Ok but I bet the brake assemblies aren't electric, and that what I meant.

While this may be a requirement in Alberta, it is certainly not a requirement in BC. Most trucks have a receptacle beneath the rear bumper and that is where the wiring harness from the TV is commonly plugged in - not in the box of the truck.
The longer the harness, the less likelihood of it tearing out of the receptacle - if it is located in the truck bed. And that is why the receptacle is located as far back on the truck as possible.

Where did you get this information ---"I was told ......"??
