ATTENTION: The site team has moved all posts about the Yada wireless camera into it's own thread to keep from creating confusion.

Question about battery power for this system

Hello friends. Sorry to resurrect an old thread with my first post. I'm the proud owner of a new 2016 FR 32BHDS. I have purchased one of these camera systems (incredibly cheap now &#128522 and wondered if anyone has attempted to power the camera from one of those portable external USB power supplies that are now so readily available. I'm sure it would require a splice of the power cable to the usb male end of a cell phone charging cable, as described in some of the posts in this thread.
If not, I may try. Thanks!

Answered my own question... Took a trip to Harbor Freight to pick up the magnetic parts tray when I remembered... I have an emergency jump starter from Harbor Freight with a 12v outlet built in that will supply power to the camera for up to 20hrs. By the way, the jump starter cost $50. If you are especially challenged/scared of messing up electrically like me, pick up the inverter at HF for $20 and plug the camera in using the supplied power cable.

DONE!

Good deal. Please, Let us know if the camera/monitor works out well for you. It has for me.

Wonder if I could somehow mount this into the pre-installed Furrion camera mount on my 5er.
The Furrion system seems so overpriced.

My Truck already has a backup camera, with 8" screen, so my other option is to splice something into that, without using a separate screen

Probably Not

Given that this camera is not waterproof, it is not a good choice for permanent mounting outside the trailer. Part of what makes this system so appealing is the fact that it can be moved around easily. Perhaps another camera meant for outdoor use would work with your mount. Good luck!

I didn't read all the posts..........But if u own a gopro and an ipad, you can mount the gopro on the back and use the ipad to watch. It's all done wireless!!!!!


Problems would be you would have to turn the gopro on manually before you back up.

Ram truck?

I installed a system from customtronix. They are from Europe.
It is a harness and software.
It unlocks the navigation while in motion. I also added a front camera, mounted in my grill.
They also have another video input.
Very nice system.

Nope, 2016 F250
The main 8" screen is hooked up to the backup camera in the tailgate.

There's also a composite video+ audio input in the dash storage box, but to use that I'd have to disable the backup camera (a couple of menu navigation presses).
I'd also like to use the camera while driving for checking clearance on lane changes, but I can't have the video input on while using the radio/audio since it'll try to play audio from that a/v input instead when it's selected
