The way you are supposed to set it up is to drive about 1/4 mile or so with the manual lever at 1/2 way to warm up the brakes. Then you can stop and pull over, switch the manual lever all the way to the left and then use the scroll wheel to set the brakes to maximum "13". Then start driving again and brake with the manual lever by putting it all the way left. Have your window open so that you can hear if the tires are locking up. If they are lower the brake power to 12, then to 11, then to 10. Until you no longer here the tires locking up.

We usually try to find a gravel parking lot to drive around while adjusting the brake controller setting so that the trailer wheels brake and beginning skidding on the gravel. Then, reduce the brake setting a little and try this on a hard surface.

Having used this method for two campers, it seems to work well and the camper seems to stop pushing the tow vehicle.
