Installed Brake Controller

I bought a Tekonshsha P3 and started searching for the wiring on our 2004 Gulfstream Crescendo. After searching for more time than I care to admit under the dash in 97 degree temps, I found a wire loom under the dash all the way to the left that appeared empty, but peeling back the loom, saw that it contained 4 wires each marked on the insulation as to which they were (trailer brake, stop lamp, etc...). Each had a mini-bullet connector on it. I just cut off those and crimped butt connectors to the Tekonsha harness. Worked like a champ.

Thought you might want to know. It took me longer to find the wires than to do the entire install/test.

I spent three or four afternoons after I got off work looking for the same wires as you. I called Freightliner twice and they said where they were located when the chassis left the factory ... after that it was up to the motor home manufacture what they did with them. Like you, once I located them 10-15 minutes and I was done.
