The discovery is easy to install in most applications and functions well. However my Coachmen RV has a Chevy chassis that is not prewired for a controller. After searching for the appropriate wires I finally hard wire3d it myself which proved to be a dirty job. Works great now.

The unit required a separate cable which did not match the pins on the controller. Buyers should be advised that this unit requires a separate cable and to specify the vehicle when ordering the controller so that the correct cable can be supplied.

will this controller plug into my current wiring system in my 1999 chevy suburban?

It will plug in if your truck has an OEM plug for a brake controller. If you don't have a provision, you will need Curt part # 51515 to complete the installation.flag Accept Answer

I ordered the Curt discovery brake controller and was wondering if I need a wire harness for my specific vehicle? Or how can I find out if I need one? I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with the trailering package.

can this brake controller be easilly installed in my vehicle. do I need anything else

Hey Larry, Good news: this brake controller is relatively easy to install. Plugging it in is a cinch because it uses factory-style wire connectors that plug right into your stock harness. Then, you just need to mount the controller using the included brackets and hardware.flag Accept Answer

Will this unit plug into my exsisting wiring without rewiring anything?

Hey Frank, These brake controllers come with a standard electrical coupler, so if your vehicle already has a brake controller input, it'll be a plug-n-play install. However, if your rig isn't pre-wired for a brake controller, you can get a wiring kit here: http://www.autoanything.com/towing/60A3923A0A0.aspxflag Accept Answer
