Electric brake wires '02 DSDP

2002 DSDP need to add trailer brake controller for the motorcycle trailer. Manual says there are a red and orange wire near the fuse box for this. Is that box under the dash or out front with the gen?

Most have been up under dash coiled up possibly where the CB wiring was also.
Could be left or right of steering column if you have fuse panel access on top of dash may see in there also.

It is under the dash on the left side of the steering column.

Found them right were you suggested. 2 red and one brown. The reds are two different sizes and are marked power for tow vehicle, the tan one is marked speed sensor or something. No ground. I am wanting to hook up an electric trailer brake controller for my enclosed motorcycle trailer. The one in my truck had a wire to the brake light and the 12v hot and ground into the unit and the power going back to the 7 pin plug. I am not sure I have the right wires and is there a fuse that needs to be put in to allow power to these wires? 2002 DSDP.

Wires should be ready to go. They would be prewired from the fuse box. You could for safety put an inline fuse if you wanted.

I would give Newmar a call and ask them if your Coach is pre-wired for this. My 2000 MADP did not have the pre wiring. Is you 7 pin trailer plug in the rear of the Coach wired for brakes? You should find about a #10 blue wire for the braking I think front and rear of Coach.

I have a 7 pin in the rear and manual shows it. Not finding any colors other than all gray at the pin it self. Found the acc 12v in front just need to find the big blue one for the elec brakes and the brake light wire to tap into for the controller....help heading thru the mountains soon and think I need the trailer brakes working.

This is what I bought due to no wires on mine and the problem of having to run wires from front to rear, no taping into wiring system or wiring to do , plug and play.......works super....

Thanks, I am hoping to find the wires but that is a real neat option, costly but better than running wires that far.

Well after further review I did not have all 7 wires in the rear so I did order the Prodigy RF unit.

Whats nice, you can pull the trailer with other autos and have brakes , just plug the transmitter into cigarette lighter and a quick set up and go in anything that can tow it.
