Been reading many of the threads on recommended brake controllers and installation for my 2016 Honda Pilot EXL AWD. I'd like to order a controller that is more low profile than the Tekonsha P3 and others like it. Ideally, I want to use one of the empty buttons to the left of the steering wheel. Has anyone done this successfully? If so, which brake controller is best for this option? Thanks!

I don't have a Dremel. Can I just use a drill bit on the blank?

Thanks. Does the blank come out to work on or do you have to work on it "in dash"?

Just got my package from etrailer. Came with a replacement knockout. Anyone else use it? Does it fit? My wife has the Pilot I will have to check the size later. Would be great if it fit in.

Looks like a perfect match. The problem will be getting the blank that's there out. I cannot get more than a finger on it and tried some needle-nose pliers, but couldn't get them in the tangle of things that are back there.

Mine did not come with that. Wish it did. Let me know if it fits and post a pic. I might have to order it

Here is the picture with it mounted in the dash. Not perfect but pretty good. I can't seem to power up the unit though and replied to a brake controller issue thread in the latest gen pilot area.
