Default Aftermarket Electric Brake Controllers - Just FYI

I received this email today from my local trailer company regarding the use of aftermarket electric brake controllers on our 2013 trucks.

"The electrical system on the 2013 Ram trucks has changed. Though the brake control connecter is the same as the 2010-2012, the wire functions have changed. The terminal that used to be the stop light signal now has battery voltage, whenever the ignition is in the run position. According to Dodge, it is not possible to install an aftermarket electric trailer brake control into these trucks. Dodge says, that “the 2013 Ram has “Powernet” and utilizes multiplex wiring that is different from any previous designs, therefore your aftermarket trailer brake control is not compatible.”
At this time, the only aftermarket brake control that can be used on a 2013 Ram truck, is the Tekonsha 90250 Prodigy RF. As soon as more information is available, a revision to this technical bulletin will be sent out."

Im not 100% certain if this information is written in stone, I just wanted to pass the word for anyone currently looking to do this.
