Just wanted to give a big round of thanks to Ken99 for the .PDF instructions. I just finished installing this in my '09 1500, and had no trouble locating all the correct wires. Very simple installation, for something that's not supported from the factory. It looks so much better than the big honkin' Prodigy hanging out from the dash. I also like the fact that you can use essentially a clothespin to pin the trailer brakes on - makes loading/unloading equipment easier.

I haven't pulled a trailer with it yet, but I did hook it up, and got a value (I'm guessing a percentage?) displayed when I stepped on the brake - could also hear the electric brakes on the trailer engaging, so all's good there.

Curious that it won't display anything unless the headlights are on. Since it's only getting a +12V ignition feed, it must be reading the light status from the CAN bus. Oh well - lights on whenever pulling a trailer. I can live with that.
