To find and connect for trailer lites

Go to rear of bus and fing rear wiring to all the lites. Open harness and use a test lite to determine which wire color operates which lite. Usually the harness goes to the rear on the drivers side. The wiring will include the rear door warning buzzer, left and right turn lites, brake lites and backup lites. You will need a test lite, paper for notes, and a helper in the drivers seat... Frank

Thanks, I'd like to pick up power at the switch if I can find it.

I haven't looked for the switch yet, it's there somewhere.

If you have air brakes it is in an air line somewhere. Mine is inside the door under the electrical panel door on the driver side. There are two for redundancy.

The switch on this bus is located under the brake treadle and can be seen from the ground. I intercepted the brake light wire at the elec. access area and it is the dull red (as opposed to the bright) large ga. wire coming from the loom that serves the rear of the coach. Piece o' cake.
