I'd like to know too. We have an Apex 18bh and have been thinking of doing this.

None! Just used wired. Mine works great, cost about $75.00 with a 7" monitor.

I just ordered a commercial wireless unit from Tadibrothers and I'll let you know how it works for me as soon as I get the second camera back. The one on the TV is working great.

Any thoughts on sharing what your camera set up is? My mind reading powers have diminished greatly since I took a shower in the Krypton laced well water yesterday.

All from Amazon.com: And it was less than I remembered. $55.00 I used the supplied cable to rear of truck, which has disconnects, then on to the camera to rear of camper. I am absolutely pleased with this setup. Picture quality is fantastic for $50.

I'm planning to use my GoPro Hero 4 on the rare occasion I need a camera for backing up TT. Just suction cup mount it on rear bumper and use the GoPro app on my iPhone to remote view over WiFi (camera has it's own WiFi network). It was one of my justifications for getting the camera

I tried to use every possible excuse to get a go pro and still cannot believe I spent $400 on a camera. But it does take fantastic videos. I'll trow this one in there too!
