Trailer brake connector??

So does the new Ford F-53 chassis have a connector for a trailer brake under the dash? If so where is it located?? Thanks The coach already has the 7 wire connector and hitch so I figure it has a tow package..

Here is a Ford Document that may help you find the plug.

Now that the weather has warmed up to 40 from 10 I have located the connector like in picture 2.. It had wires hooked to it and that threw me off.. The connector had wires that went up and were wrapped around the main harness.. A place sold me the wrong harness adapter since the factory must of had some leftover connectors from 2012 so we have the right unit coming and a new Tekonsha Primus controller.. One more project down.. Last big one is to install the Washer/ dryer

I assume this was for your 364?
Do you have a better pic of the plug itself?

Thats all I have.. It was right next to the column.. I will say that all the trailer places said I need one connect but it took a different one than they suggested

forgot Forest River sent these and they helped a lot.. I will add what thru me off was the wires heading up from the connector.. They are wires just tucked up behind the column.. Give them a tug and they come out and then get a harness for your break controller and that connector in the MH
