Help with travel trailer brakes?

I have a 27' 2005 Jayco Jayflight and recently had the brakes serviced at a dealer[dennis trailer sales]. My brake control is a Tekonsha Voyager (part# 3840). I am having a hard time adjusting my brakes. I have gone through the manual and very carefully followed the directions to adjust the brake controller. However, the problem I am having is: when I brake on the down grade my brakes pulse and the LED light that turns red blinks with the pulsation. The pulsation is quite strong. Any ideas would be helpful.

May have been doing the same thing before the brakes were serviced. You might not have realized it though, because the brakes were not working as well prior to being redone
