You should post in the Rockwood TT/5th section.
The 2015's and 2016's supposedly have Dexter Never adjusts as per both of the brochures.
Ebcobra, I was never able to get a 2011 Aerolite 185, same plan as a Roo 19, to lock up. Tandem non self adjusting dexters 10 X 2 1/4. And that was with either a P2 prodigy or factory GM brake control. The brakes were not screwed up.
I have never been able to lock up the brakes on our current Keystone Passport 235 hybrid, not surprising as it has two 3000 lbs axles with 10 X 1/1/2 brakes thanks to Keystone's penny pinching. But even then the brakes are fully operational.
If you can get them to lock they will need to be hot, you'll never get them to do it cold.
Also check the gauge of wire used from connector to wheels and especially from wheel through axle to opposite wheel. There is a certain gauge wire they recommend. I know someone who had a trailer where they ran a much lighter gauge wire through to the opposing wheel than recommended by Dexter. It caused the shoes to wear on one side faster than the other. I imagine that could be a huge issue from connector to all 4 wheels.
Not designed to be primary brakes only supplemental and you can only get so much friction out of magnets when your talking this much mass.
