This is the dealer i bought the truck from, but they said it is a dealer install brake controller, When I asked how it got installed no one knows, they just said it is dealer added! I am going to ask that question.

I JUST had my MOPAR factory trailer brake controller installed by my dealer yesterday. Just over $300 parts/labor. Even if the trailer isn't connected it shows up in my EVIC with a pic of trailer with a line through it (GhostBusters style!) and says "no trailer" and whatever the current adjustment is (up to 10.0). I'm fortunate that my dealer is dialed-in on properly adding MOPAR stuff, they added on my tailgate rear view camera with no problem too...

Hey 300 bucks is a fair price for the oem install and computer recal. I just got quoted 450 bucks and hung the phone up lol. I don't like to taken nor do i have patients for incompotent dealers for over priced work.

I just purchased the factory brake controller for $140 and installed it myself in 10 minutes. I don't know why its that important to have it display in the EVIC. It works just fine without it. I just towed my new travel trailer home 280 miles.

I purchased the Express due to the fact that I liked the non chrome look. I will be adding a Class IV hitch, and factory controller. Good to hear some of these issues so I can watch them. I just want the dealer to fix the key off delay defaulting to 45sec...it gets real annoying listening to my truck playing music from inside the house. The dealer says they are waiting on a software revision from Chrysler to fix the problem.
