Fwiw I have a brand new controller, one that plugs right in to a Ford, paid ~$100. Would sell it for $50 + shipping. Will post more details when I get home.

Got an integrated controller that came with the Dodge truck. Will be trying it out for the first time this coming weekend.

No complaints so far !

We've used the Max Brake for over 4 years and wouldn't have another brand. No changing gain when we switch drivers or got from highway to city or visa versa. Di

Tekonsha P3 for me. What a difference over the cheap one we had before. Best money ever spent.

I used the P2 Tekonsha on my 2004 Ford f150 truck with my OFF-ROAD 14RT POPUP trailer. Worked like a champ. Easy to setup and being proportional I never had to deal with sliding my trailer tires on the payment...

Then when I upgraded to my now 2010 Ford F150 truck it came with the built-in brake controller. It too works great and was easy to setup for my OFF-ROAD 14RT POPUP. The new brake controller however has one feature that I really don't like and that being the integrated type is really tied into the truck computer system and monitors more things you can shake a stick at... The one item it monitors is the truck speedometer and when you are below 10MPH or so it disengages the brake controller actions when pushing down on the truck brake pedal. For me this is not ideal as when I pull up to a stop sign on an incline I sort of like the idea that when I am pushing down on the truck pedal I am also holding down the trailer brakes. I guess FORD has good reason for doing this...

Being OLD SCHOOL I always now reach down and engage the emergency slide brake lever to hold the trailer brakes on when sitting at stop sign...

No big deal just something else for this ole man to remember to do haha...
