I have a 2015 Wildcat 282RKX with a factory-installed camera. I think my wiring is typical of all recent prewired Wildcat 5th wheels, even those that didn’t come with a factory-installed camera.
My camera stays on as long as the battery supplies power to the 12 VDC distribution panel. In other words, the only way to turn my camera off is with the battery disconnect. This wiring oddity has been commented on many times before in this forum because many thought the power should come from the running lights, however, that is not the case. I confirmed this with Wildcat Chris before he left for another job.
I’ve tried removing all of the 12 VDC fuses in my power distribution panel but my camera stayed on. I believe the camera must have its own inline fuse connected somewhere between the battery disconnect switch and the 12 VDC power distribution panel.
I haven’t researched my wiring any further than mentioned above so I don’t know how my camera is getting its power.
If your trailer is wired like mine, perhaps your fuse is blown or missing. In any event, I recommend you look for a tie-in between the battery disconnect and the 12 VDC power distribution panel. Perhaps you’ll find your yellow wire there.
Please share what you find as other may be interested in how the camera power is wired into their Wildcats.
