New to towing, Prodigy controler

I am new to 5th wheeling (295RST Crusader)
Tow vehicle: 2006 Dodge 2500 diesel 5.9 Long box
Question is how good is the Prodigy RF brake controler #90250.
Looks like it takes a bit of time to setup.
Anything I should know would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to iRV2.

I installed dozens of the Prodigy brake controllers , before I retired from a Dodge dealer in 2007; not sure about that model number though. Never had one come back with problems. Most times I only had the truck during the install, so I couldn't road test with the trailer , but never had a customer come back saying they couldn't get everything working from the instructions.

Doesn't look like the Prodigy wireless type is used much with the other drivers. But thanks anyway.
I bought it and hope it is good

I used it years ago when I had a tow dolly. It was fairly easy to set up and worked well. Gave good feedback on how much braking was being applied. And you could adjust it while driving. Much better that the brake buddy I use now.
