Trailer brakes.

My electric trailer brakes are locking the wheels on my trailer. I know i need to turn the controller down but dont exactly know how to do that. It has a dial on the left that is unlabeled and a dial on the right that says gain. How do i turn the brakes down to stop that lockup?

Try adjusting the gain. There should be a manual control. Use that. The other knob adjust the timing of the brake application (attack). By using the manual switch you by pass the delay. Once you have the gain set, you can adjust the attack.

I couldn't say for sure but if your locking up I would say the opposite of where it is now turns it down . Find a safe place and try it at slow speed.

I use the same controller. I find that what works best for me is to park it level, adjust the angle to where the light is barely on when stopped, then start playing at about 2/3 gain and adjust until they are just short of locking up....pretty much standard for all brake controllers. Once that's dialed in, I usually adjust on the fly with the angle knob and not the gain (unless it gets rainy or something like that).
