nice. most people mount them where that little useless pop out comparment is under the fog light switch. there is some space behind there if u want it hidden. that is where i plan to mount mine when i get it. look into a tranny cooler also.
Hey Lotust, the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller is rated # 1 and comes with a Plug & Play vehicle specific harness. You can also change the screen colors.:thumbup: Does anyone have a "plug and play model and harness?
+1 that camper looks niceeeee.... :thumbup:damn lotust, did you get a signing bonus for being a moderator!!!!!

What is the major difference?I also got a Tekonsha, not the P3 tho. The Salesman talked me out of spending another 60 bucks. I couldn't believe it. I mounted mine in the pocket in front of the shift.
I wish. We just spent the Tax returns :lol: You only live once right ? Plus the wife agreed !damn lotust, did you get a signing bonus for being a moderator!!!!!
Thanks Tony. its pretty nice inside for an untra light model. I just fit in there. It suks to be on the large side sometimes. :clap:+1 that camper looks niceeeee.... :thumbup:
Lotust, you have awesome timing with this thread! I was just about to post up the same thing. I'll be getting a trail rig next weekend and I'll be looking into a trailer brake for towing it.
I like that idea. Thanks for the reply! Did you have the Tow package allready? I would like to see how is disconnects.I mounted my tekonsha (regular prodigy, not the p3 model) to the cubby under the switches on the left side of the dash. I have the tow package, so the wiring harness just plugs in, and I coiled the excess wiring and stuck it in the actual cubby. Then I bought another cubby, so when I'm not towing the trailer, I just unplug the wiring and pop the whole cubby out, and pop the new one in. I like being able to remove it easily when no in use.
It's a little in the way of my left knee when I'm getting in the truck, but it was the best place I could find for it. I have a picture or 2 laying around, I'll find and add them.
Im going to look into the wireless one. Do you remember the make of it? Im guessing it woks off Inertia. I bet there not cheap.i just rented this heavy ass bobcat that weighed well over 6500lb's with the trailer from home depot, and they gave me this wireless brake controller that is specific just for the trailer. i thought it was awesome cause i had never seen that before. it plugs right into the cigarette lighter and u can control it just like a normal brake controller. i thought it was pretty cool.
pretty big bed lotust.
break the trailer in yet?:lol:
Where did you run the wiring? Did you just drill through the back of the cubby?I mounted mine in the cubby in front of the shifter below my Sirius tuner. Its out of the way easy to get to.
