Help with installation Furrion Rear View camera

We have a 2017 5th wheel Chaparrlal 336TSIK. I am trying to add a Furrion rear camera. This trailer has a housing mounted at the top of rear back wall. When I removed the cover on the housing there is no electrical plug - in for the camera. There are 2 wires looped in the housing, a green and a white wire. I assume they go to the running lights. The harness wire that came with the camera has a red & black wire on it.
How do I connect the wiring?

Thanks for your help.

I'm trying to remember my install. I do remember I bought the wrong model camera and it came with the housing (so it had extra parts) you may need to take of that housing and look behind? I thought mine had a coax cable but cant remember.

Green is supposed to be ground and white is supposed to be neutral - according to the national electricians code.
Do you have a DC voltmeter?

With your running lights on one of the two wires either the green one or the white one should read 12 volts to ground

I can't check it now. After I find out which is the 12 Volt ( hot wire ), do I assume the other is the ground ? Then do I hook up one wire from the camera harness to the 12 volt ( hot wire ) and the other to the other wire ?

Thanks for all your help

Yes, the one that reads 12 volts is you hot, goes to red for power to camera.

then the black wire on the harness from the camera would go to the other wire on the trailer ?

Mine was white-ground and white with a stripe-hot. The camera is red-hot, black-ground.

Don't forget that you will probably have to turn on the tow vehicle headlights to see power at the camera wires
