Well, I found the blue wire that runs to the rear of the coach, and now I am wiring the controller up at the cockpit. Instructions call to connect one wire to the "cold side" of the brake switch. I look at the brake switch at the pedal and there are two plugs - one with two brown wires, and one plug with three wires - blue, white and orange. Anyone know which wire to connect too? Is the electrical wiring diagram available anywhere on the web?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave... if you have a test light or a volt meter you can find the "cold" side by grounding the neg. clip and touching each plug with the pos. probe. when the light in on that's the hot side-touch the other plug and the light will be off(not burning)-with the probe still inserted,depress the brake pedal and the light will come on. a volt meter works the same except you have to hold the probe and look at the meter face and read the voltage. hope this helps...

Joe,

Thanks for the info. About a half hour after my post I used the search function on irv2 and found my answer - it is the blue wire! Brakes worked lik a champ.
