2014 American Revolution Pre-Wired for supplemental braking?

I am trying to find out if the Fleetwood chassis for the 2014 American Revolution is already pre-wired for supplemental braking. I have been searching and I can't seem to find any information for this coach. Is there a connector somewhere inside the dash?

Also if anyone has any experience with the level of difficulty of install of the US Gear tow brake controller, that would be greatly appreciated!

If it's on a Freightliner chassis, it is. Otherwise I don't know.

American Coach makes their own chassis using the front and rear assemblies from a Freightliner XCM chassis. So, I'm not sure if they have preserved the pre-wiring for the supplemental brake controller.

Very simple, call Freightliner and give them the VIN. most likely they will say yes, as I believe all Fleetwoods are wired for supplemental braking since 2009 for both Freightliner and Spartan. You can then ask them for a wiring schematic as well.

Before I bought my 14 Rev, I did read somewhere that it is prewired for a brake controller. Finding the wire behind the dash might be fun. Call american coach customer service, they should be able to help you.
