During this process I did adjust the brakes. It used to pull to the left some, and that brake was the tightest. I think there were a lot of issues taken care of today. While I was taking the trailer back to the farm (2.5 miles and 2 stoplights) it seemed to stop straighter. I could not really tell if it pulled better. We will get it out on the road next weekend for a 230 mile round trip weekend and I think we will tell then. Thanks .

Turn right and see where the road takes you... that is too short a tow to see how it is doing.
