2014 Redhawk 31XL - Standby/On switch for backup camera?

Title says it all. I want to be able to watch the backup camera while driving to watch the bike rack. The manual says its possible by flipping the cameras switch from <standby> to <on>. Only problem is, I cant find the switch. There are a couple buttons on the rear view mirror. But they don't seem to do anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Is your backup camera integrated with your radio/nav system? Ours is on our 2011 greyhawk. that's how we turn the bc on.

That is probably the verbage for the TV monitor type camera. I would contact JAYCO to see if it can be done.

They told me it can't be done, but I'm sure there's a way.

Mine is too, and the monitor has 3 different screen views you have to scroll through. It's in the middle screen on the Clarion system (don't know what brand you have). Find a local service tech for that brand and ask them to explain it. That's what was recommended to me by ASA Electronics (Voyager Camera System). The local rep was very helpful.

Edit: On the Clarion system you scroll to different views by dragging your finger horizontally across the screen - drag slow or it goes from screen 1 to 3. Also, there are 3 small (very small) screen icons in the center of the monitor, near the bottom. When you get to the middle view, the rear view camera is one of the menu items.

Unfortunately, the Redhawk is different from the Greyhawk in that the monitor is integrated into the rear view mirror. It's not integrated into the radio.

Have any of you Redhawk owners figured a way around this. Is there a way to re-wire the camera/monitor to work while driving and not just when you switch into reverse? I'm towing a Camry on a tow dolly and I'd like to see what it's doing. I just purchased a wireless license plate camera with 7" monitor. It should me here next week, but I would sure like to use the on board unit too.

I'd like to know too! And, adjustment doesn't seem possible either, so if someone has a fix for that, let's have it, please!
