Integrated Brake Control Setup

I have a 2016 Windjammer 3025W (32'). I recently bought a tow vehicle that has an integrated brake control system;however, to set the controller up I have to select from four choices of type of brake. I looked on other posts but just can't find this information, I even went on the Nev-R-Just brakes (Drexler's) web site and don't see it. Can anyone tell me which of these choices I should make?

1. Light Electric
2. Heavy Electric
3. Light Electric over Hydraulic
4. Heavy Electric over Hydraulic

If you can point in the right direction I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

Hi Russ I bought the flagstaff 30wikss V Lite which is the 3025w twin sister. Same floor plan different interior colors and fabrics. You will want to set the brake controller to 2. The brakes will need to break in before they will reach good braking power. If you go to the top of this page there is a link called library in the lite green bar at the top of this page. The library has lots of information on how to take care of your trailer and how things work. There is good information on the brakes and how to brake them in.

Hope this helps Tim

The Ram owners manual has a sorta description in section five. They say Light Electric for 10k or less, Heavy Electric for over 10k. Although the difference is very slight I've noticed Heavy Electric seems to apply the brakes just a bit quicker.

Where do you all put your trailer brake gain? Mine is on +4. Frankly I cannot tell a lot of difference in +4 and +8. Braking seems pretty normal for hauling 9000 pounds to me so I don't really worry about it and leave it at +4.

Normally you would set the gain to where you can squeeze the brake actuator all the way on (+12 meaning applying 12 volts to the brakes) and the trailer brakes are just short of locking up at 25 mph. My present setting (RAM EcoDiesel with 6000 lb trailer) is +8.5.
