What all does the towing package include? The truck I'm lookin at has it, it has the bigger alt I know, which I need for audio comp anyway, but what else? Has the trailer hitch on back thats ugly as sin but that'll come off since I don't need it right now anyway :)

The larger alternator, battery, heavy duty cooling and trans cooler are part of the heavy duty service group

Ah hah...I was wondering if maybe I just hadn't seen enough american engines in my life but it seemed to have "two radiators" as I first called it. Guess one of them was the tranny cooler.

I have a 03 Dakota with the towing package. When towing a small travel trailer (3800 lbs)with electric brakes do I need anything additional to the 7 pin wiring harness on the truck?

Unless you have one already you'll probably need an
electronic Brake controller.

I have a 2000 dodge dakota slt with the 4.7l v8 and 45rfe auto trans. i'm assuming i have the heavy duty tow package cause i have the 7 pin wiring harness that includes a battery charge circuit for a trailer battery. my question is how many amps does the battery charge wire put out and how would i install the electronic brake controller for trailer brakes using the factory supplied connector? i currently pull a dump trailer averaging around 1000 to 2500 pounds of weight. i want to keep my dump trailer battery charged as often as i can and i would like to install the brake controller to help in braking especially down steep hills. the trailer has electronic drum brakes already i just need to hook it up. any help would be much appreciated thanks!
