If the needed wiring is up front under the dash, by the steering column, and the trailer 7 pin socket in the rear is wired, it should be easy to install a brake controller. If not, like my Mountain Aire, it did not come pre-wired, I bought this wireless controller https://www.etrailer.com/Brake-Contr...sha/90250.html , it has worked like a champ for years now!
One thing that is really nice about it, is that once installed on the trailer, any tow vehicle without a brake controller can just take the cab controller, plug it in to the 12v dash outlet, and good to go......that simple.

Here is another thread on this subject Are All Newmars Set Up for Brake Controllers?
You are going to have to get under the dash and do some looking/searching.

sallisawfire-

This iRV2 thread should be useful for you.

Additionally, here's a Google search for iRV2 posts with the terms "Kountry Star" and "brake controller" in them.
