Trailering car & golf cart issue

I just bought a new 20' steel car hauler with dual brakes to carry my 08 vette and EZ-Go golf cart due to wife needing cart at CG's because of medical conditions and I would like to have vette at some locations. I already have my 2005 Itasca Meridian setup to haul our Jeep 4 down. Can I hook up a brake controller for trailer to same harness (trailer brake controller) on my freightliner chassis that my Unified Tow Brake system for the Jeep is on? A/B type switch? Anyone make a harness to adapt both?

Trailer wt: 1600 / 7000 capacity
Vette wt: 3300
Golf Cart wt: 600
Jeep: 4500
RV: 10000 capacity

2005 Itasca Meridian 39F, 2005 Grand Cherokee, Blue Ox Adventa tow bar, US Gear Brake system

The Unified Tow Brake is not a trailer brake controller, so that can't be used.

I wouldnt be surprised if you have a wire harness for an electric brake controller already in your coach. Is there a 7 pin plug at back of your coach? If so you may very well find a blank plug at dash area for an electric brake controller.
