LOL, PirateCamper, it sounds like you've got yourself a 'hippy' rig (all kinds of lights when the brakes are on)! Good luck - hope you got it for a real good price!

it is useful information that will help you stay alive.
And yes, you can wire it to two separate 110V ckts that may help for what you are doing, and serve you well.
Most modern homes are wired this way. ( 2 separate 110V ckts out of phase when combined make the 220V for stuff in the house, like water heater, dryer, etc )
( unless your using 440 3 phase )

Keep in mind also that your 50 amp service actually will let you use up to 100 amps. Depending on how the breakers are wired, each side of the panel has a 50 amp breaker.
Mine has AC1 and 2 on one leg along with microwave. the other leg has water heater and washer/dryer. Lighting and such is distributed between the two circuits.

As to your taillights, I'd start by checking how any trailer or towed wiring was added. sounds like it is not proper and causing the disco lighting effect.
