Default Where to buy a Tekonsha brake controller?

I'm looking to buy a brake controller soon and I've decided to get either a Tekonsha P3 or Prodigy but I'm not sure where to buy it from. Does anyone know of a reputable dealer that I can purchase from?

Prodigy is great but the other tekonsha controllers are shit. Prodigy is nice but I always used the drawtite 5500. Its half the price of the prodigy. If your in ottawa try Farm and fleet or grand sport center in morris or any RV trailer place should have them.

The P3 works great. I've had one for a few years now and never had a problem.

Cool, that's great to hear. Did you just wire the four factory wires into the plug supplied with the P3 or is there a wiring harness available? I couldn't find one for an 07' TBSS. Also, do you have any pics of where you mounted yours?

Thanks,
Darren

No harness, just taped wires under the dash, driver side kick plate, for the brake controller.

Mount it on the lower panel left side where you can reach it and manually slam on the trailer brakes while holding the wheel with your right hand...
