Recommended replacement cameras for this coach?
I had issues with my back up camera back when coach was new. It went on for years. It seems more likely to do it when the weather was HOT. I've never had issues with side cameras.
The rear camera would flicker on and off and finally go blank. Turning off Aladdin and back on solved the issue.--for a while. Dealer would trouble shoot numerous times and never got it. They replaced the monitor to a sony. I think the old monitor was a weldex/. Still would flicker off and on.
Finally I'll pulled on all the wires behind the dash mounted monitor. There is a control box back there. Took everything apart and lightly sanded all connections and cleaned with spray connection cleaner. I also pulled the camera out of the back and did the same with the cable connection back there. Did something right cause it seems to be working for the last couple of years.
If you can find the box behind the monitor, I believe mine was labeled "left input' 'right input' 'rear input', so something to that effect. Might try switching left and right to try to identify if the problem is before the box or after the box. I don't think you can do that with the rear camera input cause I think (again, from memory several years ago), the plugs are different.
I also added a small computer fan behind the monitor to help circulate the hot air. There is a lot of heat generated behind the panel and I think that may help as well.
Good Luck. I felt like I was chasing my tail for quite some time.
