I wish I could meet you. You sound just like me and my wife. (LOL)
If that is the case, either you have a short in the wiring itself, or there is a ground that is now making a better connection.
I know if sounds crazy, but a weak ground will do strange things. I have an old Hi Lo that I refuse to pull any more. The last time I worked on it, when I put on the brakes, the lights inside the camper would turn on. Believe it or not, it was a bad ground that caused me to loose more hair than I had to loose. That is why I am pushing you in that direction.
Check it out and let me know if it helps.
