rear view camera

I have a 2008 Itasca 38T Suncruiser. We just got back from a three week trip and about two weeks into it the rear camera quit working. I have side cameras and they work fine but the rear camera says no signal. Any ideas? I don't think it is the monitor because the side cameras work.

That is a long cable and sometimes gets in position to rub on the frame. Start with the easy fix and check the fittings on each end. Then if you have to, trace the cable to find the short.

Of it's anything like my Voyager monitor, the connectors behind it can easily come loose.

while your checking connections, swap one of the side camera inputs with the rear camera input and see if works on the other input.

You also can isolate the camera and check the cabling by plugging a DVD or VCR into the the video output cable at the camera and checking the reception on your monitor. That should prove your video cable is good.

Our rear camera is weird too. Sometimes it works perfect & other times it doesn't work at all or flashes off & on. Do you think that would also be loose wires. Our side cameras work fine.

If have the camera unplugged , see if you can plug into the back the monitor or the side camera. If it does not work then probably the camera. Just had a bad rear camera myself.

Man.. you guys are good! I was just wondering how you could isolate a cable issue vs. a camera issue. I love this forum!
