Back up camera

I know that my 5th wheel has no reverse light, but is it wired for it. I want to power my back up camera to the reverse wire on the 7pin trailer plug.
Does anyone know if there is a wire and what color it would be?

Ok i was just reading the owners manual and it said yellow for back up.
So i went out to look for a yellow wire, and none to be found
I guess i will have to power it some other way.

Power it from the roof marker light or the lic plate illumination light depending on where you want to mount the camera. BUT before you do make sure it will transmit from the back of the RV all the way to the tow vehicle... many wireless ones wont.

Like Seann45 said test it first.

When you do test it, make sure your monitor is in the truck where you will be keeping it, engine running to ensure that there is no engine noise interference with the monitor/signal. and the camera is temporarily somewhere behind the TT.

With my license plate camera I only made it 3/4 of the way back to the TV before the signal started fading, and next to no signal when I was in the TV.
Good Luck
