New Aire Toad Brake install

I'm moving my 03 Wrangler to the New Aire after using it on two prior units. The Wrangler has a US Gear UTB which has worked well for the past 10 years or so. I found the trailer brake pigtail at the steering column and used the switched 12V, Air Brake signal and ground from the six pin plug to attach the controller. All those connections work fine. My problem is getting the Brake signal (Blue wire) back to the 7 pin connector at the hitch. The Newmar connector has a wire labeled Electric Brake which is a heavy Red with white stripe which I assumed would go to the brake pin on the hitch connector but I'm getting nothing. I put a tone on the wire at the front plug and can trace it from the cockpit through the drivers side electrical bay and then into a loom heading back but get nothing in the engine compartment.
Hoping someone can give me some insight on this. Thanks

Have seen some great ideas on her so far. Supposed to get my Bluefire adapter in the mail today. That was a great find!

Some NA owners must be towing cars looked through this thread and some of the NA write ups but no towing info.
This Newmar search may have something.
Congrats on your NA and many safe miles for you.

Thanks. Spoke to Freightliner and they said it should be continuous plug to plug so I guess I'll hit a service center.
Got the Bluefire up and running. Handy as a back up for the glass dash. I was on I40 a couple of weeks ago and had the dash freeze completely. Got off the highway and had to use the rear battery disconnect to get it to reboot. No problems since but a little disconcerting.

On my 2019 New Aire I had Air Force 1 installed so no need for the brake control wire. Sorry but all my lights worked correctly through the plug.

I have all lights working properly through the 7 pin also. Its just the control wire that does not connect. That's why I am wondering if I'm missing something. I was hoping someone had identified a unused wire between the cockpit and engine area but apparently not. It may be that I'm down to replacing the UTB with a system in current production like the Air Force 1. Thanks for the reply.
