Wiring diagram 2013 Rockwood 8282ws?

Trying to mount rear view camera on our 2013 Rockwood 8282WS 5th wheel. I tried the running light in the back but there is not a good enough ground, because when I hook the camera up direct to the camper battery the camera will pair with the monitor. If I had the wiring diagram for the running light circuit in the front storage area, I would run a wire to the battery ground and spice into the running light there. Any idea which colored wire is for the running lights?

Ok I found the wire for the running lights in the front storage compartment. Spliced in a wire for the hot side and grounded to the battery and nothing. Hook direct to the battery and it works fine. If I hook it up to the truck bumper connector the camera works. Any idea how to fish a wire to the gooseneck from the front storage area?

"In theory" it's supposed to be brown. But mine isn't wired to the standard, so don't be surprised if yours isn't, either.

If you can get to your umbilical cord Junction box, you can open it and see if the brown wire from the umbilical cord is connected to brown trailer wiring. Whatever color wire it's connected to, that's the color your running lights wiring is.

You might want to make sure that pin 3 of the 7-way connector is actually connected to the umbilical cords brown wire. A few folks have reported that their umbilical cord doesn't follow the standard either.
