trailer brake wiring on 2005 Allure 470

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I hope someone can help me out. I just purchased a 2005 Allure 470 and need to put a trailer brake controller in it. Does anyone know if there are wires located somewhere up front for the controller that are already run to the back? I found wires in the back of the motorhome but not having any luck up by the dash. Also, are there any 110 volt receptacles outside, that I can plug a cord into for power off the generator to my trailer?
Thanks for any help

Th9se extra wires are not under the dash. You will find them in the exterior compartment under the driver

I have an 2004 Inspire and paid $20 to CC to be told that there was not a wire for the brake controller. Yours might be different. I ended up running a new wire from the dash to the tail. Not fun as there is no access to wires already running back there. So I had to drill a hole thru the floor under the dash (double walled) and run the wire entirely under the coach along the frame carefully avoiding all moving parts. There were a few wire ties existing under the front, but then hot glued the wire every 6 inches along the frame.

In my case, I disregarded the tail light brake wire on the rear connector and that is where I put the trailer brake controller wire as the right and left blinker wires also control the brake lights on the trailer. One of your controller wires needs to be attached to the brake light wire, which was under the dash.
