I drove over 1800km with my Trillium
this summer and never noticed any brake noise. I must say I installed a inertia type brake controller (Tekonsha Envoy, new old stock) which made the ride perfecly smooth under any road condition, including dirt roads. My previous brake controller on my previous RV was the basic all or nothing type, so electric brake coils used to overheat and burn randomly or produce unsufficient brake power at high speeds because I did adjust the brakes
softer to prevent them to lock at low speeds.
I just want to say brake noise on an egg is not a fatality with a good brake controller. I'm not a mechanic, but I would guess some corroded parts are jammed or require to be adjusted/replaced.
