04 Itasca 7 pin/brake controller

I thought There was a brake controller installed on my 2004 Sunova when I bought it, but now I have found out that it is not hooked up, there is a few wires connected under the dash, the brake switch wire and ground but nothing else is connected. yet it does have the 7 pin connector in the back of the RV. is there any factory plugs for this? It is -10F out today so have not inspected the rear plug yet.

You might have an owner installed brake controller however to the best of my knowledge, Workhorse does not provide OEM wiring for a brake controller. You may have to follow the wires back to the plug to check the connectivity. The coach should have been pre-wired for ground, 12v, signal and brake.

my 05 Pace had the factory wires under the dash(brake) and under the hood(hot/Charging wire) just not hooked up so they may be there if it came with a 7 pin from the manufacturer

My '04 Itasca Sunrise (W22 chassis) had the 7-pin plug at the rear, BUT there was no wiring for the pins that correspond to the trailer brakes, backup lights, or the aux 12v; I had to run new wiring all the way back.

Winnebago is usually pretty good about providing the right connections at the 7 pin plug. I didn't have a problem with my 03. Would it have been possible to check the pins and rewire the plug to meet your needs?

I have not yet inspected the rear. We have a heatwave on the way on Tuesday and it is supposed to be 22f. So I will check and report back

Nothing needed to be "rewired"; the 7-pin plug was there, and the pins that WERE wired were wired correctly. It's just that there were only 4 wires in the harness; ground, running lights, right turn/brake, left turn/brake. The other 3 pins in the plug weren't connected to anything at all.

I had to add wiring from the front of the coach all the way back to the plug for the trailer brakes & aux 12v. Backup light wiring is also missing from the plug, but my trailer doesn't have backup lights, so I left that alone.

In that case, indeed, that would be the procedure to bring in a brake controller and a 12V.
