I need to get an electric brake controller for my Suburban. I haven't bought my trailer yet, but for now I use my mechanics' 18' open trailer. I've heard some can be more difficult to modulate than others.

Anyone use the Hidden Hitch brand? Saw them on JC Whitney.

I have the same brand as Wade. Pull three different trailers (not at the same time
) with the same tow vehicle. I agree with Wade - very smooth braking. I have to tweak the gain when switching trailers; but then it's set and forget. I set it so the tow vehicle and trailer brake themselves - can't even feel it back there. GM even gives you the pigtail and fuse to plug it right into the fuse block. Also has the holes pre-drilled under the dash to mount it. It picks up the brake light signal so that the trailer brakes are only applied when the tow vehicle brakes are applied.

BTW: I think I have a spare GM pigtail at home if somebody has a late model GM truck and needs it.

I have the same as Turkey master and Wade. Works very well and as pointed out is easily adjusted for any of my 4 different trailers.
Hope this helps,
Joe

I have the Tekonsha "Prodigy" model. I think all the Tkonsha models are pretty much top of the line.

Well the the heck...one more for Tekonsha...but I have the Prodigy like tyrefryer. Came with the correct GM plug that plugged right into the fuse panel.

Digital is the only way to go......Draw-Tite makes and markets the Activator II Brake Controller....$89.95.....Spend the money and do it right the first time.

Tekonsha Envoy - good, linear braking. Have been using it to tow our kart-racing trailer.
