I am heading up to Napanee a week from Monday to pick up my 09 Dutch Star. Couple of questions:

Where can I get a TOAD setup installed as well as a brake controller that would be near Newmar?

Any suggestions on where to get a SAT installed while up there?

After a few days in Napanee, we are heading out for a month on the road.

Thanks in advance.....

You can try DUNCAN. They have an excellent reputation.

Also, the manufacturers of the equipment you want installed may have recommended installers they can refer you to.

The brake controller is VERY easy. They have the 4 wires labeled under the dash. All you need is a wire stripper/crimper.

You are very brave to take a brand new coach out on a long trip. Good luck and many trouble free miles.

Hi! Call Newmar service. If they are not real busy they can handle the Sat and maybe brake controller setup. They will also give you names of places to go if they can't. Paul

roadrunner,
can you tell me where under the dash of your ventana you found the four wires? and are they labeled?
I just set up my car to tow and need to buy a braking system and am considering the Unified Tow Brake. as Spartan chassis are not pre-wired for this as some Freightliner and Roadmaster chassis are I'm wondering if these wires would be enough. It would allow my buying the set-up without the wiring harness and be able to save some money.
thanks,
Gary
