Locating Brake Controller Connector on 2004 Winnebago Minnie on Ford E450 Cutaway Chassis

Question:

nd I have a 30 2004 Minnie Winebago with a Ford 450 front. It has a Prodigy electric brake controller with the leftside wheel and a blue button on the right side. If it has a trailer connector on the back what should I look for?

Expert Reply:

I assume you are looking for the connector under the dash to plug the Prodigy into, is that correct?

Finding the brake controller connectors on those cutaway chassis E450 models can be challenging. When Ford sends them to out to aftermarket, they are used for several different vehicles, like RVs, ambulances, moving vans, delivery trucks, etc. During this process the under-dash wiring can be moved around as accessories are added.

There might be more than one connector under the dash, the challenge will be to find the right one. Follow the link I provided to the brake controller wiring adapter. Take a look at the brown connector on the end of the wiring adapter. You will be looking for a gray connecter under the dash that would mate up with the plug on the wiring adapter, typically to the left of the steering column. To confirm you have the correct connector, you can use a circuit tester like part # 40376 and probe the pins on the connector. If you have the right connector, you should find that one pin shows a constant 12-volts, and another should only show voltage when the brake pedal is pressed.
