Brake controller for 2018 Legacy 38C

Looking to install a proportional brake controller to pull a Tow Master dolly with Electric bakes, Try to get info from FR, they dont know what they design into their own coaches and sent me a picture of the connector under the dash and suggested calling Freightliner and no luck there either.
I see some posting installing a Tekonsha on a Ford with some special harness.
Any recommendation on what I need is appreciated?

I found the info I was looking for, I hope it can help someone.

In all my research the best unit today to buy is a Tekonsha, some say a P2 and some say a P3 where the P3 is a bit more sophisticated with a few more options.

The above wire harness is a plug and play on my Legacy 38C 2018.

I installed it on the left of steering to be of easy reach to manually activate the brakes if needed.

My previous post has the info, but here it is again:


Go to the link, buy the adapter, install the device as I showed in the picture, find the connector under the dash and plug the thing in.

That is it. just read the book to calibrate and configure the controller.
hookup the toad, plug it in, go driving..
