Brake adjustment is a cinch. Go to the auto parts store and ask them for a brake spoon. With this tool and a good hydraulic jack you are ready to adjust the brakes. jack up one wheel at a time and crawl under the trailer. At the bottom of the brakes backing plate you will see a rectangular rubber plug. Pry it out. Look inside the hole and you will see a small star wheel. Now with the brake spoon reach in and turn the star wheel. Start with the tool up and push down. That should tighten the adjuster. Keep doing that until it gets tight and you cannot spin the tire. Now, the tricky part. Going in the opposite direction start backing off the star wheel. Start with 8 clicks. If the tire is still really hard to spin go two more clicks. You should feel some drag of the brakes as you spin the wheel. Lower the jack and go to the other side and repeat the process.
As for dewinterizing, pour in about a cup of bleach into the tank, fill with water, turn on the water pump and run water through every faucet until you get a really strong bleach smell. Turn everything off and go watch TV for a couple of hours. Drain the water tank, refill it with fresh water and again flush water through all the lines. Drain the tank and repeat step two. Drain the tank one last time until you are ready to go camping.
