on mine there is a panel with the voyager name that snaps on. Under it are two screws. I left the cover off. See attached. Are yours the same? If no post a picture And I will get the manual.

Wayne mine are on the side body thanks.
Silver thanks. I looked at it and assumed that was the trick but didn't want to just pop off that name badge without knowing. Thanks much. I'll let you know how it works.
If I haven't said it lately this forum and the folks on it are just the best. I can't imagine doing all this without all of your help.

I think they changed to color cameras some time in 2012. My 2011 has B&W cameras with a color monitor. I always thought it was odd that they did that.

To prove Phil's point, my 2012 came with all Black and White cameras. That is why I changed the backup camera to color.

Wow, never really seen a listing of what comes standard and what can be added as options from the factory when ordering the unit in advance.

So is it safe to say black and white camera's are standard and color was an option ? At least on 2012 models, they seem to be all different.

No nothing is safe Joe LOL. This is a very fluid industry. I have a 2011 and it has more in common with a 2012 than most 2011 I have seen. When they make a change the will run the same item until inventory is gone then switch over. Color cameras where never an option so a decision to change to color was made sometime in 2012 and as the B&W Cameras were used up the color cameras were installed. It's really not an exact science.

Have to wonder if some poor guy isn't wondering why one side of his coach shows up in color and the other in b&w.

Phil, they thought that you were a retro type of guy and would like B&W.

Joe, Motorhomes do not just change by model years. There are changes within a model year and most time do not show up in a spec. sheet or brochure.

For instance, my 2012 had large drivers side sliding windows which rattled to beat a band. FR then went to smaller sliders (not documented anywhere)
