Guess I am the lonely outcast on this one. We have a Pull-Rite controller and, so far anyway, have found it to be great. It was already installed when we purchased the truck so cannot comment on installation, however I think regardless of which brand I would have a dealer install it just to be sure.
By the way it has been great on a couple of panic stops thanks to idiots deciding to slam their brakes and turn, and yes I was probably too close but you try driving on I-4 in Orlando !

Just bought my second Jordan Ultima 2020. Why two? I refuse to let my 2001 Silverado go without that controller. I know whoever buys it will be using the best electric brake controller made.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. One of the best features of the Jordan is that it reads the amperage going to the brakes on its front panel. You can instantly tell if you've got good connections and good magnets. If you've never had electric trailer brake problems you haven't been towing very long.

I agree with George, as a first time 5er driver, though I've pulled some mighty heavy utility/equipment trailers, the Jordan has the edge in several departments (IMO);
1. always operates as you expect, forward, back, uphill/downhill, and at any speed/rate of decelleration. Thats because it activates in direct proportion to your own brake pedal action, not a derative of your action (Prodigy).
2. direct, actual current readout.
3. continuity lite
4. Simple install, location-insensitive.
Only downside is a couple extra minutes at install to clamp a wire to the brake pedal arm.
For me, Jordan is complete peace or mind, never a concern no matter the driving situation.
