Rear view system only works in reverse.....

I ran over a piece of truck tire in the road, I was able to straddle it but after that I noticed my rear view wasn't working. I don't know if these two events are related or not. When I got home and started backing into the port, I noticed the rear view WAS working. It only works when the transmission is in reverse.

I've climbed under and looked for anything obvious like some wires loose etc but didn't see anything.

Any ideas? I'm searching for any manual I might have for the rear view system. Thanks.

dreamer.

Not sure your brand mine is a in dash radio combo to be legal since it's a DVD also you have to wire in to reverse switch on the ground system or parking brake ground. That said I would look for a loose ground or simply ground the wire and bypass that feature

On mine, the default is to only work when in reverse. Press the power button and it stays on all the time.

Thank you for all of the excellent replies.

I hate to admit it but after checking the fuse to the thing I went back in to have another look at the monitor controls. There was a button that I had overlooked and sure enough, it was the standby/on button. Macantic nailed it much to my embarrassment.

(Please don't tell anyone).

I'm just learning this motorhome, I've only had it for 11 years.

Thanks again.

dreamer.
