The latest news is I went back to the original owner of the truck and he surpirised me by handing me the brake box along with the seven pin plug/ mount. Then I went to a friends garage and he said he will put the truck up on a rack and will trace all the original wires and will re- install what the owner gave me. This is going to cost me 100.00. Can't beat that huh?

Today I went and bought what looks like a lesser quality seven pin plug to replace the old one. It was tricky moving the wires to the new location. So thats one more fix. Here's a picture of the old one I used just in case I forgot the color sequence. But I made it alright with out the picture.
I have also included a shot of the door sticker that shows the stats of the truck itself.
Can you tell me what it means? Like the weight and the axle size?
Thanks, I really need to be educated with this.

Rear axle size is a 8.8 inch. The gear ratio is on a tag on the rear axle. If you are under the truck between the rear axle and bumper looking forward the tag is on the right hand side of the gear cover. It will have a 3.55 or 4.10 or 3.73 something like that . That number is the gear ratio. Quite likely the first diget will be obscured by the bolt holding the tag to the axle housing. If that is the case you will see a .55 or a .10 or a .73. Also if the axle is a locker there will be an L, as in 3L.55 or 4L.10. Rear GAWR is the rear axle rating, yours is 3166 lbs. GVWR is the rating of the entire truck, yours is 5450 lbs. Adios, John

Below is a link to help you decode your vehicle door jamb sticker - your axle code = 19, looks to have been built with a 3.55 ratio non-LS (not limited slip).

Vehicle Door Jamb Sticker Decoding Page

Lots of good Ford truck forums out there to help you learn about your truck.

You've already found the best Airstream forum!

Best wishes and enjoy the journey!

When it turned out that our '01 Dodge truck didn't have trailer wiring at all, I bought a prefab harness from the dealer and installed it myself. Lotsa crawling under the truck, but not a bad job.

The controller wiring also wasn't pre-installed in the truck, so after many conversations with a dealer who said I just wasn't looking in the right place, I Googled "Brake Controller Install" and got some great instructions. It's been more than two years, so I don't remember exactly where I found them.

A four-pin trailer plug only runs the lights, so make sure you have wires under the truck for the seven-pin setup.
