Electric Brakes

Hi all, I just picked up my Roo from storage unit and getting ready to head on out on the first trip. The Roo is a 2013 and has electric breaks. I did not notice any smell the first time towing it home and then to the storage unit, but tonight when I got to our Condo Unit there was a strong odder of something burning like the breaks.

Is this normal until it gets worn in? only have about 20 miles on it..

Appreciate the feed back!

what do you have for a brake controller?
is that what you're calling a brake box?

We believe the brake problem was the control box setting no smells and did some adjustment to the control box which is a quest model.

First night in the Roo a little chilly up here in Maine but is great to be enjoying the purchase!!!
