I like my Prodigy
Tekonhsa is good as well.
Max Brake sounds interesting, Im gonna take a look.


I have a prodigy on my Titan for the toy hauler works great, fully digital easy to tune. towing 9K with a 1/2 ton pickup no issues braking.

My standard Prodigy works fine with the Titan BrakeRite II.

It is calibrated to your truck, not the trailer in tow. All the reviews I read for it from RV message boards give it outstanding marks.

I second that!

The best controller I have ever used. I gave my P3 away.

No Adjustment SMOOTH!!!!!!!!!

It was your posts that lead me to the Maxbrake over the P3. Thanks!

You are welcome.

I'm glad you are as pleased with it as I am.

I just bought a new toy hauler for the Harley and set it up for that trailer in one minute and it worked as nice and smooth with it as the Myco.

Well worth the money.

Dock, what make of truck are you using?
I was checking my line connections and felt a small wettness.

After close inspection, it was appearant that the tee fitting shipped with the controller is for a 1/4" line. My Ford truck has 3/16 lines, so the flare joint DOES NOT seal correctly. In fact, it doesn't seal on the taper, but on the tip by flattening the end of the tees flare. I removed the tee and looked at the flare inside the female end of the tee and the tip of it is flatened because the line isn't large enough to fit over the taper.
I found the website for that tee and it is made for a 1/4" brake line pass thru with a 3/16 take off. The one shipped with my controller is pt # 7904. (will be stamped on the side of the tee) The correct one for my Ford is #7933. Napa has them in stock.

Please check yours out as it could lead to chit going bad real quick.

The plugs are different in US and Europe. Norway has in its turn another plug... the only problem is that trailers must be not longer than 12 meters, and of it is a gooseneck, it also have to have ABS on the trailer!! Makes me sick... No US trailers have registrations here as they have not "type-approved" brakes and lights. I am working on this and have the got registrations on my South Florida Trailer.
