As previously mentioned, I was not happy with the performance of my brake controller. I ordered a top of the line Tekonsha P3 brake controller,
very compact as you can see side by side with a 12 oz soda can.
When I removed the old controller and makeshift wiring (the new controller came with "plug and play" wiring designed for my Dodge), I found the old controller was actually broken.
The new controller worked great on the 200 mile trip to our next destination, but that is for tomorrows post.
