Maintenance personnel should be trained to make brake adjustments. If adjustments to the trailer brakes are required the
following steps are recommended for "S" cam brakes:
Block the wheels, release spring brakes and shut off the prime mover engine, leaving it in low gear. Check the
push rod travel by pulling on a slack adjuster by hand or with a pry bar. If slack (push rod travel) exceeds 3/4 inch,
brake adjustment is required.
