Rivet brake smell

I wonder if what I was smelling was just because they had adjusted them and maybe they were dragging a bit or something? Should I be concerned or is that normal?
If you smelled the brake linings (unless you did a panic stop or fast deceleration from 60mph just before pulling in), you should have the shop check to see if they are to tight. Some drag is good, to much and they will heat up and cause the burning smell you may be experiencing.
Better safe than sorry in bluing the drums/discs.

I called them and they said to bring it back in to check it out. They said they shouldn't be dragging at all. So one more trip to the shop...

I've not heard of this specific feature on Dexter axles before.

Hi Jim,
The Nev r adjust brakes are recent product. I am pretty sure that it is not, even now , standard on all Dexter axles.
I do know that they are standard on 2010 A/S classics, but I don't know about the rest of the lines. My trailer also came standard with Dexter's Nev R lube hubs.

Here are a couple links.
