Although the Sprinter chassis might have connector for the installation of a brake controller, our brake controller manufacturers don't show a listing for your vehicle. If your MH came with a 7-way at the rear bumper, it might possibly be pre-wired for a brake controller. You'd want to check with Tiffin to see if this is the case, and if so, find out which plug-and-play brake controller wiring harness is needed.

If there is no 7-way, you'll need to do a hardwire install. The first step would be to choose a brake controller. You can't go wrong with a proportional controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The controller is very easy to use, which makes it one of our most popular brake controllers.

To install the controller, you'll need our Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. The kit contains just about everything you'll need to install the controller, including an adapter to convert the existing 4-pole to a 7-way, hardware, wire and circuit breakers. Due to the fact that a Motorhome will be longer than a passenger vehicle or a truck, you'll need some extra wire, part # 10-2-1.

I've linked you to an install video, as well as to some install instructions for the ETBC7 kit.
