    Sorry if this is late. By tapping into your tail light system the only time your strip lights will work is when your tail lights are. Including while driving. Unless you add an on off switch. You need to find a wire that has 12 volts all the time or run a separate wire direct from 12volt fuse panel or battery with its own inline fuse. Hope this helps and I am not to late.

    Hello Dale, A few years back, you wrote: "I have tapped into both rear lights and installed 12 volt outlets."

    I would like to install 12 volt outlets as well, but today's question is: I installed an LED strip along the keder rail and clipped off the charger, then brought the cable into the rear of the camper, near the tail lights.  I was considering using T-connectors to tap off the passenger side tail light and was wondering if you have suggestions for me, or any better advice. I don't want to mess up my tail lights, but I really don't know where else to get the 12V from!  My LED 12V wires are one red and one black; both very thin.
