TV light/brake cable

321 RLTS Eagle, 2010, anyone know how the cable from pin box goes to back of rv ? I am not sure where it gets exposed so I can tie on to the backup lead or tail light lead. I think ours comes thru the propane compartment but the jacket is off the cable that runs thru there & the gauge just looks too small for things like brakes.
I couldn't find a way to run a wire up to pin box other than exposed or is there a trick that maks it easy ?
I am hooking up the wireless camera that goes along with my Garmin rv760. I went ahead & mounted transmitter on OS wall by front landing gear & powered off of a slide controller to check out & works great.

Why not just tap into one of the rear marker lights?

What is the point of a backup camera for a FW?

Seeing what is behind you is good. Being able to back into a spot without a spotter is really good! I'm getting one. Maybe I'm confused though, why is the fact that it's a 5th wheel make the back up camera any more, or any less useful than in any other application?

Because the Garmin system uses a separate transmitter wired to the camera. You mount camera where ever & run a video cable to transmitter at front. Transmitter is wired to power source.
