Weldex and Spare Electrical Connector Questions

I need help with two issues. I am installing a 10" monitor by the drivers side A pillar to connect to an old laptop mounted beside the drivers seat. I also want to connect the Weldex system to the new monitor so I can actually see what the camera is seeing without doing all kinds of contortions and and trying to see around the steering wheel ( wonder who designed that dash).

First question; do you know where to buy the small male pins that will fit into the road side electrical distribution panel connectors? There are already spare fused slots available but cant figure out where to buy the pins that fit or what to ask for. Radio Shack has some pins, but they are not correct. I want to use a spare 15a circuit for powering the laptop and monitor ( both will run off DC: one is 6a and one is 2 a).

Second question; I looked under the dash at the weldex cabling; what a mess! I see several video in connections to the Weldex, but did not see a video out for a second monitor. Does anyone know if I should just spilt the camera in signal so I can have the signal to both monitors or if there is another cable I have just not found? My new monitor has two RCA jack video inputs.

I appreciate any help. I am a flangehead and can fix about anything mechanical, but this wirehead stuff gets me. thanks again.

On our '06 Endeavor there is an /V interface module that you should be able to break off a video output for another monitor.. It is located under the dash among all the wiring mess. I don't think the Weldex monitor has multiple inputs but I could be wrong.

Thanks

Thanks Bob and Mark. I ordered the connector pins this morning from Bob's link and I found the interface Mark was talking about. Have to go by radio shack and see if they have a six pin connector like the one Weldex uses I can use for a tap. This should do the trick! thanks again

I added a separate monitor for my Aladdin system when our Weldex was replaced by a Voyager system. I did not need a special cable just a RCA cable for video. Check the interface box under the dash again for extra output on the box for additional monitors.
