Can someone help me trouble shoot my brake controller. I have a Journey HD brake controller and it doesn't seem to apply enough power to the brakes. My father pulls the same trailer with a draw tite ii controller and it works fine. He can run his at 5.5 output and even with mine maxed out at 9.9 it doesn't stop nearly as good as his cause its using alot of truck brakes. Not sure where to start to figure out what the problem is. Thanks

I had the same problem happen with mine at one point and what it ended up being is the wires going into the truck half of my 7 pin connector were corroding and not making as good a contact.

I unplugged mine the other day and everything seemed to be in good shape. I am going to try and test maybe the output voltage at the 7 pin plug to see if its getting enough power, or buy a different brake controller. Any body have any ideas. i have ruled out the trailer because it works awesome behind my fathers truck.
