Wiring up a electric brake controller on a 2000 Adventurer

Has anyone installed an electric brake controller on a Winnebago Adventurer and if so how did you get around the problem of the brake signal being grounded when the pedal is NOT depressed. If you try and use the controller slider for any reason the 12 volts coming from the controller is shorted to chassis and either blows the fuse or burns up wiring. The brake pedal switch has 5 wires and i need a schematic to determine if the switch is the ground path and if so WHY is it grounded when pedal is released. Any info would be appreciated.

I don't think I understand. The output of the controller either auto or manual (slider) should go to the eclectic brakes (blue wire) not the brake sw.

What Brake controller are you using?
04 Horizon QD, 12 Ford Flex, Excalibar, Brake-Pro, ,, Winter Texan, RVin! since 1974
