2007 Dolphin Wired for Brake Controller?

Getting ready to purchase a tow dolly with electric brakes so we can tow the automatic trans equipped Mini Cooper.
Probably buy the Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller as I have used this in the past towing a trailer behind a Ford Expedition. I still have the connector cable and was wondering if the Dolphin (F53 chassis) is wired so I can use the same connector. Service guy I talked to on the phone said most motorhomes are not pre-wired for trailer brakes and it would be about $200 to wire one. My motorhome is at the storage facility right now or I'd just go out and check for myself. Can't imagine the m/h having a hitch and seven pin connector and not be wired for brakes as well. Checked the m/h and chassis manuals and neither address this issue.
Anybody know?

My last 2 Mohos (Workhorse chassis) were not pre-wired. I inspected the existing 5000 lb. hitch and it looked weak. I had my local hitch vendor weld a beefy hitch on and install a prodigy brake controller. Pricey but no worries.
