2000 F250 trailer brake wiring help needed

Hey all, found the factory plug behind the dash, plugged my controller in and the light signals when i hit the brakes. So, my trucks towing wiring is garbage. I wanna rerun it from the plugs under the bed into the bed. Does anyone know where i can find the blue brake wire, 12v, and yellow wire so I can add the fifth wheel cord to the bed? Thanks!

IDK on a 2000, I have Aldata at work that may tell us where the wire is. If I remember correctly if you didn't have the towing package the blue wire is dead headed near the master cylinder.

I had the 4way factory also. Up beside the spare you should have a square plug with all functions right there.
Might have to add trailer charge and brake controller relays and fuses though.

So the wiring is wrong somewhere in the camper. When I pulled it home all I had was taillights. Now nothing. Hooked to my buddies truck and nothing. Is there a relay or a fuse somewhere??? The outside light by the pin didnt work, so we took the fuse out by the trailer brake, cleaned it and now the light works but still not driving, tail, stop or reverse lights..... im stuck

Verify the truck wiring, all of it.
Then, you should be able to plug in, find a Jbox (or possibly a fuse block) for trailer lights only.
What kind of trailer is it? Fifth wheels have a jbox in the pin box area. Bumper pulls are down inside the driver side frame rail, just under the body usually.

Just because the plug is under the dash does not mean you have everything to make it work. You can find the OEM kits online or at your dealer or make one . You need the adapter harness for the rear of the truck with the 7 pole RV socket, the brake controller fuse and relay and the battery charge fuse and relay. The go into the power distribution box under the hood. I had to do it to my 2000 F350 and used the OEM kit from my local dealer.

How much was ur kit? The brake controller has power to it. When I press the brakes a light turns on. The more "intensity" I set it at the darker the color from yellow to red. Ive found the plugs in the back of my truck underneath. Ebay shows the "harness" 2 plugs into one 7 spade rv plug but its $100...
