    Does anyone, here, use a Prodigy P3 with a tandem axle (single brake axle) utility or car trailer? If so, can you provide some guidance on what power settings to use at specific loads/weights? (Rought eyeball is fine.) I'm asking in an effort to minimize trial/error/learning time. The Prodigy P3 manul provides some starting points but I'm hoping for something more granular and well-rounded...

    I installed the P3 for a 7x12 V-Nose tandem with brakes on both axles. I followed the manual to sync the brakes to truck and it works very well. It took me a total of 4 stops with the trailer brakes from 20mph to get them to the edge of lock. Now I just use the programmer setting to customize for weight/braking preference. The manual was pretty much spot on for my application.
    It's a great controller!
