Electrical wiring Trailer/Cab

Question on 7 flat pin wiring.
Trailer lights, brakes have been working. I would like to hook up backup light circuit and 12v circuit for in cab switch for under trailer spotlights.

When plug is not connected, I have 12vdc on correct pin,
When plug is connected no 12vdc at that wire in junction box.
No extra batt.or breakaway is installed.

How do I access the relays/control wire in cab?
Suggestions, direction, links that work, pics, diagrams, etc.,
I would like to gather info see what I should be seeing.

In advance, Thanks for any info.

So with the plug plugged in you don't have power in the junction box on the trailer?

Sorry but how you wrote it is hard to follow.

Also all the fuses for the trailer connection are under the hood on my 01's.

Wiring /Trailer to Cab

Thanks for the reply.
Basically the 12v at the 7 pin is 0v once the plug is installed.

The actual topic is that I need to find out where this is accessable in the cab.
What panel, what pins, where to intercept, The control voltage for the 12v supply for that pin, is what I would like to switch via relay. Also the reverse Circuit needs to be found.
Actual wire color codes, component pin numbers etc,
Owners manuel does not have it that I have seen.
Access to Ford's actual schematics would be nice.

Thanks in advance.
