2007 K12LT Trailer Wiring ??

I'm told that the CAN BUS needs to be handled carefully when wiring up trailer lights. Can someone provide me a watch out list or a recommendation on how to wire up a set of trailer lights. I've planned to use an isolating relay & pick-up the signals from the rear lamp wiring harness. Is there a better way? and Not up-set the CAN BUS?

Thx, Brad
