Reverse lights on with brakes.

I have noticed that when I hit the brakes, the reverse lights also come on. This just started happening and I haven't changed anything as far as wiring goes. What is going on?

Take the trailer connector apart and clean the water-- seal it with dielectric grease.

Would an air hose be the best way to clean it out? It hasn't been rainy or wet around here much at all to get stuff in it.

I checked inside the plug and it is clean and still has dielectric grease in the holes.

Anything else it could be? Took the plug apart and it was clean and still had DG in it.

Okay,
Try each step, one at a time and retry the lighting.

A) Unplug the trailer connector inside the bumper (you can depress and spin the connector out of the bumper), then release the gray safety tab, the depress the connector tab (or, simply remove the TRL BU 10 amp fuse underhood).

2) Unplug the left rear taillamp harness from the rear frame junction block (on the left side of the spare tire crossmember).

iii) Unplug the right rear taillamp harness from the rear frame junction block.

d) If the glove box build label has the UY2 RPO code listed, pull out the bundle of blunt terminated wires for the 5th wheel connector harness above the fuel tank filler neck, and ensure full and complete segregation of the 8 wires.
