Installation of Brake Controller in Vehicle with CB Radio on a 2004 Toyota Tundra

Question:

The instructions direct that the controller not be installed near a CB, how far away from the CB does the controller have to be so it doesn’t interfere with the brake controller? I will be installing the controller in a 2004 tundra double cab and RV, I already have the CB installed in both by the drivers right knee.

Expert Reply:

Most people mount a brake controller by the drivers right knee or higher. You will need your brake controller mounted within your reach and 12 to 18 inches away from the CB radio, so I suggest mounting it on the left side of your steering column.

If your vehicle came with a tow package, I would suggest the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Proportional Brake Controller, and the Toyota vehicle specific wiring harness # 3040-P.
