    Does anybody know where the harness/connector is to hook up a trailer brake controller inside the truck? I've got a 2002 2500 with the trailering package.

    Any help would be great THANKS!:confused:

    Mine was in my glove box,along with a 7-to 4 pin adapter.there was a 4 pin connector,that plugged in under the dash right next to the parking brake assy. It was easy to hook up.

    John is right. I just installed a controller in a Dodge and the harness is right at the parking brake assembly.

    Be careful when wiring it up.The colors on the Dodge harness aren't the same as the ones on the brake controller,read the instructions,and double check before plugging it in.

    If you haven't bought your controller yet, I'd recommend you look at the Jordan unit. It has a cable that attaches to the brake pedal that allows proportional braking to the trailer. Works great!
