I found out by trial and error. I tried to wire the Equinox the same way I did our old Saturn Vue, and it didn't work. It was very frustrating because I kept getting different results. That was because sometimes it was less than 10 minutes, and I was getting voltage on certain wires; but later, lights wouldn't work because I had closed the door and 10 minutes had passed.

Some auxiliary toad brake systems need a signal from the toad's brake light switch in order to operate the monitor in the motorhome that indicates the toad brakes are being applied. Fortunately, ours doesn't; but if yours does, you will need to install a second brake light switch in the Equinox to provide this signal because of the fact the Equinox brake lights shut down after 10 minutes.

Paz, where did you gain access in the body to bring wiring through. I need to get my "break-away" switch wire and 2-conductor cable for my 12v dedicated Rvibrake. I have looked at some possible solutions offered by members but I don't feel comfortable with them. The firewall is out of the question so might consider the floor near the seat. If I knew how to remove the panel by the emergency brake and the driver door sill cover I might be able to drill through the floor there. I found a good location for my switch to switch fuse #32 and wired that up yesterday (to the left of the glove. Had to lengthen the wires). I have installed the break-away switch and 7 pin connector to the Roadmaster base plate now have my fingers crossed that it will fit. My buddy and I are installing the base plate and plug-and-play wiring harness next week.
Regards, Moe
Sorry if I'm interfering with someone elses thread.
