Should have both pos and neg wires. Will probably be black and green wires.

As the Georgetown body is fiberglass I suspect the running lights should have both plus and Gnd but will only be hot when the running lights are on. I like to have my camera on when I am running to see behind me and watch the toad. What if you sent the wire up the tube if your ladder?

The ladder is a great ideal but I don't know if I can use it.
As you can see in the photo, the yellow and black leads have to be installed inside the body somewhere. On the camera end, those wires have to go inside the body as well to connect to the lead in the photo. You can see that the wireless receiver will not fit in the ladders tube.

If I am not mistaken, but what you have in the picture is the transmitter. Doesn't the yellow and black plug into the camera? The other end hooks to the power supply ( running lights). You should also have a monitor inside that will be power from a 12v (cigarette lighter) source?

Or not, I may be wrong, but that's how mine was hooked up.

Your right on both ends! I gave the wrong terminology.
In the back of my Motorhome, there is a large double door closet with a light, to the left of the closet is 5 draws and an open upper cabinet for a TV.

There is no way I can access the area between the ceiling and roof. Unless I make a square access panel. I don't even know yet, but I'm hoping I will see the top marker light wires.

I even thought to drill a hole from the outside next to the center top marking light all the way through to the inside of the closet, this was I can feed the transmitter wires to the camera outside and let the transmitter rest in the closet. For power, I thought to take the hole made outside and tap into the marking light next to it.

Unfortunately, I will only have power when the parking lights are on.

Right now I do not know of any other areas to draw power from.

Any suggestions. I'm sure im not the only one who installed a wireless camera in a Motor home??? Somebody on this forum must have an idea on where to get power.

Can you use the power from the light for the camera? You would probably need a switch so you don't drain the battery when not in use. You might be able to hide the access panel in that closet.

That's my first option. I'm waiting to see if anybody else has another ideal.
