You did three lights, shouldn't miss them when you stop!

You can either find the wire running to other side marker lights or the tail lights.

I replace the 3rd brake light right after we bought this RV. It was pink and no one could see it. Plus I put the motorcycle flasher on it.

I ordered a Demco wiring harness for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Reason being I didnot want to mess around with the original wiring in the Jeep., the diodes are already installed at the factory. It was plug and play which reached to the front on the Jeep. I have the large plug on the Gulf Stream Tourmaster 45g all I needed was the 4 wire adapter.
I also had the Airforce 1 air braking system installed. Very pleased with both.

As mentioned, find the nearest applicable wiring harness and tap into it. I have not mounted my lights yet, however, on mine, the rear harness is extremely easy to access behind the cap by removing the radiator grill. For my additional turn lights, those will be mounted on the side of my rig on the front cap, I have several inches cap which runs along each side, my front turn light harness is right there and easy to access also.

As an aside, I was following a tractor without a trailer attached last night. He had, in addition to the DOT required lights, three brake/tail lights on each side of the cab and so many marker lights on each side and the front, I could not count them all.

I completed two of the rear lights, had to build a wiring harness but it was a fun job. Unfortunately, I cannot make the picture take to this site, hopefully the link will work.

In the picture, the lights appear off-center due to the angle of the camera, but they are each six inches from the range of each side wall. I had to cut slits in a rubber membrane which runs from the back wall of the cabin area to inside the cap rear wall. Assume it is there to limit dirt and fumes from penetrating into the coach living area. Next I will be installing some side turn lights and now that I have access to the inside the top of the cap, a couple of turn/stop lights mounted up higher.
