Ordered the parts separately and installed in under 15 minutes.

Had the computer flashed today...the EVIC shows the trailer brake and all is well !!!

For those adding this upgrade, so you know...the instructions call for a four digit pin from the parts department. The parts guy asked for the last 8 of my vin and gave me the 4 digits.....the flash was done in under 10 minutes.

So my wife tells me my package has arrived.

I have a question, and please forgive me as its probably dumb.

What kind of brake is it (time delay/proportional) and how do I set it up once installed?

Thanks

Haven't trailered yet but I'm told it's proportional...applies more brake as you step harder on the trucks brakes.

Once installed it has a (+) and (-) right on it and gives digital numbers as you increase decrease how much brake you want. How much brake will depend on the trailer and how heavy a load you have. Typically, I like the trailer to stop itself, no strain on the truck or trailer unequal. I'm sure most would agree with this.

Installed and working. Less than ten minutes to install.
Thanks to all for the information on this post. I would say this tread saved me around $200, at least.

Thanks for the information. When I went to pick up my new trailer the dealership there gave me a lesson.

Thanks

2011 Big Horn 1500. Just checked and it has both of them. If it matters my truck is about a week old. The face of the large plug is white and the face of the smaller one is orange. One would think that the latter models would have both plugs.

Exclamation

Bully TC 301 brake controller users may run into the problem to drain the trucks battery.

Its Molex connector pins are:
Pin 1 red receives the 12V Accessory ignition switch wire. = black on Reese pig tail PN# 20273
Pin 2 Blue comes from the stop light switch. = red
Pin 3 black is negative = wt
Pin 4 is the output to the brakes = blue
(RAM 2010 2500 4x4 Diesel with factory wired trailer plugs has constant battery power from fuse J02 30 Amp. on Pin 1 of the Bully unit using the larger of the two under the dash trailer brake controller plugs)

I installed a relay to switch the Pin 1 power off. Its coil power came from an ACC wire.

Thanks to the OEM money saving skinny wires be aware that 20A draw is the limit!

Do not trust the 30A fuse looking at the lenghts of the 20A rated wire to the rear trailer plug hauling 6 or more electrical brake magnet trailer. Mobile home axle trailer users watch out for even four units.

The second OEM brake controller plug may has the secret that turns the OEM brake controller off when you turn your ignition off. What is its pin layout?

Please edit this matter.

Question

Great detailed post

I tried to order the control with my local dealer and was told that the OEM module can not be sold for a truck that was not originally equipped with because of troubleshooting risks. (Even if all the wiring is in place, from the factory)
Dealer told me Chrysler now has a new kit available but it is on backorder for god knows how long (475 on B/O and only 124 scheduled for delivery at the end of April) and it is way more expensive... 354$
Anyone knows about this???

I wonder what the difference in trouble shooting would be for a OEM controller and the exact same controller sold as OEM option for more money...It would make sense to me to simply pull two plugs is trouble shooting were really a problem.
