Ok, I need more info about my truck, and don't really have time to search the threads...
I'll primarily be towing a US Cargo 2 axle enclosed trailer. 2 5/16" ball.
#1. I'll need a brake controller. What is a good one?
#2. The truck has a 4 pin wiring plug and the trailer has a 7 pin (round) plug. If I get a 4-->7 adapter, will the brakes work on the trailer or will a separate harness need to be run to the back of the truck for trailer lights and brakes?
#3. Does my Titan have the controller plug under the dash as mentioned in other threads? It's an '04 Titan.
#3. I've got a buyer's 3 ball adjustable hitch. The darn thing sticks out SO far that the safety chains on the trailer barely connect. (There wouldn't be any slack in the chains if I hooked them up). Is it a bad idea to take 2 tow rated carabiners (tow clips) and put them on the hitch on the truck to give the trailer safety chains more slack? Kind of like this ---> 00 Clip 1 to each side of the hitch in the safety chain holes, then clip a 2nd one in each of those to give the chains a bit of slack... Or, is it a better idea to put longer safety chains on the trailer?
I'll be towing this weekend and need to get this done quickly and SAFELY.
