Weldex backup camera issue

I have a 2003 Gulfstream Sunvoyager 33 ft. motorhome with the Weldex backup camera system. This RV only has 3,500 miles on it (dont really use it much) and the camera used to work the first few years we had it. Now when the RV is put into reverse, the monitor comes on, and I can hear sound, but the picture is white, ie, no picture. I tried reconnecting the cables to the monitor and trying the other input on it but no difference. I have not yet attempted to take the rear camera down, as the cable for it that goes thru into the fiberglass is puttied/caulked in place. If i dig this out and pull on the cable, will i be able to reach the other end of the cable where the camera gets plugged in? i dont want to risk digging this out if im not going to be able to reach the connector. I can just recaulk it yeah, but this is still a brand new RV to me. Everything is still perfect as the day I got it. Just wondered if anyone else had this brand of RV with similar issues. Since it doesnt get used much, im not really looking to spend a few hundred dollars in upgrading the backup camera. I would just like to troubleshoot why it doesn't work any longer. It looks like the cable coming out to the camera screws into the back of the camera so i dont know if i would be able to connect it directly to the monitor to see if its a cabling issue. any other suggestions to try troubleshooting this?

You will likely see the house cables as you get inside the coach fiberglass housing near the camera. There is likely a power cable, and possibly 2 cables terminated with RCA plugs, albeit the cables could be terminated with some other type plug. If there are plugs there, audio is likely red and the video yellow. You should be able see these connections as you trace the camera pigtails inside the cavity on the MH.

You could also put some other video source into your monitor to check the monitor circuit. (I assume your monitor does not have a dual switched input. This would be my first area to look at actually.)

You could get a video source from a video camera, DVD player etc for this test.

Good luck

Got it fixed. I removed the rear camera and connected it str8 out the back of the monitor. It still didnt work, but when i moved the cable, it showed an image for a brief moment! After grabbing and pulling on the plug I realized that there was something loose in it. I ended up cutting the connector off the camera and out of the back of the coach and hard wired them together. All is working good now!
