Dealer says the components required for a retrofit will not be available till march. I tow in 2 weeks. Here is what I will be getting:

I am banking on this being cheaper than the factory panel and module. Ray
If I can find the factory plugs I'll be using a Draw Tite 20273 wiring cable to wire my older Tekonsha. That cable is listed for 2011 to 2013 and sell for $20 locally to me.
I can't imaging the factory not installing the factory wiring when it has both connectors at the rear bumper, they must be somewhere.
It's cold and snow is on the ground right now so it's PITA looking but I don't really need to have trailer brakes until the spring so I have lots of time.
