I never thought about how the stereo is sucking precious boondocking juice too. Good idea Rock.

I will bet our units have all kinds of power sucking stuff. I wonder if the six point leveling and Schwintec slide computer controllers are also hot all the time.

Our Schwintek controllers are hot all the time. Not sure about the leveling system (ours is 4 point), but it wouldn't surprise me as both systems are made by LCI.

We do have a rear camera switch in our Eagle (built in October) and not positive, but IIRC it's in the Utility Center near the second water pump switch.

That's where the Jayco engineer told me I would find mine...nope.
Looks like October was when they added switches.

The fantastic fan is hot all the time too, don't know how much juice it takes but there's a red led in there always on.

Dealership taking care of me on the camera issue. Be carefull when ordering the Furrion and make sure to buy the 48 model that works under speed on freeway and stronger signal strength. Furrion also suggests wiring to clearance lights as constant power will burn out camera.

The problem with wiring to tails lights is that u cannot plug the head unit into bedroom 12 volt socket if u want to monitor outside. Since mine is prewired I will find the wire and install switch

I just picked up my Jay Flight 28RLS, went to have a camera installed to the pre wiring and was advised that the only pre wiring is for the 12 volt power supply and that it only works with a wireless camera kit.
So they ran a wire over the roof and down to the hitch, works ok but looks a bid ugley on the roof

Why did u not get a wireless like factory uses? Does the roof wire run to the front of trailer to a transmitter?

I prefer to have a hard wired camera, i beleive its a better picture with less static.
Also i went for the audio version. so i can hear when i run over a kids bike and can turn it off when my partner starts yelling.
So as i said the cable runs from the top of the roof to the hitch where a plug is installed - then i have a short cable that plugs into the camera wire at the hitch and a plug on the back of my car - this runs to the center console where i can plug into my monitor screen -
I also have a rear car camera and an option for a side camer as the monitor has a 3 way switch.
I can send you the Canadian company details that supply all this stuff if you want?
