    HI monty, there should be a wiring harness tucked up under the dash to connect the brake controller to, you can get a pigtail adapter from any rv or trailer service center, the only differnce I am aware of but I'm no Chev expert, is GM uses a new style fuse in the power dist. box under the hood and you may have to go to the deal for a fuse, as I don't think the parts houses have them yet. A big welcome to the forum. :) :laugh: :cool: :bleh: :approve:

    Gary: Not on the 2003 they want you to buy a part they call it. my 2002 had thewiring harness you spoke of, but the 2003 does not. they changed the wiring also in the 2003. even had a little blurb extra piece of paper informing of such. i did a search thru google and only put in the part number abnd walla up came with a solution. change the slots of the connector on my brake controller harness swap a and d. did that and it worked. although i didnt have a wire in d. but all works ok. thanks for reply.......i was gonna call my son in law at austin leisure rentals for answre but i got it... thanks
