Exclamation back up camera with out putting holes in AS

we have anAS 2014 flying cloud. I have tried to see if we can get it installed with out putting holes in the trailer at all from the outside that is..
I saw a viedo where a ladys put the camera inside the AS and it was in the back window.. Great idea but we have a screen on the back of ours and the camera is a nice on and so it shows the screen lines to much...

i know I can have it installed on back as everyones does.. but looking to see again if i can not put a hole in the AS as that does invit problems down the line..

thanks all.

Can be done easily. Power from Rear Clearance light and mount camera base with 3M VHB
Also I’m sure Robert Cross will chime in he mounted his with high strength Velcro so he could remove the camera in winter storage.

Pull a little of the screen out on the bottom of the rear window. Slip the cable through and attach the camera to the window or frame. Power the camera thru USB or power plug.

Wireless Back up Camerea

OK, this is a really easy fix Go to:

www.tadibrothers.com

and see their offered array of wireless backup camera systems. I installed one by wiring the camera into the tail lamp circuit (no holes drilled...just routed the wire under the tail lamp lens). And that's it for wiring. Camera connects to cab monitor through Bluetooth.

I used industrial adhesive double sided tape (as is used to mount roof top solar panels) to mount the camera.

It requires that the driving lights be on (energized) so the camera gets power, but this is not a bad thing.

My installation has been "bullet proof" in sun, rain, snow, high winds and my total investment was under $150.

Good luck and be well,

Pirate Chris

I attached the camera to the underside of the rear cabinet and removed the rear window screen. Works great; no problems.
