Thanks for the info. Looks like it has raving reviews. 5 stars!@DannyLLama For brake controller I went with the Tekonsha 90160. I installed it to the right of the steering wheel (in the JK), around knee height, facing up. That controller does not need to be mounted horizontally to work. This placement is the only place I could find to put it, and it seems to work OK, but it is hard to read the display while driving.
Do I have to install anything additional in the trailer in order to make it functional?
Or any other parts, electrical etc.. ? I'm mechanically challenged as you can see!
Side bar - what maintenance is required for these things long term? For example on the note of brakes, how often do pads need to be replaced?
