I just learned in the April Q&A, that Escape is now including Auto adjusted brakes rather than manual adjusted brakes. We received our 5.0. in early February. So we are not clear as to whether our trailer has auto adjusted brakes or not. Can you please let us know whether we have Auto or manual.
Also, when I looked up brakes in the Escape Owner's manual it said -
pg 42 - "Brakes, Electric
Included in the unit packet is an extensive manual by the manufacturer of the brakes, axles, hubs and drums. Please refer to this manual for information on any of these systems."
I looked through all the manuals that were included in our trailer, and there is no manual. So in addition to this question, I would appreciate a copy of this manual (either hardcopy or electronic).
Thx so much,
Sandy and John Byrne
@sandra byrne I checked in with our after sales team about the brakes. It appears your trailer was built early on in the process of transitioning to these brakes. The only way to know for sure is to check the tags on the axles or at least one axle. If one is self adjusting they both are. The photos included show one where the label specifies "NEV-R-ADJUST". If you don't see that, they are not likely self adjusting.
