Automatically adjusts to the position of the tow vehicle on any terrain as you drive, with no manual leveling.
The Prodigy P2 electric brake controller supplies power to your tow vehicle's brakes proportionally. This means that your trailer brakes at the same time and with the same strength as your vehicle - even in reverse gear. So if you have to slam on your truck's brakes, the trailer's brakes respond instantly, too - there's no delay. Thus your vehicle's brakes aren't overworked from trying to stop the entire load, and they suffer less wear and tear. The P2 also cuts power to the trailer's brakes when your vehicle is stopped - extending the life of the magnets and brake shoes in the trailer's brake assemblies.

Aside from smoother, more efficient braking that results from proportional application of stopping power, the Prodigy P2 also has a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those times when you're towing heavier loads. That's when more braking power is needed to stop the trailer at the same time as the tow vehicle. The boost setting sends 13 or 25 percent more power (depending on which setting you choose) back to the trailer brakes, thus compensating for heavier loads. You can boost the power manually at the push of a button as well. The boost feature gets more power to the trailer brakes exactly when you need it most, and your fully loaded rig brakes smoothly and comfortably.

This brake controller levels automatically as you drive, so there's no problem using it on steep hills or when towing through the mountains. The self-leveling feature also makes the Prodigy easy to install: Simply mount it in your cab at any vertical angle (it has 360-degree rotation). It's easy to see the display and to access the pivoting manual override lever on the bottom of the unit.

The P2's continuous diagnostic check monitors your connection and magnet condition, so you can fix any problems before they land you on the side of the road. This newest version of Tekonsha's popular Prodigy brake controller has reverse battery protection to preserve the unit and accessory systems. And the power-save mode reduces battery drain when the controller isn't in use.

The included mounting pocket and pigtail wiring harness make your brake controller portable. Your unit slides out of the pocket mount for easy transfer of the brake controller to another vehicle. And one end of the pigtail harness hard-wires directly into your vehicle, while the other plugs into your P2. Just unplug the unit to move it to another car, truck or SUV for storage.

For even simpler brake controller installation, a make-and-model specific wiring adapter can be available (sold separately) for certain cars, trucks, and SUVs (see fitguide). One end of the custom brake-control adapter plugs into a pre-wired port under the dash, and the other end plugs into your controller - no hard-wiring required. An instructional DVD that is included with the brake controller's written instructions allows you to take full advantage of all the features.

I was towing a 31 5th wheel with an Activator II brake controller for 15 years, and just bought a new 35 travel trailer this spring. Weight is approximately the same (7600 lbs) This Prodigy does everything as advertised. Easy to adjust, exceptionally smooth braking, forward and reverse. Almost forget the trailer is back there. Well worth the money.

Soooo much better than the other one I had. It was included in the trailer purchase and obviously bottom of the line. This Prodigy P2 product stops smooth with my Ford 150 towing a 28 foot travel trailer.

At the time I first started camping we bought a Wal-Mart brand. We just couldn't take all the snatching and jerking when breaking, even jerking to ease up at a red light (I did adjust them and it didn't help any). I bought the Prodigy and have been extremely satisfied! I pull a 28' travel trailer with a F150 4x4. Very smooth when breaking!! Highly recommend this product!
