brake control

Has anyone used the Tekonsha 90250 prodigy RF electronic brake control? I have a 2004 Adventurer an to we an enclosed trailer that requires a brake control.
Are they easy to install? Do they work?
Any comments will be appreciated.

I have used the Prodigy on three different trucks and six different trailers when we were pulling travel trailers and fifth wheels. I have never used it on the current motorhome but I was very pleased with the performance in the trucks. If I needed to by another controler, I would purchase the Prodigy in a minute.

We have used the Prodigy for about 10 years, first with an F-250 pulling a toy hauler. Currently we use the same unit with our '93 Suburban and 07 class A. Neither install was difficult. Had to run the wire (length of the vehicle) for the SUV, but the MH (Newmar Ventana) already had the wire run and marked for brake controller use. Biggest challenge was to make a bracket to hold the Prodigy bracket level, within reach of the driver & not somewhere restricting driver leg room.

First trip out with a small car in our toy hauler it almost got away from us. Supposed expert RV place had not installed the hitch correctly which led to severe swaying. Used the brake controller to regain control (trailer almost got perpendicular to the truck). The controller was worth its weight in gold that day. The new trailer went back to the manufacturer to have the damage caused by the swaying replaced. It was so severe, the wheels hit the trailer body and bent the spring shackles. Tires, wheels & suspension parts had to be replaced.
