We're still in learning mode here. I've looked underneath and believe our PUP has electric brakes - it's got all the described items listed on other threads here for electric brakes. The TV has the necessary round plug for the trailer pigtail. The dealer failed (yet again! ) to mention the need for a brake controller to make things work correctly. We managed our first trip safely (and unknowingly ) without one, but want to get one installed before we go too far again. We're pretty much done for the season except Camp Backyard because of other commitments. So I've got a few questions. I've read on here about the Prodigy, the Odyssey, and a P3 controllers. I don't know anything about these, so does anyone have any recommendations? Are they easy to install or should we have our local shop do it? Is there anything else I should know/watch for with electric brakes? We're both usually the DIY types, but don't do a lot with our vehicles. We've got a Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 for the TV. Thanks!
