I have a new to me 2012 Ford Edge with the factory tow package. I'm not clear if that means it is prewired for a trailer brake controller or not. What do I need to add the brake controller? Do I just need the controller and a wiring adapter to plug into, or do I need more than that?

It goes without saying that we, and our children, will practice safe social distancing, etc. I am more concerned about how to ensure a reliable internet connection - and sometimes I need serious access, if I am encoding a livestream (I am not a blogger, this is for corporate work).

I have a low mileage car that's gone about 7 months/2000 miles since its last oil change. I usually try to get one every 6 months regardless of mileage because it's an older car and I use it for a general checkup.

I'm still trying to avoid unnecessary interactions with the public.

Links or personal experiences appreciated. [more inside]
