Make sure you buy the appropriate wireing harness adapter for your vehicle. With it, you simply plug one end into the controller and the other into your receptacle on your vehicle wiring harness. This unit is simple to adjust and ooperate and while there may be better units out there, the difference of having this unit and not having a unit installed at all is so tremendous, I feel the value is significant. Before when hauling my utility trailor with perhaps 3 tons on it, I would have to drive slow and be very cautious, trying to anticipate traffic and react well in advance. In a panic stop the trucks brakes struggled trying to slow the momentum of the trailor and I felt my stops were long. With the controller, I can adjust it so that the trailor brakes actually help slow the truck. It is a much more relaxed feeling to drive with a load now. I don't worry about my ability to stop.

This brake controller is very jerky, it's either on 100% of the time or not at all. There is no gradual pressure to the stopping, It accually over heated my brakes just testing it going around the block.
