trailer brake controler

So i bought a trailer. then went crap i have to tow it with my pathfinder. so i bought the factory hitch and wiring and intalled that then had to put in the brake controler.
i wanted it to look clean because this is the first new car i have owned. so did some reasearch and found the haynes brake boss 2 would fit perfect in the dash.
ordered it up. this is the outcome. love the way it looks and functions. and was supper eays to install. just remove the blanking plug and cut the dash and then a little sanding to make it fit just right.

i have an s model so i only have 2 buttons. the tow mode and the traction control. they were in the top but i just swaped them to the bottom. i anted the bake controler on top and it was eaiser to mount that way.
the buttons are easy to move around, they give you plenty of harness. if you have a min of 3 blank plugs you can do it.

That's great fuel eco, I get 10-12 mpg. I have a weight dist hitch my tongue weight is around 400lb so that helps not sag to bad and sway control also. The PF pulls like a dream.

Nice, I may have to do this too.

Wow, clean look! I have a SV and only has 2 buttons also. Im pulling a 1994 16ft Casita Spirit Deluxe 2200lbs dry weight. Prob wont have brake controller in and installed before this weekends trip, but on shortlist of camper laundry list since brakes also need an update.
