Locating harness for electronic brake controller

I am trying to locate the factory harness for my electronic brake controller, I have searched without success. I have a 7 wire outlet on the hitch so I am making the assumption that it is pre-wired. I bought the cable for Ford as this is a f53 chassis. Any help would be awesome. I am stuck at the race track until I can get this going.

Zachary

This Ford Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) Q-206 may answer your question.

Mine was next to the fire wall on driver side about half way brown in the middle of the rats nest of wires. Just above the brake pedal.

Billy-

To make it plug-and-play, you need to buy a cable adapter that fits your brake controller on one end and the Ford 6-pin plug on the other. A sample is at this URL:

Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Ford, Lincoln, Mercury Tekonsha Accessories and Parts 3035-P

etrailer sells them. You should confirm with them (or your supplier of choice) that the adapter is correct for your controller and coach chassis (I assumed a Ford F53, but you know about assumptions ...).

Also, without the wiring diagram for your coach I can't be sure that the controller wires make it to the hitch plug. You should confirm that, too.

Mark
