Lets put this to bed.
Eliminates Manual Brake Adjustments
The design of Nev-R-Adjust brakes utilizes an innovative forward self-adjusting feature. During braking, Nev-R-Adjust brakes automatically rotate an adjuster assembly to close the gap caused by lining wear. This eliminates the need for manual brake adjustments while maintaining optimum performance and delivering maximum braking power.

Atcbrownie, I didn't see where anyone confirmed your suspicion on the loose brake wire, but yes, that is what most likely wore your brake out and not necessarily an adjustment issue. It received more power at each braking and caused the eventual fail.

TURBS, how are these types of brakes initially adjusted during installation? I feel like mine are not adjusted properly and are giving me poor braking performance. I am using the integral electric brake system in my Chevy 3500HD and I can't get the brakes to lock up at any speed with my Windjammer when I set the level to its maximum.

OK, I just noticed the video above. I watched it, but I don't understand what the guy is trying to explain. How do I adjust with the wheel and hub in place?

If I just leave them alone are they going to eventually adjust themselves to the correct position, no matter how far off they are right now?

Here a while back we had a thread about the settings in you're Driver Information Center about trailer braking, that not your problem also? When I adjusted mine to "High" it went from weak braking to locking up at gain of 7.

Initially you adjust them the same as regular brakes. Tighten them up then back off until you feel a slight, very slight, drag. I wouldn't worry too much about no being able to lock them up. I have not had many trailers that would lock up. They tell you to adjust your gain until lock up but don't bother to tell you that most trailers are incapable of locking up.
