Thanks for the reply Jon. I have the brakes wired with a ground all the way to the truck and I have checked that they were clean and solid. I know that grounding through the frame is an invitation to problems. I suspected the adjustment and I have had two different local trailer guys check them in the last few months. Both said they were good. These brakes have never been what I thought they should be since I had new brakes (all Dexter parts) put on a couple of years ago so now I wonder if they installed the wrong magnets. At first I thought that maybe they just needed a few miles on them to get everything seated but it never got better. If they used the lighter weight magnets I could see it having this type of symptom. What do you think?

What color are the wires? White is light duty, black for heavy duty. You might try it in reverse, they may have put them on the wrong side. The wires should come out behind the axle rather than in front.
