Brake Issue 1993 Win Vectra Ford Chassis

I recently saw some info on brakes that have been sitting. My recent purchase of the above started with a few rusted out brake lines. My guy cleaned all the brakes, put new tag axle brakes on, bled the system, got all the old fluid out.
When I took it out, I felt the tag axle kicking in way before the Reg brakes, Almost like they were doing all the work. I brought it back, they got more air out of the system. Took it out again, still the same. My question, is there an adjustment on the tag axle that will make it kick in later as I depress the pedal or is it solely working off the brake light switch.
Any Advise

Depends.

Are your tag brakes electric or hydraulic?

Does the tag system have some sort of brake controller then like for a trailer that you can adjust. The power input to the brakes would have to be connected to something I would think to apply the brakes.

I have been scowering the internet trying to find a location or information where and how to adjust it. You can usually find info, but this I am coming to a wall.
They are Electric controlled, I feel them kicking in, but it is coming on to soon. Everything was replaced on the tag, all the other brakes were good, but dirty from sitting, they cleaned everything up. They said everything was moving freely.
From how it feels it just seems they tag brakes are engaging to soon.

My tag brakes are hydraulic so a very different system, but I believe you will find the electric brake controller up under the dash - or so I've read.
