Camera Wiring

I would like to run wire for a new rear view camera in my 1999 Bounder 28T. Has anyone ever pulled the existing backup-only wire from the rear top of the coach to the front, or is it impossible due to configuration? If not, any other suggestions? Thanks!

The wire for our camera runs through the roof. To run a new wire, probably the best way to do it would be to run it under the motorhome. You would need to find a way to get it through the firewall in front, and you would need to run it behind the cap in the rear. I have watched Tiffins being built, so I know there is a space behind the rear cap. However, there is a foam baffle that runs across the rear cap to keep air and critters out. If your rig has something similar, you would have to find a way to get the wire past the baffle.

I have also seen wireless cameras, but I don't know how reliable they are.

Itasca runs their wiring between the end cajp and the back of the coach and down under the coach up thru the frame rail to the front and then up thru the main wire bundle hole. That exactly how I ran my replacement system. Get yours from COSTO for cheaper than if you get it from the manufacture.
