Too much trailer brake.

Hi group.
What can be done about my two axle flatbed utility trailer? When I hit the brake it comes on too strong on the trailer and the brakes skid on the trailer even with the trailer brake setup in the most minimal setting. Is there some kind of an adjustable resistor that can be put on the power line going to the trailer brakes?

Re: Too much trailer brake.

The trailer brakes may be set up too tight. You also want the proportional brake controller, the cheaper time delay type are not suitable for a heavy trailer such as yours.
