    OK, I got the brake lights/turn signals/ etc all hooked up to a trailer wiring harness.. But the bar also has reverse light that has to be hooked up separately... So anyways I looked at the tail lights where the reverse lights are, and there's 2 separate wires.. ones a ground, and one is the power... right? Anyways one is red, and one is white with a black stripe... the red one should be the power.. right?

    Should be. Toyota likes using the white/black combo as a ground

    You got it. On our vehicles, usually a wire with a stripe in it means that it is a negative.
