Need help wiring harness trailer brake controler

Just purchased a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT with only 6700 miles on it.
To make a long story short the truck was used only to haul a travel trailer to the camp site so the original owner had a draw-tite brake controller installed.
Some where between the time he traded it into the local Chevy dealer and I purchased the truck the brake controller was removed. No big deal for me because I had my own controller . The problem is who ever took the brake controller out also took the factory wiring harness. It is a short harness that goes from the fire wall to the left side kick panel and up to just under the steering wheel and I need that harness . The plug ends are female the connectors are grey and square and this part in only found on 2010 Dodge Ram. If someone could help me find this harness it would be a great HELP
Me email address is [email protected]
Thanks
Ron

Did you check the dealer. My 2003 came with the wiring harness in the glove box in case I wanted to hook one up.

The harness in the glove box is to hook up to the brake controller to the factory harness.
On 2010 Dodge Ram the factory harness plugs into the firewall runs behind the lift side kick panel and goes to under the dash just below the steering wheel
This is the harness that was taken

It was a plug set up just stored in the glove box still in the plastic. You take it and plug it under the dash on drivers side to the brake controller. It was a factory plug and play set up . I gave it away when I sold my truck. I will try to get part number

Thanks Guys
Finally got the controller hooked up
Some one removed the factory wiring harness from the fire wall to just under the steering wheel. Talked to the original owner and he told me he traded the truck in with the controller but when I bought it it was missing.

That sucks. Someone at the stealership must have needed one. Did you have to buy a new harness?

Just purchased a brake controller harness for a Durango I think 2009 to 2011 and it plugged into the male plug on the firewall and the leads were long enough to reach my controller.
Thanks
