Brake wire

Still trying to find the brake wire so I can hook up a controller to my 2011 Knight. I can get power and ground, but having trouble finding the wire that is suppose to be wired in. Today I'll try and go directly to the brake peddle. I'll also run a 12g blue wire to the back of the RV.

I am surprised that your coach is not pre-wired for the controller. My 2012 was and it was easy to find. It was marked and coiled up to the left of the steering column.

Mine should be the same as yours. Tell me just where you found the wire. Under the left side I see a 6 wire connector. All white wires. If I could only find the hot wire from the brake peddle, I' could do this even if I need to run a new wire to the back.

There is a group of 5 white wires. As I remember there was a tag on the group stating they were for the trailer brake controller. I don't remember there being any connector on the group. Each wire is labeled what it's for every few inches the full length of the wire. The top of my dashboard pops off making it easy to find the wires, does yours?

All Roadmaster chassis were prewired for trailer brakes which can be used for toad brakes. The connector may be under the dash, but also may be inside of the left console (under the trans controller) where I found mine in our 08 Safari. Using this connector, you don't need to run any additional wiring for the toad. You may have to get a adapter from the brake controller's manufacture to mate up with the Roadmaster connecter.

Good luck.
