Backup Sensor and Reverse lights out

Looked up 100 threads but all let to a busted fuse or bad sensor. Do the reverse lights and backup sensors run on the same circuit? I had high clearance bumpers built and they re-used the backup sensors in the bumper but, since i got the truck back, I cannot get the backup sensors or reverse lights to work. My backup camera switch power is tied off my reverse lights so it's extremely inconvenient.

Fuses are all good and the back up sensor light doesn't come on when i put it in reverse so i do not think i have a bad sensor, i feel like i am missing something obvious here. The license plate lights were not working either, by some stroke of bad luck, they both burned out so I replaced them thinking they were wired in sequence with the backup lights and sensors but that fix the issue. Any ideas??

I would check for a loose ground wire. Or if they grounded it to a painted surface.

Kinda my thought as well. Was just hoping there was something simple I was missing like a hidden in line fuse.

Well, grounds are all good so it looks like I need to have it looked at as I've exhausted the extent of my low-voltage capability.
