Recommended Trailer Brake Controller For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid With Regenerative Braking

Question:

I am getting a Jeep Wrangler 4xe hybrid with a 3500 lb trailer weight limitation and a 350 lb hitch weight limitation. Do you have a recommendation for a brake controller for this combination. and how will it work with the regenerative braking on the Jeep?

Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195. This brake controller will give you proportional braking which automatically adjust braking force to your Flagstaff based on how hard or light the brakes are applied. A Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter # 3073-P will allow you to plug into the factory connector on your Wrangler that has the tow package.

When you apply the brakes on your Wrangler 4xe the computer will calculate how much of the braking force can be handled by the Regenerative Braking System and how much will be done by the hydraulic brakes. The Prodigy P3 brake controller will see the signal that the brakes were activated and using the internal inertia sensor calculate how much power to send to the trailer brakes. The lighter you brake the more the regenerative braking system will operate to regain power. You do have a Maximum Regenerative Brake button on the dash, that when pushed will begin using the regenerative braking to slow you after you release the accelerator pedal. This will allow you to get the maximum power recharge and will come in very handy on steep hills you travel down.
