Rear view camera/monitor acting up - VOYAGER

My Voyager system started acting up this past weekend. I have an older CRT system with one camera up on rear cap. Camera is enclosed in housing that appears just to be held on by adhesive caulking, which limits access to camera itself. Trouble I am having is picture, it is intermittent picture loss and video is breaking up on screen, acts like loose connection since monitor stays on, in other words not a power loss, does not appear to be cable loose at monitor end, can't check the camera connection without removal of housing (so far as I can tell). Night before this happened we had a hard rainstorm with significant wind in direction of camera. Initial thought when leaving was to turn off, go up road a while and let it dry out, then try. It did work significantly better, with occasional very short picture break up, but we were now on very smooth highway and no jostling taking place if bad connection.

Ideas??

I too would suspect a loose or corroded connection.

UPDATE

Took motorhome back to storage last night and my suspicions I guess are confirmed. The monitor came on immediately, picture clear and sharp, no flicker, flash or video breakup. Bumps and shaking had no effect. I think the connection at the camera must be subject to getting wet and creating the issue. Has been dry and warmer for a couple of days.

Looks like I will have to remove the housing and check the connections and maybe attempt to seal them up.

Yours might be very different from my Country Coach but inside the rear closet I have a small square flat panel that can be removed to access the back of camera.

If the same issue shows up when the camera pick-up (at the back of the RV) is exposed to rain. You may have a moisture leak into the unit. This happened in our Gulfstream unit. My unit would do the same thing as you describe but only when it rained.
I built a simple cover just like a cap brim peak made from scraps of clear
plexi glass. A narrow strip on top of camera pick up and one on each side to prevent from water getting into the unit. Problem went away as it was always dry.

It did not effect the vision on the screen. Cost me $3.00

Had the same problem with intermittent picture on our Voyager monitor on our '08 Seabreeze. Took of the panel on top of the dash which gave access to the monitor and connections. Our problem was that when the cable was installed, it was stretched too tight and would come loose from the monitor port. Used a cable tie to pull the cord tight into the monitor port to hold it after I cut a small hole in the wooden camera support to reroute it. Haven't had a problem since .
