Brake issue when towing...
I'm getting a burnt brake smell after an hour towing my 17ft aluminum bass boat (about 1,800lbs w trailer.)
Trailer does not have brakes (I know, I know, it'd be better/safer with...)
I read on other threads discussion about wrong size brake pads for double calipers, etc... Could that be the issue here?
My '16 AWD LWB is a Certified purchase from this past Fall, didn't see any brake job services on its one owner history. This is the first time towing with it over a few minutes. Never had any smell like this towing before with different rides (like what you smell from tractor trailer rigs with brake issues...)
Any thoughts appreciated.
