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...

In my 2016 26BH, the rear middle marker light has an extra black wire capped off and attached to the marker wire harness. You need to pull off marker light and pull wires out of hole. If you scroll back through the posts in this thread you will find pictures of what to expect if it's anything like mine. I connected the positive wire of the camera to the extra black wire and tapped into the one of the white wires for the camera negative.

Jayco did provide the instructions for the Voyager camera. You can also find it hear on the forum.

Hope this helps! Good luck with yours.

Duke

My 2017 JayFlight has the extra power wire behind the rear center marker light as well. That extra power wire is always hot from what I've read. I'd assume that's where they all are...

Hey Duke I finally got around to installing my camera. Followed your instructions, and it made install very easy. Just a question, my camera is powered all the time? It is apparently drawing power off the battery? Is there a switch in my coach somewhere to turn it off? I connected red wire from camera to extra capped wire in center marker light, connected black wire from camera to white wires as you did.
It works great, paired right up with monitor, just staying on?

Thanks your help and responce has been invaluable on this project!

Thanks for the info

Hello Tom!

Glad all went well with the installation. Yes, the camera is on 24-7. I have not found any switch yet. I have been thinking about pulling fuses to see which one shuts it down, but have not got to it yet.

Cheers!

Duke

Now to figure out how to enable the camera to send pictures or video while it is in storage. Solar powered web cam kind of thing.

My husband mentioned he wanted a backup camera. I just ordered this backup camera for my husband for Christmas off of Amazon. Does anyone know if the 2015 white Hawk dsrl is prewired? If not, I can call Jayco with the vin # and ask.

Hi Duke, I am going to order the Furrion FOS48TAPK-BL backup camera today you mentioned there is a PDF document for installation somewhere on the posts. May I ask where it might be.. I am anxious to install it on my 2017 24RBS

Hi Gary!

Here you go, please keep in mind that Jayco's instructions are for the Voyager camera, but it gives a basic idea. With the Furrion camera the hole the wires go through are behind the camera and the hole is covered by the camera hiding the wires, unlike the Voyager shown below.

Some people actually replace the center marker light with the camera which will probably be a little easier since the wires are right there and you do not have to drill an extra hole for the wires. Not that I've had any issues with my camera all, but if I was to do it over, I think I would have gone this route. Here is an example:


Another thing to keep in mind is if you use the extra wire provided behind the center marker light for the camera power, the camera will be on 24-7. If you use the marker light power, the camera will only come on when you are hooked up to the tow vehicle and your parking lights are on.

Hopefully this link works, you should be able to do a direct download of the PDF without any issues:

Good luck with it! Don't forget to share some pics when you get it done. I have been very happy with mine!

Cheers

Duke
