HW276 Brake performance

Bought new beginning of the year with 200 tow miles on it. Started out the integrated controller at 4 and progressed to 8 testing on dry pavement at 20-25 MPH.

Seemed good there with a noticeable tug synched with the tow vehicle braking. Just out of curiosity, I took the controller bias to 10 which max and didn't notice a great deal of increased braking, much less getting to the threshold of brake lock-up. Tow vehicle is a 2014 F-150 Super Crew.

Is this normal or should I expect to be closer to lock up at max bias?

I think if you look through the setup options for your built in brake controller you will find that there are three levels of output to select from low, med and high. The default is low so you may want to try higher. I left mine at low and am about 7 on that scale. It is next to impossible to lock up the TT brakes with the controller the computer will not let you or tries to not let you. If you are getting a slight tug from the TT when stopping and it no longer feels like you are being pushed during stopping I would call it good.
