Also, how did you remove the Furrion plug to replace it with Tadi Brothers? Is it possible that the power (running lights) was on and shorted out in the exchange process? It may be that the running lights, though on the same circuit as the camera, route through a fuse before going to the camera terminal. If the camera shorted out, the running lights would remain on. A camera fuse is very low amperage. If that is so, you may want to check the fuse panel.
None of us being there, hopefully one of our guesses solves your problem.
Nice catch. When cutting the Furrion connector off and having it powered should kill a fuse but it would be the running light fuse. At least on my unit (Vengeance..very similar to the Grey Wolf) there is not a separate camera fuse. That "apparently" single line actually contains two pretty small gauge wires...positive and negative so a wire cutter will definitely short the system.

The connection for the Furrion is powered any time the running lights are on. It's designed and advertised to be an "observation camera", not a backup cam. The observation cameras, when working properly, are a great feature while driving. You can see things behind you that you'll never see in a mirror...even those ugly extended side mirrors.
