Thanks for the links. Yes, has to be a 'cheaper' way, but if the cheaper model is only going to last 12 months......

How did it work?

I am very interested in Livexl setup as I have a 91 350 LE that has a non-functioning camera. Which camera did you choose from rearviewsystems and did you replace your monitor as well? I see how you wired it and I wonder if you get any interference or noise from the coaches original wiring? If it all worked well for you I may do exactly as you. Thanks for your input. Steve G

I'm sorry I can't find the info on the camera but I'm sure if you tell them your situation they'll be able to help you. I did not replace the monitor. I am not experiencing any interference or noise from the coaches original wiring.

One of the nice things about the Intec is the markers showing how close you are to those immovable objects...does anyone in the US(southwest) work on the original systems? m

Was at AutoZone today, saw this setup. Realize that the screen is ultra small, but for the price???

Good low cost CCTV camera.

I use a camera from Harbor Freight on my camper. I'll be installing one on my AS soon.
It's around $40.00, good resolution, has weatherproof housing with mic, runs on 12 vdc, and has AV connection with 50 foot cord.
It also has "night illumination" L.E.D.'s. for after dark.
You'll have to make a splice for the connection between the TV and trailer, and you'll need your own monitor. Any small television/monitor will work if it has AV input (Yellow RCA plug).
It's 4 conductor, so you can use a weatherproof phone jack, or you can use the 12 volts off the trailer battery as long as you have the ground connection between the TV and trailer. Really simple hookup. (12 volts positive, negative ground, video, audio.) If you have a "spare" pin on your trailer plug, you can feed just the video through it.
Cheap, effective, and lasts. I've had one on the front of my house for 5 years.

I actually bought the same unit about a month ago. I intend on using it on the MH, but I installed it on my 20 foot enclosed ATV trailer for my trip to the sand dunes in Oregon. It worked out better then I expected. I actually wired the camera to work full time and not just in reverse. I think it was a great safety addition. I could see cars and 18 wheelers coming up behind me. It is wide angle so cars are closer to you then they seem in the camera. It was great for passing cars and trucks and knowing when I could safety pull back I to the right lane. It was probably at its max range for the wireless monitor and the signal would go out every once in a while, but the benefits certainly out weighted this disadvantage. In assuming it should work better in the MH with the transmitter and receiver located in the same vehicle. It was one of those impulse buys at the cash register, but I am very happy I did and you can't beat the price.

From most of the digging that I've done on this subject, the Voyager brand seems to be the class of the field. My moho came with nothing in the way of cameras or monitors, but here's the one I'll be using. This is the housing only, that is available for left, right or roof center mounting. I like the streamlined shape that's available in chrome finish to match the polished aluminum.

Charly.

The CCTV camera I get from Harbor Freight.
I've used several on my house for security (connects right to the aux input of the television) and the resolution is very good. It's lasted for 5 years with no problem. The audio is good, too. You have to use a dab of silicone where the cable enters the housing (which is sealed and gasketed), the grommet isn't sufficient to prevent fogging. It runs on 12 volts DC, one power, one negative, one audio, and one video. The factory uses a 4 conductor phone cable, which works fine. I modified mine to plug into a standard phone jack for ease of installation, since the distance was further than the supplied 50' cable.
I installed one one my 1970 Mowhawk Honorbuilt trailer, and it works fine.
These cameras are far better than the old junky ones they used to sell.
The 3.5" LCD monitor I ordered on EBAY (Part #220871253052) from Hong Kong. $25 and free delivery. Sorry, but I can't even get an Amercian company to return my phone calls for less than $25. Too bad, really.
The LCD displays usually last only a year or two, but for $25, I can afford that every couple years. It plugs right into the cigarette lighter. You'll have to do a little wiring and routing to get the wires from the trailer to the cab of the TV, but that isn't too hard.
I plan on using a toggle switch to select the video feed (One camera will be pointed directly down to the tow-ball/hitch, so I can hook up solo, the other camera will be on the trailer, mounted above the bathroom window.) I can route the wires through the vanity cabinet, along the inside of the trailer, to the front connector.
I'll be posting pics pretty soon of the "Aerojava" trailer. It's almost ready.
