The Tekonsha Towing Brake Control Prodigy supplies power to your tow vehicle's brakes proportionally. This means that your trailer brakes at the same time and with the same strength as your vehicle - even in reverse gear. If you have to slam on your truck's brakes, the trailer's brakes respond instantly, too. Therefore your vehicle's brakes aren't overworked from trying to stop the entire load, and they suffer less wear and tear extending the longevity of your brakes compared to time based controls. Aside from smoother, more efficient braking that results from proportional application of stopping power, the Prodigy P2 also has a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those times when you're towing heavier loads. That's when more braking power is needed to stop the trailer at the same time as the tow vehicle. The boost setting sends 13 or 25 percent more power (depending on which setting you choose) back to the trailer brakes, thus compensating for heavier loads. You can boost the power manually at the push of a button as well. The boost feature gets more power to the trailer brakes exactly when you need it most, and your fully loaded rig brakes smoothly and comfortably. This brake controller levels automatically as you drive, so there's no problem using it on steep hills or when towing through the mountains.
