    Power is sent from the controller to the magnet in the brake assembly. The magnet energizes and sticks to the drum which then actuates the brake shoes.

    Do I need a different assembly to plug into the back of my truck? I have one that has 4 prongs going horizontally.

    common on all new trucks is the '7 way RV' plug, the flat 4 wont work and is a poor connector anyway.

    Ok. Thanks. I use the flat 4. Well, it's the only one my trailer has. I probably have both on my truck, I just never needed the 7.

    The Tekonsha Prodigy is $114 + s/h at www.etrailers.com. If I'm not mistaken they will include the vehicle-specific adapter if your truck doesn't have the 7-way RV Plug.
