Class A Brake Controller?

I race ATVs and Side-by-Sides and have an all aluminum trailer to tote the toys behind the MH. My question is how many of you all have installed a brake controller in your MH for towing trailers with brakes? I have been trying to find something and can't seem to find anything that outlines people doing it on their rigs and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have a 2011 Georgetown 350F/TS and plan on towing right at 5k lbs behind the rig this coming weekend and would like to install a brake controller this week.

I found this old thread:

http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f16/2008-georgetown

and I'm curious if others with newer units (2010 or newer) are finding the same type of wiring harness. I opened up my gauge cluster tonight and couldn't find one so I'm hoping someone with a newer unit has found theirs so I can track it down before Friday.

I contacted Forest River today and there is one buried in there somewhere on the Ford chassis, but it is only wires, no plug on the end like what I think was in the previous thread pictures. Supposedly it is 5 wires in a coil on top that sits on top of the steering column, so it's back to looking one last time tonight.

This is the same thread you already found, but willing to bet you have the same harness as my '08. I had to dig deep behind the defrost tubing to find it..!

Yep ... found it buried in the front next to the firewall and it did have the factory Ford brake controller plug on it.
