A friend of mine had similar problem! Have you had any work done on the gearbox recently?? I know of earlier models where the reverse light switch and transfer case wrong plugs are same and someone plugged the wrong plugs together. Could be a problem like that.
If no work done I would be looking for damaged wiring. Pre2012 models have wiring passing along floor inside the lhs of cab and then exiting through a grommet to feed rear functions. If seat have been out maybe wiring is squashed under seat mounts or wiring along chassis is shorter to frame/chassis somewhere. Look at where wiring loom goes around sharp corners.

Changing fuse boxes is not a normal service activity,Has it worked since the fuse box was changed?

I'd remove the reversing lights and fuse then start looking for a short to earth with a multimeter, including any reversing camera wiring.
