We have the Masterlock camera ...magnetic mount / powered from flat trailer connector. It has suction cup and vent mounting options with power point 12vdc input. It worked great for connecting the AS and TV. Now with a TV built in BU camera, we planned to move it to the back of the trailer, but - alas - nothing up high to "stick" it to. So, I will velcro it inside the rear window and make a power adapter.

Ok, update.
Got the 4UCam 3.6" LCD system as mentioned earlier in the post. It took much longer than expected to get the truck set up. I wired the license plate camera connecting it with zip ties and the 20' ext. along the bottom of the truck to the engine compartment where I hooked up the electric to the fuse box and mounted the transmitter on the driver's side wheel well. That put it very close to the LCD monitor. The signal looks great however, I do get momentary black screens every so often for about 2-3 seconds intermittently. It may only happen twice in five minutes but that is the only issue so far. The AS wiring is/was another story - still working on that one. The camera is inside mounted on an aluminum plate connected by the rear window. I am working on a way to pop open the emergency window and hang the camera out if needed on night backups for infrared clarity. The 20 foot extension got me to the credenza (I have the sofa floor plan) before I ran out of cable. So, I plan on experimenting with a mount on the wall (it would be behind the TV when not being towed) and we will see. That is, I figure, about an 18' distance to the LCD in the truck through both truck rear glass and trailer front window. We will see. I will keep you posted. That was my weekend!
