Back-Up Camera Solution

If you have a Holiday Rambler / Monaco rig with LED lights and the mike in the back-up camera comes on when you press the brake pedal, read the following solution from Magnadyne.

We have seen similar issues on Holiday Rambler built vehicles due to the LED tail lights. Some electrical noise is being transmitted up the reverse trigger wire connection which causes a premature trigger to our radio. To correct this, we have suggested to add a common 30 amp relay on the reverse trigger wire so the signal from the backup lights is used to energize the relay and the output of the relay will trigger our radio input. The reason for this relay addition is because the relay requires more voltage/current to energize where our radio input is very electrically sensitive.
The noise on the reverse trigger line is not strong enough to energize the relay which corrects the issue.
Note: The addition of the relay as a solution has not been confirmed by Magnadyne. We have suggested this to a few dealerships and we have not heard any negative comment. This leads us to believe that the addition of the relay has always worked and we continue to recommend it.
