this is a plastic safety lock for the Delphi connector used for the factory equipped harness
the Delphi type connector is the rectangle one

the missing contact and conductor for the trailer brake signal

the ashtray is a perfect location after I conducted some human engineering assessments
Next is to get the Sprinter motorhome provisioned with the trailer brake control. Just like anything else you can spend a lot on a fancy trailer brake controller.

Tekonsha 90195 P3
Strangely with all the gorgeous product images there is not one that shows the manual brake lever which is one strong suit of this controller over all others I have seen. You can barely see it in the images below.
I like the design of the manual override lever
