MH Backup Camera system

I have a 2003 Class A Motorhome that has a backup camera system.

The camera part is toast, and the company that sells it is out of business.

What have others done to replace their motorhome camera system.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a model and name of the system? A picture of the camera? I believe the output of many of the RV cameras on the market are probably very much alike and you might be able to substitue one for the other.

Backup Camera

there is no brand name on the camera or monitor.

Forest River said it is a Videoman which is now defunct.

The camera has three wires going to it, if that helps.

Without a picture of the camera itself I can't say for sure but for example: My mother in law has a backup camera system on her truck. She has had it for probably 10 years. Low and behold, when we bought our brand new Georgetown, it had a camera that looks identical. It's a self contained unit that measures about 2" x 4" x 4". Some of the older rigs had some sort of a round camera on an arm. You might look on Ebay and see if you can find a used system with the same type of camera. I don't know what brand ours is but it's attached to a Jensen head unit in the dash.

Does it look like this one on Ebay

Been searching for a camera system for my 5er to keep an eye on my motorcycle. You could search on E-bay, and find different mfgs. I found one called rear view safety. They seem to have a good system, and so far everyone there I talked to seems to know what they're talking about. They could probably match something up for you. Can't tell you what the system is like yet, UPS said they delivered it and we never got it , so now we're waiting while they figure it out.
