    I have 1 2010 crew max limited and want to start towing a 24' car hauler with a 1975 Caprice Classic Convertible and need to know what type of trailer brake controller to use.

    I bought this on 1/12/14 and have added a code alarm remote start, an Alpine head unit with Nav and a backup camera.
    What is the difference between the tekonsha p2 and p3? Local trailer shop agreed with tekonsha but he said P2. Said it was the same chip and functionality of the 3 but doesn't do electric/hydraulic. Anything else different, is the p3 worth the extra 20 or so bucks?

    If you ever have to pull a trailer that's elec/hydr you will wish you had spent the extra $20. I say go ahead and splurge. :thumbsup:

    I researched it, but I think that was the only difference. I went with the p3 just in case.
