    06-09 trailer wiring installation

    So I finally found a used trailer wiring kit for my 2008 Range Rover full size and have a few questions. The only instructions I can seem to find online are for the 2003-2005 wiring. Has anyone installed one for the 06-09 models?

    - The 03-05 instructions show a loose red wire from the wiring harness that you need to plug into the white connector above the relays. I dont see this red wire at all in my harness.
    - The 03-05 instructions have a 30 amp fuse and relay that you must install. None of this came with the (used) kit I bought and not really sure if it was apart or needed for 06-09 models?
    - Lastly, the wiring harness I have comes with 3 harnesses branching off - 1 connector goes to the module, 1 connector goes to the white connector right next to the module mount, and then there is a third that just looks like a relay of some sort? The 03-05 only shows the first 2 connectors I listed above.
    - Does the 06-09 model need to be programmed for the trailer harness to work?


    Sorry for the numerous questions but I just want to be sure that everything is installed correctly before I hook it up.

    I also have a 2008 with the same challenge. Can anyone assist? Where the single orange wire goes and the relays is the challenge.
