Mine are Lippert 6000lbs axles. I have already tried adjusting them and it did nothing. Can I check the total amp draw at the back of the controller via the blue wire.

I check mine between the truck and trailer. Or behind the goose. Most of the time, there is electrical box there were you can tie in your amp meter.

I just went out and checked. I had 11.3 to 11.5 amps and 13 volts. I have not pulled all the wheels to look ad the pads and seals yet. I have checked all the wiring and grounds.

Well I figured mine out. I pulled one of the hubs and it the brake shoes, magnet and hub is covered in grease. Pulled another one, same thing. Going to dealer to be repaired.

Yes, does EZ-hub are a one shot deal. In the dexter manual, they state that you should only use them we brand new seal and recommended grease. I suspect these seal need to glue to the hub and of good quality. I would not recommend greasing them on a routine basis as you do not know if grease is going into the hub.

A mechanic once told me we listen to the cracking sound. If he it cracking, it means the grease is going pass the seal. Personally, I don't like the EZ-hubs.

I suspect you will need new hubs and brake pads.

My weak brakes were a result of poor connections although I was positive that they were O.K I was wrong.

I agree with Ember. Get a DC clamp on meter and check between connections and where the wires enter the back of the brake mount.

My brakes had grease on them from the rear seal. I got that fixed but they are still weak. I run my brake controller at full gain. I don't know what else to do.

I had a problem with my old trailer and found there was a broken ground wire at one of the brakes. So I had only 2 of the 4 working what a difference once I figured it out. Wires get corroded and break.
