Let me start by saying that I don't own a AS yet. Hope to own a new Classic very much like your 31'. The image below is one from the rig that I presently have. There are many 12 volt
cameras that will work, Ebay would be a place to check. The one in the picture is not waterproof, but is shielded, therefore the little camera module inside stays dry.
The wiring is held securely along the bottom with clamps every foot or so. With the AS I am not sure, but the underbelly attachment area might be a good place. As far as how to get it to the top area, I am not sure. I would think that for the existing wiring to the light would also allow the camera wiring to be "fished" through the same area. I "fished" mine to the taillight (removed) and then to the middle clearance lamp. Using the lamp as a portal, no extra holes are required. All that was required on mine was a slot cut on the bottom of the lamp. The video pigtail wire on camera was a small coax RG-174 and was terminated with a connector that would allow connection to the larger coax going to the front of the rig. The 12 volt
wire was extended so as to allow connection inside where it could remain dry. The camera was drilled with a drain hole just incase any moisture entered, it would drain out. The camera was attached with strong mounting tape.
This may not be a plug and play, but it has been a real winner for me. One note. Either the camera or the monitor has to flip the image right to left. Otherwise it is just the same as looking backwards out the rear window.
