New rear view color monitor

I replaced the B/W Weldex monitor and rear B/W camera with a new color monitor and camera. I purchased my new system from RV Cams, Inc -- Backup Camera Systems and Parts. Great people to work with and Tim was a big help in helping me select the system that would work best for me. The new monitor is a Voyager 7" quad view that connects to my old Weldex cable with an adapter. The rear color camera is a a Weldex that plugs right back in to the old cable and works perfectly with the Voyager color monitor. I also am adding side view voyager side view cameras that will trigger when the when the right or left turn signal is on. I have not installed these yet but the new color monitor works great and the color quality and HD picture are a huge improvement over the old B/W view.

For those that have side view cameras, I know they should be mounted as forward as possible above the floor line and below the mirrors. But what height seems to offer the best side views, thanks

I have the two side view cameras mounted on each side of the coach and they provide a real good view. Now I need to connect the trigger wire for each side view camera to the right and left turn indicator hot wire. Then when I when I turn on the right or left turn indicator the appropriate side view camera will power on and I can see what is coming up the side. There is a bundle of wired coming down the steering column and I am sure the correct wires are in this bundle. But how can I determine which is correct wire for the right and left turn indicator, Thanks.
