Yes, I purchased the 10k pound one from harbor freight because it was only $228 buy really didn't need 10k pounds but it was by far cheapest ive seen . When you install it and hook up the vehicle. I've always been taught to jack up the jack with vehicle about 4 inches or until your vehicle looks level . Then hook up the chains or lever which ever system you have on WDH. Then let the jack back down. It takes the weight off the pathfinder.
Good to know thanks!

Hope you are not doing this with the tongue jack unless it is highly rated. I used to do it that way until one day my tongue jack stopped working, stripped the threads. I then bought a small bottle jack and now use it under the WDH to raise them.

I recently purchased a used 2022 SV Pathfinder (with tow package) from a Nissan dealer, and I’d like to transfer my Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller from my 2015 Xterra to the PF.

I thought I would be able to connect the Prodigy brake controller harness from the Xterra directly to the PF port located below the driver’s dash. However, the PF port and the prodigy harness connectors don’t seem to match.

Other posters have mentioned that a pigtail was provided with new vehicles that have tow packages. Do I need this pigtail to connect between the Prodigy Harness and the PF port?

Or have I mistakenly identified the brake controller port on the Pathfinder?

Thank you.

Only the platinum pf came with the pig tail in the glove box at purchase from dealer. I've contacted the manufacturer of pathfinder and they said as of today they have not yet made an way for 7pin harnes to connect to plug at rear bumper. Even if you bought the 4 pin harness and used an 4 pin to 7npin harness , only the regular lights,turn,brake will function and not the trailer brakes.

I believe the first connector (pictured) is actually the dealer installed option harness connector (to the left of the fuse box, driver side).

If you go back to the first page of this thread, you should see a couple of pictures showing the location of the factory brake controller harness.

More from the owner's manual (section 10-27)...

As others have noted, the exact location (according to the manual) is a bit off, but the pictures from others in this thread should help. ;)

FWIW, I was browsing the Nissan Parts site and apparently it turns out that Nissan makes 4-pin to 7-pin harness for the 2022 Frontier...

Just to followup on my earlier post: I initially had identified the wrong connector below the steering column and therefore wasn't able to connect my Prodigy 2 brake controller. Thank you DRK-PTHFNDR for pointing me in the right direction. Once I was able to remove the lower panel, which was the hardest part of the whole process, I found the brake controller port (see photo), and successfully connected it to the Prodigy 2 cable.

After being upside down in my new '22 PF SL and getting extremely frustrated I went to the web for help. I came across these pics and it didn't even take 5 minutes to hook up the Primus IQ. Thank you so much for posting these pics as they are extremely accurate!!! Haven't towed our travel trailer yet but it seems to be connected correctly.

@kc7eph thanks for all this, helped a ton. Here are some photos from me doing this tonight- you pull the full panel down from under the steering wheel, comes down fairly easily. It's wrapped in black- if you feel it, you can feel the plastic connector under the tape. No way I would have found that/accessed it from underneath! View attachment 16285

Nice! Any pics from your install that might be helpful to others?

I purchased this adapter for my P2 brake controller: Tekonsha | 3050-P | Trailer Brake Control Harness

It's listed as a thru '20 compatible product on the Tekonska web site, but it works perfectly.

If you are planning on getting a controller from another brand, I can't be sure if they will ship with the same plug. YMMV
If I don't have the 3050-P harness does anyone know what wire attaches where? There are 5 wires on the Nissan harness and 4 with the Tekonsha controller. I would have ordered the other harness if I knew.
