Back up camera

We have a 2000 MADP with a Panasonic TW-CC100B back up camera. I didn't take anything apart yet and was wondering if the new cameras can use the came cable that runs to the front.

Thanks
Mike

Yes they can. The ease of which depends on the connector type. I think that Panasonic camera uses SVideo (see S-Video - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) connectors, so your replacement camera should use SVideo output to make it super easy. If you have audio you want to take that into consideration too. There are adapters available to convert from BNC (see BNC connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) to SVideo if you were to choose a camera with BNC output.

OK, I took the camera apart today and found a cable with 7 conductors. What kind of new camera can I use with this cable? See attached picture.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike... That is what they call an OEM connector (Original Equipment Manufacturer). You may have trouble finding a camera to plug and play but it is not impossible. If not you will have to replace the small white plug on the end. This would involve some soldering and what not so if your not comfortable doing that take it to a shop that installs cameras and they can do it no problem. If you are comfortable...

The black and red wires on the right side are 12V dc power (red +, black -)
The thicker white wire is the camera signal wire (the video signal travels on this wire) and the smaller black one is a ground. This ground helps 'drain' external electrical noise so that the video signal is not degraded by electrical circuits in the coach. You will note that they share that thicker grey cable separate from the other wires.
The white, green and yellow are signal wires, and at this point I have not been able to locate a wiring schematic showing which color does what. They are the audio and a control signal for the brightness of the camera. I am hesitant to guess but it is not impossible to figure them out. But it may not matter...
Except for the power wires (black and red) you can connect them wrong without damaging anything so a little trial and error wont hurt anything.

DO you have a replacement camera picked out? Plan on using a camera with audio capability? Just relacing the camera or the monitor as well?

Thanks for the help. I will be replacing the camera and monitor. I am comfortable with soldering so that is not a problem. I am just not familiar with video. I would like to have audio and also night vision if possible.

Thanks again
Mike

Cake then... Just purchase the new system, and when you get it let me know and I will tell you how to wire it to use the existing camera cable.

Sorry, but it is in under the dash so I can't, but here is a picture of the wires going into the box. The red, white, and orange are coming from the coach. The green, black, orange, brown, and red are coming from the box.
This is what Newmar Customer says about the box.
"This is the signal box, it takes the different signals and transfers it to the monitor. We do not have any documentation for this that I can send to you. Sorry."
