Trailer brake controller?

I have electric brakes on my car trailer and am looking to add a controller to the motorhome. Who has what and how do you like it?

I'm using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 for my trailer with the Jeep on it. Good display very adjustable and just flat works. I hope your coach is pre-wired. fishing that wire all the way back neatly is fun . . . . . .


The above post is just my experience/opinion which is worth exactly what you paid for it.

'05 Lance 845/'06 F-250 or '99 Alpine 36SDS Usually towing an '01 Wrangler locked on 35"s or moderate '98 Cherokee on 33"s (rear locker only)

if its a f/l frame, the trailer brake harness is up under the dash out of sight
its a dodge pin connector, i just removed the end and spliced in the prodigy harness, took about 5 minutes once i found the connector
a quick call to f/l 800 number and they told me right where to look, and which wires went where to be double sure

I have been told the wire should be underneath by the column. The P3 is exactly what I was looking at. Thanks for the confirmation that it works good.
