    First Name:
    I have an 04 3.4 auto. It came with a hitch and the green fan and a 4 pin connector. 5000# rating. I want to add a brake controller. I have added the 7 pin connector, just need to run the wires back for the controller and constant 12v.

    I would like to see where you guy's mount a brake controller and what kind you have, timed or momentum. Pics would be great. I saw in the towing bible that the Activator III was recommended.

    Also what wire do I need to find to trigger the controller?

    I want to get a small camper. Was looking at a Jayco 23B. They are about 4000# empty. Does anyone tow something similar? It sounds a little heavy. I may end up settling on a 19' one. Really like the floor plan on the 23B though. Like this. http://www.rvtrader.com/listing/2004-Jayco-Jay-Feather-EXP-23-B-102337665 Maybe I'll start another thread asking what you guy's tow with your 1st gens.
