Added camera for hooking up 5th wheel.

Didn't want to spend to much.I found a cheap camera and monitor system , I connected it to my tool box , didn't want to drill any holes in truck. Covered with a 1x1 diamond sheet from Homedepot.
Screwed monitor stand to drink cup top to secure in cup holder for easy removal. Also came with a wireless camera for rear of 5th wheel. Will install tomorrow.

Thanks so much for the GPS cup holder hack. It's a wonderful solution. Mine keeps falling off and waking up the DW.

cup holder

Cup holder works great for me . Just didn't want to mount the monitor permanent in the cab, only use it when connecting up to go on trips.
Finally had a chance to install the camera on the 5th wheel. Will see how the system works on my next trip out.

camera system.

I purchased the camera and monitor on Amazon , also ordered a small camera for the hitch hookup. The small camera needs to be hard wired but the one on the 5th wheel is wireless, just need to hook up power and gnd to one of the rear lights on back of the 5 th wheel as I did.
