I wire my back up beepers on a on/off so I don't wake people when leaving for work early in the AM.

That's a cool idea. Won't cause any issues? I guess I could wire in a diode so that when I manually trigger it, it doesn't feed back through the system and trigger the back up cam and lights?

You could use a SPDT switch. Cut your reverse wire, up stream lead to one leg of switch, down stream leg to center leg and aux power to remaining leg.

I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number!
