Statdoc in a previous thread posted I am assuming your coach is on a Freightliner chassis. In which case there is a 6 wire plug at the base of your steering wheel that you might be able to plug your brake controller wire into. I have a US Gear tow brake that essentially uses an electric brake controller. Using their pig-tail EC-4128 (got it from Amazon) the installation was under 10 minutes. You might be able to buy the same item, cut off the connector (controller end) and solder it onto your brake controller. This should make the installation super simple.

It wasn't easy for me to find a freightliner plug to fit the Berk so I cut it off, crossed referenced the wiring colours with that of a Ford F150 plug and crimped that one in place. Worked perfect and much easier to find brake controller plugs for a Ford than ordering one that fits that one.

We already have our controller, only the thread in the motorhome that we do not find. We bring the motorhome in a place that installs electric brakes and he search for an hour and a half and did not find anything
