Do you have enemies? Why would someone do that? You can protect with fuses.

No enemies but my own paranoia really.

So then since I'm assuming the bus already has fused circuits for all of the lighting at the rear, can I just splice into those wires?

Call Hopkins (hopkinstowingsolutions.com)+ tell them what you are doing. Bus to trailer wiring can get funky with seprate brake + blinkers going to a single bulb. I had one of their splitters. It worked odd-the parking lights would stay on. I called tech support + told them what I had. "Oh-you want model XXX. Give me your address + we'll send you one." They did-FREE!!! They make some good multi style all in one units. Heres a kit for an example.

Another suggestion. etrailer.com. Can't their selection or prices.
