Toad towing behind 2004 Alpine Avalanche

We have a 2005 Saturn Vue as a toad vehicle and we are using a Roadmaster hitch. Our motorhome is a 40' 2004 Alpine Avalanche. The motorhome is a 6 pin converted to a 7 and the car has a big round 7 that plugs into it and steps back down to a six. Whew..... Now the problem is all the lights work once the two were connected except the backup lights on th motorhome stay on. When I unplug the car from the motorhome the backup lights on the motorhome go off. Does anyone know why this is happening?? Thanks

Your aux power is feeding back by way of the last plug on the towed. You can disconnect that wire at the towed end, this way no needed changes on your coach.

I would in the future, change over to the 7way circuit on the coach, makes it easier and more straight forward for those time when you need it.

Trying to send you the diagram, not working for us
