Back up lights

Hey Folks,

I'm attempting to tap my Aluminess rear bumper lights to my back up lights. We have the tow package option on our rig. Is it possible to tap the reverse lights through the trailer lights (female plug on hitch)? If so, anyone know the wire color? I was looking at the schematics and it did not give me the answer on which wire color is for the reverse light. Any help is awesome! Thanks

Yeah, I tapped into my trailer backup light circuit. I think it's the black wire with the stripe. It's good for 30 amps.

It's a black wire with a pink stripe.
