How do you like your little wilson??I've owned a Uniden PRO510XL for several years now, and I just installed it in my truck with a new "Little Wil" Wilson antenna.
I don't have a brake controller yet, but plan on installing one in the future. How close to the radio is too close??Just remember not to place your CB or its antenna wire anywhere near your trailer brake controller. Bad things happen when those two devices are close to each other.
I also belong to a forum for travel trailer owners, and they had a thread on what happens when you place the CB and the Brake Controller too close to each other. Basically, the RF energy from the CB will mess with the brake controller, activating it every time you are transmitting. I'm still not sure if this applies only to certain models or types of brake controllers, but the safe bet is to keep them apart from each other. Both items are typically mounted low under the dash, but if you want to have both then I suggest possibly the CB in the middle of the truck and the brake controller next to the driver's door, or one under the dash, and other in an overhead spot. Just remember to keep the CB antenna wire away from any wiring for the brake controller.I don't have a brake controller yet, but plan on installing one in the future.
