I’ve just purchased a flat bed dual axle trailer to haul a tractor and bush hog. I ordered the trailer with electric brakes on one of the axles.
With an unloaded trailer, and the brake controller set to maximum it seems that there is not as much braking force as I would have expected. With the combination rolling at idle speed, full brake application will just bearly bring it to a slow stop.
It’s possible that the brakes need to be adjusted, and I’ll check that this weekend, but in the meantime, can any Dopers tell me how much braking force I should expect. IIRC a friend was setting the electric brake controller on his travel trailer and could lock the wheels. It’s true, this was on a gravel surface, but should I have that kind of power available?
Tow vehicle is a Ford Expedition, trailer weighs 1500# and the brake controller is a Draw-Tite.
