We removed one of the main power feed nuts on the fuse panel, and with a ring connector, got power to the Circuit breaker, to feed to controller.

From here, the blue wire from the brake controller is simply ran through the firewall from under the dash, down under the truck, to the Trailer plug at the back of the Van
Make sure the wire is out of harms way when you run it to the back.
