Brake Controller Questions
It's me again. I have a 2016 GMC 3500HD Denali with a built in brake controller and a B&W 20K hitch, pulling a 2016 FR Salem BAR 337. I estimate the total weight of the trailer at no more than 11,000 lbs.
I recently posted a question about setting up the brake controller and got some excellent advice on the forum, but I have another question regarding locking-up the trailer brakes, which never happened.
I set the trailer gain to 5.00 and while driving approximately 25 MPH, I squeezed the manual paddles on the Brake Controller closed. There was a noticeable drag from the trailer, but no wheel lock-up. I increased it to 6.00 and did the same thing. The drag from the trailer increased but still no wheel lock-up. I tried this all the way to 10.0 and the drag increased considerably but still no lock up. So, I just backed it down to 6.0 and left it there. I will admit that stopping is a lot easier now, since before the gain was 0.0, but I am wondering if I am doing something wrong, or do I need to get my trailer brakes adjusted?
