2005 Monaco Dynasty trailer brakes (sharing)

Thought I would post here if it helps someone in the future.

My coach pretended to have the trailer brake wired at the 7-way trailer socket, however after several days of searching the dash area, finally bought a tone probe and found the brake wire stopped about a foot up the loom from the socket, those deceiving buggers LOL

I ran a new 10 gauge wire from the dash all the way back. I went through the floor with the rest of the wiring by the driver left foot, then I followed the loom over and above the generator. then just followed the chassis wiring along the frame on the passenger side all the way to the back. It was not too bad going through the compartments, worst part was the water tank bay.

As to the brake trigger, this coach has the negative brake light thing, eg the circuit is hot until triggered. Not wanting to buy a relay, I simply hooked directly into the service brake sensor switch itself. These are located on the outside of the firewall directly behind the brake pedal (easily accessible from the generator area). I verified with a multi-meter and helper to push the brake pedal (with air system charged) that I had the right pole on the switch.




For the 12V and ground I tapped into the electrical box below the driver seat:




Finally I have a completed pigtail ready for a controller, inline fuses will be installed when I put the controller in:

Good catch. I know my Dynasty trailer brakes work because I've driven the coach with the dolly attached, but no car on it, and you could hear the thing bounce and rattle all over the place when the brakes were applied.

Thanks. I wish I had that kind of luck, it would have saved me a few days of wiring shenanigans
