Brake Controller

Looks like my brake controller of many years is on its last leg. I was wondering what brake controller Escape owners are currently are happy with. We are towing a 2017 19 with a V8 Dodge Durango. Any info would be deeply appreciated. Thanks and Happy Camping.

Things are more like they are now than they've ever been before.

I've used Tekonsha Voyagers for years without any issues... I'd get a P3 if I was buying a new one, the Voyager is an older 'analog' proportional, the P3 is a smart digital one.

I had a Tekonsha P2 that developed an attitude; replaced with a P3 (plugs into the old harness, but the mounting bracket is a tad different.)

I like it much more than I did the P2, which lasted 6 years and was used on 3 trailers. Seems more responsive when tweaked.

I had an 11year old p2 previously, and had trademasters in chilliwack install a p3 in my new tv the day before I picked up my escape in May. I’m very happy with it.

Hi Ralph
I had a P3 controller installed on the Highlander. My son in law Todd with the 74 Boler has a
P-3 on his Pathfinder. We like them. See you in September as the old song goes. Go Bucks

I went with a Prodigy wireless controller for my Escape 19 and Highlander combo and it works great. I had a P3 from my previous tow vehicle but wiring for it in the Toyota and less than ideal mounting locations led me to invest in the wireless.
