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.

Thanks

I'm not 100% certain whether the truck has the tox package or not. Some people on this board are saying 2004's DIDN'T come with tow packages... unless the 2004's that did aren't the XE's...

Regardless, I need the controller.

Alright, we went and had the Prdigy installed. All's well. The hitch is going to be modified to add 2 chain links on the side. They'll weld 2 lnks onto the hitch itself and it'll be good.

The prodigy is really nice. And it was nice that the truck had the 4 pin and 7 pin harnesses run already.
