Just to give an update, I had the rig in to County RV in El Cajon, CA (little ad because they do good work) to have a tire pressure monitoring system installed. Asked them if they could look at either hooking my GPS system to the rearview camera to use it as a monitor, or moving the existing monitor. Turns out it didn't work to hook up to the GPS, but they were able to move the monitor.
They mounted the monitor and my GPS on the dash and then put in a piece of black plastic to cover the hole where the camera was. It looks great, fits with the rest of the panel. Attached are two pictures. One showing the view from the driver's seat, the other from farther back to show spot where monitor used to be.
I love it! I can clearly see my rearview camera monitor and neither device blocks my field of view of the road. For those of you who are a bit handier than I am (I'm working on it), you could probably do this yourself easily.
I'm getting ready to leave San Diego for the first time. Retiring and heading east at the end of September. Getting everything ready to go. Excited and just a bit anxious. The first part of the trip takes me east on highway 8 up and down a mountain pass (4000 feet) to the desert. I've driven it in my Jeep, so I'm familiar with the road. But it will be different in the RV pulling the Jeep behind.
