Brake Controller

Brake Controller,

Hello out there I have a 2007 Rav4 V6.
Has anyone installed a brake controller? If so what I could use is a little feedback on the installation. I would like to know where to grab wires from, best place to mount and brand name. I will be towing a tent trailer.
Thank you

Kind Regards
Oadago66

There's lots of good information in the post from RTexasF. The Tekonsha P2 or P3 contoller is among the best. You may wish to consider adding a 10 Guage wire for a trailer battery charging line while you install your brake controller. I had done this on my Highlander and found that it is a great help to be able to charge your battery while in transit. There is a wealth of information on trailer wiring and all things related to pop up campers on the pop up explorer website.

Good luck and happy camping!
