I just installed one on my Rockwood 8329SS which came prewired. Had to hook up to Tow Vehicle (TV) to get power and pair it up. The book says depending on your trailer they come prewired differently. Some hot all the time, some to running lights and some to backup lights. Mine was to running lights. Going to rewire to hot all the time with a switch. Want to be able to use it when not hooked to TV.

Furrion Backup Camera

Not sure what type of trailer you have but if it is one of the metal ones that may be blocking the signal from getting to the receiver. You might want to buy an antenna extension cable to move the antenna to the front of your trailer to see if that helps.

I bought a 7 pin socket and jumpered the 12 Vdc(pin 4) to the running lights (pin 3). I use it to have the running lights on when set up but it also powers up the camera.

I use a 10 amp standard fuse twisting the metal tabs to fit in trailers 7 way for the same effect. But it is also fuse protected. FREE, well if you have fuse laying around.

Those are both good ideas and a quick fix. Had not thought about doing it that way. Thanks
