We recently bought a 2009 Silverado with the towing package including the integrated brake controller. I am finding that this controller does not seem to work as well as after market brake controllers I have had. i have asked several mechanics if they have had any feedback but none have. I am just not comfortable with this controller and am thinking about replacing it with an aftermarket one but wonder if maybe this one is defective. Has anyone else had experience with them?
I have an 2009 2500HD with the factory brake controller. No issues through 29,000 miles of which about 8,000 were with the Cruiser hooked up. From what I have read the factory controllers are "supposed" to be much better than the after market type. You know what is said of opinions.

I have a 2008 Silverado and the integrated controller works just as good as the Prodigy that was in my old truck. Smooth braking, easy to adjust. Have you had GM actually check it out? What are the issues you are having?
I have found the one in my '08 applies full braking too early and I've had to adjust it down to 3.5 (compared to 6.5 on my P2 on old truck) to get the feel that I like. I haven't had to use it in a panic situation so I'm not sure how it will actually react under really hard braking.
