Differences and Similarities Between the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 and the P-3 Brake Controllers

Question:

Im looking at either the P3 or the Prodigy P2. The major differences I see are 3 axis accelerometer in the P2 vs 1 axis in the P3. Looks like that would essentially eliminate alignment issues. The other difference seems to be the display capability and fault detection. Am I missing something here?

Actually, the P3 now has the upgraded axis accelerometer like the P2. The Tekonsha P-3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195, will work with both electric over hydraulic brakes on the trailer as well as electric brakes. It has a toggle switch that allows the user to switch between the two systems. I have included a link to the installation details for the P3 below.

The P2, # 90885, will also work with both electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brake systems but it does not have a toggle switch. It is more of an entry level brake controller; easy to use, easy to mount, and it works well. That is probably why it is one of our most popular and highest rated brake controllers. I have also included a link to the installation details for the P2 below.
