Has anyone had their backup camera blank out on bumpy roads?

Whenever I would hit a bump my backup camera I use to keep an eye on my TOAD would blank out. When I was on really bad roads it could blank out for several minutes.

At first I thought it was the camera itself, but I've since discovered it occurs to the side cameras as well. I've replaced the receiver, but when I tap the side of the dash/housing the receiver/monitor screen seems to flicker and change colors. Now I realize this is not a real world test, but it doesn't make me feel confident that my next trip (6/1) the problem will be resolved.

I talked to the manufacturer and they said I had the receiver/monitor installed properly and there really wasn't another way to secure the receiver. I also asked if they had seen this problem before with this particular model, but apparently this issue has not been a common problem.

It sounds like you are loosing either the power or ground to the monitor.
Turn it on and give the wires a good pull everywhere you can reach. Watch the screen as you do this, or get someone to watch as you give the wires a good going over.
Happy Glamping.

Yeah I figured that too. I couldn't find a bad connection no matter how much I wiggled the connections.

As a last resort to check your power supply, you can get a 12 volt light with pigtails on it. Connect it to the positive and negative wires going into the monitor.
Go for a drive and keep an eye on the light. If it flickers at all, you will know there is an interruption of power or ground somewhere.
No flickering, and it might just be a problem inside the monitor. It just doesn't like bumps!
Good luck and Happy Glamping.
