Hi there.If you're referring to how to run the wires from inside the cab to the engine compartment, some professionals will run the wires though the bulkhead/firewall using any existing empty cavity in the factory connector. Other accepted installations include drilling a hole through the bulkhead/firewall and installing a grommet/seal so the wires can be run through without suffering any damage to their insulation - some aftermarket kits might include these grommets.Instructions on how power and ground are connected should be included with the brake control package, but, if missing, I could provide that information as well - just let me know the type, brand and model number of the electric brake control you're trying to install.

When I look-up 47210 Hopkins what comes up is a 7-blade trailer connector, not a module. Is that correct?
