I'd be happy to tell you all the parts you'd need to install a brake controller in your 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 2500. Since it does not have a 4-way you would need to install harness # 118649 before using the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller # ETBC7. You were also correct that a brake pedal switch, Roadmaster's # RM-751475, will be necessary for your Sprinter.

As for a brake controller, I strongly recommend the Prodigy P2 # 90885; it is the most popular model we carry due to its effectiveness and ease of use. It will activate your trailer's brakes immediately in proportion to your Sprinter's brakes and offers three different boost levels so you can adjust your braking power.

The P3 levels automatically, has constant diagnostic checks, contains safeguards which defend your controller against shorts.

If you used the adapter part # ETBC7L you could use a Prodigy RF brake controller but the RF isn't made currently so you may have a hard time finding one. A better option would be the Echo part # C51180 which would use same adapter and be super easy to install.
