    Default Controller Setup

    I have a new P2 controller and the manual says hold the manual brake lever over and set to 6 to start with... Do you do the initial setup and testing
    With an empty trailer or does it matter?

    The book way of doing it is adjust to a point where you can lock up the wheels at 10 mph then back them off to the point where they just will not lock up.

    You must adjust each and evey time as load varies.

    Or if road conditions change? For example wet to dry or dry to wet.

    There are a couple of other setting to play with as well. I had a prodigy a couple years ago and they are very good controllers.
