    That's interesting. I've never looked in the glove compartment of a new truck, only the ones I bought used, cause I hoped that they left cash or diamonds in there by accident.

    Hmmm, wonder what's in there?

    JK, actually I'm clueless (and I have proof)

    Did your truck come w factory trailer brake module installed? If not, that's probably the adapter for aftermarket controller. The ones I've seen usually have like a 4 wire pigtail coming off. It's so you can wire aftermarket controller to that adapter then just plug it in somewhere under dash or kick panel. Makes it easier than running the wires all the way back to hitch/plug.

    If it has the factory controller then like you, I don't have a clue what that's for.

    You sure it's not for the tailgate camera when you remove the tailgate, to protect the connectors.

    This right here... To cover the connector if you remove the tailgate.
