    Hi

    I have 09 Sport DCLB with towing package and I'm installing a brake controller.

    If it's clipped in to the harness, is it automatically grounded?

    If not, where' under the dash do I ground the thing?

    Any advice would be great. I'm practically incompetent with electrics. :)

    anywhere under the dash(so long as its metal) you can ground it too

    when you take the dash apart you will see some grounds there

    Thanks. I just undid one of the bolts holding a clamp to the body, installed it on that, and redid the bolt.

    Hopefully that will work! I pick up my new camper next weekend :)
