The camera that is on my Clipper is probably the same as what you have. I have no problem with mine and it gives an excellent image day or night.
There is a two position rocker switch on the drivers side panel that gives a close shot or a longer view. Is your two position switch not working?
It may be sticking from lack of use.
On the rear Cap --- Take off the f/g cover,(carefully drill out the rivets if it has never been removed)
and remove the two position switch. Test it on your battery and if seized, rap it a few times to loosen it up. (if that fails, soak it in baking soda and air dry)
and work it while applying 12V
Test and reinstall, and secure f/g cover using stainless screws.
I am sure the two position switch is available new but I have never looked for a source.
The monitor is rebuild-able if that is the problem?

The picture we're getting is almost useless during daylight hours, and at night, we can only see headlights...other than that, the picture is totally useless.
We used to own another motor home with a color monitor and camera that worked beautifully and was a tremendous asset. Has anyone who owns this vintage Airstream Motorhome swapped their monitor and camera for a newer better quality color system? If so, how did you do it? Where you able to use the same mounts and cabling already installed?
Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
