Camper & backup cam have different plugs

Hi all, I am new to this site.

I recently purchased a 2017 Salem Cruise Lite prepped with the backup camera mount and just the other day I purchased a Furrion Observation camera. I attempted to install the camera today (attempted being the key word). The plug on my Cruise Lite looks like the power plug used for PADS and other electronic devices and the one for the camera looks like the plug used for the ear piece used for the good ole transistor radios.
Has anyone else ran into this problem and what did you do?
Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Your Salem was probably wired for a Drive CL-718W. Our Wildwood was wired for that camera and not the Furrion.

No ideas yet? Only think I can think of is to cut the plugs off and hard wire them together. Any thoughts on this idea?

That is not a good idea. See post #2.

I was able to tie into the running light and everything works perfect. I used a heat gun and wire shrink tubing to make all connections water tight.

All well and good but.... He already has the Furrion (which I personally think is a better unit anyway) so, cut the wires, strip the insulation, slip on some heat shrrik tubing, solder the ends, slide the heat shrink over the soldered connections, heat to shrink and call it good.
