Brake Controller

Hi,

   I have a 97 F-150, V6, 5speed, supercab, short box, with LS rear-end.  We are planning on purchasing a landcaping trailer (single axle, approx 3500 pounds loaded).

   The class III reciever was just installed a few days ago, and now we are thinking of adding brake's to the trailer.  The question is, which brake controller is a good one.  After talking to that "truck accessory" shop, they suggested the draw-tie activator II unit.  Is this a good unit? does anybody have a suggestion for a better unit?  are there any controllers out there that can "autosense" how much load you have in the trailer and adjust the braking power accordingly or are all of them adjusted manually?

 As for the brake controller, is there a common place where it is mounted in the truck?  I know it has to somewhere where the driver can easily reach it, but have yet to find a good place (i'm 5' 6"... so have short hands)

 The truck right now has the factory 4 wire plug for the trailer.  would it be hard to upgrade this to the 7 plug setup needed for electric brakes?  is the wireing already there and only the head has to be changed?

 As for my limited slip rear-differential.  Does anybody know what the gearing is on it.. is it 3.55 or 3.73?


Thanks in advance for your help.
Please send replies to either the list or jon_lam81 hotmail.com

Jonathan.
