Wireless Rear Camera

Just brought home my 2016 Cedar Creek 38CK. I cannot get the camera and the receiver to 'pair'. I have held the unit right next to the camera (within 2 inches) while I held the camera button down for the two seconds. My next step tomorrow is to see if the camera has power. If it doesn't does anyone know where this wire picks up power?

I think you have to hook the wires together back by the camera, male/female fitting.
Dealer must have paired mine, plugged in the dash mount monitor, worked.

Welcome to the forum

Is this camera and receiver one you purchased or did it come with the Cedar Creek?
What brand of camera/receiver is it?

We actually paired ours yesterday.

The instructions are fairly clear on how to do it.

Parking/driving lights have to be on.

You need to enter the pairing mood on the dash unit and have someone at the camera press the button on the bottom of the camera for 2 seconds. It took us 2 tries but we were successful.

If you didn't get the instructions go to Furrions website to download them.

Fellow Chevy/GMC owners, does the camera work with just the daytime headlights or do you need to run with the clearance light on?

Thanks

Daylight running lights don't power up the rear lights. You will need to have your headlights switched on so that your tail lights and ultimately your trailer lights have power. Then your rearview camera will also be able to draw power from the trailer lights.
