Yes, I tow an average of 6000 miles a year. Rotate (3 wheel) every 6 months.

Why are trailer brakes so much more expensive than brakes on regular trucks or cars was quoted anywhere from $500-$1000 just for a single axel boat trailer. This is insane!

I don't know why the quotes would be so high. You can often buy complete new assemblies for far less. The swap out gets pretty simple when you install complete (pre-assembled) brake kits. Many with a bit of mechanical ability can swing it via that route - though it's important to know how to bleed the brakes properly after making the swap.

Run them till they blow and then buy a new one.

If your talking about dual axle running steel belts, I rotate front to back annually.
