I went to install a backup camera to my Forest River flagstaff TT that is only 10 months old. I found thet there wasn't any 12V power to the preinstalled/wired furion bracket. I checked every where and couldn't get power. I didn't check the fuse's I will tomorrow. Is there a switch or or could it be something else. I think it should be hot as soon as the battery is turned on.

It might be a backup only setup where there's only power from the 7 way during reversing. I know there are two models from Furion, a during monitor and a backup camera, not sure if the wiring is actually different between the two.

If it's like my friends trailer, that camera only works when you are hooked up to truck and your parking lights are on( your lights on). It only gets power then.

On my trailer the marker lights have to be on. On the 7 way plug, jumper the 12v+ pin and the tail lights pin together. That should power the camera for testing purposes.

Definitely try putting it in reverse to check power. I just installed a backup camera last week and the instructions specifically said to pull power off the reverse lights..

The camera runs off the marker lights. In many newer vehicles with automatic lights you will have to manually turn on the running lights which will power the camera.

I did try the Marker lights today and found they powered the prewired fusion backup camera. it was an easy install. Thanks for all the info guys! I owned a DP for 14 years and always learned how to maintain my Rv thru forums like this.

He has a TT, there is no reverse on it. (He found out the marker lights was the magic bullet.)
