'09 saturn VUE wiring

I am attempting to wire my '09 Vue. I decided to go the isolation diode route. I use a brake buddy on the toad. Does anyone have any idea what will happen when the MH powers the stop lights and the brake buddy (pressing on the brake pedal) causes the car to do the same? How will the car lights react?

Let me update my own question.

I simulated the question using 2 battery chargers, an isolation diode, and a 12 Volt tail light. When I applied voltage from both chargers through the isolation diode the bulb got slightly brighter. I guess it was because the chargers did not put out exactly the same voltage. One put out 11.7 V and the other 12.7V. At this point I think I have nothing to fear from both vehicles feeding the same light.
