Camera/Radio Issue

HI guys. I picked up the Berkshire 390RB a couple days ago in Elkhart and headed south trying to outrun the snow.

I have my first question/issue with back up cam, side cam and radio.

When I have the Air Brake ON, it all works as normal.
Radio plays, cameras switch with turn signals etc.
Of course this is only while parked.

When I release the Air Brake as I would do while driving, the display changes to the back up camera only.
Nothing else will work.
Left and Right cam will not activate,
Radio will not even play,
and even the Menu button does not work.

I played with the radio menu but could not find any options there to help.

Anyone got a clue for me?

Now that I think about it, the Weather came on right before I got to Louisville. Maybe it has something to do with Weather Alert Over-ride.

Thanks, Dan.

Sounds like mine when I am in reverse. May be a wire crossed or hooked up wrong.

The rear camera also comes on when the hazard blinker switch is engaged (radio recognizes power to both blinker power wires). I agree, you have a shorted wire somewhere.

Wired wrong was also my first thought.

Air Brake wire connected to the Radio Reverse Gear wire maybe.

But on our other motorhome, I don't recall reverse gear shutting off all the other radio functions. But I guess I wouldn't notice if it was working correctly.

Time to start pulling it out of the dash.

Thanks guys.

Well, I just cut the 'reverse' signal wire.
Now I will need to manually select the 'back' camera.

But I think I like it better now as I can now turn on the left or right camera while backing up also.

Which wire was the back up one and did it disable anything else?

Behind the radio they have tags on them. The backup camera is called signal 1. I have not driven it yet, only tested in stationary. But seems like everything else works fine.

Just a suggestion before ripping things apart I would suggest to check all your marker lights, turn signals lights and brake lights. See if anyone is burnt out and not working.
In the Georgetown area if a bulb gets burnt out it gives some type or loss ground or something that causes the camera to not function as normal.
It's worth the effort to check before taking things apart.,

I had a new Kenwood GPS/tuner installed when my rig was brand new and have the factory unit if you are interested. it may be something in the unit and not the wiring. Best of luck. Frank
