Hardy welcome to the forums from Texas!! Also congrats on the new acquisition.
We went through a few different brake controllers on our TV before finally finding the Prodigy. Easy install, well made and durable. I believe the Prodigy recommendation originated from researching these very forums. Their is a wealth of information here.
As for backing up practice...huge vacant parking lots seem to work well for us. Watch out for the light poles however!! My wife gained her maneuvering "expertise" via that route. I'm sure you'll pick up on it quickly.
**Note: Nothing accelerates the backing up learning curve better than; my spouse and twin 7 y.o. grandson's after a 300 mile ride, then backing up into a site in total darkness. Flashlights you say? Yep, we had them. The twins always seem more concerned about what's in the trees than setting the camper up. Life is good!!
