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.

Packaging arrived distorted and bound together with tape. I have not had an opportunity to test the device or to ascertain if there is any damage to the unit, but the shipping packaging was not designed to permit safe and secure shipping. A very bad start to my relationship with your company when you don't secure shipment on a $[XX]+ electronic product. You asked for this review - here it is.

This brake controller was easy to install and set up. The instructions we easy to follow and understand. Any questions are answered by their highly qualified customer support team. We feel a tremendous amount of comfort when towing.

This was easy to install and works great. I drove with the trailer just briefly before connecting this brake controller. What a huge difference. The fact that the head unit is now portable makes this very attractive. I wish I had this before since I just changed vehicles and had to buy a whole new brake controller again.


Comments
I have been using this now for just about a year. I have used it quite frequently with my travel trailer and it has been rock solid. I like how easy it is to adjust the braking force.
Damion - 07/21/2022


by:

Once you get the controller set for your trailer you can not tell the trailer is back there during braking. My old controller either slammed on the brakes or they did not work at all. It is nice to have on that works great. Only complaint is occasionally it loses Bluetooth connection so I just hit the manual button on the side and it reconnects. I would definitely buy this product again.




by:
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I had essentially no room around the driver area in my Jeep Grand Cherokee for the standard mounting of a brake controller, so I thought this would be a good solution.
Installation was easy. Our RV company mounted the power module on a transverse chassis beam, completely hidden from view. The remote paired quickly and easily. Once paired you simply plug it in and you're good to go. Easy to change boost. When not towing you can disconnect and stow the remote, so nothing remains in the cabin. Short of having a built-in brake controller, this is an excellent solution.


Comments
Still very pleased with this product. Continues to work well and easy to use.

The cab connection was loose in the box with the larger controller with no packing. The cab connection should have been in a plastic package by itself, the package was damaged, not sure if the controller is damaged or not.

Thank you for your review. I apologize for the state your package arrived in. Have you gotten the chance to test the item yet to see if it is in working order?
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/21/2022
Yes, I did, thank you. I have not driven the truck and trailer yet, however it did pair properly on Sunday.

I have a 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge and this product works very well. I returned the Curt Echo because it was very unstable and did not connect. And I purchased the Tekonsha Prodigy instead. I'm very pleased with the outcome.




by:

Great product! This the second Prodigy Controller I've bought....use on my travel trailer.

The sales rep was extremely helpful (and knowledgeable) about what I needed regarding a wireless brake controller. It took only 2 days to be delivered to my door. Great service and price.

I never used this item and returned it. I received my refund and I rate etrailer a 5 excellent for all the items I have purchased so far.




by:

Installed on my 2006 Lexus GX470, worked like a charm, hassle free and perfectly with my travel trailer. I would highly recommend this Brake controller.




by:

This is a great product. The installation was quick -- it took almost as long to unpack the box as it did to install. Directions were complete and easy to follow. I love that the remote controlling unit can store out of sight so this doesn't change the look of my vehicle's interior.

by:

Boss loved it. The whole fleet can now tow the trailer.




by:

Had it for about a year and have used it about a dozen times hauling my 33 foot camper trailer. I like the convenience of not having to wire something into my truck. works really well once you get it dialed in right. would recommend to anyone needing a brake controller but not wanting to go the hardwired route.




by:

I never give 5 stars to anything, because everything can be improved. This brake controller may seem expensive, but not when you consider you can install it yourself and not pay someone else a lot of money. Also, you can take it with you if and when you get a new vehicle. It works very well. etrailer.com shipped it fast and it got here faster than what the tracking said.

I have purchased several things from etrailer.com and their customer support has been very helpful and they are very competitive.




by:
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I received my order from etrailer.com within a few days which was great enough. Then during my installation of the product (etrailer had a great installation video as well) I discovered that a small component that contained some adhesive pads were damaged and I mentioned that to Courtney when she emailed and checked with me on the order. She was able to arrange for the manufacturer to resend that part free of charge to me. Thank you Courtney, you and etrailer got it going on! Great service.




by:

Dealership was going to charge me $1k for a wired one with installation. So this was a bargain in comparison.

I'm a non-handy person, and managed to get this installed, up and running in about 30 minutes (drilling holes into the hitch took most of that time). The remote paired on the first try. Have towed about 20k miles with it since then, including over Big Horn NF's ridiculous grades, and it has been perfect.




by:

Super easy to install and use on multiple vehicles. I won’t be bolting to my dash boards for a while.




by:

This device works as designed. I would highly recommend it for those who need a Bluetooth brake controller for your trailer. This is an excellent one to select.




by:

My RV came with the Tenoska Prodigy already installed, so I returned this unit to etrailer. They promptly gave me a refund.




by:

Good product, works very well.




by:

I purchased this unit for my motorhome and it will not work on anything over 20’ long I even contacted the manufacturer. And they worked with me on this for 3 months and finally they refunded me my money, so anyone owning a motorhome do not use this item, ment for pickup trucks etc.

Easy adjustment. Works with my Mercedes GLE 450

  • Does the Prodigy RF Brake Controlled have to be Paired Every Time the Trailer is Towed
    You should only have to pair the RF # TK94FR once and then it will be good to go after that. The only time when you may have to pair it again is if you do not tow the trailer for many months in a row. Or if you change tow vehicles. Otherwise it stays paired after the first time.

  • Will the Prodigy RF Brake Controller Work with a 2010 Volkswagen Touareg TDI
    Yes, the Prodigy RF Brake Controller, # TK94FR, can be used with your 2010 VW Touareg TDI. The RF is not fit guided on our website because it is a universal unit that does not require any vehicle specific wiring or adapters. In my opinion, the RF is actually the best brake controller to use on a Touareg because wiring in an in-cab controller can be quite involved. I would like to note that in the past, we have seen pairing problems with some European made vehicles with factory tow package...

  • Pairing the Prodigy RF Brake Controller with a 2013 Porsche Cayenne
    We have seen pairing problems with the Prodigy RF Brake Controller, # TK94FR, and certain European vehicles, including the Porsche Cayenne, but the good news is I have some solutions for you. The pairing problem that you have is due to a signal these vehicles send through the trailer plug for the lamp out sensor and to detect the trailer. You have two options to bypass this signal. The easiest option would be to place a piece of tape over the 5 o'clock pin in the trailer connector receptacle...

  • Troubleshooting Pairing Issue with Prodigy RF Brake Controller
    One solution to the problem you are having is to use another vehicle with a 7-way to pair the RF Brake Controller part # TK94FR. A vehicle with incandescent taillights would work better than one with LEDs. All you are doing is pairing the handheld portion of the controller to the unit installed on the trailer. Once you pair the two on a different vehicle the two would work together regardless of what vehicle and trailer they are installed on.

    If you plug the 7-way of the RF Brake Controller part # TK94FR into the 7-way on your 2015 Chevy Silverado the RF controller will be what operates the brakes of your trailer. If you wanted to bypass the RF you would need to unplug the 7-way from your trailer that is currently plugged into the RF and then run it to 7-way of your Silverado. The RF is a great controller. I would probably just use it when towing with your Silverado.

  • Can Vehicle with Hardwired Brake Controller be Used to Pair Prodigy RF Brake Controller
    Yes, you can use a tow vehicle with a hardwired brake controller to pair the Prodigy RF Brake Controller part # TK94FR. That same vehicle could be used to tow the trailer with the RF installed on it as well and the RF would be the active brake controller. If you wanted to use the hardwired controller you would need to bypass the RF on the trailer by unplugging the 7-way from the trailer to the RF and then running that 7-way straight to your tow vehicle.
