Stopped by a large chain hunting store (the one with the big fish tank) and found a Curt brake controller and wiring kit on clearance, on the way home from looking at and putting down payment towards 2014 sport 8. Great timing, Nissan recommends trailer brakes over 1000lbs for Frontiers. Current options specifies 5100lbs max trailer weight. WELL under.

Was using it to tow our camper to have an outing over Easter weekend. Truck died on the way there.
Getting it towed to get my STC fittings replaced in the high pressure oil pump. Luckily my camping buddy picked up my trailer and took it to the CG. Another friend will be doing the repairs to the truck at his shop. Good times
