I've got a 2014 f250 towing 12k. Run at 7 on my gain. There is a way to go thru and change the ibc settings from low to high or low med high. Done thru in dash menu setups. Forgot exactly how.

IBC set @ 7 with 21,000 LBS combined tandem axle 5er. The only time I had to turn it up to 9 was because of a failed grease seal on one of the wheels. If the brakes are adjusted and not contaminated with grease then 7 is plenty.

Ford TV owners - whats your brake gain? (stock controller)

F150, probably 8500-9000 6.5 or 7.0 usually. I do a stop test when leaving my property so It will be the same test every time I leave and weight variances change my gain.

I had a 2010 Ford SCREW towing 5.5k. Used 7.5 gain with that. My new 2015 F150 SCrew I set it to 9 and still did not have the stopping power I had with the 2010. Might be something wrong with the IBC, it decided to lock up the trailer brakes constantly. Had to pull fuse in truck to drive the remainder 750 miles home
