Backup camera

I must assume you are referring to the Furrion model. Installed a new unit two weeks ago and everything worked as advertised. Install of camera was easy and jack was spliced into running lights. Your running lights must be on for the camera to work. Camera and monitor immediately linked up. All I had to do was adjust elevation of camera for observation vs. backup. I didn't see any fuses and could not see where the camera power line was spliced into running lights (its inside the body somewhere). From your post I assume that the factory failed to connect camera power line to your running lights. You may need to pull the center running light at tap into the electric there. Good luck and take care of that knee. Been there, done that.

My new camper was also pre wired for the Furrion back up camera. The only problem I ran into was not knowing to turn on the trailer lights to get power. Once I did that the system came right up.. I would think if you pulled the bracket off you should be able to see if you have a clearance light wire hooked to camera. I would think you should be able to splice into the 3 center clearance lights to get power. Later RJD

After further review (and staying off my feet today), I am going to give the camper a cursory review in about a week. If I don't find the in-line fuse or something obvious, will just fish the wire up 1.5 inches and hook-up to the running light right above it.

Thanks for all the input!!!

2 more weeks of rehab then I'm hitting the road, camera operational or not.

Happy safe camping season everybody!
