White Bear Lake Auto Nation Ford is one discounting Ford dealer.
Front 4x4 rotors about $120 each.

On my Cardinal, which has a 16K GVWR, and came from the factory with drum brakes, I too had to have my controller turned up to 10, and on the most aggressive setting. Stopping performance really sucked. Its my opinion, that on a tandem axle trailer that heavy that the drum brakes are just not up to the task. Spring of 2017, I had performancetrailerbrakes guys come and put disc brakes on. HUGE difference. Controller is anywhere from 6-8 depending on conditions, and on 10, it will lock the wheels. I will never own a RV this heavy without disc brakes again, and next time will be ordered as factory option.

Thanks for your reply. Mine has never stopped good and I've had it since new. I think I'm going with the disk brake option, as well.
