Default Wireless backup camera

I just bought a wireless backup camera for my truck. Now the two wires for the camera are black - and red +. I know were to connect the black wire to, but the red wire has to be connected to the backup light wire at the tail light does anyone know which wire color that it would be ?

Thanks Rockstar 414

The 2004 Ram uses a White wire with a Light Green stripe. Fairly thin...18 guage.

Thanks Brad12kx, I would have been awhile trying to figure it out and I didn't want to splice into the wrong wire.
Thanks Rockstar 414

Glad to help out.
Which camera did you get? I'm looking for a backup camera solution for a Chevy 1T van. They don't offer it OEM , so am hoping to find a good solution that's better than the wireless 'Swift Hitch' camera that I'm currently using.

I bought a Winplus 3.5" Backup camera it's a color monitor with night vision. Once I have it hooked up I'll let you's know how well it works.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it run you?

That seems like a really good price. If it turns out to work well I will probably get one for the wife.

I'm interested in a good clean solution for this, if there is one. On the one hand, it would be nice to have, if it works good. On the other, I don't know if I want a bunch of wires run everywhere, a fugly camera over the plate, and more crap on my dash in addition to the tom tom and radar detector.
