Trailer Brake Controller Problems

Trailer Brake Controller Problems

I had a Tekonsha Prodigy RF brake controller installed on my travel trailer and am having problems with it. The remote (in the car) will not pair when the trailer-side unit is plugged into the MX. The behavior is like the trailer-side unit is not getting power. It does pair when the unit is plugged into a car battery, so the problem seems to be that the Tesla is not providing a high enough voltage. Or perhaps the car isn't keeping the 12v line continuously on. Any ideas? I'll investigate further tomorrow (check voltage, etc.).

Probably Tesla is not the best choice for towing) But anyway, keep us(tesla users) posted so that we know what to expect. Because me and my fiancee are planning to get a small teardrop trailer, I believe that Tesla could handle it)
We are picking from 12 best TTs, any suggestions? Here's the link - https://www.crowsurvival.com/teardrop-trailers/
