Workhorse/Dinghy wiring system

Can someone tell me if my 2003 Itasca Suncruiser Model IFG38g is prewired for a dinghy braking system. Thank You

If it is... it should be obvious.
Have you bent down, lifted up it's tail and looked?

A braking system most likely not. It will have a 4, 6 , or 7 wire trailer harness receptacle, and any of them will work with a self contained toad brake system.

The brake controller it sounds like you're thinking of is only used with a trailer with electric brakes, to modulate the braking.

Toad brakes are triggered by inertia, or in the case of the better ones such as SMI, by both inertia and the motorhomes brakelights.

My tow vehicle is a 2003 jeep rubicon unlimited that has a D-celeration unified tow brake system made by US Gear I think. The jeep has all the parts on it, my MH has a plug at the rear that I use for my brake lights. US Gear want to know if the MH was pre wired for a braking system so that they can give me the parts i need to complete the system. will I need to get the wiring harness is the question or will the plug that there work? The plug that is there is a small 6 pin

Workhorse wasn't pre-wiring for toad brakes back then. Or now either, as near as I can tell from their website.

I know I had to add the brake wiring on my 2002 Workhorse.
