    i think that red goes to your brake light switch and blue is for the trailer brakes.

    thanks, that was what I thought, but I wanted to get someone that agreed before I just stared hooking it up....I'm assuming I can just splice into my brake light wire?

    Have you checked other manufacturer's websites? I was at one the other day (drawtite I think) and they had wiring diagrams for a ton of vehicles. Also, you might want to check a store that carries wiring accessories- The plug-in harnesses or controllers themselves might have something on the back or in the instructions.
