I can't duplicate the situation on our rig........it's at the dealer for warranty work until the end of the month, BUT, I believe I saw the same thing when I last drove our MH. As I recall, the side and rear cameras did everything they were supposed to do until I turned on the headlights. I don't believe EITHER side worked for me with headlights "ON".
1. Up here in Canada, we've had Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) as standard equipment on our vehicles since the late 80's. This does not apply to trucks or buses, but certainly does for our cars and SUV's. The U.S. model equivalents do NOT have DRL's as best as I've seen. When I was researching the fuse and wiring schematics for the Ford powered Georgetowns, I saw mention of DRL circuitry, but never witnessed them actually running. In order to get ANY headlights, you must turn the dashboard switch "ON"....as I believe we ALL must do. True DRL's in Canada illuminate the headlights ONLY.........no marker or tailights anywhere else. This can be a real pain as people drive into the evening and eventual darkness believing they have their full lighting system "ON", when the rear of their vehicles are completely dark. They may see their headlights illuminating signs or other vehicles, but they offer no rear lighting for others. DUMB DESIGN!!!!!!!!!!!
2. All of the Georgetown models I've seen here in Canada seem to be built to meet U.S. regulations as opposed to Canadian ones. (Our speedometers are predominantly in MPH versus Kilometres.....our cars are always the opposite) This has been explained as being so, because Canadian market share for the number of units sold is only a small percentage compared to the U.S. which doesn't really come as a surprise when you compare the population differences. Although there may be DRL circuitry references in the Ford Manual, I really don't think the builders modify ours from yours, so I doubt there's any DRL circuitry causing this problem.
I'll re-check our camera operation in a few weeks when I get our unit back, and let you know what I find.
In the meantime........can anyone else who can get their hands on one check their operation?????????
