I will move my brakesmart to my next ten trucks!! No adjustments whether I'm pulling the 5th wheel, 25 ft epuipment trailer with 6 cords of logs, 4 place snowmobile, or dump trailer with a load of sand and gravel. It brakes with the presure of your trucks system. Last summer it alerted me to the fact that my brake pedal was not coming all the way up because it shows the psi on the display.

Can't speak for the others cause Brakesmart is all I ever owned. It is 6 years old and still works fine.

I have pulled other trailers with electric brakes other than my 5ver and there is no adjustment to be made just hook the trailer to be pulled up and the brakes work flawlessly with the Brakesmart.

Purchased my air brake MDT with a Reese, I switched to a Prodigy (slightly better) then went to Max Brake which has an air transducer tapped into the air brake supply line which makes it truly proportional.
