What happens if a Knott brake cable is not properly adjusted?
If brake cables or other brand brake parts are not properly adjusted, you run the risk of putting a lot of pressure on the towing vehicle. This also logically causes the braking distance to increase a lot. Poorly adjusted brakes can also cause the brake components to heat up and therefore break down. This is also very dangerous when you go on holiday in mountainous areas, for example. Want to make sure your Trailer brake parts are functioning properly and are adjusted correctly? Then you can always request a BOVAG inspection.
