Brake controller and wiring kit????

My 2006 Class C Sunseeker on a E450 chassis came with a 4 pole wiring harness. Can anybody tell me where a person might find a whole kit to add the brake controller and new 7 pole wiring? I assume somebody makes a kit that pretty much just plugs into factory wiring but I'm having trouble finding it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Ok, I got some info from etrailer. I think I found the factory plug for the brake controller. Can anybody tell me if it is a gray 6 pin plug located right by the emergency brake that is used? Also they tell me I should have some extra wires on my frame rail to splice into for hooking up the new 7 pin. Well the wire harness goes straight from the hitch up inside the camper, so my question is, right next to my straight 4 pin plug is a seperate round 4 pin plug with a little trailer symbol on it, does anybody know if this plug was used for braking systems on older trailers??? Just wondering if thats where my wires are that I need for the new 7 pin.

My guess is that vehicle is already wired. You shouldn't need to splice any wires. Typically there is an inline plug in the wiring harness near the hitch. I bought a factory 7 pin assembly from my ford dealer. You simply unplugged the connection near the hitch and installed the new 7 pin inline. The brake controller plug is usually grey and slightly rectangular, their location varies by vehicle.
