    They make a plug in harness. There is a spot for it in your panel. No wire splicing is necessary. Think it was 8 bucks? Got it at a RV place.

    If you have the factory pigtail that plugs in under the dash, than it should tell you which wire is what. The brake controller should also have a pigtail with a wire schematic. Compare the two and hook up the wires based on what they are.........from my experience the color coding is different between the truck harness and the controller harness.
