trailer brake question
hey guys and gals. quick question i have a 09 ls crew cab with the heavy duty towing package. it already has the 7 pin connector on the bumper and all. i was at the dealer this morning and asked if checy had a trailer brake controller that would mount somewhere on the dash. they informed me that they didnt do that for our trucks. does anyone know if this is true? i would rather keep the truck looking somewhat stock but if i needed to i would go aftermarket. thanks for the help2009 silverado crewcab ls - VA

where is yours located at on the dash? is it inbetween the two power outlets right of the steering wheel?

In my parents truck it's to the left and below the steering wheel (2500hd 2007.5). I installed an aftermarket Prodigy in my 2004 2500HD and put it under the dash where I can still reach it, but it's out of sight.

I don't think they did the electronic brake controller stock with the towing package. If you wanted that, they could install it from the factory of course, but I don't think it was anything GM brand.
I have a Prodigy on mine though. I've liked it a lot. No problems with it at all. And as far as I know, installing the after market brake controllers doesn't void warranty or anything. So you shouldn't have anything to be worried about as far as installing something that's not from GM.MY LUG NUTS REQUIRE MORE TORQUE THAN YOUR RICER MAKES! :sign0011:
