I asked about that issue when I was at the factory. They explained that it can't be done because of the type of camera. It's an "el cheapo" camera designed only for intermittent use... using constantly for long periods of time will burn it out.

Having said that, it CAN be rewired by taking the power from a source other than the power to the back-up lights. However, you then have to turn it on and off manually using the button on the mirror, each time you use it. Remembering not to leave it on too long at any one time... :-(

The solution was to add a wireless camera designed for extended use.

Back-up Camera Rewire

Just figured it out on my 2014 Redhawk 26XS. The camera and monitor in the rearview mirror are powered by the back-up lights. The storage compartment under the corner bed has removable side walls. Removing the long wall will expose the camera wiring. One cable is video, and the other 12v power and is a yellow wire looped and tapped into the yellow bu light wiring in a bundle. I move the tap to the green wire in this bundle, so the camera is on whenever I turn on the running lights. May change this later, but it's a start. Also don't know if the ir lights are on for night vision. But it works.
