In dash Weldex monitor removal

Before I tear my dash apart has anyone replaced their in dash Weldex backup monitor? I can see no easy way to get this out besides taking the dash cover off and I am tired of the on/off nature of this thing. Seems it only works when I don't need it.

I have the same backup monitor and had problems with mine going off and on ready to ditch it. So when I replaced all the lights in the dash cluster with LEDs I unscrewed the leads and got some (Terminal Grease) Dielectric Silicone Compound and applied it to the 6 or so little fingers then put it back together, works great. I run my Silverleaf through the same monitor.
If you do change it out I think you will have to remove the 5 screws then push the cover forward.

If you haven't already replaced it, and you need to, I recommend RVcams.com. They have been very helpful to me in finding the right replacement, since, as usual for electronic equipment,, everything is obsolete next month. Weldex recommended them to me and they take the time on the phone to help you figure out what you need. By the way, they fix monitors if they can still get parts for them. Mine was not one of those.

RV cams

I have the same comment about RVCams.com.

I was able to fix my 'flakey monitor' by jamming very small copper wires into the female side of the connectors. My theory is that the vibration makes them get loose over time. It was much easier than replacing the cable. When it starts happening again I can simply add more wires.

I tried this 'after' I replaced the original CRT with a LCD. Wish I had tried it sooner, the CRT was probably not the problem.

On my Sony, I did the same thing that Stroker did. Tighten the connections at the rear of the monitor. Been good for the last 8 years.

How did you gain access to the back of the Weldex?
