You need either a switching mechanism (Switch and/or relays) or diodes to keep the power in your RV separate from power in your towed. Most use diodes and you can purchase ready made harnesses for that. I just use a three pole double throw 20 amp toggle switch. Another way some people who tow Wranglers do it, is to install another lamp holder in each tail light housing that is only wired to the plug for the RV.
