FlyBob, I check and rechecked and switch cables around on the multiplexer and all work in different ports except that one. Checked all of the visible wire connections under there dash while observing the monitor. No change. I think it's the trigger. Does it work off the turn signal relay, perhaps? Checked all my Led's and run signal lights and they are OK. May remove the camera housing and check for voltage to the camera for starters. All video cables are tight.

Went outside and checked, "NO SIGNAL" is back. Guess it needs to be rained on for it to work sometimes!

working again for the moment

Ok, today I disconnected the engine battery cables to put on the BatteryMinder wiring harness. This rebooted/reset the multiplexer and of course the driver's side camera is working for the moment. I did notice earlier today when I was moving the MH around for the gardener that the "NO SIGNAL" blue screen went to all black with AV1 in the upper right corner. That's something new!

Switch driver and passenger camera position using cable where plug into mixer. The intent is to isolate the problem If the problem does not follow the the switch then it is the monitor otherwise it is the camera or mixer. Next switch back camera for side camera connection at the mixer. At this point you will know if the problem is the mixer or camera. This will help the repair shop as intermittent are an SOB to find.

I did that the first day when I found the multiplexer. Problem is in the camera or cable from the camera to the multiplexer. I did check the cable in the mirror arm and in area around multiplexer and driver's kick panel for possible cable issues. Since the monitor shows no signal when the turn signal is on, I assume the trigger is working. I am going to call the dealer today and see about warranty repair and how much is the silly little camera. Easy to change out.

Not working this morning, working in afternoon, now not!

Crazy, camera not working this morning. Later this afternoon I tried some new ignition keys and it was working. Went out after dinner and it's bucket not working, "NO SIGNAL".
Haven't spoken with the salesman or service manager yet. They were both busy and I didn't leave a message. Tomorrow!

We had issues with our cameras only working sporadically on our 3011DS. We would lose the side views off and on. Then, we lost the rear feed completely. Took it to our repair guy and he found the main cable to the camera display (which is mounted to our windshield on a separate display screen) was abraded and cut. I've attached a picture but I'm not sure if it will display or not. The cable runs under the dash area right behind our parking brake. Each time we set the parking brake, it would cut it a bit more. Finally, it cut the rear feed wire completely. This all started after owning the RV about 7-8 months since new. It was no longer under warranty so we paid to have it repaired. The cable is hard wired into the display unit so we replaced the cable and display screen. The display and cable unit was $275 plus two hours labor. Works great now!

Now I can get the driver's side camera to work, but onlyt after starting the engine multiple times, turning the device on and off plus using the turn signals a few times. Wonder if that camera has to warm up first?
