Installed the Redarc Tow Pro Elite today. Gotta admit, I was a little nervous drilling into the dash!

I went Curt Spectrum and mounted to the left of the steering wheel since I need my 12voly outlet.

:like: Same one I got and the same place I had it mounted with 3M tape, I moved it after the 3M tape kept failing to stick.:headbang: I'm in agreement with you on not wanting to lose 12v outlet, that's a WTF are they thinking by using it for brake controller location.

3M tape kept failing to stick.
I've used a LOT of that stuff in vehicles, on motorcycles, and all over the house including that side. If it failed to stick it's either fake 3M (common on eBay and some on Amazon) or you didn't clean the surface. For vehicle interiors, 91% isopropyl is a great way to prep it. Wipe wet, wipe dry, repeat, let dry, stick.

I love how clean that is, but how do you manually apply the brakes?

Ok, so a push in applies them at full force (whatever is set on the dial)?

Yes and you can press and turn to increase gain manually.

Lol. Feb of 19 was supposed to be the for sure date. What a joke I hope they get nailed with a class action lawsuit over this. I want my $3.50 for the lies and inconvience.

Maybe we could join this up with the class action lawsuit over the huge key fob?

At this point, I would just be happy if they would remove the “ Availability“
Shown on the Mopar and Gladiator website. November 29 of 2020 will mark two years of misleading consumers. We have been plenty patient. I just got off the phone with Jeep customer care (because I must be bored.) and they were insistent that the part is available and to just order it and to just contact my dealership and I just pretend like I haven’t been down this road a freaking dozen times before. Unbelievable!

"Trucks so great, they are whining about key fobs and accessories."

Yeah, the second the dealer said they don't know exactly when they would have one, I moved on and put in another controller.

Lol. We can actually get them for false advertising here. "Best in class towing".

I would love to see one about the key fobs though
