Break Control
What is the best the break control system? I think I read in this forum that Prodigy is really good.

Matter of opinion
You will get a lot of different answers, but I don't think you can go wrong with the Prodigy. I have towed 3 very different trailers with mine with absolute satisfaction. The Prodigy is about the easiest to install and requires only that the maximum effort be adjusted; no levelling is required.

Had a Prodigy on previous SOB and on the AS. Probably was a setup issue, but never could get it right - it was too aggressive or not aggressive enough. Replaced it with the MasterBrake unit, which works flawlessly. The Jordan seems to be also highly regarded.

I went with the MasterBrake BrakeSmart controller. It was an extremely easy and clean install. Works great. :cool:

Had the MasterBrake been available when we bought our rig, that's the route we would've gone. At the time, the best available was the Jordan. I know what the rig is doing and want to control the trailer brakes myself, not have a black box do it based on what it thinks the tow vehicle is doing. The Jordan does require connecting a cable to the dash and brake pedal arm. If you can replace a brake cable on a bicycle, you can do that.

I vote for the Jordan....
For the same reasons RoadKingMoe pointed out above.

Truthfully, there have been good reports from all three brands previously mentioned.

Agreed. All 3 have their loyal customers ... had the BrakeSmart not been available ... I would have opted for the Jordan ... and felt just fine about it.
