Strange side/rear view camera issue


I am having a small problem with my side/rear view cameras and was curious if anyone here might know what's going on.

When I first get driving everything works fine. Video screen is defaulted to rear view, and when I use the turn signal, the view changes to the appropriate side view camera.

However, if I turn on either the headlights or the windshield wipers, the view switches to the right turn camera view, and the right turn signal on the dash and on the outside mirror turn on. They aren't blinking, they're just on steadily. The only way to clear the issue is to pull over, turn off the RV, and then start again.

As you can imagine, this is basically impossible when driving in the rain or at night and is overall just a huge annoyance.

Any idea what might be causing this behavior?

I think I'd start by checking all ground connections. The added current draw of the lights and wiper could be influencing the cameras. Especially make sure that the wipers and lights have good grounds. Using a jumper wire with alligator clips to add ground connections at various places and seeing if the issue is corrected or continues will help narrow down the problem area.
