2015 Discovery

My classic Brake Buddy that works off braking interia rarely comes on. It is set on the 6th of 7 settings. I have the sending/receiving unit that does work, showing when energized.
I brake easy, usually letting drag slow me down. Of course the last few MPH the RV air brakes have to be used. Even on medium braking the Brake Buddy does not come on. The test button/brake away switch works too.
I've even tested it in the passenger side. OK.
Do I need to set it on 7?
Is this normal for many of you?
Full Timers.
