Is there a way to increase TBC Gain past 10

I picked up my new 40' fifth wheel last week and have not been able to get enough stopping power with my gain set at 10. I used to tow a travel trailer and setting it at 4.5 was perfect, now this trailer still pushes the truck with it maxed out.

I was thinking it might be the trailer so i towed it around with my buddies Dodge, i know crap, with a prodigy controller and it stopped great only turned up 1/2 way.

I see when i click through the message center of my truck that there is a screen that says something like TBC Gain = 0.0, is there a way to turn up the master gain so the dash controller will put our more power?

Truck is a 2008 F350 Lariat

I have done some searching but couldn't find a good answer

Check to make sure the connections are clean, also, check the brake adjustment on the trailer.
