ADTH ROS 7 Rear Camera Question

Hopefully someone out there has at some time replaced a ADTH rear camera system and can answer a question.

I am attempting to replace mine with a color system. I really don't want to replace the cable run from dash to back. I have read that on my 2004 Allegro Bus this is not very easy.

The cable is a 4 pin (s-video looking cable). The 4 pins should be 1) Power 2) Video 3) Audio 4) ground video shield. Problem is I don't know which pin is which. I am very hopeful some one might have this information. My owners manual does not have this information. I have attempted to contact ADTH with out success.

Would also be interested in what camera/monitor people might recommend. Thanks in advance as to any advise you can offer.

If you stay with the same brand ADTH most likely the cable will be the same as you have now. I don;t know your problem but you still could have a bad cable and a new one can be run, just not the same path as was installed at the factory while they were building the coach. Good luck and keep us posted.

I bought and installed a system like the link below (from same vendor) several years ago, and it has worked great. I did run new cables as I installed two rear cameras. In your situation, you could buy the camera and monitor with the supplied short cable, cut the ends off your current cable, cut the connectors off the new cable, and splice (solder) new cable ends to the old cable.


You can find cheaper systems, but the one in the link above seems to be good quality and has worked well for me.

If you don't want to cut and solder, then you will have to run a new cable under the coach along the frame rails. Not technically difficult, but you will be crawling around under the motorhome.

Another option would be to work with RV CAMS, and buy one of their systems. (link below). I've read a lot of good comments about them, and they have supplied adapters to allow use of an existing cable with new camera/monitor purchased from them.

Thank you for your replays. I have a new system on order that should be in tomorrow. Running a new cable is still not out of the question or impossible by any means. I just can't justify this when the current cable is serviceable condition. I will first attempt to splice. I was mainly trying to find out if anyone knew the Pin Locations that ADTH used but I am certain I will figure this out by trial and error when I splice in new line. Again, thanks for your input.
