Side camera trigger wire connection

I have a 1995 Newmar with a F54 chassis. I installed a camera system in it but I'm having a hard time figuring out where to tap into power for the trigger wires for the side cameras. I checked the flasher unit but it was power at all times with key on. Thanks for you help.

Do the cameras need a +12v trigger that stays high for the duration the camera is to be on, or will a pulsing +12v do it? Does the camera have the option of using a connection to batt ground, to trigger?

If a pulsing (e.g. as in turn signals flashing), would work, you could tap off the dash turn signal lights.

The turn signal lights should work. Don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks

Trigger

I installed these on my mh and yes the turn single lights does work.It is set up for flashing lights and will stay on until signal is back to neutral position.
For warn when you get them working and if you tow you will panic because your mind will say were is my car.

That is correct, it is set up for a blinking hot wire.
