Ok ... so my toad (a mini-cooper) is currently being configured with a base plate and wiring for towing flat. The brake system I am going to use is the Blue Ox Patriot. The question I have (that I have not previously seen an answer to...) is: just how do you go about verifying that you have the gain on the proportional braking set correctly??? Too low, and the braking force is being transmitted through the hitch (the mini is still 3500 pounds ... not good for the tow bar!). Too high a braking force and the Mini will be trying to do most of the braking of the MH (NOT good for the brakes on the mini
also not too good for the tow bar also). With the mini so light relative to the MH, I would imagine it is quite difficult to detect/sense which vehicle is pulling/pushing which??
So, just how does one go about adjusting the braking force so that it is "just right"???
