Hitches & Brake Controllers...HELP!!
« on: September 25, 2006, 09:05:54 PM »
Just purchased a 2005 Glendale Titanium 32E37TS (GVWR 12,831), and will take delivery on the TV next week, a 2006 GMC 2500HD Duramax 6.6 diesel standard bed.  Two issues I could really use some help with.

1.  Hitches....The TV is a standard (short) bed, which would suggest a slider is called for.  However, with the design of the Titanium (cab-over) can I safely install a non-slider hitch?  If a slider is called for, any recommendations?  I read on the forum some pretty unfavorable entries regarding the PullRite SuperGlide....something to do with king pin compatability.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

2.  Brake Controllers...From what I can find throughout the forum, the Tekonsha Prodigy seems to be very highly recommended, and I suspect this will most likely be my final choice in purchase.  However, as I was reading through the documentation that came with the 5er, I found that the axles/hubs/brakes were supplied by "Dexter Axle".  In reading their literature on brake controllers, they tout what they refer to as a "state-of-the-art inertial controller called the Predator Series DX2".  Just wondering if anyone could comment on the Predator, or make any other recommendations.

Many Thanks,
Danny ???
