12 volt reverse wire in dash where?

am in the middle of putting in a back up camera, 2000 'Trep, all is fine in the back, but need to know what wire in/ around dash area is 12 volts when in Reverse??? I see no fuse in block for it. Need to connect head unit rear cam wire to this, I am running cam off 12v reverse light in back, drilling 1/2 inch hole left of license plate for lens. won't be seen, protected from elements ;) been probing wires for an hour now...lol
thanks

Did you get there from first going to page 8W-51-4 (shows the whole circuit, and directs you to 8W-12-3)?

Cool

ok, as promised, some pics of camera and display...I have to go under and line the horizon up a bit better, but it's witch tit cold and wet out there today ;)

I didn't realize how bad this material "chips", probably use a grommet or something similar


Doofus me nicked paint (lower left) on drill with draw, not worried @ this point because it's not staying green

Not too bad of a picture, leaning a little bit to the left. Agree, open up hole, insert gromment.

Standard twist drill bits unavoidably wobble and chew the hole up into an ugly irregular shape in thin material (again, sheet metal, thin plastic) - unless you use a drill press and securely clamp the material.

Absolute necessity if you do things like build electronics that you install into either plastic or sheet metal boxes - for making perfect holes for switches, potentiometers, grommets, whatever.

They used to be relatively expensive tools, but even Harbor Freight sells them now for cheap. I've never used theirs, so don't know how well they hold up, but the quality ones stay sharp forever for DIY useage.

The amazing Unibit:
