Haven't heard back from OP, whether talking truck or trailer.


His truck is new enough that it will have 4 wheel disc so the answer is trailer.

Not necessarily. My truck has 4 wheel disc brakes but the emergency brakes are drum and have the self adjusters on them.

OPs 1st post
Trying to adjust my self adjusting brakes can’t find the star wheel through the hole, any idea


Trailer brakes obviously cause truck parking brakes are NOT self-adjusting


Is it time for your medication or mine?

If they aren't adjusting by themselves, something is wrong with them it seems.
