Break controller

Is it a single plug or do you plug or is it a panel that you plug into?

Its a single plug. Its buried in the wiring harness behind the column and took me quite a while to find it on our 2015 30DS (2014 F53 chassis). Might be easier to remove or set aside the instrument cluster and peak through there.

Brake Controller

Here's a pic from ours. I know for sure it wasn't located on the LH side of the column like its shown, but rather tied up. You can see where it breaks out of the harness close to the floor, with a 5-6 inch pigtail.

Just like your picture. Up next to the column. All I had to do was unplug the provided pig tail and plug in my reliant ford adapter. Good deal done and done.

Anyone added powered vents? The wiring is ther just not sure how to wire it?

Thanks for all your help it saved me a bunch!

Powered vents

Yes, I was having the same problem and was able to get the info from this forum. Once you remove the interior trim plate and hardware the wires run along the side of the cavity. The bedroom and living room were a breeze, they fell right out (on mine), but the bathroom wires do not terminate and need to be tapped into.

Powered vents

Forgot to add...there are two wires per vent location and are standard 12 volt DC. Match your wires for positive and negative...do a temporary connection and turn on for a second if not sure or use a meter. The motor should rotate for vacuum (pull). If it doesn't then the wires need to be reversed. Sorry, would give more info but I did this last year and I can't remember the colors of the available wires.
