Wireless brake controller for Rockwood A127TH?

Wondering if anybody is using a Tekonsha or other wireless RF brake controller on their Rockwood A-frame rig. I need to get up to speed with the brakes (chose not to bother on the first trip since I used the F350 to tow), and it's looking like Tekonsha and Reese are the primary manufacturers, with Tekonsha's Prodigy RF wireless having a lot of customers. Aside from what are described as some head-scratching during the pairing routine, the reviews for the Tekonsha are consistently favorable.

So, any words of wisdom from wireless controller users towing Rockwood A-frames?


Newbie to modern-era small RV camping, but grew up in the 1960s with a Cox tent camper w/ parents and 3 sisters. Yes, a little tight in there.

Rockwood A127TH.

I'd worry about losing the wireless link at some critical point. If there's a pairing procedure, is there a way to be sure it won't fail?

How does the power get to the brakes with a wireless controller?

Is there a way to know if the pairing has been lost?

I know my cell phone seems to lose its pairing to the Bluetooth in my car every once in awhile. Sometimes it's just mysteriously "shut off" and other times, it's totally gone. Not a big deal for the phone, but I'd hate to have it happen on my trailer brakes!
