I wonder if anyone can help here.

I want to install a Primus brake controller on my 2007 Bounder. The bounder is on a Ford Chassis.

The dealer I orderd the brake controller from sent me a generic harness for wiring into the coaches wiring system. From the same dealer I was sent a prewired harness for hooking the controller to my Silverado. That was very easy.

Now the question is, does anyone know if the Ford Chassis has a similar 'easy' block for installing a wiring harness to the controller or do I have to hunt and peck for wires under the dash and rear of the RV ??

Thanks for your help.

Yup, plug and play. Same connector is under the dash somewhere as all the other late model Ford stuff. Google will find someone who's done it in their pickup or van.

On my '04 Winnebago, the hitch end was the hard part, I had to convert to a 7 pin connector and finsh the wiring that Ford leaves at the back of the frame.

On my Newmar when I take the panel off the top of the dash the pigtail is all ready pluged into the harness and ready to hook up to a brake control. The wires on the pigtail are all marked as to where they go on the brake control.

I located the grey plug taped up next to my steering column, everything was prewired. I had found a brake controller plug in the bag with my Winnie stuff. Just matched everything up with the cotroller and plugged in. Also in the rear (underneath) next to the spare tire was a wiring harness all wrapped up. All the lighting wires were labeled and a 10 ga Blue wire for the power to the 7 prong trailer connector.
