Can you unplug a prodigy brake controler and replug it back in when you want to use it again

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

It in my gmc 2010 p/u truck

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 RV?

I use the p/u to tow a 2010 25 foot komfort trailer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

The prodigy brake controller is in my p/u. i don't like the location so can i unplug it and replug it in when i need it without damaging the brake controller
