Easy Way to Determine Which Side of Trailer Brake Assembly Should Install


There is a left and right side electric brake. So if Im facing in the direction of the hitch behind the camper to my left is the left wheel and right to the right wheel? Or can you describe this another way to me If Im not getting it right? Also when I install the brakes with a battery installed when I pull the emergency brake applicator will I be able to turn the wheel by hand or should this lock to where I couldnt budge it? The brakes I just put on from you are 7 inch 2000 lb axle.

The lever that holds the brake magnet on an electric brake assembly should point forward towards the front of the trailer.

Take a look at my crude drawing I attached to see what I mean.
