I just dropped my 3170 off at the dealer today to have my cameras,and a few other things looked at. I have already had my driver/passenger side cameras replaced once (under warranty) due to fogging up. The new cameras still fog and now my driver side camera is experiencing the exact issue the OP describes. I will post when I hear back from the dealer if they figure it out. Good luck with yours.

I would pull the rear trim, drill a hole, have the connector behind the trim and find another route to the cab. Just me.
Would you do that if your RV was under warranty?

I think that's fine sometimes, but in this case I think there are more practical solutions.

Dealer determined I needed the drivers camera replaced again. I was just within one year of the last time they were replaced, so I believe Velvac (the camera manufacturer) is covering under warranty.

That reminds me. I have to call the dealer to see if the camera is in yet.

I don't know how I missed reading this. I'll run out to the line and see where the wires are run.

Thanks Joshua, I really appreciate that.

I dropped my RV off and the dealer today for them to look at it - but it did not go well. I have made an appointment 3 weeks ago to have this looked at but when I arrived today they told me they had no record of my appointment.

It's a SUPER busy RV dealership and the chance of them getting to this before I have to pick up the RV in 10-days is almost none.

They were nice and said they'd work me in - but I'm not holding out a lot of hope for this.

I leave for a month long trip in about 2-weeks.

This is all described by standing on the outside facing the rear of your coach.

The wire runs from the camera along the rear wall and roof to the drivers side. Once it gets to the corner it goes down into an aluminum tube to the bottom of the coach. If you go to the Drivers side rear corner and feel underneath there will be foam where the an opening is covered. You can follow the wire from there.

Is it one continuous cable that runs from the camera to the front of the coach or is there a shorter "pigtail" wire from the camera that plugs into a long extension that goes to the front of the coach??

My RV dealer suprised me and pleased me today. When I took my RV in yesterday they couldn't find my appointment but said they would "work me in."

It can take a month to get an appointment with them and another 3-weeks to get a repair. But they called today, told me the had already worked on the issue and determined the camera was bad. Not only were they getting a new one from Forest River but if I'd pay for expedited shipping they'd have it in 2-days.

This is great we go on a month-long trip in 2-weeks.

Now let's see if it all comes together or not.
