Electric brake controller for '04 Damon Challenger

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a better summer than me, (in Quebec north of Montreal for the "summer". Nothing but rain and temps in the 60's!).

I'm replacing my 2012 Forest River tow dolly. The dolly had surge brakes, but in pricing a new dolly, I'm seeing that one with electric brakes will cost me about $500.00 - $600.00 less than surge brakes.

I've found some references to a preexisting 7 wire harness, but all that I can find is a flat 6 wire connector.



My question is the 2004 Damon Challenger 348w pre-wired for electric brakes? Or will I have to run a line from the drivers seat to the rear?

Thanks!

zog

Thank you for your service.

Is your coach built on a Ford or Workhorse chassis?

Hi l1v3fr33ord1,

I can't help you much, as I know little about the Workhorse wiring. Perhaps this can help you.

Electric bake wiring

I have a 2004 Damon Challenger On a workhorse P 32 chassis I had a electric brake control installed this summer. They had to run new wire for it.
It was not pre wired for it.

I have a 2002 Intruder on a Workhorse chassis. My rig also did not come pre-wired for trailer brakes. Had to run a wire for the controller. Was actually easier to do than I thought it would be though.

I have a 2004 Damon Intruder on a W22 chassis. I had to have someone run the wires so that my brake controller could work. I wasn't expensive. Maybe about $150 to install the brake controller and run the wire.

I got the prodigy P2 controller. That's the solid, reliable goto model that's cheap and effective. Easy to adjust based on trailer weight.
