Where is the rear camera switch

Picked up the new FBTS last Wednesday. Have an appointment Monday to get the Goodyears put on. Planning on adding the Voyager camera myself. I emailed Jayco customer service and they said the power wire is taped to the wire on the middle rear clearance light. They also said the switch is in the battery compartment. I haven't checked for the power wire yet, but I cannot locate any switch in that compartment. Anyone have a 2016 that can point me in the right direction? Also, any install tips from someone who has added the camera appreciated. Thanks, Tom

Prewire is kind of a misnomer. The camera will be connected to the hot wire of the marker lights. If you have the camera box pre mounted you will have to remove the cover and the mount to find the wire. You have to turn your lights on to activate the camera because it is wired to the marker lights on your unit. I am not sure about a switch. Ours will not work with reverse. We have to turn our headlights on which turns the marker lights on, It is pretty easy to install. Hope this is helpful.

During a different discussion with a Jayco engineer we started talking about the camera wire and he told me the switch should be in the water docking station
I didn't have a switch and we came to the conclusion that it was because my build date was early.
Obviously if you had one in your docking station you would have noticed, so maybe you had an early build date?

Edit... I just noticed you said you just picked up your rig. That cancels out an early build date.
Check the docking station.

It's not in there. There's a plug that looks like a 12 volt connector, probably for solar prep. From the stickers on the camper, it appears to have a 12/15 build date. The plot thickens.

My HT has a switch in the front wall of the battery compartment and a big sticker on the door for the wireless camera.

No sticker and I don't see the switch. Customer service checked the serial number and said it was supposed to be there. Thanks for the info.

The switch is in the battery box compartment on the right hand wall (wall facing truck). I had a camera installed on my trailer, which I just picked up on Monday. I am learned a lot about cameras lately as the camera I requested and paid for was not the one installed on my trailer. I went with the Furrion camera system but the dealership installed the cheaper version that is back up only (12) and not the observation model (48) that I request. I am 2.5 hours away from dealership and trying to work issue out (waiting for a call back / answer to my email). Seems they forgot now that they have my check! Also, I spoke to the furrion rep and the camera should be wired to clearance lights as constant power will burn up the camera as they are seeing this in the field for warranty returns.

Do we have the same model. Pinnacle 36FBTS. My batteries are in the front storage compartment. Just checked again, I'm not seeing no switch or sticker. I starting to think somebody forgot something on the assemble line.

Sorry - I have a 29.5bhds so maybe in another spot if yours has it. Mine had the sticker on the compartment door. I would wire it up to the clearance lights anyway

Which Voyager model are you looking at? We like the 7-inch screen set-up. What about other camera system? Have you looked at other brands/models?

We want to have ours done as well before July.
