We just pick ours 317RLOK up the other day , and I have to take it back already . Something is terribly wrong with the brakes . If you just want to slow down they lock up . And skid the tires .Ugh .

Did you try adjusting the gain on the brake controller down? I know if my gain is set high then the trailer brakes engage too hard and too fast.

Consider yourself lucky John.. I drive with my controller maxed out and barely have brakes.

Klassic, On my F350, I can go into the settings where there are 3 levels of strength for the brake controller. I believe the options are low, medium and high. This in addition to setting the gain with the controller on the dash. I don't know if you are aware of this feature. With my Eagle 317rlok and the setting on medium, I feel the brakes are right where they should be.
