Default Toad lighting?

Not a rv question but related I have a 04 jeep wrangler that i put n a toe wiring kit it works fine but added 2 bulbs n my tail lights but I'm goin to rear led lites and that design won't work I can wire into the factory harness but people put diodes in from what I read trying to understand y I know diodes limit to 1 direction flow but wouldn't the light switches being n neutral position do the same?

You can backfeed the coach wiring without the diodes when using Toad wiring

Yep, and on my Jeep that would take out a very pricey computer according to Jeep.

I have Roadmaster Hy Power Diodes like this: http://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-...er/RM-794.html
