Have been using this for the last 5 seasons, set it once and forget it. 24yrs Stream'n best I've used.

But it's like TV, hitch's and tires everyones got there own opinion.

We have two tow vehicles. One has a Tekonsha Prodigy, the other has a Tekonsha P3. Ive had the Prodigy for 5 years and the P3 for 3 years. Both have operated flawlessly.

Small sampling but clear result! Thanks to all responders. Looks like a P-3 for me!

Max Brake. I like the idea that I'm working with the pressure in my brake system to create the signal that controls my brake system.

Had a P3 in my last TV that was stolen last year and loved it. Tried to save a few bucks in my replacement TV with a P2 controller that was on sale at CW. I just can't seem too get the P2 dialed in and am now thinking of getting another P3.
