2015 Forest River Salem Hemisphere 368RLBH

Just purchased a 2015 Forest River Salem Hemisphere 368RLBH. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is pre-wired for a backup camera and what size generator is needed to run it? any help and advice would be appreciated.

If your unit is gen. ready (for ease of hook-up) check out the RV salvage yards for a RV generator the size you need (probably 4000w) and simply put it in place........this is what I did , got one actually larger than was required purchased , shipped to me for 2k , it was liquid propane fueled , bought a forklift tank and was good to go---------otherwise I am sure you can get it wired in by someone competent.
Total deal $2200 fueled and running----unit is an Onan 6300LP.........Less $ than some portable units , don't have to lug it around , no worry about it "walking away" !
