Brake Controller Recommendations

It appears that my Husky - Quest brake controller has died after only 2 years. I am looking for recommendations on a replacement for it. I have a 19ft travel trailer hitched to a Chevy 1500 W/T.

Thanks,
Chuck

Prodigy P3 or P2 depending how much you want to spend. I have a P3 it is very smooth and has great diagnostics built it. It helped me find a open break wire I had that wasn't allowing the brakes to work properly.

Thanks! Those are double the cost of the Quest, but I guess you get what you pay for...

Another vote for the Prodigy P2. Switching to this from a Hayes Brakeman (timer based) solved a slow speed grabbing/pulsing issue.

a Prodigy P2 is easily found under $100.

yes it can. For example, anyone who cares to PM me would find a used P2 for less than that amount.

The P2 has the feature of operating at any angle, eliminating any 'leveling' issues.

Another vote for P2 or P3. I have P3 and like the additional diagnostics. Both have the same guts, though, so provide essentially the same braking.

I have researched this quite a bit and plan on installing a p2 or p3 as soon as I have time to do it (might have to do it on a camping trip if its going to happen before winter )

Other than pretty bells an whistles (which I like) is there any real difference between the P2 and P3?

Also, are they easy to install in replacement of a timer based controller?
