I have a new 2008 XC chassis under a Phaeton motorhome and want to add an electric brake module but cant find the wiring harness. I was told that Freightliner usually leaves it upfront but so far I can find it.

Any ideas on where it may be? Or what it looks like?

Thanks

Don

Don - ours was front-left near the floor in our coach. The location might depend on the house builder. If you don't get a good answer here, check on the Tiffen forums.

It's underneath the dash. They are hard to find. I found mine the other day when I had the dash out to add some other things. They're usually a short whip out of one of the major wiring looms.

Don,
On my Winnebago I found it under the dash shroud. Here is a link to a post I had done previously with pictures. Hope if helps. Good luck.

If the link doesn't work, do a search for "2007 Journey Pre-wired Trailer Brake plug"

After 3 attempts and looking at the other photos as well as a call to tiffin, I still cant find it. I laid under there 20 minutes last night alone looking and cant find that plug. There are so many wire looms in such a tight space it makes seeing anything tough. This time I even got a wide spread LED flashlight to help the search but yet still nothing. Tiffin thought it would be on the left side of the steering wheel but wasnt sure.

Oh well maybe I will pull the instrument panle off and look down from the top next.

So, Don...did you ever find the harness? I'm looking for mine too! Doesn't seem to be where the US Gear people think it should be. Got your 20 minutes beat.

No I never did find it. I even called Tiffin while crawling around under the dash. I had to make a trip pulling the trailer without it and now I think Ihave decided I dont even need the brakes anyway. It is only a 7-14' all aluminum trailer so empty it is about 1600lbs then add a bike or three it gets maybe up to 3000lbs at the very worst. I could not even tell it was there so I may quit looking
