Oh, I am sure the magnet is powered in reverse; just from looking at the animated drawing and the way the lever engages the pads it appears it should not work.
In a car, the wheel cylinder applies pressure evenly on both shoes at the top so the shoes will "grab" in either rotational direction. It looks like the magnet applied brake lever only will apply force to both shoes when the rotation is forward.
Been wrong before though and will be again ...
Need a real trailer mechanic (not one who plays one on the internet like me) who works on these guys to jump in.
