Keeping Camera on Toad

Is there anyway to keep your back up camera on so that you can monitor you toad?

Most units, yes. But I think the folks on here who can walk you thru it will need to know what your coach (?) is and the make/model of your monitor. For instance coach (listed under my signature) has a Magnadyne 4 and know the menu process for that. If you're pulling with a pickup or suv then I am not sure but doubt it. Please go ahead and list those details of what you're driving and you'll get some good advice.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have a 2017 FR3 32DS. Unfortunately I don't know the back up camera model since its in storage.

Hi, we also have a 2017 32DS
Look up my post on this Kentucky Bob
Under "camera upgrade"
Let me know if you have any questions.

Basically I added a separate monitor on tha dash and fed the rear camera into it so I always see the back end of the coach and my towed car.

There should be a button below the screen that allows you 3 different views, left, right, rear. You just push until you get the rear view. I keep ours on rear so that when it gets turned on it shows that view.

On My 2016 FR3 30DS I can. In the settings menu of the radio there is an option to have the rear camera 'always on', which i 'starred' so its easier/quicker to get to while driving if I forget to double check.

My cam is always in the rear view unless i use the blinker in which case it switches to the left or right. After the blinker goes off it switches back to rear. This is the function of the splinter multiplexer used with sensors. My model is from REAR VIEW SAFETY (rvs).

On our 2015 FR3 30DS with in dash entertainment system (Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS, DVD, radio, Sirius, cameras, etc.), you press the main button on the left and the settings screen will appear. Toggle the "Rear View" choice to keep it on or off.
