How often do you adjust your trailer brakes

Postby Cosmo » Thu Jul 12, 2018 3:44 pm

I have small Dexter brakes in a 1500 pound trailer. I am wondering how often electric brake users adjust their brakes.
I adjusted them when I took delivery of the trailer (3 1/2 years ago) and again today. It took about 3 or 4 clicks of the drum adjuster to get them adjusted, I probably have about 7K miles on the trailer.

Thanks

I would expect it to be an annual inspection item like greasing the wheel bearings............

I adjust every time I back up. Self adjusting brakes and all. That said, a visual every 10-15k miles and adjust as needed in the interim.
