Installing a electronic brake controller

Does anybody know if a 2005 Winnebago Vectra on a Freightliner chassis has a plug in connection for a brake controller?

Our Itasca Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT is, basically a sister ship to your Vectra. And, what I can tell you is, while cruising around under the dash, working on other projects, I found a wire or two, labeled "trailer brake" etc. And, if I recall, I also found one in the electrical compartment, left front, just in front of the left front tire. There's a zillion miles of wires etc. in that compartment but, if you look around a bit, you should find the same wire(s). Sorry, that's about all I can help with.
