He hasn't been back since he posted that question.

But installing an ITBC in an '09 isn't all that hard

I installed the tekonsha p3 brake controller, found this video on youtube and it lists all the parts required for a super clean install, very satisfied with the end!

That is a nice install and the p3 is a straight forward hookup. I might need to look into trying it. Thanks for posting.

Got the tekonsha on ebay, it came with the oem factory connector so it was plug and play, bought thr bezel at my local dealer, i think it was like$10 or so, overall an easy install with a factory look. The tekonsha lets you change the backlight color to match the factory green color!

sorry I haven't been on in awhile. I was finally able to tow my camper & try out the controller. As I stated, it was working in my driveway but when I towed the camper, it didn't work. All the lights seemed to work fine until I was actually moving. I ended up hooking up a different controller temporarily so we could go camping and haven't messed with it since. The link above by Sudsy looks like the best option I've seen so far.
