Trailer Brake controller

I have a '12 WK2 and am buying a travel trailer that weights about 2800 lbs & has electric brakes. I have the factory towing package with the wiring harness & class IV receiver.

1) What brake controller would you suggest and where does it mount ?
2) I would assume the factory wiring harness terminates somewhere in the front dash area. Where is it and what is the wiring color code ?

Thank you for the advice.

Re: Trailer Brake controller

OK have a good handle on the controller but where does the harness come out and what does it look like ? I assume it has all of the wires for a brake controller.

Re: Trailer Brake controller

The harness is up underneath the parking brake area. I can't remember if mine was taped up there or something but I think it was kinda stuck to the side of larger module. I bought a P3 and cable that is all set up with a quick connect. Took longer to find the connecter than get everything else set-up.
