2017 Jayco 330RSTS Travel Trailer

Hello Everyone : We have a new Jayco 2017 Eagle 330 RSTS Trailer. The paper
work on the unit says that it is pre-wired for a rear back-up camera. I pull
this beast with a 2016 Dodge 2500 Ram diesel. I talked with a Jayco rep at
corporate and she said that I can have a wireless camera installed ( she
said they recommend a voyager camera ). Install it in the back centered
below the center 12v light. Being that the Jayco is pre wired she said that
when I plug in my round 7 pin power cord from the jayco to my round
7 pin receptacle on my dodge truck and put my truck in reverse I will get
a camera view on my dodge ram monitor of whats behind when I am
backing up. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm not interested in
anything wireless. I don't want to be surprised if this does not work.
Any ideas on this issue would be nice. Also any ideas on a different
camera other than a Voyager like Jayco suggests.

Thanks
Jon- Luc

Every system I have seen is wireless. You have a separate monitor that you put on your dash. It isn't powered by reverse but rather is on all the time.

When they say pre-wired it means there is a power cable prewired to power the wireless camera.

There isn't a way to send video through the trailer's 7 pin connector to the head unit in your truck which probably has a backup camera. When you put it in reverse that will still work as it does now and you will get a nice image of your propane tanks.

Edit: As far as other options. I know that Garmin makes a camera (wireless again) but the difference is rather than have a dedicated monitor for the rear vision like the Voyager, the monitor is the GPS Screen. I don't have it but I know it is another option. I don't know if the camera is powered by battery or off the prewire that Jayco has in the camper. Here is a link.

The prewiring is just for power, not for a video signal. I have a Furrion camera. I'd say it's adequate. Signal cuts out for brief second here and there. Image quality is ok. If I was shopping, I would get whatever camera that claimed to have the widest field of view. With the Furrion, I can only see what's dead center behind me. Both corners are blind spots.
