RE: Winnebago Adventurer 35U 2001 Ford V10.
I need to add a brake controller to this unit that has a 6 wire trailer plug at the hitch. It apperars that there is an open pin that perhaps I can utilize.
Is there any extra wires pulled in this chassie that I could find and use that run from front to back?
How do I find the 12+ and - , the brake light switch wireing and the extra useable wire if there is one?
The diagrams on the Winnebago site don't cover such things.

Grafur,

I noticed you joined iRV2 today and this is your second post. Let me be the first to welcome you to iRV2, we're really glad to have you here as a new member and are looking forward to reading your posts about your RVing experiences and adventures. You'll find a great bunch of folks on this site who are very knowledgeable of RVing, the rigs we use, and the places we go in them.

I'll place a 'shortcut' link to your question in the Winnebago Owner's Forum where it might attract some additional answers specific to your rig.

As you'll see, they're eager to help and share their knowledge and experiences with others.

Again, welcome to iRV2, we're glad you joined.

I don't know. I had Camping World install my brake controller on my Ford V10. It works great but I don't know what they had to do to install it. On my Dodge Durango I was told it is already wired so adding the controller is quite easy.

Others can probably give you a better answer.

Good luck.

Yes indead it can be relativly simple I installed a Prodogy into my 2000 F-150 and found that it was already prewired under the dash and all I had to do was hook it up and mount it Worked great good luck

Grafur, depending on what you will be towing you may need to install a 7 pin connector to match the trailer. You WILL have to run the brake wire from the front to the rear and do a complete install on the brake controller; the coach is not factory wired for one. A 12 volt test probe can identify the wiring already present at the 6 pin connector. Good luck and welcome to iRV2.com.
