Talking My rearview camera

Although our 17Z is 'bout 18 ft long, I wanted to be able to see what was going on behind me while driving. So I bought a VR3 wireless Back up camera, ($73 including shipping on Ebay) that mounts on the license plate. I recently tested it in various locations on the rear of our camper to see which position gave me the best view. I'm gonna mount it on the rear of the unit in the center just below the rear bed. I'm not gonna use screws or drill any holes into the skin of the camper, gonna buy some 3M auto adhesive to attach the camera. It weighs just a few ounces. gonna run the wire for the 12V DC into the tail light assembly through the back wall and into the electrical enclosure. Gonna use a wide white auto pinstripe to cover the exposed wires. I have yet to decide on the power source, either wire it into the inverter or just attach it to the park lights. I used the park light idea to temporarily supply power to see which mounting gave me the best view. Also usuing the park light power gives me a 'remote' switch so I can turn the camera on and off from the TV, by usuing the light switch inside the truck, and I wont have to remember to turn off the camera when camping. The color display comes with a cigarette lighter plug and hard wiring, but I will use the plug so the whole thing remains portable.
I will post some pics when I do the mod, right now the spring rain has kept me from starting this project. For the price and hopefully ease of installation, this seems to fit the bill for me. Any tips or suggestions, or comments will be welcomed.............Shep
