    How do you test if you don't have a trailer? I'd like to check mine out.

    Buy a 7pin plug and keep the receipt. Plug it in half way, chk the voltage to each lead and return for refund. OR... go rent a travel trailer, take yer lady out for the weekend and have fun with the experiment.

    Not yet, they have had the truck since last Thursday sitting in their queue, many recall vehicles ahead of me.

    I did get a call from them yesterday asking if I saw a check engine light or any other message while towing, and I didn't. The service writer told me my truck is in the repair bay and they have Chrysler on the line working on the issue.

    May be today I will get better answers.

    On a positive note, my son's friend took delivery of a 3500 about the same time I did. He has the same issue with his goose neck toy hauler. The difference is he works for Chrysler and sent an email to the ITBM release engineer asking for help.

    This issue may have the attention level needed to get addressed.

    Sorry to hijack...

    I have a Prodigy RF controller from my SUV. Should I stick with that or the factory controller on my new-to me-2012 2500? How do I disconnect the factory controller if I go that route?

    Thanks!

    The dealer still has my truck, one week as of yesterday morning. I don't think they know how to troubleshoot the issue. The ITBM isn't that complicated and it shouldn't take more than two days to troubleshoot and fix. It only took me two hours to discover the low output issue after 60%.

    I'm not really sure where to go from here, I want what I paid for to work. Just in case, I order the Prodigy P2 cable for the 2015 RAM. I can use the P2 for my upcoming vacation to mange the fiver's brakes.
