This is my first time posting so if it sounds a dumb question its prob because it is…
I bought a 2010 x-trail last year and now want to borrow a caravan from a relative. The tow bar was already fitted and there is a seven pin trailer controller on as well. I have read a few posts on here and made a few phone calls about getting a brake controller fitted – lowest cost I got quoted was $550 for a redarc elite with fitting or about $200-250 for fitting only. I am in Perth, WA so not sure how this compares?
One call I made to a Nissan dealer suggested that the car may already be pre wired for electric brakes in which case I would hope that the installation cost would be less or is it just a case of plugging the controller in somewhere? My question is
a. Is it possible it has been pre-wired and
b. How can I tell – hunting around on the net I believe the brake wire is blue so do I need to remove part of the plug casing to check?
