By that I mean they don't brake much or at all in
reverse even if you hold the manual over-ride on
the electric brake control.
Tapping them in reverse would have no effect.
You have to manually adjust them.
That's easy and takes only a couple minutes per wheel
not counting the time it takes you to jack it up.
Read the manual or look it up at the ALKO website.
Please be careful making statements like you did
above. These are TRAILER brakes and do not work
like automotive brakes. Don't assume you know
how they work unless you have actual real world
experience with ELECTRIC TRAILER brakes.
I know what I'm talking about because I had mine
apart earlier this year.
