Does anyone know if the Tekonsha Prodigy RF will work without additional wiring for the Ascent? Here is a link to the brake controller: Tekonsha - Trailer Brake Control - Proportional

I have an Ascent Touring coming soon with the trailer hitch already installed from the factory. We have been towing our trailer using our Outbacks which are both wired for the Prodigy RF so we only had to have one brake controller and a clean install on both vehicles. It is actually mounted on our trailer instead of in our vehicles. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have been running this for over a year. You need the standard plug trailer plug and that's it. It operates off the signal that activates your trailer brake lights. You plug it in when you hook up your trailer and the RF signals just sync up. The controller has the normal sensitivity dial and brake override button. It very simple to install and use thanks to the high tech guts of it lol!

Thank you so very much for this post! I've been searching for a brake controller that doesn't work from a phone app, and will not have to disfigure the dash. ETrailer said that the prodigy RF is "questionable" about whether it will work with the Ascent - ours is with the dealer installed tow package, 2021 Touring. The Tekonsha rep told me that as long as the Ascent had the 12v pin at the 1:00 position, all would be well. I've been having the devil of a time finding the 7 pin diagram for my Ascent. What I read from you, is that it will work. Now to establish whether my baby Airstream will work with the Prodigy RF!!
