General Specifications
About the Product
Reverse battery protection for both vehicle and breakaway. Designed to work with electric over hydraulic brake systems. Numerous mounting options - including 360 degree vertical rotation. Digital display depicts voltage delivery to trailer during braking. No level adjustment necessary - it adjusts itself to varying terrain as you drive. Great for backing into tough spots! Works proportionally in reverse with the ability to disable when not needed. Produces stops that are in proportion to vehicles deceleration rate. "Boost" feature gives users the ability to apply more initial trailer braking power when towing heavier trailers. Continual diagnostics check for proper connection, shorted magnet conditions and much more. Quick and easy disconnect feature allows user to remove and store the control when not in use. Electric trailer brake control for up to 4 braking axles.
The REESE Towpower POD™ trailer brake control is designed for one to two axle trailers. It is an economical time-based brake control which generates an output signal that increases over a period of time which is called ramp cycle. It applies braking power at a fixed rate that is not proportional to the pressure applied to the brake pedal.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Tekonsha Prodigy P2 (90885) Electronic Brake Control
  • The inertia response is great, though. Have been using on a 2006 Xterra with a 4200lb camper with dual Dexter axles for 6 months now.
  • My trailer has two axles with brakes and the unit setup and works great. In the mountains, I find that on the fly adjustments are easily accomplished with the large screen and large wheel.
  • Installed in the RV, controls the tandem axle brakes well, easy to install, good instructions.
  • I bought it for my dad to be able to haul a large triple-axle toy hauler trailer with his F-250 diesel and it works like a charm. Easy install and easy to use.
  • Works great, had a short in the break system and this thing detected it, even though it was the wire in the axle. pain to find though.
Reese Towpower 74377 Pod Brake control
  • I purchased the Reese Towpower based on previous reviews and price. I have brake controllers in four other vehicles and I love this one. I never tow anything more than 2 axle (except for with my F350) and this controller works great in my Excursion.
  • I occasionally tow campers or boats as a side job. This brake controller gets the job done 100%. No problems yet and I will update if any arise.
  • Easy to intall easy to use and works great!Do not hesitate to buy this product you won't be sorry.
  • Purchased this one and you can mount it upside down if you like. (I did) Timed brakes work very well, had no problems with it stopping my 18" trailer towing a car.
  • Bought it and installed it, it worked sometimes for about a week then turned off one day and never turned back on

What customers say about "Features"
Tekonsha Prodigy P2 (90885) Electronic Brake Control
  • his controller has a boost feature which is handy when loads change. Pulling the single or double PWC trailers does not require any boost, as does the flat trailer when empty.
  • There is also a boost feature (that is adjustable also) on this model.
  • This is a very smart unit. I really like the feature to hold the button down when brake is engaged to go into reverse mode.
  • I bought this one and it is exactly the same just newer and has a feature that if it is turned all the way down when a trailer is plugged in it flashes at you to let you know you have no trailer brakes.
  • It has some additional features such as variable boost control and reverse lock out for backing up. Very nice. As long as it's reliable its a perfect fit to my needs.
Reese Towpower 74377 Pod Brake control
  • Used this Reese unit with a tekonsha 3040-p adapter plug to connect to my 2015 Toyota Tacoma with no splicing! Plug and play.
  • This was bought for adding to my Chevy Suburban. The provided installation instructions effectively stepped me through the installation process.
  • I like the ease of the dial adjustment on the unit as it allows me to make easy adjustments based on the trailering conditions.
  • Install was easy on my 2012, Ford F-150. Tech support was very responsive and helpful. Perfect for my travel and it worked great on my recent 1000 mile trip.
  • It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the higher end controllers but it's a good product for a low price.
  • Haven't hooked it up yet but when I opened the package I realized it didn't even come with the screws to hold the mount to the unit...I figured that would be with it at least.
