I have the limited with diesel, it's in the settings under towing. Has two settings for the type of trailer.

i was looking up integrated trailer brake control issues on the cummins forum and it seems some people are having issues with the trailer brake output. Not sure if any of you guys are finding a problem but i know i had to turn mine up a lot higher with the new truck as opposed to the old truck. link below.

Well I think mine works fine (like the one in my Denali slightly better), but as you mentioned I think each truck is different. Which is slightly weird, who knows.

When I get back from Europe I will try it on setting 5.5 and see if it does better. I am thinking mine is way to powerfully and going from a conventional trailer to a fifth wheel, it was hard to tell the feel.

But on level 8, mine would be smoking, that's for sure.

Mine appears to be working okay too - so far. Turned it up to 5.5 on the way home last night to see if I noticed a difference, and I certainly did - locked the TT tires up pretty quickly. Needless to say, the gain is back to 4.0

Towing around 12k lbs with a 2012 ram 3500 srw. Usually keep the gain on 5. More than that I can feel the trailer pulling a lot when I hit the brakes.

2015 RAM 2500 with Hemi 6.4, but I'm betting the integrated brake controller is similar. I set mine up using "light electric" at the beginning per the weights in the manual (my trailer is around 8K loaded) and I had the gain way up over 8 and it still wasn't enough. So I switched to "heavy electric" and have the gain at 6.5 and it works much better. I probably could go down to 6.0, but I like it right where it is. I guess I'll try to measure the drum temps this weekend. I always measure the tire and hub temps when we stop but never gave the brake drums much thought.

2015 Ram 2500 diesel
Trailer weight ~8000 loaded
Trailer brake set to heavy
Gain set at 5
Came down the grade from Lake Crowley to Bishop southbound on highway 395 in Cali using the automatic engine brake with cruise control set at 62 and never once touched the brake pedal. For reference this is about a 6-7% grade, very straight and about 5-6 miles long. Electric brakes work great when not using the engine brake.

Well, I have the new Outdoorsman model and I will have to look in settings for all this. Have not seen anything at all where I can name the combo I am pulling. Will look further. Did just upgrade my U-Connect radio before I even got the re-call notice in the mail.

I haven't seen anything on this recall yet. Which UConnect system is it?

It is just about all Chrysler products with the U-Connect radio system. Should be able to go online with your vin number and check for re-calls. I know the 2015 Diesels are affected so the Hemi's are probably also. Was about a 30 minute fix by downloading an upgrade. You can go to settings and see which version of software you have. For 2015 models, if your version of radio software is 15.17.5 or higher, you do not need to upgrade. If your version is lower than that, you need to upgrade. My local dealer did not have a fix right after this came out but I went online to Ram and downloaded the fix.
