Recommended Brake Controller for 2010 Toyota Tundra Towing 7000 lb Travel Trailer


Which brake controller would you recommend for a 2010 toyota tundra, pulling a travel trailer 7000 lbs.


Expert Reply:

Brake Controllers are not vehicle specific, so just about any controller would work for you. This being said, I would recommend you go with a proportional type brake controller. A proportional controller features an internal sensor that can determine how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking. The controller will then send the appropriate amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so that the trailer and tow vehicle stop at the same rate. This makes for a safer stopping action, as well as causing less wear and tear on both braking systems.

Of the proportional controllers we offer, you cannot go wrong with the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. This controller is one of our best sellers and is very easy to install and operate. We also offer the Brake Controller wiring adapter, which will allow the controller to plug into the connector under the dash located by the emergency brake pedal.

The correct vehicle specific adapter for your 2010 Tundra is the # 3040-P.

If your Tundra is equipped with the 4-pole connector that controls lighting functions only, you will need the Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. The kit contains everything necessary for installing your controller, including the 7-way trailer connector.
