That's a long way for the current to travel if you mount it in the cab. Wouldn't that create some kind of un wanted resistance?

Although I DON'T have a better solution
Nevermind! I see you PROBABLY know what your talking about since your a tech! MY BADD!!!

I guess I'm lazy, and don't want to go pokin' around for a switch in the dark!
If I can't flip it when I'm sittin' in the cab fartin', forget it!

Well

I guess one of the wires to the cam sensor. Have you got a chip on it? You can get a dead position put on a flip chip. Then just hide the chip in the truck.
