This is usually solved by a brake light relay, such as the one from Roadmaster that I mention earlier.

Thanks to all that replied. I went with the solution Sky Boss used. It should be at the house today. Hope to start taking the trim out of the car tomorrow evening to run the wire through the inside of the car. Found a good video on how to take the trim out of the back of the CRV but cant find any on the other trim.
Sky Boss- did the trim along the bottom of the interir just snap off?

Yes...give me a couple days, I have a plan to upload my videos to Vimeo. I might get them on line tonight if things go well.

Wiring from MC combines brake and turn. Blue OX has wiring diagram that basically ignores the turn signals on toad and uses toad brake lights as brake and turn.
Seems straight forward but... if I am correct when the suplemental brake presses my brake the turn signal would quite blinking.
Have I missed something? How do others get around this?

THanks for any help!

What is meant by 'MC" ?

Well I finally took the interior apart and installed the wiring. I am glad I went with the Tow Daddy system. It was easy to install and thank you Sky Boss for the recommendation!

Much better than messing around with a brake relay!

First, my sincere apologies for not getting you some video. I am in the middle of stripping my house, moving into my MH, running garage sales and all stuff related. I don't even have a table left in the house. LOL

I'm gonna get that done some time.

Good luck and so far I am very pleased with how my set up has worked. Don't forget to find an answer to your license plate light. Also, keep in mind that the middle brake light above the hatch is not controlled by TD. It will come on when your brake peddle activates it. In my case that seems to happen when my coach is about 1/2-1/3 depressed. I haven't had a chance to tweak the brake light switch on the CRV to match.

Finally, I installed the fuse bypass switch in the coin holder. The dash plugs next to the traction control switch are not simple plastic plugs you can drill through. The coin holder puts the switch out of sight and is a perfect fit for the assembly. Getting the dash apart isn't terribly hard but it takes some patience. I think it might be possible to actually drill the hole without removing the dash but I did it anyway to make sure it would fit in it and to confirm nothing was behind it.
