Kodiak hybrid 172E brakes

Took the new trailer out for the maiden voyage this weekend, and tried to set up the brake system with a new TV. Ford F150 with an integrated brake controller.

Never could get them to lock up, even at the highest gain. I'm guessing I need to adjust the brakes at the drum and try again. I've pursued the threads and seen the videos. Looks like something I could do.

FWIW, at 8.5, the trailer stops and slows nice. It bothers me that this ultra light nerds that much gain. And that I never could get them locked up. From what I researched, I should get them to lock up, then back it down a .5.

Long time lurker, first time poster.
