Default Using Jeep as a TOAD, High Mount Stop Lamp doesn't Work

I use my 1997 TJ as a TOAD behind my Motorhome. I spliced into the rear light harness and use flat four connectors (inside the Jeep) to disconnect the Jeep control of the lights and give control by the motorhome. Both lights work good, but the High Mounted Stop Light does not work from motorhome control. It does when I swap it back to the Jeep. I would like to get this HMSL to work on both... Any suggestions?

Thanks, Mark

The center high mount light is most likely on a separate circuit than the lower stop lights. You may need another splice

It's not required by law, I would just leave it

I'm just leaving as is. I made a sign "Jeep in Tow" and placed it over the light. Worked well, just towed it to Florida.
