I had a Setback, but a Cool One

Okay, there’s no nice way to say this so I will just come out and say it . . . I bought a trailer hitch. I know what you’re saying and I did rally against such purchases but you have to understand  . . . . 

1) It’s practical.
2)     It's Cool.
3) It will raise the resale value of my truck.
4) I got a good deal on it.

Alright so it will put me back a bit and since I bout it online I now have to figure out how to install it. Installing the hitch is not the problem as it is a bolt on hitch.  

In truth it is a more solid and substantial hitch than I needed (Class 4 vs a Class 3) but the extra cost wasn’t that much more so I decided why not get the better one. 

Installing the Electronic Brake Unit (to run the electronic brakes on whatever trailer I haul) is also something that I can figure out, yet I am shying away from. 

What really has me concerned is running the wire from the Electronic Brake Unit to the back where the trailer plug is. That is what has me concerned. 

So unless a mechanic decides to give me a hand, I will probably pay a Trailer hitch place a hundred or so bucks to install this for me. The truth is that I don’t want to muck this up.
