13 Pin Euro Plug Earths

Quick one for the Europeans &/ or trailer experts just to make sure I'm not about to do something really stoopid with my new lighting board......

Seen plenty of diagrams, all essentially covering 2 variations of wording. Thing is none explicitly state which terminal the reversing light earth is wired to.

Having cross checked a few 23S diagrams, none explicitly state any of the earth pins are for the Reversing lamp(s).



Is my conclusion that the reversing lamp uses the lighting earth (pin 3 on the Euro / 13 pin socket), and also presumably on the 23S uses the Earth on the 23N correct?

Seems sensible as it's all vehicle lighting, but best to check once than rewire twice....

Thanks in advance.

Yup sounds good to me. Pin 3 (white) is the earth for pins 1 to 8 and the reverse (pink) is pin 8.

All the best
