RAM 3500 setting for Disc Brakes

Hi,

we did a thing yesterday and now I am trying to figure out the right trailer brake settings with our new camper.
We have the Disc-brakes from the Legacy packages.
On our 2017 RAM 3500 there is Light Electric/Hydraulic and Heavy Electric Electric/Hydraulic.

I try to test it but I think I do not feel a lot of difference.

What are guys running with?

Thanks

Go with Heavy Electric/Hydraulic. Just had disc brakes installed at MORryde and that's what they told me with my 2018 Ram. Have the gain set at 4.5 and working well so far.

I run "Heavy Electric Electric/Hydraulic" and a setting of seven I think. Will have to look next Sunday when I hook up again.

3500 Ram DRW running Heavy on setting 8.0 with electric brakes - I did notice a difference when I went from light to heavy setting. Disc brakes - on my wish list - could prolly turn down to 4.0 with those. Happy with the braking though at this time.
