I used silicone on threads and around bracket also.

Then I ran the wires straight up behind camera to trim on top carefully installed wire into channel and put trim back.

Then over to the side trim attached the connection for the TV wire it says it is waterproof connection. But I added heat shrink and same tape also. It is exposed only at the top corner and is not very noticeable.

Then into the trim molding going down the side and out the bottom and into the existing wire harness under the trailer to the front.

Had plenty of wire I took the extra wire and looped it in the Aluminum battery box and mounted the umbilical on the front of the box.

It really was easier then I thought it would be. I am extremely happy with it and the monitor supports three cameras also.

I also mounted a small camera on truck to see the ball works great just switch the view.

Hope this helps!

So your saying that roundish puffy plastic trim? Take it off and put the wires behind and snap the trim back in place?

Also, was the wireless troubles on the longer TTs and 5ers? I'm, only 27' so maybe the shorter signal distance would work well. Whatdaya think?

Happy RVing,
Jeff
It seems there can be a lot of interference with the wireless ones from what I have read. The one I bought never flickers or loses picture going down the road.

If you decide to go wireless, do not purchase any product that does not have a 300' transmission signal. The unit also needs to have an external antenna, or your signal will probably not be very good. Forget the license plate cameras, a waste of hard earned dollars.

I just installed a Furrion FOS48TA-BL on my Starcraft Launch. The Starcrafts come pre-wired and with the camera mount pre-installed. 4 bars on a 31' trailer. Search this forum using the word "Furrion" and read the reviews. Picked mine up on Amazon for $325. They were up to $355 today. The Furrion website is asking $499.

I purchased the Rear View Safety RVS-770613-213 wired camera system as well. I have finished installing and wiring my TV and will hopefully be wiring the FW this coming week. After hearing so many people talk about the issues with the wireless cameras, I decided to go with the wired option and just skip the future headaches.
