To Gabrieldy, Very nice! I looked at that area, but decided that my old eyes wouldn't be able to see the display as well, so I opted for my raised installation as explained in my prior post.

By the way, I just towed a 2007 25ft Airstream for two weeks and the truck and the P3 performed flawlessly. - DodgerD (2009 Hemi, w/ 3.55gears & 20"wheels - slightly over-weight, but easily capable. Max Trailer Weight for this config is 6400lbs, trailer loaded weight is 7300lbs, I just kept it light.)

And, for those who are curious, you can order the correct Dodge to P3 clip-in interface harness when you order the P3. I purchased both on Amazon.

DodgerD thanks for the feedback. You should post up a pic if you have one. Might help give others some ideas. BTW I ordered mine from e-trailer b/c the Dodge harness was included.

Good to hear how well it tows. I have the same gear/wheel setup but will only be towing my Roush on a flat trailer (maybe 5000 lbs for both).

Default the white clips

Here's a newbie question for ya.... take out the screws, then how do you remove the white plastic clips (that hold on the panels) without wrecking them?

Thanks for the pictures of the screw locations....ready to tackle this as soon as I get the clips figured out.

After removing the 2 screws you should just be able to pull the panel towards the seat.

Sounds weird. I would try to unplug it and call them tomorrow. I haven't towed anything since installing mine so the display always shows the two dots which indicate that is has power and no trailer is attached.

Another thought...did you get the Dodge specific wiring harness with it that is plug and play or did you try to wire it up? I'll break out the troubleshooting section from my manual in the meantime.

That might be the problem. My part number was 90185-3020P.
