...Do double check this if you get a chance because I'm going off of memory here (which is not as impressive as it used to be). I don't recall if the ignition was on in the coach, which may be preventing the constant 12v power to the 7-pin connector.
Done. The center stop light does, indeed, illuminate when the Jeep's brakes are applied even when the TV is connected and running. So... they may not come on at exactly the same time (depending on when the TV brake lights illuminate vs. when deceleration causes whatever braking system you're using activates the toad brakes), but while actively braking all three Jeep lights will be on.
I hear what you're saying about the memory not being what it used to be... I tell people I've got a mind like a steel sieve... half of what goes in runs right out.
Hopefully this eases your OCD a mite. :-)
