SouthCo, the controller is a Draw Tite Activator II, which is a time system. It worked very well with the previous trailer. I have now adjusted the output (braking power) to level 3, so the trailer brakes can slow the tow and trailer assembly. I have adjusted the sync control (reaction time) to the lowest level, to soften the way the brakes reach full output and avoid a too fast braking action. It seems to work at the start of a trip and moving at slow sped, but after half an hour on the road, when we slow down and stop at a traffic light, we are in circus mode. brakes lock un-evenly, and we have noisy, jerky stops. How can I determine if it is an electric brake mis-adjustment, or if it is time to get another controller?
