    I want to wire my 3rd brake light on my camper, which wires from the tail light to tap in? There are three wires;

    - white/black
    - green/red
    - green

    Which two wires to tap to get the 3rd brake light to work?

    Not sure and don't feel like opening it up to look.
    Just a guess
    - white/black ground
    - green/red brake
    - green running
    The wire I tapped into up front to hook my fog lights into my running lights was solid green.
    Easy enough to test with a meter. Or you could use trail & error. If it stays on use the other green wire.
