Furrion has a solution in progress. Itís a short 7Ē long 7 pin pigtail and it works flawlessly. Contact Furrion support to see when you can get it. No wiring or programming needed. Just plug it in and the camera works perfectly. We tested the prototype and have driven 2500 miles so far without a lip!

Thanks for pointing this out. Have you (or anyone) tried it yet? I reached out to ASA and this was their response
"Good afternoon Greg,

Thank you for contacting ASA Electronics customer service department.

Yes, the filters are available on Amazon to purchase if you are experiencing the interference. This will need to be installed in line on the power to the camera. Please let us know if you have any additional comments or concerns.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

ASA rear camera fix install

Installed the fix in my Globetrotter and camera is working fine now in my 2019 GMC Denali. The part is a short ďpigtailĒ that is installed between camera and the power source. Not hard to do in theory but not easy due to Airstreamís initial install of the camera. The part requires a 5/8Ē hole to get it into the cavity between the inner/outer skins. The existing hole is only 1/4Ē so drilling is necessary. Which means you have to cut the cable before drilling. Also Airstream filled the hole quite well with sealant that needs to be removed and the existing power cable does not have a lot of slack in it once you get it loose. Judicial cutting of the cable is critical to ensure you have the lengths right when you remount the camera. Drill carefully and slowly as you donít want the bit to push the cut end of the cable to far back into the cavity, it would be a real pita to try and locate and fish it back out. Get a larger replacement bushing and some more sealant to finish up. Better yet, if you have extra cash, take the part to your dealer and see if you can talk them into installing it 😳. Good luck and happy camping!

We thought about installing this but after reading the process I think we will just stick with the Furrion adapter plug (goes in the 7-way). Not sure what the advantages would be to remove the camera and install it again (for us) since everything is now working great? We were sort of terrified to attempt it the first time... afraid we would lose a wire into the body of the Airstream, etc. Nice to know this works, though, in case we need to install it someday. We had not heard any reviews from anyone who had actually used it!

Is the Furrion plug available yet?

I can't find it on their website and the last time I emailed them they said the end of Sept or early Nov.

ASA went this way so it only affects the power going to the camera and not the entire parking light circuit. That way it won’t interfere with the truck checking that all the lights are working and not a blown bulb. Also, when hitched and 7 way connected and the vehicle is locked, the GMC can sense if the trailer is unhooked and will set off the alarm and message you through their app. GMC uses the PWM for multiple things. At least that’s what I’ve been told ��. YMMV

Thank you for this and the previous post with details of your installation.

What I'm wondering is there anyway in the world that the wires to the camera can be accessed from inside?

I have a 2017 27FB. I'd be willing to cut a hole in the back of the overhead cabinet with a hole saw then plug when done, if I knew that I'd have access to the camera wires.

I'm not sure? Jim Weaver was who sent ours and he said it was a prototype and should be ready to go in a month or so? That was back in July.

Our light check DOES work when it is plugged in and we check the tow checklist (in a GMC Denali Sierra 1500) every time. The adapter does not interfere and it seems a lot less trouble to just plug in rather than have to rewire the camera. That made us so nervous to do the first time! I would contact Jim Weaver and ask?

Had same issues with my 2019 25Flying Cloud Voyager camera and monitor and 2019 GMC Denali 6.2. Fixed it with Furrion adaper that pluds between 7 way on truck and AS. About $100 from etrailer.com.

So all this is to take the WySight Voyager camera signal, and send it to the remote monitor in the cab of a 2019 GM 1500 GM truck, right?

Is there a way to send the wireless camera signal into the built-in trailering app that's already in the dash?

There is an adapter made by furrion that works great for us. (just plugs into the seven way). There is also a simple wired in pigtail on Amazon for around $19. (wires into the 12 volt wiring if you wired your camera that way.) Love our truck and camera system!

Lemme ask a question or two to clarify:
The adapter that plugs into the seven-way (or the wiring pigtail between the camera and its power source off of the light): its purpose is to tame the the system so the camera's power isn't pulsed, correct? Thus allowing the camera to function? However, this is still going to the separate hand-held-or mounted monitor? It is not going to the entertainment screen built into the dash?


What I'm hoping to figure out, is how to have a wireless camera go to the dash' screen, and not have to use a separate monitor.

I have not seen that as a simple task. My GM, for example, has an accessory camera with proprietary electronics that do just that. The receiver is actually wired into the truck's entertainment system. If you start with a standard Voyager camera, you may or may not find an aftermarket receiver that can wire into your display system. Maybe there are even BT solutions.

I agree, it doesn't appear to be simple to accomplish. However, my AS doesn't have a backup camera at all yet, so it's not that I'm tied to it having to be a Voyager. The GM system is designed for their wired camera system, to be plugged into the socket at the rear of the truck adjacent to the 7-pin socket. However, my Sierra doesn't have the full-blown technology package for doing the whole invisible trailer feature (no cameras under the side mirrors, no camera on the grill). My understanding is, though, that there is the camera connector under the bumper (so if instead of having the 4-pin socket, mine had the two camera ports, it would have been connected instead). As long as I don't expect to get the 'invisible trailer' view functioning, I do suspect that I could manage to at least get a wired backup camera to display on the entertainment screen (without having an extra monitor to mount). Part of the trick would be how to run the wiring for a wired camera... I'm definitely still in the "let's think this through" phase. Using a wireless camera would solve the routing of a wire, but, I'm not yet sure how a wireless signal would make it to into the dash's screen, unless it is via a wireless adapter that would plug into the camera socket at the bumper. I've not even heard of such being possible yet... but, it seems potentially doable, for the right group....

The way it works on a 2017 is the camera is wireless. Sends to a receiver mounted to the rear window, upper corner. Signal strength is just fine. The receiver has wires that go down to the floor, under the carpet, and up into the dash. You must pull some of the trim, etc. to get to the entertainment system to wire it. As I said, this is a GM accessory package specifically designed for the GM truck. I did not opt for the package with multiple camera, just the one that, for me, is mounted on the back of the trailer. I tapped into the upper running light for 12v power to the camera.

GM changed the whole shebang on the 2019 and later trucks tho'... so I don't know if they have a wireless version for the newer ones or not: what shows up in the catalogs is the wired camera, but, they also say those are for ones with the optional technology package that has the two camera ports above the 7-pin socket. (My brother's Chevy has them, but my Sierra, while it has the 'ProGrade trailering package', it does not have the camera sockets.)

My local dealerships aren't specialists in such, I've gotten the impression they aren't able to help as much as perhaps some other dealership somewhere else might be able to do....

What I might need to find is some semi-local dealership that is more of a specialist, even if they are an hour or three away....
