Mine came new with grease contaminated brakes. After a little hassle, Jayco and Dexter replaced them under warranty.

OMG! I just posted the same experience on that BIG RV forum. Same thing. Grease in two. Magnets and armature surfaces on two front brakes took a major hit with scouring from overload. I cleaned two of four, and repacked the bearings. The other two are happening tomorrow. The self adjusters do allow manual adjustment. The issue is you need to hold the spring loaded retainer tab up through one hole in the backer plate, and adjust the wheel through the other. If you look in the rearward hole, youll see the spring loaded tab. Push it up, and the manual wheel is behind it. The springs on the tab on two of mine were broken and the cables in the bottom of the assembly. I cant find replacements.

Here is where I ordered mine. Get the pre assembled ones they are almost as cheap as individual parts (ie pads)

The last time I was out I noticed a lot of grease on my left 2 wheels. Took it back to the dealer and they said the bearings were over packed at the factory, They just cleaned it up and said it was fine. I didn't notice any change in my braking so maybe mine wasn't on the shoes yet.

Here are some pictures of the brakes, both from curbside, Adjusting cable was totally missing from one of them and only the little piece of spring was left. The other was full of grease and the adjuster cable was present but not hooked up to anything. I haven't even looked at the street side yet.

Did the street side today, one was in good shape the other was bathed in grease. So for the last 2500 miles or so I have had one brake out of four. I thought it was my brake controller at first (had one other go bad) and then I thought I needed to adjust. Next time I won't hesitate to pull the drums to check. It isn't really hard at all. Since we are full timing I thought it would be hard to do while set up on a campsite, but it's really not.
