Monaco trailer wiring and brake controller

I have a 95 Monaco Dynasty. I plan on pulling a trailer with a Jeep on it. Can any tell me if there is any factory wiring for trailer lights and a brake controller. If there is not I can hard wire in and run wiring from the front to the back for the brake controller but I would hate to do this if there is already wiring there. If there is no wiring for the lights, can I hard wire into the tail lights to wire the trailer.
Thank You for any help

There should be brake/stop light plug near the hitch. If not it shouldn't be that hard to find the proper wires and use a "wiring kit" with diodes for hook-up.
We have an '04 Monaco (Beaver) and understand brake controller wiring from the factory was after our year model. We did it for a US Gear system and with a handful of nylon "ties" it took some time but not that hard to do.

If you order the US Gear Unified Tow Brake system it will come with the wiring harness. I also ran the wires under the motorhome for solar panels and found plenty of room to run all of the wiring under the MH. The only restriction was having to raise the motorhome up to clear my belly.

Good luck

Monaco trailer wiring and brake controller

Thank you for the info but I ended up just hard wiring in a brake controller and the trailer wiring. I went to a salvage yard and cut out a factory plug from a Dodge truck and wired it into wiring under the dash. I then unplugged the brake controller out of my truck and plugged it into the plug in out of the Dodge truck in the coach. I can now use one brake controller for two vehicles. I then used my rope that I left in the pipe under the coach from wiring in a pyrometer and pulled my wire for the trailer brakes from the front to the back. I also pulled another rope through the pipe with the wire just in case I need to pull any more wires through. I now have trailer lights and trailer brakes.
Thank You again Chris
