I'm towing a tear drop too! But im at 2600 dry and 2900 fully loaded. You're probably just fine but I have to have one for mine. Right now I'm using my Tekonsha controller which is awesome BUT I'm REALLY not wanting to put holes in the dash for the mounting bracket. I've been getting by with heavy duty velcro BUT it comes off in the heat so I'm having to put it back up periodically. It stays on while traveling since the ac is on, but.....tbat's not really a working scenerio! I also keep extra "fresh" velcro but again not ideal!
Does Tekonsha still offer a wireless brake controller?

I bought one a few years ago and it works great.

I have had the P3 for a while now, but haven’t installed it. I bought a trailer today that has brakes and decide to install it…looked under the dash and can’t find the plug it’s supposed to connect to. Am I missing something, looking in the wrong place, or do I have to get the install kit to work with the 4xe?

Do you have the factory tow package? If you do, is just way up in there and you have to clip a zip tie to get it to drop down. If you don't then you would have to hard wire it in.

I have also found the perfect mounting location that requires only a strong clip. No holes to drill anywhere. Just clip and you're done. I will post a pic asap.

I have the factory tow package with the Hd electrical and aux switches, but I’ve crawled under the dash almost as far as I can and haven’t been able to find the plug anywhere. I’ll have to check again, I guess.

It's on the left side of steering wheel. Mine was up there pretty high and had a zip tie holding it.
