My last truck had 176k when traded with the OEM pads on all 4 wheels & they still looked good & it had approximately 60+k towing without an exhaust brake.

I like other run my brake gain setting at 6.5 and always pull my Redwood with the Tow / Haul mode on.
With the Tow Haul mode engaged, it raises the shift points and increases firmness of the shift so the transmission does not have as much slip during the shifts under load which creates less wear.

Good Morning, haven't been out there as long as you, so learn sometimes thru the school of hard knocks, but you know what they say, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

Yea, I figured that out once we started the replacements.
Will check trailer pads next and lube the IS system, will not replace if I don't need.

What is the "IS" system. I hate acronyms, but I don't mind asking. Better to seem stupid than just bump along not knowing.

Hello. IS stands for Independent Suspension. It is the rugged suspension that a lot of full timers have put under their heavy redwoods to make it reliable on the road. MorRyde is the manufacturer. Quite a few folks had it installed in Elkhart just before or after this last national Redwood Rally.

IS = Independent Suspension. An After Market System sold and installed my MORryde in Elkhart, IN.
Totally removes the current axles and springs from your Trailer and replaces with a welded on system supporting each wheel individually via a Sheer Spring (Solid Rubber Block bonded to a Steel Plate on each side). Also adds a shock to each wheel location.
One of the better suspension systems you can install.
