It is correct orientation on the screen. The camera also has a setting for the guide lines to display as well.

Mine did come with the adapter and it wasn't mentioned in the write up, but mine came from Amazon Canada and now they raised the price $25 and re did the write up. If you read it is seems to mention something about it but didn't call it an adapter.
I paid $38 Canadian...to you that would be like almost free in USD.

I was worried about no adapter, but it came with one. You can find them on Amazon for 17$.

[QUOTE=klassic;398679]The factory ones that I saw have an antenna built into the camera.../QUOTE]

They must have changed. Mine includes the Garmin RV760 and the transmitter is in the front cabinet. I leave the camera on while driving, but still get all the warning tones and notifications(speed limit changes, bad curves, low clearance etc). I also use the traffic portion when we get into back-ups.

Is it wired to your transmitter?
Now that makes more sense then putting the transmitter 45' away from the truck.
I guess that's what all the discussion was about early 2015, which system was Jayco using for 2016.

Still ,for me, I didn't need all the extra features or the monitor. And if it wasn't this cheap I wouldn't have even done it.
$60 and a Saturday without the wife nagging at me to do something around the house...makes this even a better deal.

Yep and it picks up power from the clearance light circuit up front.

Some good ideas in this thread but I still like my wired connection.

My 2 relay idea doesn't work to turn the camera on only when the truck 12v is plugged in. Once it's plugged into the truck in the relays activate and the battery power takes over when the truck is unplugged. The relays won't shut off.
Worked in my head at the time but now that I did a wiring diagram it doesn't.

My diode idea doesn't work either, as I've been informed the truck needs to sense the trailer battery voltage and the diode would block that from happening

So either it's hook up the camera to the tail lights and turn the truck headlight switch on, or install a switch at the trailer to turn the camera on and off.
I wanted a more thoughtless set up.
Or of course plug in a connecting wire from trailer to truck.

From the 7 pin connector there should be one wire that is a direct 12 volt connection (the charging wire) can't you tap into that wire for the power that way as soon as you plug in your 7 pin connector to the truck you should have power to the camera.

That's where the problem is CampingJ, the truck 12v attaches to the battery 12v so when the trailer cord is disconnected from the truck 12v, the battery 12v is still there powering the camera.
