Mounting your brake controller???

I usually mount my contoller in the middle under the dash. But in this truck has a center console. Could you please give some ideas where you mounted your brake controller. Thanks

Tekonsha Prodigy velcroed to the dash (using the pocket). Didn't stick well, though.

Replacement Tekonsha P3 below the dash using an existing dash bolt:

If you have a lesser controller invest in one of these!

The bottom of my dash looks different from the pix above and that is my problem. Mine is not flat like those.

See the ideas in this previous thread

I posted pics of my mounting in that previos thread. We've used it a few times now and I'm quite happy with the location and visibility when towing.

I originallly mounted mine in the same spot in both my explorer and my expedition, but before my cross country drive towing a 7K trailer, I decided to move it to the little tray under the stereo. Boy am I glad I did!!! I was on a road that was 55mph, but had stoplights every couple of miles. The roads were wet, and I was coming down a hill when the light turned yellow!! I was maybe 50 yards away, too far to push through the light, but close enough for me to worry. I ended up using the "chicken" switch on the controller and a my truck brakes, not knowing how the anti-lock brakes take a trailer into consideration. If you had to do that with the controller mounted down at the bottom left, it would not be safe or practical, nor convenient for a quick response. If the inconvenience of losing an inch off the pretty much unusable tray saves you from a jack knife or hitting another vehicle, thats well worth it in my opinion. I didn't fully slide the lever, just to about 60% where I could feel the trailer brakes significantly more than the truck brakes. Better to let the trailer slide than to have it start pushing the truck out of control.
