New (to us) toad/dinghy with unified brake

We just bought a 2013 Spark with a Unified (according to seller) installed. I have found the vacuum pump (under hood) and the servo (under seat) and am still looking for the controller.

The seller said that the company was out of business but I am not sure. It appears that the system will use the output of my MH brake controller and all I have to do is figure out the wiring from the plug on the grill. So if anyone has info or schematics for this system it would be great. Seems to be a nice system.

Thanks,

John.

Mr. D,

Yep, that's it: UTB-1000. Of course I don't have any of the stuff from the MH side. I have found the "Vacuum Pump" and the "Electric Solenoid". I have to now find the "Power Module". It would be nice if I could change to the newer system that uses my existing trailer brake controller. But this is a good start!!!

thanks for the help
john.

The power module is normally mounted under the dash. It is a black box about 2x3 inches with a small 2 wire white plug and 5 or 6 wires with spade connectors.

Just found it with mirror and a flashlight! Whoopie!!!! Now to find the controller for the MH. Too bad I can't use my existing brake controller. I just sent a message to the company to see what they say. According to their website the controller is $450.00 (ouch!).

Thanks again all, two days in and you all have helped me figure out the system and a path to making it work. Maybe my old brake buddy can stay home
