Rear Camera Direct Wire
Wondering if anyone has done a direct wire for the rear camera. I have the Furrion prewired system, but I went on the cheap and bought one off of Amazon. It has a nice 7" monitor screen and a camera kit to mount right into the prewired system. However, with a distance of about 30 feet (even got additional antennae from manufacturer to bring it to about 25 feet) the thing is mostly searching for signal with a black screen. Seems to happen especially after passing right when I need to see the other vehicle to switch lanes. (Murphy's law).
So, my question is, instead of the "wireless" I was thinking of running a wire from the camera to the tongue of the camper, and then one from the monitor to my bumper. When hooking up I would then take an additional wire to hook the two together for a "direct wire" system.
