Backup light wiring '03 Safari

Happy Labor Day One and All,

My Safari has the LED tail/brake light/turn signals. Two LED units per side. I want to replace the lower red LEDs on each side with white units and wire them to the backup light circuit. The manual indicates the trailer is prewired for backup lights (a black wire). I removed each of the 4 leds looking for an unused black wire and there is none to be found. Does anyone happen to know 1) does the wire actually exist, and 2) where it is accessed? I searched the forum and could not find a reference. Thanks for any advice on this.

You can go to, pick North America. Search their site and find cust service. There should be a phone number and e-mail address. You can e-mail your question( Just include the vin when doing so). They have helped me on my 69 numerous times and are pretty quick to do it. I usually get an answer within 24 hours if I e-mail during bus hours. 1-877-596-6505
This is a voice mail system only. Your call will be returned within 24 hrs. After listening to a brief greeting, please record the following information:
  • Your name
  • Telephone number
  • Specify trailer or motorhome
  • Model year
  • Last six digits of the Airstream serial number
  • Brief description of problem or information need
This is their Phone #. If you would rather e-mail them go online to AS North America, then hit the cust service. At the bottom of the page there is a contact us link, hit it, fill it out and send.

Feedback from Airstream

A fellow named Jim from Airstream confirms there should be a reverse wire, and that it should be behind the taillights. I sent him an email explaining (again) that it is not there and asking where it might be hidden. No response. Does anyone know where the harness for the taillights is run upstream of the taillights? Or have another idea of where to look for this elusive wire? Thanks in advance for all ideas.

Regards, Mike
