I was concerned about the wiring harness, cuz mine came with some wire just laying loose in the cargo tray...and I figured there would be some extra work. Too bad they don't supply this complete and ready to go...with hitch and harness ready to hook up. But I guess it still depends on what you'll be towing and all. The dealer told me the transmission cooler might also be a nice plus on warm days when I am climbing the mountain upon which I live. I haven't really had the opportunity to use it, tho...and wouldn't know if it was doing anything constructive, anyhow. Awww, well...if I run into a nice used utility trailer somewhere's...I may just pick it up and the rest will just have to fall in place. What's the TSB on this one?? Guess I better read it.
KMunch, I certainly don't want to upset you or any one else but I am a little confused. The pkg discription reads as follows:
"V92 Trailering Provision Package, 4500 lb includes transmission cooler, wiring harness and factory installed hitch
1 - Includes (QD5) compact aluminum spare wheel."
This is on the 2009, the 2008 doesn't mention the Spare, I don't believe.
In either case, wiring harness should be more than 'Loose Wires in cargo tray", in MPO. I suspect you have to buy the connector as they don't know what pin number you will be using. I may be wrong, but I would certainly visit with your dealer. If I am wrong I am sorry. My Burb has the pkg and the wires were connected, fused and taped to prevent shorting. The same with the crew cab before it. You might want to check it out.
It would certainly make it easier, safer and cheaper to make it "trailer ready" I know time changes almost everything but this doesn't make sense to me.
Good Luck, BD
PS: Well I was right on part of this post at least. Please check your Enclave manual for 2008, Section 4, pg 39. I am reading a pdf copy we were given not too long ago. In brief all wires are connected except the Trailer Brake and Battery Feed Lines. Instructions are given on location on Fuse Panel where they go. It also states the connector that goes on the Enclave is furnished. If you have a 2009 you should find simular instructions, I am still waiting for my 2009 so I can't give you a direct reference on them.
