Although the output of the brake controller is not where is was before the wheel bearing repack (4.0 vice previous setting of 2.5) I now have smooth and positive trailer braking.. I am sure this will change after a few miles are put on the newly adjusted brakes. Thanks to all who chimed in on my problem.. AND to anyone thinking about adjusting their brakes.. Go for it! It is very easy and doesn't take hardly any time at all once you do the first wheel and understand what must be done.. and to think I was going to take it to a shop and pay $$$ for it to be done.. UGH!
1-What seals are you referring to? To get the back bearing out, don't you have to take the seal off to get to it? I usually (basically) destroy the seals getting them out so new seals go back on anyway.
2-I've never adjusted my brakes but would like to know how? And don't start asking what kind of brakes or axles do I have because I couldn't tell you.
Is there a YouTube video out there to be seen?
