Toad remote brake light

I use a Air Force One brake system and would like to have a remote light in the MH that shows when the brake system is applied. I do have a light mounted on the tow bar but I must have the rear view camera on and take my eyes off the road to see it. Does anyone have knowledge of a wireless light that I could stick somewhere on the dash? I don't feel like running wires the length of the coach for a light. And, it would be one more thing to plug in when hooking up or disconnecting. All the wires in the six plug wiring connector are utilized so there are no extras. Wireless makes sense. But will it work? Seems I remember of some brake systems offering them in the past, but an Internet search didn't find me any.

Are you positive all 6 wires are being used? For example, is the contact that would be used for a brake controller in use? On my rv it was not and the wire ran to the dash area on the rv already. So I just back feed that line to the dash area to activate a small light.

Yep. Brake controller already has wires running from the dash to the plug, and you only need a single hot one. The ground is common. You can get a small red 12v led at Radio Shack and put it anywhere convenient on the dash. I've done 2 Tiffin RV's that way and they've both worked great.
