I had a new brake control installed on my TV (2000 Dodge Dakota V8). It was a Journey brand. My previous experience was with a Tekonsha. The Journey instructions say to set the digital readout at "30." The readout only goes to 9.9. I followed the instructions for testing it at 20mph, but I don't feel confident they are set right. Is there a simple method of setting the two adjustments (brake pressure balance - not locking up, not being too loose) and (ramp setting - trailer brake delay time)? I went back to the installer, and he couldn't explain the "30" setting, said just to take it out and set it by "feel." The brakes
, and axle
assembly only have about 500 miles on them. Also, I can't lock the brakes
with the control lever...does "lock up" mean they would drag in that position if you tried to continue to pull the trailer forward? The trailer is a 1980 Scamp
16'er. I checked the instruction manual on the following website: http://www.hitchsource.com/docs/valley/52740.pdf
and they read the same as the ones that came with the unit.
