    I recently got myself a trailer and a Prodigy controller. My only question is the red wire, which they want you to tap to the "brake lights". Im assuming that tapping it to the fuse box would be ok? (under the stop/harzard fuse).

    In addition, the wiring kit has yet another red wire, which , I assume is also supposed to tap in, but yet seems rather unncessary.

    Nope. That would be a bad assumption. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif The fuse panel supplies power to the brake light circuit, so it's hot all the time. You need to tap into the wire that runs to the brake lights. The brake light switch is mounted just above the brake pedal. You should be able to tap in right there. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I've got a prodigy, but mine came with a plug that fit my Ford, so it was just a plug-and-play install. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    There's some really good brake wiring tech over at Pirate4x4.
