Before we leave on a 3 week adventure the 20th of this month I want to up-grade our BC to one which is easier to calibrate and consistent in its reading/output.
I am not looking for one that will stop a rocket ship (disc breaks will be on our next TT) and complete a 1000 diagnostics.

Any thoughts and/or recommendations on a reliable BC?

Thanks for your inputs.

Happy Trails
Since you already have Tekonsha it's easy
for you to up-grade to the Tekonsha Prodigy 3 I find that it is easy to set up and read the numbers when you set it up and it works in reverse also.
I've used it for 4 yrs.

I had a Voyager in my 91 F350. I put one in my Liberty. It worked. Now that the Ram fas an IBC, wow! I can see how a better brake controller can be.

Big difference between proportional and time delay. For those still rocking the wood grain brake controllers, check out the P3.
