Though I have a much smaller camper, and a much lighter and smaller tow vehicle, the correct setting for the brake controller seems to vary with each trip, the roads, and the speeds I'm towing at. On the interstate, I generally want the camper brakes to be fairly aggressive - I want to know that they are there and working. I want stopping distance to be the same or slightly better than the tow vehicle by itself. The same is true when I'm in the mountains, but speeds are down aroung 40-50 MPH.
If I leave the setting untouched when I'm at slow speed in the campground (or city traffic), the camper will jerk the tow vehicle. I have to back off the brake controller setting for city traffic and slow speeds.
