Since last Spring I have had to replace 3 Kodiak Brake Calipers due to seized pistons. I arrived at the Gold River ramp on Saturday afternoon and one side was showing 220 degrees while normal is about 110. The pads were newish but ended up down to 1/2 to 1/3 third braking material and fried. I replaced that side last spring as the previous caliper was sticking, it was 5 years old. This spring I had to replace the other side. I learned my lesson and a usually keep a spare and had my wife run out all I needed to do a roadside repair in Gold River, fortunately I live in Campbell River. I doubt I could find a spare anywhere on the Island on short notice. As I launched on Saturday evening after allowing the hub to cool, a returning boat was waiting on the dock for a trailer. I could hear the guy banging on the trailer trying to release his brakes. His Buddy commented to another that he had just spent upwards of $1000 on new brakes but I did not hear what kind. Just curious if anyone else has experienced the same issues. 14-15 months on a trailer that is not used all that often is a little short. Everything works fine with new calipers and I religiously check hub temps. Both sides are failing, so I am thinking it is poor quality calipers although the pistons are supposed to be stainless. The calipers are Dacromet coated.
