    • Remote control lets you operate trailer-mounted power module from cab of any vehicle
  • Automatic-leveling ability - internal sensor detects deceleration even if controller is not mounted flat
    • Position within ± 5 degrees of level in the horizontal plane
  • 3 Boost levels let you adjust initial braking power and aggressiveness
  • Continuous diagnostic check alerts you to any potential problems
  • Integrated safeguards protect your vehicle and trailer
    • Minimizes drain on car battery when not in use
    • Prevents trailer brakes from overheating by reducing power output to them during prolonged stops
  • Digital display on remote is easy to read
  • Manual override button is built into remote
  • No hardwiring necessary for installation
    • 7-Pole connector (sold separately) on trailer plugs into 7-way socket on rear of power module
    • Wire lead on power module plugs into tow vehicle's 7-way connector
      • Connector on your vehicle must have an active 12V (hot) lead
    • Remote control plugs into standard 12V accessory outlet in cab
  • Compatible with tow vehicles that have multiplex wiring systems


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with up to 3 axles (6 brake assemblies)
  • Power module dimensions: 10-3/4" long x 4-3/8" wide x 4" tall
  • 7-Way cord length: 8'
  • Measurement of horizontal mounting holes from center to center: 9-7/8"
  • Measurement of vertical mounting holes from center to center: 2"
  • Frequency: 3.2 GHz
  • Mounting: above or on the side of your trailer's frame rail, within ± 5 degrees of level in the horizontal plane
  • Warranty
    • Power module: 15-year limited
    • Power lead: 1-year limited
    • Remote: 5-year limited


Notes:

  • Vehicles with certain late model European tow packages may require the use of a tester (TR20117 - sold separately) or another truck or SUV to pair the receiver and transmitter.
  • The Prodigy RF cannot be submerged in water.
  • The Prodigy RF is not compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes.
  • The Prodigy RF cannot distinguish between hazard lights and brake lights. If you turn on your vehicle's hazard lights while towing with this controller, your trailer brakes will pulse.


Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner. Just set the initial power level, select a boost setting, and you're good to go.


As long as the Prodigy RF controller is mounted correctly, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Wireless Bluetooth Transmission for Portability

The Prodigy RF is perfect for anyone who has multiple tow vehicles. There's no hardwiring necessary. Just plug the 7-way lead on the control module into your vehicle's 7-way connector and plug the 7-way on your trailer into the port at the rear of the RF so that the braking signal can be transmitted from your vehicle to your trailer. Then plug the remote into your vehicle's standard 12-volt accessory outlet and use it to control the module wirelessly.


Because you don't have to wire the Prodigy RF to your vehicle, the trailer that you mount the module to can be easily shared among multiple tow vehicles. As long as your vehicle has a 7-way connector, you can use the Prodigy RF. This system is also compatible with vehicles that have multiplex wiring systems precisely because it does not wire into your vehicle.


Power Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

Aside from smoother, more efficient braking, Tekonsha's Prodigy RF brake controller also offers a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those times when you're towing heavy loads. You can switch boost levels so that the power output to your trailer brakes automatically starts out at either 13 percent or 25 percent of the predetermined power setting.


So, if you boost the initial power so that your trailer brakes activate with 25 percent of the overall intensity at the start, the brakes will reach maximum braking faster. This is particularly beneficial if you are towing a heavy load because the intensity required to stop that load may be far greater than that needed to halt your vehicle. Therefore, sending out more initial power to the trailer brakes - and causing them to reach maximum braking faster - allows you to better control the trailer so that it doesn't push your tow vehicle before coming to a complete stop.


If your trailer weighs less than your tow vehicle, no boost is needed. But if you wish to set the boost so that your trailer leads the braking of your towing setup, you can select level B1. The following table gives an indication of when you might use the different boost levels and the power increases that they offer.


Approximate Gross Trailer WeightBoost LevelIncrease in Initial Power Output
Less than tow vehicle GVWB113%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B213% or 25%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B325%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB325%

Both B2 and B3 offer a 25-percent boost in initial power. But the braking curve for B3 is more aggressive than that of B2. This means that, even though you will start out with the same intensity when using these boost levels, you will get an overall more aggressive braking experience with the higher level. So if you use B3, you will reach maximum braking sooner than if you use B2.


Safety Features

The Prodigy RF offers advanced safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. In addition to basic troubleshooting, this controller works to prevent problems before they begin. When the Prodigy RF is not in use, it will be in power-saving mode. If there has been no activity for 2 hours, then the system will go into sleep mode. Both of these modes are designed to drop the power draw, minimizing drain on your vehicle's battery.


When you stop at red lights, or any time that your truck and trailer are at a standstill with the brakes applied for more than 5 seconds, the Prodigy's "hold" feature will activate. When this happens, the power output to your trailer's brakes will be reduced to just 25 percent of the preset power setting so that the brakes will not overheat.


If ever there is a time that you need to brake your trailer separately from your tow vehicle - when traveling down a steep incline, for example - the manual override button is easily accessible on the remote control. Pushing this button engages the brakes on your trailer with full power. In addition, when you activate this override, the brake lights on your trailer will illuminate, properly warning those behind you of the braking action of your rig.


In addition to all of those safety features listed above, the RF offers diagnostics such as:

  • Open ground
  • Overload
  • Output short
  • Power loss
  • No trailer connection

Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the Prodigy RF ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Simply mount the power module, which contains the inertia sensor, on your trailer tongue or frame as indicated. Some drilling may be required.


Correct Prodigy RF mounting

Note: The Prodigy RF must be mounted within ± 5 degrees of level on the horizontal plane and must be lined up so that the power cable extends toward the tow vehicle for the internal sensor to function properly.


Once the power module is mounted on your trailer and connected to your vehicle, simply sync up the handheld remote to the module as per the included instructions. Then plug the remote into any 12-volt auxiliary outlet in your tow vehicle for power.


Installation Accessories

See etrailer.com's exclusive 7- and 4-way brake-control installation kit (ETBC7 - sold separately) if you don't already have a 7-way plug at the back of your vehicle.

Ask the Experts about this Tekonsha Trailer Brake Controller

  • Curt Echo Controller
    It sounds like there might be some pairing issues caused by your phone's Bluetooth connection. I would start by making sure that the Bluetooth connection on your phone is turned off and that the Curt Echo # C51180 hasn't accidentally paired with your phone; if it has, you'll want to unpair/disconnect it using the phone. You may also want to delete the app and re-download it to see if that helps. With that said, you are able to use the # ETBC7L you've previously installed with the Tekonsha...

  • Will the Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller Work On a 2016 Volvo XC90
    The Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller part # C51180 is what I recommend for a 2016 Volvo XC90. In regards to sync/setup, this is super easy and only needs to be done once per trailer. Once synced, it simply plugs in and you are ready to go. There should not be any issues with the factory trailer lighting diagnostic checks. In regards to LED, this won't be a problem at all. The Curt Echo simply acts as a pass through for the trailer lights so there would be no issues associated...
