brand new trailer I picked up the previous day.

 

When I tried to stop in stop and go traffic on I75 that the trailer brakes did not appear to be helping stop.

 

I rear ended a minivan.

 

Got home and took the trailer to a local trailer dealer.

 

Here is the statement from the invoice for the work that was done to make them functional.

"Brakes inoperative.

 

Repair brakes.

 

Tech found that all 4 brakes had bleeders on bottom of calipers, not top. Tech reversed lines and bleeder screws and completely bled brake system.

 

Brakes work properly at this time."
