My f-150 came with a plug to cap the camera connector if I ever removed the tailgate. For this instance, I'd investigate t-ing off of that plug for both cameras. Then only the signal wire needs to be put on an A/B switch. Effectively, both cameras would be powered when in reverse, but you are only using the selected video feed.

Thanks Flapper, you could use the plug to adapt to the 5er camera. That would be the easy way of doing it.

I do not have the Ford backup camera option so I was not sure as to how they did it.

I did something simliar with our last 5th wheel. I had a backup camera installed but no monitor. The wires were cut near the pin. I spliced in a 4 pin plug on the end. I added a 4 pin to my truck. I have a dvd player. I ran it into that, put in a switch for power for the camera and it worked quite well. It seemed like the only time I used it was to watch what was going on behind me while driving.
