Question Wiring & Receiver Lights

How are your receiver lights hooked up? Are they tapped into the backup lamps? Or have you hooked them up to the battery & wire in a toggle switch? Mine are tapped into the lamps. Is hooking them up to the battery/toggle better?

I would think that if you had them hooked up to a toggle would be better. That way you can have your lights any time you want. The truck doesn't need to be in reverse for them to be on.

Maybe could even get a relay that would allow you to do both. When in reverse they automatically come on, or turn the switch on to turn them on when not in reverse.
