    Can you point me in the direction of a controller that I could mount underseat or otherwise?

    That is the reese version of the drawtite controller I use and that I wrote up in the towing bible. That and the drawtite version have been discontinued, so when they are gone they are gone. so jump on it quickly if you are going to do it as the last time I was asked about and searched for these I came up with nothing.

    Regards,

    Adam

    Called Etrailer and that controller is in stock. Ordered mine for $85 shipped!

    Nice job on the towing bible, I read the whole thing.

    Thanks
