Default Rear brake issues ??

Anybody had problems with the rear brakes not applying fully?
Didn't notice any problem till I started pulling the trailer with the 09, but it doesn't stop as well as the 07. The rear pads are bigger on the 09 too so I would expect BETTER braking, but not the case.
I've noticed a couple times stopping in some gravel or sand the front tires will slide.
Bled the rear ones a couple weeks ago. No air, and no change in braking.
The rear rotors are shiny so they must be applying some at some point, but the stopping power really sucks!
No lights or codes.
Saw somewhere where someone talked about bypassing the rear brake proportioning valve, or something like that.

Any thoughts?
