    I just installed two bedlights that also can function as additional reverse lights.

    The whole thing is pretty simple, just a SPDT automotive relay, a switch and a set of lights.

    Pretty much the operation is:

    1. On with Reverse Lights
    2. On with switch

    If anyone is interested I can do a write up and post the circuit diagram for wiring the relay. Let me know.

    I'd be interested to see what you did and what you did with the SPDT wiring.
