Light Bar for towed truck

I designed and built a light bar that drops downs into the rear bed pockets of my pickup. There is a pigtail that drops in behind the tail gate to under the truck that I plug into a harness (boat trailer wring) I ran from the front of the truck back. The front plugs into the motorhome. It is all stainless with LED lighting.

Nice job. I did something similar with my Subaru Crosstrek. Bought an inexpensive hitch mount bike rack, mounted a 4' piece of aluminum angle with led boat lights on each end. Like you, I ran a trailer wire from the lights to the front of the car. Plugs on each end allow me to plug n play and remove the light rack and the lights when not in use.
Where there's a will, there's a way.
