Brakes on one side only?

I recently purchased a 2017 Grey Wolf 26DBH. My braking didn't seem like it should be so i took a look under the trailer and saw that only the left two wheel's brakes are wired but the right side was not. I clearly can see the connections and that it has brakes on the wheels but there's no wiring to them. Is this standard? Doesn't seem right to me.

So it looks like I may be mistaken. I took a look at another one just like mine and noticed that the cables from that side go into the axle and I'm assuming across to the other side. Mine is the same way. Phew!

Yeah, they route the wiring through the axle tubes from one side to the other.

You may want to take a look at the connectors to make sure they're installed properly.

I just assumed that you meant they weren't wired at all. My last two were run where it was hard to see that it went to the other side and I thought only one side was connected at first. I didn't show any signs of anything wrong though. If yours feel funny, I'd do as suggested and double check the connectors / wiring.
