Post Brake Controller?
Looking for an electric trailer brake controller. Wondering what brands you guys have had good luck with. I want to keep it under $100. I am starting a search for a camper which will likely have brakes. I know a few of you regularly tow heavy, so I'd appreciate some input. Thanks!

I have the Tekonsha Prodigy #90195 in my RAM 3500 MegaCab:

What kind of vehicle will you be installing it in??? Most likely Prodigy will have a plug & play harness for your truck that connects to the factory connector under the dash provided your truck is already equipped with a tow package and 7-way plug at the back of the truck.

I *think* I got mine for around $115 or less shipped......I can dig around for the receipt if you want to know exactly where I purchased it.

you know that you can pop that little section out on the left of the radio (the cubby whole) and you can put the factory one in. Just plugs right up. You might check junk yards and see if there is a wrecked truck that has one. As long as it's the new body style it should fit.

Other than that, I think I paid $50 for mine, got it at Trailer Parts in Lawrenceburg. It's a digital Pilot brand I think. They usually have pretty good prices on them if you are ever in the area.

Oh yeah, you should have a wiring pigtail in the glove box, and a square fuse. You will need to put the fuse in the front center fuse panel under the hood, and the pigtail plugs right in, and you can hook up an aftermarket controller.
