I have a 08 Duramax pulling a 6500 lb TT. I have noticed similar breaking qualities with my set up. I think the issue is the Truck weighs more than the trailer. When I pulled the same trailer with my Jeep Commander you could feel the trailer slow the Jeep down. I have never been able to lock up the trailer brakes with either TV.

I sort of wondered if it wasn't that the truck was so much more powerful than our previous TV. Never gave the weight difference a thought.

I can't lock the 5ver trailer brakes either, nor could I lock up the 831RLSS TT brakes. I think the trailers are too heavy to smoke the tires in a stop. I don't want them sliding and flat spot the tires, but I want feel the trailer trying to slow down the truck anytime I touch the brakes. Just my towing style.

Is the controller mounted in the dash ? If it is and it's like the one that came in my ford it's a progressive controller......you shouldn't feel the trailer pushing or pulling on the truck when you stop. It should feel like your towing something with surge brakes.
