That's why I got the P3, I figured it would grow with me.

I just towed my new (to me) 264BHW home the other day and set my P2 to 11 and the boost on 3. Just before I got it home the car in front of me locked 'em up. I stood on my brakes and hung on, stopping 4-5 feet from the rear of his bumper. I was glad to have all that extra stopping power!

Holy Cow, that's alot of gain. What does that TT weigh. Boost 3 is nearly 25% as soon as you touch the brake pedal, isn't it? Glad you got it stopped though.

I had a 30' goose behind a dodge 2500 going from Houston to WV. I was nearly empty going, the load was in WV. About 500 miles out of Houston I discovered the trailer brakes were out. But I was only carrying about 2500# and I needed to get to the job sight, so I decided I'd have the brakes looked at in WV. Well, I was coming out of the mountains and it started misting. I went into a 25mph curve at about 15mph and felt the truck push. Every attempt to brake just locked up. I was out of road, so I started to turn in and brake. The trailer started to push the back of the truck around, and I just got on the gas (gently) and "power slid" through the corner hoping for the best. NOT FUN. Needless to say, I gained a whole new respect for good trailer brakes.

Wow, nicely done. Admittedly, I need to do more tweaking on the controller. But at that moment, I was glad it was set where it was. My trailer was dry at around 4700lbs.

Not a technique I would advocate..haha. I simply ran out of black top = ran out of options.

I thought it was in that neighbor hood. My 26BH is 4700 dry also. I'm pulling with an Explorer and 12 with no boost was yanking me. I mentioned earlier that I worked all the way down to 2.2 before I really notice the TV working to stop. I pulled it home from the dealer at 8, so I'll find a happy spot in the middle I suppose.

I use Boost 1 and have no issues at all,P3 is set at 7.2 and truck and trailer stop together and no trailer pull.My trailers dry weight is 8400 and without weighing it and factoring in other things im closer to 9500 lbs loaded(being generous).Maybe the boost feature is to much with lighter trailers but for me its great so far.Dealer set me up at 5.5 and trailer pushed me a bit so I gradually went up a few on my ride home and then when loaded on first trip and haven't had to change it since.

Didn't you get a manual? Here is the link to how the manufacture says to set it up.

We were only about 5200# loaded, so the boost is pretty aggressive. I'm going to bring it back up. The only reason I backed it down was I smelled hot brakes on the TT. But that was on the way home, so it may just be pads bedding in.

Very well could be the brakes burning off any manufacturing oils or grease on pads or drums.Keep a eye on it next time your headed out.
