My controller came yesterday. I ordered it online becasue I got it way cheaper than my dealer wanted to charge! Installed it this morning in about 15 minutes. Its a lot easier than it looks and you guys have made it all look really easy. Thanks for your help!

Sorry if I didn't see this answer, but can anyone tell me? I just installed my controller and haven't made it to the dealer to have it flashed yet. I can see a trailer LED in the background but it doesn't light up when I'm connected to my trailer. Is this something that only shows up once flashed? Everything else works fine when connected.

I did the same thing, controller came in 3 weeks. Installed it and had the dealership flash the computer. Since they sponsor the Tidewater Mopar Club I paid minimal for the computer work.

Just installed unit on my 2011 Laramie.

Took about 25 minutes ... 10 for the two connections. Kinda tight.

Used the new kit - Part # 82212548.

Kids got it for my birthday through Wyckoff.

Since it is a kit, hoping the Dodge (Ram) Boys don't hit me too hard on the flash.

Directions no better than what is shown on this thread, but they come several languages .....

Make sure the unit comes on for a few seconds and then goes off when you turn on the ignition. Do this with NO trailer hooked up.

A big thank you for making this install so simple.
It was so nice to look under the dash of the 2011 Crew Cab Sport and see the white faced and orange faced plugs, just waiting to be plugged into the ITBM part#56029431AH ($97.92) and my black/gray bezel part#1EB13XDVAA ($6.50) ordered with a quick call to mopar-wholesale.com which I had to call a couple times to catch them when the ITBM was "in-stock". Did the install and drove to the dealership (Papik's) where they added the ITBM to the vehicle options with code "XHC" and then reflashed. Now everything shows up on the dash also.
