Back up camera wiring

Working on a 2015 wildcat 327ck. Unit is presided for back up camera but it is not hot. Not with lights or reverse. We cannot find where it should be getting it's power from. Any ideas?

Well, it has to be 12V so I guess I would start at the fuse panel. Any missing fuses?

No missing fuses. The hot wire is yellow and there is no yellow wire in fuse panel. We really thought it might be tied to running lights but, that's not the case. It's not connected thru the reverse wire coming from truck. That dead ends at junction box behind hitch. Really wish to connect to that wire.

I think you have to have the system hooked to the trailer lights to work. I may be wrong but do not believe the trailer has back up lights but if it did then you could go from there. Someone mentioned that at the junction box you mentioned there was a wire there connected to nothing thee. That may be it. Later RJD

Yeah it definitely doesn't have reverse lights. It is prewired but where is the other end of wire. Now I feel easiest solution is to rewire from known hot wire. I will call FR in the morning see if they can help.

Did you check the Marker lights at top rear of trailer wire maybe in the middle light. Later RJD

I did check to see if wire becomes hot when markers are hot. But didn't look to see if camera wire is just tucked in behind the light. Just seemed like a needle in a hay stack. Under which light would I find it or if I could find it. So didn't go that route just yet.

Ours only works with the pick up running lights on. Reverse didn't do anything. Know it's simple but the furrion manual didn't say anything and we thought it was powered into the backup lights.

Mine was wired to the running lights in the top of the rear wall. If its not there right now you can run your own jumper from there to the camera. Shoud only be about a 1 to 2 foot run. Then your camera will run when the tv lights are on.
