    Shouldnt be a big deal, Just get a SPDT (On-On) switch from Radio Shack, Wire it in with the hot lead that is going to the Backup lights on one post, 12VDC constant to the other, then the single output goes to the lights. In the normal position the lights will light when you put it in reverse, and when you flip the switch Instant anti tailgater! Its the same switch that used for the Map lights in the overhead console. They lig.ht with the theater lighting and any time you turn them on manually. Hope this helps

    I just added some backup lights for my camper also. I didn't want them on everytime I was in reverse , just for backing the camper up. I mounted a 12vdc automotive relay under the hood and tapped power for the lights going through the relay from the red plastic box on the left side of the motor. I mounted a switch on my dash to control the relay so I can turn the lights on or off anytime I want. Pics of the lights and switch in my album
