I am upgrading a Trillium Jubilee. One of the first things I did was to have 10 in brakes installed. I now have to wire my tug and install a brake controller. I am seeking advice on what to use and/or brands that others have used and/or could recommend.

Tekonsha Prodigy. Can't go wrong with one. I wired our Trail Mite for the Prodigy two years ago. No issues, no problems. We have a controller in our Tacoma and our Trooper.

We have a Prodigy also. It runs well.

Our towing vehicle (a Subaru Forester) was not prewired for towing, but our local hitch provider wired it up and installed the proper connectors for the trailer at a reasonable cost.

You will want to have a 7 blade connector, so that running lights, turn indicators, brake light, electric brake and trailer battery all are supplied.

I use the Tekonsha P3 and find it works very well.

Check out the prices here, especially now that our dollar is close to parity

They often have a shipping special of $5.00 to Canada.

I've been looking at that site for a couple of weeks now and the shipping for the brake controller and some wiring is $45. How often do they have a deal on shipping?

just ask them to re-check their shipping, I have found that if you got to the USPS web site you can find international shipping cheaper thaan what most people quote. The cheapest international shipping does not include a tracking number, but generally runs 8-10 dollars rather than 20-30 dollars.
