and now that you mention it: it might even be b (boost?) instead of a 6

How long has it been (in miles) since you have done a brake adj on the trailer. Worn brake pads will cause the need for an adj of the controller. Once I get to a higher number (RAM integrated controller) say 8.5-9.5 or so, I do a brake adj and then I'm back to 5-6 on the controller. Just a thought.

It would be insanity to run an aftermarket brake controller on a vehicle with a working IBC.

My trailer does exactly what the truck does when I push the brake pedal. It's very nice not having to fiddle with the controller as I tow. I just drive.

B3 is the boost level. You still need to set up the voltage that the trailer sees. This is setup buy turning the wheel on the left side of the controller. When you move the leaver on the bottom of the unit all the. Watch to the left the max voltage will show up on the display. This voltage has to be setup for the controller to work right.
