Power doesn't come from the switch. It sent from a rear wiper control module which is controlled by the BCM on a data bus line. Also it IS a plastic hose routed within the wiring harness to the rear.

REAR WASHER HOSE ROUTING
The rear washer hose is a component of the main body wire harness assembly. The rear washer hose is a hard plastic convoluted tube that is wrapped in the electrical tape along with the main body wiring harness. It starts underhood where it connects to the rear washer solvent container hose, this is rubber tubing. The rear washer hose routes into the main body wire harness underhood and passes through the front of the dash. The rear washer hose runs inside the vehicle interior along the left side rocker and over the left rear wheel housing. The rear washer hose is then routed up the left side pillar where it connects to the rear washer nozzle hose, where it is rubber tubing, at the top of the lift gate opening.[/Quote]
