RV EYE

Picked up a 2016 Freedom Express 292BHDSLE in February that came with the new RV EYE backup camera. The system worked fine during the PDI and while it was in storage. Took first trip last weekend and system does not have power. All other systems worked as they should. Does anyone have any experience with this to know where it gets its power from?

I talked to the service department at the dealer and as this is new to them they did not have any immediate help, other than to bring it in. Well I don't want to lose the use of the trailer for the summer and this is not critical, so will continue to troubleshoot myself until A) I determine the problem or B) camping season is over I they can work on it in the fall!

Where does this camera wire in at? Check to see if it works with the lights on.Also check to see if it only gets power when Truck is in reverse.All I can think of if you have checked the 12v fuses.

Many B/U cameras only work when the TV is in reverse. Check the fuse block in the TV for the fuse for the B/U lights. Your TV should have a separate fuse for the trailer lights ( B/U, turn, brake. 12V aux) from TV lights.

Check and see if you get power when your running lights are on. Quite often they power the cameras that way. Were the running lights on when you did your PDI and when you were at the storage area?

Other than that, time to start looking for fuses.

Thanks for the responses. The RV Eye is a wireless system that works through and app on a smart phone/tablet. It worked during the PDI with no TV connected. It was on shore power at the time. I will start to check the fuses, however everything else worked on the trailer. There may be an inline fuse somewhere that I need to look for.

It's got to get power from somewhere!
