Trailer hitch light activation problem.

Ok here's the run down, my hitch install was a while back and the dealer never activated the lights when they said they did, and I tossed the paperwork long ago.. Well it seems there's a unique code to enter with the scan to identify the vin as now having a hitch.. I do not have this code.
Questions are..

Is there a universal code? Seems like there'd be a simple fix as the hitches are the same throughout the years, maybe '14 n up but 11-13, Should be easy?
Can any code from one hitch be used multiple times, pull it off another hitch in inventory, mine be activated and that hitch still be sold?
Am I SOL and do I own a brick. I am sure the dealer will fix the issue but I leave for 6 weeks in the woods next Monday and would like to pull my trailer.

Please ask away for anything I'm forgetting. Also please this is not a thread for what went wrong or my dealer should do this or that. They are "investigating" the issue with Jeep, but I only discovered this BS yesterday and plan to leave on Mon. So a solution is the aim. I'll go so far as to make a small donation to the winners favorite charity, pretty small cause I'm broke, or I'll buy a sixer, or detail your Jeep if your local, send good vibes, almost anything! I'm pissed but more in need of a fix.

Thank you for any and all help. This is wacky.
