The owners manual I have for our 2010 Ram 1500 says to start the integrated trailer brake control at a gain of 6.0. Then make adjustments accordingly after that.

I had a Dodge Brake Controller installed on my truck, did not want the one the dealer was going to install, The answer to your question is yes, proportional !!

Mine works great on my 2014 Surveyor

Do not like after market stuff if I can avoid it .........

PS: My gain is set @ 4.0 from a 4.5 starting point.

I've got the Dodge controller in my 2010 and love it. I run mine at 4.5 but my trailer is only about 4800 lbs.
