Brake Noise 2016 Scamp 13 Deluxe

We have travelled over a 1000 miles since we picked our Scamp 13 up last week. We are still traveling. We have noticed a grinding sound when initially applying the breaks. I can then let off an reapply the electric breaks and it is not as loud. We just have no way to know what is normal. I originally had break controller set to 5.5 and backed down to 4.00 with the noise. I would appreciate any advice from experienced folks out there!

Thanks
Scott Lewis

Did you break your brakes?

I don't know enough to help you other than to tell you that a grinding noise is not normal.. I think I would stop somewhere and have them looked at before damage might be done.
And its new? Call Scamp.. there should be someone there on Sat morning but I don't know if you will get them to answer before Monday AM.

Some noise is normal but grinding suspicious. Do both wheels do this or just one ?

I experience some brake grabbing and noise (different from car brakes) with my 13', but no grinding.

It may be you are hearing the magnets grabbing the drums as they are designed to do, when they activate the brake shoes.

Rust?

Is it possible your drums have some rust on them while they were not in use? If so, the grinding noises will go away after a few applications of the brakes.
