Brake controller recommendation.

Hi all,

I will towing a 2500lb vehicle, on a tow dolly, behind a 2016 335DS this summer. The tow dolly has electric brakes.

I know there are different types of controllers, and wonder what type works best in the mountains, using the engine to help brake the coach on the downhills.

If anyone has a brake controller that they really like, I'd appreciate a recommendation.

Thank you,

John

I have a Tekonsha Prodigy p3 Brake controller. I have one installed on my truck and motorhome. It works great and very easy to install.

Prodigy P2 or P3 are both excellent controllers and I own and use both.

Just a suggestion. Make it easier for members and use private messaging here on the forums.
