Default 4 pole to 5 pole trailer wire adapter

This question may belong more in the wiring thread, but I am really looking for general advice and experience on the matter and it is a towing matter for most boat owners:

Anyone here have any experience with the 4 pole to 5 pole adapters for trailers with the hydraulic break reverse lockout?

I need to get something going for my new 13 Laramie. My much older truck, I did not bother hooking up the 5th pole and let it hang past when plugged in, but the new Rams have that plastic casing around the hook up that will not allow me to do that.

I am curious if anyone has any recommendations for what they bought for hooking their inline 5 to the inline 4 connection for those that have em and where and how did you run the 5th wire to connect to the reverse light wire? Could you get it through the wire housing on the bumper somehow or did you run it down and underneath (which I would rather not do)?

I would buy a RV style plug and wire it custom so you can use that plug and the reverse light that is already in that plug.
