Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ram 1500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Ram 1500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Proportional Trailer Brake Controller for one to four axles, part number 90885. Now, to help us in our installation, we're going to be using the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adaptor for trailer brake controllers, part number 3023-P.Here's our Prodigy P2 installed and what it looks like. Now, our Prodigy P2 is a proportional brake controller, which means it's going to apply the brakes in the same intensity at the same time that it senses our vehicle slowing down. That's because it has an internal inertia sensor that's going to detect the deceleration of our vehicle. Opposed to time delay brake controllers, which are just going to have a slight time delay, and they're going to slowly ramp up the power going to your brakes until it reaches the maximum.Now, the one thing that I really like about the Prodigy P2 is that since it is proportional, if we're at a stoplight, we don't want to brake to the maximum power because we're not moving. We don't need that much power going to our brakes.

The reason you're going to want a brake controller is if you have electric brakes on your trailer. You need to have a way to operate them and this brake controller here gives you that ability at a very cost effective price.What sets this brake controller apart from others on the market is that this is a proportional brake controller which activates immediately and gives you smooth and equal stops as opposed to time delay controllers, which there is no even braking. It's either on or off depending on how much power you have set to your brakes through the controller.
