Supposedly they come up from one of the taillights and are grounded somewhere up top to the frame. Mine has wires heading upward from both left and right taillights...
While you have the panels off maybe try to fish a wire to one of them from the front.
I've also considered removing one, and running a long jumper up from the tail to test if they're missing ground, or power...

Well if you dig into them, do some test, and figure out how they work let me know. I would like them to work but right now are not on my to do list.

Finished the top of the bedding area. Will be building deep set of drawers. Started tearing out the old shower. Why couldn’t they just cut the carpet out right before dripping in the old shower?? Off to design a new shower. Since I’m a welder I’m thinking TIG stainless for a shower pan. Since the old shower didn’t hug the wall I lose about 4 inches of shower space. I’ll try to utilize that extra space this time...gotta figure away around that vent pipe

Let me find some pictures. I put a 24x32 tub in that space and studded the wall that you have out to run the vent

The water lines were originally in the vent chase on the outside wall. My 76 has a spice rack cabinet where you have the hallway way open. The lines now run in the back of it to the relocated faucet. These pictures were taken 3 years ago. I am hoping to finish the bathroom this year....lol Needless to say the shower has yet to be used.

It's just a vent - splice in some plastic flex tube and tuck it in the wall...
The outside curve would allow 4" more elbow room, as you say.

Thanks for the photos and ideas. I actually really like the idea of splicing it and putting flex tube so thanks for that. I didn’t think of it that way. After looking at it, I’ll cut the floor, splice just before the floor line, run the flex tube to the top against the wall and out the original location. Here’s an updated photo so far.
