    I have a 1997 Jayco 1207KB PUP with surge breaks. Recently had an overheating issue on one of the hubs. Replaced the wheel bearings and adjusted the star wheel to allow for even breaking or so I thought. The camper now hops after about 50 miles when the breaks are applied. What do I need to do to remedy this situation?

    I can see both scenarios being an issue. I plan on checking the breaks this weekend.
