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.
Tekonsha Prodigy P3 (90195) Electronic
  • Bought this to plug into my 2008 Toyota Tundra so I can pull the 32’ tandem axel RV. This is the best controller I have ever used. Does the guess work for you. Great buy.
  • Never used it. Sold it with a tandem axel trailer. Gave it five stars because I could not honestly rate it without using it.
  • Works great controlling my heavy tandem axel trailer, very easy install with correct harness
  • We use it with a full-sized Ford van paired to a large dual-axel travel trailer, an application where it performed flawlessly, applying appropriate braking force no matter the terrain or situation. Highly recommended!
  • This brake controller just works. Install it (make sure to get it installed parallel to the direction of travel - see the instructions for diagrams), set the type of brakes and trailer size and pretty much forget about it

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.

  • This sceen has some cool features as some useful features. "Backlight" allows you to brighten or dim the brightness of the display.
  • This is a safety feature to keep the trailer from pushing against the tow vehicle and thus not to loose control when braking. It promotes overall better braking performance and decreases the likelihood of jack-knifing.
  • With the level of performance it has, along with the additional features it provides, I believe this has to be one of the best trailer brake controllers available anywhere.
  • Tons of features but at the end of the day I bought it cause it's the best. Plus it's pretty inexpensive so why not pay the extra few bucks when whatever your towing is worth thousands.
  • Single star deduction for sticking buttons after a very short amount of time. Not a huge deal as I never make adjustments on the go, but it could be troublesome for some people.
