    Trailer Brake Adjustment - Every 3,000 mile or three months

    Just a that you need to adjust your trailer brakes every three months or 3,000 miles. I'm not sure if the Solitude or Momentum fifth wheels have self adjusting brakes or not. Here's a video from Lippert on how to adjust your brakes:

    Since I'm replacing my brakes anyway, I'm putting in self adjusting brakes. For my 337RLS, the price for complete self adjusting brake assemblies was $291.72 (before taxes) from Camping World. This was actually less expensive than replacing the brakes with the original part number from Lippert. And the new brakes are manufactured by a subsidiary of Lippert. If you are considering replacing yours, drop me a PM, and I'll give you the part numbers.

    Here's some info on the forward self adjusting brakes:

    Jim, we took advantage of the Grand Design rally pricing (about the same as the camping world sale) and installation and got the breaks you linked to and then put on a few thousand miles. So far we are happy with the purchase.
