    I got one of these from TruckStuffDirect.com a year or so ago. I ordered it with the plugin adapter so it was really just as simple as plug and play. It works extremely well and is easy to read, understand and adjust for various trailers. My current trailer is 16′ enclosed and loaded weighs close to 5000 pounds. With the up and down arrow buttons I can easily adjust the amount of current going to the electric brakes on my trailer. It also provides a great automatic diagnostic when you first hook up your trailer to let you know if all is ok or there is a problem with the connection. Love it!
