    I thought the controller came built in with the tow package. But I guess not. Here is what I found on the web:

    or

    And here is a good thread on Rennlist on the topic:

    thanks...........my Cayenne GTS did come with a trailer package (tow bar and 7 pin connector) but not a brake controller.

    appreciate the links.

    I had a Teknosha P3 in my Cayenne Turbo for towing, it worked great.

    Follow up for those interested; I bought a Teknosha Prodigy 90250 which is their RF brake controller.

    http://www.tekonsha.com/products/brake-controllers/proportional-controllers/trailer-brake-control-proportional/TzaIxkVx1cI5XOy!osRB508pViEKmVBf

    Using a RF device has many benifits the biggest for me is not having to splice into the factory harness and you dont hard mount a device above the footwell .

    The handheld RF unit essentially plugs into the 12v source near the driver and mounting the controller on the trailer. Following a number of modified steps you pair the 2 together so when sensing the brake pedal is depressed the electric brakes on the trailer operate. Its then a matter of fine tuning the trailer brakes so they dont lock then off you go.

    If interested in the 'modified steps' I can further explain (newsletter article?)

    Now the question is how to get the trailer and the boat to the lake?...........I know, buy another Cayenne!!!!!
