Disc Brakes and Break Controller

For those of you with the newer disc breaks (2005 to 2009) what break controller are you using and how do you like it? I am thinking of moving up to a 34 with the disc breaks. I currently have a prodigy controller and I am also considering a Hensley controller. Do they work well with disc breaks and are they worth it. I currently do not have disc breaks. Which brand do you think works the best for disc breaks?

I have a friend with a 2005 Ford F250 with the integrated controller. He have received a lot of good and varying input on this forum recently. So he called Airstream tech support and was informed that sometimes the integrated controller works and sometimes it doesn't. Airstream stated that the 2005 integrated controller isn't designed for disc beaks. My friend started asking questions after he pulled a friends Airstream classic 30 slideout last week and the controller didn't work. He is wondering if there is anyone on this forum who has the integrated controller and has had to utilize an external controller for the disc breaks. If so how what are your inpressions of the differences between the two and what brand are you using? What brand do you think works best for disc breaks.

Your input is appreciated as you guys have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
