Battery operated backup camera

Are there WiFi back up cameras that do not require wires for the camera but uses small batteries. As I do not want to run wires from the camera to a light etc.
Thanks

You could probably use two cell phones, and do something like Facetiming them together. You put one in the back window of the trailer after initiating the session, and monitor from your phone in the truck, while backing up.
If you don't like that idea, here is another:

Great resolution and terrific nav to boot.

Amazon has a bunch of wireless rear (back-up) cameras that you can "easily" connect to you licence plate and power through the licence plate wiring - no brainer

The option i use was to use the cigarette lighter outlet in our cabinets above the dinette and i keep the camera taped between the screen and window.

I haven't really used it on the AS, but with the Burb in the Garage and me in the house 30' away it did work while I was up-loading firmware. I may order another license plate bracket and give it a try while hitched. The resolution is great and would a nice improvement over the Furrion camera.

We have used this WiFi camera as a backup cam and on the road for two years.

It has an internal battery that will last a couple of hours, I added a USB battery pack to extend that to over 8 hours. I use an old iPad mini in the TV which gives a very good video display, much better than the displays on devices that provide their own video display. You could also use any Android or Apple smart phone. It can also be connected to the TT 12v system via the running lights or license plate light if you want. Have been pleased with the weatherproofing - rain and heat haven't affected it.
