Brake Controller and Install Port Location for 2018 Thor ACE Motorhome Built on F-53 Chassis


Hi, we just purchased a brand new Motorhome and it is a 2018 ACE on a F-53 chassis with the new 6 speed transmission.. The coach came with a hitch and already wired with big plug for the trailer.. What I would like to know is do you know the location of the factory plug for brake control unit and what adapter harness I will need to go from the connector Thanks


Expert Reply:

The correct brake controller adapter for a Tekonsha brake controller in your 2018 ACE motorhome built on a 2017 Ford F-53 is the part # 3035-P which plugs into a port located near the emergency brake pedal as shown in the linked photo.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer brakes. This will be the last brake controller you buy. It can easily be transferred to future vehicles as well.
