I'll definitely let all know how it works out! I have one of those $99 license plate wireless cameras on the MH. Its sort of worthless as a "backup" camera because the monitor is too small. Other issue is since it is wireless, the monitor image comes and goes. Its best use which has actually made it worth the money is I use it when passing a semi to see if I have enough room to pull back over.

Another strange effect of the wireless units is it affects WiFi. I don't know how I figured this one out, but I was at a campground one time and I couldn't get the WiFi to work. I was swearing at the lousy campground WiFi serviced. Something in my head told me to turn off the wireless camera. Wifi was working again!

I'm willing to run a cable to get the quality that is required for a backup camera.

I'll try this one out on my truck, but I think I'm going to need an extension for the mount such as the one in this pic...I can't find one...

I am just stating facts. Now it is probably a fact that I forget to turn it off due to the wine

Also, Dean just gave me a clue as to why my wifi doesn't work in the trailer sometimes!

So our neighbors got us a wine bottle stopper and vacuum pump. We asked what it was for. They said to save left over wine in the bottle. We asked What's leftover wine?

Now where did I put that wine????

That's true, there is never any left over wine and if for some reason there is its because it's no good!

Nice! Looks like a 31'. I was up in Red Bluff this weekend, but I didn't leave the ranch! I hope you're having a great trip. I loved your pic from Weed!

Dean, If I remember correctly. you had a problem with your 110 V relay in the back. You know, the one that switches between gen and shore power. Did you replace it and if so with what? I have intermittent issues with mine.
Thanks

Hey Peter, I haven't replaced it. The one I have is a Parallax ATS 301. I bypassed it and added a receptacle to do a "manual switch". I do wish I had an automatic switch again...maybe later this year.

I think I had posted that I was upset this one didn't last long, but it is probably a good unit. We had a lightening strike on a power line at the ranch last summer and this is when the unit began failing. All stands to reason...I have a surge protector but of course the "switch" is in line before the surge protector so it is going to take any surge first from a lightening hit.

Before I ever get another one, I would do some research to see if the switch has any type of surge protector.
