Not sure how the Ford controller works but 6.5 sounds really high. On my Ram I have it set for "heavy electric" and 3.0 on the power scale. Stopping with the trailer really doesn't feel any different than without it.

Apples to oranges, weight, adjusted brakes, power to the mags, lots of variables. If I did not have a controller no way would
my trucks brakes last very long trying to stop 22klbs combined
