    Hello All,

    I am just about to take delivery of my new tow vehicle. A 2018 Toyota Tacoma! My RV Dealer said when I bought the trailer that I needed a brake controller to be installed on my tow vehicle.

    Are there any recommendations on which one to buy? Thanks!

    Hi there:

    I don't want to sound as if your post isn't welcome but you probably would get a broader range of responses if you posted it on a "general purpose" RV forum. The forum here is primarily read by people who come to this website because its focus is RV parks. You will get a lot more answers to your question if you post it on a larger, multi-topic forum such as the one at http://www.irv2.com/forums/

    Hi Paul & Susan

    I have been using the prodigy electronic bake control on my 2007 Tacoma since I bought the truck new. I'm going to guess your Tacoma has the towing package which should include all the towing wiring. I believe there is newer versions of the controller that is now on the market. In the 10 yrs of towing with my 07 Tacoma I haven't had any issues with the controller.
