Smile Toad light wiring

Bought a BlueOx braking system. Obviously it activates the brake light lights. What I was wondering is it a complicated job to wire my 2007 CRV lights for signalling and park lights.

Kind of depends on the car. After a little research I bought an "additional bulb" type kit for my 2005 Honda Odyssey. It does not cut into the existing toad wiring at all, but does require room in the taillight fixture to drill a hole and install an additional bulb. Then it is a simple matter of routing the wiring from the front of the toad to the rear. The kit I bought online came with installation instructions including recommendation on exactly where to install the bulb in the Honda taillight fixture.

Agree with AFchap. I purchased light sockets at Napa for 2 element bulbs and installed on my 2013 crv and had plenty room to drill necessary holes for the sockets. I know blue ox has this as a kit as well

Not the cheapest way to go, but probably the easiest: Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring for the Honda CR-V, 2007

Unplug the connector at the taillight, and plug this in-between the car side and tail light side of the connector.

The most simple and non invasive method is to put your lights on a bar of sorts the will fit into a hitch receiver. Mount a hitch receiver on your toad and connector that wires to the front of the toad for the umbilical cord that plugs into the coach. You can unplug and remove the bar at will, when not in use. I once helped a friend with this setup, but using a hitch haul for mounting the lights, that went on the back of his wrangler toad. I like this even better for some vehicles, as it can also haul your bicycles or extra cargo.

I just purchased a KIA SOUL and for a moment or so I considered wiring it myself. Then, I thought about crawling around under my new TOAD, running and connecting wires, and all of the other things that had to be done.
And, I left it a a CAMPING WORLD. They installed a standard harness with all of the right connections, and installed an unobtrusive yet sturdy 6-pin connector on the front of the car.
The price was reasonable, and I didn't hurt myself in any way.
