Solenoid for towing?

I bought a 2010 GMC 1500 a little over a year ago. it has a solenoid under the drives seat about the size of a 16 oz beer can. I was told its a brake for towing, it has no name on it that I can find. any ideas of a name of a manufacture ?

Google " Invisibrake " to see if that's the aux toad braking system your looking at .

Should have cable under the carpet , a pulley on the firewall and a connection, for the cable ,on the brake pedal arm about 4" above the pedal .

EDIT: Back in time to add to this post .
Could be part of the " USGear Unified tow brake" system , if what's under the seat looks like this.

If you download an install manual and pull all the components and wiring , could be worth a few $$ .
