We have a 07 Sunset trail and after a new axle was replaced plus all new brake parts on one side that brake now comes on faster and harder than the other three,that wheel will skid on gravel. The question I have is are the brakes adjustable and how is it done?

I haven't adjusted on my trailer I have now,but the last one I diid ,its just like a car.Use a brake spoon or screw driver and rotate the tire until it gets tight and than lossen it up until it turns free.

What axle do you have on the trailer? I have a manual for the alco axle that goes into the brake adjustment and you can down load it from their site or if you send me a PM I can e-mail the PDF.

laurie & marlys, here is a link to a very thorough explanation in how to adjust your brakes.

Just copy and paste into your web browser if you cannot click on it.

Everything I have ever read on brakes tells you to replace them on each axle, never just one side. And they should be adjustable.
