3. What Electric Brake Controller do I need?

 

A: Their are various makes and models on the market however Adventure 4x4 & Auto Electrics highly recommend an inertia based unit such as the Tekonsha P3 or Redarc Towpro as they are very smooth in their operation and easy to use.

The older time delay units should be avoided as they are very clunky and can cause unecessary brake lockups.
