I did all of this and installed my old P2 into the dash myself. I have been on a few trips and I still am very happy with the P2. I am sure that the P3 would be even better.
You just convinced me to install the P3 I took out of my Tacoma when I traded it in for the Tundra. I'm constantly trying to adjust the stock controller with no luck. P3 was no trouble.

Have used our P3 on three vehicles so far. It's flat out a keeper. I love the way it modulates braking based on the hill angle as well. Once I set it right, the AS stays behind us with no "push". It and the ProPride, properly tuned, make for a nice, comfortable, and safe ride while towing. The accelerometer technology in the P3 seems to be the best tech so far.

Thanks for the update. Let us know how it goes.

What is your tow vehicle BTW? Some are easier than others apparently, in terms of adding an after-market controller.

Have a good weekend.

Peter

It's going on a 2011 Ford Expedition, towing a 30 Int'l Serenity. I'll update on the install.

Check YouTube for video assistance.
There was my exact vehicle and instructions on where the connector was.

P3 ... when I bought my Airstream, I negotiated that the dealer throw in (and install) a brake controller.

I knew nothing about controllers, and had no which were good ones and which were just OK.

Dealer put in a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 ... now I know that's hot stuff!

Good for JD Sanders RV.

Now, what's this stuff about the P3 doing something when I'm going downhill? is that automatic, or something I should turn on?

The P2 or 3 is the minimum

State of the art is the TUSON Direclink.

Made it home towing the trailer and wanted to say thanks for all the recommendations for the P2-P3!

Install took me about 20 minutes with the aid of the you tubes.

I set power level to 5 which worked well on the highway, but had a bit too much bite with boost set to 2 in the city. I ended up backing it down to 4.5 which was perfect all around.

The accelerometer braking was great in sudden braking scenarios.
