    The unit needs to be programmed and told it has trailer electrics fitted I believe... Could be wrong but in Vauxcom I am sure I have seen a program option in the REC to make the tow electrics present or not present.

    ABSOLUTLY mate - if it worked with the old REC and not the new- suggests its not been programmed with all the functions your old one had..

    Take it back - get someone out with a TechII and say you will wait while they re-programe.
