We left the boondocking place this morning and I watched the BU Cam to see if it would turn on when I went onto reverse. The On/Off switch was Off and as soon as I started the engine the camera came on! So that's the way it is with my coach. The power switch on the monitor does nothing and the power comes from the ignition and turns on when you start. Simple! the only problem is that you can not turn it off when you are driving so I have to look at the toad all the time. That may be a good thing if the toad falls off!
