The p3 comes with a bag to put it in when not in use if you chose to remove it. It also has a quick disconnect right on it. The plug just plugs into the back of it. I think this BC is the best at least for electric brakes. The way this system is built if you have 2 vehicles you could tow with, all you need to do is buy another install kit for the BC with the brackets and plug. Then you can just move the BC to the other vehicle if need be.

Just had a P3 installed last week when we picked up our new TT. That thing works like a charm. Hands down the best controller I have used. Got it on Ebay for $115. Get it, you will not be disappointed.

@terier, yes I do, I'm not hitting my knee on it, plus I'm customizing my interior with billet, carbon fiber, etc and I don't want some bulky BC on the display.

I have the tekonsha wireless brake controller and it works great. Just plug it in the cigaret lighter when you need it.

4 thumbs up for the Prodigy P3 (DW + me).

We had a Draw-Tite BC that turned out to be a piece of #$%^&. More on this another day. We made a stop at a shop while on our current camping trip to get the new P3 BC installed because the old one was so #$%^& awful.

The P3 came with a little carrying case so we can unplug it and store it for the winter. We didn't pay extra for a plug-in feature. Maybe the latest ones are plug-in? What a terrific BC!

1st reading the post, I thought what the heck ??? But here it is: Prodigy Wireless Brake Controller by Tekonsha - PPL Motor Homes

Seems simple....but a little expensive.

I got mine from adventure rv. They had the best price. $277 http://www.adventurerv.net/tekonsha-...l-p-22392.html.

It costs more than a wired one but installation is easy and you don't have a brake controller to hit your knee on, or clutter up the dash.

I learn something new here everyday. I had no idea that Prodigy makes a wireless BC. It wouldn't work well with our setup, though, as I have two 12v power adapters and both are used on our trips. The hard-mounted unit is also a bit cleaner to me because of the lack of a 12-volt cord.

Dang they have the best prices on the Prodigy P2 and P3 controllers I've found so far! Looks like I'll be using them.
