I have a Reese in mine Caleb, digital brakeman or whatever they call it. So simple even I can't screw it up! I got mine from my local trailer axle supplier, I got a good deal on it ;)

Prodigy by tekonsha im always pulling a trailer it works great easy to set. Little more expensive than others but its by far worth it.

I also have the Prodigy, it is pricy but it is the best controller currently on the market.

I highly recommend the Prodigy. I swapped over to it and love it. Like the boost feature(where you can choose three levels of initial pressure).

I just installed the Prodigy on Friday and towed a 36' trailer on Saturday. All I can say after the 300 mile trip is I will only recomend this unit, it works hands down better then any other controller I have ever used.

When you guys say its 'pricey' are we talking about the same brake?

I found it for about 120 bucks, to me thats pretty cheap from the few I have seen at my local traler sales place. am I looking at the right one?

thanks guys!
