Your truck's running lights have to be on, where you can see the running lights on the trailer on, or else the camera will not work.

While there are dealerships out there that are less than helpful, not all of them are.

Our dealer was great. Helpful! Engaging! Friendly! Courteous! Kind! They were just not familiar with the Voyager camera setup. The gentlemen that gave us the walk through seemed a bit surprised a camera was installed on the trailer. It was their first 2017 sell.

The ASA Electronics folks, manufacturers of the Voyager, were equally great. They tried trouble shooting my issues the best they could over the phone. The extender antenna is my last resort. If the signal keeps getting dropped, they suggested taking it into an Airstream dealer for a warranty claim. Still may be a bad power connection.

We go out again in a couple of weeks and will see if we are "fixed."

Our Voyager camera system is powered off of the rear lights which means we need to have the trailer connected to the TV and the parking lights on.

Not Pairing?

After having a Voyager rear camera installed on our 2015 25' FC, the camera would not stay paired with the monitor unless I adjusted the antenna on the monitor to a more horizontal position. The monitor is on the console of my Tundra TV. This is opposite what the manual suggested. No problem since.

We wired the Voyager to the power line to the reading light above the twin bed curb side in the Classic. We installed a switch with a LED to show the power was on. As soon as I turn on the dash mounted truck display, it connects to the camera on the back of the trailer which is just above the "Airstream" word and has just the stock 5" or 6" antenna.

We wired the 23D camera to the USB power socket above the bed with a similar switch and power on LED. Have an immediate lock to the display on the dash of the Mercedes using the stock camera antenna.

In both installations, the Voyager signal is being generated next to the trailer skin with the rear window glass perhaps a foot lower. The truck has a camper shell and rear cab glass for the signal to get through while the Mercedes just has the rear glass.

Maybe the newer systems have much less "RF" power?
