Curt Brake Controller

I have Curt Brake controller for my pulling my traveler trailer, and not really happy with it. Does anyone have any problems or suggestions on using one?
When I hook up and adjust it to 8.0 the brakes will lock up, and I keep adjusting down to about 3.5 and brakes hardly stop. Any and all help is most appreciated.

Sorry, can't help with a Curt.

I'm a fan of the Prodigy and wouldn't use any other brand of controller. It's the most recommended brake controller made.

I'm guessing you have the TRIFLEX model? If so, allow the controller to go through the full calibration mode display. Then start out with base settings:

OUTPUT: 2.0
SENSITIVITY: L.I.

Allow the unit to flash to register your settings. Then test drive at 25 mph on flat pavement. Adjust your output first, then adjust sensitivity. Do not make any adjustments with your brake applied. Always allow the controller to flash your setting change. It may take a few times to get it where you want it. You want a firm application just short of lock-up. Keep in mind that different road conditions may require changes to your output. You can adjust on-the-fly just don't have your foot on the brake. Just remember, the controller must flash your change for it to take affect.
