Lippert axles

Does everyone with brakes that DO NOT work properly have Lippert axles?

I'm pretty sure my new Eagle HT has Lippert axles, and so far the brakes are pretty weak. I have my brake controller turned all the way up and it will not lock the brakes on the trailer. I'm going to be checking into the settings this weekend to make sure everything is set correctly. I pulled the new FW last weekend on our maiden voyage with many stops along the way. The brakes should have had plenty of time to settle in and start working better.

No they don't. However all Jayco trailers I have ever seen do have Lippert ( or Dexter) before they were bought by Lippert.

Wondering if the Lippert axles and brakes just need to have the brakes adjusted to make them work properly?

I have NOT had brake issues with any other trailers brakes EXCEPT my Jayco.

Norty earlier I was saying I agreed with you 100% on brakes being MORE than broken in by the delivery from Indiana.

Our Eagle has weak brakes also. After first trip dealer said they need to be broke in. They have about 3500 miles on them. While in gear at an idle, manually applying the brakes with the controller. The trailer brakes will not stop the truck and trailer. Dealer said it should. Its there now for brakes and cracked bath room fan, upgrading to a Fantastic fan.
