Can the Tekonsha Prodigy RF # 90250 be Installed Without Drilling Into Trailer Frame


I plan to rent different trailers for camping. Is there a way to mount the unit on a trailer without drilling into the frame?

The Tekonsha Prodigy RF # 90250 needs to be secured onto the trailer frame so that it is within plus or minus 5 degrees level in the horizontal plane so that the inertia sensor can operate properly. Although you may be able to find a say to keep the unit stationary it was built and tested to be bolted on to the trailer so I can't really recommend doing otherwise.

If you are looking fo an easy way to transport a brake controller to various trailers without physically installing the unit on your tow vehicle then we do have another solution for you. The Curt Echo # C51180 is a wireless brake controller that is compatible with trailers that have up to 2 axles. You simply plug this unit into the 7-Way at the rear of your vehicle and then control the various settings with your phone via Bluetooth.

To use this brake controller you just need to download the app to your Apple iOS or Android OS device and then make sure that your 7-Way connector has power to the 12V pin in the 2 o'clock position (see attached photo).
