Pre wired electric trailer brake

I have a 2004 Rexhall Rexair TR36G on a Workhorse Chassis that I'd like to attach a brake controller for my tow dolly I just bought (used), but I don't know if this chassis is pre wired for trailer brakes or not. Anyone know or can help me locate the plug under the dash or determine if it is pre wired?

AFAIK Workhorse chassis are not pre-wired for trailer brakes. I would expect that you could pickup the brake light signal in the Pollock plug if that will help. This is how my auxiliary brake works.

I would be inclined to run an entirely new wire harness to support the trailer brakes,

After a visit to the local dealer and some well needed scheduled maintenance, I asked the tech to check for pre wiring and to my total satisfaction he informed me that my Rexhall is pre wired. So, next off to the trailer shop for a controller. Thanks for your response, but this time the tech was able to score for me.
