Toad connections

Just purchased a CR-V from a now deceased PO. The car is immacuate and everything is great but...I can't figure how the PO wired the lights, turn signals etc.
Also I have previously used a Brake Buddy in other toads and this car shows no signs of wear from installing and removing the device. So how can I tell if there is a on board built in system to electrically activate the brakes?

It would have to have diodes usually installed behind the tail light assy. or a stand alone system. With the stand alone you would see an extra bulb that would not light up with your regular car lights. As for the supplemental braking look at the brake pedal area and see if you see a cable attached somewhere. If you do there will be other components located somewhere. We usually try to put the actuator under the driveer seat. How many wires are in the power cord going from the motorhome to the toad? If only four I doubt if you will find any braking system.

On the subject of toad wiring and diodes....this just happened on my toad. All was working well then all of a sudden nothing. I have checked the connections on both the motorhome(make sure there's power when there's suppose to be..brake, running, turn), I checked the ground and the inlet on the Car(Saturn)......all this checks out so my question is, could it be that the diodes have burnt out? I havent had the light assemblies apart again....just wondering if thats a common problem?
