jordan 2020 brake controller

anyone have an opinion on this "cable" driven unit that attaches to the brake pedal bar itself, and increases the amp in direct porportion to the amount of travel on the brake pedal?

I see some advantages, but don't know anyone who has used it.

I've got a Jordan unit and love it. I think it works much better than the Tekonsha Voyager it replaced. I use it on the Airstream, a 10,000 GVW flatbed equipment trailer and a horse trailer. I love it.

For what it's worth I had considered one , every reply anyone had about jordan has been positive. However I decided to go with the brake smart controler which does the braking based off of pressure from a transducer t'eed into the brake line. same with it all replies in research wher positive. Mine has been on a week and wont be towing for another 2 weeks for first report.

I've used the Jordan for the last two years. Before that we used the tedonsha. I think the Jordan matches my braking more closely than the prior one. We have probably put about 15,000 miles on the trailer with the Jordan.

Try it your'll like it.

One advantage of the Ultima is that it is half the price of the Brakesmart.

Just unhook the cable when you're not towing like they say in the instructions. Between that and corroded cable plugs, mine fried the big transistor inside. They fixed it for less than $30.

I'm still very happy with it. A whole lot better than the Techonsha I borrowed while it was being fixed. It's easy to adjust between loaded and empty when I pull the flatbed or the AS, and you just set it for the weight and leave it.

The Jordan is O.K. & has real advantages over most others. I put the Brakesmart in mid-summer & wonder why I didn't do it sooner. So what if it cost a little more, this unit WORKS. True proportional braking, no adjusting for hwy, cty, backing, etc. Just press the cal. sw. after hook-up & drive!! Nothing like it except the new optional $400+ Ford controller which uses the same technology.
