First a big welcome to iRV2. We hope you enjoy the site.
Did the 04 Ford have the integrated brake controller?
If not, you can't go wrong with the MaxBrake of BrakeSmart controllers. They tie into the hydraulic systems and provide a smooth proportional signal to the trailer.
The old Jordan 2020 Ultima was a great deal, but they are out of production now.
The other brake controllers (Prodigy included) are all inertia type controllers and have no direct link to the brake system. These are definately a 2nd tier level of controller.
The inertia controllers, cheaper and a bit easier to install and work 90% of the time. Problem is I want a controller that will work 100% of the time. I had one bad experience with a Prodigy and that was the end of that controller.
