rustysfan is on a distinguished road

I bought the factory ITBM and installed it my self in my 2012 ram. Had to get my dealer to put it in computer so it would work. Really nice look in dash. Now my question, I set the Gain at 4.0 and took trailer on its maiden trip. Trailer is 27ft, #5800 empty so with all my gear about 6200. While traveling up a rather steep hill about 4 miles long my truck was roaring and then I started smelling brakes burning. I pulled over and put gain at 0 and truck pulled like there was no trailer. As long as I keep it at 0, when I apply brakes the unit reads 1.0 then 2.0 with a max of 3.0. is this normal operation for this? Dealer said that's how it works, computer "knows" when more brake is needed. I can not find any operational info in my manual.
