I'm not sure you're aware that the prodigy can be mounted up to a 70 angle. Not quite point straight up toward the stars, but pretty darn close.
Here are some pictures of my Prodigy installation in our 2003 Honda Odyssey LX.

Hi Phil; I installed my own, my current vehicle had the HD towing package and a plug in port under the dash, just had to wire the adapter to the controller and plug it in. The rest of the 7 pin wiring was installed at the factory.

One shortcoming of the factory wiring is that the 12v recharge line to the trailer is always live, so I am going to have to find a way to wire a relay into it so that I don't drain the tow vehicle battery if the engine isn't running.

With my previous unit I had my local RV shop install the original, but I just rewired it myself into succsessive vehicles when I changed over. Also moved the external rad cooler between a series of vehicles.

There are a few good RV shops out your way that should be able to do the hook up of the controller and 7 blade wiring quite successfully. I forget the name but one of the places I am thinking of is just north of the 403, west of Hamilton and the QEW loop (Maybe Rushton? at Guelph line?)

Charlie

The smoothest controller I've ever owned was the kind that spliced into the hydraulic line at the master cylinder. I still have it but don't believe they would work on the split systems of cars newer than about 1975.

The controller than emulates it is called a "Jordan". I don't have one yet, but a friend of mine does and it is excellent. They have a web site.
