I have the same problem

I have almost the exact same setup as you and the same issues. I wonder if there might be something with the f-150's integrated brake controller. I cannot get mine to lock up either and was told by the dealer that it should. I have thought about crawling under the trailer and trying to adjust the brakes there to see if it helps.

First, welcome to the forum.

My integrated brake controller did lock up brakes on Jayco trailers I was delivering years ago. If I braked hard, 1 of the 4 would lock up, not all 4. Then I'd set the controller lower so I wouldn't repeatedly lock that tire and damage it.

I haven't had a brake lock up on my trailer yet, although I feel they are braking heavily; especially when applied manually. I don't have a clue as to why the difference between then and now. It is unlikely it is my truck.

Actually, until now, I never heard that trailer brakes should lock up. I've always preferred that brakes NOT lock up.

No matter what type of brake system they never should lock up. It is not good for the tires nor for the braking effectiveness. So if some one thinks they should lock up.......better do your home work.


The only thing what should lock the wheels is the Emergency brake.

I think they are referring to the process to dial in a break controller. Where you adjust it until it locks and then back it down so it won't lock the trailer brakes.

We also have the 23MBH with the equalizer hitch, it does make quite a bit of noise when going slow and turning corners, I just figure it lets people know I have arrived!!
