    Apparently this section of the forum is extremely limited in text, hence the need for three sections in the reply.

    Now if your intended system works, about the only thing you'll need to address is, the lighting of the Jeeps brake lights, via the Jeeps brake pedal, via the use of an auxiliary braking system, i.e. Brake buddy, Ready Brake etc. You see, by wiring it so you use the Jeep tail lights, and, you put a turn signal on in the motor home, and, hit the brakes in prep for a turn-and-brake situation, you'll have two conflicting signals going to the same filament, see what I mean? Let me know.

    Now, as for your approach to wiring your Jeep in the manor you're choosing, well, I've never done it like that but, based on your intent of the placement of the diodes, I'm thinking it will work, depending on just where that flat-four plug wiring harness ties into in the Jeeps wiring. I suspect it's in the tail end section. A question for you, what year Jeep are we talking here? You see, in the '12s and later, they're using CAN-BUSS or Multiplex wiring and, goofing around with the tail light wiring by the addition of input from another source i.e. the motor home, kind-a makes those later model systems throw a tantrum. But, in the '11s and earlier, using the stock tail lights as toad lights are no problem. To be continued....

    Rangeguy,
    Good evening. I don't get many messages in this section of the forum. I'm hoping I'm answering yours in the correct section. If not, I suppose I'll find out. Anyway, as for the diodes, yep, those will work fine. They are in fact, very close to the ones I've purchased at Radio Shack.
    To be continued...
