The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit part # HM56202 will work in conjunction with the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 42615. The wiring harnesses will plug into one another and then "T" into the vehicle's lights behind the taillights on your Wrangler. You will also need to use the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit part # RM-88400.

The only problem you may run into is that the loom of wires for both connectors will be a tight fit behind the taillights and may require some additional zip tires or electrical tape to position them out of the way. Using both of these harnesses will give you a 4-way trailer connector at the front of the vehicle which will be used by the RV to control the vehicles lights and a 4-way trailer connector at the rear of the vehicle to control the trailers lights.

Another option you have that will limit alterations to the vehicle and the need for a relay would be to use a set of Heavy Duty Magnetic Tow Lights like part # TL21RK which will sit on top of the toad vehicle and allow the RV to transmit signals.
