Where's the reverse wire?

I have an E99 F350 CC and I need to locate the wire for reverse. I'm looking for it under the dash rather than at the back end of the truck. I have a DVD player that I'm hooking a rear view camera to and it has a wire that's supposed to give a signal, which I'm assuming is simply charging to 12V, when the truck is switched into reverse.

Anyone know what wire this?

Be gentle, it's my first PowerStroke.

if it's the same as my '02. I had to remove the fuse box that is under the steering wheel (like 4 10mm bolts) and it was a black wire with a pink trace on it that was located on the back side of the lower right corner if I recall. Try google searching I think I found a picture of it somewhere from someone
