I just added to the other post about pulling fuses and found what circuit mine is wired to. Once confirmed that it is rear light switch I will add another for camera. I was told I was getting the same as Grumpy but that was not so. Pretty lame to change what they had a go wireless from camera. I only have two trips but camera worked 99% of time but seemed to be a frame to frame delay. Might also be running a cable on roof to a mid point antenna like the other post .

Rock .. As long and the cable isn't any thicker than the cable I used, it will fit behind the vinyl molding. Then go under the trailer to the front and put the antenna in the propane compartment. Don't go across the roof if you dont have too.

Looking at ur pictures my cap molding is way different than yours. Mine is a metal rail screwed down with the vinyl pushed over the metal rail and than sealed. I removed a piece at the bottom and there is no way u can run anything but a small thin wire. Under warranty I do not want to even mess with a seal. When I do my big trip this summer and get tired of the slow motion video I have a plan. My camera is mounted lower than yours from the factory. So the wire will still have to run up about a foot to the top of the cap. I can than run it on the roof over to the ladder and tie wrap it to the back of the rail to the bottom and than to the frame. My other is to just run it on the roof to the rear ac and mount the antenna there. Right now the antenna is about a foot lower than the cap since it is on the camera. The run to the rear ac is about 15 ft and I bet the reception will be great.

Your install was premo and that would be the way to go for anyone with your type rear seal. Jayco pushed the limit on the wireless camera. Maybe they will learn how unhappy we r and on 2017 models fix the problem of bad reception they created. Just like the roof issues. They offer full body paint why no armor coating like edatlanta did with his. Rubber roofs suck one tree branch and that is it.

On your voyager camera is the picture kind of like slow motion like a very short lag between the frames. And if so did moving the antenna forward make that go away

Yes we used to have a very segmented picture (kinda like a flip book that the pages are flipped real slow) and it would freeze frames also. I have not had 1 instance of either of those since I moved the antenna. I very very happy with the result.

Tom, did you get anywhere with this back up camera install?
With the help of Mustang Don there was no solid idea to make the camera come on by plugging the cable into the truck.
Mustang came up with the idea of using a 1 channel on/off wireless control (around $15 on Amazon). Keep one transmitter in the truck and one in the ground control controller box, to turn the camera on or off at the trailer.
Good plan, and sort of high tech, and convenient if you forget to turn it on while driving.
For me, I would end up losing a remote and without installing a little LED light to show if the camera was on or off, I wouldn't know if it was on or off.

So I kept it simple and installed a illuminated rocker switch beside the controller. I can't hook up or take the trailer off the truck without opening the little door. I will see the switch and turn the camera on or off.

NorthPoint back up camera mod...cheap.

Very clever indeed! I am about to order my camera and wiring to add to my rig. I'm going to just hook it up to the running lights to activate it. I also need to get a new head unit for the truck that has a video in so I can monitor from it instead of a separate monitor. Once I get all my parts and pieces together, I'll post it
