Hi, I have had and used my Garmin RV 760 for about one year so far and really like it. I was hoping to see someone's rear camera install to help me do mine. Well since I couldn't find anything, I just decided to see what I could do. I have been working on it for two days and have been having problems, but I think I finally have it. It will be some time before I can actually take my trailer out for a real test. I made my own camera mounting bracket and my power source is in my left tail light.

Your camera mount is similar to mine.
My camera gets power from the tag light.

On backing: The military teaches it this way. Start with the tow vehicle and trailer straight. Use basically one hand to steer while backing. So whichever hand you want to use, place that hand at the bottom of the steering wheel. Now it gets easy, whichever way you need the rear of the trailer to go, just move your hand in that direction as you back up. Start with small amount of steering wheel rotation until you see how much response you get, the length of the TV and AS will determine how much steering you will need. Hope this helps.

MaineStreamer, did you install a wired or wireless? Hope you answer wired, I am in search of tips for the wired kind.

Artic fox, I also have that same bike rack and I will consider doing that rather than making a hole, my system arrives 27 Jan and it is wired, just one cable travels from the hitch/tongue area I assume, that would power the camera and send the video back up front. May take this one little cable down under the AS from the bike rack attaching it with sheet metal screws to the belly pan. Does anybody think it would work? May try to mount a vertical piece of aluminum tubing to the bike rack to gain some vertical perspective.

Go to youtube, I just watched it being done to the rear of a moving van, drilling a hole is drilling a hole. With a typical hole saw you have a pilot bit which makes your starter hole. Just make sure this pilot bit protrudes from the hole saw with a minimum of length.

Camera on Sport 16

Don't know if I should post here, or start a new topic. Anyway ...

I just bought a 2012 Sport 16 and I want to install rear-view cameras.

Right now I'm thinking of a TadiBrothers 7" mirror clip-on wireless monitor, with a license-plate camera on the tow vehicle to help with hitching and general non-towing backing up, and a second wireless camera mounted high up on the trailer. (I'm figuring as long as I'm towing something tall, I might as well take advantage of the height to see over cars behind me.)

Here's my question (I knew there was a question in here somewhere!): To power the camera on the trailer, can I tap into the center clearance lamp on the Airstream? Is there a way to mount the camera without screwing into the skin? If I do screw it down, is there a way to do that which will minimize damage?

I guess I have a second question, having to do with the viewing angle. TadiBrothers seems to use 120° as their default. Does that sound right, or do people prefer something wider or narrower?

Any other comments welcome.

If you haven't chosen a camera system yet, check out my camera review under 2005 and newer Bambi's. I'm very pleased with it.
