Backup Lights Instead of Brake Lights

My 2013 Ford Explorer was wired by Allen's RV Center in Branson, MO. The brake lights didn't even work until I grounded a wire at the MH 7 pin connector that was not grounded correctly. Now the toad's backup lights come on instead of the brake lights. I'm pretty sure they used diodes because Allen told me his installer was having a hard time wiring them and that he had to help him. Some help!!!!

Anybody have this happen before?

Steve

Steve-

Do the Explorer's lights work correctly when it's not hooked to the coach?

Here's are two diagrams on how things should be wired:

Use the one that applies to your situation.

Yes the lights on the Explorer work fine when not connected to MH. Thanks for the diagrams. I will check them out and see what's going on.
