Trailer brake wiring

I have a 06 CRD and it didn't come with the trailer hitch. I installed a class III hitch and now I'm working on the wiring. I chose to go with all aftermarket components for this project. I bought a T-One connector which will take care of my basic trailer light wiring. That's about a 20 minute job. Now I have to run a #10 red, #10 white and #12 blue up to the front of the vehicle to interface with my brake controller and battery. From what I've gathered from reading up on several forums there is no factory wiring installed for in my Jeep. I don't have the EVIC module (for some reason if you do then you have the trailer wiring from the factory). Does anyone know if the 30amp trailer tow fuse under the hood goes anywhere? I plan to use that fuse but I don't want to tear into the fuse panel if there is already a wire coming off it that I can use. Also, is that fuse meant to be used for the brake controller or for the 12V aux power. I know how to wire brake controllers and trailers, I just want to do it the right way and the easiest way.

Thanks

I have read that there is a wire behind the drivers side kick panel that has a tab on it marked trailer brakes.

It's wierd that there is no mention of any wires for tralier brakes in the manual. I'll take a look under that panel anyway.

thanks

You might try doing a search for the wire in this forum's search tab. I think it was on here a while back where a guy had pictures of it. It was behind a couple clusters of wires, by itself, and I believe it was blue or maybe purple, but it had a piece of tape on it and it was clearly marked.
