There are many options for split screens, narrow or wide angles, wired, wireless, Bluetooth... Ect.
Any suggestions or opinions?
I've read of folks using the existing wire and buying adapters. You can also cut and splice the connectors.
I have experience replacing the Intec system, and have a PDF document that shows what I experienced, and documents how I ran new wire. The Intec wire is 6 conductor, and you will only need 4 conductors for the new color camera. I ran new wires because I was mounting 2 cameras (one for toad view and one for longer range rear view). Send me a private message with your email address if you want a copy of the PDF document.
One of your trouble spots may be removing the old, crt type monitor. It is big and heavy, and must be removed from the inside of the dash panel. If the old monitor is not in a good location, it's a good opportunity to move the new lcd monitor to a good location. When you get the old monitor out, you will have a hole in your dash that is larger than the new monitor, so you'll need to find a way to cover the hole. I used plexiglass painted to match the dash color.
Two suggestions: (1) Buy a monitor that will accept 2 or 3 video inputs, as you may later want to mount another camera. (2) consider installing two cameras on the back of the coach. (pulling 2 wires is no more work than pulling one wire)
Two cameras give you a close up view for toad hook up and monitoring the front of the toad, and the other camera gives you a view of the toad windshield and everything behind you (and the lanes on either side). Very helpful when passing and merging.
