2011 Ram integrated Brake Controller issue

My TV is a 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie 6.7l. The issue that I am having is that the integrated brake controller is holding the brakes for about 1-2 seconds after the brake peddle is released.
Has anyone experienced this issue prior and if so, were you able to find a fix for the issue? If you have, please share any helpful information.

Thank you in advance for your help and advice,
Tom

Additionally, to insure it is not the trailer. I have pulled the drums, adjusted the brakes and greased the bearings.
I have also used another truck to test the function of the trailer to eliminate any possiblity that it may be the trailer.

Not had that issue on my Rams. Is it actually holding voltage after the pedal is released? If the voltage goes to zero, it's not the controller.

My 12 Ram 2500 CTD did the same exact thing. When new I had the TBC replaced under warranty. That didn't fix the release issue. I fixed it by installing a Tekonsha P3. That was the best thing I did to the truck for towing. Much much smoother and better grab on the brakes when stopping even at very low speeds. Something the Ram TBC doesn't do very well.

I've heard of lots of complaints on the factory controller from a few years ago. I love the factory controller on my '17 2500. Much better than the P3 I installed on my '02 1500.

I haven't checked to confirm if the voltage is present after the pedal is released. I really should check that. Up to this point I was actually just assuming that it was because I verified that it wasn't the trailer by hooking it to another truck.
I wonder if one of those 7-pin testers that plug into the 7-pin socket would work for that test?

It should. My 14 and 17 have screens that show the voltage in real time. Not sure if the older ones did.
