I recently decided to upgrade my brake controller. The one I had was a
Tru-control by Hensley. It seemed to work fine but this past year had lost it's digital display. I sort of, kinda liked it but found it jerking the trailer on light application of brakes. It also delayed the release on the brakes and I found that annoying. Other than that all was well. I browsed around here and decided to go high end and my short list was Maxbrake or Direct-link. In the end I went with the Direct-link. I ordered it last week direct from Airstream and it came promptly with a free shipping promotion they were offering. Easy installation. I needed to wire in the 4 wire pigtail they included since my truck did not have one pre-wired. At least not one that I was able to find under the dash. Other than a pain in the butt for my big hands to reach the wire ends to squash the connectors it went nicely and the connection could not be easier. Yesterday I had the chance to move my son's trailer that is parked in front of mine to test the hookup and make sure it recognized my trailer when plugged in. All systems go upon plug in and the brakes worked. I did not take it out for a road test but we will be heading out for Florida in about 3 wks so I'll find out then if I like it. I think I will take the old one with me just in case I find a problem with my installation.
Anyhow. The installation is a breeze and all's well so far. I'll see if I like it and post an opinion after a few miles.
