Will say that I was highly disappointed to look under mine and see that only the front axle has brakes. Would think that a 44' 16,000 lb trailer would have brakes on both axles.

X2 on that! I'm going to have to check that on mine as soon as I get it back from the dealer! There's going to be a serious discussion on safety litigation if that's the case!

Yeah. Double-check that!

Even my dinky 5K# has brakes on all 4 wheels.

The drum brakes should be self-adjusting (mine are). When I check my hitch lock I put brakes on full and try pulling the trailer (engine @ idle) and it'll hold the truck back.
