I'm thinking that I should add something to let people behind the trailer to know your backing up. From the factory, you get two large oval red led lights. I want to add a backup alarm and at least 2 white lights to the trailers. They are all 7 pin round connections to the truck. How should I go about adding reverse lights so that they come on when the truck is in reverse? Thanks!:hammerhead:

I thought about doing that some time ago, but went a little different way.....

I hooked up work lights on the back of my truck and the back of my track-hoe trailer and run them each off a switch on the dash. I wanted a little more choice as to when they were to be used, and have found this to work pretty good for me. The toggles on the dash each have a light on them (that glows orange when they are on) so I don't forget they are on....
