This has been discussed a lot. If you search for "brake controller" [ ------ > ] you will find the threads I think. I will also edit and post links.Hi All,
Just finalizing my order this week... I would like to get the factory trailer brake controller for possible future towing use, but I really don't want to give up the 2nd cupholder. Since I have no need for a trailer brake at this point, does anybody know if there is a plug and play aftermarket controller that can be added? I am not really looking for details about installation, just whether it is a possibility down the road.
kenjent's thread was for the whole trailer harness, but it gives a good idea of how Ford has made it nearly impossible for the average person to add on things like brake controllers into the rolling computer which the new Transit is. Better to miss the cup holder IMO than INTENTIONALLY buy a new $50k can of worms . . . ?
