Trailer brake settings...

Good Day all!
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far, the weather currently in southern Alberta is HOT!
We have a 34 rlsa and was just wondering what others with this type of unit set their brake controllers at in their trucks?
Thanks ahead for your replies!

I have a 2014 CC 34 RLSA and a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500HD SRW. I have my controller at 6. On my previous 2011 Silverado 2500HD it was at 5.

I would think every brand controller would most likely be a different setting. I know the "add-on" controller I put on my 2011 Ram sure took a different setting than the factory integrated controller on my 2015 Ram.

Each and every setup will be different. And if you dont adjust your trailer brakes no setting will give you decent braking.
