Just had a tow hitch and 7 pin harness installed today at a Kia dealer . I picked up a curt echo trailer brake controller from camping world and it took 30 seconds to connect and setup. I have been lurking here for the last month and noticed a lot of people couldn't figure out how to get a 7 pin setup or find the manufacturer parts. Here is what you need minus the brake controller. Service adviser said these will also work on a 2020. Paid about $900 with labor. 72E13B48-03A7-4E01-B697-4EE49EC4D8B3.jpeg

Did this work out for you? Did you say this install doesn't require a brake controller?

I did not have a brake controller installed by the dealer. I use the the Curt Echo Bluetooth controller that does not require any additional wiring or electrical work. I tow a pop up trailer that weighs about 3500 lbs with this setup.

Thank you for the part numbers. I had a hitch and harness installed and they put a 4 pin harness on my vehicle. I have a Borrego with a 7 pin so I wasn’t expecting a 4 pin on the install. I will switch up to the 7.
