2008 cOLORADO

We just purchased an 2008 Chevy Colorado to tow the Casita. I am ready to install the brake controller. My truck is not prewired for trailer brakes, but has an 30 fuse for the trailer brake. My question does anyone know what color and where the wire from the fuse box, and what color wire on the brake switch do I connect the controller to?
Thank you for your help.

That was the perfect link. I also found out NEVER probe or mess with a wire that has a yellow tag as that is part of the air bag system.
Though on my fuse panel there is a breaker in place and labeled for a brake controller.
With this link I will finish wiring the Colorado this weekend as we ( maybe I ) will be camping Halloween weekend and following Wisconsin 35 south to Alma. That road has the steepest grades around and will be a great way to see how the Colorado handles the Casita.

thanks Carol for the help when I googled I did not find that site.
