Video Transcript for Review of Tekonsha Brake Controller Accessories - Replacement Remote for Prodigy RF - TK27FR

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. And we're going to take a quick look at the replacement remote for your Prodigy RF wireless brake controller.So maybe you lost this guy. It just got misplaced somewhere. You can't find it anymore. Or if you're going to be sharing the same trailer between several different vehicles and you don't want to have to keep swapping this controller out every time you change, you can get multiple of these guys so that you can have one in each vehicle or more than one controlling that same unit on the actual trailer itself.Now you might need to pair it every time you switch.

That's just something to keep in mind. It does come with a little quick reference card on the back of the controller. So that makes it pretty easy to remember how to do that. It's pretty simple to do, honestly.But this just, again, plugs into your vehicle's 12 volt outlet, so that cigarette lighter style outlet in the vehicle. And it lets you operate or control your brake controller to make sure that everything is working properly.So you'll have your manual override button on the side that does give you a adjustable pressure.

So if you're just pressing lightly on that, it gives you just a little bit of braking. If you press all the way down, it gives you all the braking force you have set up for this. Boost button at the top. Adjustment for the initial breaking on the side. And again, the instructions on how to set all of that in that little back card, there.Gives you a pretty good length of wire to make sure that this is readily at hand, but you don't have to worry about actually mounting it anywhere in your vehicle.

So that, of course, makes it really nice and compact for those vehicles that don't have a good spot for mounting up a brake controller.It is connected by Bluetooth. So you'll again, need to pair between the unit and the power module. The LED display will show you how much brake voltage is going out, the power output and any kind of diagnostics. So something happens that's going wrong, it has a little guide here to let you know what those mean. So you'll see if it's connected or not connected.

If there's a communication error, if the boost is on.And also if your hazards are on, it doesn't really work very well with that. Since the Prodigy works with the brake signal coming from your towing vehicle, whenever you have your hazards on, it'll just pulse the brakes. So that's something to keep in mind with that as well. It doesn't really work with those, but it will give you an error to remind you of that fact whenever you're towing.That's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the replacement remote for your Tekonsha Prodigy RF wireless brake controller. I hope this has been helpful in deciding if this is the right part for you. We do have a lot of accessories retelling and all kinds of stuff here at etrailer.com. So, check us out. Thanks for watching.

  • Can an Electric Brake Controller be Used on a 2011 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
    I spoke with my contact at Prodigy and he said that you should be able to install a Tekonsha P-3 Trailer Brake Controller - Proportional, part # 90195, onto your 2011 Highlander Hybrid. He said that according to his wiring diagrams, there is a blue wire behind the brake pedal that you will use as the brake switch wire. This will attach to the red wire on the harness of the # 90195. However, he recommended that you use a multimeter like the 7-Function Digital Multimeter, part # BTMT15,...

  • Prodigy RF Hand Held Unit Does Not Power On
    The plug that plugs into the 12 volt outlet in the vehicle has a small fuse in it. You will need to take apart the plug to get to the fuse. If that fuse is bad, that is the problem. You should be able to find a replacement at a local auto parts store. To check to see if it is the fuse before taking the plug apart, you can try plugging it into another vehicle. If you replace the fuse and it still does not work or if it does not work on another vehicle, replacement hand held units are...

  • Using Electric Trailer Brake Controller and Tuson Electronic Sway Control Simultaneously
    If you have a trailer that requires brakes and sway control it is wise to additionally use a brake controller as the electronic sway controller is not a brake controller so it won't apply brakes unless there is sway. When using the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # 335TSC-1000 the use of an aftermarket brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 is not only possible but necessary. If you are looking for a brake controller that does not require a separate...

  • Theft Deterrent Recommendation for Prodigy RF Brake Controller # TK94FR
    The Prodigy RF brake controller # TK94FR uses regular hex head bolts to secure it to a trailer though you could use different bolts if you wanted to.

And if someone wanted to try to buy a new handheld unit the cost is not as low as they might think, # TK27FR. They would have to know that though before attempting to steal...

    If you elect to go with the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Brake Controller, item # TK27FR, on your trailer, instead of installing a brake controller in the cab of your 2005 Toyota Sienna, you will not need all of the items and wiring in the Electronic Brake Controller Wiring Kit, # ETBC7.

    The difference in the installation of the Brake Controller 7 and 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7, when using it with the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Brake Controller, part # TK27FR, on your 2006 Volvo XC70 is that you will not need to connect the blue wire that is normally hardwired to the brake controller.

    For your 2007 BMW X3, the Tekonsha Prodigy RF, # TK94FR, would be a great choice because it does not involve taping into the vehicle wiring. Instead, this unit plugs into the 7-Way trailer connector and your trailer connector would then plug into the RF. It uses the power provided from the 7-Way to apply the electric trailer brakes. It has a built-in accelerometer that senses how hard or soft the vehicle is braking and applies the trailer brakes accordingly. The hand-held module that...
