Brake Controller Hook Up

I am trying to find the wires that control the brake lights on a 2002 Winnebago DL pusher. Since it has air brakes I know there has to be somewhere it converts to an electrical signal for the brake lights to work. Does anyone know where to find the wire to connect the brake light wire.

It is a 32 foot Winnwbago Diesel Journey DL. Model# 32CK94345

Brake Controller Hook Up

Look underneath the coach where the brake pedal is mounted through the floor. You will see an air brake valve with air lines connected to it. There should be air activated brake lite switch screwed into the side of it. Hope that helps.

use a meter

I think there is power there all the time. Not sure though. Get a volt meter and check for voltage on each of the screws to ground. If both do not have voltage then turn the key on and check again. the one with out voltage is the side you want to use as that is the one that turns on the lights. there are two sets of contacts of the brake plunger.

While your there working in the area, lube up the inside under the pedal plunger to keep it well lubed. Mine was sticking a few month ago and the damn lights kept going on and off. not any more since I lube it. wd40 or pb3.
