I have been thinking about upgrading for years. The old monitor has a black and white screen and is very bulky hanging underneath the living room TV. It took up a lot of drivers view. This monitor reminded me of the old small portable B/W TV's. The new monitor has the same 7" screen size but is MUCH lighter and takes up a lot less space.
The new camera is a little smaller than the old and fits in the same pocket that the old camera was in. This took a little time (30 min) because the mounting screw holes for the new camera are different than the old. I had to drill new holes in the old bracket. This camera is suppose to have a better view in day or night. Setting in the driveway, it seems to have a much better view.
I used the existing cable that ran front to back. Both ends (camera and monitor) plugged right in. The power wires and ground to the monitor had to be matched to the new monitor's harness.
Prior to installation, I called the folks at RVCams.com. I told them what I had and set me up with the proper equipment. Camera and monitor cost $393.
