2001 Itasca Horizon brake controller wiring hookup

Where is the best location for connecting the 20/30amp circuit needed to supply the trailer brakes? I have the stoplight, ground and wiring to the rear plug routed, just need the feed for the input to the controller. My MH doesn't have the prewired brake controller hookup like the later year models have.

Thanks.

i used one of 2 accessory lugs on the bottom of the under hood fuse box. per the DEXTER brake controller instructions i bought an automatic reset fuse at an auto parts store. i think it was 30 amp.
did you find a wire for the electric brakes under the dash or did you run your own wire from the dash to the rear of the moho?

I ran a 12ga wire all the way back. Mine is a freightliner chassis diesel pusher. Thanks.

Where did you hook up your stop light wire?

I came off of one of the brake air pressure switches under the coach under the brake pedal underneath the cab area. Using a 12v test light, find one that is powered when the brake is depressed, worked great.

you should update your signature box with info about your moho.
my moho has a light plug already installed and wired on the receiver hitch. the "stop light" wire is one of those, if memory serves it is pink.
i had to run a new wire from the cab to the rear of my moho for the "electric brake" actuating wire for my dolly.
