The only Info I got from them was a Jayco page regarding a Voyager camera installation.
Again thank you very much for the help.


You're very welcome Tom! Glad I could help! Good luck with your install. Looking forward to hearing back on how things went for you and some pics!

One last thing, I used regular twist on wire nuts to connect wires since the camera wires were such a small gauge (Orange wire nut for the 12V feed wires and a yellow for the ground wires). The quick splice connectors shown in the picture do not slice into the insulation of the small camera wires enough to make contact.

Best Regards,

Duke

Can the camera angle be adjusted or is it in a fixed position? EX. - if you wanted to keep an eye on a bike rack, cargo mount, etc?

You can adjust it up and down. I had it set so I could just see the spare tire when I did the install, but found I needed to adjust it up a notch to see cars a couple of car lengths behind the TT.

Furrion Wireless High-Speed RV Observation System - 26BH

I've seen some folks say the running lights need to be on for the camera to have power. If you connect to the pre-wired backup camera line as you did Duke_26, does the camera always have power.....or only when the running lights are on?

The camera always has power, no need for running lights to be on. This is on a 2016 Jay Flight 26BH that said it was pre-wired.

Thanks for the info. Does the camera have an on/off function? What is the battery draw like when not in use?

No on/off function that I know of. I have not figured out yet if the feed to the camera is on its own circuit or not to be able to put a switch in. Some TT's from what I've read have a switch installed from the factory.

I have not used it yet without the TT being plugged in. I can't imagine it uses anymore than the carbon monoxide detector.

Nice thread! I just ordered this unit for my 2016 Jay Feather 25BH. I was about to order one of the $79 units from Amazon but the reviews from RV owners were not good on the cheaper units.

And about the power lead. I would think this would be powered only when plugged into the truck correct? Doesn't make sense for Jayco to have their camera powered at all times.

I think part of the reason it is powered all the time is because they also market it as "Campsite Safety and Security" since you can plug in the wireless monitor inside the TT...

Duke_26 and ScarabChris, I have a new 2016 North Point that has the same sticker saying I am prewired for camera. But for the life of me cannot find any info on the location of wires or install...did one of you say Jayco sent a PDF on the install for the Voyager camera? I have a wireless set that is put together from Amazon camera/transcender/receiver/monitor I ordered. I've hooked them all up to power and they work as far as sending vid. Now I'm ready to install but afraid to drill the first hole!
Any leads to locations of wiring would be SO appreciated...
