10" Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Assembly

Anyone ever convert their manual adjustable brakes to the auto adjuster type?

In a month, when I pull the trailer out from the backyard to the driveway, it will be time to repack (and possibly replace) the wheel bearings and check the races and spindle, I thought I might pull of the stock brakes and install these.

So, just wondering if anyone has any experience with these?

I have not. But I too need to look at my brakes. I picked up my new trailer and it just not seem to pull my TV like my old trailer would when I hit the brakes. I could feel them stopping. This new trailer does not give the same feel.

I want to take them off and look at them. Something is not right.

Good luck with your project and let us know how it went.

Vin.

Thanks. But it appears nothing wrong with the brakes it was the overall brake job. I'll make sure my axle nuts are correctly tightened.
