I have a 2009 escape 3.0L and want to install a hitch. Where does the hitch bolt on to? Also i noticed a secured wire harness with a female plug on the inside of my bumper. Would the be the trailer harness?

if u can post pics that would be great!
What about the wiring? I noticed a harness on the inside of the bumber? Do i still need to buy a t-line adapter harness or something?
where do u get them and how much are they?
so its that easy? Just plug it into the harness behind the bumber and the trailer will have brake lights and turn signals?
I read that there is no power going to that harness and u need relays? If u did'nt buy the towing package? Can any one confirm this?
i only have 2 relays in the fuse box under the hood and there is room for 6. so i believe i need 3 relays but got to find them somewhere cheap?
i just got the box that ties into the tali lights and power from battery as the relays are like 30-40$ ea. No thanks.
