakes on your 1998 Prestige Boat Trailer made for your Mariah Boat back to functional, but we do not have a breakdown of the specific components your trailer uses.

First things first you will need to determine what hub and drum assembly your axle uses. You can determine this by removing one of your current hubs and looking for the bearing numbers stamped in the face of both the inner and outer bearings as shown in the included picture of the # L44649.

If your bearings are worn to the point that you cannot read the bearing numbers you will need to use digital calipers # PTW80157 to precisely measure your spindle in the locations shown in the included diagrams.

With that information I can find the correct replacement hub and drum assembly, and the correct hub and drum assembly will tell me which brakes your trailer uses.
