brake controller

I have a 2020 Vegas 24.1, and my dolly has electric brakes, on which I tow a 2017 Honda Civic. Please post recommendations on which type of brake controller I should get, proportional or timed-delay? I know the first is more expensive, but if it's worth it, then so be it.


Thanks in advance, and be safe out there! Enjoy!


Tony

I use an Intelli-Hitch for covering the braking chores for my trailer...

brake controller

I just bought a aluminum car hauler with electric brakes and debated the same questions. I purchased a proportional unit from Amazon.
Tekonsha 90250 Prodigy RF Electronic Brake Control

I chose this unit because it mounts the controller on the trailer and pairs via bluetooth to the hand held remote that senses your vehicle brakes to activate the trailer brakes. I plan to pull the trailer with multiple vehicles and will now only need to plug the remote into a cigarette outlet for it to work and won't have to tear into the vehicle wiring to add anything. A bit more expensive, absolutely but far less aggravation in my eyes now and in the future.

I bought it from the place where I bought my trailer. The Intelli-Hitch is basically a "smart" hot h that you plug into your receiver. It sort of makes the electronic brakes work like surge brakes.
You can Google them for more info.
But I like mine!

Intella-Hitch

Bob,
I'm curious about how the intella-hitch has worked for you. Can't seem to find any reviews.
I'm concerned about wear on the receiver hitch, do you greese it so that it will slide smoothly? Have you noticed any wear where it moves? How many miles have you used it?
Thanks in advance........
