Switch Panel for a Redarc Control Knob on a 2022 Subaru Ascent

Question:

I am looking to install a Redarc Tow-Pro Elite controller on my 2022 Subaru Ascent. I undertand from reading other answers here that the 2022 Subaru Ascent with the factory tow package actually has a port under the dash where one can plug the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # RED44FR directly into the Ascent with a Tekonsha Pigtail # 3062-P plugged directly into said port and a Redarc to Tekonsha adapter # 331-TPH-017. My big question is: is there a Switch Panel that fits the standard Subaru panel It looks the same as the 2019 outback and likely the same as several Subaru models that is to the left of the steering wheel? I have attached a picture of the blanks and panels on my 2022 Ascent, a ditance view and a closeup.

Thanks for the pictures! I have exactly what you are looking for. We have a couple of mounting options for the control knob that can go inside inserts in your Subaru's dash. This will give you a clean factory look install. The Universal Mounting Panel for Redarc Tow-Pro Trailer Brake Controller Control Knob item # 331-TPSI-001 which measures 1-1/4 by 1 inch. There is also the option of using the Mounting Panel for Redarc Tow-Pro Trailer Brake Controller Control Knob item # 331-TPSI-002 for the more standard knock-out measuring 1-1/4 by 7/8 inch. I have linked a couple diagrams to show you the dimensions of these mounts so you will be able to confirm which size best fits your Ascent.

I can confirm that the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller - 2 Braking Modes - 1 to 3 Axles item # RED44FR will plug directly into your 2022 Subaru Ascent's port because you have the factory tow package. To have a completely plug and play install, you will need the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dual Plug In item # 3062-P and the Redarc Tow-Pro Wiring Adapter for Tekonsha Brake Controller Harness item # 331-TPH-017.
