1973 27' Overlander - Back up lights??

Hey Guys:

Gutting my OVerlander.

I removed the rear aluminum taillight housings and as expected the steel cans were rusted beyond saving.

So I've found excellent 4" truck stop/turn/running units that should fit into the housings fairly well.

Two questions:

I bought my AS non-functional. Does TT have backup lights?

My replacement solution has a three wire connector. Any ideas how I connect that to our two wire trailer wiring harness?

My Tradewind has backup lights. Your Overlander should have them as well. My manual shows only one type of housing for all the trailers that year.
I put new cans in the housings in my Tradewind. In order to ensure a good ground I soldered ground wires to the cans and ran them down to a body/frame wire in the bath.

Good luck with your rehab,
