Default 2007 Outlook Toad Lights

Hi All,

2007 Outlook that I'm looking to flat-tow. Question is: How do I wire the lights?

More detail: If the ignition is off and the vehicle is not sending power to the bulbs, that is an open circuit in my book. If I were to power that circuit from elsewhere then I shouldn't have an issue, right?

Then I read all kinds of warnings about backfeeding the computer by doing this. These are usually big warnings with little facts to back them up. Not beating up on them, just trying to get past this logic gate (open circuit equals no conductivity towards computer etc.) in my mind.

I also don't want to add a magic diode kit and end up with lighting issues on the Outlook when I'm driving it.

Digging around some more, I found this article: http://rvnerds.com/2018/07/25/electr...-toads-diodes/

Seems pretty well done, right?

So theoretically I could wire the bulb circuits and add one of those two-to-three converters listed in the article and be golden. I think.

What do you all think on this one?
