Exploded Brake Diagram needed

Does anyone have the diagram for the components for the electric brakes?
Or a link to a diagram and/or instructions.
I/m supposed to leave for our trip tomorrow and my magnet is dragging. Is there a return spring for the magnet?
I have 7K axles.

The magnets are always in contact with the armature surface of the brake drum, and there is a spring on that assembly that keeps it there. When you apply the brakes, that is when the magnet grabs the drum to apply the brake shoes to the drum surface to stop your trailer.

Here's a photo of a 7K RH brake assy. Check the big return springs for breakage and or end eyes popped out of mounts. Check the pins and springs that hold the shoes to the backing plate and that the shoes are resting on the backing plate correctly. The round disk can be rotated 1/4 turn to remove if needed. Check the auto adjuster to see if the forks have popped out of the brake shoe attachment points or if the capture spring is broken. Like said ... the brake magnet has a small spring underneath it to hold it out against the brake drum armature surface. The magnet is held on the actuator arm by a very small spring clip as seen to be the dark square in the very middle of the magnet mounting slot. This clip simply pops on or off to remove the magnet. There should be no voltage to any magnet unless the truck brakes are applied. Make sure your breakaway switch is working correctly as well.

If your trailer sits a lot like 11 months then you use it for your vacation the armature face will rust and make noise until a couple of brake applications clean it off.
