I saw several ASes on a delivery flatbed this week on I88. They were all single axle units on that load.

I agree that the brakes were probably 'used' during the initial delivery tow. How does PharmGeek KNOW they were set in 'properly'? Running interstate for 4000 miles will not set them in...it takes the heat and cool cycles...


Yes, the brakes will 'work'.... but, for longevity... I personally would 'set them'.

There is a 'known' problem on BMW K1200LT motorcycles. They have high performance braking system... and ABS. My "LT" was the only one that did not have a 'cowbell' sound (equivalent of the 'squeal' of car brakes)... because I 'bed' them in... the dealer even remarked... "Your LT is the only one without the problem."

My automotive brakes also are bedded in the above manner. The result, my brake pads/shoes often last 60,000 - 100,000 miles without needing replacement, depending upon tow load and use..

In my end of the business "setting in" is referred to as burnishing, and we only recommend it on Police PPVs which may need performance stopping from high speeds right out of the box. I, personally, don't think it is necessary on a trailer. They'll seat in fine. Just run the controller higher until, after some point, they start gripping ...or biting, a bit. Then back off the controller. And yes, after sitting for a week(s), turn up the controller until the "lot rash" rubs off the rotor and pads.

2007 - I think they changed the name year before I started? Not sure.

A small world indeed.

Pharmd? Other major? If you were in pharmacy school and graduated - we graduated together!
