RE: Help hooking up power to back up camera

Appreciate the feedback...I did figure this out eventually. I followed the three wires to a wrapped point where they all came together...and only two wires left. I unwrapped this area and found the green wire was connected to NOTHING. Then I cleaned the two wires leaving this joint and found them to be black and white (under all the grime). from there it was pretty straighforward.

RE: Help hooking up power to back up camera

1. The original Back up camera system has NO Reverse wire connection at the REAR of the motorhome. The reverse is activated at the front Dash area to the original dash monitor and when the reverse transmission Hyd switch is engaged the wire is sent to the Dash Monitor harness and the Dash Monitor then sends the activation/power thru the multiwire harness connected to the rear camera. 2. The 3 wires you mention. Are these at the rear Tailight/Reverse light lamp assbly? If so, then the Yellow is usually the Reverse Pos wire. The Green would be running lights and the white ground. 3. The SAFE way to test is what I do. I have someone at the drivers seat with the Air brake engaged and then run the engine and have them shift to reverse WITH THEIR FOOT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. Doug The three wires feed the back up light bulb, and I was trying to determine which is power and which is ground in order to hook up the two wires from the Garmin wireless transmitter. It would help to see the wiring diagram, but I've not found one in the stuff I have, nor on line.

RE: Help hooking up power to back up camera

Did your Monaco come with a rear camera? It did come with a B&W monitor which is pointed pretty much down to see a toad, but not to see where you're going in reverse. I've already been through seeing if the camera is adjustable and it's not. This is an aged cathode ray tube monitor that is somewhat blurry, so trying to upgrade...and see better.

RE: Help hooking up power to back up camera

I have not...didn't want to pierce the insulation of the wires and having removed the bulb, the connection doesn't look like anything I'm familiar with. Also not completely sure how to energize without the engine running, and I don't want to be in the compartment with it running.

Help hooking up power to back up camera

I'm installing a Garmin back up kit to my 2002 Monaco Windsor. I want to connect the power for the transmitter to the back-up light circuit, but see three (3) wires...looks like white, yellow and green. I have been unable to find the wiring diagram in the materials I have, so wondering if anyone knows of these three wires, which is ground and which is power.

RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

I would settle for tires up to 6 months old as new. Requiring one month, especially on a tire not made in the US is probably impossible. Only RVers are obsessed with the age of tires, especially if you replace at 6-7 years. Thanks Ivylog. This is the first time I'll be replacing tires on a MH, so appreciate the well-reasoned response.

What constitutes a "new" tire?

I was dealing with a local supplier of Toyo tires and had an appointment set...until I told him I wanted the tires to be within 1 month of manufacture. That did not go over well and he said Toyo probably hasn't even made tires in 2021 yet, and that all that are available are tires from 2020. So, why would one pay for new tires if they are not new? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

RE: Add rear-facing camera to Sony B&W Monitor

Well, this camera is not far as I can tell. I removed the two screws holding the housing to the coach body, then found four allen screws holding the camera to the housing. I loosened all four and tried moving the camera inside the housing, and it moved not a bit. . So put it all back together and am now going to investigate installing another camera. Not entirely sure what that will entail, but likely a parallel system to the existing black & white original system.

RE: Add rear-facing camera to Sony B&W Monitor

Thanks Fred. I was able to remove two screws from the glass cover and pull the camera housing part way out. There are two allen screws on each side...of course I didn't have the right allen wrench with me on top of that ladder. But I thought I'd try to see if I could loosen the screws and then change the angle of the camera. The monitor accepts two inputs, but I don't know where I'd find a camera that would match that 18-year old technology. I like your idea though.

RE: Add rear-facing camera to Sony B&W Monitor

I'll check that out...thanks. The camera is recessed behind a glass cover and I didn't see if it could be could be adjusted, but that certainly would resolve the issue. Thanks again.

Add rear-facing camera to Sony B&W Monitor

New to this forum...recently purchased a 2002 Monarch Windsor 38-PBD in great shape. Some tweaks I want to do, one of which is to add a rear-facing camera as a back up camera. The original Sony (SSM-721AMR) unit has a camera that looks at the towed vehicle...not as rear-looking as I want in a back up camera. Any thoughts on how to go about this would be appreciated.
