Unhappy Brake controller connection

I have a 2004 Southwind 37C with a factory hitch and plug. I am attempting to install a brake controller and can't find any connecting point under the dash. I purchased a GM plug-in kit but can't find anything that matches the plug. Any ideas?

Contorted Southwinder!!

Call Fleetwood and they will be more than happy to help. There will be a plug under the dash, somewhere, for a brake control. They will help.

Who made your chassis? They're the one who set up the plug. I have info on Freightliner if you need it, but nothing on the other chassis out there.

Brake controller wiring

I forgot to mention that the chassis is a W-22 Workhorse. Workhorse probably furnished the wiring with the chassis but Fleetwood likely are the ones who found a hiding place for it. They don't make it easy!! I am going to contact Fleetwood as soon as I get a chance.

Thanks for the help so far. If anyone is coming to Vermont, the foliage is fantastic this year, almost makes you forget winter is next!!!

I have a 2007 Fleetwood on a W20 Workhorse. I found a blue wire under the dash on the drivers side to the left of the steering column. It was taped to a wire harness. I had to run battery and ground wires along with a trigger wire from the brake switch as there was no connector just a loose wire. Be sure to use a breaker at the positive battery terminal to protect the controller and wiring.
