century 10 series rollback tow truck serious lighting problem

so about a week ago i noticed the lights on the bed of my truck started to act up on me, first off i was on i-5 when my strobes cut out on me... i checked the bulbs... they work fine then i noticed sometimes if the switch is on sometimes while moving the bed they will flicker on for a second then last night i come home from a tow to find that ALL the lights on the bed except the left tail/brake/turn light were out. no marker lights, no reverse lights or alarm... flood lights still work great tho... this evening i noticed on bumps my marker lights will flicker and sometimes when im sliding the bed the markers will go out then come back on any ideas other than gut wiring?

97 Ram 3500 2wd dually 12v ff #0 fuel plate, upgraded compressor wheel, nv 4500 rock crusher, 4.10 rear gooseneck & 5th wheel hitch... also has access to underbed repo wheel lift

94 Chevy silverado Blazer 4X4, 350, 700r4, sound system from hell... still drive the dodge mostly

The flickering on bumps and during bed movement says to me there is a loose or corroded connection someplace Since it happens when you move the bed, odds are its in the bed area instead of chassis or where the wiring harness transitions from chassis to bed. This type of problems can make one go Tracing wiring problems can be a pain in the . you will need a beerdrink

I would check the grounds. Sounds like a corroded ground connection to me.
