Tried to install a back up camera

I need some advice..please.
So, the camper is wired for a back up camera. We purchased a Furrion Backup Camera System Model FRC12TA-BL. Got the ladder...scooped snow...took the cover off the rear housing and there is at least 6 feet of excess wire! We tried pushing the wire back into the camper and the wired only went in about 6" and then no more. There isn't room for the camera and all the wire! I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

I installed the backup/observation camera (which has a wider view, for changing lanes etc) a couple of months ago, and there was about 6-9" of cable, certainly not 6ft !
I'd suggest cutting the cable shorter, and splicing the end with the plug back onto the rest of the cable (you could even just use smaller wire nuts, since it's just a 12v cable).
If the camper is relatively new you should be able to get the dealership warranty dept to fix the excess cable as a warranty item, since someone on the production line obviously messed up.
Good luck !

It pulled fine. I was a little concerned with the numbers going into it simply because I had no idea what the truck weighed. I figured it would handle it ok, but if not we would have some time to sell the 2500 and look for a dually if needed. However, rolled into the CAT scales just a few miles from the dealership and weighed the truck with the family and a full tank of fuel.

3920 front
2900 rear.

Stopped in for the $2 re-weigh with the trailer and about 1/2 tank of water.

4180 front
5420 rear
10860 trailer axles
20,460 total weight.

I had went back and forth on putting an air bag kit on it this week, but decided I wouldn't have time and would wait to see how the spring pack looked loaded. It handled fine, and still had plenty of travel but I am going to add them anyway.

I'm happy, the CFO is happy, and the kids are happy.

Ready to camp now!

Took the camper to the dealership (Orlando RV) service dept this morning, to get them to fix the shower door which was out of alignment, and was hitting the bottom of the frame.
I only made the appt yesterday, and surprisingly they were able to fit me in next day (which is unheard of).

This afternoon I replaced all of the internal door handles (master bedroom, master bath, and 1/2 bath by the bunk-room) with handles with privacy locks. (bought for about $12 from home depot). Since the original latches had no flange, and the replacement did, I had to chisel/cut a cut-out in each door for the lock flange.

High & Low Voltage Protection (Low <104, High 132>)
Lost/Open Neutral Protection
Frequency Protection (Low <51Hz, High 69Hz>)
Open Ground Protection
Polarity Protection
Built-in adjustable time delay for A/C compressor
Voltage Meter
Frequency Meter
Built-in: Surge Fault Indication and Amperage Meter

Yes you can- just run a jumper wire from line 1 to line 2 so it can detect voltage.
