Equipment Recommendation for Audi Q5 & AS Sport 16
Newbie here and would like some towing equipment recommendations for my specific set up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I'm considering a 2014 AS Sport 16. I plan to tow it with my 2012 Audi Q5 3.2L V6. The Q5 has a max tow capacity of 4400 lbs so I think it should be sufficient for the Sport 16. I also do have the factory-installed trailer hitch (2-inch, I think) on the Q5. Next to it is the electrical receptacle (see photos attached). The diagram next to this receptacle appears to indicate the required height of the hitch ball.
I would appreciate any recommendation on specific equipment I need to safely tow a stock Sport 16.
Lastly, I don't believe the factory installed hitch includes an electronic brake controller. But I've read several posts on audi forums that the round receptacle next to the hitch does connect to a 4-pin wiring harness that sits behind the dash. So I'd also like a recommendation on a brake controller for my set up as well.
Many thanks in advance!
