Brake controller adjustment

New to this. I have a 04 All American Sport, 36CK, 5th wheel. A P2 controller. The instrictions say to start at 6, 25 mph. pull lever to left, look for brake lockup, then adjust as necessary. I had little brake action at setting 6. I'm up to 8 now. The brake is much better, still no lock up, not really close. My question. Is it ok to adjust more brake into it? I think the controller goes up to 10. I guess it goes that high because you may need it? Brake linings are good and properly adjusted. Thanks for any input.

I have a built in brake controller but its the same basic setup procedure. It said to set the gain at 6 drive approx. 20-25 mph and apply the brake lever and see if the brakes lock up. Increase the gain one level and try again until you lock up the brakes then back off gain one level at a time until the brakes don't lock up. Hope that helps.
