Electric Brake Sender Unit

Has anyone installed one of these electric brake sender units on an AC Tradition that could give me some advice for wiring. I am told that they sometimes run an extra unused wire from the front of the coach to the back that could be used for the brake signal. If I try to call to get wire numbers and locations is it a (Spartan) chassis question or a (Fleetwood AC) coach manufacturer question?

Also, with air brakes, where can I get the signal to the rear stop lights?

Any help would be appreciated as I have been putting it off for a while now but must get it done by next week.

Not specific to your coach or chassis. Start at the trailer wiring plug at the rear and follow the wires forward looking for an unattached wire that is part of the same bundle. That will probably be your trailer brake wire. Hopefully it will be the same color under your dash. Otherwise contact Spartan for color and location.

I called spartin when I installed my controller they told me there should be a purple wire from the trailer socket to under the dash Mine did not have the wire I have a older unit so I had to run a wire from the socket all the way up to the dash. For the brake wire I tapped in to the turn signal loom at the socket under the dash there is a brake wire there.
